  1. I’ll certainly be interested in this when it’s released
  2. I’ve now seen this up close and an Excellent build it is to Steve. Your usual high standards really show in this build, well done mate
  3. I snapped it in frustration a pure moment of madness
  4. Hi all Here is my Airfix 1:72 Avro Shackleton MR.2 ive finished it in the markings of WL737 of 220 SQD, Royal Air Force, based at RAF St Eval, 1953. using Model Alliance Decals, RAF Coastal Command, post war part 1 (MA-72210) The only extra detail I added was a PE instrument panel. tamiya paint use throughout apart from Halfords appliance white for the underside. This has been an enjoyable and frustrating build due to fit issues early on. thanks for looking Fit issues early on tested my patients to the limit I put it down walked away and went back to it a couple of weeks later and repaired my moment of madness And made good in the end
  5. The fit of the resin gun bay blanking plates was very poor had to do a lot of trimming and sanding to the resin parts. The under chin cowling wasn’t too bad only a little sanding was needed for it to fit. It was a challenge overall but I thoroughly enjoyed this build from start to finish!
  6. Hi all here is my recently finished 1:32 Supermarine Spitfire PRXI. The Tamiya Spitfire MKIX kit (60319) converted using Alley Cats PRXI conversion (AC32023C). Aircraft finished as MB948 “Oh johnie” based at mount farm Oxfordshire 1944/45 I added extra detail in the cockpit ie wiring and plumbing. Tamiya paints used XF-1 XF-16 XF-18 XF-71 XF-85 X-2 X-23 X-25 X-27 among others with Florys dark dirt wash and Humbrols weathering powders. Pledge floor care Windsor and Newton Matt varnish to finish Thanks for looking and Enjoy
  7. Hi All Here is my Airfix 1:48 Gloster Meteor F.8 I decided early on in the build that I wanted to do a Syrian Air Force example so obtained XtraDecal sheet X48158 Gloster Meteor F.8 Collection Pt1. I also used Eduard Brassin wheel set (ED648272) and Eduard cockpit set (EDFE765) and Eduard masking set (EDEX498). I used Tamiya paints throughout, XF-59 Desert Yellow XF-26 Deep Green for the upper side camo and XF-18 Medium Blue for the underside. I’m really pleased how this has turned out having tried new techniques which I picked up by watching YouTube ie preshading, lightening the base colours to give the effect of sun bleaching I also used Humbrols weathering powders also I used Windsor and Newtons Gloss and Matt Varnishes both thinned 50/50 with Tamiya X-20 Thinners. Many Thanks
  8. Very nice, did you do the markings yourself or are they aftermarket decals
