  1. Hey all, Whilst scrolling across Facebook this morning I happened upon this little message from the HK Models Facebook Page (Link for original post) Hopefully, judging from their current profile pic of a Phantom FGR.2 we may be seeing some large scale RAF/FAA Phantoms? Sam
  2. Hey all, Here's my latest build, the Eduard Spitfire IXe, and what a beautiful kit it is too! I've finished this one to represent a Norwegian Air-frame from September 1945 using the very nice Vingtor Decals. The kit itself is the weekend edition boxing and came with markings for a single Czech aircraft, however I didn't fancy the scheme much and thus went with Vingtor, who supplied this rather nice scheme with Norwegian-style tail flashes and spinner. What is of note is that the Weekend edition kit in this instance lacked any sort of stencilling which to be perfectly honest wasn't a problem for me as I found it quite nice just to get the major bits on then go from there! Overall this was a fun, quick and easy build with some stunning detail coming right out of the box, to finish it off I just added some of Eduard's STEEL seatbelts. Thanks for Looking! (and sorry about the quality of the pics!! ) Sam
  3. Doesn’t the saying go ‘buy it now, worry about where to put it later?’

    Yes please! If anyone could get a few of the revell stand, keen to see the Rebox of their tornado as a gulf war airframe!
  5. I think this is a wise choice for Airfix, the pre-production shots are excellent, and if it’s anything like the ’Tiffie it’s going to fly off the shelves!
  6. I agree that it’s the airfix kit but I don’t believe it’s a hoax as it’s the official Facebook page for Trumpeter and Hobbyboss. What I think is that it’s the airfix kit they’ve used just to give an idea. What they have done however is blurred out anything around it that gives a sense of scale. Therefore I do think they’re doing a Vulcan only they’re rescaling it either smaller or larger because they wouldn’t of done that without a reason. Knowing Trumpeter’s idea of go big or go home I would like to hope that they’re scaling it up! Sam
  7. If it is a vulcan, and the scales in double and not triple figures I am most definitely in!!!
  8. Hi from another dweller of soggy kempston!
  9. Hey Guys, I have here IBG Models new Panzer III. It's not everyday you walk into WH Smiths and see them selling models so I thought why not I'll try something different. Construction was simple enough and with it being 1/72 and no running gear construction, apart from gluing it to the hull. Detail was utterly superb though, puts some 1/35 kits to shame... Painted with humbrol enamels and finished with a light weathering as well as drybrushing. Really enjoyable kit to be fair, and I've got their panzer II on the bench now! Thanks for looking guys! Sam
  10. Here's a few more from the collection, can compare it with everything from a Pz.Kpfw. I right through to the Tiger II! Thanks for all the comments guys, greatly appreciated! Sam
  11. Hey guys, This is Takom's new Maus, and it's a nice kit! Resembling something of an IKEA item, the vehicle is pretty much flat-pack with sides slotting into each other and the most complex bits being the running gear and track, where the track is made from 3 pieces per link and each piece is secured by at least six points connecting it to the sprue... The paint scheme is off the top of my head, a splinter camouflage influenced by an ambush scheme, then painted in Mr. Hobby Colours. The weathering was grimy enough as I created various airbrushed effects and then using oil paints, washed, filtered and streaked the rest. Thanks for looking guys! Sam
  12. Hey guys, Do excuse me if this is in an interestingly wrong section but the subject is rather broad. My models are stored in the room in which I model as there's no where else to really store them unfortunately. As you may know there's a lot of dirt, dust and stray paint particles thrown about in the average modelling den and because of this crisp, clear canopies are no more.The canopies look generically dusty, but I was fooled into a false sense of security before finding the stuff on them is stuck good. Before I wade in there with the big guns, I was wondering if you guys have any tips or tricks in restoring the sparkle to the canopies of these models? As I said, they just look dusty and dirty, so I'm just curious as to what voodoo you guys use to get yours clean again. Thanks Sam
  13. Impressive work! Making me want to get mine out of the loft... Sam
  14. Very impressive! Watched the work in progress and that’s a brilliant bit of work! Sam
  15. Following this! Brilliant work, I've got one in the stash at the mo and I'm thinking about the Accurate Armour Ambulance conversion. It'll be nice to see one of these not out the box! Sam
