    RNZAF P-40 colours

    No worries. I think the roundels in the kit look fairly dark to me but I don't know if they are dark enough. They are certainly darker than on the box art. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    That then begs the question, are the markings correct in the kit? The history of the actual aircraft is not really important to me, I just wanted a model of a RNZAF P-40 in these colours. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    Well that's all very confusing. It sounds like the kit painting guide is correct then. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    It's the colour Curtiss used instead of Sky Type S. I've heard it described as like Sky Type S but more Grey. thanks Mike

    That makes it sound like the Curtiss DuPont Sky Grey might be a better likeness. I'll have to look when I get home. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    Thanks for the help. I'll be going with Foliage Green and a slightly lightened Sky Grey then. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    Hi Alan I have Foliage Green and 2 different Sky Grey's in my paint selection. I've got Sky Grey seen on FAA aircraft and I have the Curtiss DuPont Sky Grey, which was used instead of RAF Sky Type S - would either of those be fairly close? It doesn't have to be spot on, as long as it's roughly similar! thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    Yeah I know, which is why I thought it was odd that the instructions quote an RAAF colour for a RNZAF aircraft. I thought perhaps they might have meant RAF Dark Green or USAAF Olive Drab. The kit decals are in a darker Blue. thanks Mike
  10. In my experience of building Eduard and recent Airfix kits, I'm not in the slightest bit interested in the Airfix kit, I'll happily wait for the Eduard kit. Eduard kits for the most part are much better than Airfix and I've built a few of each in both 1/48 and 1/72. thanks Mike

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    I've got myself the new Special Hobby 1/72 Kittyhawk Mk III (P-40K) and I want to check the colours for the RNZAF one on the box art. The instructions say Foliage Green on top and Grey-Green (I think they mean RAF Sky Type S) underneath. Would this be correct? The Special Hobby P-40 kits are brilliant btw, everyone should make one! thanks Mike
  12. The 1/48 Hunter F.6 is out now. thanks Mike

    Matchbox HMS KELLY

    John Snyder suggested Mountbatten Pink if modelling her in the Med. Flyhawk have announced a new HMS Kelly kit in 1/700. It will be the best by a long mile, when it eventually emerges. thanks Mike
  14. We've had it in stock for a few days. Looks good. thanks Mike
