  1. 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
  2. That was a great help - thank you. I'll have to see if I can find anything suitable and have a play.
  3. Thanks Gents - some really useful and interesting suggestions with some differing ideas. I did wonder about using 'Milliput' or Citadel 'Greenstuff'.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Love seeing those Matchbox kits built up - Superb looking build.
  9. That is a very nice looking build - Is it a Malta bird?
  10. Thanks Troy, That's some great information, and now looking at the model I can see exactly what you mean about the cowling and spinner - but like you said, it shouldn't be a hard fix. I was thinking of getting their old Seafire kit (which I think is based on the same moulds) and this'll really help. I do however, have the new tool Vb kit in the stash - which I agree is much more refined. Thanks for the link to the painting thread as well - I'll have a read. Cheers! Stuart
