  1. Mirage IIIC. 1/48 Eduard Weekend Edition

    Thanks. she is still standing. I was originally planning the NMF scheme, but the more I looked at the kit I found the desert scheme calling me. It does look good. Light matt coat applied. Calling this finished. I am happy with how it has turned out. Just need to finish the standing figure and then I will take some pictures for the gallery.

    Started decalling. Found the decals frustrating, seem to take an age to release from the backing paper with a tendency to fracture but did eventually settle down with an application of Micro Sol.

    With the deadline looming, progress continues with a half hour here & a half hour there. Decals finished, she has had a coat of Klear and been given a light wash of Flory Models "Grime". Start made adding the under carriage, found them quite fiddly and don't look that strong.

    Just spotted this GB and fancy a change from aircraft. I have had a look at the stash and if I have done my homework correctly I think these should qualify as I believe they are all based on a M3 or M4 chassis. 1/35 Italeri M32 Recovery Vehicle 1/35 Italeri Kangaroo Infantry Support Vehicle 1/35 Academy M7 Priest

    I haven't received mine yet either. I have emailed them and got the following reply this morning.
  6. Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG1

    Test shot build in this months Airfix Model World. (Nov2017 issue) Looks good to me. Also has an article on building a deck catapult base.
  7. My entry. Built a number of Matchbox kits growing, but not this one. Looking forward to this, should be a fun build.

    Given a coat of Future before applying the wing walkway decals. I found the decals have a tendency to fracture, need some touching up. Wings have now been joined too the fuselage.

    Thanks, first attempt at feathered edges using blue-tac sausages. Not perfect but I am happy with the result. Progress continues at a snails pace. Made a start of the decaling
  10. **Airfix, The Golden Years Group Build.

    I am up for this one. Nothing in the stash but will be looking for a Meteor III. This was introduction into this hobby, built with my Dad in the 70s.

    Today's rain gave me a chance to get some more paint on (as opposed to mowing the lawn etc). Still have some overspray to deal with.
  12. An informative thread, hope you don't mind me asking a question. With respect to railings, when do you paint them? before you fix them of after.

    Don't know about the original, the the clear pieces are quite thick and will need some work to get them to fit. Binned the smaller windows, will use Krystal Klear to glaze them. The elephant decals are tempting but will be finishing in olive drab fuselage and yellow wings. Many (many) years ago I first saw a picture of a B10 in a kids annual, it was in OD/yellow and ever since I wanted to build one in those colours. Just took me a long time to find a kit. Those beers are tempting!! A bit of progress, fuselage joined and parts primed. Started to clean unp the flash on the smaller bits, it is a time consuming exercise. Wings dry fitted, will paint them separately then join when finished to simplify masking.

    The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S Grant is a good read.
