  1. Yellow wings look spot on. Which make and shade did you use? Terry
  2. Some right proper modelling going on here Bill. Plastic card, Tamiya ET, jigs, knives, measuring and Mk 1 eyeball .............. right proper indeed! Most impressed. Terry
  3. That's fascinating, I just looked back and read dana's explanation. I must admit I had not considered that demarcation between paint layers could cause that level of airflow disruption The white aluminium looks super slick Bill. Will you lay on an undercoat of some kind for the yellow wing tops? Terry
  4. Oh well, a very small matter that no one would notice, had it not been mentioned! I've made far more obvious "misrepresentations" with decals in my time, I can assure you! Terry
  5. Beautiful decalling Giorgio. And you will be sure to get those nose wheel door numbers the correct way round now, won't you? Terry
  6. Hi Rob. I discovered this build in a bit of a roundabout way, in that I saw the pictures first via your Flickr feed! That of course, made me start looking in the obvious place......... A great start on what looks like a superb little model. Starling certainly do produce some beautiful maritime kits, credit to you @Mike McCabe. And of course, any maritime build worth it's sort on here will always attract some incredible colour dialogue from @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies which is fascinating reading in itself. Your description for matching to PB10 sounds very interesting Jamie! I know so little about maritime colouring, but always learn in these threads. I'll follow along, as your maritime builds are always exquisite to view Rob. Actually, all your builds are! Terry
  7. Excellent recovery on that IP Steve, well done! Seems that these annoying little hiccups come to us all during most builds. Actually with me, it seems like every build! Terry
  8. Really nice line up of Tomcats. I like my US Navy aircraft in the old Light Gull Grey/White schemes, but these pictures show that Tomcats look good in all grey too! The VF-111 shots actually look as if they may have been in the older scheme? Terry
  9. I stumbled upon your WIP on this very recently, and was still tabbing my way through that and already I find this RFI! The build is absolutely superb Mark, and executed with such speed, yet at the same time incredible expertise and precision. I do like everything about it, but must mention especially the paint finish, and in particular how the red fuselage looks so realistic. Red is a challenging colour to apply, and can often look too bright, or simply just wrong. Here you have it spot on. And as for the rigging.................... just amazing! Hats off indeed!! Terry
  10. Great pictures Upnorth! @giemme might appreciate the Turkish F-4. Terry
  11. Absolutely beautiful masking there Guy! Terry
  12. Oh dear Bill, sorry about little Dexter. Hope he and you shake this off soon. What amazes me about this virus, is that when I had it (not as bad as you it seems) we decided not to isolate from each other during my quarantine, and ate, drank, slept and generally lived life together as normal, yet Mrs T remained completely unscathed, even though she almost tried to catch it, to het it done with! That was last April. Then last week we had our boosters, and I felt like the world was ending for 48 hours, much much worse than the real thing for me, then felt totally fine. PNuts virus! Get well soon both! Terry
  13. Wow, your cracking on with this one Guy, really starting to look the part. You may have said, but are you doing a sea scape or freestanding on the plinths? Don't get too excited Stuart, the Vosper has only just been on the go for 4 years so far (and a mere 10 pages), although I do hope to become a serious competitor with Steve @Fritag and his Hawk builds one day. Sadly I think I'm way off that in the elapsed time/page count equation that measures true masters .......... Terry
  14. Just had a massive catch up and can see that Swordfish is coming along beautifully Chris. Your invisible thread tightening technique, using a soldering iron, sent a few shivvers through my bones (a sort of reverse pun there) at the thought of being so close to all that plastic! You must have very steady hands. Terry
  15. Actually I was slightly unsure on the grade suffix so I left that off hoping no one would notice. Could impact my membership of the guild of glass graders I fear ..... Can I also join the merry gang of curve admirers ...... assuming it's legal for folk of my age? Terry
  16. That looks pretty neat Stuart. Love the finish. Terry
  17. Looking very bright and neat. Should be an eye catcher in the blue/green/grey water! Terry
  18. Now THAT is what an F-111 should look like! Brillant work, every aspect, just brilliant. Terry
  19. I love pies but not with beeswax on. When are they coming, and are we talking hot or cold? T.
  20. It would seem you are a master of the understatement, as well as master at 1/72 camo paint jobs. I'd say that there Hawk is looking bloomin good indeed. I can see why you would be, but go on, treat yourself to some much louder pleasure declarations Steve. Absolutely lovely job. So, red/white/LAG soon then? Terry
  21. Wow, that was a struggle and a half for sure, but the end result looks magnificent from here. Here being beside our little pond in the garden, talking to our friendly frog! Ever thought of making some resin casts of those wheel wells you jare making? I reckon there is a market for disgruntled Trumpeter Firefly owners! Terry
  22. Sorry to hear Covid has given you greif Bill, but sounds like you may be on the up. Ha! Tell me about that! I ended up vacforming quite a few new canopies for the Viking glider, having screwed up the original, and one or two replacements. The expert on this subject is young Steve @Fritag who has produced some pretty neat Hawk canopies, as I'm sure you may recall. It was that famous thread (you know the one) that was partly to blame for me acquiring a dental vac form machine myself. And I'm sure you once said you have a similar machine? Maybe time to make a buck before you ruin any single vac form you have? Just an idea? Terry
  23. Had a peek at your Thud Martin, see comments in the original RFI. Terry
  24. Just seen this Martin, via the questions in the Cold War thread. Has to be one of the best looking 1/72 F-105Ds I've seen. Superbly finished, and for me at least, ticks the very important "looks right" category. Nice one. Terry
  25. Very impressive engine work Alan. You, Tony, Steve, Johnny and Ian, all make this stuff look so easy! Terry
