  6. Hi all, I recently completed this beaut of a kit I had no problems whatsoever with the kit and throughly enjoyed the build Masked and sprayed the stripes as I didn't feel like risking it with the decals Used the pilots to fill the seats because I feel the decal seatbelts looks a bit flat Constructive criticism very much welcome! -Cam

  9. Special Hobby 1/72 Barracuda Mk II

    Hi all, Progress was a bit slow for the past few days but I got few things done. First of all I painted some of the detail, I'm not sure if any of this is correct but it adds some interest. Added a brown filter in the cockpit and wheel wells I then attempted to add some seat belts from tamiya tape, these are probably far from correct but they fill the empty seats Next up: Trying to put the fuselage together -Cam

    Thanks for the advice Another quick update today, Sprayed the interior with Tamiya XF 71 and I was pleasantly surprised about how well it sprayed Next thing to do will be the detailing in the cockpit as well as maybe attempting to make some seatbelts -Cam

    Thanks Welcome aboard Quick update today Assembled all the cockpit sub assembles and prepped them for some interior green. For anyone planning to build this should be weary of one of the cockpit sub assemblies which I had trouble lining up the two support frames due to the lack of joining surface area That's all for today - Cam
  13. Hi all, I recently picked up this kit and thought I'd share my progress on BM Obligatory sprue shot Before I begin is there are faults or problems in this kit that should know about before I start? -Cam

    Count me in! I've got unbuilt airfix 1/48 Hurricane sitting on my workbench so this is a great motive to start it!
