  1. Too many Hobbyboss 1/72 F-14 Tomcats!

    Another great addition Tony, the finishes are just amazing.
  2. Seafire III 1/72

    Like Simon, I will now follow your example of adding spacers to the exhaust backing plates - that will definitely save some heartache later on. I also like the tabs you built for combining the fuselages and adding the cockpit frames. Luckily, I still have plenty of Sword Spitfire/Seafire kits to apply these tricks to, thanks Justin. The 'deep' rear canopy section of the Sword kit really threw my Mk 21 attempt for a loop, but I really like the shape of the Sword's wing. Greenshirt made an interesting comparison here if you haven't already seen it - it applies to Mk IX kits, but I think the other Sword Spitfire variants have similarly sized wings.
  3. Seafire III 1/72

    Looking forward to this one Justin.
  4. I love the weathering on this one, welcome to Britmodeller!
  5. 1/72 Mirage F1CR & F1CT

    They turned out beautiful Andrew.
  6. Ooooh, the Spitfire does look sharp in black.
  7. Glad to see you back at this one Tony, I do hope you get to feeling better soon.
  8. Polish MiG-29

    Yes it is, fantastic work on the decals Jabba.
  9. The thread title is no misnomer, super detailing indeed!
  10. Another great update Giorgio, fantastic work on the ailerons. I've been thinking about ways to simulate the often 'wavy' or dimpled surface of many aircraft in reference pics.
  11. An inspiring build for sure Justin, can't wait for the RFI.
  12. This is just great stuff Bill, what did you use to mask off the circle?
  13. Too many Hobbyboss 1/72 F-14 Tomcats!

    Dang Tony, that's impressive casting.
  14. Just catching up again Simon, a very pleasant thread indeed. I'm really looking forward to seeing the Med Sea Grey machines complete, what an intriguing scheme. I spent half of September road tripping with my dad and some of his college buddies to the Reno Air Races. The internet was spotty along the way, and I got way behind on my favorite BM threads (like this one!). It was well worth it though, we had a great time, and I saw my first Spitfire in flight - both demonstration and pylon racing. I managed to snap this pic of it being refueled. Note the exhaust stains on the otherwise pristine warbird, two races a day will do that I guess.
