  1. I got my mojo back! The last kit I produced (new Airfix 1/72 Wildcat) was at the start of the year. I since got married, went on honeymoon and got a promotion at work Coming back to modelling, I just didn't have the motivation to start a build. I did however try to build an Arii Cesna 172 in order to get my mojo back, but it did the opposite and destroyed it. Anyway when I finished that kit with all it's white paint, I felt like a nice camo finish build could get me motivated. I've had this kit in the stash for a while, and decided to build it. The Airfix IX isn't the best IX there is, but it builds nice, and even though there are no cockpit or wheel well details, I decided to build OOB - with the exception of a canopy mirror scavenged from my spares box, foil seat belts and a custom underwing aerial. I brush painted the kit with Humbrol acrylics, and sprayed gloss followed by matt Tamiya TS-80. Anyway, hope you like looking at some new pics of a much-before-seen subject. Cheers Jimmy

  14. Hi everyone. This is either very stupid, or it could be a hit. What about a 1/72 Group Build? Anything goes, as long as it is in 1/72 scale. It would be nice to see a 1/72 build "win" a GB, and with this proposal it's guaranteed to happen! Any takers? Cheers Jimmy EDIT 2017-02-03 I changed the thread title to "Small Scale Group Build" because it's much more inclusive than 1/72, which is mostly aircraft. EDIT 2017-02-06 Just to make the rules clear, "small scale" in this scenario is 1:50 or smaller. Time to bring our those big (although small in scale) naval vessels! Participants 1. JimmyZ 2.
