  1. Tamiya 1/32nd De Havilland Mosquito

    This has been an absolute pleasure to watch so far - stunning work, and I love your techniques for weathering and painting! I can't wait to see more!
  2. Either Great Wall Hobby or Cyberhobby do one in 1/144 IIRC
  3. Awesome. Look forward to watching this develop - I've got designs on Trumpy's 1/32 Thud, so this will no doubt give me some good ideas in the riveting and painting department. Great work!
  4. Amazing work so far! Are you going to re-do the rivets in a softer manner or just leave them off?
  5. What music are you playing? Pt III

    Wisdom Of Crowds by Bruce Soord and Jonas Renske - a bit of modern prog to chill out to...

    Lovely stuff, thanks!

    Pappy, Looks like a good kit, that tub is beautiful!
  8. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG1

    If it's done by Adam Tooby (which it looks like it is) keep an eye on his website - it probably won't be long after the kit's release before he starts selling prints of it. I have the Lightning box art on my wall as a print from his site!

    6. Oh for god's sake, why didn't they go for a Mk.X instead of a Mk.Y? Everyone knows they'd sell loads more of Mk.X etc. etc.

    Al, I haven't built the Fujimi kit yet, but I have heard good things - one is in my stash. I've also recently returned to the hobby (after about 7 years - a shorter gap, I admit), and I'd reccommend building a different kit to get yourself back in to it. Something just out of the box that will let you experiment and re-learn your techniques before you decide to go all in on something you want to be as perfect as possible - I chose the Airfix 1/48 SHAR 2, and it's certainly enabling me to relearn skills like sanding, filling, filing etc...! Once you feel back "in the groove", then I'd reccommend going back to the Phantom to nail it. Just my 2p, but welcome back and nice to have you on the forums!

    I believe the ideal time for a Vulcan re-tool would have been while XH558 was still flying, but seeing as she has now been grounded I'm afraid it will be some time until we see a new tool Vulcan. I agree about the Bucc though, it would be logical to complement the Phantoms. And I'm fairly confident they'll release the Victor K.2 parts as a small kit like they did with the Valiant PR parts. Only 48 hours to wait now for the big one...!

    Lovely, thanks for all the help!
  13. Lovely build Vadim! Based on the pics and description, this looks a good "mojo restoration" kit - I'll have to remember that. Good job!

    John, Thanks for the heads up on those sheets, that's most useful! Also found these, which I assume will fit the bill along with the kit stencils? https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ADTS7228 Currant, Excellent gen, thanks for that - I'll make sure to bookmark it....

    John, Marvellous, that's just what I was after! I'll source some decals then; quite pleased about that!
