  1. Hi I am normally an aircraft modeller, however I thought I would like to try IBG's Bedford QL Refueller. The kit is posing no problems, however I am trying to make it like the QL in these photos. These photos were taken by my dad in 1957, at RAF Benbecula, while he was posted there following his trade training as an instrument fitter. The photos show the vehicle to be a variant with only two booms, whereas the IBG kit has three booms. I have cross referenced the IBG kit with Airfix's 1/76 kit and I have noticed that the plumbing is different as well as there being two comes near the rest of the tank. Could anyone identify the specific type of QL is in the photos and confirm that it does have the two comes and and different plumbing than what is offered in the kit? If possible, could anyone please provide either photos or scale drawings of the type? Many thanks.
  2. I opened the above today with the intention of having a look through the kit and I don't know how it happened but I started it..... Now this is the TK Maxx deal (with bits for the car door swapped for the bubble top) and my intention had been that this would wait a LONG while till I was in a position that I felt (skill wise) I was ready to tackle it. No going back now..... Anyway, this isn't really going to be a WIP but more a quest for guidance and help..... So, got as far as I want to go at the moment (need to take a step back and THINK about this - better prime and paint the progress so far). And the question (for the moment!) is I would DEARLY welcome any advice from those who have built this (deviation from the instruction steps, when to paint, what to be careful of) before I ruin a perfectly good massive box of plastic that until today sat happily minding it's on business on top of a bookcase Thanks in advance! Ian
  3. Hello gang, my next project is Lukgraph's lovely Dragon Rapide. I've never built resin before, but it looks reasonably straightforward (famous last words!). I have a question regarding its rigging. Photoetch is supplied, roughly of the form of an attachment tab for each end of a wire, plus (obvs!) the wire itself. The instructions are silent on how the wires connect to the wings. I could surface mount them, but I don't know how good that would look. Does anyone with a history of Lukgraph biplanes have any experience or insight they could share? Thanks in advance, Mike
  4. Hi guys, I broke one of the wheels of my 1/18 UT Models Porsche 911 GT1. I have a wheel insert from S.M.S., that I want to use to make a rubber mould. Do you think it's possible to make a mould with this insert ? And can you explain how to do it ? : Any help and tips are welcome. Sincerely Pascal
  5. Hi All This may be a long shot but I'm trying to find details of the Thunderbolts my dad flew in Burma, he was on 79 Sqn for a very short time, then 34 Sqn to the end of the war. I have his log books but he never recorded the aircraft serials just the Sqn letter. My only reference is the RAF Thunderbolts book which is good but unfortunately doesn't help with my quest with the possible exception of one 79 Sqn aircraft with the code "Z" which he has in his log book, but there is a problem, the Aircraft is silver, my dad always said he didn't fly a silver Thunderbolt, I had a look through the book and there is no record of 79 Sqn losing an aircraft with the letter "Z" so is this the same aircraft in his log book? He was only with 79 for a very short time, so did he just forget? There is one photo in the book of a 34 Sqn aircraft that my dad supplied (I think he's on the wing?) which we know the details for, but it's not one he flew, so if you can, help! Another question that may be easier, if the silver 79 Sqn aircraft does turn out to be right then, were the RAF T-Bolts painted silver or polished metal? Thanks John
  6. Hello All, I mostly model aircraft and railways and am utterly clueless on ships... I am hoping to build a model of the ship my Grandpa's was on; HMS Dianella which was a Flower Class Corvette. I have managed to find a rough service history and two or three photos via Google and the Imperial War Museum but other than knowing enough to be fairly sure none of the Flower Class kits are quite right for me, I have nothing which helps me know where to start. Are there any good reference sources which would help with drawings or good photos from a few angles? I expect with the nature of the subject that there will not be anything on the Dianella specifically, but with it being a fairly mass produced type of ship I guess that there will be some guidance on what the ships tended to look like if made at certain yards between certain dates? Thank you in advance for any help on this. (and for letting me into your mystical watery section of BM)
  7. ok so having got to grips with the forum etc I have tried doing some simple research here on Su85s (the Russian self propelled gun) and found I keep getting 0 results... yet I know I've posted my own article about my build (maybe the forum doesn't show my own threads to me?) and can't imagine in the history of the forum no one else has built one or even discussed one? Is it jist me? Help :-) steve

    I've taken it into my head to make amends for my Vietnam GB PT-76 fail by converting the (essentially identical) PST 1/72 BTR-50 into an OT-62B by kitbashing it with the venerable ACE kit. The latter is a bit short on fine detail, so I was wondering if any of you fellows could point me towards some decent references for this type.....I'm hoping to build the version with the 7.62mm MMG/82mm RR turret. One of the things I'd particularly like to find would be some detailed shots of the 82mm T-21 "Tarasnice" Recoilless Rifle as mounted on this turret. I should probably add that I've already found the walk-around for the captured Egyptian example at Latrun, but this vehicle lacks many of the features I'm interested in: http://www.primeportal.net/apc/andre_patschke/ot-62_topaz/

    RN Jetstream T3

    My A Model Jetstream 31 has just arrived and I have a look at it and as far as I can tell it looks good. Interestingly this boxing contains the underfuselage baggage pod for the planned Jetstream 32, although there is only the markings for the Economist machine. However I want to convert this to a RN Jetstream T3 and am seeking some help from BMers. I have got some pictures of the T3 and know that it has eyebrow windows, but the issue is the underfuselage radar pod. Does anybody have any 1/72 drawings and placement details of the pod please that I can make a pod. I wonder if any of the aftermarket providers will do the pod (and decals) for the T3? Freightdog?? Thanks, John
  10. By (un)popular demand I've added this as a poential third model if I manage to complete one of the other two entries (Fuji Fokker D-VII I'm looking at you...). It's the VEB Mi-4 (Hound if my memory of my Observer's book of Aircraft is serving me well) in the archaic scale of 1/100. So... in a rather compact box, what do you get? Some rather nice artwork.... The english translation of the instructions.... The decals - not to be used!! I'm intending to do a simple USSR version in green/blue... Fuselage halves - rivets ahoy, so will need some sanding. Plastic is silver, but rather brittle as per most VEB kits of this vintage... Blades... The other parts, or possibly the bones of a brontosaurus. Not sure yet, although VEB have kindly decided to include half a windmill in there! Clear bits... My kit probably dates from 82... The goodies, starting with the glue.... and... this little gem Wrapped in greaseproof paper, it may look like plastic explosive (honestly) but is actually... Plasticine noseweight. You have to love this!! When was the last time a kit manufacturer included the nose weight, with a quantity that would sink the Warspite? Alas, this will be going on my nipper's ceiling, so the plastique won't be being used, but will be banked for the next tail sitter!! Watch this space. Maybe* *space watching not guaranteed to materialse into kit-building. Terms and conditions apply.
  11. Apologies, as this has been asked a million times before................. Looking for the correct, ( or near as dammit), colours for a GR5 and GR7, project in the near future! I usually use Humbrol, and Xtracolour, but was wondering if there are any Tamiya rattle cans that I could use ? Regards Steve
