  1. I really appreciate the effort putting this together. A great reference all in one place! Thank you. David
  2. Thanks, Steve. The decals are mostly from an old Microscale sheet #72-514. The serials are homemade as I wanted to model 842 instead of 829 as provided on the sheet. The fin flash is also homemade on my inkjet as the Microscale sheet has red where it should be orange. David
  3. Depends how perfect you want it to be, of course that's a personal choice, but it looks fine to me albeit a bit clunky in detail. The one thing I would fix is the radome. It looks too short and blunt and more like that on the FAW8 that had a US radar and different radome. David
  4. That looks amazing. I agree with Mike - it looks much bigger than 1/72. Beautiful detail. That exhaust pipe really caught my eye. David
  5. Totally convincing. Looks so real in that setting. David
  6. Excellent result especially for such a small scale. David
  7. Well done. I haven't built the Typhoon but have done that Tornado F3. Not great but not a bad kit for its vintage. I managed to make my wing pylons pivot using pins. I love the scheme you painted her in. David
  8. Lovely finish on that. Especially the staining on the undersides. David
  9. This is Revell's ancient but still nicely detailed Mirage IIIE built as South African Air Force Mirage IIIEZ 842 of #85 Advanced Flying School in Pietersburg c. 1978. She is still wearing the badge of 3 Squadron in which she served until 1975. Comments and suggestions welcomed. David
  10. According to Bombing Colours by Michael JF Bowyer, production machines up to WD986 were delivered in this scheme. WD987 was the introduction of the next scheme: Medium Sea Grey/Light Slate Grey over PRU Blue in April 1952. Then in Jan 1953 the production shifted to overall silver. I don't know how long the earlier machines carried on wearing their original schemes. David
  11. Did she keep B1 config for those trials? https://www.2av8.co.uk/pages/xa903/xa903b.htm David
  12. Looks much bigger than 1/72. Nice to see some different markings on a 109. David
  13. Lovely. Such a classic shape and that livery looks just right on her. David
  14. Very, very nicely done. Didn't doing the red/white prop tips drive you nuts? David
