bootneck posted a topic in ClassicI am planning a future project to build a diorama in 1:144 scale of the scene below. It is of the dispersal area at Kuching Airport in the 1960's and the scene of a lot of military and civil air activity during the Borneo Confrontation. I served in Borneo in the latter part of the conflict, 1966-67, and this photograph epitomises the busy scenes around the air base. All of the aircraft visible in this scene are available in 1:144 scale and I am slowly acquiring them for my build; however, I am not certain if there is a set of decals available for a British United liveried Britannia, shown in the far right of the picture. Can anyone advise if such a set is available and, if so, who produces them? Thanks Mike
Heyhey All, Hot off the bench is my Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.VIII. Representing a 79 Sqn Royal Australian Air Force aircraft operating out of Morotai, Indonesia in 1945. T'was a fun build although seemed to be more of a fight than I expected. The detailed moulding is wonderful, although i did find quite a few fitting issues and there's not a small amount of filler in there (especially where the lower wing meets the fuselage underside). I tore a couple of the decals too, but that was just me being careless. Paints are a mix of Testors for the main scheme, humbrol for cockpit interior (and sundries) and alclad for various metal bits. Arf! I hope you like it and sorry for the low quality pics. I really need to get a better camera. ~M~
