  1. Yes! I had a period of unemployment in late 2015 when I worked on it fairly intensively then, but since then just snatched bits of time here and there...time dropped off quite a bit when my son arrived last April but he goes to bed earlyish now (ands sleeps fairly well) so I do a bit more in the evenings. Thanks! panel lines were done in pencil, all hand-scribed so i did not want to over-emphasise them... The conifer trees are twig/wire armatures with paint wall filler as 'bark', and green-painted fake aquatic plant foliage. I believe that dried moss can also look quite effective. Birch trees are painted seafoam sprigs (my dad grew them for me, I do not have 'green fingers'!), coated with hairspray then rolled in a static grass/flock mix. Easy to do and look good. Here's a vid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr3ReciNITM). Hi Les...if I was to start over I think I would use one the Trumpeter kits. The old Airfix kit (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AIRFIX-SUKHOI-SU27-FLANKER-B-MODEL-KIT-1-72-SCALE-/302600069002) has an accurate shape but poor details and bad fit...hence all the work to improve it. Thanks everyone else for your interest and kind comments!

  4. Not that I could find....I got other Advanced Modelling products (Amigo part of this range) from a Czech website (MODELIMEX). I did ask Hannants about importing their stuff but it seems they have not made enquiries about UK distribution.
