  1. Hi, Im currently building the HobbyBoss 1/32 P-61B (With Corrections!) but am stuck! I can’t find any info on the colours of the following areas and I’m reading to load up the airbrush!! Cockpit Rear Radar Operators Station Underside Gun Bay U/C Bays Cowl Inner Faces U/C Legs Im going to do it as a 422nd NFS bird, now I know they were Black, and sources suggest High Gloss Black, is that right or is it actually Satin/Semi Matt?? Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. Hi, ive been asked to build an F-4C Phantom in the early USAF Air Defense Grey Scheme in Vietnam, but I’m damned if I can find any decals for such?? Any help or links to some please? Many thanks in advance.
  3. Hi, Can you knowledgable chaps tell me which Russian Jets we have in 1/32 scale please? Which are the best kits of each type, problems and tips with each kit, what’s needed, etc for each please? I ask because I’m trying to put together a list for other modellers to refer to for this subject matter.  Thanks in advance
  4. Hi Chaps, Im struggling to find info on the MiG-29K within the Russian Navy. Last night I was searching to find out exactly what colours I’d need for the scheme that I have attached a picture of. I spent all night searching but couldn’t find out what the paint colours are so I could cross them over to MRP Paints (My favourite brand to use!!). Any Help Please? https://www.google.com/search?q=mig-29k+navy+colour&client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&prmd=isnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiDoJLEq9HgAhXyURUIHRzYDsYQ_AUoAXoECAwQAQ&biw=1024&bih=666#imgrc=LI_hZDMFZBCb_M
  5. Hi, Something I’ve long considered, are there any Natural Metal F-4 Phantom schemes out there? Thanks
  6. Hi, I wonder can you knowledgeable chaps point me in the right direction? Im trying to find a dedicated decal stencil sheet for all the stencils on Vietnam Era and Euro 1 Camo Phantoms, but can’t seem to find one! I dont need markings kings as I have plenty of those, just the stencils in White, Black, and any other colours they used. Im also trying to find some generic 1/32 etched Ejection Seat Pull Handles too, but again, can’t find any?? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, Ive got a P-51D on the bench that flew with the 359th FG from East Wretham with the USAAF 8th AF. Problem is, I cannot find any reference as to which colour the Green was on the noses of these aircraft from this particular fighter group? Can anyone help in here please by way of a name for the shade of Green used or a colour match? Many Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi, Apart from the Packard Merlin being license built by Packard during the war, what’s the difference between the Rolls Royce and Packard engines please? Was wondering if I could buy a 1/32 Eduard Brassin Merlin engine and (If needs be) modify it to go into one of my 1/32 Tamiya P-51D’s to really spruce up the detail? Cheers.
  9. I have a number of Revell Spit Mk 1 and Mk 9’s in the stash, but I also have a spare Eduard Brassin Merlin engine set for the Tamiya Mosquito FB IV that I didn’t end up using. Now, I wonder if the Eduard Engine Set could be used on either of the Revell Spitfires to show the power egg opened up? Thoughts? Comments? Help??
  10. I’m having a problem with the AK Xtreme Metal Paints. I’m having the same problems with all the shades of metal, no matter what primer (Tamiya, Mr Surfacer, etc) I use with it, the problem is the masking it. ive left it to dry from 30 minutes to a full 24 hours but every time I mask it (I only use Tamiya Masking Tape) the tape lifts the Metal colour away. Its now making me so angry that I just want to ditch all the bottles I have!! Can someone please help me and give me some help, advice, etc please? I really don’t want to go back to using Alclad at all. Thanks
  11. Can you point me in the direction of to where it’s documented about the civilian car paint please?
  12. After doing a lot of research on a/c from the 361st FG, I have finally found confirmation whether it was Olive Drab, RAF Dark Green or even Medium Blue that was used for the topside camouflage colours. What the paint Code is, or the exact shade of ‘Medium Blue’ was, I am still working on! Please see the attached pictures. Look at the text behind the rudder of the middle P-51D
  13. Hi, Ive got 10 or so of the new Revell P-51D-5 Mustangs to build in various schemes, but, like most I suppose, I’m not happy with the kits cockpit. Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket resin cockpit set for this kit or if another resin cockpit will fit this kit? Many Thanks
  14. Hi, Can someone point me in the right direction of where to buy some ready made display bases that are suitable for our 1/32nd scale aircraft please? The type of bases that I am after are the following; PSP/Marsden Matting Type Dry/Airfield Grass Type Earth Type Concrete Airfield Type Ideally the size would be good for a P-51 or P-47 really. ive spent countless hours searching the web for these but not come up with anything except a company called Just Plane Stuff but it seems like they are no longer in business? I really don’t mind having to buy from abroad either. I don’t mind having to spray something but my skill set isn’t at the level where I could build something from scratch. I don’t want the ‘Printed on Card’ type of base as I personally don’t find that they are realistic. If you have any web links to anything or know of anywhere then I’d be very grateful. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi, I have two P-51D’s on the bench at the moment but I’m desperate to do them in specific schemes. Ive tried everywhere to find some decals for these but to no avail. I actually only need the nose art really as I have all the universal masks to use for the other bits. The schemes I want to do are; Detroit Miss (yellow nose - 361st FG) & Down For Double (355th FG). Any Help or advise please? Happy to pay for these and no problem with global postage. Thanks
