  1. That is one of the best builds of this kit that I have seen, loving the added detail inside. Absolutely brilliant.
  2. 1/72 Airfix EE Lightning F.6, XR761, 56 Squadron, RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus, 1975 Flown by Wing Commander A L Blakely. The Airfix Lightning and indeed the Lightning itself need no introduction. Here is my representation using Tamiya paints and decals by Xtradecal. A Flory dark grey wash was used to highlight the panel lines and you can imagine that a Wing Commanders aircraft would be kept pristine! I have added etch ejector handles and also the twin whip aerials using sprue. With so many lovely schemes available for the Lightning you could keep yourself busy for many a year. Cheers all, Phil
  3. Excellent Harrier. I was in Belize in '93 as well with 45 Commando. We were in the South though and only ever saw RAF Puma's.
  4. I think that I have just done a little wee with excitement.....!!! Scratch building a capsule has been on my to do list for years...!!
  5. What a lovely looking beast, very nicely done buddy. I built the '72 version ages ago and even that is some size - this one must be massive! The cockpit looks especially nice.
  6. Nice looking build. I have built 2 of these and they are a great kit.
  7. Absolutely lovely. Very tempted to jump in on the GB - I am a GB virgin, be gentle.....
  8. I don't envy you building this kit. It was the most horrible thing that I have ever put together, a huge amount of work needed throughout the entire build. My WIP thread went AWOL when the idiots at photobucket messed everything up all those years ago. Good luck with the rest of the build buddy, keep a few cold beers to hand for when you need a break....!!! Phil
  9. That is a fab little build and the history surrounding these types of missions is second to none. Great work buddy. Phil
  10. Now that is rather splendid. Superb paint application and the detailed weathering and chipping really bring the whole thing to life. Have a virtual pint on me!
  11. That is a superb build mate. Looks nicely weathered and worn without being too excessive. Perfect lighting as well for your photos. I had left the forces before this became operational so never did get to fly in one, gutted.
  12. You have certainly done justice to one of the most iconic aircraft to ever fly. Outstanding job mate, a joy to look at.
  13. I have just started watching Das Boot on SKY and now have a fascination with U Boats...!!! Your 1/144 is the perfect size for a first build and you have done a superb job of it. I love the sea worn look that it has - even the stand as well...! Nice one buddy.
  14. Looks great in that finish. The -66 is a good sized model too. Your diorama really brings the model to life, nice work Macki.
