  1. Looks great! If I manage to get over my current T34 fixation I think I'll go for an IS-2. Bookmark duly saved for reference later!
  2. Another outstanding build! Great work Andy.
  3. Fabulous! Beautiful. I had one - not nearly as good - that a colleague accidentally knocked off my desk at work. If I do another one then I know where to look for inspiration!
  4. Looks great! I might get one to practice some techniques on, can always use more practice! Good work!
  5. "Sentries report Panzer IV's to the southwest. 6 of them." Great builds!
  6. Nice, flying aside, just being within drooling distance of an idling Merlin is a treat!
  7. Cheers Simon - it was a great experience. As it happened myself and my dad turned up at Fantasy of Flight on the very last of business in their current guise and the owner (Kermit Weeks) was wandering around talking to people. I suspect that may have been standard practice though as he seemed a very friendly bloke! We were all gathered on the taxiway, right up close to the P51. We were just warned not to touch it as it they'd spent all morning polishing it! Kermit wandered over and spent about 10 minutes explaining how to he came to own the P51, what it was like to fly, etc and we were gently ushered back as he fired it up, taxied it past us and then took off! For someone used to UK airshows with miles of barriers 100m from the flightline it was amazing - not a hi-vis jacket or fence in sight! After a few low passes he lands, stops it in front of us and then passes on a bit more info - great experience.
  8. While not as dramatic, I lost post of my left index fingertip to a necrotising infection, which did require a bit of a rethink with fiddly bits. Hope you can manage to find a good way to get back into it.
  9. Great recovery! I've seen the refinished 1:1 scale flying at Fantasy of Flight in Florida. Yours is a great likeness. I've done the Academy kit too and enjoyed it.
  10. Wow! Amazing work - really dynamic presentation
  11. Very nice, lovely clean finish. Sorry to hear about your accident, hope recovery goes well.
  12. Great work! As the owner of a 1:1 scale one in red I might well be tempted by this! To be fair my 1:1 scale has required a bit of bodging so hopefully the kit won't be beyond me!
  13. Great finish on the camo - I find it very hard to do a convincing whitewash type finish, without it looking like I've tried to do a flat white finish and failed! Yours is just right!
