  1. Hi everyone, Went down early to try and get the Air France Dreamliner, however it was freezing and grey til 10......... And it came in on the other Runway!!!! B787 F-HRBA London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Thankfully things improved rapidly and the rest of the day had some lovely light: B787 N811AB London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A350 ET-ATY London Heathrow 27.03.17-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A330 A9C-KB London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A340 RP-C3438 London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A350 A7-ALL London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B777 9K-AOD London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 EI-DSW London Heathrow 27.03.17-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B777 SU-GDP London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B787 G-VFAN London Heathrow 27.03.17-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 T7-MRD London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A380 A6-APG London Heathrow 27.03.17-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B777 A7-BAF London Heathrow 27.03.17-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr First day of Flybe operations into LHR i think DHC-8 G-ECOT London Heathrow 27.03.17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Bendy....

  2. Stunning build, great weathering, just looks spot on
  3. That's cool, would love something like that! Yeah I hope revell decide to do it as a 1:72 model too. May be tempted to do a 48 but really don't have the room for them
  4. Thank you all for your comments They're probably not as bad as i make out, but i would suggest getting some different decals if nothing else!!! I think it is, its the same as the mould as Revell one ive done before, and i get the feeling they all used the same parts
  5. Hi, Despite reading how bad the Tamiya F3 is, i still found myself picking one up due to stupidity/pig-headedness/nothing else on offer! I should have listened!! It starts off quite nicely, the cockpit goes together well, the wings, tail and other bits all do likewise. Then It came to putting the 2 fuselage halves together......UGH. There was about a millimetre overlapping on the top half either side, which meant tonnes of filling and sanding, which, in the end i just got fed up of and decided to leave it before i put into "flight mode" Then comes the decals. "Basic" would probably be building them up a bit too much, no RAF tail flash, very very pale colours on the roundels, and the most awkward ones i've ever dealt with trying to put on the aircraft so again a lot never made it! So in the end, i found some old xtradecal and very old airfix ones to finish it as i saw as "Maple 19" at RAF Coningsby in 1990. I was going to panel wash etc, but as there aren't really any panels of note to use, i just went for a bit of weathering on the tail!!!! I really do hope Revell/Airfix etc produce a new tooled Flickknife soon Anyway, enough of my troubles: Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292-9 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292-14 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292-10 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292-11 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Tamiya 1.72 Tornado F3 ZE292-4 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Im sure you guys could probably get some good results with it, but it certainly tested my patience!!!!! Jon
  6. Very nice! Loved the 104 in the grey/white colours. I remember as a kid I assumed as it was a navy plane that it must work off of an aircraft carrier!!!!
  7. Phabulous lovely clear finish, beautifully done
  8. Wouldn't want to see that coming towards you! Great diorama, love how you've done the sea, and stunning brick and missile
  9. Beautiful job on a difficult scheme! Love the detail with the pilot etc, looks fantastic
  10. Cracking work on what looks a difficult livery, both look superb in that scheme, well done
  11. Stunning job! The canopy and weapons look fantastic and great paint work
  12. Thanks guys
  13. Love it!!!!
  14. Looks right to me! Great build
  15. Wow! That looks fantastic! Great build beautifully presented
