  1. 1/48 Airfix Sea Vixen FAW.2

    I couldn't give a rat's bottom what colour the bands are on the missiles. Very nice job. I hope when I get to do my Dragon one I get it looking half as good as that.
  2. Got an airbrush for Christmas. Did this to see how it worked. Did this to see if I could pre-shade. Going to do this to see if I can do filth, grime and paint chips. Millennium Falcon filthy, not agricultural vehicle filthy.
  3. Special Hobby Saab Viggen AJ-37

    Just bought the Heller one as a result of this thread. £12.99 Inc delivery. 1. I hope that I can do the splinter cammo. 2. So much for me not buying anymore kits .

    Very, very nice.
  5. Italeri F4S Phantom II - Second go with an airbrush

    Just have a look at the references on here. There was a recent thread about a Sea Vixen that was very informative for me. I also turned the pressure down to 10psi on my second attempt and got a better result than the 20psi on my first one.
  6. Italeri F4S Phantom II - Second go with an airbrush

    I used thinned Tamiya Semi Gloss on it.
  7. Italeri F4-S Phantom

    My second attempt with an airbrush. The kit was a bit basic but went together reasonably well, with a bit of filling required around the nose and where the intake covers join the fuselage. It could have done with a few more decals too. Fire Away!
  8. Italeri F4S Phantom II - Second go with an airbrush

    Second attempt with an airbrush. Fin. The aim was to do one with pre-shading and not cover it with weathering. I'm really pleased with the outcome. Next up will be the Italeri B25 Mitchell Gunship with pre-shade, weathering and paint chips. Will take better photos when the light improves. Probably in May.
  9. Italeri Tornado F.3's AWC and 111 Jets

    Thanks. I remember making the Airfix one 35+ years ago when after a bit of "playing" the pylons just fell off.

    How to the weapons pylons move with the wings, can you turn them or are they fixed?
  11. Italeri F4S Phantom II - Second go with an airbrush

    Decals and clear coat on. Just wheels and weapons left to do.
  12. Show us your stash!?

    Dirt cheap. About £7 IIRC. Christmas pressies. As far as a mid-life crisis goes it is a lot less dangerous than coke and hookers ;-)
  13. Show us your stash!?

    Stash It looks there is a Lightning in there too. and a Fouga Magister.
  14. Show us your stash!?

    I've got 2 mountain bikes, a road bike, a cyclo-cross bike and a BMX that all require maintenance. Little plastic aeroplanes are virtually free by comparison. My entire stash costs less than a set of replacement bearings... Which is why I've spent the entire winter building kits instead of riding bikes in the mud and filth.
  15. Show us your stash!?

    …and a Mig 29. In the stash for my kids:- Red Arrows Hawk and a Zero and Warhawk that are both WIP.
