So what had started as a mojo restorer after discussion in the 'losing interest' has spiralled slightly out of control. A 1/72 F-117... After looking for other quick builds in the stash and coming up empty, some impulse purchases were made with the help of ebay and also Mikemx at mjw models. These arrived with a load of brassin weapons for the tomcat saga which is having a well deserved Christmas break. For this Christmas break wip there will be several sporadic builds going on, all in this thread. And I'm trying to not document absolutely everything, less time building see. So there will be: Via ebay: italeri 1/72 nighthawk airfix 1/72 red arrows From mjw: All eduard, 1/48 bell x1 1/72 spitfire mk9c, mig 15, f6f-5N possibly more... stay tuned!
Before Telford I was modelling really well. I then picked up a very nasty bug at the show and have been feeling grotty ever since. Even though I have begun to feel better my modelling mojo seems to have disappeared, until now that is. The release of this kit has had me more pumped up than any since the 1/48 Sea Vixen from Airfix as there are a few Fleet Air Arm schemes that I have wanted to have a bash at for years. So, without further ado, it was off the the LMS to pick up a couple of kits that I had on order and out modelling tools. I plan to keep this one simple as the main object of the excersise here is to get something finished. I shall keep the other kit until I see what comes out in the way of brass etch and decal sheets, I can always get another two or three in if it turns out that I cannot wait for these. So, here is what I managed to get done this morning. Not a lot but it is a start! I have cleaned up the main airframe parts and glued most of the cockpit parts together. I shall add a little detail to the ejector seats and modify the radio equipment on the shelf behind them to represent the T22s as used by the Fleet Air Arm. I hopre to get this done this evenng. I will add navigation lights and brake lines for the undercarriage and that will be about all for this kit. Initial indications are that this kit is both accurate and fits together superbly well. At £7 I think it great value for money and Airfix deserve to sell an awful lot of these. Hopefully this build will spur me on to getting on and finishing my Gotha and getting the next big build underway. Thanks for looking Martin ]
