  1. Great build and looks fab next to the real thing!!
  2. Splendid model making. Love the subtle weathering and different tones of the camo especially given the scale of the kit as well. Top work.
  3. Nice work. I do like the Scooter, some lovely US Navy schemes out there.
  4. Superb and impressive model mate - very well presented.
  5. Very smart. I have just finished the Revell 1/72 version. Great kit. Phil
  6. Cheers bud, both are 72 scale. No WIP for this one. I have done WIP threads in the past but find that they take up quite a bit of time to keep on top of.
  7. So here is part 2 of my recent Luft '46 builds. Imagine, if you will, that Germany, during the dying days of World War II, was the first to discover the atomic bomb. With the threat of submarine deployed nuclear suicide strikes off the coast of American cities, the War in Europe was brought to a swift and terrifying stalemate. This allowed Germany to rebuild and re-arm itself. Aircraft that once were wooden wonders and mere blueprints suddenly became modern, sophisticated and deadly predators of the sky. Here we have the Arado Ar 555 advanced long range nuclear capable strike bomber. Improved jet engines now allowed this aircraft to strike any target on a global scale and with compete freedom. Advanced lightweight alloys were used in the construction, improving aerodynamics and range. Bold red tails signified this as a nuclear weapons platform. The dawning of a new age was amongst us..... My recent Luft '46 builds together: Cheers all, Phil
  8. I had this kit half built on the SOD for many months with no real inspiration to finish it. That is until I had a vision of this alongside another Luft '46 bird, both wearing similar post war themes of NMF. So here is part 1 of my recent Luft '46 builds. Imagine, if you will, that Germany, during the dying days of World War II, was the first to discover the atomic bomb. With the threat of submarine deployed nuclear suicide strikes off the coast of American cities, the War in Europe was brought to a swift and terrifying stalemate. This allowed Germany to rebuild and re-arm itself. Aircraft that once were wooden wonders and mere blueprints suddenly became modern, sophisticated and deadly predators of the sky. Here we have the Horton Go 229 advanced jet interceptor. Improved jet engines now allowed this aircraft to patrol the skies over Europe with compete freedom. Advanced alloys were now used in the construction. Cheers all, Phil
  9. Cheers bud, The Counter Invader looks superb in the SEA scheme - I hope that we will be seeing yours? Phil
  10. Cheers guys. Tamiya was straight from the bottle: XF52 Flat Earth XF61 Dark Green XF67 Nato Green XF85 Rubber Black Phil
  11. Just finished this one earlier today. The old Italeri B-57G kit with an Aires resin pit and replacement bombs from a Hasegawa weapons set. Raised panel lines were sanded away to give a better finish for the fuselage join. Little bit of re-scribe work on the wings for the wash to take. EZ line for the wiggly amps. Airbrushed free hand using Tamiya acrylics. Great kit to build and I have the standard B-57B kit in the stash somewhere as well. One more for my Vietnam collection. Cheers all, Phil
  12. Lovely build and a very nice collection. They look great together.
  13. Very nice, the squiggles have turned out well.
  14. Thanks chaps. The kit wasn't too bad to build although I did have to clean out every panel line and the fit of the canopy was awful. It isn't very clear either and was quite thick plastic. The cost of the kit is very steep and it was built straight out of the box. Didn't check it for accuracy.
  15. Cheers gang, I could be tempted to do another but in some kind of camo scheme. There are a huge number of operators of the type to chose from. I used XF16 - Flat Aluminium for the colour. Phil
