  1. I'd wait until they bring out the F-86F Sabre later this year...
  2. Thanks for the input all. I have also found this PDF on How to Make Your Own Decals by Richard Marmo if this can help anyone else.
  3. Thanks, it is for a 1/12 Atomic City Mercury capsule I'm looking at super detailing. Not exactly LSP. The instrument dials' background are mostly black, with indicators etc in white. So the dials will be painted white with black transparent decals.
  4. I'm looking at printing some decals for instrument dials and stencils in 1/12. Any experience on doing this or recommendations?
  5. Arnott's Ginger Nut biscuits (different in various states in Oz..), or for those less endowed in the Tooth department, Denture Snaps
  6. I see HPH have a Wright R-2600 in 1/32...
  7. I will be picking one up once the price settles. Are there AM nacelles and engines?
  8. This build on 1/72 Tornado used thin wire... https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=159&t=1362582&i=320 Sounds difficult, but looks very straightforward and realistic, probably more so at 1/32. I would give this a go as a test, before polishing back the molded det.
  9. I ordered my 0.75mm (1/48 and 1/32) single wheel riveter from UMM-USA, as BNA were out of stock here in Oz. http://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/product_info.php?products_id=1024 I think it was the last one in UMM, as now out of stock. I also got the 1mm single wheel (1/32) to account in variations in 1/32 rivets. https://umm-usa.com/onlinestore/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=rosie&x=0&y=0
  10. I find annealing copper wire makes it quit maleable, but not quite as soft as lead.
  11. It's the best there is!
  12. Any release date for this kit? There is no mention of it at all on their website or their Facebook? In fact, there hasn't been much from them at all in the last 6 months. Did Mdm Lam lock them up?
  13. Probably around $500,000. This is way OT, but I know the feeling. Back in the early 80's I longed for a Ferrari Dino 246 GT. Then I saw two in a used car yard in Melbourne each going for AU$36,000. Today, if you can find one, you'd be looking at around AU$600,000, give or take 100g. And no, I didn't pick one up
  14. I have been looking for a set of the Fisher Meteor Rocket Set for the HK Meteor F.4 for conversion to F.8. https://fishermodels.indiemade.com/product/meteor-rocket-set-132?tid=4 Looks like that's a lost cause. So, as an alternative, now looking at the MDC 3inch HE HVAR sets. https://www.modeldesignconstruction.co.uk/search?controller=search&s=rockets There are two sets of HE rockets, the only difference I can see are the rails and the earlier set has the electrical connection cables. So, I assume the earlier set with the connections would be better. Now the stubs for the Meteor. MDC have a set of stubs for the Mosquito, which look like they may be OK? https://www.modeldesignconstruction.co.uk/32nd-scale/72-rocket-mounting-stubs.html Or I could scratch build those if necessary, but there is a lack of detailed photos or plans for the stubs and rails on the RAF and RAAF Meteor F.8. What do you think? I know Eric Galliers built these from scratch and used the MDC rockets on his wonderful F.8. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234989893-132-meteor-f8-raaf-hk-modelsfisher-model-and-pattern/
