  1. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    I'm not into dark spirits myself. I prefer clear ones. I've found that a good slug of gin works wonders at any time of day. And in any situation. The only bourbon I've ever drunk was Southern Comfort when I was a student very many years ago. That resulted in a rather unfortunate 'lost weekend' and I've never repeated it. However, I was given a bottle of Woodford Reserve for Christmas which looks rather good (get thee behind me Satan). I haven't opened it yet but I certainly won't let it go to waste.

    I've been away from this for a while, but it's looking great Rich. Lovely work as ever. I see you've even put a tear in one of the seats. Just brilliant
  3. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    Hi Bill I've been watching this with fascination (and in awe) as I'm also building a 1:72 TSR2 at the moment. Mine is the earlier boxing though, not the Statos / Anime one. I found your thread after searching the forums. I originally came across the mind-boggling one that @Seversky did, then the one by @Martian Hale . Your's is going to be stunning too and I have to confess that, because I have nowhere near the skill or experience that you have, I'm using your thread as something of a guide on 'how to do it'. I hope you don't mind. I did wonder about creating a topic of my own but decided not to as I don't want to find myself making a huge cock-up in the full glare of the BM community! At least, not yet. I'll hold off until I get more experience under my belt. What I will do though is upload it once it's done (if it looks ok) and ask for critical comments. I have no idea when that might be as I'm nowhere near the painting stage yet. Anyway, I'll keep following and hope that mine ends up somewhere (anywhere) near as good as your's is shaping up to be, as well as those of the other guys mentioned above. Thanks for publishing it. Tim

    Nice. I love the shape of those early MiG jets
  5. Flippin' 'eck Mr Spadg, this looks amazing. The first build of your's that I saw was the Handley Page Nightmare. I'm now watching the EE Lightning build quietly from the wings (pun intended) but have only just come across this one (which predates both) by noodling through BM's WIP's. Anyways, it's absolutely terrific. And you're a very talented guy. (You do however have a very odd taste in music )

    I've not seen this for a while and blimey, it's covered in barnacles! (joke). But seriously, it looks absolutely terrific. And just out of interest, have all the extras added much to the weight of the kit? I'm particularly curious to know about the Green Stuff.

    Happy Holidays to you too Rich. What will Santa be bringing you?
  8. Revell 1/48th RAF Tornado GR1A.......

    Permission to speak General - The troops are becoming restless sir. They've been kept behind the lines waiting, and idle, for too long. There are mutinous murmerings in the air. I fear they could even break into: "What do we want? :The General's Tornado" "When do we want it?: Now" Ooh er.
  9. Mistercraft Hunter F.6, 1/72.

    I bought a 1/72 Mistercraft MiG 15 a while ago from Ebay for about a fiver. I was seduced by the decals as it offered a choice of East German, Bulgarian, Romanian, Polish, Czech or Russian aircraft. The instructions show a far more detailed kit than the one in the box (which is 'basic' to say the least); there's very little surface detail, none at all in the cockpit, the pilot resembles poor old John Merrick and the decals are thin and fragile. I did add some extra detail in the cockpit and added a better pilot and the parts went together ok but the finished kit is out of scale being at least 10% too large. It's rubbish really. I hope your Hunter is better.
  10. Westland Sea King HU5

    I absolutely love that phrase.
  11. Westland Sea King HU5

    I've been watching this quietly from the sidelines and have to say that i absolutely love the detailing and the care and attenton you're giving to it. I know some folk will argue that because much of it isn't seen, there's not a lot of point adding super detail to interiors, but I think there are times when every minute spent on the 'hidden extras' is absolutely worth it. This is one of them. I'm really looking forward to see it progress through to the final piece.
  12. Big As MAZ

    Ah, I didn't realise/notice that (my brain isn't as young as it once was). Whatever solution you arrive at Rich, the result will no doubt be spot-on.
  13. Big As MAZ

    I had to snigger at the unfortunate arrangements in the first photo, and I haven't a clue what a 'hood' is; don't you mean bonnet? But seriously, the card could well give you the scale you want. Would styrene sheet and rod do something similar?

    a double tap to the back of the head? Some of these Russian chaps don't pussy-foot around you know
