  1. Hi guys, please read carefully, I emailed this forum to humbrol (club@airfix.com) and they sent me this reply "Hi Gideon, Thank you for bring this to our attention. Do you have the admin details for this forum? I apologise if you are the admin. We would very much like to know what problems some of the forum members have been having with some of the Humbrol products. Kindest regards Dale Airfix/Humbrol Team" so any feedback about the problems you have experienced with the paints, they ask that you contact them about it at club@airfix.com. regards, Gidoen
  2. Hi Guys, I absolutely agree with all that you say. I like using enamel rather than Tamiya's or other acrylics, because you can thin them more and you get longer pot-life when painting out of them. I am now using revell's pots but they also have their problems too. i would like to use Testor (model masters) paints but there is no vendor near to where i live. so i stick with revell but i find that after opening the pot once, it then goes off and because very thick and lacks adhesion. Maybe it is time to experiement further Lacquers? I think that humbrol should read this post but the likelihoo
  3. Some of you have been sending me PMs asking why I am using Milliput instead of car body filler as milliput is rock hard when sets in and becomes hard to sand. I must admit that I never tried using automotive body putty but I hear it is quite hardy, but I outline below some of the reasons as to why I still prefer using Milliput. You are right about milliput not being without its disadvantages too. It is hard to sand but what makes it ideal for me is its ability to be moulded into the desired shape which enables me to see the contours of the aircraft better. From my previous experience using a

  5. Hello again everybody I have managed to cover about 85% of the single fuselage half with milliput so far. Next I will remove the blue foam shapes and sand the milliput. I will then replace the foam bits with milliput after carefully crafting it to the correct shape. with main gear well bulge made from foam blue foam removed and will be replaced with milliput soon

  7. Hi Denzil, thank you for the thumbs up. You can bet on it that she is going to look very good. Maybe even better than what the kit manufacturer have done with the C-5 so far I intend to make it as accurately as possible, especially now that I have learned what a big following this particular aircraft has from other members on this forum. regards, Gideon
  8. Hi everybody! I managed to do some work over the weekend but was limited for time so I did not do as much as I originally planned. I went about strengthening the control surfaces of the C-5 by gluing some spars along the length of the wings elevators and the height of the tail. I also created a rig, made from foam board, to ensure that the wings remain straight when applying the milliput compound to create the volume of the wing. I then started applying the milliput to the wings, elevators and the main fuselage and smooth them between the bulkheads while maintaining the outline of t

  10. Hi, Here some of the progress I made on the tail and wings and ailerons so far. Hope you like it. I cut out the sections and the bulkheads and created notches to slot the bulkheads into the tail and wings. I then glued them all together and here are the results

  12. Hi to all, I am back with a little update. I have finished putting the horizontal bulkheads and attached some pieces, cut out of blue modelling foam, to where the wing root and the gear well bulges are going to be. I then used a foam cutting machine (that I scratch build very cheaply for this purpose) to shape other bits of foam that are going to be positioned between the bulkheads. This process took me two days to complete and the purpose is to save on the amount of milliput that is required for this project. Additionally, this also serves as a moral boost for me as the C-5 Galaxy is now be

  14. Hi Chris, Thanks for the 'Thumbs Up' As to your questions, I am using a blue semi-dense styerefoam I bought in a professional model shop. Hope this helps regards, Loveliner
  15. Hi, I am from Kent, United Kingdom, and have two aerospace icons on sale to raise some funds towards my new project (scratch building 1/200 C-5 Galaxy - see post on ARC: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index....;#entry1669928) THE ITEMS: 1. Hasegawa 1/48 Longbow AH-64 Apache in brand new conditions. All the sprues and parts are still factory sealed, including the original decals and instruction sheet (see pics). I am asking for £20, or nearest offer, + £2.85 delivery in UK (normal retail price in shops £25). 2. Eduard 1/72 L-39 Albatros bundle (includes original Eduard p
