    Launch 14 - Cooper's Rocket

    A great project and admiring your detail modelling. Doc
  2. Great history and superb build Elger. Subtle weathering looks spot on and a tremendous amount of detail in the build. Thanks for sharing. Doc

    Ju52 desert camo scheme

    Thanks guys all very helpful info, knew I should ask here first To elaborate a little this is part of a 2 ship commission build, and the request was to produce a desert scheme similar to the one shown below:- I realise this one is again a warbird (tailwheel giveaway?) but I quite like the scheme although detail photos are a little scarce online. The first of the commission builds being an Eagles Dare Ju52 which I completed last week:- Thanks again Graham, Chris and Jure and my hunt continues for desert scheme references. Alas I fear the camo might be a DIY job All the best Doc

    Ju52 desert camo scheme

    Hi all, I'm looking to build a 1/72 Ju52/3m in desert North Africa scheme and like the look of the image below:- So can anyone tell me what theatre this one is from? Also if anyone has any profiles for the full livery that would be great. Cheers Doc

    SAS Jeep (Tamiya 1:35)

    Good start there and having started exactly the same kit yesterday I'm at about the same position. What are the extra details you have? I'm looking to get a much better pair of Vickers guns than the kit offering, any ideas? Cheers Doc

    IJA Ho-Ni Colours?

    After some advice guys. I have to repaint a japanese Ho-Ni for a friend in 3 colour camo and hope you can help with the colours I need. It should look something like this when finished:- Any idea what the 3 colours I need, preferably Tamiya but open to other options. I bought the Vallejo early IJA set but none of them seem to match the light colour, nearer Tamiya Buff or Desert Yellow really. Any help appreciated. Cheers Doc (Armour rookie)

    Source for cable wrap?

    Thx for the reply guys, I'm sure this is available off the shelf as I have seen it on quite a few builds, have tried Hiro and many other sites Rick with no success. I may have to go down the route Colin suggests either with a wrapped strip or spiral cut clear tube. If I do ever find it I'll post a link here Cheers Doc

    Source for cable wrap?

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows where I can get hold of the plastic spirowrap cable sheath for braided cable? Shown here on Imster's wonderful NSR500 build http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234986850-tamiya-honda-nsr500-1984/page-6 . Tried to PM Imster but no reply so wonder if anyone knows where I can get hold of this? Cheers Doc

    1/12 Matchbox Vincent

    Thanks for the kind words Ian and yes I hear what you are saying about the mounting rods. I had intended using acrylic rod or block and still might for the finished article, just had some s/s tube to hand. Of course I could have displayed it with the rear stand down as most people do but to me the Vin looks best with both wheels on the ground. By the way the rear stand in the kit is too long as standard to display folded up so needs surgery! So when is that 1/8 Black Shadow going to make an appearance...... Cheers Doc

    1/12 Matchbox Vincent

    Thx guys for your kind words. Yes MW of the 2 versions of this kit the Revell is definitely the worse in terms of soft molds and even an inaccurate speedo decal....kmh not mph.....! Cheers Doc

    1/12 Matchbox Vincent

    Thx Billy, Yes I remember getting the thing over compression used to make my Dad's face very red! I hadn't intended adding a tax disc originally but as further reference photos of the bike emerged it was very prominent on the nearside. The tax disc holder was homemade from stainless along with the none standard horn cover which I both replicated on the model. I used some thin ali shape cut and folded as per the original and added an image of a '74 tax disc after printing out reduced to 7mm width. Amazing what you can find on t'internet All the best Doc

    Cheers Marc Engine had a gloss black base and then Alclad Polished Aluminium and Chrome although if you're modelling the Black Shadow the whole engine has to be black. Cheers Doc

    1/12 Matchbox Vincent

    So the Vincent is near enough complete and thought I would post photos of the build as it stands right now. As you can see I have bought a Tamiya 1/12 display case and made a base with logo to set it off. I actually have more photos now of the real bike so I could generate more detail such as tax disc '74. Thanks for looking and next on the bench Fujimi's Suzuki RGV500, Schwantz style Cheers Doc
