  1. Hello Gang. Please allow me this opportunity to apologise for my absence from the forums in general and the GBs in particular over the preceding weeks but my father's rapidly worsening ill health and eventual death had hit me rather hard. This left me with neither the time nor the inclination to provide any worthwhile contribution to the forum so please forgive me while I play catch-up and get back up to speed with my neglected moderating duties. I've missed the Photobucket debacle so need to look into the existing situation and solutions then see how it can all be applied to our gallery and its poll if there's still an appetite for it.

  3. Thanks for the positive feedback gang. Glad you all enjoyed it. Knowing that makes it all worthwhile. There's a couple things I want to sort out before posting the poll but once done the idea is we all get a chance to vote for our favourite finished model and pick a winner over the next month or so. No prizes other than the priceless and everlasting kudos of our admiration
  4. Was wondering if you'd made a start to this one but clearly you've been busy
  5. Best of British - The Red Arrows

    A double build of two Red Arrows? Rather surprising to think the team has only used these two types over its 50 year history.
  6. Revell 1/32 Spitfire MKix

    Top job on the camouflage work Steve
  7. Airfix 1/72nd Whitley

    This one has taken a big leap forward Pity about the amount of filler required but you seem to have lept that hurdle without any trouble.
  8. Looks to be going together well Alex. Nice touch folding the wings; was looking at the seperated tips and it brought home how small these aircraft were that this was all they required to fit in a carrier deck lift when machines such as the Barracuda and Buccaneer had to be folded up like a posh restaurant napkin.
  9. Tim's Typhoon -- COMPLETED

    The decals give a nice burst of colour
  10. The PR. XIX certainly shows the lines of the late-model Spitfire off a treat with its smooth wings and you are doing a great job of capturing that chatacter Hope you enjoyed the East Neuk show. Was on family duties yesterday and couldn't make it but the Aberdeen Modellers Society lads and Duncan at BlackMike Models are all saying it was a good one.
  11. ***1 finished*** at the double

    You going with both or one now for the GB and saving the other for later?
  12. DONE - Revell 1/72 Red Arrows Hawk

    A Red Arrow Hawk is certainly British and has to be an icon to many of us both here in the UK and abroad from their busy airshow schedule. Alas this kit needs a little care and attention to get the best of it but does look like a Hawk once done. Although I enjoyed building this kit in-flight at the time I realised too late the rear cockpit is also too long as moulded so that rather spoiled it for me. Nothing that can't be sorted if you care to though.
  13. This has become a masterclass in scratch-building for me
  14. The ratchet strap detail really pops out on those fuel drums and the manner in which you've painted the hatches gives a great measure of authenticity in that area as well
  15. 264 Sqn Defiant

    Tidy work on the turret assembly there. Perhaps a good dry-brushing with progressively lighter coats of progressively lighter greys could help bring some of that otherwise hidden detail to light? If it's not too late and everything is closed up that is.
