  1. Any further updates on the progress of this bird?
  2. MRP paints are 7 bucks a bottle. I'm going to mix the colors myself with the Tamiya paints I already have.
  3. thank you. how do they airbrush compared to, say, Tamiya or Gunze? thanks
  4. Hi all, I am asking your assistance - I am building a spitfire IXc for a friend and want to paint the roundels myself. does AK real colors offer accurate renditions of these (yellow, blue, red) out of the bottle? If not them, then who? thanks in advance.
  5. Hi all, thank you for your replies: I have a related question. I want to mask the insignia and paint myself using AK real colors. Which colors from them are accurate for the roundels? I do not have their book and it is not obvious from their inventory. curious about which bottle of blue red and yellow to get. Many thanks!
  6. the windows on the kit acknowledge the sheer but it's questionable if they follow it.
  7. I think the angulation needed to be there but just may have been overdone
  8. at what timestamp does he say that?
  9. it could be because the superstructure is slightly concave-up, banana shaped, etc., (I.e., the two ends of the super structure decks sit slightly higher than the midsections of these decks and these angulations were necessary in order to ensure the windows remained vertically oriented despite the curvature. still seems extreme, and I lack the references to verify.
  10. I have my kit. Not sure if it's defective, or if the myriad of superstructure windows slanting about 30 degrees towards the bow was intentional. See below. Are these window angulations accurate? Thanks
  11. a scriber scribes a certain diameter line I am interested in cheaper alternatives to Tamiya thanks
  12. All, I am interesting in scribing all of the following diameters: 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5 mm. Tamiya offers blades in all six diameters, but the cost is quite high. What are some cheaper alternatives that you guys like to use? Thanks in advance, Christian
  13. Nice work! Will the Real Model Nose Cowling be available for sale again? thank you
  14. Why didn’t Jerry press this into production?
  15. whatever happened to this D-11 conversion?
  16. Hi all! I am building a Spitfire Mk IX for a friend and I'm not sure what colors to use (I am a Luftwaffe expert to the exclusion of basically everything else). What are the names of the colors used for the upper surfaces, underside, propeller, etc? These questions pertain to the colors depicted on the original box art of the Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk IX. Thanks in advance!
  17. You thought it was vecuronium, and then noticed the P-61?
  18. the skin was definitely stressed out of the factory. it's just that Airfix has overdone the effect by making it too uniform and ubiquitous. it's a great first step on their part and the kit seems excellent overall
