TIM0001 PAINT SHAKER

PAINT SHAKER

A new way to mix paint!

The Paint Shaker by Timodel saves you time and effort by mixing all types of paint in a fraction of the time that it would when mixing by hand, it produces a thorough and consistent mix every time which is essential for serious modellers but can’t easily be achieved manually.

The Paint Shaker has the added advantage of mixing paints whilst still inside their original sealed containers, therefore avoiding unwanted splashes, drips and spills that you can experience when using a conventional stirrer.

The robust cradle and straps will securely hold bottles, tins or jars of paint up to 35mm in diameter making it compatible with all major brands of paint for modellers.

Easy to use

Using the paint shaker is easy. Simply place your jar, tin or bottle of paint (up to 35mm in diameter) into the cradle on the top of the machine, secure the elasticated strap over your paint container and switch on the machine. The paint shaker does all of the hard work for you by thoroughly shaking your paint until it is completely blended, the shaker should take between 20 and 30 seconds to complete its task depending on the paint. Once mixed, remove your paint from the shaker and you’re good to go, no fuss, no mess and no hard work involved. The paint shaker can even tackle older paints that have completely separated, as long as they have not dried out just give them a longer shake on the machine and your paint can still be used when you may have previously considered throwing them away!

A14002V Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.1

A14002V Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk.1

The most numerous fighter in service with the RAF at the start of the Battle of Britain, the Hawker Hurricane went on to prove itself a vital and effective fighter aircraft on all fronts of the Second World War. It came to be regarded as a rugged and reliable ground attack machine, but it was undoubtedly its’ service as a defensive fighter during the Battle of Britain that forged its reputation as one of the war’s great fighters. Entering service with 111 squadron in December 1937, the original fabric wings made way for metal ones by 1939. During the Battle of Britain, the average strength of fighter command was 1,326 Hurricanes compared to 957 spitfires. It was in a Hurricane that Flt. Lt. Nicholson gained fighter commands’ only Victoria Cross of the war, downing an enemy Messerschmitt Bf110, while his own aircraft was being engulfed with flames. After the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane went on to serve in the Far East, as well as the Desert and Eastern Front.

A12002V Airfix Messerschmitt Bf109E 1:24 scale

Designed by Professor Willy Messerschmitt, a director of the manufacturers Bayerische Flugzeuwerke AG, the prototype Bf109A first flew in 1935. The first major production variant, the Bf109E, was introduced into Luftwaffe service in December 1938. The E model was more powerful, better armed and armoured and by the summer of 1940, over 500 were in service for the offensive against Great Britain. By this time, the 109E had already proved to be a competent, if not the world’s best, fighter aircrafts in the skies above Poland, France and the Low Countries. The 109E became a symbol of the Luftwaffe over England during the Battle of Britain and along with the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane, it became one of the most famous fighter aircraft of all time. In the skies over Southern England in 1940, the 109E first had its shortcomings exposed. Its range was limited, with endurance over London being just five minutes. It was also unable to turn with either the Spitfire or the Hurricane, although its cannon armament was superior. It later served on the Eastern Front as well as over the Western Desert.

A12001V Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk1a 1:24 scale

The immortal Spitfire was the most famous fighter of theSecond World War and one of the greatest warplanes of all time. When the Battle of Britain began in the summer of 1940 there were nineteen squadrons of Spitfires in action.
The two Spitfires for which markings are supplied represent different moments of the battle as it raged from the hot summer days into the cold winter of 1940. The first is the iconic DW-K of No.610 ‘County of Chester’ Squadron,
with its large code letters and oversized roundels that instantly evoke the Battle of Britain. Based at Biggin Hill, DW-K was initially believed to be P9495 (included in this kit) which joined the squadron in June 1940 and was eventually damaged in a dogfight with a Messerschmitt 109 in August 1940, with the codes then transferred to another Spitfire. The other aircraft is X4561, QJ-B of No.92 Squadron based at Manston, Kent, December 1940 and reflects the changes to operational camouflage at the time with the underside of the port wing being painted black as a recognition aid.
This fabulous model will show the cockpit, Merlin engine,gun ports and other great detail.
