  1. Please add me to the list Stix. My candidate is this Jet Provost T.4 starter set purchased from Lidl just before Christmas for the princely sum of £4.99. by John L, on Flickr
  2. Yes Charlie. This Lancastrian will be back in Yorkshire on missionary work again.
  3. Cheers Charlie. I finished the upper wing rigging last night and I'll try to sort out the cockpit screen tomorrow, and maybe scratch some simplified radio equipment for the observers station. I won't be around for a short while, we are off to Richmond for a few days - a birthday treat from Mrs. N..
  4. Since the last update I have fixed the gun and mount in place and started work on the decals, adding the walkway lines to the lower wings and completing those on the fuselage. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr The fuselage has had a satin varnish applied and I will apply a matt clear to the fabric covered areas. I have also started on rigging the upper wing prior to fixing this in position. But before that happens I will need to add the forward screen and possibly the rear canopies. by John L, on Flickr
  5. Hi Steve, I apologise if my flippant remark has caused offence, it wasn't my intention - hence the laughing emoticon. I found the thought of you giving yourself a good talking to amusing. And my apologies to Worms for the thread hijack.
  6. My apologies guys, I completely forgot that the results were due to be posted. Well done to all the winners, and to the hosts for running a fantastic group build.
  7. Come on Steve, get a grip. Why would you want to dispose of your ships when they turn out as good as. Looking good so far @Worms
  8. Thanks Steve. I am desperately trying to keep in front for you matey.
  9. Cheers H. to rescribe the lines on here I have used a Tamiya Plastic Scriber, which is great where access is easy but where things are tight, like the fuselage to wing join, I've used a rescribing tool from Trumpeter. Thanks for the kind comment Col. It doesn't look that tidy when you are close up to it mate, but I'm sure that some superglue and a sand will sort out the areas where I have overrun or made a mistake.
  10. In between working on the Seafox, I have managed to squeeze in some time on my Draken build, doing got most of the planned rescribing of the major components yesterday. The fin, outer wings and inner wing areas of the fuselage halves have all had the initial work done. Once I have finished the upper and lower fuselage sections I can wash the parts, prime them and fill and repair where needed. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  11. I find them useful for what I do Chris. Personally I try to make sure that I start with a good image then refine it a little, and usually that involves a closer crop with a tweak of the clarity.
  12. Great work S, it will be a good representation of what is actually there when you get the canopy on.
  13. Cheers Charlie. I'm pleased with the way it has turned out, but there won't be much on show once I fix it in the fuselage. When possible, I try to take my photos in natural daylight and we are fortunate that we have a conservatory that I am able to use for that. I generally use a Sony 90V camera for most of my model photos and occasionally I will break out my Canon DSLR, but in general this does the job well enough. With the above shot, I tried a few snaps from different angles in natural light first which didn't bring out the coloured details too well, so I added some fill flash and that did the trick. It was edited with Flickr's online suite of tools, with a simple crop and a touch of sharpening.
