  1. Hi Chaps, I have a Xtrakit Meteor boxing of the Matchbox kit, is this eligible to join? Cheers, Rob
  2. Superb build, you are on your way. I would now leave the canopy off while you apply a gloss coat. Check the gloss is compatible with your paint or crazing may occur, I know from experience that acrylic varnish over an enamel medium does not go well! Best rule of thumb is don't mix enamel and acrylic mediums. Apply the decals over a gloss coat to prevent silvering of the transparent part of the decals. I also recommend using microset and microsol on the decals as it will bed the decals down onto the surface. Once a matt coat is applied, the decals will look painted on. Rob.
  3. A couple of superb Thunderbolts there Steve, especially the SEAC one, which looks good in that scheme. Rob.
  4. Looks really good Andrew, the aluminium finish looks great, please may I ask the paint used? Cheers, Rob
  5. The Seafire is looking really good.....it should look superb with the rest of the camouflage applied. Rob
  6. Hi Robert, Count me in please, probably looking to build a Beaufighter or a Hudson, looking into the stash. I have been looking at a Sunderland, but never quite got around to spending the cash so far.... Cheers Rob
  7. Nice collection of Tomahawks, building a collection myselt too.....just finishing number 2...I have the Hannants decal sheet to work through Rob
  8. The Stirling looks really good. I like the finish you have achieved, it looks worn and used, but in proportion to the scale of the aircraft. Top job! Rob.
  9. Wow, a superbly built, painted and detailed Tempest. It looks fantastic! Rob
  10. Really good, neat looking plane . The rigging finishes the look of the plane off a treat. Top job! Rob
  11. Looking really neat and good Steve. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago in the LMS, along with the Whitley...I need Airfix to stop releasing all these good quality kits of subjects I'm interested in . Rob
  12. Looking really good Steve, a nice looking Stringbag. Rob
  13. Superb finish, love the attention to detail with the weathering and wear and tear. Rob
