  2. Some of my favourite books are the Secret Project series by Tony Buttler, and taking these as inspiration I've built several FAA what-ifs . First up is the Supermarine Type 576 supersonic Scimitar , This was a 1959 proposal for a developed Scimitar with a extended thin wing , fitted with reheated RR RB146 engines and provision for extra fuel and Firestreak or Redtop missles. Projected data gave a speed of Mach 1.6. Next up is my Hawker Siddeley / BAE Osprey FRS2, an imagined, in service P1154 RN developement. Hope you like them Andrew .

  3. Can't have too many of these on BM - Brilliant kit ! Treat yourself - you won't be sorry ! Finished off in the colours of the Rhodesian Air Force from the late 70's. The hardest part of the project was scratch-building the base. and the base........... Hope you like it. mike

  4. Hi everyone, Finished this this morning, been at this for a little while and rather ran out of steam/mojo towards the end It's the Hasegawa P-40e but I used montex masks to represent a Kittyhawk of 250 Squadron in 1942, first time using masks and had a few problems especially with the fuselage roundels. Also added an ultracast seat with British harness and a Rob Taurus Vac canopy was used for the sliding part of the canopy. Paints are Gunze, Tamiya, Citadel, Vallejo and the underside was a Tamiya mix which I then went back over lightly with Xtracrylics Azure. Some oils used to try and creat

  5. Hi All, Its the old Monogram Kit which I purchased and built in the 80's it cost about £5 way back then. Its looking a little worn now but its still shows off the sleek lines of the 'Voodoo' and what a brute of a aircraft it was. Pigsty showed his off brilliantly and what can be achieved with such a quality kit, and one which is still around to this day...I think. Brian

  6. Hello Finished another one, this is the Trumpeter Westland Wyvern in Operation Musketeer markings. It goes together really well, perhaps a little rivet heavy, but I quite liked the effect. I had my mind set on wings up as I figured it didn't compromise the lines of a not-particularly-attractive shape. But at the end, I really wish I had built it wings down, as I felt it lost some of its character once I had put the wings on. Hope you like it. Ian

  9. Having got the wrong end of the stick with my last answer , let me throw this into the pot......Could be the wing locking handle up inside the u/c bay with a visual "Window" to let the ground crew know what position it is in....At least I have the right window this time??........Smudge

  10. Oh I see. I didn't realise that was a moving wing, a bit out of my era comfort zone. Thanks for the lesson.

  12. Oh dear, yes. For years Concorde turned over my house to get between airway and approach. Twice each evening, regular as clockwork, and I'd always look up at the weekend - never tired of the sight. And on the way home from work, there she would be, with tourists photographing her madly. It was often easy to forget that only a very few places had Concordes going over daily and to the rest of the world - the rest of the country, even - it was a very rare treat. Plus, Nimrods. I left Cornwall more than twenty years ago and the Nimrods didn't stay much longer after that, but I still miss the

  14. Mike, do as I have and ask to be put on his pre-order list. There isn't anywhere to actually pre-order on the website as he won't do that until he's happy with the kit.

  20. Had a few hours to try to finish. Close but no cigar... Just the canopy and it should be r.f.I. I replaced the gun barrels with brass tube. Had a night mare with the very Fiddely undercarriage. Lost the seat belts about five times, but i am happy for what is my tenth kit to date. Learnt loads along the way. Hopefully just time to finish off properly before baby comes. Thanks for looking. End in sight?? Kevin

  31. I will be doing the same on all of these models, except on some I will be using flat strip instead of rod, like with the Dart. It is a lot easier than it looks. A lot of my first models, back in the 1940s, were stick & tissue flying models. They were a lot of fun to build & particularly to fly. Some, when they could no longer be easily repaired, had one last fiery flight from the 3rd floor of the family home.Some spectacular wrecks that way. Carl T

  33. Talk about real life (or whatiffery) following art.... Whilst the model is still a fantastic piece of invention and skill, I'd take issue with the extra cream banding and the black outlining. By the time the Routemaster entered service Chiswick had standardised everything for each model (RT, RF, RM) so as to reduce the range of spares as much as possible and this applied to panels and beading. Black outlining defeated the object of the Chiswick and Aldenham spray booths and had the trolleys survived, even the older vehicles would have had the extra creambands and the outlining removed. The

  34. First of all - wow! Thanks for the interest everyone! Regarding ID Vacs, I have build many basic vacforms over the years, including some from ID Models, and have completed the Lancaster in 1/32nd scale: This model was also incredibly basic, and as others have said these types of kits provide a blank canvass for the modeller to make of it what they like. I must admit I enjoy vacs more than any other medium; they test and develop your skills no end and provide a wonderful opportunity for some good old fashioned scratch building work, which the Lanc above was about 75%! I find them much

  35. I have lots of customers who have actually built these models and turned them into some truely amazing models. Yes granted they are basic and this is their attraction for it means they are a blank canvas which you the modeller / Artist can do some magic. I make no excuse for the fact of their basic nature, they were all made by a few individuals who wanted one for themselves then made them available for others to buy and build. Plain and simple what pleases some may not be others idea of a modelling challenge. Regards John Tom I am going to watch this one closely too.
