  1. Nearly finished the James Holland book, Brothers in Arms about the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry from D-Day to VE-Day. This has got me thinking about doing a 1/35 scale Firefly VC. So my questions are, as I’m a builder of aircraft and not AFV’s, is the RFM kit the way to go? Also is there any decals for the SRY? Had a trawl on the internet and cannot see any. TIA
  2. Possibly done to death but here goes my question About to start the ZM F-4J but will be done as a 74sq aircraft. Kit gives both J & S cockpit parts. Which should be used as I believe the aircraft were re-worked before hand over to the RAF. Have a list of other bits and pieces to sort out on the kit. TIA
  3. Did the F-4J's used by 74sq retain the catapult hooks under the fuselage or were they blanked off? TIA
  4. thanks fo the replies, that sorts that one out.
  5. Looking at doing a 74sq F-4J Phantom using the 1/48 Zoukei Mura offering. Question is which one, the Navy or Marines boxing? As far as I can see, the main difference is the weapons sprue but I may be wrong.
  6. Asking this for a mate and if it's in the wrong forum then I apologise. Looking for some replacement parts for a Trumpeter kit and after sending an email to their customer service off the web site have heard nothing. Does anybody have another contact for them? TIA
  7. Have seen a 1/32 ZM P-51D for sale at what can be classed as a steal. Wonder how it stands against the Tamiya kit regards build. I know that ZM offers a lot of detail that will not be seen when closed up. TIA

    silver dope

    Apologies if this has been asked before so here goes. Doing the Tamiya 1/32 Mosquito as an RAAF aircraft which calls for a silver doped airframe. Would Alclad white aluminium be a good match for the colour? TIA
  9. Tried it on scrap with no barrier between the lacquer and Alclad lacquer with no adverse reaction. Went ahead on the kit and again went down well.
  10. Is it ok to use Alclad over mr. color paint, the lacquer paint not the acrylic paint?
  11. Building the 1/24 car door tiffie and wondering about the seat harness. Kit gives both early and late seats which depends on which aircraft being built, but instructions only shows harness for the early type. If using the later type, is it the same harness used or should it be the same as the bubble top. Difference is the later type comes from the back of the seat where as the early type comes from the head cushion. Hope this makes sense.
  12. thanks for the advice, will try it over the weekend
  13. air in the cup causing the paint to bubble up
  14. Been using a H&S infinity CP-R for the last couple of years with no problems. Stripped it down today to clean it and when reassembled I’m now getting blow back. Have tried different things but still no good. Anybody out there had a similar experience and if so, what cured it. TIA
