  1. Thanks that's been rectified, thanks for the comments as well Mike
  2. that's been rectified thanks for the spot Mike
  3. it depends on what your after, if you take the Revell kit you need to throw a lot of money at it to get it to this standard, so you have to weight it up, with this kit you don't need to.
  4. Hi Darron thanks for your comments , sadly no I don’t have any all commission builds Mike
  5. The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine, variable-sweep wing multirole combat aircraft, jointly developed and manufactured by Italy, the United Kingdom and West Germany. There are three primary Tornado variants: the Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter-bomber, the suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance) and the Tornado ADV (air defence variant) interceptor aircraft. The Tornado was developed and built by Panavia Aircraft GmbH, a tri-national consortium consisting of British Aerospace (previously British Aircraft Corporation), MBB of West
  6. 1/32 ITALERI TORNADO Well I had to do it, just to see what it was like compared to the old faithful Revell kit. at first glance it's nice, but there are flaws, well there are with most kits, but when it's all new tooling, and such avast array of online images, you would think it's impossible to get wrong. so this is the cockpit OTB, with a few ANZY decals and switches, but the ejector seats are from the kit, I also opted to use Tamiya tape for the seat belts, as the PE supplied is thick, and not very pliable. any enjoy landing gear is next. So new pics of the build so far
  7. He’s a tip on canopy masking this is what I do any way when You mask run your blade around the frame then use Matt varnish to make a barrier and to give the rest of the canopy an undercoat, something for the paint to bite on. then use a very fine coat of undercoat I use the inner canopy colour. then a fine coat of the main colour leave it to dry for 2/3 days the masking should come off leaving a sharp edge mike
  8. 1/32 Tamiya A6M2b Zero “Red Sun Rampant” The Battle of Rabaul, also known by the Japanese as Operation R, was fought on the island of New Britainin the Australian Territory of New Guinea, in January and February 1942. It was a strategically significant defeat of Allied forces by Japan in the Pacific campaign of World War II, with the Japanese invasion force quickly overwhelming the small Australian garrison, the majority of which was either killed or captured. Hostilities on the neighbouring island of New Ireland are usually considered to be part of the same battle. Rabaul was signif
  9. Dick thanks for the comments, its been painted over, so you can just see minimum red under the green, thats what the client wanted Mike
  10. 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire “Grey Nurse” Robert Henry Maxwell Gibbes, DSO, DFC & Bar, OAM (6 May 1916 – 11 April 2007) was an Australian fighter ace of World War II, and the longest-serving wartime commanding officer of No. 3 Squadron RAAF. He was officially credited with 10¼ aerial victories, although his score is often reported as 12, including two shared; Gibbes was also credited with five aircraft probably destroyed, and a further 16 damaged. He commanded No. 3 Squadron in North Africa from February 1942 to April 1943, apart from a brief period when he was wounded. Born in ru
  11. 1/32 Tamiya A6M3, this is 2 kits combined the 2 and 5 it wasn't that hard as Tamiya made sure the fit is impeccable to allow this to be completed and only a little surgery was needed. this is all painted with Mig Ammo paint sets, enjoy Mike
  12. 1/32 Tamiyia F4 Phantom VF-33 TARSIERS The main build was OTB, apart from the ordnance which is Eduard, the pilots are resin figures and the yellow shirt is from Reedoak. Many of you will know my preferred paint is MRP , just because it drys really quickly, and allows a lot more applications of weathering than other paints. The decals are from MILSPEC, which I have to say were very nice to work with. And on this occasion the base was built by my good friend Mario Catania, he’s very good , you should go over to his face book page and see what he’s doing. Established i
  13. 1/32 Tamiya F-16 “DARK FALCON” "It’s a longstanding tradition within the Belgian Air Force to have an F-16 Solo Display Team perform during the airshow season. A legacy worth preserving. Once every two or three years, an experienced F-16 pilot is selected to represent the Belgian Air Force internationally. From 2018 onwards, for the next three seasons, Senior Captain (Sr.Cpt.) Stefan Darte will perform at airshows all over Europe with a freshly painted F-16AM." ‘Vador’ "Very early in his career, his fellow student pilots gave him his nickname. It was obvious that hi
  14. Whistling Death. It just sounds badass, doesn’t it? The Corsair, as the F4U built by Vought, or its identical twin the FG-1 (made by Goodyear), is one of the most iconic fighters of World War II. It could out-climb, out-run, and out-fight any propeller-driven aircraft it faced on the opposing side. Known for its distinctive design and huge propeller, the aircraft was also known for the peculiar sound it made at a higher airspeed. In order to keep the Corsair as aerodynamically clean as possible, designers made sure there was nothing protruding into the surrounding air to produce additiona
  15. Thanks Guys for your kind and honest comments Mike
  16. Steve don't know what to say, but thanks for the comments Mike Gas thank you very much my friend Mike thank you Alan Mike
  17. Hi no I don't do this full time I have a proper job, this is just my hobby, that I enjoy tremendously. Mike
  18. Hi Chris thanks for the comments, I know the build that was at telford, the main issue on the fit is with the intake, as won't fit with out major filling and sanding, also under the belly its just not nice, again filling and sanding. this kit is very old, and it shows that when the tooling was made its just not up to todays standards. Mike thanks John Mike
  19. 1/32 A7- Corsair finished build complete, I used the verlinden navy carrier tractor, Reedoak’s figures and Eduard MK 84 bombs, along with resin electronics bays and wheel wheels, it’s a pain to build, but over come it and it’s a nice model, painted with MRP paints, this isn’t it’s true base she will join the F-14 Tomcat and F-4 on the carrier deck I built for a collector in London enjoy.
