    Airfix 1/48 Meteor

    Well Homebee, a few Meteor Mk's are in the pipeline including a Mk.14, however good things take time and I have a small matter of T.7 Hunters and versions thereof to get done before as well as a few other small projects. Sigh............the full time job gets in the way a little but it does help pay the bills........ Ali
  2. That is a really nicely built and painted model, I like it a lot, well done. Ali
  3. Great little model, Duncan, well done I like it a lot. Ali
  4. Hi Guys Well at long last I have a solution for the undercarriage of this kit. As the brass caster was away over the Christmas holidays I could not conform before now. After a long contemplation I have decided to just cast up the kit internal parts that should have been supplied in metal, I think that this still offer better options for assembly and detailing should the modeller wish. Also a full set cast in brass would have also increased the price quite considerably, and the brass inserts will offer just as much support as a fully cast undercarriage part. These can be ordered as of now, although production is just commencing. Direct link https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/internal-undercarriage-set-for-hobby-boss-b-24-liberator cheers Ali

  10. My DWI Wellington now completed, great feeling finishing a model for a change. Conversion made by myself available at Aerocraft Models. http://www.aerocraftmodels.com Decals are from DK decals, excellent decals. see http://www.dkdecals.cz the ones used here are on sheet 72069, another DWI is on sheet 72063, however tail turret cover is slightly different, but the rest of the conversion is the same. I issue a warning though if you purchase one of these or both as I did of these decal sheets I know like me, you will be tempted to purchase more kits as there are some great options to be built. Pictures not the best as the daylight is not that great in Scotland at this time of year so had to resort to some 'lights' hope to get some better ones in a day or two.
  11. My two seaters will come with some decals. I am still deciding how best to sort and do variations / boxing or to do a few stand alone sheets.........I will see and decide over the next month or so. Ali
  12. I do not know exactly what Airfix has planned, but I know they do have quite a few versions / Mk.'s on the way in time, so from me it will be the two seaters mainly for now, as they are not venturing in that direction. I think that any of the more complex conversions maybe short lived in resin, however I am sure we shall see lots of detailing bits from the likes of Eduard etc. As of earlier comments about larger tanks and notched flaps, well those may not be in the first box release I am not 100% sure, so I may have not been 100% correct, however having the exhaust options caters for the more tricky of the areas to be changed, however we shall see what can be done as an interim solution re flaps and tanks if required.........maybe possibly........ Ali
  13. The kit will only appear in early January, I have that information directly from Airfix. Also a direct confirmation both sets of exhaust sections are being included with the first release, so a 6 a 6a and basically a 9 can be built from the box I hope to start showing some more work in progress on the two seater versions in a few weeks time, just working hard to finish of the Wellington Mk.VI conversion and another little correction set in 1/32 scale, then the desk will be cleared to make way for the two seat Hunter versions. cheers Ali
  14. Well now V.P. have you been stalking my threads and sewing some threads together.........................................
