  1. I would like to add this AZ model kit as my second entry for the GB. I am not too sure about which scheme yet. I am wondering whether to choose one of the kit options, there is a nice Remembrance Day scheme of MJ627 emblazoned with small poppies, or maybe look around for an IAC example - MJ627 started life as an LFIX and was converted to a T.9 by Vickers to become IAC158. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr

    Thanks Ray, I have come across some interesting images of a couple of other Bu. No's with slight differences of this scheme, and one where the blue paint has flaked and peeled around the canopy and radome, but I have decided on a clean version for this one. US Navy CAG VAQ-140
  3. Another terrific result Cliff. Well done, it's been great following this one.

    I applied the last of the decals this morning and need to tidy a couple of areas before I start adding the final details. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr

    A really nice build Steve, it's a cracking scheme. You made some lovely models last year and I like your QinetiQ ETPS 146 too.

    Not too sure yet H. I like the look of the grey demonstrator on the kit decals, but Matterhorn Circle do a nice Swiss AF set with stencil data and canopy det cords.

    Great result V-P. Well done on finishing her.

    The kit has arrived, so here are photos of the box contents. It looks to be nicely moulded, though the surface is a little grainy, but a light sand and some primer should sort that out. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr

    Not a manufacturer that I have come across either Col, so the contents will be a journey of discovery for both of us. Searching the internet seems to show that this was a first foray into aircraft, other kits look to be military vehicles and MPK Modellbau are the parent company.

    This kit is now winging its way and should be with me by the end of the week, so just a placeholder for now. I'll post the box contents once it arrives.

    You may not have finished before the deadline, but that is a great effort V-P. I look forward to seeing it finished.
  12. Good job on restoring the rivet detail Cliff, and it is hard to tell the replacements from the original under the gloss paint.

    Thanks Patrice I realise that the gallery is now closed, and so I will not be able to post there. I am still trying to push for a mid-week finish though, because the Trainers GB starts over the next weekend.

    I've applied the first coats of paint to the detail parts (pylons, stores etc) today and then masked off the wing walkways in prep for paint. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr I hope to get a second coat on the details later, I also want to do a search for a typical stores fit for the limited number of parts supplied in the kit,

    Grumman Wildcat / Martlet (Old Tools)

    Well done Mike. That FROG kit has turned really well for its age, the Airfix Martlet is coming along nicely too and not that far behind in the build stakes.
