  1. Trumpeter 1/16 Panzer IV type H

    Very impressive finish, especially in this large scale - some models this size end up looking like toys but you got yours spot on. Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  2. Great looking finish! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  3. M18 Hellcat

    Well it was worth the wait! Very well done - it turned out beautifully. Kind regards, Stix

    These Toon kits do look great. Well done. Kind regards, Stix

    That is very impressive! Very well done. Kind regards, Stix
  8. Thank you Simon and I'm looking forward to following your Firefly project. I got a bit of assembly done on mine today: I also got the last bits attached to the lower hull before I can paint it but nothing worth a photo. Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
  9. Impressive start with the painting John. Kind regards, Stix
  10. Revell MiG-31 1/72

    Great progress Valkyrie - looking good with the decals on. Well done. Kind regards, Stix
  11. Blitzbuild 2017 GB Chat

    Knowing the way you work Steve you could probably get a couple made in 6 hours!! Sound like a good plan Tony! That was going to be my question to John too! Really looking forward to the weekend. Kind regards, Stix
  12. Hi Dave and thank you very much for your very (too) kind comments - your Meteor turned out beautifully. The thing is I really enjoy making scenes for models but if I do them outside of a GB, where there isn't a deadline, I tend to try and, I think, overdo them so much so that, in a couple of cases, I've not finished them and lost interest. Making scenes for GBs usually means I work out ways of simplifying things so I get them done in time. Like Dave you are way too kind Craig but thank you. Seeing the things you produce, like the inside detailing on your current 'pencil' project I know you produce work of a higher standard! Hi Peter and thank you for your very kind comments. I'm afraid the trees are one of the compromises - I haven't got @Badder's skill or patience, let alone the time to make trees. The trees I use are ready made from Woodland Scenics 'Woodland Classics' range. The main scatter material is from Woodland Scenics again - mostly Blended Turf on this scene and all the tufts are from the Army Painter ranges. Hi Glynn - you are very kind as always! Hi John - you are very kind but are you sure you've not started on the wine already? Well..........over the past weekend I actually managed to this as finished as it's ever going to be! I have taken lots of photos which I will try and get posted in the relevant places over the next few days. This coming weekend Mrs PlaStix and I are going to have a go in the Blitzbuild GB - if you have the time make sure you take part - it was great fun last year. Kind regards, Stix
  13. Gloster Meteor 1/72 ++++FINISHED++++

    Well done Dave, that turned out beautifully! Kind regards, Stix
  14. Zvezda 1/72 IS-2

    Good to see your IS-2 Is underway and good luck when you get to the painting. Looking good so far and good idea with the replacement muzzle break. Kind regards, Stix
  15. Good to see another AFV build in this GB Simon. Looking forward to seeing it in progress. I haven't got this kit so may have to see about getting hold of one at some point. Kind regards, Stix
