  1. I've never felt the need to ever hose paint onto any of my models personally. The whole point of MRP is that it's thinned to a ratio that is ready to go, sure you can thin it more, as I do sometimes. If you're saying it's no use for large areas then take a look at this guy's work using MRP, 1/32 Bf-109 https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=138240#p2394284 1/32 Do-335 https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=137337
  2. Explain this please. I've been using MRP for a couple of years now and up to yet never found it limited to anything. The beauty of MRP is that you can build your colour up slowly, even the lighter colours have excellent coverage. My be your the type that like to hose your paint on and expect full coverage in one pass? If so no MRP isn't for you.

    There'll be no hesitating from me when I get my call up, i'm 60 so thinking/hoping back end of March through April? Thankfully i've been working all through this so i've at least been able to get out every week day. My heart goes out to all that haven't been able to and have been stuck inside.

  7. Whilst that is true in this particular thread. @caughtinthemiddle is referring to all the times @madcop feels the need to vent his spleen every time Eduard is mentioned, sometimes verging on personal remarks about Mr Sulc.

  9. Hopefully a re-tooled Fw190D, that would then complete their Fw190 series. Tim.

  13. Hi, Has anyone got any news about this boxing? It seems to have fallen off the radar. I've been waiting patiently since June to get my hands on one as I missed out on getting the previous boxing with the metal U/C. I've read to many stories of the kit's plastic U/C legs giving up under the weight of the kit to risk not building either of the above. I know Scale Aircraft Conversions do white metal sets but for the kit but I was less than impressed with the ones I purchased a while back for a Fw190 build, they were very poor castings. Tim.
