  1. P-51D Exhaust Stacks 1:48 Eduard Brassin - For Airfix Kit Eduard offer us two new sets of exhaust stacks for the new Airfix P-51D. One set with fairings and one set without. Once the pour blocks are cleaned off either set will be a drop in fit; Exhaust Stacks (648336) Exhaust Stacks With Fairing (648344) Review samples courtesy of
  2. New set of 1/48 vectoring thrust exhausts for Kitty Hawk Su-35 release.
  3. Hi, I'm fairly new to modelling aircraft. I'm getting on quite good with my Mosquito in 1/48 scale and as I approach finishing the build phase of the project I'm thinking ahead to how to weather the aircraft. As the Mosquito was built chiefly out of wood would it mean that it had smoother, cleaner surfaces than aircraft made of metal with all their panelling? Let me explain what I mean: I've read articles where modellers choose to pre-shade panel lines before putting on the finished coat. Would you do this with the wings and fuselage of the Mosquito? My second question is how to put on exhaust stains on the wings that came from the engines?
  4. P-40B Resin Prop & Exhaust Upgrades (for Airfix) 1:48 Ultracast Ultracast have a reputation for exceptional quality parts, and a penchant for WWII aircraft, so when the new Airfix P-40B was released, some new stuff was to be expected. Well, here it is! Their products are high quality resin, finely cast and with sensible casting blocks. The sets arrive in a ziplok bag with a predominantly white header card that extends down the back to provide a little extra support for the parts. There are three sets in this batch, two types of props, and a set of highly detailed exhaust stacks, as follows: P-40B/C Tubular Exhausts (48266) Two sets of exhaust stacks with high detail and delicate hollow tips, and prominent welding lines as per the real things. The casting block is simplicity itself to remove, and you are left with a pair of tabs on the rear of the parts that fit into the fuselage sides, in the same manner as the original kit parts. P-40B Hollow Steel Prop & Spinner Curtiss 11' Blade 614-1C1.5-12 (48267) The hollow props that were fitted to the early P-40s were made of steel for strength, and had sharp "needle" tips. This set includes a 2-part spinner with a back-plate onto which three blades attach via a flat section at the root of the blade. There is a little wiggle-room here when fitting, so ensure you have them correctly aligned on the base before the glue cures. With the three blades in place, the spinner cap is installed, and you can admire the superb raised detail around the spinner. P-40B Aluiminium Prop & Spinner Curtiss 11' Blade 89201-3 (48267) Lighter aluminium blades were also fitted later to the P-40, with a slightly broader tip to the blades, and some minor differences to the spinner's back-plate in the shape of the blade exit points, and were usually seen on the AVG airframes. Construction is identical to the hollow steel set above, and the same cautionary note applies. Conclusion Great sets, and when I get around to re-starting my stalled build (I seem to have a growing number), I'll be sure to use them. As usual with resin, take the precaution of wearing a mask when cutting or sanding resin, as the tiny particles are harmful to your health if breathed in. Washing the parts in warm water will also improve the adhesion of paint, as there may still be some moulding release agent on the parts when you receive them. Highly recommended.

  5. I always thought the props turned anticlockwise, which was why they always turned to port (left) as the centripetal forced helped with roll rate!
  6. Bell P-39Q/N exhaust set Eduard 1:32 (632-081) - The Kittyhawk P-39/N, reviewed HERE has already had quite a lot of etch and resin released for it from Eduard. They have released another set, containing a pair of very nice exhausts for it. The resin moulding is well up to the standard we have come to expect from Brassin and includes the connecting flanges and bolt heads which attach each exhaust stub to the manifold. Each stub is more indented than hollowed out, but with some dark paint it will give a better impression of depth than the kit parts, You could always open them out a bit more if you wish. Fitment is easy, just removed for the pouring stub, sand flat and glue to the model. Conclusion A nice simple addition that will add that little extra to your finished model. Highly recommended.

  7. F-4J Exhaust Nozzles (For Academy kit) 1:72 Eduard Brassin The new tool Academy F-4J is a great kit. Like any plastic kit, injection moulding can only do so much and resin replacements can enhance some parts. These new exhausts from Eduard are a direct drop in replacement for the kit parts. The two PE parts must first be added at the engine end, then the engine end cap put on. Once this is done they go straight onto the kit. Review sample courtesy of
  8. Notice: Go here to see a later post in this thread to see the final result: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234991809-finished-homemade-spray-booth-project-an-attempt/?p=2186396 I will have to do some detective work, but I thought I'd start by making this thread. I acquired this nice transparent storage case shown in the image below, and I have 6x used Noctua NF-P12 fans that fit nicely at the bottom of the case. I think I can make this work, but there is one problem that I am not sure how to deal with: Q: How do I power the six 12V (1watt) fans from the 230V power outlet? Presumably this is easy, but I have really no idea. Hopefully someone knowledgeable can chime in and state the obvious solution. That would be much appreciated. Putting on a hose and finishing the rear part behind the fans seems easy, so the power conversion problem is what seem difficult for me at this point. Ah, I forgot to point out the specifications for the NF-P12 fans: DC 12V (unsure if the 'direct current' part is important) Size: 120 x 120 x 25mm Rotational speed = approx 1300 rpm Airflow = 92,3 m3/h = 1,54m3/min = 54 cfm Static pressure = 1,68mm H2O Acoustic noise = ca 20 dB Input power = 1,08 W Input current = 0,09 A 1,54 x 6 = 9,24 m3/min = 324 cfm (unsure if it makes good sense multiplying these numbers by six) 9,24 seem to be double of what a popular spray booth seem to push out, though I am not certain the numbers for these two solutions are directly comparable. *unsure* Edit: Hm, I wonder if the six fans would be powerful enough. The popular spray booth on Amazon uses supposedly a 25W fan, which seem more powerful than my 6,5W setup. Not sure what to think about this. I have a 15cm wide table fan that uses 20W, that one doesn't really feel that powerful to me. Hm, I vaguely recall my compressor having 17L/min airflow, roughly 40-50psi constant pressure, unless I am totally mistaken. Maybe around 9L/min with 25 psi? Just guessing though.
  9. IAI Kfir Exhaust Nozzle (4591) 1:48 Aires The set comes in a blown plastic box on a cardboard sleeve. The parts are protected from bouncing around and breaking by a thick foam pad. The kit exhaust is pretty good on its own but with the single piece moulding Kinetic went for it does make the painting of the exhaust and rear section of the engine rather difficult. With this set this is alleviated by having all the sections separate allowing them to be painted before fitting together. Each of the three resin parts are beautifully moulded and with their attachments to the casting blocks being quite narrow, they should be easy to remove. The etched EGT web fits onto the rear face of the engine which is in turn fitted to the nozzle duct. At the other end the exhaust petals are attached. The kit does not need to be modified in any way as this set is a direct replacement for the kits parts. Conclusion This is a very nice looking set of resin which some may not make much difference to the detail level, but it certainly make for an easier paint job. The resin does appear to be finer to my eye, and looks more authentic. I will definitely be using this set on my example. Highly recommended.
