  1. Thank you for the feedback guys, I have to admit that I was not completly sure about the missiles, I did try dry fitting the pylons a few times but that was the best I came up with. The seam along the top, again I tried, I have used Mr Surfacer, thought I had it ok but it does stand out in the photo. I have finished it now, and am quite pleased with the results so will leave as is, but of course take on all points for my next model. Each one I complete is better than the last and that is what I am aiming for. The most important thing for me is I enjoyed building it. Cheers Kev
  2. Thanks for all the replies, much appreciated. Cheers Kev
  3. Finished pics in the RFI section, thanks to all for a very inspirational build subject, will definitly meet the deadline next time! Cheers Kev
  4. This was going to be my first GB entry in the Year that I was born group build. Time ran away with me and I never managed to finish on time, but here it is at last. This is my fourth model since returning to modelling after a gap of thirty odd years. I really enjoyed making this and found the kit a very nice build. It is my first attempt with an airbrush, first all metal finish and first go at using a Flory wash. The kit is straight from the box, added detail to the seat using wire and foil from a wine cap. Thank you to Paul J for the 111 Sqn Decals Lots of lessons learnt and a very enjoyable experience. Cheers Kev
  5. How about 8 1000lber's on twin store carriers?
  6. I found these, they are GR4, but most of them would be usable I think? https://www.fantasyprintshop.co.uk/shop/euro-decals-tornado-gr-4-stencils-ed-32118/ Cheers Kev
  7. Unfortunatley I am not going to get this finished for the deadline. Where does the time go? I have learnt an awful lot from taking part though, my first group build, my first use of an air brush and first all metallic finish. Have just ordered Flory wash to add to it. Thouroughly enjoying the build and will post pics on completion. Thanks for letting me take part. Cheers Kev
  8. Hi all, for my entry I have chosen a Lightning of 111 Sqn at RAF Wattisham in October of 1963. The connection is I served on 111 Sqn at RAF Leuchars in the 1990's and this is what they were flying the year I was born. I have chosen the Airfix F1/F1A kit in 1/48. It is a big box Also going to be a bit bigger than I thought it would be. That's an A3 mat. But not as many pieces as I thought. I intend to build out of the box, apart from the appropriate decals, kindly offered by Paul J, thank you very much mate. Cheers Kev
  9. Hi I have entered the year you were born GB and have been unsuccessfully searching for 111 Sqn decals for a Airfix 1/48 Lightning F1. The kit A09179 has markings for 56 sqn 74 sqn and Lightning training sqn. Willing to swap these for some 111 Sqn decals or purchase outright. I know that Flightpath produced the following set but have not been able to track a set down. RAF Lightning F.3 Decal Sheet 23, 56, 74 & 111 Sqn Flightpath - Nr. 1/48 - 1:48 Any suggestions greatfully received Cheers Kev
  10. brilliant painting job, loving the weathering, something I must learn how to do. Cheers Kev
  11. Hi Shaun Do you have any 1/48 LMRTS lenses left please. I would gladly take one off your hands if you do.

  13. Very nice finish. What did you use for the bare metal? It's very good. Cheers Kev
