  1. I’d agree wholeheartedly with you on that whole statement. I wont lie, when I saw the issues in Gaz’s build and then yours I was tempted to put my kit up for sale as I’m in a rut with the hobby at the moment and really don’t need complicated builds or builds that fight back.
  2. Thanks Mike. Just looked like the shape wouldn’t allow that to happen from other builds I’ve looked at.
  3. Do those Gunze metal paints spray directly from the bottle or do they require thinning? I do like their finish.
  4. Good to know all is not lost then. This is why I let others blaze the trails and lay the ground work for me.
  5. I like that Green Mottle, it looks like they thin nicely. I’ll probably give them a go in the near future.
  6. Thanks for that Andy. I'll bear them in mind. Do they need a lot of thinning or are they good with a 50/50 or 60/40 ratio? Will use their thinners if I pick these paints up.
  7. How do the AK Paints spray? Are these the ones in the glass jar or the Acrylics in dropper bottles? Thinking of picking some up as MRP no longer ship here and more and more finding the colours I want out of stock with suppliers plus the problem of them being not brush paintable to apply small touch ups, even if letting the paint sit and dry for a bit before applying it I’d find a different tone when dry so thinking of swapping to something that is easy to get hold of and brush paintable for those small fixes.
  8. With the Revell kit, can the exhausts and shrouds if required be fitted after painting or do they have to be fitted as per the instructions?
  9. Well I am far from an expert on these things, but the shot up example has the Voltage Regulator moved up to behind the Pilots head, Windscreen armour, Shield over the petrol tank and a reflector gun sight and the wedge shaped aerial post rather than the straight pole of the earlier models so I’d safely say that its not a Mk.I Early. Given the time frame of being left behind in France I’d say you were ok with a ‘mid’ which the Kotare kit will be. I did see something a while back on their website regarding which serial numbers fit their definition of mid production so if yours fits in that block then you are good to go.
  10. Going for an Italian scheme with mine using Eurodecals purchased from Fantasy Printshop. The sheet offers a multitude of options from G-6 through G-10 to G-14.
  11. That’s gone there since yesterday. It was still TBA when I put my back order in.
  12. I was going to pre order a couple of them from Kotare directly but the shipping and taxes made it not so cost effective. No complaints, tax is what it is and a fact of purchasing from abroad. So I’ve put a couple on back order with Hannants instead. No price listed there yet but easy enough to cancel if they are too pricey when announced.
  13. I don’t know at what point the ‘mid’ came in to service but I have a real hankering for one of those Spitfires that had the Black/White wings but the rest of the Underside in Aluminium/Silver.
