  1. 1:72 Matchbox A-10A - NOT straight from the box!

    heh heh, like the style. Lovely work so far.
  2. Fine work as ever Johnny and good save on the camera window. You just need to scratch build the camera now.... Oh and have a word with Tony (The Baron), I'm sure he can scratch build you some 1/48 film....
  3. Albatross, Get Your Albatross Here!

    Nice start Martian and a fine subject. I'm glad you swiftly dismissed this nonsense. Any thoughts to the finish? Were they NMF or painted silver? It seems to be crying out for an NMF to be honest.
  4. D.H. 83 Fox Moth, half scratch

    As Martian says, it's hard not to be taken in by this build.
  5. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Brilliant mate. Wonderful and useful skills and techniques on display: miniaturisation, human cloning, levitation, alchemy oh and the vac-forming, soldering and painting is okay too...
  6. Lovely work mate. Shows what can be done with these old Matchbox kits - looks like a new tooling.
  7. Catching Pictures in the Air

    The crew are looking superb, almost like 1/72 scale cloned humans... but erm... remind me never to upset you gulp...tip toeing carefully out the room hoping I won't be seen...
  8. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Tony I think a quote from Howard Carter is appropriate: "...as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold - everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment - an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things." Yeh but the little 1/72 scale humans that you've cloned will be able to read em ok.
  9. Stirling work....okay I'll get my but I couldn't resist it. Seriously fine modelling and lovely scratch work. Good techniques on display too.
  10. Hi Tomoshenko

    I was following your Fury posting but the images seem to have disappeared.

    Any chance you can fix the links for me and the other BM's who are suddenly building a spate of Fury's

     

    Thanks

      Thanks for the compliment Colin. There is some problems with Postimage at the moment - other BMers are experiencing problems. If they don't fix it in a couple of days I will re-establish the photos.

      Hi

      Many thanks for your reply. I was a photobucket victim as well so know the feeling. 

      Your Fury is a fantastic piece of work which deserves to be seen.

      Thanks Colin 

  11. Navy-ating Bucc's fizzing nicely

    Pictures fine Bill. Could be cos of a solar conjunction oh tentacle one. Give it a while and Earth should come around the other side of the sun. If still no pictures check for local sand storms. Bit nasty in your neck of the woods this time of year. That's the spirit, can't keep a good man down.
  12. Mil Mi-24 Hind - Revell 1/72

    Look on the good side Ced, maybe you and Bill can start up a stencil self-help group when Bill comes to putting the transfers on his Phantom
  13. To be honest I’m just glad to get my mits on a half decent Sea Vixenish looking kit given what’s on offer, hint hint Airfix! The kit does have some resin bits no bobs, not to say that should be the judge of things, but I reckon it’s the basis to knock out something respectable…to be continued... Thanks for the link Bill....gulp wot have I let myself in for.... Okay okay I confess Bill didn’t make me buy it, but but I’m still blaming Bill cos all his Navyation builds lead me on see officer, so it is kind of in a way sort of Bill’s fault officer cos if he hadn't built all the wonderful Naval stuff I wouldn't have bought it.... Anyroad on the subject of dodgy kits, or more to the point mouldings, there are quite a few flaws on this kit which I haven’t really talked about until now. There are a few imperfections on the fuselage, one or two I can live with, but on assembling the tail section last night I came across these: I jest not they look a lot worse in real life. Now I can handle seam and gap filling, joining persuasion, dodgy fits, kit bashing and the other stuff which is afterall modelling. But this I feel is poor form on a new tool. There's quite a few of them on various parts of the kit. Clearly issues with the moulding. It can be put right quite easily, but not the point I feel. Anyroad enough of my whinging. A little update. I embellished the wing lights by drilling out the bulbs and gluing foil to the back. Really easy peasy 5 minute job, but gives a nice little impression of proper lights. And here is the flipside. Yes it is beginning to look like a Lanc afterall. Note pre-chopped bits of sprue bits in the plastic lid on the right in readiness for liquid cement for the manufacture of some fresh gloop. It makes a change to be actually gluing plastic together. You know I think I could quite get into this…
  14. 1/72 RAF Walrus from Matchbox/Revell kit

    Lovely work. Quite an impressive finish I must say. Good job on the rigging. I love that sort of improvisation. Humbrol enamels too. Like the style
  15. Camo looks good Ced. Surprised with the nose cone masking technique. Thought you'd have sourced some rare and specialised thingybob wotsit from evilbay. There again, Otoscopes... why am I not surprised.
