  1. Hi chaps, I wonder if someone here could clear up some confusion I’m having regarding the Xtracolor Mica paints. I’ve searched around but haven’t found any definitive answers. Xtracolor produce two Mica topcoats; X368 Mica 1 and X369 Mica 2. In the description of X368 Mica 1 is “acrylic base”. Does this mean that it is an acrylic paint or does it mean it is formulated to go on top of an acrylic base? Is it safe to put over an enamel base? I’m presuming X369 Mica 2 is a standard enamel paint and can be thinned with enamel thinners but what about t
  2. Hi guys, something from several years ago before I joined the forum. Up for sale on ebay so thought I would give it 15 mins of fame before it goes to someone else’s display case. Not much to say really, xtracolor 83 over 76. Sealed with an ‘I can’t remember’ satin varnish. Cart in tamiya acrylic german grey xf63(?) Glue bottle is for scale. Cheers, Tony
  3. Good morning, I have put in an order from hannants and acquired some of their Xtracolor range. Apart from the obcenely long drying time, does anyone happen to have any advice regarding brush painting with these? Cheers, Ash
  4. Hi all. My most recent project has come to an end. Minicrafts little 737 kit is rather simple, but also a joy to build. Added antennas, and beacon lights. Decals are from Max decals. Paint from Xtracolor (Maersk blue) Humbrol ("Boeing grey", corroguard, nose) and Alclad for leading edges of wings and vertical/horizontonal stabilisors. Here goes: Cheers Robin

  6. Fellow Modellers, Finally had some time to photograph the first finished example of a series Westlands Wessex helicopters.. As extras are added the Cobra cockpit and interior. Almost completely empty with just a few seats . Thanks to Mr. Evans from Whirlybird I was able to add the extra long range fuel tank to the port side. This little gem adds so much importance to the model. It will be accompanied in a diorama by Bedford Tactical Refueller and some figurines. Excellent decals from L Decals Studio and the box decals from Italeri. The FOD cover is constructed from MiliPut. RBF tags ar
  7. Modellers, Today my Buccaneer in RAF colors during the Desert War. Enough has been told abouth the kit, so on with the pics. Regards, Dirk (Orion MPA) Next time the Royal Navy Buccaneer.
  8. History From 1954 until 1964, the Royal Netherlands Naval Air Arm (MLD) operated three Sikorsky helicopters. Besides their registration numbers, also names were painted on one side of the clam door (Jezebel-Salome-Cleopatra). Assigned to either the Naval Air Station “Valkenburg” (search and rescue), or the aircraft carrier “Karel Doorman” for plane guard duties during launch and recovery operations. It has to be mentioned that they did save a large number of persons and pilots from drowning in all types of weather conditions. Being single engined and slightly under powered, they were unr
  9. Dear Wessex Specialists, My last question was in regards to the yellow rotor blade on the SAR Wessex. In reading the total result of my question (3 pages), I have come to the conclusion that BM is the best site for starting a serious discussion. I was amazed at the knowledge among the members. Thanks for the effort you all put in there. This knowledge I will use, if questioned by modelers who think they know it all! This time, I continue with the colors of the airframes in general. In particular the RED on the RN frames and the YELLOW on the RAF frames. To start with the rescue yellow, doe
