  1. Nice one. It must have been like trying to fly a hedgehog!
  2. Nice modelling but... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The Vulcan was an impressive aeroplane, but to me the DH Mosquito topped it for 'looking the part'. And I'd go along with other suggestions such as the VC 10 and Concorde - or even the early (Mks 1 to IX) Spitfires. Regardless, you made the dear old Vulcan look good.
  3. Hold on. 100+ in your stash to complete? I wouldn't do it. Think of all the added insulation required in the loft space if you start building them!
  4. Just had an e-mail with formal announcement of a re-decalled Wellington from Airfix. https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/vickers-wellington-mk-viii-1-72.html FatFlyHalf
  5. I tried one of these some time ago. It was a mess. A mixture of a really old kit that just didn't want to line-up anywhere and a ham-fisted modeller who ran out of patience (and skill). You've made the kit look really good. Well done.
  6. Agreed. You were right to leave the paintwork unsullied by a 'whitewash'. It looks magnificent.
  7. In particular North Wales Police are not noted for their sense of humour.
  8. Great modelling. Wondered where you had got to lately, missed your posts. Croeso y Gymru.
  9. In my humble opinion - absolutely and totally not. Aircraft generally do not have dark lines where the panels meet. Surfaces are relatively smooth and panels are close butted, overlapped or whatever to reduce any gaps. Panel washes on aircraft models are most unrealistic, and a modelling fashion accessory. But each to his own. If you want to emphasise something that at say 1/72 or 1/48 scale should hardly be seen, go ahead, it's your model.
  10. Better than I could have done.
  11. Hmm. Would you end up with an Airfileri or an Itaix?
  12. At 46 years old I was greyer than your Whitley! Now I could pass for a bald Sunderland.
  13. Very environmentally conscious of you. Made from 100% recycled plastic!
  14. I don't know what you were doing in the 20 years you took off modelling, but you were wasting your time. Excellent stuff!
