  1. Thank you both That is a great help. Scooby, I am used to our Police Dauphins. This one sounded & looked different. I was impressed. I wish I had gotten some photos. I was going to when he took off, but he shot off in the other direction obscured by trees. Again thank you both Ash
  2. Hello All Does anyone make a Augusta Westland AW-139? I have seen the Victorian Air Ambulance version (Australia) I would like to have a go at one, if one exists? Not fussed on scale, at the moment, just seeing if its available in a kit. Thanks Ash

    Soft edges

    Yes, I dont own one, & dont have any attention of getting one in the near future. Thanks Ash
  6. Hello All I am wondering whether anyone can guide me on how to create soft edges between different color paints? Similar to an airbrush? I have few models I would like to try this effect on. For example the Euro 1 scheme on an A-10. Thanks Ash
  7. Thank you, Have picked up a set I think will be close enough. Ash
  8. Hello All Does anyone make aftermarket or generic decals for a 1:35 or 1:32 Scale Apache? I have the academy (Kangam) Apache. I dont like the grey scheme, I am happy with just the plain drab green. I am not sure the kit decals will work for the darker drab green. Thanks Ash
  9. Ken No problems, glad to be of assistance. Thanks Ash
  10. There is a lot of options? maybe...Mind you I have never rented anywhere that has issue with me modelling. I know our local hobby store, does a meet & make on weekends. Maybe somewhere near by does the same? Depending on where you are renting is there an issue with you placing a small shed up? Maybe see if there is like minded person if they would mind sharing there space. Would building snap together models work whilst you are there? What about your workplace? Would they be willing to let you have a small space? Even letting people here know what area you are going too, there might be som

    Hello all Does anyone units used the F-14 Bombcat. I am not a fan the unit that is used in the Bombcat kit. Thanks Ashleigh
  13. Hello Straight Ammonia works for chrome part, not sure on paint. I wouldnt think so. Thanks Ashleigh
  14. Thanks everyone for the guidance, I am going to try the lacquer paints. I have been using them for solid colors, might as well take the plunge & try camouflage. Thanks Ash.
  15. Hello All I am wondering if anyone can guide me on the paints for A-10 Euro 1 scheme without mixing colors? I have access to Tamiya or Humbrol, plus whatever is in my stash. Thank you Ash
  16. Hello I am by no means an expert in this field, but I have a few versions of the "My Achin A**" I don't believe there is other artwork on it, other than the lady on the fuselage, the A** on the nose, & the other lady on the landing gear cover. However the Landing gear cover maybe dependent on the pilot? Not sure if this helps? Thanks Ash
  17. I would go with option 2, maybe test matte coat, if you are not happy, maybe then strip & start over. As to what caused it, could it be the although humidity is regulated, that the temperature changed. I know that plays havoc with my models. As I am out in a shed with no temperature. But I am no expert. Thanks Ashleigh
  18. I have three For some reason Metallica's Outlaw torn gives me Goosebumps & a little sad, not sure why another one is called "under the Milky Way" by the church The last one is Sister golden hair by America, it just reminds me of an aunt that has now left us With two other possibilities, being... …Bare by Anthrax, & Angel flying to close to the ground by Willie nelson This is great question Thanks Ash
  19. Yep, the old AMT speeder biker. Thanks for the guidance. Yes I was a little concerned around the hip area as well, it does seem very chunky. As he is spare, I don't mind trying something new. Thanks for the help Ash
  20. Thanks Bill Its the Star Wars biker scout, It's down as 1:11 scale. It is made of plastic styrene (I think?) They are one piece, except for the arms, they are separate. Thanks Ash
  21. Hello All I want know if there is a guide to changing a sitting posed figure to a standing one? Thanks Ash
  22. Thank you Luca I have the DF-helostuff decals, which has lead to my confusion. The photos I have seen, show no anti-glare nose & a white roof (I think?) The DF-helostuff instruction's show these. But you are right & maybe I can speak to David & see if he can guide me. Thanks Ash
  23. Hello All I am trying to build the Revell 1/32 Bundeswehr Luftwaffe UH-1D (SAR) 70+54 25th anniversary Alhorn 1984 bird. It has black/red & yellow stripes. It was a Revell kit (4440) I am wondering if anyone has a walkaround, particularly of the underneath? I have some photo's but some seem to create confusion not help it. Thanks Ash
  24. Hello I have this kit too, I would love to have a go it one day, but I don't like painting white, however I am gaining confidence using Tamiya lacquer paints. I do like the coast guard helicopters. If you get a chance have a look at movie called "the Guardian" it has Kevin Costner & Ashton Kutcher in it (Don't let that put you off!!!) It's has some footage of these types of choppers, some inside. I look forward to seeing this built. Ash
  25. Hello Minicraft have re-released it in 2017. If that helps? Thanks Ash
