  1. 1/35 M4A2 76mm "Wet" Sherman

    Its coming together really well Nigel, some great details being added to the build
  2. Westland Sea King HU5

    I think that they are probably the same colour red or very close ill be using it for my Wessex build at some point
  3. Westland Sea King HU5

    A couple more pictures of the detail work going on. FLIR Turret is base painted in NATO Black, some highlights added. Sponson out riggers have had the anti slip extended to leading edge. The second main landing gear leg just need the wheels added. The winch has had a repaint after the HGW damage, I've got the exhaust area and the two bubbles of sea grey around the hand and foot holds to mask and paint and then it's decal time. Dan
  4. 1:72 Airfix BAC TSR.2

    It looks superb Bill , I have to agree with the others as not to tone it down to much
  5. Westland Sea King HU5

    Cheers chaps, I’ve extended the anti slip on the sponson out riggers as mine are a tad to short, I’ve also finished the second gear leg, just needs the wheels added. Hopefully get more done tomorrow Dan
  6. Woody, what can be said that's not already been fella ? An amazing build is all I can add
  7. Westland Sea King HU5

    Corrected the pipework that goes into in back of the sandfilter as per the Haynes book, its a real godsend for pictures of the small details Added a few more lighter panels as per my Ref pictures, I'll probably be doing ZA166 No 16 from 771 Sqn Cheers for looking Dan
  8. Airfix 1/72 Vulcan XL360

    Looking forward to seeing this one take shape , especially after seeing your other builds
  9. Westland Sea King HU5

    Noticed that some Sea Kings have slight colour variations with some panels, I've got the masking out again and added some to my build. I've lightened up the GRP part of the radome but its probably not enough yet, I'll probably have another go at that later. Cheers for stopping by Dan
  10. Hasegawa 1/48 MIG-25

    If ICM are providing the plastic for that boxing then it will be far more expensive, it's imported for one, Just look at our prices here in the UK for Hasegawa kits, after the importers have got it through customs and the importers have added their cut. It works both ways, Airfix kit prices in Japan are mouth watering to say the least all for the same reasons as above.

    A few more details painted up and the spot light added to the sponson. I made the light from a disk of thin aluminium punched out and added a drop of acrylic glue from one of those new pens that you cure with a UV light. FLIR mount gets some paint and the two other radio related boxes on the nose. The light is getting crappy now so i'm going to stop for the night. More tomorrow folks Dan

    First sponson almost done. The main gear leg is not glued into position yet hence why its swinging down, I'll lock it into place later on as part of the last assembly. Some touching up on the floatation bag is required. Regards Dan

    Hi Andy, It's Mr Hobby H318 Radome, its just had one thinned down coat so far, it paints a bit like Tamiya paint so I'm building them up rather than making masks. The front two will get sprayed rather than brush painted, not forgotten them mate They are just easy to mask up and spray. Regards Dan

    Thanks Adrian A bit more detail painting, this 72nd stuff gets fiddly at this point. The black cables are a real nightmare. Dan
