Bah, yes. Also the Feifel (?) tubes on the rear deck. Looks like an eBay job tbh as an aftermarket buyfest will likely miss something and end up just as costly. Curses. Lesson to be learned for me here in not making spontaneous model purchases next time... Thankyou! Also, thankyou for the links.
ABeck replied to Homebee's topic in The RumourmongerQ: Which alterations apart from the bigger radiators will have to be undertaken on the Eduard VIIIc wing to make a high back XIVc ? Reagards Andreas Beck
Christer A replied to Christer A's topic in Work in Progress - AircraftThanks John. The evening sun yesterday showed the flaws a lot more clearly than what I managed to photograph...
Tomas Enerdal replied to Homebee's topic in The RumourmongerAgreed, Falcon has always been considered as top class, both in vacform model execution and with reference to accuracy. But recent info about the "strengthened E-wing" (pics), as fitted to the Mk.18, has not been well described in earlier (modelling) references. Whithout having seen the Falcon vac, I wonder if these aspects were known to Falcon then? See; sptfire xviii wing again Waliant wings has released Spitfire part 1 (Merlin-powered), no.12 in their Airframe and Miniature series. Part 2 is in preparation, scheduled to be released in 2019. I wonder what they may bring? When (not if) I'll do a highback, i expect that sections from the Airfix XIX fuselage can be grafted to the lowback XIV. Future will tell.
Biggles87 replied to Christer A's topic in Work in Progress - AircraftLooking good to me too. I can't see any seams except the one behind the gun port panel. It's possible that there might have been a faint trace of longitudinal seams on the fuselage anyway as it was built in two halves and joined together, just like the kit John
@Kitchen Modeller thanks John! First coat is down, I'm using xf-54 dark sea grey thinned roughly 50-50 here. For a very weathered look this looks pretty nice but I'm going to keep going, probably a bit thinner on the next coat and see where we are. Cheers, Sam
hello Dears !! Yesterday, it was a great modelling evening for me !! I did'nt do a lot but my 15 years old so Nicolas resume modelling ! He abandoned his kits when he was 8 years old and I saved all his stuff... Hoping for this day to arrive !! This one has suffered a lot... He did this 1/48 F4U-7 but it's too much work to repair it Too many missing parts So he received a brand new kit as a welcome gift !! Have a great modelling time !! Sincerely. CC
I can sympathise with the OP about the prices in the world of automobile modelling, coming from aircraft modelling myself it has been a shock. I can only assume that sales volumes of kits and accessories for cars are considerably lower than model aircraft, also wanting what's current makes a subject hot sales wise for a much shorter time limiting profitability. A bit like the real thing value plummets as a model goes out of currency only to increase when it becomes a classic! on the other hand I'm taking much longer to complete a model to my satisfaction so it's value ratio of cost to time is much better than aircraft, it's ratio of frustration to cost is bigger too as I master new techniques! Good luck with your quest for suitable subjects, it's a whole new world out there.
If you look around, take your time, and spend some time on eBay, you can build up a pretty good selection without paying huge prices, especially if you’re prepared to do a bit of work to detail some “classic” kits. Look for Heller, Union/Wave, IMC Monogram and Protar kits as well as Hasegawa and Fujimi. You can get a pretty broad selection of 60s/70s sports prototypes and Le Mans contenders, and Hasegawa/Tamiya do a fair range of 80s/90s cars, admittedly Japan biased. Accurate Miniatures did a Corvette Grand Sport and McLaren M8, and Simil’R a (previous generation) Ford GT. I’ll have a rummage through the stash and post up a list of what I’ve tracked down so far... best, M.
Thank you. The Owl reference for the FuG 202 is aftermarket resin and photo etch. No kit, but judging by the finesse of the photo etch, it would be a fine kit were they to make one. Cheers, Matt

Not sure if related to the server move Mike but just reporting that can only 'like' a post (no menu of other options available) and unable to highlight and quote a portion of a member's post on a Samsung tablet this morning. I'll slip another donation in when the wages arrive next week...
I always took the sparrows nickname to have evolved in regards to prey or even from the biblical reference. Mind you, I can't tell brown from green so perhaps I was missing the obvious. I'd been doing a bit of reading over the last few days, and most of the various internet savants seemed to agree that early war PC10 was more green and the latter stuff was more chocolate. Due to that I was trustingly mixing more XF-62 Olive Drab into the cup than the brown. Hopefully I arrived at a plausible colour for A857.
