  1. I've virtually completed an Airfix 72-scale Sea Knight (in Swedish Navy OOB markings). (sorry - the pasting of the photo FAILED!!) I've lined the (otherwise) hollow inside and added seats (for something to look-at). I can open the rear doors and I've left the starboard 2-part door open in the way is happens on the real thing. But I dunno what happens to the port-side door. Which way does it move to open? Any ideas? Many thanks. George, out..............
  2. AF White - suggestion (to make the task easier). Mask only longitudinally (along the axis of the fuselage) with long lengths of tape, then spray. Next, strip-off the masking, then mask (in the same way) across the axis, and repeat. I like to use three strips to do the masking - the first(a narrow one) along one side of the 'panel', another narrow one along the other side, then a 3rd to bridge the gap between, and to overlap, the two. Good luck with 'the big one'. George, out..............
  3. G'Day Charlie. PM read & a return PM sent. HTH. George, out..............
  4. G'Day Charlie C. Send me your delivery address,nd I'll send you some black EZ-Line from Australia. It'll be only a standard letter. No charge (it wouldn't be worth the hassle). George, out..................
  5. Black under the rotor blades? Ahhh - additional info. Many thanks, Winnie. George, out...........
  6. Belly is dark green, so I'll do the underside of the rotors in that too. I'll splinter-cam the tops of the rotors as per Barkin' Mad's photo (many thanks, Mate). Why didn't I think of IPMS Stockholm? George, out............

  8. I'm gunna start this as I have acquired a slightly-started kit (the inside is painted interior green). It'll be done OOB(ish) in the Swedish 4-colour splinter camouflage pattern (it looks similar to a Viggen) with the kit decals. But while perusing the instructions, I couldn't help but notice that the instructions are suspiciously uninformative on the colours of A) the interior of the fuselage (there's precious little provided in the kit anyway) and B) the top & under-surfaces of the rotor blades. Can the Brains Trust here assist me? I've seen a photo of a model of this type of chopp
  9. You could insert the frame parts (from card or rod) then fill the clear bits with Krystal Kleer. Good luck your your search (or solution), Mr B. George, out...............
  10. AND - the Bandai 144-scale kit is about 10% BIGGER than the Fine Molds 144-scale kit. They can't BOTH be right. George, out............
  11. Yes to all of the above, BUT - on the one I fondled, the instructions show the lighting kit, but it is NOT included in the kit (so why the clear blue bit?), fine piping is moulded separately (see this post) BUT the radar dish support is cast as a solid chunk, large exhaust ports have moulded-in detail, BUT it is to be covered-over with a solid plate (is a PE set due-in?) the cannon-controls are also chunky, the landing gear pads are cast solid (as per all other kits of the MF) - not perforated, But these are only MY observations. The lighting kit is available as a separate buy. George
  12. Hey, I'm really happy that they got through. Thanks Teeradej. George, out................
  13. Hi Teeradej. Decals (& return address) sent 5 days ago. George, in Aust, out........
  14. G'Day Teeradej. I can cover you, for the main bots, but not the stenciling (#26-39). I'm in Melbourne, Australia, and I'll cover the postage. Send to where? George, out..............
  15. I'm in the same boat with that MiG.3 and a 72-scale Wirraway. My solution is to fill the errant item with liquid plaster, then vacform myself one on that plaster plug. I'm in Melbourne, Australia. Good luck in your search. George, out...............
