  1. A friend has used Veteranus several times and like Col says it takes all the hassle out and is well worth the 30%. I believe if the perceived value of the sale is over £500 then the pickup is free too. He was very pleased with what he got in the end.
  2. Or contact The Hobby Company and buy the appropriate sprues!!!! I've used them before and they are helpful, plus the sprue prices are pretty reasonable. I bought a 1/32 Zero engine sprue and that was £10, plus a 1/32 F-4 decal sheet for £5. The only downside was postage which is I think fixed at £4-5. Rich
  3. Stunning job of a stunning aircraft mate. 👍 Rich
  4. Now they are looking good. I guess white or bone is fine as looking at them they get pretty sooty in quite distinct patterns. That’s your next challenge….. RC
  5. I reckon a few dabs of blue, purple etc and they’ll look really good. Just checking you are doing the insides white as I believe they are ceramic. Rich
  6. I had thought the same, but you've just saved me trying it, as it's clearly a workable solution. Great stuff. I generally like my a/c clean, but some times it just looks better loaded to the gunnels.
  7. If you are thinking about ordnance on magnets it works. I've got an R-27 that hangs quite well on it's rail. Larger stuff though will need bigger magnets. First 4 Magnets is where I got mine. Just be sure to put them in the rail and the weapon, but of course make sure you get the polarity right before pushing them in to the tiny drilled holes, as if you don't you get your first live launch. Don't ask me how I know!!!!!!!
  8. Looking ace there Duncan. Nice to see you cracking on again after getting distracted by that silly Spitfire thingy. Rich
  9. Looks just fine. Is it even possible to over weather a Y-wing? Rich
  10. Cheers Darren, but excitement over. I assumed (wrongly) hat you would still get the N2 cowling etc.... Sadly you don't, so won't be picking one of these up. Rich
  11. Well I know where I’m heading tomorrow. Cheers for the heads up Darren. Not really my scale, but for £7.50!!!
  12. Hmmmm. Good idea Skwonk. I guess they’d be pretty good for pastels or even dry brushing.
  13. Only if the instructions given verbally and written instructions are wrong. If that’s the case then we’re all stuffed, or I have a good gag reflex. The swab is only so long and short of sticking my whole hand in I don’t see what else I can do. Must admit the nasal one makes my nose itch for a while afterwards. Must ask my ex who’s a nurse and daughter-in-law who’s a GP if they do their own. If not god knows what the answer is! Actually what’s the general opinion @phoenix54of the lateral flow tests from your daughters? Any use at all?
  14. Having not really seen it finished, that's a beautiful job mate.
  15. Those Akan paints look pretty close to the MRP ones Duncan. I wonder if they will once dry? The comparison I saw had them worlds apart, with the Akan ones being significantly darker, so maybe they have changed them. Rich
