  1. I must admit I have dipped down into 1/48 for multi engined aircraft that would be just too big for my display cabinets and I did once build a 1/48 Westland Whirlwind because there was not a 1/32 scale version. But I failed miserably with a 1/72 scale B-24, it was much too small for my sausage fingers. Cheers Dennis
  2. Looking just like a Spitfire/Seafire, carry on but take care of your health. Cheers Dennis
  3. Looking good, I must get around to building mine Cheers Dennis
  4. Useful info as I have one in my stash, thanks to all for asking the question and answering it ! Cheers Dennis
  5. Great progress, and that's from a very glacial builder, I tend to take longer opening the box than most people take to do a build. Keep up the good work Cheers Dennis
  6. Wow what great marking options you have there, I would have killed for them years ago when I built a resin Yak 3. Cheers Dennis
  7. I'm not into Luftwaffe subjects but you are doing a fine job on this one, I have never heard about prop weights so I have also learned something new as well. Cheers Dennis
  8. What a great project, well beyond me but it will be great to watch. Cheers Dennis
  9. Whoops, that's why I'm not partial to decals, apart from that it's looking splendid. Cheers Dennis
  10. Absolutely beautiful job Max, how did you manage to fill and paint the holes where the rigging went through the wings with the paintwork already completed, or did I miss that bit, I certainly cannot see any blemishes. Cheers Dennis
  11. I have never seen the Testors brown but in Nick Millman's guide to Raiden colours he says that he would be looking for something like FS30108 which the Ultimate Model Paint Conversion Chart says is equivalent to Testors 1540 Brown, Humbrol 160, Xtracolor 807, with the proviso that it should be a definate brown colour. The snag was that the Humbrol 160 was matt so I had to polish it with a nail buffer the Colourcoats should be better as it is satin. Cheers Dennis
  12. I really love Italian subjects but I have yet to complete a biplane, but if the Gladiator goes well I would love one of these. Cheers Dennis
  13. Looking in my Japanese Naval Air Force Camouflage and markings WW2 book under propellers and spinners it states that between 1937 and 1943 the forward faces were polished metal with two red stripes at the tip. From 1943 through 1944 the only change was to go to one large red strip near the tip. Mid 1944 to 1945 the forward face was painted in a dark colour such as red brown, dark green or black, during the entire period discussed the rear faces were finished in red brown, dark green or black. This is from the book by Donald W Thorpe so may have been superseded by newer information. I'm just building a Raiden and have used Humbrol 160 German Camo Red Brown for the prop blades though I now have some Sovereign Colourcoats ACJ23 Propeller Brown. Cheers Dennis
