    ICM 2019 Catalogue

    I've only ever built their 1/48 P-51D kit. It is basically a Tamiya rip-off. So a great little build. Not tried their LSP though sorry.

    Some disheartening news from Revell

    But back to Revell if i may. I hope they do continue bringing out models (particularly LSP ones). I am on a minimum wage job and they are the top end of my price range and build skills. I find they look great when built OOB. Don't get me wrong i like to add a little AM (seatbelts and pre-print instruments occasionally) but because of my limited skills i think they are just nice for me

    Some disheartening news from Revell

    It's not that much of a disaster. I'd love to be able to afford one and have it on much shelf (built naturally). But i'm not a self-confessed rivet counter. Power to those that are but i am not skilled enough to be one.

    Some disheartening news from Revell

    Is Revell pricing themselves out of the market? Their kits are great value (although some on here think they aren't worthy of making - obviously below them). It will be a sad day if they do stop.

    Did he give any reasons for this supposed direction change? If they do then they will have cut off their nose to spite their face imho

    Your favourite paints?

    I haven't tried their Allies colours yet but their RLM colours imho are fantastic. Now if i can get them to spray properly then with your suggestion then i feel it will be my 'go to' paint. Although Tamiya is still amazing for spraying.

    Your favourite paints?

    Never tried distilled water. I have some Xtracrilix thinner but i find it hit and miss. I might have to give it a go again to see if it was just me (more than likely)

    Revell 2019, 1st Quarter(+)

    I'm saving my hard earned pennies as we speak to buy one. And then the Me262. Might even sell one of my Hasegawa Fw190 A8 kits to fund them

    You're treading on thin ice here. It's reheat every time. You are reheating the exhaust gases by dumping more fuel into it and igniting it. British aircraft. British language. British at it's best Sorry cross trained ex-rigger/propulsion technician here

    I must have missed this one. Is Italeri bringing out a new tool Tonka?

    Farewell to the Tornado soon.

    The Eurofighter EF2000 'Typhoon' is the replacement primarily for the Tornado F3 air defence but can and is utilised for the GR version too. The F35 is going to be the standard replacement for the Harrier GR9 and Tornado GR4

    Mr. Paint (MRP?)

    I have used the Mr. Metalcolor paints (aluminium and stainless) and for me they are fantastic paints. Can be buffed when dry to a great shine.

    Farewell to the Tornado soon.

    The Norfolk land shark will be sorely missed in the area i feel. I only went to Marham to do my Tonka Q courses (bay and line).

    And CSAS still is king of the low level flying (even if it was a to set up at times)

    Farewell to the Tornado soon.

    Sad day indeed Loved working on the GR1 and GR4. Although zone 19 (riggers spaghetti junction) was a to work in at times. Will be missed

    Airfix 1/48 Hunter released

    I might have to grab me one of these. My father was in the RAF on national service (unfortunately an armourer and not as god's chosen trade of Rigger) with 26 Sqn and i would love to build one for him.
