Johnny, just read this from start to finish, and what a stunning build.  I too have had good experiences with Vallejo Metal Color, but I've only done lottle pieces, not a NMF beauty.

 

Lovely jubbly.  Looking forward to the Bloody Paralyser...

Thanks. I'm going to have to put that name in the title.

 

thanks for all the lovely comments.

still away but I'll be back in a few days. Possibly get the RFI done before the weekend. I have Download Festival on Sunday However.

 

Rock 'n' Roll year or what? :analintruder:

Damn you life for getting in the way of plastic. I need to catch a train in 20 mins "Jimmy Carr in Brum "  so can't post the RFI.  :huh:

Tomorrow friends, I promise.  :lol:

There are a LOT of pics. :analintruder:

Here's the link to the new 0/400 build if you fancy tagging along with some madness of a stringy WW1 kind.

Jimmy Carr is great live IMHO... especially when he's testing the audience on their 'prudishness'. Enjoy!

Yes he was great, getting heckled by some drunken idiot to do new material on a "best of" tour was a joy to behold. 

:lol:

Flippin' 'eck Mr Spadg, this looks amazing. :yikes:

 

The first build of your's that I saw was the Handley Page Nightmare. I'm now watching the EE Lightning build quietly from the wings (pun intended) but have only just come across this one (which predates both) by noodling through BM's WIP's.

 

Anyways, it's absolutely terrific. And you're a very talented guy. (You do however have a very odd taste in music :guitar:)
