    Airfix product announcement at Telford 2018

    I see a camera dolly and track but no sound technician so that leads me to believe that's a film crew making stock footage for a publicity shoot or news story. Have worked with these kinds of crews lots of times. Would surprise me if it's anything modelling related. Jay

    Freightdog 1/72 Etendard IVP set, decals now also available

    Hi Colin, Any plans reissuing this conversion? Thanks, Jay
  3. What an interesting subject and fascinating history. Superb scratch build which deserves no demands attention. Most impressive about the model -I think- is the translucence of the surfaces, especially the control surfaces. Brilliant. I wonder what Fauntleroy Hubert Julian's mount looked like. Jay

    Looks like a Cadillac with wings on it. Beautiful and really really good work. Jay
  5. What an inspiring project. Really nice to see that great idea becoming reality. West Malling: nice memories but from a few years later Jay
  6. No. Well I tried to cook rivets in the past but try as I might they remain hard. I much prefer deep frying them -twice. Nomnom. But a plastic Mirage won't survive that. Getting coat already... Jay
  7. Will buy from both sources... UNLESS the Modelsvit iteration will turn out to be riddled with rivets -then I'd rather pass and wait for SH. I hope both will sell well though. Jay
  8. AT LONG LAST!!!! A Delta by a mainstream producer... And SO many variants represented. Thank you Special Hobby!! Jay

  10. Might be able to help you with one of wing sprues, from a Luftwaffe RF-4E. Will check in the morning to confirm one way or another.

    Congratulations Andrew - those two F1s REALLY look the part! The huge centreline tank looks particularly good on the F1. I had really wanted to finish on time, sorry I couldn't contribute more -was dragged away from the bench by events on which I had no influence. Jay

    1/72 Special Hobby Mirage F.1C

    Hi, The Mirages have been slowly edged on towards completion, but progress is far slower than I had wanted at the beginning of this GB. So this is where I'm at now: decals are on; a random mix of Carpena and Berna, most importantly Berna sheet number 72030. After a coat of decanted Mr Hobby Super Clear Flat I proceeded to generally air-dab the surface with different shades of blue-grey using the airbrush -I did that also in order to slightly dull the rather bright markings of the Berna sheet, to make the finish a little more representative of slightly worn aircraft. After that the surface was dusted with a cheap version of weathering powder from the chemist's. Also on are the main undercarriage legs. Not sure I am going to finish this on time. Changing work, questionable health, infighting siblings and family caregiving are putting too much weight on everything to properly enjoy stuff, so I'm not going to try to meet the date -if I do, then great!
