  1. Chistmas leave coming up, I would desperately like to complete something off the shelf of doom. So many options embarrassingly I have a Beaufighter which literally just needs a vacform canopy adding, so I probably won't end up posting that until complete, I think my submission will most likely be an Airfix A-4 Skyhawk which is almost complete painting and pretty much at final assembly/decalling or a Dragon 1/35 Sherman Firefly which has sat trackless in its box for the past 2 years. I will add a post up once on holiday but I'm determined to complete something and then if I have time maybe g
  2. Nice job so far Steve, I have one in a similar state at the moment, quite a nice kit considering it's an older mould.
  3. This is going to look awesome once completed, I'm currently planning something simialr with a BoB Hurricane and most likely a Do-17.
  4. That's looking rather nice!
  5. Little update on my Spitfire's progress, apologies for the poor picture quality. Still need to add seatbelts, I may order an eduard set, or just make my own, I haven't decided yet. Gaps on the kit aren't as bad as I first feared mainly just on the underside of the fuselage/wing join, nothing a little filler won't fix. Also I'm enjoying this GB subject so much I'm thinking of using a surplus airfix dogfights stand I have never ended up using and potentially adding something in 1/72 scale, maybe a Bf110 and Hurricane duelling. Will have to look into some history for a p
  6. Nice job so far, about to tackle some more of mine this afternoon.
  7. Eager to see how this one pans out! Thinking about doing something similar albeit with different aircraft types.
  8. I thought this kit felt familiar, having previously experienced the old Mk V mould. I'll see how it looks once the fuselage is together and if it looks ridiculous I'll see if I can amend it. Agh yes good spot I shall repainted the aluminium before applying the wash. Thanks for the depth of knowledge Troy Lee
  9. Thanks Mark that's quite helpful.
  10. It doesn't appear to be great, I'll have a better indiction once the fuselage is together. Seems theres either gaps either side where the wings join the fuselage or the front part of the wings protudes to far forward so the lower cowling fit is off. I don't think its anything a bit of sanding, test fitting and filling wont fix.
  11. Evening all, Here's the work carried out so far, not the most detailed kit and shape wise not sold on the nose, it seems to wide to me but I won't be making any drastic changes it will be an OOB build still. Next up I'll give the cockpit a dark wash, finish detailing and add some seatbelts prior to assembly. Enjoying this GB so far, I may add a 1/72 subject if I continue to make decent progress. Lee
  12. It might be an experimental job then with different mixes tested out first, and hints and tips are always welcome Troy!
