  1. Has anyone got the instructions for the BR32386 Douglas A-4K Kahu Conversion set. They are not showing up on the website?
  2. I find the best way to dilute AK paints takes 3 steps: 1. pick up all the AK paints you have; 2. Take them to the rubbish bin: 3. Throw them all in. That way they will never make a mess of any model you build and after a while in the rubbish dump, they will be diluted enough to not ever give a damn about again.
  3. Thanks very much for the advice folks. It sounds like we are all having the same issues and it will boil down to what we think looks good. I'll let you know what I come up with.
  4. Thanks John, we are thinking along the same lines.
  5. Hi Guys and Gals and others, what paints are people (are we people in this new woke world) using for Olive Drab on their Vietnam Cobras please? Cheers, Peter
  6. Hi guys, count me in please? My donation is a 1/32 Revell SuperCub. #04208. Merry Christmas everyone.
  7. Hi Ray, yeah go for it. Thanks for the info re the clear fuselage parts. Not too much of an issue though. cheers, Peter
  8. After watching the new "Midway" movie last year I decided to build USN Lt Richard Best's SBD-3, that he flew twice from USS Enterprise, on 4th June 1942 to sink the IJN carriers Kaga and Hiryu. Its a really nice kit, but I didn't particularly like the clear fuselage. Nothing wrong with it but just hard to see if seams are covered until undercoat applied. Painted with a combination of SMS, MRP and Mr Hobby acrylic laquers and then weathered with oils and hard pastells. Yahu instrument panel, EZE line antenna, MasterCasters wheels and Master gun barrels. Some light fading on the upper surfaces, but these aircraft were new when they boarded Enterprise immediately before the Battle of Midway so not too much to do. My model depicts what the aircraft may have looked like after returning from the first attack and ready for the second sortie. The rear guns would have been stowed but I wanted to be able to see them. Enjoy.
