  1. Thanks Dave. High praise indeed, coming from the zen-master of top-notch finishes.
  2. Thanks Steve, I have just finished adding the red-brown to the turret, but I still feel that it would have been a close run thing. However, Mrs N has dragged out the painting equipment because the conservatory needs painting apparently (looks OK to me ), fortunately it is just one wall but it will take the rest of the afternoon, so that definitely stops the fun now. I will finish it over the next couple of days though.
  3. Thanks a lot chaps. I brushed the green camo on the hull this afternoon and I will be off to complete the green on the turret shortly, then I can make a start on the red-brown patches. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  4. I took Steve's advice and tacked on the skirts, exhaust shrouds and turret hatch using some Formula 560 canopy glue, then brushed on some thin coats of Revell Aquacolor Sand. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr I hope to have a look at making a start on the camouflage colours later.
  5. I've applied a couple of coats of Taniya Silver Leaf from a rattle can, once I've added decals and some matt varnish it should be a good representation of doped fabric and gloss on the nose panels will be a nice base for the metal panels. I have also had a test of the wing struts which will need some slight adjustment to improve the fit. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  6. @Johnson I have to agree Charlie, there are a lot of cracking builds in the gallery, with more that are being worked up, so it should make for great viewing if they are all finished in time.
  7. Will be even later starting now, I have to wait for Domi to get the rear fuselage items in stock.
  8. Great work H, I really the Tamiya F1 kits, the engine details are excellent. I can remember building their 1/12th scale boxing of Fittipaldi's Lotus 72D, it was a big beast and contradicts the widely held belief that I don't build anything bigger than 1/48th, mind you I didn't have a lot of shelf space left for books when it was finished.
  9. Thanks Steve, that reality check was just what I needed to put things in perspective. And so with those words ringing in my ears, over the past 24hrs I have gone from this since I set things aside... by John L, on Flickr … to this. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr I have to add the side skirts, exhausts and ancillary items like spare track links, cables etc., which I was going to leave off until the end, but I am not sure if those items would be fitted before or after the base painting and camouflage is applied. There is a building ban in force today, due to a little thing called a wedding anniversary getting in the way. Thirty-seven years THIRTY-SEVEN, and to make matters worse Mrs N retired from teaching this summer as well, so now I have to talk to her during the day too. Cheers
  10. Another cracking Seafox, both of them beautifully finished. I hope you don't mind me bookmarking your WIP for future reference.
  11. A lovely build, I have one in my to do pile and seeing this is quite inspiring.
  12. I apologise for the lack of updates on this build, but after the discussion re the drive sprocket colours I lost all enthusiasm for continuing with it, I thought that if the people who are regular AFV builders disagree on the colour then what chance do I stand as a novice builder, anyway I set it aside with the hope of reviving it at some point. I have picked it up several times over the last couple of weeks, taken the sprues out of the box and on one occasion removed some of the track links to start adding them to the side that has remained incomplete, but all to no avail and choosing to pack everything up again. This afternoon I have tried again, this time choosing to add a few parts to the turret, I think that I will take things slowly, hopefully rekindling the keenness for the build that I had at the start. by John L, on Flickr The chances of me finishing this for Sunday are very slim, but I hope that having now restarted I will feel that I can continue it and complete the build.
  13. Thanks for all of your generous comments folks, they are really appreciated.
  14. Thanks for the link Rob, I have bookmarked it for reference, it is definitely another consideration. I think I may have to trade Molly in for a guide dog when I have finished this build.
