  1. Nice. It looks a lot like the Fujimi kit, actually.
  2. Please don’t read any criticism into my comments, I was speaking from a genuine lack of knowledge! I’ve done a little digging into the Flying Tigers on the internet, where everything can of course be taken as the absolute truth... my knowledge up to this point was limited to Commando comic books way back when, etc. Interesting story. For example I didn’t realise that by the time all the red tape had been cut through, etc, Pearl Harbour had been attacked and US was already at war. Two MoH’s as well. More digging required. You’ve inspired me to build one myse
  3. Evening All, The second of my two RAF jets is a Tamiya 1/72 Tornado F3, the Air Defence Variant. This one uses the Model Alliance 'UK Air Arm Update 2006-2007 Part IV'. The aircraft is ZE734 of 111 Sqn from RAF Leuchars in June 2006 in the 90th Anniversary Scheme.
  4. Evening All, This is one of two recent builds I have completed depicting RAF jet fighters, I used the Fujimi 1/72 Phantom FGR2 kit which was pretty easy to work with. It just needed a brace across the airframe to ensure no gaps between that and the upper wing surfaces. I decided to depict the FG1 aircarft XV571 using the colour scheme from late 1986 from Model Decal set 89. As you will see this has the black and white check on the tail only. Enjoy.
  5. Lovely piece of work. I’m about to start work on a Revell 1/72 hunter. I’d be interested to know what colours you used on the inside of the air intakes?
  6. I was just about to post my own effort at the identical aircraft - but using the Airfix kit. I'll leave that for now - not sure it will do well in comparison. This is good work indeed. I don't worry about your English - it's a lot better than my Turkish (and my English for that matter).
  7. Fantastic work, sir. How long did that take you. How much of the detail is aftermarket or scratch built?
  8. Interesting. You make it sound on the one hand extremely easy and then on the other incredibly difficult! Not sure i’m serious enough a modeller to invest in all the peripheral equipment. Thanks for the offer. Perhaps if find a suitable subject, i’ll take you up on it in due course?
  9. This is nice work. Aside from anything else you have to admire the detail in such a small subject. i’m going to show a lot of ignorance now. This Is a Flying Tiger? I always thought they were P40’s rather than 81 hawks? Clearly not...
  10. Yeah, should have known that - you can see this is very slick. Agree on Revell kits. I recently built the 1/72 Richthofen Eurofighter and I have the Hawker Hunter and Tornado on my ‘next to do list’. All are (or appear to be) well engineered, as you say.
