    Grump Britain.

    I wouldn't mind the metric system (in fact, I quite like it - much easier to work with) if it wasn't for the nomenclature. I could get my head around what x lbs/sq. in. felt like, but how do you visualise a hectopascal? Nanosecond I understand (the time it takes from when I put money into my wallet to when it has to come out again) but by and large SI units are a pain.

    Airfix 1:72 Phantom FG.1

    Very nice looking model. The weathering is just spot on.
  4. Absolutely no criticisms from me Dave-that is one gorgeous 707. They certainly don’t make ‘em like that anymore - more’s the pity! Your paint job looks flawless btw Nick.
  5. The lovely Marianne is all set for her afternoon's sortie. She has a Morell anemometer... And a pretty machine gun... All togged out and ready to cause a bit of Teutonic mayhem: A really challenging but very satisfying build...of a largely-overlooked but quite important aircraft. Great fun as a project. More photos in the RFI section. Thanks to all who have looked, liked, or followed along.

  8. I really don`t want anybody to think that I`m hogging the place,..... I just like Mitchell`s!!! I`m in the middle of a Hasegawa B-25H at the moment on the GB if you want to follow that,..... the kit is lovely! Cheers fellas, Tony

    RCAF aircraft photo collection

    That's a great find Mike. Lots of useful photos to be studied at great length. Bang goes my list of jobs for the weekend Thanks for posting it here.

    OV-10s! Super nice pics!

    Modelcollect have arrived at BlackMike Models

    Turns out that the T-64BM kit is the actual Bulat (BM-2 was apparently developed in parallel), but the good news is that you can build either version from either of the kits.....So they're both Bulats, or not, according to the modeller's preference. Modelcollect have also just announced a trio of MRAP types: FWIW
  12. I am a fan of the Sharpie marker idea,it helps cleanup before it's too late...

    Douglas EF-10B Skyknight (Matchbox)

    All your work paid off Ragnar, that looks superb.
  14. I might be coming across as a bit of a grouch, but ANZAC Day is NOT a happy and joyful day. It's a day of remembrance; a great many of the people marching or watching are still carrying grief or suffering from PTSD or crying over the loss loss of family members and friends. We remember their sacrifice, and honour it. We might have a quiet drink with mates. Only the most classless use ANZAC Day as an occasion for joyful clebration Shane

    Maritime Patrol including Coastal Command GB

    Back on Page 14, I posted a broad outline. Yes, Helos are allowed but I think in the case of the RAN Sea King its role at the time deployed aboard HMAS Melbourne was not of patrol, it's ASW was more fleet defence. Later in life, they became a shore based utility helo.
  17. OMG, you are a modeling God, amazing work!

    A Cuban Sea Fury.

    Very nice. Very sorry to hear about your parents. I lost my mom only 3 weeks ago, my dad isn’t doing well now. It isn’t easy.

    USAF grey in Vietnam

    Before anyone gets too hot under the collar, Xtracolour comes as 16622 as a gloss, because it's preferable to apply decals to a gloss finish. All my SEA scheme stuff ends up with a matt varnish finish. Happy now?

    1/48 F/A-18E, VFA-87 'Golden Warriors'

    nice to see another build started and a great subject (being politically correct an "interesting" subject ). It looks like you have some nice goodies to go with her as well. Good luck with this build, it should be a nice straight forward one for you. 2 1/2 months should be plenty of time for you.....for me I'm worried!
  21. Mrs B is a good egg and sensible when it comes to judging Mr DB's efforts. I used a sponge and added the chipping that way. I used a Games Workshop silver colour which could be washed of with water if I put too much on. I then went over some of that with the green primer colour. Very effective it is too. Must note that in the modelling memory banks.

  23. don't remind me!!! I've go two monsters on the table at the moment that I need to finish!!!

    HMAS/m AE2, Scratchbuild

    Yes. the best of luck in the competition Steve. I feel this will score highly.

    1/72 Eduard Grumman F6F-3 & F6F-5 Hellcats

    if i'm correct (though often not), the canopy frames do overlap. When looked at side on the rear of the sliding canopy should overlap the front frame of the fixed section. There may have been or not a seal on the rear edge of the sliding canopy (in photo #4 in below link there looks to be a seal on the rear of the canopy). http://www.thescale.info/news/publish/Hellcat-Cockpit-photos.shtmlHellcat cockpit In the 5th photo you can see the faded painted section (it looks to be the original paint, they just re-painted her with the canopy closed) where the sliding canopy sits of over the fuselage. There are some fantastic detail photos on this site of a Hellcats undercarriage, I love the one showing the gears that rotate the main wheels as they retract. To be honest I never really though about how they did that!
  26. I've remade the steering linkages and scratchbuilt the rear dampers - two lever arm hydraulics and a whopping friction damper And now it looks like this...
