  1. Awesome work Rich. And one of your fastest builds to date!
  2. Mark's 1/48 Monogram Tiffy

    Very nice work Mark. For an old kit it seems to be going together very nicely, and certainly looks like a Typhoon to me.
  3. 1/48 Kinetic Harrier T4

    Sorry for the lack of updates but with a very busy week at work I haven't had much time to do much modelling but I have made a small start. First up was some work on the ejector seats which come in about 5 pieces and look good enough to me to not be replaced by aftermarket ones and even have some brass seat belts, which I have yet to apply as I haven't fitted the seat cushions yet so here's how they look at the minute; The cockpit tub is quite nicely detailed and needs the rear wall and rudder pedals fitting which has been done, I need to get a coat of paint on it yet but here is a shot of it with the rear seat temporarily in place; I've also built up the device for the engine exhausts so that they can all move at the same time; The main wings have also been assembled which is just adding separate lower wing surfaces to the one piece upper wing, these fit quite well but do need a bit of cleaning up, here's the upper surfaces; And the lower surfaces in place; Now as nice as this kit is, and there is some very nice detailing, there are some parts which are more like a short run kit than a mainstream one such as the very large sprue gates and some very nasty ejection marks in visible places such inside the cockpit and on the intakes such as on this one; Not impossible to clean up but they really shouldn't be there. That's it for now, will try and get a bit more done during the week, even if it's only painting the main colour (medium grey?) on the cockpit interior. Thanks for looking in and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  4. Zebra's Mil Mi-10

    Excellent work Zebra, you have done a great job on the undercarriage and she looks great with a coat of primer on. Well done on proving that these "difficult" kits can be built.
  5. F-4C USAF s/n 64-0727

    Another great set of pictures Sven, and with the usual informative text. Please keep them coming!
  6. Most memorable film scenes..

    Catch-22, the opening scene with all the Mitchell's starting up and taking off. Kelly's Heroes, the scene where Kelly, Oddball and Big Joe approach the last Tiger to the western score. Actually the whole film. Apocalypse Now Gunship attack, starting off to the trooper playing "charge" on his bugle and then when they play "Ride of the Valkyries", awesome.
  7. Absolutey stunning work Stix. The weathering is fantastic, extremely realistic. The cable looks great after you have painted it, I hope it behaved whilst you were preparing it and fixing it in place.
  8. It's called "safe-T" cable, we use it in the aerospace industry for connecting bolts together and the joints on the ends of pipes to prevent them from coming loose.
  9. M4A3, CALLIOPE, 1/35

    Superb work Glynn, great attention to detail on the rocket frame and tubes. Good work on the motorbike too, looks like a nicely detailed kit.
  10. You are more than welcome Stix, I am very happy to have helped one of your excellent builds in a small way. And your build truly is excellent, the weathering is fantastic, very realistic and I have to agree with @Badder that this is your best build yet, and that is saying something!
  11. T-2C/E BUCKEYE - 1/72 Revell ex Matchbox PK42 #FINISHED#

    Looking excellent John, absolutely superb.
  12. As far as I'm aware Xtradecal don't do ANY foreign Hunters, at least not in 1/48, so this set will be very welcome indeed instead of the boring ones in the forthcoming Airfix kit.
  13. HS 1182 Hawk T.1 (Revell 1/72)

    Should be a good build Giorgio. Will you be building a Red Arrows machine or something else?
  14. 1/48 Kinetic Harrier T4

    Thanks David, yes I've seen the pictures on that site. I posted a request for info in the Cold War section and our fellow BM'ers have come through as usual and I now have the choice of around 3 or 4 a/c from 3 different squadrons! best get a move on and start building her, then I can decide which a/c to build later.
