  1. Just amazing! Wonderful work, the Viggen just suits the scheme, and modifications. Very impressive
  2. This is the Adventures In Plastic, formerly Imai's Thunderbird 2 hanger in 1/350th scale. The walls are injection plastic and the floor is card. I replaced the moulded on walkway rails with etched ship ones. With TB2 I made the legs out of brass tubes, engraved the panel lines, and cut opened the lower windows. You only get 3 pods in the kit, but I had a spare one left over from an old kit. Thanks for looking Angelo
  3. Cheers guys, glad you like her! Miko, the tune was going through my head the whole time while I built the model!
  4. Imai's 1/350th Thunderbird 2 Absolutely love the shape of TB2! Would love a bigger model of her, but space & wallet get in the way Touching down on runway 2-9! Collection growing, slowly. Thanks for looking Angelo.
  5. Lovely looking Jaguar! Great work, very impressive
  6. Superb! Really impressive looking Tadpole!
  7. Looking for some help/advice please I would like to convert the Airfix Fokker Friendship / Fairchild F-27 to the longer F-227. I know that they stretched the fuselage by 1.83m, but having trouble finding out precisely where they inserted the extra bit. Anyone have any information regarding this please? Many thanks, Angelo
  8. Revell's JU88 converted to a night fighter using the set from AIMS. Radar aerials are left overs from a He 219. Painted with Xtracolor enamels. A fairly straightforward conversion, new nose, and modified cockpit are the main bits. AIMS set comprises of resin, etch & decals. They include instructions on how to make the aerials, but I scavenged them from the Heinkel kit. Thanks for looking Angelo.
  9. The oleos do seem "uncompressed". I assume they looked at a museum based original and as they are in an unfuelled state they don't compress the undercarriage. It's a common error made by model companies, as most museum based aeroplanes do not have the weight to compress the oleos.
  10. Many thanks again for all your comments A bit of both to be honest. I pre-shaded the panel lines and used the stencils to apply a splatter of black before I started with the O/D. I then used the stencils to add various shades of O/D on top. It was my first time using the stencils so there was a lot of experimenting with them.
  11. Thank you all very much for all your comments & compliments, they are greatly appreciated. I actually used the Uschi van der Rosten splatter stencils to create the weathing effects. I used their Olive Drab, 361 as a base then faded it with light grey to get a worn and weathered look to it. Thanks again, Angelo.
