  1. Propellors/Airscrews

    I think it was just a term appropriate at the time and as said above has been superceded by the more appropriate propeller. I have very rarely if ever come across the airscrew term when mixing with professional or other aviation types. Always an interesting subject though and enough to fill a book no doubt, or maybe it has ?
  2. P-51D canopy variations - a quick guide

    I was talking with a friend earlier and he has finished one and started another. He is very impressed with the fit of parts .
  3. P-51D canopy variations - a quick guide

    Bah, Airfix, three canopy choices. Whatever next. I suppose you will be telling us that you have managed to build it!
  4. Colours for F-35 Lightning II

    As I thought I was saying! Therein lays the answer. Start with what it should be and finish to personal satisfaction,light and distance will play with it anyway.
  5. Colours for F-35 Lightning II

  6. Lightning F6 (classing this one as finished for now)

    Superb! As an aviation oil painter (dabbler) I think it's marvellous.
  7. ? lationnteresting, but not pres ented very well. Shoot on a solid background, with the obligatory display of the bottom. Looks like a well painted plastic toy. Regards, Yuri. Say it it as you see it! Lost in translation maybe? Very nice job though Alex,it reminds me of the proposed BAC 311 (?) widebody with big fans.
  8. Airfix Wimpy for 2018

    Just be careful they don't sneek up when your not looking with ....a Manchester!
  9. BAE Lightning

    Very nice build there. Was going to do my next one green,but now you have me thinking! By the way , it would be English Electric or BAC , I do not think the BAe prefix has ever been attached to the Lightning.
  10. Best BP Defiant in 1:72?

    It looks every inch a Defiant and if you ever had to contend with the earlier kit from Airfix then this is as much as you need to make a nice representation of the real thing. Never look a gift horse in the mouth when its staring at you.
  11. Telford announcements

    Any sign of the military Argosy from Mikro Mir? (1/144th ).
  12. 1/72 Canadair CP-107 Argus

    That's lateral thinking! Marvellous job,thank you for sharing. Too big for me , but I will build that Welsh kit sooner than later now.
  13. 1/48 HobbyBoss F/A-18D Hornet

    Excellent job. It pains me to say it but youre interpretation of fifty shades grey looks really good. I am obviously not a fan of today's camouflage but for a bog standard "on deck" fighter it is super. (Bring back gull grey and white with a pallet full of colours )!
  14. I I have some of those but again they do need some fettling. They do however square tip props suitable for early Britannia"s.
