  1. Stunning, and a really great finish too. The detail pops out really well too.
  2. Stunning build! I particularly like the detail inside the canopy.
  3. 1/48 Bobcat Models Yak-28P Firebar

    Stunning build. Looks great sat on the base.
  4. Avro Vulcan XH562

    Great build, the underside really catches my eye. Impressive stuff!
  5. What a great build, picked up loads of ideas from your videos.
  6. Kitty Hawk Su-22 Fitter

    She's a wee stunner Muzz, really nice crisp finish. I'm not overly keen on the extent of the pre-shading (maybe it's a consequence of the camera?), it seems like there is a little too much contrast. I think it probably is something to do with the camera/photo/lighting as I think the paint work is superb when viewed side on. Either way, it's a cracking model, bet it looks good on the shelf! Itching to start my Fitter now.
  7. Revell MiG-31 1/72

    Really coming alive now, looking forward to seeing this finished up
  8. 1/48 Bobcat Yak-28P Firebar

    The variation across the NMF is really convincing. She's looking really good, getting tempted to pick this kit up.
  9. 1/48 - MiG-25RB "Foxbat-B" by ICM - released

    What's better than one Foxbat...? I think I'll need to get one of these kits to go along with my RBT kit!
  10. 1/72 MiG-31 Foxhound *Complete*

    Yup, for sure! I got a little carried away. I got a better grasp of it when applying the greys, browns and beiges. Anyway, lesson learnt. Looking forward to trying it again on a different model. It's a fun effect, I like seeing it bring the model to life. It also reacted nicely with the MIG panel wash that I used, when the two mixed it result in quite an pleasing effect.
  11. 1/72 MiG-31 Foxhound *Complete*

    I wasn't too happy with the effect it gave me. It's only my second time using oils so I'm just testing out ideas. I went back over it with greys, browns and beiges to get some colour modulation across the grey. That gave me the effect I was looking for. Some of the original dot modulation work is still visible, but it is very subtle.
  12. Here's my 1/72 Trumpeter MiG-31 for the From Russia With Love GB. You can find the build thread here. First off, I know, I know, there are a couple of horrific seams! This build was completed as I was in the final months of my PhD, so for me it was something to take my mind of the thesis and help me relax. It was also a chance to test out @HATAKA OFFICIAL paints and some new oil based weathering techniques. Probably not the best way to kick off my first RFI, but I thought I would get the excuses out of the way early Anyway, to the build itself. I was impressed with the fit and how the kit went together with the one exception of the intakes. Struggled to get the seam sorted out, and in the end I decided not to go too far and lose too much detail. Painting went very well, brush painted @HATAKA OFFICIAL Red Line paints and was very pleased with the finish. I tried out some oil paints for the weathering and was satisfied with the outcome. For me, it looks like a MiG-31 and that's what matters! With any luck this will be one of my final brush painted kits! Sorry for the terrible pictures, but hope you enjoy nonetheless!

    That's a cracking looking Tomcat, itching to start mine now!
