  1. Hi Niklas, I'm am unaware of places to get it locally in DK. I received my paint back when it wasn't a problem to ship, / Robin
  2. First of all, thanks to all for some kind comments! Highly appreciated, and motivating! Niklas, the blue colour is Xtracolors Enamel X030 RAF Roundel Blue. Fairly good match to SAS' blue. At least for me / Robin
  3. Thanks everyone! I was nervous about posting this here, as it was my first helicopter build. But everybody seems to enjoy it, and I can only say thanks for the kind messages! Cheers, Robin
  4. Hi all! Thanks for your really kind words! Would have loved to say that I had built the 70th anniversery, but I haven't. It's a Gemini Jets 1/200 diecast jet. But yes, I think you are right - the blue needs to be painted on by the looks of it! Not anything that I am competent of doing! Keeping an eye out for the -700! Thanks Ian. I used Xtracolor SAS Red X339. Primed with Tamiya Grey primer, then a layer of Humbrol 130, and then finally a coat of X339. The white coat is essential to get, what I reckon, is the correct shade. It can probably be done using a white primer, but I only had the grey one laying around. Hi Chris. Thanks alot. Yes, I've been doing gliding for 9 years. Started when I was 14. Unfourtunately I have som medical trouble at the moment, which has kept me on the ground. A bugger since I almost had my CPL completed. Niels Ebber,... his name rings a bell, but I don't think I have met him. Thats funny - you've more than likely passed right by that place I live. Cheers, Robin
  5. Lovely build! And great little collection there! Robin
  6. Hi Britmodeller. Zvezda's sublime 737-800 kit built OOB. As probably mentioned in other threads, this kit includes the correct shaped engines, winglets and correct height for the windows, as compared to the old Revell kits. It goes together really well. Added a wifi antenna. The reason for my choice of this livery, is because I flew this exact plane back in January 17', when I moved from Denmark to Northern Norway. Flew it from Oslo to Tromsø. Painted with Halfords Appliance White, Humbrol and Alclad. The always brilliant decals, are from Ruben, LN Decals. Genereally happy. A few mistakes here and there, but luckily we all keep on learning from our mistakes! Cheers, Robin Here sitting next to my other SAS builds/models.
  7. Hi Britmodeller. Revell A319 built OOB. The Revell kit is getting old, and this was a bit more of a challenge to build, since I recently built a Zvezda airliner. Painted with Humbrol, Alclad and Halfords Appliance white. Wonderful decals by Ruben at LN Decals. Relatively happy - never stop learning though. Enjoy! Cheers, Robin Robin
  8. Hi all. I haven't posted anything on britmodeller for ages. But here goes my first helicopter build. Revell Merlin built OOB. Painted with humbrol and clear coated with Tamiya rattle matt. Had to strip the paint off of the rotor blades a few times, as I rushed the masking.. Fairly happy with the result - I don't know if I will ever build a helicopter again. Who knows. Cheers, Robin Robin
  9. Well, I would suggest Gemini Jets for 'top of the range' diecast 1/200 models. They have a large selection, but are quite pricey as all their models are limited run (as far as I'm aware). Another great alternative will be Dragon wings. Herpa is also an alternative, but they focus mainly on 1/500 models. For plastic desktop models, Skymarks have alot of different planes and airlines. Hope this helps. Robin
  10. Hi all. Anybody aware if a Cessna 182T kit exists? Thanks. Robin
  11. Not entirely true... Minicraft 757 exists as well
  12. Nicely done, and really really clean paintjob! Well done! Robin
  13. Hi all! Thanks for all the nice comments! Tony, yes indeed, the decals are included with the set. Robin
  14. Hi all. Newest project has come to an end. Revell CL-604 Challenger. Great kit, added a few antennas, and an acrylic stand. Chuffed with the result. Painted with Humbrol, Alclad, and Mercedes rattle can clear coat. Robin
  15. Impressive paint job there!!! Nicely done, and great base as well! Robin
  16. Hi all! Thanks for the comments! TrojanThunder - sorry mate - I do not remember which colour I used for the engines! Robin
  17. Hi all. My most recent project has come to an end. Minicrafts little 737 kit is rather simple, but also a joy to build. Added antennas, and beacon lights. Decals are from Max decals. Paint from Xtracolor (Maersk blue) Humbrol ("Boeing grey", corroguard, nose) and Alclad for leading edges of wings and vertical/horizontonal stabilisors. Here goes: Cheers Robin
  18. Ah wicked stuff Keith! - and cheers! I need to get me education sorted out, and I've promised my self to get one, the day I get a job after my education! Hopefully, they've not all rusted away by then! Went to Beaulieu two weeks ago, and they have a few classic mini's in mint condition there! I love them! Robin
  19. Hi all. This is a first for me. My first model car. I usually build things with wings! The last half a year or so, I've really fallen in love with classic mini's.. As I cannot afford one at the moment, I simply needed to build a model of one! Not many BRG Mini's have the Union Jack on top, but I have seen a few pictures on the interweb, so I decided to go for it! Took a long time to mask off, but definately worth the time spent! I also challenged myself, by making an electrical circuit for lights. A little bit of soldering, and maths, did the trick. However, when I put the bodywork on the chassis, one of the wires snapped of the right hand brake light... Unfourtunately, I only discovered this, when the glue had hardened - bummer! Oh well, I'm pretty happy with the result. The paintwork is done with a cheap rattle can from Bahaus, and cleared with Tamiya's clear rattle-can. After that, it was handpolished with some ordinary car polish, and the job was a gooden. All chrome parts, have been painted with Humbrol gloss black, followed by alclad chrome. Great stuff! Comments appreciated! Cheers, Robin
  20. I've had the privelege of driving two! And I'm only 19! Ferrari California Convertible, and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti!
  21. Very nice build! I've had the pleasure of driving a real one, at work, and they are nice cars!! Robin
  22. Thanks everyone! I'm really chuffed with this one, and certainly won't be the last Zvezda kit I will be building! In fact I have a few lurking in my closet. Anyways, for the colours. I used Humbrol 196, which gives an alright match. Not sure if it's 100% accurate, but tbh, I'm fine with it! Robin
  23. Hi all. My recently finished 777. Great build, OOB. Decals are from Draw Decal. This particular jet, took me from Doha to Manila last november. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1620/26033842484_532f90c243_z.jpg[/img Thanks, Robin
  24. Thankyou very much everyone! Hi TrojanThunder - the stand is in fact from Zvezda's A320/A321 - I quickly realised that I'm running out of shelves that are big enough for this beast. Here the NAX Dreamliner is parked alongside a selection of prebuilt diecast and plastic airliner models. On the bottom shelf, I have most of my fighter collection. The two 737's are parked by my window. So, where on earth am I going to place the 777 when it arrives Robin
  25. Hell fellow modellers. I have finally completed my Norwegian Air Shuttle fleet. A project that has lasted me far too long. The first model being the Revell 737-800, LN-NOL, was finished back in November 2012. The -300 was completed back in January 2014. Now, two years later, the Dreamliner is complete. My target back in the days, was to model one of each plane type in the 2012 fleet. The -300 has now been withdrawn from service. The Dreamliner has switched registration, so its now on norwegian registration; LN-LNA, and accordingly, the 737-800 has changed from LN-NOL to EI-FHC.
