  2. Purchased, thanks Kev, another amazing ebook that will be well thumbed as per all the previous purchases. Will be a valued addition when i get around to the 2 starfighters in the everygrowing stash
  3. Another masterpiece John, congrats.
  4. 1/32 Revell JU 88 converted to a C-4 with Aims, cmk and Eduard extras
  5. My mask set arrived 2 days ago. WOW that's much quicker than i was expecting. I'm very interested in some instructions as to how to use these masks however. The foxbot masks are done so you remove the centre section and attach the outer piece to the model, spray and remove. DN masks seem to be the other way round in so much as you spray the colour for that part, then place the mask over this shade and spray the background, unless I'm reading it wrong? I have the Trumpeter kit and a few extras so ready to build once i can get my head around the masking. Help!
  6. Fantastic, I too have this Miniart tractor to build but it looks very long and hard to do. Your build has inspired, congratulations, a very very nice build.
  7. The A-8/R8 was similar to the A-8/R2, but fitted with heavy armour including 30 mm (1.2 in) canopy and windscreen armour and 5 mm (0.20 in) cockpit armour. They added the armour for head on attacks on the bomber streams.
  8. Mine was for a mk.I/II wing so maybe that's were the difference is. That filter didn't go right to the back of the wing and I believe its deeper to?
  9. Yes, there's a nice profile and pic in allied aircraft in the Ardennes.
  10. Hi I'd go with the Revell bits for this one. I'm doing a PR 1G and using Barracudas correction set and you need to insert then file away a lot to get the top wing to settle.
  11. Superb.... again. and even more spooky Revell 1/32 Junkers Ju 88C | Large Scale Planes
  12. I picked up a copy of the Morgan & Shacklady Spitfire bible and lo and behold there was an image of the handmade rack for the hurri fuel tanks! So removed the tanks and rebuilt with Evergreen and alu. Off to the paint booth...
  13. Not a whole lot to show for 2 hours work on the old pe but really pleased with the fit and appearance.
  14. All sorts to be fair. Valiant wings, the pages on here from wings of fame volume. Merlin PR spitfires for the fuel tank, and Shacklady book for a ton of info too.
  15. I had a good selection for this GB, but decided to go with this as it hadnt featured yet. As per usual with me Ive gathered up a raft of AM and PE to boot. The box is stuffed full of plastic and she's going to be a big bird. Scheme wise gotta be a winter white wash I found the review on LSP so first job was to cover up the panels and rivets on the rear of the fuselage. Hobby Boss Il-2 Sturmovik on Skis | Large Scale Planes Gunze putty then a sand and all good. And started on the pit, replacing several plastic parts with PE. Aaron
  16. Great to see this back on the bench. I'm also awaiting the updates from Aims for my second pink spit a G converted from a mk.1. Gave up chasing Alleycat for their canopies etc.
