  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

  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

    You can try with spray cans using rigid masks made of something like a manilla folder, slightly raised from the surface of the model. I remember reading about this in FSM back in the early 2000s.  Since the mask is raised ever so slightly from the surface of the model, if you are careful you can get that soft edge you are looking for. 

     

    The other way I have seen is to use artist oils, and then you can blend the demarcation line since the paint takes so long to dry. There is a video on youtube where someone demonstrated this technique. I have not tried it, but it did look intriguing.

     

    I really have no idea how you would achieve that look with normal hobby paints. In similar discussions in years past, it was discussed that there are a few master brush painters that can do it, but it is not easy. 

     

     

     

     

    Thank you Kurt, I try those in the future.

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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 someone here who might be will to share space? Thanks

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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.
