  1. very nice. I must build my Hobbyboss Kursk soon. That's a nice collection you have there.
  2. What an amazing subject and thank you for the historical overview which add value to the enjoyment of your model. Based on your overview, I am very glad I wasn't around in the Navy at the time and didn't get to serve on one of these....
  3. That's a very nice waterline diorama there. You have done a very good job and the sea effects are superb.
  4. I do love this. I confess to having spent hours playing call of duty with one of my sons years ago and one of the maps was based on aJapaneseSub like this so I have a basic insight to the subject. I've also seen a few documentaries about these subs and from memory, that the US captured one???
  5. What great work. I was enjoying the first few pictures thinking about how much effort must have gone in to the build and then I see the 50 pence piece picture and realise how small the kit is, and can really appreciate the detail even more. Tip top
  6. Wow. I am not really a ship modeller myself but this part of the forum has always been my favourite place, and your diorama is testament to why in my opinion. What a brilliant diorama. You must be extremely pleased with your work.
  7. Oh wow - another stunning build - I love it. You really do have a brilliant way of presenting your work - very, very nice
  8. never seen a BA S61N?..... you have sadly missed out there, they were wonderful and provided a real touch to any journey over to the Scillies back in the day before BA handed the route over.I made this years back to remember the experience
  9. Hi Eric Dad took his Command with BEA on these old girls Eric having to step back from Trident 1's & 2's at the time. He was very pleased to go back to props and enjoyed the twice weekly night stops in Gib or Malta while skippering on Viscounts. He used to race up/down the Mediterranean Steps on the Rock with his fellow crew during a turnaround in Gib in the days when they were on the Tarmac for 4 hours. Run a google image search on the painting called 'A Touch of Class BEA Viscount painting' for a trip back down a hot sunny Gibraltar afternoon memory lane. And yes Eric, this is a pro
  10. Wonderful model - so nice to see these old ladies still appeal to the modeller. Best choice of livery too IMHO Keep those 1/144 civil kits coming,
  11. 'Look out Port Stanley, here I come...' This looks stunning. Brilliant. What a belly full of trouble she's carrying. Beautifully presented. I am building the Trumpeter 1/200 Blue Steel variant so your model got my full attention. Tiptop General M.
  12. Hi Brodie - I think they (i.e. fuselage windows) are from 26Decals from memory, but I mix and match a lot of my civil decal sets are they do vary in quality. The front end flight deck decal was Authentic Airliners spare from their resin dash-400 kit. Thanks Alex - I know you and your civil models very well, glad it meets with your approval !
  13. Many thanks for the words Steve - I have enjoyed building the PH dinosaurs and GW Shark, but this was something very much more different
  14. Good to hear you have an original cast - there are too many rip-offs of the Anigrand kit ; both mine were originals but I did once see a recast for sale at a show and the detail was shocking and the colour of the resin gave the game away. looking forward to seeing your ISD made - Phil Flory of Flory models did a good YouTube tutorial of his build a while back which may help with yours
  15. good luck with their ISD - I had 2 in my stash and got rid of both in favour of Randy Cooper's alternatives which are bigger and better but far harder to build - I built one of Randy's original versions and then his more recent revised kits and both were real workshop assembly production line jobs
  16. 'The Emperors coming here himself? We shall double our efforts....' Top work there - which Lambda kit is it - Anigrand by any chance?
  17. This is fully lit inside but sadly I was in a rush between a house move when I photographed this and it remains boxed up and stored. I will picture it properly illuminated soon. The Squids eyes have been drilled out and a back-lit glass eye put in as a replacement, The diorama is supposed to look like its a good few leagues under the sea but not quite 20,000 as it would probably be pitch black down there that far! I am not sure if I am actually happy with this completed diorama but the model itself came out as desired using Alclad II Candy Crush and their Metalic colour range.
  18. Built last year to experiment more with Alclad II Candy colours over silver base coats, and with the addition of a pair of glass eyes, here is my attempt at the Pegasus kit. The figure and teddy bear are solid vinyl (as parts assembled using hot water) and the base is injected plastic. Sorry about the background but I pictured this in a rush before a house move and didn't get around to photographing it properly with a plain background.

  20. I've never seen the film, nor have any idea what this nasty looking creature is all about but I bought the kit just for fun to see what I could do with it. Pegasus supply all that you see here, base, rope rails poles etc. Like the Pegasus Hobbies GWShark and Dinosaur kits, the base parts are injected plastic, whereas the creature/subject is solid vinyl and needed hot water to assemble correctly. Built last year as a time filler between other more interesting things.
