  1. I'll let you know when I get to that stage, but it looks OK at the moment. Guess I'll find out when I get the fuselage together !
  2. Funny you should say that, Curt. I'm building the 1/48 Bf 109F 4 at the moment, and I too had a short shot horizontal stabiliser . Luckily I managed to fill it with some Perfect Plastic Putty ( Wonderful stuff ! ) Haven't looked at the windscreen yet, so hopefully that will be OK.
  3. Oh wow ! Thay's a lovely model of my favourite airplane. 😍
  4. That Belcher bits set looks just the part for your model, Spruemeister, and it's probably a lot cheaper than the Daco set ( Although that is very comprehensive ). 😀
  5. VERY nice indeed ! I must say that the Tamiya Mossie is a joy to build, with no filler required, and fits like a dream. If only all models were like that ! 😀
  6. VERY nice indeed ! The Tamiya Mosquito is a pleasure to build, and yours looks excellent, Phantom.
  7. Love it ! Brings back happy memories of going to see the film " back in the day "😀
  8. Here's my latest build . . . the Revell 1/32 FW-190A - 8. Built oob except : Eduard instrument panel and seat harness. I used Eaglecals decals, plus the kit stencils, and painted with Humbrol enamels. All comments ( Good or bad ) welcome.
  9. Oh well, perhaps it was just me, but I found the Hasegawa kit much easier to build, plus the surface detail was superior to the Airfix kit, especially their "Doughnuts " to represent the cowling fasteners. I guess it's all down to personal choice at the end of the day.
  10. Thanks for the info, it's much appreciated.
  11. I had this kit when it was first released, and I agree with goondman . . . it is an unnecessarily over complicated kit to build, and unlrss you get everything EXACTLY lined up it won't fit. On top of that the landing gear fixing is just ridiculous, so you can guess where mine ended up ! I've been modelling for more years than I care to remember, but I've never had the hassle I had with this kit. Give me the older Hasegawa Hurricane any time. Rant over, I'll get me coat !
  12. Hi guys, I have the Tamiya 1/700 Scharnhorst kit to build, and would like to build it in it's " Channel Dash " colour scheme, with the aid of cross kitting the appropriate parts from the Gneisenau kit. My question is : What colour were the turret tops, as I've seen drawings showing a shade of blue, but also ones showing dark grey ? Looking at photos taken at the time they appear to be lighter than the rest of the turret, but that could just be the effect of light / shade. Any help would be gratefully received.
  13. What a superb model of my all - time favourite airplane . . . Thanks for sharing 👍
