  1. That's a corking build. Nice detailing with the engine cowlings removed - it adds a lot to the overall finish of the model. Great job.
  2. What a lovely build! I think the chipping effects are very very effective... super weathering all round.
  3. What a lovely Spit. That's a great build, and it's really set off by the display. Lovely detail in the interior. Great work!
  4. That's a very nice build, well complemented by the diorama. Great work.
  5. That's a work of art. Absolutely magnificent. I doff my cap to you, good sir.
  6. That is absolutely gorgeous. Interesting info r.e. the canopy form, but it's not detracting for a luftwaffler like me - it's certainly good enough for the relative philistine. The painting is just spot on... how did you find the AK Real Colors?
  7. How absolutely lovely. Very very nice build - I've just picked one of these up, and having seen this am going to make a start on it today. Really very tidy build, and I like the subtle weathering. I think mine may well be rather more of a beater!
  8. That is tremendous. Really lovely build, and great paintwork. Nice to see something a little different with the flashes of colour.

The sliced hole was stuffed with plasticard, trimmed, sanded, filled, cured, sanded, filled, cured and finally sanded and polished. It's not perfect, but encouraging enough to try again, and possibly something a little more complex. Epoxy putty is on the shopping list... Again - thanks for the inspiration. I'll have this in RFI in the next w
  10. Buoyed by the general encouragement - off we go:
  11. What wonderful builds. Great job all round!
  12. Thank you all for such considered responses... I'm really chuffed you took the time to share your thoughts. The thought of surgery is a little worrying, as it's not something I've attempted before. However, I've just managed to scratch build a reasonably convincing (if slightly cartoonish) interior for Eduard's 1/72 La-7, and have rigged a couple of biplanes with no significant collateral damage, so perhaps it's time to take the plunge and break out the razor saw. Eeeek. On the other hand...maybe not. It's been great to read the differing perspectives you have, and am glad
