  1. Hi all im building the big tamiya f4J phantom and decided to go aftermarket with the exhaust nozzles. However think i bought the wrong set! Need sone guidance. The nozzles look correct but not sure about the other parts. Can i use parts for fan for intake and exhaust or are they a later version j79?? Set i bought is the eduard brassin Usaf late set https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153426358485
  2. Hi im used to weathering kits but ive been previously using spray cans n now made the switch to airbrushing but had some issues. Im using tamiya weathering powder and noticed that it was harder to remove the weathering mix. It also seems to have left a shadow where ive painted either side of the panel lines. Anyone had similiar issues? I waited probably a day or 2 after painting to weather.
  3. Well i had been thinking about it for a while and now ive taken the plunge and bought a Revell airbrush for about £60 based on your recommendation!
  4. Hi all looking for a little bit of help here. I dont have an air gun but have been using spray paints on my last few kits so this is now my preference to brush painting. Im looking to do a couple of phantoms one in the dark green/dark sea grey and the other in Barley grey/medium sea grey/light aircraft grey. I was wondering if i could get some recommendations for nearest matching spray paint colours. For spray paint I can get Tamiya AS/TS colours, Mr colour, revell, humbrol and model master. Any help much appreciated thanks.
  5. Hi no i dont think its just inconsistency. Ts-32 is a lot darker than the colour ive used. Im still sure it was as-28 i used before having checked through my amazon orders from last year i ordered as25/26/28 not TS32 i gave ts32 a go but it doesnt seem correct. I know there arent any other paints that match directly the FS but are there any othere that might be close to medium grey?
  6. Hi sorry this makes sense now just had me a little confused. Im still struggling with this as ive checked back at previous paint orders i made online and ive consistently ordered AS25 AS26 and AS28 as the colours. The fact that i sprayed most of the top half of my f14 and now cant get a colour match is bugging me and i was sure it was AS28 i used. I tried ts32 but it is a darker colour than the one ive previously used on the model! Does anyone else do a match in spray paints?? Im in the UK but can potentially order paints online if anyone else
  7. Hi ive checked and AS-28 is Medium grey and there is another tamiya colour that is neutral grey so what you have said doesnt make sense.
  8. Well here we go, this is my attempt at the special hobby Tempest Mk V. Painted using AML models camo mask and tamiya raf spray paints.
  9. Hi having some issues with tamiya AS paints. Im sure ive used on my last 2 tomcats AS-26 light ghost grey for undersides,AS-25 dark ghost grey for front under cockpit and tailplanes and AS-28 medium grey for topside. However ive part painted the topsides with what i was sure AS-28 and came to paint some other parts and the new cans of AS-28 are a different colour. Do these seem like the correct colours im using?? Ive also read elsewhere that TS-32 haze grey may be a good match for Medium grey.
  10. So building yet another f14, spray painted most of it sure ive used Tamiya AS28 medium grey. The paint ran out and when ive tried to spray the air brakes with a new can of AS28 its came out a different colour! Can someone please help?!! photo below shows the surrounding colour which im sure was AS28 (and the air brakes painted with new can) which im sure are same colour but totally different! https://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y139/stephen182/1A5D66B2-ADC4-4A96-8918-BFC120CCB89D.jpeg
  11. Hi just looking for a little help with what the colours are here as it is a weathered and retouched TPS scheme on 114 used as Mavericks jet in topgun. From the photo is the part highlighted in green and left hand side of yellow light or dark ghost grey?? Its a bit confusing because with the part highlighted in yellow there is a demarcation line but the colour to the right of the line isnt quite medium grey but looks maybe too dark for dark ghost grey. Lastly are the touchups highlighted in red light ghost grey or dark ghost grey too??
  12. Are there any other manufacturers that have a match in spray cans?
  13. Hi all im going to be building a 1/32 f4u-1d in fleet air arm colours. Its going to be the grey/blue like the one here im looking for a tamiya spray paint to match this. http://www.mccrow.org.uk/England/FAA%20Museum/P7040184.jpg
