  1. What a great project! I built the oft-maligned MPM kit in the Bomber Command GB a while back and had a great time with it. I was very surprised by how little of the interior you can see through those enormous windows along the side. Looking at the photos of the real thing (and nearly an hour seems to have passed somewhere in the video section...), it looks like the grey used for the codes early in the war did vary considerably in shade when compared to the white of the roundels. Regards, Adrian
  2. AMT XB70 Valkyrie 1/72

    Wow! The shot next to the Vulcan is very telling. Super work on the construction and finish too. Regards, Adrian
  3. Nice model! The view from the rear shows off the jet exhaust detailing really well too, you don't often get to see that aspect. Oh, and I insist on moving wings! Regards, Adrian
  4. Simply gorgeous. I'm glad you persevered with this, it's a wonderful result. Regards, Adrian
  5. Airfix (old) Phantom

    Thanks guys! I must admit that when the big red decal got settled there was an audible "ahhhh..." Regards, Adrian
  6. 'Greif' by name, Greif by nature!

    Cracking paint job! Doing the mottle first makes a lot of sense, and it's a really nice and even mottle for 1/72 (or indeed any scale). The splinters look great too. You have well and truly updated this old kit. Looking forward to the detailing. I do wonder how the guys who sprayed mottle on the real thing got it so even - it's hard enough doing even mottles over a model the size of your hand, let alone something 60-odd feet long! Regards, Adrian
  7. Eye in the Sky

    Well that's a bit different! I'm guessing from comparison with the figure that the real thing has about a 10 foot wingspan? Multicoloured sprues too, just like Matchbox from days of yore. Regards, Adrian
  8. Looks terrific! There, you see, you can enjoy life after having children! Regards, Adrian

    Great show! I turned up at around 0920 (0630 start from South London and a lovely drive up in the rain!). My Google Maps got me to skip the jam by turning off and parking in the car park next to Asda, a five minute walk away. The IPMS queue did go across the car park and people were complaining, but it didn't seem to take too long to me! I had a great time - people are always happy to talk about the models they have brought along, as long as you don't try to start the conversation by telling them it's the wrong colour! I managed to tear myself away from the USAF display and make it to the Brum stand. It was lovely to meet the forumeers in the flesh. I only managed to grab one picture: I missed Stew on the Airscale stand, only found out when I got home and checked the forum. I took a random selection of pictures, based mostly on whether I could get in a position to take one. Here is a random subset of them - sorry for not having more information about each one... The Airfix Wellington in the flesh: The Motor Museum in Miniature display. Always stop for a chat, lovely people: A brilliant and beautifully animated WWI display: A whole stand devoted to album and single puns: Tom Probert on the left and his massive Shackleton on the right. Two more years to go, apparently! The USAF display. Highly imposing, and featuring the YB60 that was recently in RFI: On to the competition. A vast range of sizes for the ships competition, ranging from a 1/35 ship with loads of detail, to some tiny models that would fit in the palm of your hand, also with loads of detail: Helicopters seemed a bit "neglected": A Princess! A cutaway Horten: Scratch built Fairey Delta 2 with litho plate skinning. Beautiful! According to the builder, the undercarriage steers and has working suspension: Lots of varied figures. For some reason this one caught my eye... A wonderfully intricate Sputnik 1 launch: What happens when your Rumpler gets Rumpled: With International Rescue to save the day! Regards, Adrian

    Birmingham/West Mids table 2pm today looks like the place to be...
  12. SMW 2017 Telford 11th & 12th November

    Wow...It's TODAY!! Hope to meet some of you there this time around. Regards, Adrian
  13. Airfix (old) Phantom

    Well I had to build the old Phantom so I could say "Oh no, I've just finished a Phantom and look what Airfix have done now!" If they have a pile of new Airfix Phantom boxes at Telford this weekend I expect to see a lot of happy faces... I need to get my old Airfix Mitchell built pretty sharpish too! Happy days. Regards, Adrian
  14. Wow! I caught the start of the WIP and then lost track. Amazing work on a bold project! I will certainly be round to have a look in hall 3 - it should be easy to find! Regards, Adrian
  15. Airfix (old) Phantom

    Thanks for all the kind comments! I hope we can all kindle fond memories of building a state-of-the-art all-new Airfix Phantom! Regards, Adrian Erm, I have a small confession to make...
