    RIP. Meatloaf

    I thought he was talking about building a Starfix kit.....

    Oh no ! Now we'll never find out what "that" was !!!! "I'd do anything for love, but I won't do that..."
  3. Still only half a job at best ! The maIn components are all fairly simple, so yes it may well appear to have materialised out of thin air, but in truth I've only glued 10 pieces together
  4. For all that we may regard the 2 colour plastic and lack of detail as simplistic, there are some things this kit does right which many today don't. Take for example the horizontal tailplanes - 2 identical looking pieces, easy to get the wrong way round or out of alignment. But not with this kit ! One side has 2 lugs and the other only 1, which slots into the gap between the 2 on the other piece. Simple, but effective.
  5. You wait ages for a Buckeye build , then 2 come along at once... Where to start ? 'Basic' doesn't begin to cover it. So its time for a few random splodges of paint in the cockpit to approximate instrument panels (not even a decal provided). Going for the red and white T-2C Navy trainer scheme.
  6. Thanks for the clarification.
  7. Always good to see a Beaver.... New 48th Buc will go down well with a lot of folk. The one thing that left me scratching my head though was the scale of the starter kit cars - is 1:43 normal in the model car world ? That, and the 20% mark-up on the Victor......
  8. I passed on it first time round when I thought £60 was a bit steep.... can't say I'm inclined to rush to get one at £72 !!
  9. May I be the first to say.... NICE BEAVER
  10. Academy 1:300 XB-70 Valkyrie. One of the few Valkyrie kits that will fit on a shelf ! Picture posted purely as evidence that I actually finished a kit in 2022
  11. Once upon a time there was a 'Less than a tenner' group build. (well, 2021 to be exact ). There was a dismal attempt at a cheap-as-chips Academy 1:300 XB-70 Valkyrie, that sort of got given up on due to hiding behind the sofa from coronavirus. But in a valiant attempt to finish it off, I've added the wheels, slathered it in paint and stuck some decals on. The best thing I can say about this kit is ..... it doesn't take up much shelf-space ! Certainly lived down to 'less than a tenner' expectations ( pictures a bit blurry, but you try catching it at mach 3 ! )
  12. Many months later........ It's finally finished. In 2022.....
  13. But on the other hand... Ranger Seven of Nine.....
