  1. Hi all. I have always admired the RAF Phantoms in dark green/ocean grey camouflage since I was a boy. They looked powerful and brutish not to mention much more different from the other Phantom oprators. In I /32 scale there are a few options. Wait for the upcoming HK Models kit, get a second mortgage to buy the Wild Hare conversion or....make your own conversion. I do not want to wait that long, a second mortgage is out of the question so option three would be it. Luckily I am not the only one with this desire. Master modeller Frank Mitchell did just that and with his articles on LSP for
  2. Just signed up after lurking for a while...so I thought I'd introduce myself... I've been making kits since I was about 11... joined IPMS long ago: my membership number is 224..... hence 224 Peter! Model making tailed off somewhat in the mid 80s when children arrived, has a brief flicker in the late 90s but now, with retirement, I'm back to where I was in about 1979... I've always been tempted by large scale models, 1/48th, 1/32nd and then 1/24th when Airfix introduced them. Although my modelling dried up, kit buying didn't: I have a stash that should keep me active for years.
  3. Long long ago in 1973 I went, as an exchange student, to Houston TX. I took some basic modelling tools and tins of Humbrol paint. There I purchased the then new Revell Hurricane and made a start. Returning home in September I carried on, painting the camouflage and RAF roundels, using a spring bow compass and paint, intending to finish the aircraft as one of the aircraft flown in France, based on a photo in "Fighter Pilot": I have a copy of the original 1942 publication in hardback, heavily censored: no mention of the Squadron, the names of the officers or anything much else! So, move o
  4. AERO Line AL 4058 1/48 Pilot figure for BAC Lightning Available for $11.30 or Eur7,90 from Plusmodel. The blister pack contains one 1/48 resin figure of an English Electric / BAC Lightning pilot in 1960's flightgear. This is how the figure looks when unpacked, a fine film of resin "flash" has to be removed. Just breaking away the flash on both sides gives the following result, without me removing the last traces of mould lines: It's evident that the figure is beautifully mastered and cast. It looks quite accurate too, except for one detail which I will highli
  5. Hi guys, What are the findings at this time by aviation historians / archaeologists on the interior colours used by the RAF in WW II? I've always thought it was the well known grey-green as exemplified by this walk around-photo from the Aircraft Resource Center's walk around section: However, I remember someone telling me (or did I read it on the internet?) that this grey-green was more of a post-war color and the interior -or at least the cockpit colours- of RAF a/c in WW II were much greener. Is this true or is it a legend or just mis-information? Thanks in advance! Erik.
  6. Hi all, Here is the completed Tempest which as a sample was reviewed by Jeroen Peters and me Here on LSM ( and LSP) Last year. Although a great kit, it gave me fits sometimes because of il- fitting Parts such as the cockpit and the canopy. Nothing that couldn't be solved though. The result is a very good representation of Hawkers finest. Apart from the wheels, which were replaced By Barracuda items, the kit was built from the box. You can find the work in progress here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/1271-pcm-hawker-tempest-v/ Hope you like it. I know I do. Cheers C
  7. Hello, everybody! it is my first question in this forum. I have in my hands the Wingnut Wings Fokker DV.II and I would like to paint it in the RAF colours. Please, could anyone tell me the appropriated colours for my project mainly to the wings (upper and lower sides). Must I keep the lozenge pattern camouflage? Any help is welcome. All the best, Fabrício
