  1. Airfix 1/72 Mustang IV (P51D)

    Thanks for the critique! Those decals really caused some headaches - i'll have to remember your tips next time. I think the instructions said to install the droptanks - if not i'm not entirely sure why I did that - but i'll see about remember the in to out process. I did apply a wash, but it was very light - just to bring out a little detail I think i'd love to have a go at a silver one - so will have to see about that in the future!
  2. HI All! Just finished my latest build and made a timelapse video about it! This is the new tool kit from airfix - really thought there was a wealth of detail. I feel the RAF paint scheme makes this look like a different plane, it's not as glamorous as the USAAF version (all shiny). I think I did a good job overall, but had a bit of an issue with those yellow decals taking ages to conform to the wings... Let me know what you think! Thanks in advance

    Those builds are awesome!
  4. 1/72 Curtiss Tomahawk (P40B)

    Thanks! Hahaha! The wonders of video editing! I too feel I have too large a stash and my speed building never seems to make a dent XD
  5. Hi All! Been some time since I last had time to build something, but here is my most recent attempt Let me know what you think! I'm quite happy with the weathering and finish overall, I don't normally build them "wheels up" however. Thanks in advance for any comments
  6. they've really improved in recent years
  7. Hi all! I completed the Revell Snowspeeder - It went together pretty well but I messed up in a few places, hopefully the mistakes aren't too noticeable . . . Let me know what you think
  8. Hi all! Been some time since my last creation, but finally found time to complete this: I built the older version of the kit some time ago, which I thought was pretty good. This has more detail, particularly in the cockpit. Let me know what you guys think!
  9. Airfix FW190 A-8 1/72 Scale

    Yeah, its a pretty good one to build. New design and toolings helps
  10. Airfix FW190 A-8 1/72 Scale

    Thanks for watching! I don't have the facilities to use airbrushes at the moment, but have dabbled with them in the past
  11. Hi all! It's been an absolute age since I last built a model kit, but finally finished this: Let me know what you guys think! I'm not 100% sure I mixed the matt varnish properly as the finish seems to be a bit too glossy for my liking . . but overall i'm happy with it. Thanks for looking!
  12. Hi all! Following a house move, this was the first kit i got around to building. Bit annoyed at the camera angle in the video as i was working in confined space and couldn't quite set it up right. What do you guys think of the build and finish? i didnt paint it as it was already in base colour, but feel it could have made a thicker wash.... thanks
  13. Hi all! I finally managed to complete my first ever ship build. Mostly spend my time building planes and trains. Let me know what you think of the build and finished model? I found it to be quite fiddly, what with the small pieces and the fit not being great. Sits on my window sill now though in pride of place XD
  14. Revell 1/144 Typhoon Mk1B

    Thanks for the info! I would definitely look at making longer videos in the future - the only reason they are short at the moment is because i'm seeing if they are well received on YouTube - and at the moment i'm only getting an average view duration of 2 minutes, so keeping them short as thats what I thought people would prefer. I'll slow them down in the future if more people will watch them
  15. Hi All! Been a while since my last post - hope you all had an awesome Christmas and New Year. Managed to find some time to get back into a bit of modelling recently Please check out this video and let me know what you think of the build I quite like building planes at this scale, but feel that this one was a bit dated. Not bad build though in my opinion. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your criticisms
