  1. Bit of advise sought with the SH 1/32 Tempest

    That's a pity. As I said in my earlier post, I found it a snug fit which benefitted from a lot of dry fitting: upload gambar
  2. Bit of advise sought with the SH 1/32 Tempest

    Graham, With mine, I attached the nose sections before joining the fuselage halves. Wings were fitted and the L/Edge inserts fitted afterwards. On mine there was virtually no tolerance between the inner walls of the u/c bays and the cockpit framework. It makes for a very snug fit and worth bearing in mind when building up the undercarriage bays. All in all, found it to be a quite trouble free build. Hope that helps Howard
  3. Christian, That looks superb. I particularly like the exhaust staining, how did you achieve that? Regards H
  4. Finally finished first serious model

    Beautiful job Tammy, when are you going to start that Corsair?? All the best, H
  5. Lancaster Mk.II with ventral turret

    I think it might be the angle the photo was taken from. Sure I can see two barrels on the starboard side when I zoom in. Wasn't the Rose-Rice turret a bit more bulbous.
  6. F/A-18A Hornet

    Excellent finish, very convincing. Proof indeed that grey schemes aren't boring!
  7. Thanks Noel, I will have a mooch around and see what I can find, which is what I should have done in the first place rather than ignore my mantra "build in haste,repent at leisure "
  8. Outstanding model Andy, would you mind telling me what size rivets you used?
  9. Thanks Noel, maybe not. Gun pod can be removed without casing any collateral damage. Do I just need to get rid of the intake? Not a chance, just wish I had found your build thread earlier. The mirrors were fitted as per the instructions and only tacked on with gators Grip. I can remove the external one easily enough and the two internal ones. Re attaching them might be a problem though, I shall have a think about it The air brakes just didn't seem right when I fitted them but by this time i was just wanting to get it finished. The length of the struts dictate they be in this position, I now wish i had shortened them as they don't look right do they. One thing for sure Giorgio, if you don't mind, I will contact you when I start building my next Phantom. In the meantime hopefully this will stop people making the same mistakes when they build one.
  10. Thanks to all of you for leaving such kind comments. Giorgio, please mention them or how else do we learn? I value constructive feedback as hopefully it helps me to improve. I have just quickly skimmed through your epic build and will read it in more detail later on. Your Phantom is superb, all the more so for being 1/72nd. Kev, thanks for yor comments. The heat staining was replicated by spraying various shades of AK Interactive Extreme Metal over Mr Paint dark Aluminium.
  11. F-4C Phantom 557th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 12th Tactical Fighter Wing Eduard/Academy 1/48th scale Hot off the bench is Eduard's re boxing of the excellent Academy kit. The kit is completely out of the box and proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable build, with no putty used anywhere! The kit comes with what I think is an SUU-23 gun pod, not shown in the instructions but I decided to use it. I am not sure how accurate this is as I believe the SUU-16 was initially used, perhaps someone can clarify for me? It has been painted mainly with the Mr Paint SEAC colours which were a joy to use. upload gambar
  12. P-51D Happy Jack's Go Buggy restoration-walkaround

    Mike, Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed that. Superb restoration and some great photography. Regards Howard
  13. Awesome model, the paint finish is outstanding! Looking forward to starting mine.
  14. Which 1/32 scale P51?

    I would recommend the Tamiya kit in terms of accuracy and ease of build. If you shop around you should be able to get one for around 70 quid, (there's one on eBay at the moment including replacement wheels). I consider myself an average builder and came up with is after 4 months of tinkering. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235007500-detroit-miss-p-51d-mustang-361st-fighter-group/
