  1. Thanks for the heads up "Tiger" but there are a fair few on this site that will NOT entertain facebook on there computers, or allow it to get near, here is a link, courtesy of Armorama modelling site to photos and details of said kit:- https://armorama.com/news/gecko-austin-k2-y-heavy-ambulance
  2. This topic has been running since Sunday elsewhere on the forum see here

    Acrylics primer

    Try Halfords Acrylic Car primer..............I use a white and a grey, others are available...........does away with getting the airbrush out and all the cleaning associated with it..........I find they dry hard, smooth and stick well, in over 40 plus years, never had a problem with it
  4. The search function on this site is absolute rubbish.........the way I conduct a search is through "Google" I type the search item into the box BUT at the end I put in "Britmodeller" I generally get the exact item I am interested in and it goes back upto and over 10 years..........much better way to search the site...............I typed in Hawker Hunter on this site, I got everything made by Hawker, Hawker Siddeley every type of Hunter and any other aircraft which had Hunter associated with its name, this included just about every american aircraft, Nimrod, if somebody was building another a
  5. I spray it on..............I suppose it depends on the size of the needle in your airbrush.........I use a .4 I think.............but seems to work with other needles as well(for me) I expect my bottle of galeria to last my life time. After use, I wash the airbrush under a hot water tap........the stuff I have is like water and the reservoir/cup goes down quiet quickly so not unusual to top up 2-3 times during a spraying session
  6. I have never diluted Galeria, never had white spots yet....................and I have been using it for years
  7. Never too old - I am 73 and STILL my stash continues to grow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. That thread was started in 2016 and 5 years later where are we? That reminds me very much of the Classic Airframes Fairey Gannet AEW3........box art done, tooling started then it fizzled out, never to be due to company going bust........................this seems to be the same...........box art done - years ago and fizzled out........................somebody about that same time was doing a 1/48 Buccaneer, box art done, then that fizzled out........................I think we are grabbing at straws
  9. I do believe a two seater was built, a trainer I think. Now for some unknown reason manufacturers failed to realise this and insist on doing fighters/single seaters all the while, which I find rather boring..........last kit I bought was Ali's two seater conversion for the Hunter.............so many options for two seat Hunters should keep me busy for a while, but would like to see signs of a 2 seat Venom
  10. In my experience many sellers mention its posted, but they only post once per week, possibly a Friday.........another is if its a large company using a parcel carrier and have a trailer backed onto the deck which is left there and changed once or twice per week, the shipper will mark it as posted, which to him, it is, but, its only gone out to be packed in the trailer. That trailer may not be exchanged for a couple of days so, anything marked as "posted" is in effect "posted" but its only outside in the trailer in the yard. I have had parcels arrive within 24 hours and others over 3 weeks..
  11. A few PR spitfires to be seen on Malta here: Best if you rewind to beginning of film
  12. Having driven many, many trucks for many years, it is very realistic and unusual as a 6x2(6x4?).............................It was rumoured in many circles that if "God made anything better, he kept it for himself" Love the model, work thats gone into it and the perseverence. How long did it take to build?
  13. Best war series by far in the 60s was Combat. Based on a company travelling through Germany throughout the war.............episode one starts in England prior to embarking the ships for the D-Day. The 45 minute episode usually featured a guest star/celebrity hroughout its 152 episodes, heres just one featuring James Coburn playing a superb part.........all these episodes can be seen on YouTube
  14. For those of you intererested The Tank Museum has its own YouTube channel where it discusses every piece of machinery in the museum. Each type is givena 20-30 minute history and breakdown of the type, They must have over 100 documenteries on there, they do a walk around of the museum, breakdown of staff members and how they came to be working at the museum...............................an ideal way to dip into 30 mins of interesting fact............having served for numerous years on tanks in the 60s-70s I personally like the breakdown of the Crocadile flame thrower.................see what y
  15. I got the exact same set and its done everything that I have ever wanted from it...............value for money @ £25 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/352604692341?mkevt=1&mkcid=28&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=352604692341&targetid=1140014333902&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9045466&poi=&campaignid=12128843707&mkgroupid=117235444295&rlsatarget=pla-1140014333902&abcId=9300483&merchantid=7300134&gclid=Cj0KCQiAjKqABhDLARIsABbJrGlnsH8iDe0ppKxKJrrerFmR_JZDZZ7HxytDfmqr_w5LC08gwsG4kVUaAqXW
