  1. So 64 euro minus 47 for the kit = 17 euros postage? I am always puzzled by US customers thinking that's expensive postage. If you were to send that back to the Czech republic using US postage it would cost $35 I.e. twice the amount...

    Display Bases??

    Can I recommend you do your bases without a frame or fancy edging and to take a tip from my years of building Architectural models make it as though the land it sits on has been 'chopped' out of the ground and the edges painted black. We found this the most realistic way to present models. See my example below. Prototype Supermarine Spiteful 32nd Scale by uniquenarrowgauge, on Flickr Graham

    HKM Lancaster Dambusters conversion kit

    Thanks guys for the info, I'll put the conversion kit to bed for now and get on with casting the Attacker, BTW there was no cutting up of the kit apart from drilling 4 x 1.5mm holes for the support arms and 4 for the hydraulic motor in the bomb bay. I don't care much for the 'so called definitive' info that WNW are working with for the Dambuster from but I'll keep quiet on that. Graham

    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    Don't count on it! The HKM Lancaster had a bucket load of pleading, suggestions, rants and endless squealing about when it would be finished and now it is everyone has abandoned it for something else that has even longer to wait..... Graham

    HKM 1/32 Lancaster Kit review

    I tend to agree and let's not forget a very Matt surface is going to show even less on a model 32 times smaller. Graham

    I think on this occasion WNW not announcing they were doing the Lancaster hasn't worked, because I doubt a third manufacturer would have started to do a Lanc and in fact HKM would probably have dropped theirs had they known as they have other projects cascading around. Graham
  9. All the parts are done for this now but I have a question? Is anyone still up for this? It's going to be £47.00 plus postage, the reason I ask as time is short now for SMW 2018 and there are other more pressing projects to get finished for the show. Kind regards Graham
  10. Yes any clear car lacquer spray paint, the stuff to put over the top of metallic paints normally. Graham
