I think I would look or request in 'Aeroscale', also, the IPMS have a decalbank,
a link is on the IPMS website itself.

Best of luck.

We would love to see you there

Some are too fussy about aircraft models but the trick is just to ignore them. That's difficult if everyone posting is criticising the accuracy though!

I don't think that we attend any shows Suffolk way? I'm out of the loop for shows as I live in Cornwall! You could be our representative over there though What shows do you get to?

Maybe next year for SMW. If i can get the datesfor a hol.

Yup, found thar armour modelling seems to be too fussy about accuracy, if you look at one review site. (not UKbased)

If you are Suffolk way attending a show ,give me a shout.

Still looking at paint situation. Left a post on build questions , but no replies so far

Don't apologies! you can use what ever user name you like, it was my assumption
Yep, the dark side is them armour modellers!
Not an issue at all not going to Telford but I am intrigued as many of us consider free entrance to the big show the only real benefit of membership! It is also where the majority of us, that regularly meet, get together. It is a fabulous get together and we stay for the 2 days Hopefully we will see you at more local shows though?
Have you managed to sort out your paint issue?

Sorry i used Hussar, when i tried but failed miserably to build 1/35 Sherman`s in Canadian army markings 1943-45. Still got some unbuilt.

I assume coming from the dark side is leaving armour subjects.

Sory won`t be at Telford. Have never been , and its doubtful if i ever will.

I was thinking that you might have been a real Hussar! There's a few Vets in the club.
I'm glad to hear that you have turned from the dark side but you might like to know that we currently have a challenge on, for Telford, to build a 1/35 Tiger 1! It's Keith's challenge and I think that he is trying to turn us to the dark side
I wouldn't be able to help with acrylic paints, I hate them with a vengeance I use MR Paint or Colourcoats enamels.
Are you going to Telford?

Hi all , thanks for the welcome.

Hope i`ll be able to ssek help / advise needed.

Mal - HUSSAR58 was my old logon from a few years when i was with MAFVA / Armorama. Thought that log-on expired.

I am what might be called a returnee. Have a stash with various false starts.
Now i have found an interest in 48th Messerschmitt BF109. Am the early planning stages of Bf109-F4 trop. Having problems in finding accurate- ish acrylic paints. Any help greatly appreciated.

Phil
