  1. Fantastic! Which shade of Alclad did you use?
  2. Excellent job! I've not long bought one. How was the cutting of the sponsons, does it need much filling afterwards?
  3. Excellent conversion. I have about 200 diecast models and was always the plan to sell them again once I had made the same model in kit form. All still boxed in the garage since moving 6 years ago, need to dig them out and see what I need to thin out.
  4. A different scheme you don't often see . Sure this was an experimental scheme that was used on this 92 Sqn aircraft.
  5. The biggest issue was probably my modelling skills and running out of patience with it. The size was a bit of a battle as it was the biggest aircraft I'd attempted. As you can see from the photos, the canopy was pretty ill fitting, too big. Next time it will need a fair bit of grinding down or maybe using an aftermarket canopy frame to reduce the size of the lip. Fairly big gaps between the fuselage and wings and fuselage and the 'bomb' bay but on the whole not too bad. The stencil sheet for the smaller decals that was supplied with the kit is not very accurate for location so needed a bit of a guess and some extra homework to try and get them in the correct places.
  6. Here is my attempt at the 1/72 Airfix Hawker Siddeley Nimrod MR1 of 206 Sqn, RAF Kinloss in 1977. This had the Squadron emblem added to the tail as it was in the Queens Jubilee Review at RAF Finningley. I built it OOB just adding the 2 HF wire aerials using fishing line and the addition of 2 pitot probes. I added a bit of weathering and enhanced the panel lines which the aircraft on display wouldn't of had on the day as it would have been spotless for the review. Painted using Xtracolor and Revell enamels (I prefer the Revell SM301 white for spraying for some reason). Extra decals are from the Xtradecal X72080 set which has all the Nimrods from the 1977 review. It's a beast but have learn't a few things for the other one I have when I get round to it
  7. I've started mine, going to do the grey/green camouflage colours instead. Just hope it turns out as good as this. Seems to need a lot of filling.... Can we get a look at the cockpit?
  8. Here is my Airfix 1/72 Spitfire PR XIX, PS888 of 81 Sqn, RAF Seleter, 1954. Built OOB using Humbrol Enamels. Lots of these have been posted but it was a nice quick build and I'm please with the results.
  9. I'm using Xtracolor enamels too with the Humbrol Satin or Matt Cote, seeing this, will stick with them
  10. Really nice build, another I need to get out of the stash to build.
