    1/48 Kitty Hawk AS365 question.

    Thank you, I dare say it will be obvious when I get round to it now that you've mentioned it.

    1/48 Kitty Hawk AS365 question.

    Thanks for the warning Norbert, just to clarify that I remove approx 1mm off the base of the rear wall and this will make it sit square on the wheel wells?
  3. Thank youđź‘Ť
  4. Hi all, wondering if any one knows the correct colours for the intakes, wheelbays and airbrake wells and doors on the F5A. Looking to model one in either SEA or Asia Minor scheme. TIA Scott

    1/48 Kitty Hawk AS365 question.

    Thanks for the reply Froggy. Figured it wouldn’t be a straight forward build looking at the instructions, as you say one slight mistake early on may render it unbuildable later on. May leave it for now until I get the modelling mojo back in full swing, the last kit I started didn’t do me any favours so need a simpler kit to restore my mentality 🤪
  6. Hi all, looking to start building the KH AS365 soon and was wondering if there is anything to look out for or I should be aware of regarding the build. TIA Scott

    Too much flat coat?

    Maybe the flat coat hasn’t been mixed properly in the jar/bottle or maybe over thinned? General rule for most spraying is a couple of light coats followed by a heavier wet coat should see you fine. A heavy coat to start with normally results in a chalky White appearance
  8. It’s Denmark that flew the CL600 not Norway.

    Academy MH 60 S Helicopter 1/35 scale/

    I actually prefer the Yellow, I find that it makes your eyes wander around the cabin more.

    Revell 1/48 Tornado GR.4

    If you’re referring to the strikes in April 2018, it was 31 Sqn. The 8 Tornado’s were pooled from both sqns at the time with the other being 9 Sqn, none of the a/c wore any Sqd markings which had been the case for sometime across the whole Tornado fleet. 4 Tornado’s were used on the strike which each a/c carrying a pair of Storm Shadows under the fuselage, ASRAAM’s on the inner shoulder pylons, a pair of 2250 ltr “Hindenburg” tanks, TERMA pod on the outer port pylon and BOZ pod on the outer starboard pylon. The a/c that took part in the strike were ZA601/066 ZA556/047 ZD716/084 ZA585/054 Hope that helps.

    Italeri 1/48 AB-212 ASW

    Looks like we may have been waiting for nothing, as it is no longer mentioned in the 2019 catalogue.
