  1. PK-401 Heinkel He 115 3-Colour Kit 'Bare' Build

    The unpainted Heinkel looks fantastic! It will be great to see the contrast with a fully painted example. Are both of these being presented as one gallery entry or two? Brilliant work so far, keep it going, Cheers Greg 😉
  2. BAC Lightning.

    It's a good one Steve, I build this one not so long ago. The kit instructions blurb at the front should allude to which mark it is. Cheers Greg
  3. Torbeau Beaufighter

    Thanks guys much appreciated 😁 Cheers Greg
  4. Torbeau Beaufighter

    Well thats another one done. Great kit the Matchbox Beau, literally falls together, and looks the part when finished. Theres a few inaccuracies such as the undersized engines but i am happy with it. I weathered this one a bit more as it represents a Dallachy Beaufughter from the Moray/Banff Strike Wing and these birds suffered from the harsh winter conditions there in 1944/45. Check out the huge pilot figure from the Revell aircrew set. He fair fills the empty cockpit!! IMG_2589 by G DSC, on Flickr And the finished model.....

  8. Torbeau Beaufighter

    Hi Folks, Here is my latest project for the GB The Beaufighter TFX. One of my Fave Matchbox kits, which i no doubt mangled back in my youth!

IMG_2581 by G DSC, on Flickr IMG_2587 by G DSC, on Flickr Paint going on... IMG_2588 by G DSC, on Flickr And thats where i am as of tonight. Great little kit, which has been a joy to build.

    Powerage by AC/DC. RIP Malcolm Young. One of the greats in my book. Greg
  12. Matchbox II GB Chat

    I have to say how much I am enjoying this GB There's bags of enthusiasm about and lots of variations, which makes for a lot of interest. It's also the first time I have managed more than two builds. Well done to everyone, and there's still plenty of time to get more in! Cheers Greg
  13. Stringbag theory.XXXXfinishedXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Looks great Steve. I like it. I like it a lot! Cheers Greg
  14. PK-23 Hawker Tempest Mk.VI (F.6)

    Excellent work Dave, Well done All the extras and the careful finishing is making all the difference with this build. I look forward to the next update. Cheers Greg
  15. Douglas A-20G Havoc

    And here it is -FINISHED... IMG_2585 by G DSC, on Flickr So thats build number 3 completed. A good kit but not as easy as the 110. The engine cowlings did not fit cleanly and required a bit of fettling to place. I can see why many like this particular Matchbox model as it certainly looks like a Havoc when built up. Well done again to Matchbox for the transfers which went on great. What to do next......? Thanks for looking Cheers Greg
