Clifford Keesler Augie is the Master of NMF finishes with the ole hairy stick. I would love to know how she does it. I can not get even close to her, even with a darn airbrush. I have even tried the AK True metal colors in the tubes and still can't get it. Don't know. LOL.

Augie Hehe I've said the trick a number of times. Treasure silver which is a wax guilt applied with a soft flat brush like your waxing a car works a treat
Augie Oh it gets soo much worse than that... I need to work out how to make it look like a wessex and not a H34 with a strapon nose...

Augie Plus need some small rivets.. larger rivets.. party pack of lead foil.. so its on hold while I source the wonderment of additional items needed.

David Taylor Do you think it's a scaled up Revell wessex which is just awful.Took me ages to make an approx wessex with scratch and aftermarket.Bought a couple just for weapon pylons then somebody from Shapeways brought some 3D out.LOL

Augie I dont think it is, its almost like they tried to outdo Italeri in the shit stakes..
Augie Holly!!! where on earth have you been, seems like ages since I last saw you around.
I've not done a wiff in a while so maybe.. Or a cammo one..

Holger Kranich Hello Augie my dear! I switched to new job so my time sitting behind the personal computer is very limited this days. But I missed you all so much! And in my mind I never really left scalemates. Love ya! Lol

Augie Ahh that explains it, hope your doin good love ya too!
Augie Sorry Guys, looks like the re-pop has been cancelled. Have seen lots of people have reported their pre-orders have been cancelled (like mine has)
Been unable to find any office notice from airfix however have marked this one as cancelled. Original issue has been left is so those that think they have this in their stashes, may wish to make the change over.
Nathan Dempsey Definitely. When I had looked previously the high end on ebay was $70, now the only one listed is $115 + $21 shipping. I think I'll just wait and watch for now. I have plenty of other kits to build
Spanjaard let's face it... a tomcat can look good in almost any color

Augie Lol thanks Urb, will have to see if I can make one
Thanks Daniel, Yeah its an oldie, but glad it was found, i forgot about it.
Spanjaard, yours right she does.

Clifford Keesler Hey, Augie do you have a decal sheet with these schemes or is markings you will have to make yourself. I have a whole "pride" of cats and I like some of those color schemes. Would be a welcome change from the standard grey.
30. April, 03:26
Augie Hey Clifford, no sheet, would be a case of raiding the ole spares.
30. April, 07:43
Clifford Keesler Not a problem, I have plenty. LOL. It is a project to think about. Where did you get the schemes? If you don't mind telling me.
Clifford Keesler Cool, I will see what I can find. I got a full days work in on the Lighting yesterday, all that is left is to put the decals on the weapons and install the seat. I will try and get some pictures up tomorrow.
Chris Parsons Hey Augie very nicely done! How was the build? I've got the Hawkeye 2000 in the stash I keep wanting to get a start on, seeing yours makes me think I should give it a go. I'm thinking it'll need a little weight up front to stay on its wheels.
