  1. From Failure to Failure

    Excelent work. I’d get yourself some more bottles of “precision tools” and call it a good job. Johnny.
  2. Wacky Wabbit - Harvard 1/72

    I could do with some of that masking tape!!!
  3. Airfix 1:72 Lightning F6

    Ooh you swine you have your wheels started. Those hubs do look rather good. I’m looking forward to getting mine started soon. John.
  4. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Crackers and bonkers in the nut Tony that’s what you are. But I loves it. Ripping the whole Cockpit apart to move the seats forward is wonderfully crackers and exactly what this hobby of ours is all about. To be fair I’m not sure if I would be able to have done that but then again I did re-wangle the cat office a few times, although not to this extent. It’s the “knowing” and the “will I regret it for evah” part that pushes us on eh. Stunning Sunday service Barony. I’m in awe, did you happen to mention paint? In sure you did. Mmmmmm paint.
  5. Just caught up while cooking Sunday lunch. Wonderful work on this, the office is looking splendid, all the extra work you’re putting in paying off in spades. I must really try and pop in more often. Nice one Ian. John.
  6. Thanks Pete. I like your mustang, very nice. Thanks G just got the few. (Ahem) bits to do now.
  7. New Airfix 1/48 Mustang, 303 Sqn

    Well that’s rather nice work. Bravo sir. john.
  8. Thanks guys, a little more done today, still snotty but I think I’m on the mend. proper modelling weather over our way, snow/sleet/rain. ‘orrible. so here’s where we’re at. flory wash on. And mid way through rubbing it off again. Aaaand all off. nice and subtle, just picking out the panel lined and details. I did a Matt coat before removing the lower masks. That little red decal on the wing has confirmed beautifully. the nose ring went on, I just have to paint a bit of glare strip on it. I should have done that before gluing but what you gonna do? the lower masks are off. I must now spend at least some time with the other inhabitants of the house. I tidied up and wrote what I thought were the last few steps to completion. ok I give it a few more weeks then. See y’all later. hope you’re having a super weekend. Johnny Lightning.
  9. 1/48 Airfix P-51D Mustang

    Ok then there’s another on I’ll add to the list. You’re doing a fine job by the way. John
  10. My Telford sin... Supermarine Walrus

    Well a walrus now is it? I just can’t keep up with all of your builds CC. I for one haven’t got my mits on this kit yet. It looks soooo good and you’re doing a splendid job. I’ll look forward to more progress. Hopefully work wasn’t so bad eh. All the best. Johnny boy.
  11. Polikarpov I-16 Type 28, 1/48, ICM

    What a great little aeroplane. Wonderful work as always. John.
  12. Mosquito FB Mk VI, 1/48, Tamiya

    Lovely to see her in RFI. It’s been a while. great work sir.
  13. 1-72 Heinkel He-280 V2

    Great work Nigel, keep it up. John.
  14. From Failure to Failure

    Yes you are!
  15. Thanks. On a side note, the side roundel stripe decal ended up being tha same green as the paint. Not sure if that’s how it’s meant to be but it looks good to me.
