    H builds “ Very small F14’s”

    I'm working on a WW I biplane in the giant scale of 1/48 at the moment.

    H builds “ Very small F14’s”

    I look forward to watching this one buddy. I have a few of these too, so it will be interesting to see what you do with them.
  3. PM sent Robert. Thanks again for proposing this GB and for gently nudging us along the way. A big thank you to Haynes Manuals for sponsoring the GB and donating the prizes.

    Frog Squad Model Kits GB 1/6 to 22/9/2019

    Sign me up for this one too Pat. I have just checked the stash and have stumbled across a Modelcraft Sea Vixen, looking at the fit of the parts it should keep me busy for about three months.
  5. After this great GB, I have had a week or so away from model making, which has given me some time to look back over the gallery pages. Once you start to do that you realise what an epic achievement this has been by everyone involved, not only in the range of subjects, but also the standard of the finished models, a great number are of a high standard with the remainder being exceptional, especially when you take the age of some of the kits into account. Well done to all. whether you completed a kit or started out with good intentions but then suffered from the type of delays that everyday life throws at us from time to time. I too would like to add my thanks to Ian @Lawzer, Mike @Ventora3300 and Dave @Rabbit Leader for keeping us on track and providing one of the best Group Build experiences I have had since joining Britmodeller. From a personal achievement point of view, I don't recall completing four models in a GB, and two of those, the Fairey Firefly and Avro 504, are models that I haven't built before. I am already stocking up for future Classic Kit builds and have HMS Ajax in the stash and @zebra's awesome airliner builds have led to me picking up two Airfix airliner kits that I failed to make in my 'youf', a Skykings boxing of the Caravelle and a Boeing 727 are winging their way to me, so it's cheers for that mate, I think . And a final word of thanks to all those of you who commented on, liked or simply dropped by for a look at my builds. Cheers All, it has been a blast. Regards

    Bristol 192 Belvedere

    A lovely piece of modelling and a great finish Z, well done bud. Yet another build that I have enjoyed dropping in on.

    Fokker F27-100 Friendship Aer Lingus

    Well done Martin, that is a fine looking model. I have enjoyed tagging along with this one, it brought back memories of my attempt to build it many years ago. I built quite a few of the airliner kits that Airfix produced, and it was these kits that led me into painting my models, my F.27 didn't turn out as well as this though.

    Coming along nicely Greg. Keep going mate.
  10. That is a cracking little model Smudge, I like the colours you have used on this and that is a great paint finish you have achieved.
  11. Looks like an interesting project @Paul821, I'll try to remember to drop by then I can catch up on your progress.

    1/72 Henschel Hs 129 - DONE

    That is looking the business Dermot, it will be good to see this one making it to the gallery.
  13. Tremendous looking model Mark, I like all the mini-diorama additions.

    Boeing 737-200 - FINISHED

    And you have every right to be Z, another great looking model and it shows that with a bit of work, this kit can still hold its own.

    That is a beauty Z. Watching your build has made me more determined to build this classic airliner.
