  5. Bending PE

    can you bend them around small drill bits of the correct diameter Tom? Or the other way is I have a pair of pliers with circular jaws. Grip the part in the pliers where the bend is and use a steel ruler or some other straight edge to form the bend Bruce
  6. A few questions on Italeri's UH-1D "slick" (1/48)

  8. Greatly abbreviated WIP here This is the Kittyhawk 1/32 Bell Airacobra kit converted to my interpretation of an RAF Airacobra MK1 The WIP lists all the changes I made Kit was painted with Xtracolour paints using masks by Maketar for the codes and national markings Exhausts and wheels came from Mastercaster, and all gun barrels came from Master save for the 20mm cannon barrel which is aluminium tubing Whilst the kit does not fall together out of the box I had little trouble with the assembly Thanks to all those that fallowed the build Bruce IMG_0068 , IMG_0065 , IMG_0063 , , overall view ,
  9. 1/32 Bell P-39 Airacobra Mk1

    Finished Further pics in RFI I need to dull that prop blade down too!
  10. 1/32 Bell P-39 Airacobra Mk1

    Final parts being added Im not sure KH have the landing gear doors correct. Fitted as per instructions the lower doors overlap the upper doors. I can not see this on any photos of the real aircraft. I decided tp leave as is though as I want to get this finished before heading off on holidays Gun Barrels are by Master. I just need to fashion a pitot tube and aerial mast and she's about done
  11. M agnificent I do like a good Boston, and that's a ripper. Good move with Flickr Tony. I migrated some time ago as PB had becomeincredibly slow Bruce
  12. 1/72 Anigrand C-17A Globemaster III - Updated 21 Aug 17

    fantastic to see you progressing on this Ray Bruce
  13. Horrible War Movies

    Actually I didnt mind the film due to all the real footage used. What WAS bizarre though was the change to colour, half way through the film!! For those who have not seen it, it chronicles the rise of the US carrier force. Lots of great footage, but,yeah, overall, bad movie And watching that clip of Brian the Dog talking about Iron Eagle sequels reminded me of quite a good book I read years ago, titled - I think - Grey Eagles about a group of ex WW2 Luftwaffe pilots who take to the skies in restored 109s to seek revenge on the US pilot who shot them down. At least I remember it as a good read Bruce
  14. 1/48 Airspeed Oxford Ambulance.

    magnificent Bruce
  15. TRUMPETER 1/32 MIG 3

    Im liking this, don't see too many built. Trumpeterhave certainly improved on their stuff looking at those control surfaces, even if they have slowed down on the 32 scale releases
