  1. Southern Expo at Hornchurch - this weekend

    All packed and ready to go so hopefully we at Thames Valley will be there too, weather permitting. So come and say hi. Looks better for Sunday I must admit (at the moment) but we shall see in the morning....
  2. Thank you. Yes, it's the new Airfix 1/48th scale one. And it's finished in Xtracolor enamel paints throughout. My other one is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235033983-airfix-148th-sea-fury/ Thanks, Tony, appreciated.
  3. Not wishing to steal their thunder but I couldn't help adding my contribution to the 803 squadron line up along side Tony and Cris's examples.... This ones straight from the box with the decals from the new Fundekals sheet for RCN Sea Furies. I only chose K as it's obviously my initial. Usual problem with the short shot fin leading edge but not too much trouble. Thanks for looking (again) 20180228_131633 20180228_131918 20180228_132012 20180228_132025
  4. Airfix 1/48th Sea Fury

    Thank you. I was quite fortunate on this one as it was only about 3mm and I just used some thick superglue once the 2 halves were together and re scribed the curved line. My second one I'm doing is worse and most of the leading edge is missing....I think what I'll do is pretty much the same but with filler so I can shape it easier. As its going to be dark grey I might get away with a pencil line to replicate the engraved section. I'll let you know....Have fun anyway! All totally unnecessary as far as I'm concerned....naughty Airfix!

    Ah, that's better Mike. Thank you.
  6. Airfix 1/48th Sea Fury

    Thank you, I think I've done it now but it still leaves a big gap on the post where they were?
  7. Airfix 1/48th Sea Fury

    Sorry that's my fault. There are no pictures...I deleted the original ones to change the resolution of them and I'm not sure how to close the gap?
  8. Here's my first Airfix Sea Fury. Straight from the kit except for Eduard seatbelts and decals from Eagle Strike. A really nice model to build except for the aforementioned short shot fin leading edge and sink marked rudder. I did attempt a gunsight but as you can't really see it I only ended up with a representation. Really nice panel lines and an almost perfect fit throughout. Thanks for looking. 20180216_204410 20180216_204352 20180216_204547
  9. SW Model Show at The Tank Museum Feb 2018

    Not done the one at Cosford but been there a few times on a 'normal' day and the lighting there is pretty good in the main hangers (except maybe in the Cold War area downstairs) To be honest that was Yeoviltons biggest let down's particularly if you were situated anywhere underneath Concorde.....Hendon also suffered the same way too unfortunately except in the Milestones hanger.. OK, I know its never going to happen but I'd like to see an event at Duxford where the lighting in the main hangers is virtually daylight. OK, the super hanger is not so good and also the rear of the American Museum and the Land Warfare building isn't conducive to having tables on the walkways. But all that glass in the front of the AM would be ideal.. The only disadvantage there would be the weather as I'm sure it gets a bit nippy this time of year. Old Wardens show is like that in the hangers and they turn into a wind tunnel if the winds in the wrong direction.

    You're welcome.
  11. SW Model Show at The Tank Museum Feb 2018

    Yes indeed. There was a survey that came through to all exhibitors and traders yesterday which I duly filled in. Whether it'll be taken on board or not we shall have to wait and see.
  12. SW Model Show at The Tank Museum Feb 2018

    Strange, as Yeovilton was only ever a one day show.
  13. SW Model Show at The Tank Museum Feb 2018

    As Kevin says above our club was there and from a personal point of view I think it will be the last for me at least. Firstly, we were virtually hidden away in corner behind the R/C tank display (although a week ago I asked where we were and they said in the Churchill suite), so I don't know who changed that. Also for most of the day we could hardly hear ourselves think let alone talk to members of the public properly. (no disrespect to the tank guys it just wasn't the right area for our type of models) I would have thought the logical thing to do would be put liked minded clubs at least somewhere together (ie the suites?) I'm wondering if it was the naughty corner as we couldn't do both days..... It was quite dark there too. During the day I could see a lot of people look over to where we were but not bother to actually come over. As others have said there was a distinct lack of traders and I don't think there were as many clubs although I suppose they could have been secreted away in corners and behind vehicles and I missed them? Anyway, we'll have a club discussion and decide what we want to do next year......It's not going to happen I know.... but bring back Yeovilton... It was made all the more disappointing because we enjoyed it last year and had high hopes.....

    Lovely! Puts my one to shame...
  15. RAF Hercules in 1/144th question

    Following on from my Beverley and Argosy builds I was thinking of building a brown/tan RAF C-130K (1968/69) to go with them. Is it possible to use any of the Minicraft kits or are there things 'exclusive' to C-130K's. Decals are not a problem obviously. I know there's the Welsh Models one but I'm not keen on vacforms. Thanks in advance.
