  1. Great work with such an old kit! The clear parts in the kit are a challenge - you did these very well. Cheers, Bill
  2. Such a beauty! Great to see this subject done so well. Bill
  3. Very impressive! The paint scheme looks fantastic! Cheers, Bill
  4. Very Nice! I have that same Printscale decal set and would like to it out with old Airfix kit! Cheers, Bill
  5. Thanks for the kind words on the shuttle build! The Avian Monster is about 18 years old. My wife and I hand raised him and an Congo African Grey from cute little hatchlings. Today, they are spoiled rotten feathered thugs that must be obeyed at all times. The Grey has a horrible potty mouth (picked that up from me) and started to pluck feathers about 8 years ago - she now has to wear a plastic cone (known as The Cone of Shame) to prevent further plucking - this has only increased her propensity for swearing. Do not get one of these creatures, they are very difficult house pets
  6. Thanks! The computer panel as a base really made the lighting possible, especially with the push button switches. Many thanks for having a look and commenting - this is really a great kit that goes together so very well.
  7. Fantastic results from such a very mediocre kit! Bill
  8. Thanks everyone for having a look and commenting! So nice to finally use that old computer panel! Cheers, Bill
  9. Almost complete now. Rear landing strut and a small adjustment to the display base and then done! I did not like how the paint dried on the landing strut and decided to clean it up and repaint. So, here are the final work in progress photos . Apologies for the quality on some of the low light images., I was trying to show the lighting. This is a great kit, well designed, excellent fit and impressive at 1/32 scale. Thanks for having a look! Bill
  10. Many thanks! Lego are great for things like this . . . . Bill
  11. Fantastic creativity at work there Pete - can't wait to see what this chimera looks like with some primer . . . . Bill
  12. Sensei Moa, It would seem that your wife has been sharing notes with my bride regarding gems and such! Single element carbon versus finely crafted styrene - there is no doubt which is more beautiful. If only I could get her to see the light . . . . . . Bill
  13. Thank you Sensei Moa for bringing a breath of sanity to a crazy world. Bill
  14. Nacelles now glued in place. Final wiring done. Gloss clear coat sprayed then set aside to dry overnight. Decals applied today and will let these set until tomorrow before spraying final flat clear coat. Attach remaining parts along with roof section and done! Kit decals are excellent!
  15. Nacelle to hull support structures now fitted in place. Wiring runs inside the support structures in channels carefully cut into the inside face of the parts. Many thanks for having a look! Bill
  16. So very nice! Amazing that this is a paper card model. Bill
  17. Thanks Michael - very interesting information on the original TV prop. Bill
  18. Such wonderful results with this old kit Sensei Moa - very nice indeed! A real inspiration for me to revisit this kit. Respect! Bill
  19. Tamiya spray paints were used for everything except the rear landing strut which I hand painted in a gold colour (still needs some chrome silver details). The Tamiya rattle can paints are excellent and provide a nice even finish. Much discussion about which colours are correct for this kit, I selected what looked right to me and am satisfied. Tamiya clear flat used to frost the inside of the windscreen and hatch windows to provide light diffusion of the interior lighting. Need to make final wiring connections and assemble the major components followed by clear gloss, decals and flat clear
  20. My Macaw Overlord has inspected and approved this kit for completion . . .
  21. Thanks Pete! I just knew that if I held onto this old computer junk long enough it would be ideal for some project . . .
