  1. Gorgeous. Very nicely bashed into submission built. Cheers Gaz
  2. Crikey! It would take me 35 years to come up with anything half as good and detailed as this. So much to wonder at ! Well done. Cheers Gaz
  3. Very nice indeed, and obviously a labour of love. Nice to have a personal link to the subject aye. Cheers Gaz
  4. Sadly, New Zealand as a country didn't choose to phase out the combat force. It was an ideological rather than fiscal decision taken by the newly elected Prime Minister at the time, who was known to have been a student protestor at the dockside when the Skyhawks were delivered. None of this was signaled in the lead up to the election though. There's also a common misconception that she ditched our fleet of Skyhawks, when in fact it was F-16s that were really ditched, along with the Macchi 339s of course. I guess we'll never know whether or not we'd have ever been able to afford to keep them flying. C130Js have been publicly confirmed and luckily (with another election due this year) I think/hope there is cross-party support for replacing the 50+year old 'H' models. Gaz
  5. A gorgeous build of a gorgeous aircraft ! Thanks for persevering and allowing us to see this beauty. Cheers Gaz (2 yrs, VC10 Majors, St Athan)
  6. Simply outstanding work. Very well done. Gaz
  7. Evening All Being a fit 'fussy' if you like .....(I'm sure there are other descriptions others might use), I needed an opposition piece to go with my Matilda from a couple of months ago. So here's my latest subject, the Panzer III from Tamiya. A pretty straight froward build which I built as a subject of the 10th Panzer Division in Tunisia 1943. I sprayed the model with a base of XF64 before applying chipping fluid, and then the top colours of XF60 and 88. In keeping with the desert theme I kept my weathering to nothing but playing with varying the tones of the base colours and weathering powders. No oil wash was used. I was pretty happy with the control I had over the chipping, although I do go a bit deep now and again. I notice now that Tamiya have brought out a couple of new DAK colours which might have come in handy for this effort. Here we go.... Thanks for looking. Cheers Gaz
  8. Lovely Scooter, well done indeed. Cheers Gaz
  9. That's a really cool collection, and a diverse range of interesting schemes. Nice one Cheers Gaz
  10. I think that's what you call an attention getter. An interesting subject, nicely built, that's just a bit different to the norm. I look forward to seeing more of your work. Cheers and welcome Gaz
  11. Brilliant - an interesting subject, with oodles of patience and skill on show to achieve a stand-out finish. Cheers Gaz
