  1. I have the markings from Anyz, they are incredible! I was thinking of getting the dials and switches. I was thinking of just sticking with the kit seat, none of the aftermarket ones seem to add much from pictures I’ve seen. Ah shame! Hopefully they come along soon. Tamiya give the fittings for the belts and I still have plenty of scrap fabric left from other sets, I might try to make my own.
  2. I will order those, thanks for the advice! Another few quick questions, if you’ll indulge me please; Is the Aires Exhaust nozzle a lot better than the kit one? Are there any fabric seatbelts available for this kit? Are there any aftermarket kits considered ‘essential’ for this kit, like cockpit or ejection seat? I have the Eduard interior and exterior PE sets, and the master static discharges and pitot sets. I’m just wondering if anyone recommended any other sets? thank you
  3. Hello and sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I recently got the Tamiya F-16 to try a modern jet for a bit of a change. As usual the decals are terribly thick and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good set for the weapons in particular? I got some decals for the plane itself. If anyone has any recommendations on aftermarket for this kit as well, I’d be all ears Ideally I’d like to locate some decals in the UK due to the shipping problems with the worlds current situation. Thank you!
  4. I used it on mine, and you do still need to do the surgery sadly. The only thing to watch out for really is to make sure you sand the base of the engine down nice and flat, and just keep dry fitting. It’s a lovely engine, and with some spark plug wires looks great, just a shame you don’t see much of it once it’s in the cowling!
  5. Thank you! Good luck to you too! it is a fairly baffling kit when you first look at it. So much detail! Now I look at it and wonder how much more detail I can add
  6. I have this kit and a few lovely upgrades for it (yahu make a photo etch panel for it now). just working out how to have panels be removable so all that lovely internal detail can still be seen. I also want to do a more Luft ‘46 style build and have it set up as if it was in an operational unit. Might need to do some scratch building for things like the radio sets etc. I have to get my He 219 and Mosquito done first though!
  7. Stunning work Brett!! Absolutely love it I really must get one of these kits.
  8. Sometimes life gets In the way of model building! Hope I can see some more of your Corsair soon! I was a bit wary of doing it, but it came out as you said. Just metal looking. I wanted a bit worn and used.
  9. Sorry for the long delay! I finally got some paint on the Mustang after a few false starts. I’ve never done a NMF finish before. It didn’t come out as metallic as I would have liked, but it’s not a bad try I gloss blacked it with Mr Color gloss black and used MRP super silver on the wings and MRP white aluminium on the fuselage. hopefully I can do a better job on the Thunderbolt I have on the go.
  10. I would love a decent injection moulded C47. It is such an iconic plane and it would be great to have one in 1/32 packed with paratroopers!
  11. That is one beautiful cockpit Brett! Fantastic work!!
  12. Interesting idea. I normally just get a set of vinyl masks for canopies. Those cotton buds look useful though, thanks Those silver decals would definitely be useful! Thank you very much The black bands are tubing for fly fishing. I’ll take a picture of the package when I get home. The white wire is also for fly fishing.
  13. Thanks for the tip! I’ll give it a go with the foil on my practice kit. I did read an article with the technique you mentioned and the result looked great. For the mustang though I think I’m going to go for mrp metallics.
  14. Glad to help I was thinking of trying bare metal foil on my thunderbolt. How did you find using it?
