  1. I'd agree with on the stencils to an extent, but whilst these ARE starter sets you can't get the F-18, F-16 or F-15 as anything else - so you have no option of buying a more expensive kit with a bigger sheet. A few more for the weapons etc. would be nice, but more options really should be included for £19! What I don't understand is why they've removed the option to make a F-16B - when the parts are in the kit?! But like you said, it is a starter set and I guess you get what you pay for (or not). One thing I hated in the Eurofighter starter set though was that they didn't even in
  2. Thank Gents! No it's a pretty poor show for a such a large kit - I can possibly understand only one option but not stencils or anything? I had to pinch the ones for the sidewinders from an old Harrier kit.
  3. Okay okay, I know it's a Viper... This is my attempt at Airfix's recently re-released F-16A kit - all be it as a starter set. Overall not a hideous kit, asides from the raised panel lines (which I removed) the only let down is the appallingly small decal sheet. As ever for me, brush painted with Hataka blue-line acrylics. Cheers!
  4. Hi All, I don't seem to recall ever posting a W.I.P. on BM, which is very remiss of me, so I thought I'd share my current build - Airfix's 1/48 Tornado GR.1 in the 'Desert Storm' Boxing. It's a kit that doesn't seem to have much of a good reputation. the fit is indeed awful, but so far I've enjoyed it - so much so that I've ordered another GR.1A, a GR.1B, a GR.4 and an F.3... It's been pretty much OOB, with the addition of a PE cockpit, and although I've kept the raised panel lines on this one I have rescribed the missing detail along the seam
  5. That was a great help - thank you. I'll have to see if I can find anything suitable and have a play.
  6. Thanks Gents - some really useful and interesting suggestions with some differing ideas. I did wonder about using 'Milliput' or Citadel 'Greenstuff'.
  7. Any thoughts on how to replicate the 'swing wing boots' (I'm sure they have a more technical name) on a 1/48 Tornado? I was thinking of using foil or some such material - The Airfix kit has a rather nasty looking gap aft of the wing that I'd like to try and sort out - I'm not after Mega-accuracy but it's be good to have something.
  8. What a blooming awesome looking build - lovely work thus far! The little bits you have to move might be annoying, but given the standard of your work elsewhere on this, I'm sure you'll get it all sorted out!
  9. Many thanks Dean - just what I needed. I have to say having read through your whole thread - that was an awesome bit of work and a fantastic looking model! Stuart
  10. Hi All, Does anyone know much about the SEPECAT Jaguar? I have the Airfix 1/48 GR.3 kit (Hence why I posted this in Modern not Cold War) and I'd like to backdate it to a pre-Gulf War GR.1 Asides from not fitting the over wing pylons/Sidewinders, does anyone know of any other majour visual changes between the two marks? Thanks for your help in advance! Stuart
