  1. You Tube does have a limited amount of footage on the big railway guns, I too could do with a lot more info on the Sevastapol guns, my Dragon kit waiting patiently.
  2. This is a wonderful build, well done, the painting is spot on as well, Earthshock is one of my fave episodes.
  3. More work done. I now had a box of bits so that I could start the kit again, washing down, sanding, repairing torn corners and bent bits, all of my own damage on stripping the thing down. Mr Davros was pretty fragile, first job was in sanding the cut halves against a sheet of fine wet and dry paper sellotaped to my desk top. Davros was then glued together and I started work on the broken hand a resin head. I drilled out the detail in the head support and will probably drill fine holes to support the new head wiring. All of the skirts needed rescuing, all will be backed with plastic card and any gaps filled. After using my new Tamiya razor saw to take off the vac formed skirt supports: I used black plasticard to fabricate the new Davros base, this will be scribed to make fitting the adjusted skirt panels. Thats about it for now.
  4. Really impressive Don, I always wanted one of these, can't wait to see the final build.
  5. Licencing will always be a problem, although I would be delighted with Airfix re-releasing their Eagle and Hawk I wiould be just stunned if a company like Moebius took it on. There are loads of sites that have detailed shots of the Eagle, I tend to drift towards Martin Bower and Dave Sissons because they are so close to the people who really did it. There is a Warp 1/72 Eagle I believe currently up for sale on this site at a very reasonable price.
  6. This is a Revell easy kit on sale for half price due to a crushed box. I would love to say it went together easy but it didn't. Since all the parts were pre-painted great care was taken trying to "snap-fit" pose-able joints. Paint had to be carefully scrubbed off in most places and I finally gave up the chase and went for a full re-paint. All the open socket/joints were filled with milliput and smoothed over, an allen key was pressed into the centres just to tart them up a bit. The pilot is some kind of vinyl with some noticable seams, could'nt do much about it, even with brand new blades, so a new paint job was as much as I could do. The base was from an old toilet roll holder and a bit of polyfilla and a very light blue wash. I also added a little bit of scenics water resin.
  7. This was done a couple of years ago, there should be a little transparent disk on the front, made to replicate the little propeller spinning around, lost to the carpet monster. Its a nice large kit suitable for any level however you will need a superglue to cement it all together if you can't stand snap fit.
  8. You are a gentleman amongst gentlemen. Yes absolutely, there was no front console with my kit and I could do with a piccie taken against a ruler for scale, any chance? Grovel grovel. Dave
  9. Lovely build, I think the colours are fine. Is that Blue on the nacelles a decal or paint?
