    1/72 Airfix Hawk RAAF 76 Squadron

    My RAAF Hawk is being built alongside the Special Hobby Wirraway and Italeri MB326. This one is by far the easiest build, my only concern being the depth of the panel lines :-\ I masked and sprayed Humbrol Light Ghost Grey as a base coat and made the "camo" with about a 4:1 mix of Humbrol 27...

    Anyone willing to part with:

    Badger Part 41016

    Hello, I have broken my Badger 175's needle tube, part 41016. This part is required to paint, and I can not find any parts anywhere that will ship to Australia. RUBBISH! I can't find anything and when I do, they don't even ship here! Annoying. I hate this, why can't they ship here! Anyway, if...

    Academy 48th Mirage IIIRZ SAAF

    Hey guys, first thread outside the Big Spring Contest build. Done the camo on my Mirage IIIR and bought the SAAF RZ decals for it after the Armee De L'Air "old style" Academy decals broke on me, I think the SAAF scheme is striking. The yellow and grey need touching up (the yellow needs it...

    Italeri 1/48 C-130 Hercules

    Ok, hi people. My dad built this C-130 in the 80s, and in those 30 odd years, parts have broken off etc. So when he gave the model to me, I decided that as my last modelling splurge before I put my money into getting my wings, I'd buy the resources to fix her up to her former glory, including a...

    Auto-Putty to the RESCUE, LOL!

    Well, I've been working on my C-130E/H kit, depicting a RAAF "A" variant (?) for around 8 months... The seam on the top of that bloody kit was KILLING ME!
