  1. TIE/sk x1 "Striker"

    That looks really good Will! Love seeing you building your scenery, I might even try it one day... Maybe... Like everyone else has mentioned, I like the two Space-Rays, clever touch that. I also preferred the Base before you ripped the paint off, but I also understand why it was done. Not sold on the Tie Strikers design, dunno why. Is there a cockpit in the back? Looks likes a canopy is there? looking forward to the others Kind Regards, Dazz
  2. F-15E, 1/144 Revell

    That's looking fantastic Rade! Sorry I didn't warn you about the ejector marks in the intakes. I had completely forgotten about them. Revell instructions do leave a lot to be desired sometimes. I should continue with mine soon. Kind Regards, Dazz
  3. 1/100 │ MS-06K Zaku Cannon

    Ouch.... I'm not that bad am I? lol It does kinda look Zaku I-ey but I know where to look for the differences in the suits. The main ones that *usually* give it away is that there is no horizontal strip on the mono-eye and the chest piece is, well full and angular compared to a curvey Zaku I (put an MS-05 and MS-06 side by side and you will see what I mean). Was looking at the new HG release for the Zaku Cannon... very tempted Love the camo Tolga, must have been a real pain to have masked up? I do like the "bunny ears", however only one line of suits should have them, the TR line of Gundams, altho the TR-5 is a Gaplant... hhmm... Tolga, can you stop building MG kits please? I am eyeing up so many of them and it's pulling me away from the HG/RG's lol Kind Regards, Dazz
  4. 1/100 ZGMF-X12A Gundam Testament

    Oo I like it, it's got a Blitz/Gold Frame/Gouf Ignited feel about it. I keep on seeing this kit on a well known auction site. Is this a new kit or something? Looking very good however Rock, what was the fleck you used for the metallics? Kind Regards, Dazz
  5. mechanicore

    I've seen this advertised, apparently it's going to cost around $180 to ship alone... What's it made out?! The blood and tears of a unicorn?! The best thing about this however is the Deep Striker... I would love to own that... Not getting one then Tim? Kind Regards, Dazz
  6. Hobby Boss 1/72 F-5E

    I was thinking the same thing! At first I thought the Javelin was 1/48 but noticed the canopy size. It was a massive bugger or was the F-5 really tiny?! I'll be watching this with interest LostCosmonaut, I got one of these kits in my stash so will be interested how it comes out. Kind Regards, Dazz
  7. Looking very good there! Your son has painted the pilot better than I ever could! That's why I never include them... Not because I'm lazy... Honest! I'll be keeping an eye on this build, looking forward to what your son can build. Hopefully it won't be the last?! Silly thing, but it seems a little impersonal referring to your son as "your son", Wafu. I do apologise if it sounds rude, I haven't seen any names mentioned, that's why I've not used one. It was around his age that I first saw the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight over my house on their way to the Southend Air Show (way back when). I remember talking to the Firefighter (chap called Andy - RIP Mate) who lived down my street about them and he told me they where the Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane. He told me all about the Hurricane and that's when I had found one of my favourite aircraft. That's one of the earliest memories I have. I hope you spark an keen interest in your Son Wafu, much like Andy did with me. Kind Regards, Dazz
  8. 1/100 │ MS-06K Zaku Cannon

    Wait until you get to the MSV suits, theres loads of weird and wonderful suits, then you have the Ver. Ka ones which ups the ante a bit too. Will be watching this one with interest Tolga. Kind Regards, Dazz
  9. 1/100 ZGMF-X12A Gundam Testament

    Aahh, I did always wonder how they got away with it, but that kinda does make sense. I also saw this model advertised on SamuelDecal this morning... think it's trying to tell me something! Looking good, apparently this Gundam was derived from the Dreadnought Gundam... I dont see how... but it does look good. I always prefered the Justice or Cgue DEEP Arms (don't ask why). I do have a soft spot for the SEED designs. Kind Regards, Dazz
  10. More 1/144 Eagles

    So I done some more work on the Eagles, I know I keep on calling these "F-15A's" but they will be "F-15J's"... just ignore me. I found an old source of reference I had forgotten about. Quite a few reference pictures in there and it's for the J model, so quids in for me. Plus I get to look at the centre-fold of Ren Ishikawa, a very pretty lady. So like I said I have done some more work on the cockpits. I started work on the F-15E cockpit as well, but that isn't a priority right now. I mixed up some paint to what I thought looked right for the IP and it looks more Soviet era than JASDF... I'll see what I can do about toning it down at a later date. The buttons and such I had to do with a sharpened cocktail stick and dab the paint on. Best I can do, I might revisit these later. See what you think below. I need to put a wash into the back compartment, doubt you'll see any of it after the canopy goes on however. Oh and yes, I do own massive clothes pegs Feedback as always is welcomed, good or bad. Kind Regards, Dazz
  11. More 1/144 Eagles

    You're welcome azureglo. It is a very nice video, there is a few of these videos floating about, you just have to know where to look. I've just had a thought, I have a reference book on the F-15J. Yay! Have you ever heard of the Israeli F-15 that lost its starboard wing in a collision? The Japanese do have some interesting colour schemes. I know exactly what you mean about the Raptor/Lightening. However the JMSDF versions look good! Thank you for the vote of confidence, but I wouldn't call myself a "1/144 specialist", however I would call myself a "glutton for punishment!" lol 😁. Oh aye, I know of Ant Sized Man, you've probably seen my name crop up on his blog a few times. I know that Ian stopped making Gundams and 1/144 models a few years back and went into OO gauge trains, least that's what his blog suggests. I've not checked it in a while however. I did do some more work today, however I also burned my right hand so the work isn't upto my standards (I tried), so no pictures until I'm happy with the work. I've started work on a Strike Eagle too Kind Regards, Dazz
  12. 1/100 ZGMF-X12A Gundam Testament

    Oo... very nice, also not a Gundam I am aware off... which is very rare! I know it's from Gundam SEED because of the ZGMF (which means it's a ZAFT suit... well originally), the back pack is very Justicey, however the rest of the kit's design I am not familiar with. I guess it could be a suit that appears on one the many Astray MSV spinoffs? I got the RG Justice to built yet myself... One of these days I will look into the Chinese kits as I have heard and seen many good things about them, however my loyalties do lie with Bandai, yeah I am a sucker I know! Looking forward to more Rock Kind Regards, Dazz
  13. Revell 1/144 Apache 64-D double build

    I have seen the Mavericks from Shelf Oddities and where put off, I dont think they'd last long with me. I do have many Mavericks from different manufactures in my stash, think the best ones is probably the ones you get in the Revell 1/144 F-18D or the A-10. Sidewinders are pretty good from anywhere really, except the early Dragon kits, avoid them like the plague! Thank you for the Retrokit link, for some reason I can't order from them! I've bought loads of bits from them before, however the website now says that they can't ship to me... I'm waiting on the webmaster to get back to me on that one. It would be great to have second refusal on those tanks if possible? Of course I will pay shipping and what-have-not. Kind Regards, Dazz
  14. More 1/144 Eagles

    Thank you Holger, I usually get these decals when they are released from HLJ, they only cost £4-ish new so it's always a bargain. I do like the aggressor colours, however it's all the stencils that put me off, even in 1/72 they'd be a pain let alone 1/144! We shall see what happens and how well I do with the others Hey azureglo, I wasn't planning to, but you have a PM inbound. That's a great video btw, however it looks likes it's been slowed down a little bit?? I dunno... I think the decal set i have for the aggressors are the same ones as the 1/72 set, just twice as big, probably more stencils as well. I look forward to seeing that built So, I've done some work today, still waiting for the shelf oddities stuff to turn up however. I've done some work on both the F-15A's. Please see below... The top half has the bits I need to remove in black, the bottom half has had it's bits removed. Sorry for the crappy picture, this is under magnification in low light for something that is no bigger than 2.5 inches in real life. So after an hour or so of cutting/sanding/test fitting I was left with the below. The grey one was the second one I done, therefore a better fit all around. I am hoping that the canopies will hide most of the holes, however I will use some filler on them. Hopefully I can get some paint on these tomorrow. Feed back as always is gratefully accepted. Kind Regards, Dazz
  15. That is fantastic Murdo! I built the Tempest a while ago, so I know the pain you had to go through building this kit. The home made decals are top quality too. very nice Kind Regards, Dazz
