  1. The Typhoon is probably my favourite aircraft ever and you've done a brilliant job here, well done!

    That's fascinating, are you aware of the lives of the first world war project which is being run by the Imperial War Museum? It allows volunteers to create profiles for service men and women and civilians involved in the war. I made one for my great grandfather with the link below, it's a fantastic project to get involved with if you can. https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7672247

    Thank you! I live in New Town.
  4. HMS Iron Duke (Airfix 1:600)

    When was your grandfather on board? My great grandfather joined the crew in early 1915 and served on her for the rest of the war, including the battle of Jutland. After the war he joined the army in India and continued working as a surgeon out there, reaching the rank of major general.

    That's amazing! My great grandfather was Arthur H Harty, a temporary surgeon aboard the Dreadnought and later the Marlborough. The photo etch is my biggest concern with the Trumpeter kit but I'll just have to persevere...

    Fantastic work there, the finish is perfect for a ship in my opinion.

    Thank you. I certainly hope it is!
  8. HMS Iron Duke (Airfix 1:600)

    Thank you very much!
  9. HMS Iron Duke (Airfix 1:600)

    Thank you! I also did the exact same thing when I was little, alas it was a simpler time.
  10. I too love a good Hurricane and your diorama really helps bring it to life.

    Excellent work there, very jealous of your view too... Seeing this makes me want to start on my Skyraider but I already have too much going on so it will need to wait.

    Hi, first of all thanks for your kind words! The deck was actually surprisingly easy to use and went down very easily. It was a little fiddly trying to remove all the little inserts but other than that it was great. The actual application was fine too and it stuck with no issues. This was the first time I had ever used one too but I'm glad I did!

    Sorry, seem to be having issues with photos...
