  1. Once this thread was underway I grabbed a HB 'Cat and guess what scheme took my fancy......Yeah, that VF-33 scheme on the old Microscale decal sheet! Unfortunately my progress is disgustingly slow in comparison to yours so there's a fair chance you may still complete that before I do. Top notch work Sir, we're loving it, dig deep and keep these beauties coming. Eng
  2. Loving this! That paint job is outstanding. Eng
  3. Said it before and I'll say it again this thread just keeps on giving, absolutely superior workmanship. I've gotta hand it to you Tony, your patience for adjusting colour schemes and repairing/blending decals is mighty impressive. I'm already slightly envious of your collection of 'Cats and yet there's more to come! Beautiful work, Eng
  4. 1/32 Tornado F3

    Nice work, this is gonna be superb! Great choice of aircraft too, what squadron and markings are you going for? I see you have a huge array of reference material but I can highly recommend the following book, a massive selection of images and info on all aspects of the F.3:- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tornado-F3-Years-Air-Defence/dp/0951265652 Eng
  5. 1/48 Eduard Harrier GR.7/9

    Nice work so far. Take your time with the assembly of the nose to fuselage, particularly the panel just aft of the cockpit. This area can be a bit of a nuisance, have a read through some online builds for a bit of guidance here. Eng
  6. Beautiful, superb work. Eng
  7. Awesome! Loving the painting info, absolutely cracking results too. Looking forward to your next update Eng
  8. Wow, that's beautiful Eng
  9. This looks stunning, I was really tempted by one of these when it was released. How does it build up in terms of fit and quality of the detail? Very nice work, Eng
  10. 1/32 Trumpeter A6-E INTRUDER

    Absolutely stunning work, the A-6 is tremendous but the figures, their positions, the painting, poses are what makes this extra special. Simply outstanding, Rgds, Eng
  11. Cracking build, what a real beaut! Eng
  12. Took a run down to Ayr for a walk along the beach as the forecast was better down the coast than at home. As we passed Prestwick my daughter asked what the big jet was by the old Polar Air hangar, a very quick glance and it appeared to be a DC-10 and I never thought anymore about it, being a Saturday the place was likely to be very quiet. Literally minutes after setting foot on the beach, Maddi again called over to me "Dad, what are those?". Two jets in a gentle left climbing turn...... Ohhh, yes!...... These 2 Super Hornets, one a VF-103 high vis bird, had passed through last week on their way to Paris I believe. I was gutted I'd heard nothing about it, so today I was over the moon to have a.) seen a Super Hornet, b.) seen fast jets on a Saturday and c.) seen a Jolly Rogers aircraft. They literally passed right over head in an orbit whilst said DC-10, the Omega tanker, also got airborne. The Hornets then headed out Northwest splitting up to formate on the DC-10 as they disappeared out of view. Fortunately my wife had her 150-600 lens on her camera and snapped the above pic's, so I can't take the credit for these. Also turned out to be an Armed Forces day event on at the Green so both the new Coastguard AW189 and the S-92 put in an appearance and performed nice low passes and orbits over the beach [URL=http://s128.photobucket.com/user/eng1170/media/825D6772-CB43-4987-B4CE-07D4DA879578_zps8dqlo0ma.jpg.html][/URL] All in all a great day out, apart from the sunburn I'm now sporting this evening! Eng
  13. Looks like you've got no issues there! What a stunning set of builds, beautifully painted and the photo's just finish off the whole thing quite nicely. Welcome back to the hobby. Eng
  14. Whoa, they're all appearing now, this is superb! Amazing that everyone's saying it's not actually that bad a build, just proves that reviews are only one individuals opinion. Lovely work and nice to see a different scheme too. Eng
  15. Painting a yellow finish

    Thank you chaps, I meant to say I'd be airbrushing, and my chosen ammo is Tamiya, which I have to admit are lovely to spray. My initial instinct was to go white then yellow, but interesting to hear Jamie suggest black basing. Will have a play on my test jet tomorrow. Thanks for for your help guys 👍 Eng
