  1. It's a kit with quite a history, see mine in the inspiration gallery. Originally Kitmaster Rosebud, NEVER released by Airfix, the tool was thought to be lost - possibly in a fire. Here's the potted history, complete with typos. Dapol uses re-cycled plastic and has an exchange contract with their dealers on a full-kit basis only, My kit had a damaged windscreen surround, only noticed AFTER I'd started painting. Fortunately the broken part was still in the bag, and I was able to repair - BUT check the parts carefully @Enzo the Magnificent And let me know if you want half a tin of Deltic Prototype Blue paint.
  2. Airbrush, yesterday the underside with Humbrol 247, with some XtraColor Azure blue - I'm running out of 247. Today Humbrol 246 for the medium grey. Then Humbrol 241 for the green camo pattern, with XtraColor RLM 70 for the tail bits.

  4. Very good to see this Special Hobby Mirage F1, and it looks very good indeed. I've just bought the South African AF version of the same kit - and am looking forward to building it.
  5. I've got the HobbyCraft app on my phone, and registered my details. Around my birthday, I received a £5 voucher, by Email. Brought an Academy Catalina from £21 to a very acceptable £16 - Thanks.
  6. Gutted, Loved his show whilst driving home. Taken from us far too early - RIP. My favourite character was Sid the Manager. Top Professnial.
  7. The printed seats are good for the F-14A, and that Phantom, but are Mk 14 NACES for the F-14D. No face curtain handles, and very similar to F-15 Eagle seats. I'm enjoying watching this build.
  8. Kit built during Christmas Blitzbuild. With nothing else eligible to offer - could I be removed from the list.
  9. For @heloman1, Revell Hunter converted to a GA11 And I'm likely to join this GB with a Revell RAF Hunter FGA9. And for @Jb65rams, and @PhantomBigStu two copies of the Revell Scorpion. Then for @UberDaveToo, my Italeri Hustler. And for @Enzo the Magnificent the Mighty Deltic!
  10. Engines fitted. And I know that comparisons are being made with the Italeri 210, so here are both together. Showing the wing sweep difference.
