  1. Hawker Typhoon Museum Restoration

    So you took the plunge and got one! This is looking really exciting. If you need any spares (extra tailplanes and the like) I can bring whats left on the sprues of mine to the club one night for you to rummage through. Looking forward to seeing how this one progresses. 'Typhoon' Phill
  2. 1/48 Eduard Bf 109E-3

    Thanks everyone! Jean, I used Vallejo model air for all of the RLM colours including the yellow. Undercarriage and the spinner are Tamiya acrylic.
  3. 1/24 Airfix Typhoon Mk Ib

    Cheers Mark, I've got the 1/24 Tamiya rally pit crew as my ground crew. They're pretty much the closest you can get to WW2 RAF overalls in 1/24 but will probably need a little fettling and putty to remould certain features.
  4. As a massive Star Wars fan I was delighted when Bandai started doing these kits. Loved putting the kit together and posing it exactly as I wanted. Hope you like.

  5. Another one of my recent builds, this time it is a Bf 109E-3 of 9/JG3 in France 1940. It came as a profipack and is OOB apart from the marking being painted with Montex (told you I was converted). The fit on this kit is supreme and it pretty much fell together. Only place you have to do some fettling and dry fitting is around the engine cowling and cannon area.

  6. Long time lurker on here so I thought I'd post up some of my recent builds. Here is my 1/24 Typhoon that I recently finished. Whilst it was a marathon build, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Additions are the Airscale instrument decals, HGW harness, Master Models rockets, Eduard wheels and cannons. All markings were painted using Montex Masks. This was the first time I had used them but I've got to say I'm converted! Hope you like.

  7. Here's a few photos of the Frogfoot I've just finished. It's done in the colours of the Czech AF airshow 'Frog' colour scheme. All of the spots on the aircraft were sprayed freehand. Sorry about the photo quality, they were taken on my phone. The model is currently packed away as I'm in the process of moving.

  8. Having played DCS A-10 quite a lot, I have come to hate/fear/respect the Shilka and it's annoying buzz on the RWR. So when I saw this I relished the thought of making one. It went together really well and then I went to town on the weathering. This is the first model I've posted on here (been lurking for a couple of years!) Hope you like.

  9. The Thousand Mile War - Amchitka, Spring 1943

    It's your choice mate. Just adds another twist to the story of your diorama. Thanks for the welcome, I've been lurking on here for probably a couple of years but just haven't posted anything up till now.
  10. The Thousand Mile War - Amchitka, Spring 1943

    In that case don't bother with it. I also had that explanation in my mind aswell. I'm not in the business of making more work for people because I know what I'd do if I were in your position...
  11. The Thousand Mile War - Amchitka, Spring 1943

    Just read all the way from the start of the build and I think its amazing. I really like the variety you have achieved with the 3 P-40s. I can believe they are the same kit!. One small thing that you can have a think about... On the new aircraft, would the tiger heads be free from exhaust stains as the aircraft might not have been flown since painting them on. This could definitely be the case with the one on the right hand side as it is still a WIP.
