  1. Polish MiG-29 (Now finished)

    Hi Jabba You've got a great looking model there - congratulations I'm still working on my F-15s but WILL get back to my MiG-29 "Hero" soon Mike
  2. Nowhere 2 Hide 89-0472 *Back on track*

    This build is now seriously behind schedule, so am going to concentrate on "Twin Towers" over the rest of the week. Airframe is only partially painted (underside still to do) and weapons are a work in progress but here's a look at them anyway
  3. 1/48 Revell F-15E "Never Forget" *Now "Twin Towers"*

    Progress has been slow and I'll be struggling to meet Sunday's deadline but...... Airframe is now painted Cans, seats and wheels ready Underwingy things (not fully decalled yet)
  4. 1/32 F-16 Double Bill!

    Impressive work again
  5. Hobby Boss 1/48 Su-27 Ukrainian Digital

    Hopefully you'll be able to get a replacement in time to meet the deadline - given that the upper fuselage is packed separately by hand, one wonders how this ever got past quality control. I've also got the Foxbot decals and masks for this and the 27-UB but need to get a bit further with mt Eagles before committing to this group build.
  6. 1/48 Revell F-15E "Never Forget" *Now "Twin Towers"*

    This is one of the loads I'm going to use http://www.f-15e.info/joomla/en/weapons/loadout-configurations/125-enduring-freedom
  7. Italeri 1/72 Su27D Sea Flanker - COMPLETED

    Thanks for the "how to do it" - will try it
  8. 1/48 Revell F-15E "Never Forget" *Now "Twin Towers"*

    Thanks, am basing my loadouts on suggestions from the F-15E info website. I particularly like the idea of asymmetric loads.

    Do you literally use Tippex? How easily does it smooth?
  10. Nowhere 2 Hide 89-0472 *Back on track*

    A few photos as promised the wing joint seams still need some tidying up! the "office" a selection of weapons for both builds - painting of these still in progress
  11. 1/48 Revell F-15E "Never Forget" *Now "Twin Towers"*

    Currently working on HUD and canopy framing (adding details and painting). In the meantime, some photos
  12. 1/48 Revell F-15E "Never Forget" *Now "Twin Towers"*

    This one is also progressing and is ready for the HUD to be fitted before painting. Have decided to model 87-0208 "Twin Towers" but not 100% sure which squadron it was allocated to when it had this nose art. The Print Scale decal sheet lists it as belonging to 391st Bold Tigers (MO) but the actual decals are for 336th Rocketeers (SJ). According to the F-15Einfo website it was only at Mountain Home but I can find photos on the net where it has the Seymour Johnson code!? Definitive photos of which unit it flew with whilst wearing the nose art are elusive. I've also been working on a mixed bag of weapons for this and "Nowhere to Hide" - will post photos tomorrow.
  13. Nowhere 2 Hide 89-0472 *Back on track*

    Will update with photos tomorrow but this build is now progressing..... Decided to take the all the CFT pylons from my F-15C MISP kit; airframe is now complete and primed, so just needs the HUD fitting before masking the canopies and thinking about the painting stage.
  14. Flanker STGB chat

    Well, I will admit that I was looking forward to this one - perhaps do a few sub assemblies but stay within 25% rule meanwhile??
