  1. I can confirm that Mission Models Insignia Red does not match the furball red. I am still searching for a match myself.
  2. Arrived today, slowest order yet hannants, but still reasonable all things considered.
  3. Ordered on May 21st, all items in stock, shipped June 1st, left UK June 5th.....I’ll let you know if I see it.
  4. They are slow to ship, poor communicators, but the order always arrives eventually.
  5. I have been using Tamiya Easy Sand CA. It isn’t cheap but I am really liking it. It really does sand easier too.
  6. Yeah that is what I meant when I said just don’t use it on styrene.
  7. The GR.1/3 is listed as pre-order at Hannants, kit number 48072. If that means anything.
  8. With extra time on my hands I have been looking on eBay to help me figure out current market prices. I am thinking of selling a few things, likely on modelling sites and not the ‘bay’. I have sold things there over a decade ago, but the shipping is now beyond stupid. What is different? I guy in Australia is selling a bottle of paint for close to the same reasonable price as an Asian supplier. But the Australian guy wants $55 for shipping and the Asian place it is free. Many photo-etch frets are saying $75 for shipping. I can mail P.E. for around $5. Is the shipping quote determined by a faulty algorithm? Or just clueless sellers or guys trying to gouge on shipping?
  9. The 1:48 Hasegawa Super Hornet family has a raised panel around the slime light on the vertical stabilizer. Is this accurate? The rest are flush with fuselage. There are not really any great reference books available for the Super Hornets at the moment. The detail and scale book isn’t worth the paper it is written on (2020 revised edition is much better than D&S #69) and the Reid Publication book isn’t currently listed for sale. I have looked at some online photos and am leaning towards it being flush and dreading sanding it off. Help from the deck handlers and other expects would be greatly appreciated. Ron
  10. aviaeology is mostly RCAF, they just look like RAF & RAAF markings. But if you read the instructions super close you will notice that the squadron numbers are mostly 400-449. Not like the copy cat Aussies with their 450-467, or the Brits with numbers from 1-300 or over 500. 😃
  11. I think it was a Maxsmodels video I was watching, where it was explained that the biggest problem for accurate miniatures was the upper management from monogram and Revell that started AM were paying themselves big corporate salaries like they were accustomed to, rather than the more typical scrape by by pay yourself nothing business start up that the company needed. Not sure of the truth of that it was just what the video pointed out.
  12. Do do you like the length of bristles on the testers glue or the length of the handle so you dip down to the end of the bottle? Because the Tamiya brush shaft length is adjustable. If you want it longer just give it a gentle tug with some needle nose pliers. I learned of this two weeks ago, saw a video on it.
  13. Can any of the 1:48 Great Wall Hobby T-33 kits be built as an RCAF aircraft straight from the box? If not which one is closest and what needs to be done with it?
