  1. Some cracking builds there Chris, loved the interesting stufff, not the run of the mill aircraft, well done. All the best Chris
  2. Many thanks Bigbadbadge, much appreciated. Many thanks Corsaircorp, the thunderbird kits are by Bandai and a joy to build, plus they dont take up much shelf space. Many thanks Bertie Psmith, glad you like the bust, he was 31 when lost at sea, Tin Tin for now LOL All the very best Chris
  3. So 2021 a few modelling set backs and a hectic year. Heres my lower than usual offering for 2021 builds. 1) 1/350 Thunderbird 1 from that nameless movie. 2) Klingon Vor' cha cruiser with DS9 livery, lot more exciting than the plain Next Gen livery. 3) Some 1/700 USN Nuclear submarines, 1 SSN & 2 SSBN's 4) The Batmobile from Batman & Robin, experiment in gloss black and polishing, mixed feelings about the end result. 5) SR-71 egg plane with replacement decals from a BSG Viper, piloted by Lt. Starbuck LOL 6) A joy to build E-2 Hawkeye resin egg plane. 7) A build in two halves, the bust completed, submarine to follow for my HMS Upholder build. Happy modelling to all, all the best Chris.

  11. Its clearly stated on the IPMS webpage for tickets etc; COVID-19 – ALL visitors, exhibitors and traders to show a valid Covid Passport (or equivalent). From govt website; For domestic use For domestic purposes, those 18 and over can obtain an NHS COVID Pass if one of the following applies: 2 weeks after completing a full course of vaccination, whether that requires 2 doses or one dose (that is, 2 doses of the Moderna, AstraZeneca or Pfizer vaccine, or 1 dose of the Janssen vaccine) (according to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency authorised schedule). with evidence of a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or rapid lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of entry to a venue, with both at-home and on-site (where available) being accepted. A lateral flow test taken at home will need to be reported into the public reporting system proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period You must have been vaccinated in England, Wales or Scotland. If you’ve been vaccinated in Scotland, you must be both: resident in England registered with a GP in England hope this helps, as part of a clubs set up team we have to have valid covid passports. All the best Chris
  12. Just finished watching this series, it was worth a watch. As a submarine modeller i laughed my socks off at a lot of it, some really far fetched stuff in it. Typical BBC approach to anything underwater, like their mini series The Deep, reality takes a huge stretch to wormhole proportions. Heres a glimpse of the insides of a Vanguard class, note the hatch sizes LOL https://www.businessinsider.com/step-inside-nuclear-submarine-2016-7?r=US&IR=T As for the sail and the big gaping opening with a hatch and access tube you could swing your arms in, LMAO Well enjoy, all the best Chris
  13. Any chance of keeping the thread on track, the terms of entry have been posted, covid passport, no mention of further tests. With just over three wees to go, i am personally looking forward to going. If your going your going or not going. If you are look forward to seeing you there. Conjecture is best left to a seperate thread, i personally only want to read about SMW updates and who's going. All the best Chris
  14. Cracking job Hunter, love what youve done with this. Al the best Chris

  19. Very nicely done Brian, a cracking job. All the best Chris
  20. So calling this one done, Batmobile from Batman and Robin, 1/25 by Revell/Monogram. Hairystick painted gloss black, polished with Tamiya polishes, then sealed with a humbrol gloss cote. Not quite the flawless polished finish i was aiming for but, enough is enough. The perfectionist in me isnt happy, but the hairy stick modeller in me is quite pleased, so that will do. Biggest headache was the simulated light blue lighting and the overall finish as each affected the other. All the best Chris
  21. There are quite a few, i have listed what i know are available in various scales from Mikromir, Choroszy Modelbud, Italeri, Finemolds, Bronco, Mr X, Pavla to name the most known manufacturers. Germany - Biber, Seehund, Molch, Hecht, Seeteufel, Marder, Neger, Hai, Hase, Schwertal, Delphin, Grundhai Soviet - Siren GB - Welman, Sleeping Beauty, Chariot Italy - Maiale Japan - Type A, Type D, Kairyu, Kaiten, Kaiten II, Kaiten 10 All the best Chris
  22. There is no easy answer, it depends on what level you are going to build at. 1) OOB 2) OOB with Photo etch 3) with aftermarket and photoetch including opening out the flood holes. 4) super detailing As there are wooden and brass decks, 3d printed extras, various photoetch, resin detail sets, figures, resin pressure hull and so on. All the best Chris
  23. Lovely build Nelly, well done. Re your query about panel lines the Revell offering is not based on TOS Enterprise but rather the reimagined Enterprise used for an episode of Deep Space Nine called Trial and Tribbleations, which is how Revell got the license as AMT still holds it for TOS Enterpise. All the best Chris
  24. Firstly Martian, thats a fantastic amount of detailing, well done. Secondly regarding the rivets, have you done them as raised rivet heads? I ask this question as one of the findings of the Hunley's restoration is that she was actually assembled with countersunk head rivets, so the rivets laid flush with the surface of the sub. http://civil-war-picket.blogspot.com/2015/01/hl-hunley-scientists-peeling-away-crust.html Martian it is your model and your interpretation, i am always impressed by skills. All the best Chris
