  1. That's beautiful work - the injection-moulded Lancaster was a struggle; to take on a vacform of this size and produce such a marvellous outcome is a tremendous effort!
  2. I tried this, too. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line something became glued and I needed a lot of filler on my GR4!

    Tornado GR4 - Revell 1/48

    Thanks. I've gone with RAF Dark Camouflage Grey - it looks about right.

    TIALD pod colour

    I assume the ladder colour (and other GSE) is the same colour green?

    TIALD pod colour

    On further examination, it seems to be a dark grey (camouflage grey?).

    TIALD pod colour

    Thanks, Dave. The one that was on the aircraft when I flew in it was definitely a shade of green, so Green BS 381c - 241 would seem to be the go.

    Thanks, Selwyn!

    TIALD pod colour

    Does anyone know what colour the TIALD pod carried on the Tornadoes was? I know it's green - an idea of what shade would be great. Thanks!

    F4-J Phantom II 1/48 Academy

    Phabulous finish and one of the best schemes the F-4 wore, IMHO.

    1/48 MBB BK-117

    It's coming out nicely! I'd love a B-2 or C-1 to do in the (then) Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service colours when we were sponsored by AGL. Maybe one day someone wil give us a kit in 1/48 that covers a few versions. Even a BK117C-2/EC145 would be nice.
  11. Already posted here but it's in awesome company in this post! Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster B.III (Special) from the original Grand Slam/Dambuster boxing.

    Tornado GR4 - Revell 1/48

    Anyone have any idea what colour these are supposed to be? I know they're green - an indication of the shade would be nice!

    Looks like a C-1 - are you modelling it as one or modifying it into a B-2?

    Tornado GR4 - Revell 1/48

    Back again! Now that the tail and wings are assembled, I'll leave the elevons off until after painting, along with the exhausts - less masking that way! I've also been working on the pylons and stores. One of the fellow-modellers at Aussie Modeller kindly donated the fuselage pylons I needed (thanks again, Ash!) and I'm utilising the outer pylons Shaun casts. I've raided the Airfix kit I first bought for the Hindenberg tanks and BOL missile launchers, too. The BOL rails haven't come up too badly with the etched metal rails fitted. I'll probably need to do a bit to the aft section, though. Flap assemblies will be painted separately before fitting to the wings. The whole lot will be getting a coat of paint before too long now. I'll be using the Sky Shadow pods from the Revell kit for the outer pylons.

    Tornado GR4 - Revell 1/48

    No chance of binning it but it is a little frustrating! One of the fine modelers at Aussie Modeller just sent me the arts I need for the British Tornado pylons, so I can move on with those, too.
