  1. No worries, this is still a very cool plane. Though I do think the Sabre Dog is definitely the regular Sabre's ugly cousin!
  2. I was looking at it thinking, what seam line? Nice work on that!
  3. I've been racking my brains and Google and it looks extremely likely that Buccaneer XV361 from 208 Squadron took place in a 16 aircraft flypast for the Queen's Birthday in 1993. It flew from RAF Manston for this flypast. This is the only possible contender I have in the stash. There is no photograph with the Queen looking at the aircraft, but I think it's a pretty safe bet she saw it? If anyone can shed any further light on the matter it would be appreciated!
  4. This is brilliant. Even without paint the flag looks like it is blowing in the wind.
  5. Tidy work Bosse. I love it. You absolutely need to get that in the gallery!
  6. Yeah you have to do something.... we need to see that awesome camo scheme weathered and complete! Can't you use the old not screwdriver method and then hide that bit with some mud or something?
  7. Great model. I have decals for a HAF Phantom in the stash and every time I see a build like this it reminds me I need to buy an F-4E (1/48th scale for me) Where do people keep 1/32 jets???
  8. Looks like this one will make the gallery with the extension! It's looking great Jason.
  9. Yeah maybe the paint wasn't mixed properly. You could try stripping the paint, or even if you mix the paint better and do a respray on top it could react with the existing soft paint and cause it to harden properly. Or it may just ruin it completely...
  10. I don't have any specific experience but I think it's best to wait a bit longer and see if it dries. Maybe somewhere a little warm or something. I can imagine that if you put something else on top of tacky paint , the clear coats may also be compromised. Sorry probably not telling you anything useful but I've been too keen to spray and finish in the past only to wish I'd give a little more curing time.
  11. I remember when you started this WIP an age ago, I followed it for some time but must have lost track of it at one point. Great to see those done! You've made a fantastic job of them both!
  12. A lot of the 1/700 scale Tamiya ships come with airplanes too. These would look like roughly 1/72 scale on the table.
