  8. Here's what I do 1. Give the model a glossy surface with Future. 2. Once cured brush Future on to the area for the decal. 3. Place the decal in water for the required time. 4. Apply the decal to the desired spot on the model 5. Gently squeeze out the waterfrom the decal with a damp piece of kitchen paper. 6. Brush more Future on to the decal. This will pull the decal down on to the surface very firmly. This I find works on just about any decals and gives them a painted on appearance. HTH Stephen

I currently use Vallejo as they're absolutely brilliant even for handbrushing with little or no brush marks, a HUGE range and those little bottles which seem to hold a huge amount.I've thinned with just plain tap water and had no problems at all.Polly Scal are also superb and the main reason that I don't use them more is that my local shop J
  12. The missiles started out white with appropriate bands but in the mid late eighties they were painted gray to match the airframe.if you're doing a current a/c I'd use grey.The colored bands refer to live/ inert missiles.The brown band is for the motor and a yellow band with that designates a live warhead.A dummy missile would have both bands blue.

  14. Very graciously supplied a decal sheet (and plasticard) and asked for nothing in return.An all round good egg! Stephen
  15. I've switched to acrylics with Pollyscale/Aeromaster (still got a few left)/lifecolor/Tamiya and my current fave Vallejo which are about the easiest paints I've ever used.I also have some Color of Eagles which I haven't tried yet. Stephen
  16. I use bicarbonate of soda and superglue.This gives a rock hard finish that can be sanded smooth as glass. HTH Stephen
