  1. A message of sympathy for Barcelona

    As a regular visitor to Catalonia, my heart goes out to the victims and their families.
  2. F-106

    Lucky you Ian, I only ever saw an F-102 when in service and F-1-1s in museums. I think you re right that no 106 ever graced our skies apart from that transit. Take care mate.
  3. MMS models: End of an era

    I have spoken to Barry on many occasions and even given him time for the odd comfort break by looking after his stand at Telford. All I can say is that his kits were first rate reflecting the man himself. Enjoy your retirement young man.
  4. F-106

    Thanks guys, I didn't re-scribe just took the raised lines down so only a 'ghost' image remained then used pre and post shading to break up the uniformity. The 'ghost' lines remain visible to outline the access panels etc. Not perfect but it works for me. IMHO opinion the F-106 is the best engineered, though I did use sprue sections as spacers to widen the upper fuselage to get abetter fit, the F-102 is the next best and the F-101 trails a long way behind. This is my old Voodoo post and while the pictures are no more there is some useful advice for Jeanton)1 about building the Voodoo, which I will think is worth sharing. I found both the F106 and the F-101 easily at model shows Ian at Kits for Cash had them at Newcastle this year. Wheel chocks, now that's a good idea. I used a great picture in an old book as a reference and looking at it now I see them.
  5. F-106

    This is the final of my triple build of the classic Monogram Century series, I've posted the F-102, and F-101 earlier, but they are lost in the PB fiasco. Anyway this is the earliest of the them all, modelwise, seeing the light of day in the 1983 and yet I think it is the best fitting of the three. Pretty much out of the box apart from a Master Probe, which given the number of times I knocked it during the build was a necessity and a set of the always excellent Caracal decals for a Michigan ANG machine, which sits nicely with another Revell Monogram oldie, my F-4C which where the same unit markings. Now for something smaller... Thanks for looking.

    Never forget their sacrifice
  7. Early British Sherman from Tamiya M4A1 in 1/48

    John, me too. His own range of metal 1/48th figures is well worth a look as well, especially for those of us interested in British and Commonwealth armour.
  8. Early British Sherman from Tamiya M4A1 in 1/48

    I think that's Parabellum models. His website is awful but he stocks lots of good stuff

    Have you had a look at the Friendship Models website. They have hull tops and early turrets listed. http://www.friendshipmodels.org.uk/
  10. I'm very interested in Sgt Hancocks' aircraft, I read the story in of all things 'Adventures on the High Teas' by Stuart Machonie( not sure I spelt that right), and have seen the plaque on to him on the local church wall. I look forward to your progress.
  11. Glen Campbell has died at 81

    He'll always be the Wichita Linesman to me.

    Signed. This cannot be allowed to happen.
  13. I built the version with the crusader turret a couple of years ago and didn't enjoy the experience as much as any of the Tamiya and Italeri 1/48th armour I've built. That said, if you take your time and are prepared to put 11 small parts together to make what would be one part on a Tamiya kit then the finished result is well worth it. I'm looking forward to your build
  14. I'm back...

    With my eldest I got a lot of modelling done when she was being fed mum I could also so some modelling when looking after her until she was six months and started crawling. Now she is 17 and working I get more time. so only 16 and a half years to manage. She has built models and is quite an enthusiast figure painter so some of it has rubbed off. The youngest isn't slightly interested.

    I'll be watching this one with interest as always I learn a lot from your work.
