  1. Head in the clouds.

    Republic F-103A Thunderwarrior, 1/72 What-if

    No need to apologise , I missed it first time round but glad I caught it this time. That looks more Thunderbirds than Thunderwarrior, love it and very nicely built.

    Nice decal work CedB, most of the digital inkscape malarkey went over my head though. I have started cutting long gangly decals into smaller manageable strips and it does seem to work, I have to do this as I cannot do Inkscape.
  3. That looks like a quality drink, how it can be mentioned in the same thread as Colt 45 and Bud is scandalous...scandalous I tell thee. I need to find some. Pete in Lincs is the beer delivery man, I need to have a word
  4. Yes, here-here, wonderful. I cannot argue with the man, definitely better 2nd time around. Are there any constants in modelling? There does seem to be a very wavy line on the matter.

    Yes, if you feel £40 is within your budget.

    Thanks will2017, a nice pic but I am past that stage now having gone for a grey nose area, your pic has a tinge of blue which I believe , for whatever reason is incorrect. Maybe the camera can lie, if one thing causes more discussion on any forum it is colour. If I am correct XG311 retained the short tail for a considerable time but XG331 most certainly has the more definitive tail. Whether the pre production batch were officially called Lightning I am not sure but they look like a Lightning and I think it has stuck. If I was to stick my neck out I would say , yes.

    Sea King question.

    Wasn't the new kit done with LIDAR, if so then it may well be the correct shape?

    Air Cadets 1/72 T21 Sedbergh - Finally finished!

    What a wonderful little build, looking at it it is hard to believe something so small could swallow up a whole year, but that is down to your attention to detail. Nice work Terry.

    Thanks Space Ranger.

    Misfit 2 is finished

    She has come together really well Pete, there seems to be a plethora of bits that I missed on the build but it all makes for a very busy scene. Nice painting and weathering too, rounds it all off a treat.

    Merlin Models did one, combination of Vacuform and white metal here; https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/merlin-models-english-electric-1-534815210 Never figured out how this site works but worth a look. Good luck

    Thanks Des, the folding rotors is worth consideration.

    Sea King question.

    Thanks andyf117, a case of pick your poison then! I am not too fussed about interiors other than cockpit as I want to put my time and effort into other more visible modifications but the Dragon option is now gone after your suggestion. I will spend this week while working away to read the posts you have linked to as Travelodge is not exactly the entertainment capitals of the UK. Cheers Gary
  14. The winch work and frame are bang on the money Hendie, superb, as for the poetry, well, they BM collective arn't Pam Ayres but they are arf funny.....

    Sea King question.

    Hi folks A simple question, if one would like to build a Westland Sea King HAS1 which would be the best kit as a starting point? The newer Airfix HAR3 boxing probably offers the best detail and quality albeit needing some modification, does the Dragon AEW2 have any merit as a start point? Also we have the old Airfix SH3D kit, had a look at the one in my stash and it looks OK for it's age and in detail is probably nearer a HAS1. What of the Revell offerings? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers Gary.
