  1. It looks fab in RAF colours, especially given that it's a 100 Group aircraft. Nicely done Sir.

    1/72 Airfix Sea King HC.4

    Superb build. As others have already said, it looks like the real deal.

    Sea Vixen FAW.2 - Airfix 1/48

    That is fantastic Jurek, very nicely done. That is a lovely effect on the faded upper paintwork.
  4. 1/72 Wolfpack F-5A - Skoshi Tiger - 65-10525, USAF, Bien Hia AFB, South Vietnam, 1965. In October 1965, the USAF began a five-month combat evaluation of the F-5A titled Skoshi Tiger. A total of 12 aircraft were delivered for trials to the 4503rd Tactical Fighter Squadron and after modification with probe and drogue aerial refueling equipment, armor and improved instruments, were redesignated as the F-5C. Over the next six months, they performed combat duty in Vietnam, flying more than 2,600 sorties, both from the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing at Bien Hoa over South Vietnam and from Da Nang Air Base where operations were flown over Laos. Nine aircraft were lost in Vietnam, seven to enemy ground fire and two to operational causes. Although declared a success, with the aircraft generally rated as capable a ground-attack aircraft as the F-100, but suffering from a shorter range, the program was considered a political gesture intended to aid the export of more F-5s than a serious consideration of the type for U.S. service. From April 1966, the aircraft continued operations as 10th Fighter Commando Squadron with their number boosted to 17 aircraft. A lovlely little kit, went together without any major issues. Airbrushed freehand using Xtracrylics and Vallejo paints. Phil

    MH-60S Academy 1:35

    That looks fantastic buddy, very nicely done.
  6. Cheers guys. I have a few more A-7 kits in the stash including Fujimi/Testors so it will be interesting to compare the shape when they are finally completed.
  7. 1/72 HobbyBoss A-7E Corsair II, VA-27, USS Enterprise 1973. Yankee Station. I know that there are shape issues with this kit but it's something that I can live with. The kit has loads of detail and is very easy to build. Decals were from Print Scale. Little bit of etch used. The Starboard TER is loaded as to not interfere with the Shrike. Shown here with an asymmetric load for an Iron Hand mission. The Combat Workshop blog planted the 'SEAD' for this build and loadout. Check out the site, some great info on there: http://thecombatworkshop.blogspot.com/2018/11/making-sure-your-7-is-dead-on.html Cheers all, Phil
  8. Nice build. I've done a couple of these and they are a great little kit.
  9. Never even heard of this one, what a fantastic looking aircraft and you've done and exceptional job of it.
  10. Where are the photos of the actual model.....? That is a some build you've done there buddy, absolute stunner. The engines are a work of art and the overall weathering is as perfect as can be. One to be very proud of.
  11. Fantastic paintwork - really impressive and looks fab.

    Anybody else 'obsessed' with one particular aircraft ??

    Firstly I just want to say what a great thread to start from the Mancunian Airman - good call. There are countless aircraft that I can choose from but the one that sticks in my mind the most is from watching The Final Countdown as a kid, the one and only Tomcat. The scene in the movie when they intercept the Zeros, combined with that livery sends me weak at the knees...…! Anything Hi Viz from the US Navy/USMC circa '65-'75 is in with a good shout too.

    F-117A Trumpeter 1:32

    Fantastic work - your weathering has really broken up the black and certainly adds life and realism to the build. This must be a massive model as the real aircraft is quite some size. Phil

    B-2 Stealth TESTORS 1/72

    Welcome to BM and what an entrance you have made...!! That is a stunning model and I can only echo what the other guys have said - absolutely superb model making - Love it. Very well done Sir.
