    1/72 Revell Concorde

    You're doing a great job Stephen - it is a horrid kit but you're conquering it! Keep at it Sir!
  3. Hello in the heat. After a weekend without running water in my cottages it was rather nice to come home to a sizzling hot appartment. I discovered a leaking water pipe in the kitchen last weekend, and had plans to try and fix it this weekend. But unfortunatelly I couldn't, and the problem was bigger than I'd expected it to be. Water has got in under the floor, so this week I'll have to contact my insurance company, and a plumber to fix the leak. We wasn't completely without water, we have our own well so we could get water in buckets. And we have a nice lake as well. We went for a swim on saturday and it was +28C in the lake. Rather nice I think. When we came home to the sizzling hot appartment yesterday I turned the blinds down in the livingroom so it would be possible at all to sit at my worktable. I've clued the fins and elevators in place. 070 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 071 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 072 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 073 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr You can see on the last picture that I did get a small crack at the bottom. But I'll fix that with Perfect Plastic Putty and some water later this afternoon. To be continued..... /Bosse
  4. Frustummery and vampiring: this has all gotten most Gothic hendie! (Why do I picture you looming over the bench swathed in black velvet and a storm playing upon the skylights?) Both virtual and physical modelling of the highest order - an elegant solution to the classic 'two-part rotor problem' re:Shapeways btw!

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 F-101 A/C «Voodoo»

    Yay or nay?! This position looks very attractive: What you think? Oh, my Little Black Friend brings me the new cutting mat:
  6. You must really like Meteors! The Matchbox kit is not the easiest to make but you have made a 'silk purse' out of it, well done for that. I haven't recovered sufficiently from my first attempt at one to start any of the others in my stash Duncan B

    I like that very much plenty of detail and nice subtle weathering The choice of scheme is very good as well, always liked that
  8. Nice work Steve, they're all looking very smart Were the Swedish transfers thicker than the others? When I had a similar problem I got hold of some 'Daco Strong', the nuclear option for melting the things down. It's great stuff (if handled with care) and has helped me out on a number of occasions.

    P 51 D REVELL 1/32

    Very nice build Is it just the flash effect of the pics that is causing the ghost image around the plane?
  10. Is this the Revell Monogram kit? It really has turned out very nicely. Duncan B

    Very nice build
  12. Delicious progress. Fascinated to see how this develops.

    Catching Pictures in the Air

    Pleased to hear the treatment went well Tony and I hope you're feeling better for it soon When my back first went back in the dark ages my GP told me that the problem was that we're not built to walk upright; it relies on pairs of muscles across our backs working together to keep us upright and, if they get out of sync, one will tear the other, or pull something out of whack Should have stayed knuckle draggers... The model's looking marvellous under the primer and the level of detail you're adding is, as always, superb. Good job that man!
  14. Habanero-plus on that Johnny. Could watch your colour-work for hours - gorgeous subtleties.

    Couteau Delta - Fairford, July 2018

    I haven’t checked, but I think best bet would by Syhart Decals, they have a large range of colourful French subjects.

    RIAT 2018 Friday, Saturday & Sunday

    Here are a few from Sunday. The weather was very kind again. Thanks for looking.
  20. The cockpit's looking good so far, but I have one small niggle with the voltage regulator. I don't think that the type in the kit was fitted until the MkV, but I could be wrong ( I often am ). The earlier type looked like another headrest fitted to the other side of the frames so was round and fitted on a square plate, hope I'm not too late for you to change it if you want to. Regards John

    Comanche RAH-66 (Tamiya)

    Don't see that bird too often anymore these days. My old man was a project manager during its formidable heydays in the mid-90's at the Pentagon. My only critique would be that it wasn't an OD green color as this is depicted.

    1/72 RS Models F-5A Lightning

    Hello @Roman Schilhart ... I have had a look through a few of my books. I think and state this is only my opinion. I think “Shark” actually flew with the 7th Photo recon. Group, 13th photo recon squadron out of Mt. Farm. There colors were red spinners and seem to match other aircraft from there. Heres a photo of one of the 13th’s F-5’s with the 13th’s P51 escorts. Caption for this Photo. And the P-51 escorts. I think its a typo that shark flew with the 12th PRS. Dennis
  23. Haha I thought the -47 in the background was a separate picture by itself! Jokes on me that's an awesome tweet man, even for 72nd. Hope my 48th monogram turns out as nice.
  24. I've built all and, although they require quite a bit of work, Particularly smoothing the rough surface finish, they turn into very acceptable models. I even converted on MB-5 back to an MB-3. And, as Andrew says, the Spiteful and Seafang look much better than the later Trumpeter kits. Peter

    David, great work,so far! Will be following your build closely as I have an RF-8A in the pending pile. The A model will be built using the Falcon conversion on the Hasegawa F-8E. Like yours, my RF-8 will be a VFP-63 jet, only from Tico’s/CVW-19’s 1968 Combat cruise to WestPac. Good luck with the build!

    Thanks David. I'm looking forward to getting into it this afternoon. I'll post some images.
