Just joined - got my hands on a 1/12th Bentley kit ready for autumn/winter and/or lockdown.
Am looking to buy the necessary paints/ brushes/adhesives etc to build the kit - any advice on where to source them would like to use correct period product if available
I see there is an electric motor option (previously discussed on here) and wondered if anyone had found a suitable replacement motor as my kit does not have one included.
Thanks for any advice - no doubt will be on here again once I get started
1. just about any regular 1.5 to 3v electric motor will fit. The very old Airfix motor had side thingies on them and they helped hold the motor in place, as well as helping it to run, Go to a Poundland shop and buy a small battery operated hand sized fan, for £1. Take it apart and you get an electric motor, a switch and a battery compartment
2. For paints, go to Halfords and get British Racing Green for a real car, in a spray can. But Humbrol does BRG as no 239 in the paints range, in enamel and acrylic. Brush this or use in an airbrush for finer control spray painting. By the way. British Racing Green was not just one shade of green, but just about any dark green will be ok.
