  1. Hi Russ thank you for the kind comment buddy Well remembered that man! Hiya many, many thanks buddy really appreciate it All the best Iain
  2. Wow that does look fantastic! It’s amazing how the medium of 3D printing has really opened up the possibilities in modelling, enabling almost anyone to produce some incredibly detailed parts that look so exquisite. It will be interesting to see how see turns out. All the best Iain
  3. Hey George Many thanks buddy - if you didn't already have 250 years of kits in your stash I'd highly recommend it!! Iain
  4. I honestly don't know I just went with what was in the box....looks good though Hiya Many thanks for the very kind words Brilliant!! Thank you Pete All the best gents Iain
  5. Hiya well that’s not a type that I’m aware of but I have to say to doing a pretty good job on putting her together. She will look good in the collection when finished. All the best Iain
  6. So here is where I'm at at the moment, the cracks have been filled, lightly sanded back and Mr Surfacer 1200 reapplied... Now to leave it for 24 hours to cure fully before I decide my next plan of action. Cheers all Iain
  7. Hi John Well it seems to work for Plasmo! Actually it seems to have worked for me too, its easy to apply and sands well too.. Hey Anthony Cheers buddy - hopefully I can make some real progress on my Phantom it been way too long since I did any work on her. Cheers gents Iain
  8. Hey everyone Well I can't believe that it's been almost a year since I did any work on my Phantom where does the time go? Ok so I thought I'd start off by giving her a light sanding in preparation for a touch of re scribing especially around the intake area's and I found that where the resin intakes join the plastic of the fuselage I have some cracking and its the same for both sides.... ummmm strange, I have in my arsenal some black, rubber toughened CA glue (I saw Plasmo use it on Youtube so I thought I'd buy some)... So my thinking is use some of this as a gap filler whilst giving a nice strong bond once dried and sanded back? I've never used it before so it could all go horribly wrong, has anyone else ever used this type of super glue? Anyway nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that I'll let you know how i get on... Iain
  9. Hey Andy Thank you buddy - its a real shame you can no longer get her in Germany because she deserves a place on everyone's build list (in my humble opinion!) All the best Iain
  10. Hey Dave Thanks buddy, there are things that I would've done differently but overall I'm pretty happy with the result Hi Chris As ever your kind comments are very much appreciated and yes Airfix really did a sterling job with this one - I enjoyed every minute of the build. Hiya Thank you - I'm sure Airfix will haver some tricks up their sleeves with this one, its too good a kit just to leave it with the two options you get in the box. Thank you As ever everyone's very kind words are appreciated. Iain
  11. Hey George Welcome back - long time no see. Well it’s plane to see (see what I did there) you still have it buddy coz that’s an excellent build, very well done mate. So what’s next in the build list if you have 250 years supply of kits in the stash you’d better get cracking and please do a WIP I enjoy watching your builds unfold. All the best from the other side of the pond. Iain
  12. Hey Chris Thanks buddy I really enjoyed building her Hi James many thanks mate - yeah I'm looking forward to putting the Phantom to bed! Cheers Iain
  13. Hi everyone Well I finally got her finished, my 1/48 Airfix Chipmunk. It really is a lovely little kit, well detailed, well thought out and well moulded for me it was a real mojo restorer after quite a long modelling drought. I built her OOB and only added some seat belts from Eduard, I finished her in the No 2 FTS colours as I think its the quintessential scheme for a Chipmunk. I'd like to thank everyone for their support and I think its about time I finished this old girl.. Cheers everyone Iain
