  1. SKY1

    Picked up UNCL's model of SKY1 from Gerry Anderson's UFO, his first live action show. For anyone who may not know, SKY1 is a submarine launched interceptor used to take on any UFOs that get into the earth's atmosphere. UNCL's kit is cast in resin, with a vacform canopy There is also a small decal sheet, and a CD with reference photos of the studio model. The kit is scaled at 1:48th, and is a sizeable lump of resin! Have been after on of these for ages, and I managed to get one yesterday at Model Kraft. Thanks for looking Angelo.
  2. Dirty Canopies

    Spray on glass cleaner! Decant some into a container and apply with cotton buds. Brings transparencies up as good as new, and it can be used to clean the whole model. Never noticed any interaction with paint cotes.
  3. Heinkel He219 A-0

    Thank you all very much! Really glad you like her
  4. Heinkel He219 A-0

    Thank you. Yes they are. I thinned the paint right down to a milk like consistency then turned the compressor down to 15psi, and practiced loads on card before I slowly started. It took about an hour and a bit to do the mottles. The base colour was sealed with an acrylic varnish before the mottles were added. As I used Xtracolor enamels, if there were any "OOPS" moments, it could be cleaned with a cotton bud and thinners.
  5. Impressive Hun! Great finish, especially the heat staining
  6. Heinkel He219 A-0

    Yes it is. Thanks everybody for all your comments, greatly appreciated😀
  7. Hello! This is Revell's re-issue of their Heinkel HE219, with new parts to make it as the earlier A-0. Built virtually out of the box, except for some Eduard etched seat belts. I used Xtracolor enamels for the camouflage. Straight forward kit, no real pitfalls, but it needs a lot of nose weight to keep it off it's tail! Thanks for looking, Angelo
  8. Airfix Short Stirling

    Superb! I've always liked the Airfix Stirling, the box art has a lot to do with it! You have done an outstanding piece of modelling there😀
  9. WOW! If you have been able to wrestle the FM Halifax & Hampden into those superb looking models, then you sir are a Jedi of the modelling world! An incredibly excellent collection
