  1. Hi Steve its something that lets this kit down, and the after market parts are not much better. I used the foil that scalpe blades come in, I rubbed it down, then folded edges , and then used Tamiya masking tape to create the ribs. I found the foil better to use as its more playable, and works a lot better than just foil, especially when it needs to just fold out on the wings. Mike
  2. Hi guys I used aires resin cockpit and ejector seats, and engines for this build, with majority of my new favourite paint MRP, the figures are Reed oak of corse. Just a bit about the build represents IN FEBRUARY 2015 NUMBER 12 SQUADRON CELEBRATED ITS CENTENARY AND THE MARKINGS APPLIED TO GR.4ZA405 INCLUDING A PANEL LISTING THE UNITS BATTLE HONOURS. ALSO SEEN HERE IS THE SQUADRON BADGE WHICH FEATURES OF FOXES HEAD FAMOUSLY ADOPTED WHEN THE UNIT BECAME THE ONLY RAF OPERATOR OF THE FAIRY FOX IN 1926.

  9. I did think about using the OOB cockpit, even though it has some nice detail, but I wanted to super detail this one to blend with the detail being added to the rest of the kit. thank you for the comment Mike
  10. Hi Guys just thought after being asked many times to post some build shots for you enjoy Mike
  11. Hi Guys This is the , shown in its Italian markings. The kit is showing its age, but with a little TLC it can be turned in to a rather nice kit, I used the Aires cockpit, and wheel wells, along with Reedoak figures, and verlinden carrier deck trucks. Below is the back story An Italian AV-8B Harrier hitched a ride home aboard Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3) after six months of maintenance in the US. The Italian aircraft, along with its flight crew, returned to Grottaglie Naval Base, Italy, on January 3, after the six months of scheduled maintenance at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina, and two weeks of final checks and training aboard Kearsarge. Hope you enjoy Mike
  12. Hi Guys let me introduce you to the Tamiya F-16 CJ, the kit was dream to build no issues what so ever, this was also my first Time using MRP paints, and I have to say they are a dream to use, just brilliant. the kit has the Aires cockpit and undercarriage, and I used a reed oak fire along with a PG productions figure, the decals are from fox 1 vipers on guard. enjoy Mike
  13. Guys just want to say a big thank you for all the comments you have given me, thank you all Mike
  14. Hi Its the Orange line, I find them to be very accurate, but having spoken to a tornado technician, they used to use any grey spray can from Halfords for all the touch ups. the engines were the mew MIG range of metalizers Mike
