  1. BN Islander - Airfix 1/72

    Astonishing. I've seen them in action and they do battle harsh weather indeed. Got mine pending as well!
  2. Well done. I've always liked BCal aircrafts, specially the Dc-10, and the bus looks the part as well.
  3. F-14 Tomcat 1:48 Italeri

    Sweet! I was wondering about getting rid of mine, yours is telling me not to.
  4. 1:72 Fujimi BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1

    Simply astonishing
  5. @Colin @ Freightdog Models Will you have the -200? I just love the 146
  6. Great as usual Alex! The nose is absolutely convincing, you tackled it superbly.
  7. Tamiya 1/48th Tomcat. VF-32

    Gorgeous! I needed a break in the dirty-cat-town. Most of the time I like them this way, congratulations!
  8. Hi again, now with this quite unique aircraft. I liked so much the way it looked at Auckland I knew I had to build one someday. Gio Decals, which were a nightmare, and Model Master enamels. I did my best with the decals but at some stages I must confess I almost quit. Glad I managed to get through the storm though. Thanks! Ignacio
  9. Great work! ant advice you can give us about rigging with Ezline? I am midway in the nightmare of the same thing with a Moth
  10. Still digging in my collection now I bring you one of our service stars: the A340. They arrived in 2000 and were retired this year from service. 15 years flying to Madrid-Frankfurt, Auckland-Sydney, Los Angeles, a few times to Easter Island-Tahiti and even once to the Falkland Islands. I was lucky enough to fly it for 3 years and I am deeply proud of it. I did try to make her justice as much as I could. Real aircraft paint matched to Automotive paints, Gio decals, tail hand masked and painted. Thanks for looking. Part of the family in scale:
  11. Thanks Rod and yes Trojan, out of the box. Just scratched the rectangular satcom antena on forward top.
  12. Grest looking Hurricane, congratulations!. And nice modification to the aerial as well. About the paints, I had the same problems and surprinsingly there was not as much info on the internet as I hoped, but did learn one thing: never thin with isopropyl alcohol. It is too strong and forms a goo that takes too much time to clean afterwards. In fact, it is always messy to clean. Some people are having good results with tamiya's thinner and some other with glassex (have not tried this one yet). This is something I'd like to resolve as the colours look accurate at least, can't they be that bad, do they?
  13. 1/144 East African Super VC10

    Excellent work, I am definitely getting one of these. I also like a lot the african yellow colors, haven't paid attention to those airlines before.
  14. Oh thanks for the heads-up. Modellers concerning, the only difference between the two types was the length of the fuselage?
  15. What an elegant aircraft, makes me wanna go get mine and build it. Will be difficult to decide between Ba, Raf, Boac and Bcal (there was this was one that had severe turbulence over the Andes and flew with a cracked spar back home without being noticed iirc). http://www.british-caledonian.com/BCal_ASIX_Andes.html As you can see, a very inspiring build indeed! Great work, congratulations.
  16. Boy, do these choppers have attitude! Which kit did you use for the 1/48? I have the Italeri Mh-60K hoping to be finished half as yours!
  17. 1/144 DC-10 Air New Zealand

    Oh I love the Dc-10, my father flew them, and some were actually ANZ's leased to LanChile. Great job you made with this one! I am very sorry for your loss Richard. I am very aware indeed that for NZers the accident is still a current topic until this day. I am sure Jessica was not meaning to hurt anybody.
  18. Great job! I guess that kit is the italeri mould
  19. Great build, congratulations. Thanks for the heads up on how to treat heavy glue decals as well. I was about to ask if that was southern California, looks nice!. Would you showing us your collection? It looks interesting even blurred in the pics, I couldn't stop noticing it.
  20. What a nice work Ian, congratulations. It is a well balanced work, and a very convincing finish you achieved, I was stunned by the metal as well. I have some of these kits in my stash, they kinda frighten me as I've never tackled a kit of that type and to spoil it would be expensive. Do you have any advice for a rookie on these kits? I am also afraid of the landing gear breaking down under the weight. My father flew the 707 among any other airliner I dream to just see live today, not to say fly. I guess I was born in the wrong era.
