I still have the Bf 109E I made many years ago, also had a wrecked Spitfire and a Harrier. This looks like a very nice model. Always wanted the Stuka

That is an interesting and rather cool video of the model, very intersting stuff indeed. Thanks for posting the link.

I've got the Tamiya 1/48 Mossie, and that's a fair size, I shudder to think how much space will be required for this.

that's gonna be nice.:clap: :thumbup:

Hey, I tuned in to see all that technology, but wait a minute...

No funky music - complete silence! :(

I've got one of these on pre-order, hope it's accurate enough for the price.

Airfix had planned a 1/24th scale Mossie as part of their 1/24th scale range in the 1970's but despite all the reams of research, it was ultimately deemed that the moulds were going to prove too expensive. Rather than waste all the effort, Airfix used their research to produce the 1/48th scale kit (still the best of all the 1/48th scale Mossie kits). Now that mould making technology has become cheaper, the project has become viable again nearly forty years later.

lovely stuff, I bet the model will be great of the 'wooden wonder' in that size.

Nice video.

I have a JU-87, P-51 and FW-190 in 1/24. The Harrier is only in the box. I love these Kits. :thumbup:

dear airfix, please make a videa for all of your other kits :lol:
very nice. but i am currently in despair over the Firflash, and it has given me modellers block. I want to finish it, but i dont know how to work the airbrush!

DX-SFX 20-03-2009 06:05 PM

Push the button down to let the air flow and pull the button back to increase the amount of paint coming through!

That tutorial would cost you thirty quid elsewhere. :lol:

Conrad Turner 20-03-2009 07:28 PM

And if it's only a single action? Is it connected to a compressor or aircan? :lol:

Jade Falcon 20-03-2009 07:30 PM

Oh, and a good mix for the paints if I remember right (haven't used my airbrush in some years) is isoproponol. Or is that for cleaning it out....damn, must be the onset of senility. :D

Conrad Turner 20-03-2009 07:35 PM

Yes, as discussed here on the board. Looks like you have to get it from the internet nowadays.

FeRaHGo, We live within about half an hour of each other, if you want I can set up some stuff and show you how to work an airbrush, either if you come to me or if you want me to get to you. Most of it is quite easy to do, and I may even be able to find an old Badger single action for you to practice on if you want.

I currently use an Aztec for the majority of my work, but keep a decent Badger double action for the real fine stuff. I had a DVD which I gave to Wookiee that showed an American guy do some real fine work with an airbrush very similar in design to the double action Badger I have.

Some of the Revell airbrush are Badger rename. I think?

FeRaHGo 21-03-2009 11:46 AM

Cheers Weaponsmith but I'm ok thanks. i kind know how to work the thing now (revell beginners on, can powered) don't i have to use thinners on the paints or something? I know I have to use thinners to clean it, but my history tutor said i should mix them with the paint? He also reccomended Tamiya Thinners.
cheers

Conrad Turner 21-03-2009 12:07 PM

Yes, you will need to thin the paints to get them to flow freely through an airbrush. How much will depend on the paint itself, and the size of nozzle you are using. Use of an airbrush is really just down to practice, and once you get better at using it for basecoats and masking for different colours there are one or two tricks such as removing the protective cap for really fine work - but you have to take extra care not to damage the needle - or adding even more thinner and being extra gentle with the amount of paint you spray at once to build up layers of paint. But even that is better with practice.
