  3. the kit is nicely and neatly finished but... what's with the nose intake? is it really like that in the kit?
  4. Tu-154M 1/144 by Zvezda

    excellent, just excellent love the subtle weathering
  5. Moebius 1/144 XD1 Discovery on its way

    yes, yes, yes!!!! moebius is becoming my favorite model company now
  6. AMT 1989 Batmobile

    beautiful model, really shows off all of your hard work actually, this is my favorite batmobile, I think it looks "effortlessly menacing"
  7. Love the movie, looove the Cat... will be watching with interest great work so far!
  8. If I didn't know it was a model, I would've thought I was watching stills from the movie... truly amazing work Enterprise in all her glory... still sends shivers down my spine
  9. Actor John Hurt has passed

    Such a great, versatile actor... he had one of most expressive eyes I have ever seen... he brought so many wonderful characters to life, but the one scene I will remember him most for is on the bridge of the nostromo in the opening of alien, when he says wearily, with a cigarette in his mouth; "plug us in"... he never says it, but you clearly see he is just so sick of his job
  10. Weight issues

    well, I use fishing weights. They come in different shapes and sizes, so it's easy to make them fit. Sometimes I use a table vice to shape the lead in a suitable form. For example, if I need to weight down a front end of a 1/72 Huey, I press the lead in a thin strip to place beneath the floor, and it fits nicely. To fix it in place, I use Bison 2k epoxy glue, or sometimes PVA wood glue. Also, if I need the lead to stay in place while the glue sets, I use just a really tiny dab of CA glue before applying the epoxy. Never put more CA, because in contact with lead it develops a chemical reaction which can destroy the model.
  11. Wonderful model, you can be very proud love the Beriev, it is one of my favorite aircraft... still waiting for a reasonable priced Be-40 Mermaid and Be-200 Altair
  12. Which movies trigger your modelling itch?

    Flight of the Intruder is the definitive winner for me here Great movie, so many modelling subjects to choose from, there is even something for the armour guys The Hunt for the Red October is a close second... not so much stuff here, but after watching it, I just can't help feeling very enthusiastic about building something On the other hand, Top Gun (and I just looove the Tomcat) leaves me totally flat... :/ Just remembered another great one, Where eagles dare also leaves me wanting to build a Ju-52 in winter camo... and some winter dioramas too...
  13. really fantastic build! just when I had all but decided to bin my half-built MB one and go for Airfix, your build made me reconsider... if I can build mine half as good as yours, it would be an outstanding success
