    Enamel Paint Cleaner

    I just use white spirit(mineral spirits) blow it through the nozzle, followed by a back flush. Once a week I submerge the whole airbrush and leave for 24 hrs.

    Enamels v Acrylics!

    Depends on what is readily available in your area. I'm an enamel man myself but I've found it increasingly harder to find a supplier in the UK that is willing to post them as standard mail which now results in sky high courier prices. This has had a knock on effect where shops no longer sell as much enamels as they once did therefore they have began the process to stop stocking them . I'm now forced to get my paints from Germany, funny thing is it now costs less in postage than what I was getting charge within the UK.

    RAL7047 Telegrey 4 alternative?

    Thanks Tobi, however I ordered up some Blues from Aerospezial so I'll see what they look like first before ordering the Revell.
  4. A massive long shot but you never know. I'm looking for 6 x 1/48 seats from the Cobra Company SH/HH-60J conversion sets. Obviously I'm not expecting them to come from a single source so if you have one or two available I'd like to hear from you. Thanks in advance Scott

    Well this managed to get in the air and stay there https://out.reddit.com/t3_33i614?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cybermodeler.com%2Faircraft%2Ff-32%2Fimages%2Fdf-sd-03-15738.jpg&token=AQAA_IefW-IYZcxReuFt4CwtC2nFB9ghRHS3j__BVuGc8RJchqwE&app_name=mweb2x

    RAL7047 Telegrey 4 alternative?

    Hi Tobi, I saw the Xtracolor RAL7035 and thought it looked quite close, looks like that'll be the route to go although FS16515 lightened may be good as well. Now I need to find a match for RAL 5012, the Revell offering looks too bright? Need to get back to building more run of the mill aircraft

    Greek A-7E (and not A-7H)

    If it’s set 2054, it’s the SJU-8 seat in it.

    1/48 Trumpeter AS365 Dauphin, which boxing?

    I'll be building a Hellenic Coast Guard AS365N3, although not configured as a pure SAR helo like the USCG HH-65, I think the French version may be closer?

    Thanks for the warning Norbet, much appreciated. Don't suppose you have any links to or photos showing the interior of a rescue configured AS365?

    Greek A-7E (and not A-7H)

    Paint the hubs Black instead of White and you're sorted, no one will be able to tell unless you tell them(damn it I've just told them) or if accuracy is paramount AMS did both the D and E wheels https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMS-Resin-1-32-Vought-A-7D-Corsair-II-Wheels-Set-/272763928554

    Greek A-7E (and not A-7H)

    The catbar on the nose gear was removed. The main wheels(not the whole undercarriage) were from A-7D's. The seats were the later STENCEL SJU-8's.

    Yip, that was my conclusion as well so ordered one at the weekend. Just need pictures of the cabin area now.
