  1. 1/32 Tamiya F4U-1

    Great finish.
  2. Revell 1/700 HMS Kipling

    I have one in my stash plus a few add-on bits and pieces. You may have just encouraged me to move it closer to the top of the 'next project' list. Cheers

    Good question! The photo I used to model the wake shows only a little smoke coming from the stack. I wasn't going to try and replicate that and I don't do Photoshop Cheers!
  4. That is a really great model of one of my favourite 109 schemes. Smashing build and superbly finished.
  5. That is a brilliant rendition of one of my favourite aircraft. It brings back very fond memories of seeing them overflying my home when they were operating out of RAF Valley. Smashing build which has inspired me to build one myself! Cheers

    Thanks for the very positive feedback guys! Much appreciated. Cheers

    Cheers, Mike I know about the aircraft markings but as this was a quick build and finish using pretty much what was in the box I didn't want to go any extra expense in buying extra decals. The kit provided markings are quite well printed and include the rudder stripes but they stickers and just didn't look right when I tried out a couple. I did think about painting the red dot freehand but opted not to in the end.

    Completed most of the painting using Lifecolor paints. Detail painting now to be done.

    Lexington is now finished. I've posted some photos on the Maritime RFI Cheers
  10. This my Meng Models 1/700 USS Lexington. When I bought this I hadn't realized it was a snap-together kit but to be honest it builds very quickly into a reasonable model of this distinctive carrier. The model was built straight out of the box with little modification. I used the kit as a bit of a practice piece as I hadn't completed any naval subjects for a while. I can't comment on the accuracy of the kit or indeed my interpretation but I enjoyed the build and finishing. All the paints are Lifecolor and the only changes are the aircraft decals have been taken from a GMM set (the kit supplied marking are self-adhesive, nicely printed but a bit toy-like). Thanks for looking! Cheers

    Lovely clean finish. Great
  12. Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost T.3A

    Great looking model. I really like the finish you've achieved.
