Christoph Kunz Hello Munkyslut, the turret under the nose could be from a B17. Anf the turret at the rear looks like the one on the Heinkel He177. Maybe department X of Revell could help you.
27. January at 16:24:06
Munkyslut Ahh that's excellent info Christoph
I really would like to get it as close to the box art as possible, even down the bands faces & the bombs blazing away.
Airfix had a great idea with the Motörhead theme, but didn't put as much effort in to the box contents....... the separate decal sheet is cool & the paint chart a welcome addition, but the 3 airman included are all seated when one should be laying prone for the nose gun.
I can understand the lack of turrets as that would require retooling the glasshouse, not to mention the turret itself.
It's still pretty cool though 8)

Munkyslut Shot a coat of light grey primer to check the sanding of the gap filling at the wing & fuselage joins & im pretty happy, a nice coat of Matte Black being laid down very soon!

Nathan, I love that paint colour, looks gorgeous & was a piece of piss to get right
22. September 2019 at 20:30:44
Munkyslut All done bar a couple of tiny details to paint in like the hood straps & front fender marker lights, plus the radiator skull mascot needs gluing in place.
I know the pic is shite but the lights terrible in here so I'll take some nice daylight pix in the morning.
Wish I'd weathered it a bit now though.........

Danny Meer Just looked at what is in store and it's easy to lower prices when your "normal" price is way over market value lol
22. November 2019 at 13:30:17
Munkyslut Are they pricey then? I'm probably well out of touch on new model prices, I usually only buy vintage for my hoard!
22. November 2019 at 20:33:37
Danny Meer well don't know if that's normal prices for UK, but when compared to some dutch shops some kit here are 20,- to 30,- euro less on normal price :) and my stash is also mostly '70's 80's kits :)
23. November 2019 at 12:54:07
Chaz Gordon Hobby craft mainly sell at MSRP, but when they do black friday deals, they can be bargains. Just picked up the Revell Black Pearl for £11.50, which is half MSRP, but I also always check ebay/amazon before I buy in store, and the best price elsewhere was £14.50. As it's a subject I've been saying would be cool to build, I got it. They had the Transit at a bit of a discount, but I already have one, and to be honest, it was still overpriced for the detail level of the kit @ £25

Munkyslut For anybody interested there's a 2018 movie called 303 Squadron showing on U.K. satellite TV at present.
It tells the story of the struggles of a group of Polish flying officers in England during WW2.
The main character is none other than Jan Zumbach, the pilot of this very Spitfire!
11. November 2019 at 23:27:43

Munkyslut Nice sunny day so out the side yard for some daylight pics.
Pretty happy with the result, been a lot of fun & got me doing something other than muscle cars, street rods & superbikes ;)
It ain't perfect, my skills are definitely at the lower end of the scale,its already had some damage thanks to the Three Stooges masquerading as my dogs, but I'm calling this one DONE!

November 6, 2019

Tech tip please!
I’m ready to apply decals to my 1/24 Spitfire.
Is it better to lay down a clear coat on to the painted surface before AND after applying decals? Or just the one coat over the completed model?
I understand the idea to seal & protect decals or to give a gloss, sheen or matt effect etc, just not clear (ha!) on the best practice.
6. November 2019 at 12:30:43 Share
Treehugger The reason one will want a good-enough gloss coat under/before the decals, is to make a smoother surface for the decals to adhere to. Problem is usually, that without a good-enough gloss coat, you get air trapped underneath the decal, which is called "silvering" and looks bad. A good-enough gloss coat under the decal prevents this. You also want a gloss coat over the decal, to avoid messing up the decals when adding any weathering effects, or say a pin wash. Adding a gloss coat over the decal, also helps hide the edges of the decals, as the gloss coat will eventually fill the cavity next to the edges of the decals. Apparently some decals are thicker than others.

In my experience, adding a gloss coat, can be tricky if you insist on getting a very smooth finish, which may require more than one layer of gloss coat. Another problem is that, you also risk a non-smooth surface, if you airbrush on the gloss coat wrong. I honestly am not 100% sure how to best do this. I only know that, I can airbrush on that stuff with ca 7 psi wet-in-wet, and in patches, to avoid blowing air, or creating overspray, over a surface that has gloss coat liquid on it. Problem then is, too much liquid, and the gloss coat will run, or pool around details. Also make sure you have used a brush to remove dust and remains of sanded plastic from panel lines so that the panel lines aren't sealed with plastic dust in them.
6. November 2019 at 12:34:38
Roland Revolvermann Just my 2 cents: I recommend clear coat (gloss) before applying decals because
1.) prevents (mostly) shimmering
2.) applying for me works easier
6. November 2019 at 12:35:27
Treehugger I suppose, one could try adding the gloss coat with a plain brush. Unsure if one could thin the gloss coat a little, in order to more easily brush on several nice layers of gloss coat.

I would avoid adding a gloss coat over clear parts. Any single speck of dust on the gloss coat over the clear parts, and that is just annoying. Imo, better to mask off the clear parts. Or, some add gloss coat to clear parts separately before gluing on the parts onto the model, another set of issues I would argue.
6. November 2019 at 12:42:00
Treehugger I would recommend, trying out a method, on a scrap model FIRST! To see the result and see if you are happy with the outcome, and maybe get some practice.
6. November 2019 at 12:42:43
Holger Kranich Nearly the same here: Gloss coat - decals - washing - matt coate. Happiness! :)
6. November 2019 at 12:43:09
Treehugger If a layer of gloss coat looks pebbly, and rough in places, one should be able to knock down the roughness, very gently, using some very fine sand paper. Just try avoid sanding away the paint underneath. A nice thing is, that, when adding a gloss coat, the resulting shine makes the paint look uniform, even if you say sanded the layer of paint as well.

Note: Adding a gloss coat, will make your paint look a little darker. If you add a matte or satin varnish on top of a gloss coat, iirc, the paint will look a little brighter. Warning: Too much matte varnish, and the surface might turn white'ish. Unsure how to fix that, if that happens. I've seen it once with Vallejo's matte varnish. I never tried to fix it, so I don't know more about that. Diluting the matte varnish a little should help avoid ending up with too much matte varnish I think.
6. November 2019 at 12:44:28
Munkyslut Thanks for the comprehensive advice ;)
The matt/light & gloss/dark info is very interesting.
I can see the merit in the gloss filling the decal edges too, I think I'll practice on one of the rear wings, they are yet to be glued on & easy to rectify if I stuff it up!

Hi Mates
I'm at the point with my models now where I really need to ditch my dirt cheap Chinese airbrush effort & purchase a decent quality one.
I used to have a Badger about 35 years ago when I was airbrushing my mates bike fuel tanks, are they still good?
Things must have moved on loads by now, can I have some recommendations please?

Treehugger I have two Iwata Eclipse aribrushes, but I don't know I am no expert, I can't help but feel that they are more for airbrushing t-shirts than smaller kit models. Hm, I think I have the .35 and 0.50 needles. I also bought an aftermarket paint limiter (replaces the rear-handle part) that can be fitted.

The number one reason I chose Iwata Eclipse, was because of the large and self centering nozzle. The nozzle is a large brass piece (brass I guess), and is rather easy to fit onto the airbrush, as they aren't screwed on like nozzles usually are. Nozzles also tend to be tiny and very fragile and have to be screwed on afaik.
1. October 2019 at 21:04:00
Treehugger Hm, the ideal PSI for Iwata Eclipse is iirc, between 25 and 30. Makes me wonder if it performs worse at 15 psi. I guess I should try test that some time.

Testing is very important when using an airbrush I would argue, as it is practically the only SANE way you can learn without messing things up.
1. October 2019 at 21:08:55
Treehugger Also a good idea to have a few scrap models around, as it might be a little boring testing an airbursh on a plastic cup or a piece of paper. I would never use precious sheets of styrene for practicing airbrushing, that stuff is too expensive.
1. October 2019 at 21:10:46
Treehugger I would argue that at least, cleaning an Iwata Eclipse airbrush is fairly easy. I don't think I've ever taken it apart so far, ofc, I haven't been airbrushing as much as I should. I started using those el cheapo airbrushes from China. Oddly enough, the build quality of the ones I bought differed. E.g plastic vs metal handle. Centered and non-centered needle. :|
1. October 2019 at 21:12:36
Munkyslut Thanks Treehugger, a lot of information! Good to hear some first hand experience.

Bozzer, what a great site! I'll phone them tomorrow.
360 looks interesting, I like the idea of a gun with gravity AND syphon feed.
1. October 2019 at 21:29:52
Andy Ball Well, I've moved up from the Peoples' Republic, (and pretty good one too), to the Harder & Steenbeck Infinity CR (0.15/0.4mm) 2 in 1. Mastering it now. Fabulous brush. But that's my humble opinion....
1. October 2019 at 21:49:10
Bozzer Mate, I find the 360 awesome! The cup maybe a tad small, but for fine stuff, its wicked. The jar can get in the way, at first, but you learn to adapt a slight angle of airbrushing. The capacity is awesome! You can easily paint a 1/25 car with it. It also helps you get in places where you normally would be impeded by your airline.
1. October 2019 at 21:57:08
Treehugger To clarify something I had been too vague about: The Iwata Eclipse HP-CS is normally 0.35 I believe, but one can buy a conversion kit for the Eclipse HP-CS airbrush, so I bought a second Iwata airbrush together with a 0.50 conversion kit. So, one have to change the nozzle parts to fit any 0.50 needle. The idea is to use the 0.50 airbrush for primer, though I have not yet used it (hobby been on hold for a while now while idling and finally having moved to a new place).

Btw, I think the reason why I initially thought it was weird with my Iwata Eclipse, was that it was unusual not having a paint limiter knob by default, something I was used to.

As soon as I click on newsfeed I get kicked off, says I’m not logged in, so I log in again & get kicked off soon as I click on anything!

Taken me half hour to get back on, seems ok for now but just thought I’d share some grief, unfair for me to hog it al eh? ;)

Hi all
Is there an easy method to make windscreens, side glass etc?
I have a 1/16 Camaro Z/28 that I just bagged off eBay & the glass sprue/bag was missing.
I was going to use some tinted cellophane sheet & simply glue in to the inside of the window aperture.
There is no side glass on this one & I'm going to leave the T-Tops of to show the interior, so just front & rear screens.
They are pretty basic curved forms, no compound curves.
Any other suggestions?

Tim Heimer A thought on this, The Camaro and Firebird are both GM F body's. MPC has the 79 bird out in 1/16. Theoretically it should work. plus it has the T-tops. This kit does not have side windows, but I think your kit didn't either. Just a thought.
15. June 2019 at 13:05:02
Munkyslut Tim that's brilliant! Yes I think it'll work, nice one!
15. June 2019 at 17:40:56
Mike DeSorbo You can purchase clear plastic acetate from several suppliers in different thicknesses. I have made several sets of glass with terrific results.
14. August 2019 at 10:29:30
B R I use a empty coke/soft drink bottle 1 its easy to use, mould, cut sand ect, 2 grate to use model glue with and 3 they are ultra clear.
14. August 2019 at 10:38:11
Munkyslut Cheers for the ideas Mike & BR!
I like the drinks bottle cheat & I think I've got some mildly tinted clear Lexan sheet so I'll try that too.
14. August 2019 at 14:05:51
Mike DeSorbo I like the drink bottle idea! Going to try it... Lexan works very well. You can heat it with a hairdryer to get the radius you may need for the windshield.
14. August 2019 at 18:20:39
Bob Hall MPC is making a1/16 Firebird and the windows could match up. I don't know what kit you have, but this could be a possibility. Round 2 has a parts order section on their website.

14. August 2019 at 19:13:07
B R I never have herd of Lexan sheets are they from evergreen?
14. August 2019 at 20:20:53
B R Yea the drink bottle works good for me i have scratch built cockpit window framing and used it for the glass came out so nice
14. August 2019 at 20:22:06
Munkyslut Cheers Bob I'm gonna check it out ;)

Is there a form of vinyl wrap available for the model maker?
I was thinking about finishes, especially satins, coloured chrome, carbon fibre etc that are easily available for the automotive world & just wondered if there was something to replicate that in our world?

21. July 2019 at 22:01:03
Nigel Chapman They are organised by Mat Irvine a car and sci-fi modeller (x BBC). Though not my thing, the sci-fi show is brilliant.

Munkyslut It'll have to be a bar in Switzerland, it's the only neutral ground I can think of & the beers great!
We have some real car guys here don't we?
I was totally obsessed with US cars when I was a kid in the 70's, drawing them, collecting all the little 1/64 die casts, I had Redlines & Mag wheels imprinted on my brain.
Thats what got me modelling in the first place, I must've completed every Monogram 1/24th street/custom/drag offering in their catalog!
I've got a yard full of US cars (real ones) & building my model stash up nicely.

I know this may be a silly question but is there a forum thread on major restoration of old previously assembled models?
I’m just rebuilding a vintage 1960’s issue 1/8th Revell Corvette & would love some little tips & secrets on how to make 50 year old stuff look a little bit presentable for display.

Łukasz Gliński There used to be an event for that: The Neglected Kit Resurrection Groupbuild (1. January until 31. December, UK)
(event used as a kind of workaround I assume). It died some time ago, though it is one of my favs.
20. May 2019 at 12:49:38
Munkyslut Yes that's exactly the kind of thing I'd hoped for, Shane it's gone! Thanks for trying though
20. May 2019 at 20:30:35
Augie Well its in history, but no reason It could not be resurrected.. thats the great thing with this site.
