  1. Little progress to share but finally got the decals on, next week comes the fun part where I can finally start panel washing and weathering.
  2. Looks great, personally I really like the panel line wash.
  3. Finally going to have some updates tomorrow! I may finish a GB for once.
  4. This makes me want to build another armour kit, great job so far!
  5. So here's my first entrant for this GB, probably not the last I'll be honest. For those that didn't see the chat here's what I have eligible. I've decided to start with the mosquito mainly as the Beaufighter may need a replacement canopy and its about time I finished the kit. Here's what the little work I did today, sorting the white stripes prior to getting it ready for decals. Aircraft will be finished as a 45 Sqn machine based in India in 1945.
  6. No not really, only thing it's italeris crude moulding that has a fair bit of flash on some of the smaller parts. Overall it's a nice kit, it stopped in its track as I don't have the desert paints for it at the minute.
  7. It's Italeri's 1/48 kit.
  8. Thank you Col, yes the Beaufighter will most likely be my first entrant to this GB.
  9. Where do I start? Ive got a 109, Boston, Skyraider, Beaufighter, Mosquito, Spitfire, Hurricane, A-4 and F-5. Plenty to choose from!
  10. Well gents thought I'd share what little I've got done. Fuselage and wings together. Going to detail the gear bays next as well as the engines. Looking at the landing gear I think I may need to order metal replacements because the kit ones look very flimsy.
  11. I don't think anyone will moan about another Tomcat.
  12. Nice Steve I'm building the same kit, you decided on which scheme you're gonna do?
  13. My second build for this GB will be the Tigercat alongside my Eduard Hellcat. One of my favourite aircraft in the fact it just looks so good. Kit has been started but below the 25% rule. Planning to finish as the bottom aircraft based at Cherry Point.
  14. Thanks be good to get this one completed!
  15. Guys I've noticed no Tigercat builds so far, just thought I'd check if this wasn't to far gone to enter. I've built the cockpit and painted the interior, that's it so far. Figured this GB would be the perfect time to finish it off.
  16. Not much to report, made a start though. Wings altogether minus photo etched parts, cockpit will be the next focus. Decided on my scheme as well. I shall be doing Death and Destruction VF-83 USS Essex.
  17. Evening chaps I'll be entering with this little beauty. Hopefully I can finish a GB for once!
  18. Update of progress so far, I'm enjoying these simple kits to be honest. I need to carry on giving them a clean up with some more sanding but should be time for some paint soon.
  19. I purchased the Airfix BBMF collection with the intent to build it for the classic Airfix GB but that didn't exactly go to plan especially seeing the Hurricane is actually a Heller kit, so it ended up spurned and boxed. I think it's about time I resurrected this childhood classic. So starting with the fighters the build will resume. Heres what I plan to build.... The Spitfire Mk ii will be finished OOB. The Hurricane. Will be using an Xtradecal sheet for this scheme. I wish to add this Mk IX to the collection, not sure what kit I'll be using just yet, I know AZ Model do a version with these decals, alternatively techmod produce a decal sheet for this scheme. The lanc I'll be finishing as Phantom of the Ruhr with the different Sqn codes using this Xtradecal sheet. The Lanc will be posed in flight on a stand but the fighters I'm debating displaying on a base as if they're at Connigsby. Anyone know any other decal sheets in 1/72 of BBMF aircraft feel free to let me know.
  20. I actually have the Hobbymaster diecast version of Johnnie Johnson's XIV Spit, once this comes out its days in my collection may be numbered. Would love to do a Belgian kite always thought their roundels looked good on the side of a Spit.
