About 1:72 WW2 Air Only

  1. I've used a Tamiya thin brush on glue but what I did was chop up some old sprues and put them in the bottle. The sprues dissolved in the glue and I now have liquid plastic to apply to those gaps!
  2. Great video, I tend to just use Tamiya panelines to get mine done in 1:72. I need to get a scriber though for those models that do not have clearly defined panel lines.
  3. Hi 11bee, I've found a recent advantage to using a clear sealing over my decals: I airbrush Tamiya X-22 acrylic clear coat before applying decals, after decals are applied I just airbrush X-22 over them. I then apply Tamiya panelines which is a thined down enamel paint over panel lines. Because of the process I've used I can also paint panel lines over the decals which creates a really cool effect. When I rub off excess paneline paint off with an enamel thiner neither the paint or the decals are attacked as the enamel thiner doesn't work on acrylic.

    Hi I was wondering if anyone out there has spare parts for an Emily 1:72 scale, mine are broken and need replacing

  5. Hi Guys, Thank you so much for your help, I appreciate it.
  6. I recently got an old Frog kit from eBay & the protection (top) sheet is sticking to the decal and leaving paper on the decals. Is there a way to fix this? Best regards, Dan
  7. Hi, I recently moved countries and have lost the instruction sheet, gun turret canopy and decals for an Italeri 1:72 Hudson. Can anyone help?
  8. Hi, Does anyone have a cockpit for a 1/72 LAGG-3 Russian fighter. The make is Emhar. I've lost mine Cheers, Dan
  9. Hi, Can anyone help me? I've lost my instruction assembly sheet for my Blohm & Voss 138 flying boat (Revell) while moving. I also don't have the decals. If someone out there has a spare copy they could send me I'd be grateful. I don't want to waste such a good model. Thanks, Daniel
  10. Thanks everyone, very helpful. The Revell box retails from around £5. Its just been a fiddly pet peeve of mine to have to always build a figure for my planes.
  11. Hi, I tend to cut solidiers and try and turn them into pilots as many kits these days come without pilots. The plastic for figures is different to the plastic for planes. Could anyone suggest a place where you can buy pilots pre-made? Also is super-glue the best way to bond the two types of plastic? Regards
