    Hey Roger Lookin' good buddy
  2. 1/48 Westland Lysander Mk III

    Thanks CED - I was looking for that earlier and couldn't find it Hey Tomo - Glad to have aboard mate. I was looking through Youtube and found this 3 part build of the Eduard Lizzie... ..Watch it muted and its quite informative.
  3. 1/48 Westland Lysander Mk III

    I knew I’d seen another Lysander somewhere....thanks for the reminder πŸ˜€ Hey CC - Yes the Eduard kit is a Gavia repop and glad to have you along. I’m not too sure which one I’ll do yet. Sorry gents I don’t have any progress pictures for you even though I have spent a few hours on it today - there really isn’t anything to show. I’m off up country tomorrow so I wont be doing any modelling for a little while. Cheers Iain

    Morning Chris Cheers mate - I'm going to make a proper start after we've been for a spot of breakfast down Perranporth and I've done my household chores (Boo!) Iain
  5. 1/48 Westland Lysander Mk III

    Right on! There is something quintessentially British about a Lysander - I just hope I can do it justice? Welcome aboard sir! I'm all over it! Good man - its not a bad little kit, not much to it and the fit seems pretty good...not that I've done much yet Cheers all Iain
  6. 1/48 Westland Lysander Mk III

    Gentlemen you are both more than welcome πŸ‘πŸ˜€
  7. Hi everyone For my next project I’ll be building Eduards 1/48 Lysander Mk III. ...This one will be OOB as you get everything that you need in the box. The only change I’ll probably make is to redo the Sutton Harness in tape as I really don’t like the metal alternatives. Cheers Iain
  8. Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant.

    Hey Andy - Thanks for the info mate, you can't say that this site isn't a wealth of information! Hey Phil - Ta very much, I apprechiate it! Hi Bryan - Thank you Hi Neil - Thanks mate. Iain
  9. Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant.

    Hey Andy - Thanks mate and I have changed it to 264 Sqn (typo) Hey Jan - much appreciated bud Hey serial - many thanks mate - synchronised with the prop? Now that would be a thing! I think there was limiter that stopped the guns from being fired when they were pointed aft or fully forward (but I could be wrong - I usually am!) Iain

    Nice! Well done sir! Iain

    Hi Djordje - Thanks for the comments. I'm quiet happy with how the black turned out, its one of those colours that you can really go to town on with regards to weathering. Hi Vinnie - Thank you sir. Tony - Cheers mate and I'm sure that once you've worked your magic it will be a stunner too! Hey Bob - Thank you much appreciated! Thank you!
  12. The link to the RFI. Cheers! Iain
  13. Hi everyone Here is my Boulton Paul Defiant, 264 Sqn, Royal Air Force Station Biggin Hill circa 1941. National insignia, fin flash and codes were painted on only the Tail number, kill markings and Red hand of Ulster elbelm are decals. Cheers Iain
  14. Cheers bud πŸ‘ Hey Johnny thanks mate Afternoon John many thanks mate πŸ˜€
  15. Thanks mate - I just have a little more to do around the antennas, add the wire and that will be that πŸ˜€ Hey Martian - thank you πŸ‘ Hi Mackem - thank you for your kind words, I appreciate it πŸ‘ Hey James - yeah spraying on the markings makes a real difference and it's so easy to do and as an added bonus once dried you can handle the model, mask over them and generally abuse them without any fear of them coming away 😎 Well the Defiant is 99.5% finished just a little more weathering and the antenna wire to go, do hopefully it will be in the RFI tomorrow 🀞 Cheers all Iain
