  1. Oh, that's very nice indeed. Are the flaps in the kit separate, or did you do the required work and pose them yourself?
  2. That looks very much like the sprues for the ESCI F4C /J kit. Ha, beat me to it!
  3. You build for pleasure. You've done a fine job and it looks good. I'd call that a win!
  4. Looks like someone crossed the MDD/GD A-12 with the Arrow from the Wing Commander games.
  5. Looks like someone got a variant of Clément Ader's Éole to fly. Without a steam engine!
  6. Do you mean to say you didn't sit on the pilot's lap, like Jean Wladon near the beginning of the Battle of Britain film? Lucky man, you! And some cracking photography to remember it all by.
  7. I did a Y-Wing a while back and sprayed it all black to start with, which made the pipework pop nicely when I put the lighter colour over it.
  8. There's a Red Pelicans shot here that may be useful: https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/view/1635587 Looks like fluorescent red to me, with silver tanks (with fluorescent flash), and the photo is dated as 1965. I note that the photo may not be used or published without permission. Presumably it's fine to look at.
  9. The Bandai/Revell B-Wing is 1/72nd scale.
  10. More than one? Wouldn't that be Overkill?
  11. The 4mm pen for €4.53 is a sight cheaper than €23!
  12. Blimey! I've just looked online and there's a stockist in Cologne (I live in Germany) selling the pens for €4.53 each. Even with postage, that's got to be a much better deal, surely?
  13. If that truly is a 0.7mm pen, I need to investigate getting one of those for masking canopies. *Brief pause for research online* There's a 4mm version too, which would be tempting for outlining camouflage boundaries. Non-splay tip, too. Looking at the technical sheet, it appears to be ammonia-free (though it's rare to find ammonia in much these days) so won't ruin any acrylics underneath. I need to find a nearby stockist, or it's a visit to the great South American river soon...
