  1. Joining you with this kit. Which has remained in my stash since it came out in 1997. Two finish options - both Europe Lizard. I've not decided which as yet.
  2. Finished this today - the HobbyBoss A-10 with Authentic Decals aftermarket transfers and Eduard bombs and missiles. I'm visiting a friend in England tomorrow and her son James asked me specifically for a model of this type of aircraft - he requested 'wheels-up' so he can hang it from his ceiling, which required a bit of modification but the kit gear doors fortunately fitted very well. I added an Airfix pilot from the Vampire. I got the transfers because the kit transfers looked a bit ropey and didn't include a sharkmouth(!) and was a bit dismayed to find the kit didn't include any external stores either which meant I promptly spent twice what I had paid for the kit on Eduard resin bombs (Mk.82, Mk.83, Paveway II and HoBoS, if I recall correctly). I'm not sure if the aircraft would have carried all these stores at the same time but the model is for a 14-year old so I reasoned moar dakka. Thanks to Jamie at Sovereign Hobbies for sorting me out the colours (ACUS03 Light Ghost Gray and ACUS40 Dark Ghost Gray) - the kit instructions show a much greater contrast between the two greys (grays) but this is for clarity, the real colours are pretty hard to tell apart - not quite as hard as my photos indicate but that is my fault. Anyway it's my first completion of the year, here it is: Cheers, Stew
  3. Im in with a Lizard A10A from Tamiya in 1/48. This is an old kit, with raised panel lines and unrealistic armament - I will look for references, raid the spares and other kits for appropriate weaponry... As you can see, I bought this 'partially started' from Evil Bay - can I ask Mods for the to confirm its wellunder the 25% mark - I will need to start again anyways.. I have some aftermarket decals from XtraDecals to build an A10A based out of RAF Bentwaters/RAF Woodbridge - these were always seen around East Anglia growing up in the early 80's in their cool lizard scheme. I often went to Bentwaters as a youngster before joining the Army in 1985, as my dad had a friend serving in the USAFE based there so loads of memories.... Funny thing, 21 years later A10C's saved my and some colleagues bottoms a few times in Helmand (along with GR7/9s !) and they are still going strong - formidable weapon with that great sound when it fires over you.....Brrrrrrp..... Brrrrrt.... More Brrrrt... Low level fun from the titanium bathtub!
  4. Hi guys, as you can see in the title I will do the 1/32 Hasegawa P-47D Thunderbolt II. It will be build most out of the box. Pictures of the box content will follow later. cheers,
  5. Hi everyone! I finished this one a while ago, but have not yet presented it to the Britmodeller readership. It's the Revell (Italeri rebox) A-10A, that was built under a strong influence of 'A-10s over Kosovo' book. While A-10 is in my top 3 US aircraft list, it is said to see so many A-10 models built with totaly unrealistic loadouts. In this case, I replicated the warload as it was on that fateful day, including the empty Maverick rail. For more photos and full story (I bet you are wandering what's with the green engine pod), click on the below photo. Thanks for watching!
