  1. Wow, that's fantastic. Congratulations on a superb build. Very nice video as well and I loved the Phantom taking off at the end. All the best, Martin

    I like how you are getting on, John. I love the wicker chair, the colour is perfect. It might be a bit down the line but have you given any thought to the piece of rigging, front and centre through the "bullet"? I've done a minimal amount of rigging on a few builds but I can't get my head round that piece, it's as if you need some sort of levitation spell. Am looking forward to how your build unfolds, All the best, Martin
  3. Wingnut Wings Sopwith F.1 Camel “Clerget”

    😀 I reckon you're hooked already. I went a bit mad last year, I work a lot of overtime and just thought, why not. I have the 1. Camel Clerget, like you, 2. an Eindecker E111 late, which I have built and enjoyed immensely. Also in the stash are, 3. FE 2B late, the rigging makes my head hurt looking at it. 4. Roland DV1B 5. SE 5E Hisso 6. Hansa Brandenburg 7. F2B 8. The amazing looking Jeannin Stahltaube. Keep me going for a while I guess, All the best, Martin

    Many thanks for the link. The Wingnut kits are pretty special aren't they. I seem to spend hours looking at the boxes and instructions, I've bought 8 now but so far only made the one. Best of luck with yours, Martin

    Thanks for posting this review. I was undecided about getting one but this has made my mind up, it's next on the list. Cheers, Martin
  6. Wingnut Wings Sopwith F.1 Camel “Clerget”

    Hello John, I like what I'm seeing so far. The wood effect fascinates me as I have seen so many different methods and they always look great. I'm interested in the PE stencil you mentioned, so might have a look for one. I've just finished my first Wingnut kit, an Eindecker, but this Camel is the first one I bought and am saving it for a rainy day. Look forward to seeing yours built, Martin

    I like that, congratulations on a great build. I love to see a wingnut wings kit, am becoming a bit obsessed with rigging and wood effect paintwork. All the best, Martin
  8. Many thanks for the reply. Just had a quick look at Nick's WIP, and wow. That is superb. As is the Bill Plunk one. I'll remember them for that rainy day when I start mine. As for you being a beginner, I think it looks superb. One thing I'm a beginner at is weathering, yours is top class and just right. Im off now to have a proper look at Nick's build. Cheers, Martin
  9. That looks fantastic I like the head on/stern shots, it looks so menacing and powerful. May I ask what you used as a rigging diagram or guideline? I have this in my stash and want to have a go at it some time this year. Your rigging looks amazing, very, very good. All the best, Martin
  10. Lanchester Armoured Car

    That's amazing. I'm so glad I logged in for a quick browse. Every single aspect is superb but if I had to pick a favourite part it would be the wooden planks. They look so real. Congratulations on such a brilliant build, All the best, Martin
  11. Sherman "FURY"

    Absolutely superb. Really, very, very good. Congratulations. Every part of the build looks great but I particularly like the wet look of the mud and the dejected look on the men. Top class build. All the best, Martin
  12. Airfix 1/48 Walrus

    I echo what many have said above. Looks great to me, love the finish, it looks so real and worn. This kit was on my 'to buy' list, which will go on the subs bench stash before getting upgraded to the main stash cupboard. After seeing this I may take the plunge sooner. All the best, Martin
  13. GMC CCKW-353 1/35 TAMIYA

    Michael, your models are very, very good. I could add a few more "verys" to that. They look so real. You have a gift. All the best, Martin
  14. Wingnuts Stahltaube

    Beautiful build, what a wonderful machine this is and you have captured it perfectly. I have this in my stash, I think it might stay in the cupboard for a while. All the best, Martin
  15. P-61 Black Widow.

    I like that, looks just right. I am a lover of this plane it looks so menacing and powerful sat there ready to go. All the best with your future canopy masking, that is maybe the one part of this hobby that I don't look forward too. All the best, Martin
