  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks James it;s very kind of you to say, I'm very much an enthusiastic amiture! John
  3. That's stunning, you can't join the fuselage up now after putting all that extra detail in!
  4. Looking good! Martian
  5. Hello Dave and Nige, thanks a lot for your quick and precise response, I have Rays decals for the northeast/cambrian liveries, ( both so lovely I will buy another Viscount anyway) that should narrow down the sub-Type I guess?! As an engineer on this beauties you must know every inch of this plane.. Thanks again, Olli
  6. Well the tube cut ok - now have a clear centre section! I added some extra weight in to the wheel well at the front & took the chance to sit it on a pen & check the centre of gravity. Seemed ok so I stuck two AA batteries where the engines will go & it still sat nose down, so I hope it will be OK
  7. Hi Folks, I have been keeping my head down for the last while and just pottering about with a couple of projects both modelling related and life in general! But the time has finally come to start looking at getting back on the horse. I have got my eyes set on 1/32 build and the F-16 has really taken my eye. The question I have, as I have been looking at it for some time now, is which would people recommend when it come to the 1/32? For me its down to Tamiya or Academy. I have only ever built one tamiya kit, a 1/48 mozzie, and it was a dream in comparison to the few hobby boss kits I am used to. I have never had an Academy and I have heard on several occasions that fit can be a major issue with their kits and the F-16 is no different. I love the idea of all the variant choices in the Academy and the full belt feed rum being visible. I would most likely add more details to these areas as well. However the engine is very tempting with the tamiya. But obviously you are very much set on building the variant included in the box, which isn't the worst thing. I was thinking of doing a well weathered Hellenic F-16 or maybe an aggressor instead of the RLM grey. Anyway just interested to see what peoples opinions would be and if anyone has had their hands on both and can say what is what. Thanks for looking! Ian
  8. Thanks Olli. It's the first time i have done stuff in so much detail but i must say, that i am really enjoying it. It's nice to do something different and take on a bit of a challenge away from the usual resin cockpits and wheel-wells. Glad you like it. Andy
  9. I was liking this post right up to the moment I saw that last picture! Martian
  10. I have never heard heard of the yellow recognition markings extending beyond the tailplane undersides. BTW the photo I linked to appeared in Roger Freeman's book The RAF In WW2 In Colour by A&AP: when it came out, a book reviewer commented on the photograph as welcome confirmation of the reported use of yellow tailplane undersides on some Western Desert Beaufighters. Not sure I've heard the story anywhere else. No idea re nose camera fitting. Is the colour just fresh EDSG?
  11. Thats a beauty,well done.
  12. Hello,Martin- I've devoted my modelling time this evening replying to your splendid builds!πŸ˜€ This is a superb 'Fulcrum'. Great work indeed. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ All the best,Paul.
  13. Seems we still have to wair for the Saab 105 a bit.... Have the Classic Airframes Fiat CR.32 and IMAN Ro37 in our stash, but my dad is no fan of these kits, so he will not built them in the near future, also no helicopter fan, would have the Italeri Kiowa kit too with Printscale decals, one of the Jagdkommando birds would look cool. Maybe I can convince him to do a Beaver, have the Hobbycraft kit with Brent-Air-Decals
  14. Thanks a lot !! I can imagine.... I gave a chance to these new tool Airfix kits, so far I've completed this and Hurricane Mk I is being built since a while (http://www.makett.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=4273&start=10), but they are more troublesome than many short-run kits. Believe me, I was also close to do the same. If its not a WΓΌrger, probably it happens. I had another one in my stash. I sold it right after I've started to build this, asap .
  15. Beautifully faded - much more effective than pre-shading everything to death
  16. Cool camo, it's really coming along now!
  17. Bezels by Airscale you say? A fine company by all accounts.
  18. Any build of the older Airfix kits always hits the spot for me, and this one is lovely - great idea with the u/c as well, thanks for sharing it,
  19. You're both very close, very very very close ... Ciao
  20. Superb as always. Break a leg tomorrow.
  21. The actual aircraft is undergoing restoration in Australia, and I provided the color references to both the restorers and Iliad from a 1930s vintage collection of Berryloid color chips.

  22. Great to see them with the primer and some paint going on. Lovely stuff! Kind regards, Stix
  23. And me. That is still ne of my favourite kits, but I've never had the Revell or Trumpeter kits. I've always preferred the look of the A-3J 3P over the earlier versions too.
  24. Today
  25. Hello again, Martin - My same praises for this fine 'Mirage' as for your 'Skyhawk' and 'Seahawk'. Beautifully built and finished modelling work. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ All the best, Paul.
  26. Hello again,Martin - I extend the same compliments to you on this beautiful 'Seahawk' build as for your 'Skyhawk'. Another fine testament to your skills. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ All the best,Paul.
