  1. Nice job G, I have the newer rebox of this so interested to see how she turns out
  2. Looking good Dennis, this model reminds me of my Dad's build he had in the loft years ago. Always sticks out because of the turtle and the fact he mainly builds 1/32nd.
  3. Just an update on progress, back at work so I've shelved her for the week with some other ongoing builds. Fueslage all together wings and cannons attached. Just got some sanding to finish on her before prepping for paint. Probably just going to finish as the aircraft depicted in the box art.
  4. I really like that, smart scheme. Great job Steve
  5. I suppose I should I actually get a kit sorted
  6. Update the bulk of the interior work is done, bit wash work to do on the fuselage and a small bit on the rear sub frame, I've assembled the wings with the most ridiculous undercarriage attachements ever. So fiddly I don't know why they have complicated this kit so much. I've also cut the pilots door off so as I'll be having the canopy open and I plan to add seat belts in at a later stage. Hope to have the fuselage together within the next day or so as I'm back at work
  7. Had the same issue with my seat, not their best design by any means.
  8. Quick update on cockpit progress, hoping to have it all buttoned up tomorrow ready for the fuselage to be sealed together. A very over complicated cockpit assembly procedure which has taken a lot of drying fittings and testing. Note to self always go with Tamiya
  9. Well this may be the most frustrating cockpit interior I've built in some time Over complicated and a shoddy fit! I'll post pics of progress tonight and hopefully I'll have it together but it's all painted with just a few bits of detailing and touch ups to do.
  10. That's not a bad idea, I'll get it built up first then go from there.
  11. Gonna have to cancel this one guys! In lockdown at home at I've left the kit at work, so doubtful I'll have time to get it finished.
  12. I wonder if this is the same as the Italeri boxing? Have one unpainted on the shelf of doom, maybe this will motivate me to finish it.
  13. Great suggestions and I do have another of the same kit so wouldn't be a complete waste.
  14. Some good gen there thanks Troy. Ah noted good thing I've got a Sea Fury to keep me occupied.
  15. I've seen reviews online about the kit, must admit the looking over it I'm not a fan of the undercarriage installation method at all. Thanks for the heads up! That's the one, almost double what I bought the kit for so I'm in two minds, have found a cheaper decal sheet, maybe I'll just go OOB. I'll decide once I get To the painting stage.
  16. Seeing we're in lockdown I may as well try and clear some of the stash. I've got two of these in the stash hence my potential decal sheet choices featured below. I will only be building the one for this GB though and would quite like to do a Malta aircraft in an overall blue scheme. Will post pics of progress tomorrow.
  17. I think I'm gonna join this one seeing I'm in lockdown, I have an Airfix 1/48 Mk Vb I'll be entering. Will be finishing as a Malta spit but I think I'm gonna buy some aftermarket decals instead of the OOB ones.
  18. Have finally made a start now lockdown is upon us, annoyingly though I've left some paints I need to complete the cockpit at my work accommodation, so limited to what I can currently get done. Order for paints in gonna go ASAP hoping tomorrow I can share some of the photo etched bits for the cockpit.
  19. Another great build Steve, I don't know what it is about Danish jets but they always look great.
  20. Yeah thats the one that I was leaning towards as well
  21. Been searching online for a set of decals that are appealing and I've found this pair from Kits-World which they do in 1/72, both are rather appealing A/C but I'm yet to decide. Building wise not alot of change, starting to paint the interior up so hoping to have the fuselage closed up by the end of the week.
