  1. Past hour
  2. Hi Mike It's a Revel boxing of Dragon's CVL 22. Cheers
  3. Today
  4. Bob - just browsing on Britmodeller. I'm pleased to see you are still building great models. Keep the skill going ! Mike H SNWMS
  5. Yesterday
  6. Like like like! Very nice mate. Excellent weathering and well done on the funnel smoke. Are these pre-painted figgies or did you paint them?
  7. Cracking build
  8. I finished this beast off last night and finally took some photos. It's Revell's North Sea Fishing Trawler on a scratchbuilt base. She's built pretty well straight out of the box and painted up with Vallejo and Model Master acrylics. I added some N-scale figures to the deck to make it a little more lifelike (a first for me), a new made of cheesecloth and some cotton smoke. I'll admit it right away - I was very influenced by Beefy66's Fishy Rust Bucket build of last year, even though I'd bought the kit before his work was posted. His work on the cabin windows and the salt-job to simulate chipped paint inspired me to try it myself, and I'm happy with the work. [/URL]
  9. What with us to cheer you on? Martian the Perplexed
  10. Looking very good Beefy, like the prop wash. All the best Chris
  11. Nice one Chris those figures look tiny beefy
  12. Well taking a break from my Huron build to get work done on the house so had a little bit of time to get back with this one have now set it in some water and started to paint in the main color beefy
  13. The splinter on my Tirpitz didn't match up in the side view, it's more tricky than I though.
  14. Not me your honner!!! Frank.
  15. Somebody has stolen Kev's Mo & Jo..................................................................
  16. Last week
  17. 1/700 USS Triton SSRN-586 the first submarine to circumnavigate the world submerged, also the only western submarine to date with twin nuclear reactors. This is the OKB resin model, hand painted in humbrol enamels, populated with Eduard 1/700 naval figures. Build thread here; All the best Chris
  18. Thank you Bernd Cheers Frank I've been missing you, does this mean we might see some more epic building from you.... Things a bit slow here, Mo & Jo have left the building ....... just tinkering with some bits & pieces Kev
  19. Phase one of my own attempt. I'm sure, that it can be done way better, I'm learning and experimenting as I go, as everyone else Dave which Independence is that? If one of those LCS's than armour methods will suit it well, it even looks more like Abrams than a ship Cheers Mick
  20. Nice work Kev, sorry for not being around. But other thing's more Important to tend too. Like your very nice etching work lol. Foxy.
  21. First saw that lovely artwork in one of those old Purnells' History of World War II partwork specials many many years ago. Nice to see it again.
  22. Very nice, looks like a straight forward build.
  23. Thanks Kev, I need to consider how the model is displayed before I start sticking too many things to it, otherwise I will end trashing it. I tend to get grumpy and frustrated when that happens so I am planning to head off that event...........I'll still do some thing stupid along the way no doubt.
  24. It's the little things that lift a kit to the next level........... Nice touch Hell you stick 6 bits together and already you're displaying it ....... Kev
  25. Check the colour PB10, which I believe is available from Sovereign Hobbies.
  26. Pressing along with the build. The mouldings of the kit are on the whole quite reasonable but one or two items benefit from a degree of enhancement. One of these items is the launcher base for the Exocet missile canisters. In reality these are a framework construction, however sticking to the story of trying to build this model as an out of the box build I decided to make a small enhancement by adding thin plastic strip to the sides of the launcher bases. When painted with the Exocet canisters fitted they don’t look too bad. The Exocet canisters themselves are straight from the kit, although they needed some tidying up with a needle file. That is it for the moment. The next job I have is to think about how I am going to display the model. Thanks for looking
  27. Thanks Phil, I just hope it is good enough.
  28. sorry for the length of time to upload this - photo-bucket is a nightmare to use compared to what it used to be like this is HMS Upholder from Profile Warship
  29. Thanks for the welcome and nice comments, people on this forum really have been an inspiration.
