    RAF VENOM NF3

    Hi Folks I'm planning on building the old 32nd Matchbox Sea Venom, but plan on doing the NF3 of 151 Sqn, RAF Leuchars option. But since the RAF NF3 wasn't fitted with ejection seats i was wondering if anyone knows or has any pictures, diagrams of the seats fitted in place of the ejection seats, internet searches come up short. Any help would be most grateful. Cheers Darren

    Tamyia chieftain 1:35 paint colours

    I've been using Tamiya XF-65 Field Grey and NATO black, its a good enough match for me especially once a couple of washes are applied. For me i'd never use NATO green as its too green for British vehicles. Darren

    English Electric Lightning T4 - 226 OCU

    Will follow your build, I have the T5 in the stash, nice kit but some weak panel lines in places and some fictitious panel lines in other places. It fits perfect when mated to the Airfix F1/3 fuselage and the Airfix nose ring and rear ring fit perfect in the Sword kit. Cheers Darren
  7. I will be following your build I have this in the stash with the same decals, all part of my aircraft to build from RAF Leuchars. Strange thing is that they operated the Mosquito from RAF Leuchars but also flew Catalinas from Woodhaven on the banks of the River Tay. I like the Brass barrels they are a big improvement so i might invest in them. Darren

    Lightning F3

    Very nice finish indeed I'm half way into my 23 Sqn F3 build did you follow Airfix instructions on the cable ducting? as yours appears to be far to far forward at the front and slightly short at the rear, only noticed when i was following the instructions that it made it look off so i adjusted mine accordingly. Cheers Darren

    Airfix 1/48 lightning 23 squadron markings

    Since the photobucket farce and a duffish laptop I've not sorted out photo sharing yet, but I'll see if I can sort something out. My grandad finished up at Leuchars at the end of the war and settled in nearby Guardbridge, my uncle's grew up there and have loads of pictures of Leuchars aircraft from the late 50s onwards but won't let me share them,, which is annoying.

    Airfix 1/48 lightning 23 squadron markings

    I grew up next to Leuchars and the Lightning is my favorite aircraft, I've just looked through my old knackered laptop and found a photo taken from the old control tower, and on the pan is 4 white tailed F3s coded J,K,E last one I can't read also a T4 coded Z all have the Eagles facing right (to the rear)on the right side. Strangely enough behind them is a Javilin which looks to be in 23 Sqn markings and behind that is 43 Sqn Hunter T7. Just found another F3 white tail coded C XP756 it's rear on the right too. Having looking at all my pictures of seems that on the right they faced rear and on left they face front, even when they had plain tails with small discs, and early F6s, looked at my 11 Sqn too they ask to be the same, but at sometime when they went back to large Eagles they changed to all facing front. .

    Light Stone or Sand Yellow? (Challenger)

    You could be right on the Matildas scheme, but my answer is for the Challenger colour. Darren

    Light Stone or Sand Yellow? (Challenger)

    Defo Light Stone, Xtracrylics at Hannants is a good match. Darren

    AFV Club RAAC Centurion Mk 5.1

    Another Great looking Early War Centurion Darren
  15. Nice Early War Centurion. When you get your AFV mantlet cover, try making the Barrel hole bigger at the top or bottom, enough so it will slide down the barrel past the fume extracter, then you can attach and backfill the hole with filler or use a section of PVA soaked tissue as a patch.
