    That is incredible! Looks far more lifelike than actual ones!!! Brilliant!!!
  7. Did my annual trip to Gatwick last Thursday, great if you like easyJet...... I'd say about 75% was EZY, 15% Norwegian, 10 for everything else!!! Probably would have been better if they were taking off, but landing wise we only saw one TUI, one A380, no American or Canadian stuff, ugh, should have gone in the summer i suppose!!! Thankfully it was quite sunny for the most part!

  8. Morning all, This is my first attempt at an airliner, its the Revell Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, done as JA842J using 26Decals set, as that was the one i flew on to Tokyo in February. The actual kit went together really well and the fit was good. I decided to use putty through the windows and sand down.Wish id sanded down the cockpit glass more, it looked ok until the final varnish then looked a bit "sticky outy"!!! I broke one fan blade on each engine before trying to get them off the sprue, wish id realised how flimsy they were! I had issues with the decals(probably more user error to be fair) as a few bent over on themselves, which was a pain, as the rest went on really nicely. It doesn't have the bumps and aerials, so maybe ill look at getting some aftermarket ones....Its a damn sight bigger than my usual fast jets, but was nice to do something different My muse waiting at Heathrow B787 JA842J London Heathrow 24.02.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J-2 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J-3 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J-4 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Was fun trying to get the whirly decal on...... :mad: Revell 1.144 Boeing 787 JA842J-8 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Thanks for looking Jon

    Zurich weekend

    Hi, Had a long weekend in Zurich a couple weeks back great place, superb for spotters with several purpose built areas around the airport, all with decent facilities A few pics, weather was mostly sunny, but did get some mist on the Saturday morning which made for some different shots!# A330 HB-JHB Zurich 06.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 HB-IJR Zurich 05.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 HB-JJM Zurich 05.10.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A330 B-8589 Zurich 06.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 HB-IJI + A330 HB-JHI Zurich 06.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A340 HB-JMI Zurich 06.10.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr CS300 CS-JCA Zurich 06.10.18-3 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B787 HL8082 Zurich 06.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A320 OE-LBP Zurich 07.10.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Fokker 100 HB-JVE Zurich 07.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr B787 A6-BLS Zurich 07.10.18 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A330 HB-JHR Zurich 07.10.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A330 HB-JHB Zurich 07.10.18-1 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr A340 HB-JMI Zurich 06.10.18-2 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Thanks for looking, loads more in Flickr, and some video here: https://youtu.be/DPzRhNTxwQU https://youtu.be/KAUUgrPnbOc https://youtu.be/QjQnCGW0qxk Cheers Jon
  11. Thanks Tony. Yeah was my local as a kid so spent many a happy hour watching the seemingly endless procession of Hawks! Usually have one on the go whilst doing another kit! That is gutting, so many what ifs!!!
  12. Morning all, Another pair of Hawks for my Chivenor collection, this time two 63 Squadron machines as 151 Sqn was getting ahead!! Both were airbrushed, (first time using proper airbrush) and have Master pitot tubes, and were finished with Xtradecal markings/numbers/letters, which was particularly challenging with the tiny reg serials on the grey one!! Have bought some canopy masks to try on next ones to see if that improves things in that area!!! First up is XX248 in camo scheme. This is a standard Airfix Red Arrows kit, so no weapons etc, and was built and half painted as a red arrow when given to me, so camo seemed a good idea to try and cover the red!!! (Gun pack borrowed from the one below!)

This is the latest Airfix Hawk kit, which still has some of the flaws, biggest annoyance is the 151 SQN jet they give you the decals for never made it to T.1A standard, being written off before the upgrades began!!!

  13. Beautiful builds, right up my street! The Fujimi Phantom is a pleasure to build i found
  14. Wow!!! that is incredible, beautiful build

    Airfix 1:72 BAE Hawk T.Mk.1A

    Absolutely stunning! I'm on my 8th Chivenor Hawk and I don't have any even a quarter that good!!!! I've just started the same one and 2 things of note, the air intake instructions are still wrong even after all these years and XX353 was a very odd choice as it was written off in 1983 so never became a T.1A!!!! All those others they could have chosen Beautiful build though, can't believe how good the canopy alone looks, very jealous!!!
