  1. 1/48 Zvezda Yak-3 "White 6"

    That is a beautiful example of skillfull modelling! DennisTheBear
  2. That is beautiful! Very nicely done! Now there is an interesting idea for a large scale figure diorama. DennisTheBear
  3. Italeri Dakota Mk.III

    I've just discovered this build thread, and am enthralled! Since I have a couple of Italeri Daks (a Testors/Italeri DC-3 with Eastern Air Lines decals, and a Dakota Mk.III to be done with a set of Hawkeye Models Australian National Airways decals) I'm watching with interest. BTW great progress so far! DennisTheBear
  4. Great Nephew .

    Is the moral: Young people can be influenced by their revered elders? DennisTheBear
  5. Nicely done on both of those! For the photography part try overexposing just slightly when photograping silver aircraft as the camera thinks it is brighter than it really is. DennisTheBear
  6. Academy's F86E Sabre in foil

    If you're using a camera to photograph it focus on a panel line, using the Macro mode (for point-&-shoot compacts). If you're using your phone tap on the screen where you want it to focus. The bright foil reflection makes auto focus difficult.
  7. Airfix Focke-Wulf 190 F-8 1/72

    While you can see where the fuselage cracked it doesn't detract from the fact that this is a very good effort for only your third wingy thing! Great paint work on this pugnacious little fighter!
  8. I've always thought that British soldiers showed magnificent courage and fortitude in all the combat situations they've been in, whether they won or lost. BTW a very nice Strikemaster! DennisTheBear
  9. Stab IV - Staff Flight of IV Group (I think). Very nicely done! DennisTheBear
  10. I missed it first time around. Beautifully done. I've got the Red Roo markings for this machine. I'll eventually get around to doing it. DennisTheBear

    Sir, I say sir, please cover yourself lest you frighten the faint-hearted! Brilliantly done!! DennisTheBear
  12. Martlet Mk.I

    Just a question about that photo. There is a single F4F without the upper cowl intake, just to the right of centre. Is it a different variant? Just curious. DennisTheBear
  13. Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf109 E-3

    Second all the comments so far. I use only basic tools, and my most complicated tool is a cheap, battery-powered rotary toothbrush with emery paper superglued to the bristles. One point about the model is that on a Bf 109 the undercarriage legs are angled outward which can be seen on photos of the real aircraft. But overall a great build for only a 4th model! All the best!

  14. They are very nicely done! Both well built and beautifully finished! DennisTheBear
