  1. We've been keeping an eye on this competition and we want to say everyone is putting in absolutely fantastic effort! Everything looks amazing! Best of luck in these last few days everyone! - Andy
  2. Hi CedB, cheers for the advice. Had a look at yours and that definitely seemed to work for you! Will make sure to try that out next time then - thanks! - Andy
  3. Woah - it looks fantastic! Very impressive piece, well done! - Andy
  4. Ahh. Thanks for the advice! Will try that on the next one then. (I can see this becoming a rather expensive hobby very quickly!)
  5. Cheers for all the kind words guys and thanks for the suggestions on kits too! I was getting very ahead of myself last night and looking at some beautiful, but ridiculously intricate, Space Shuttle models as well as the Airfix 1:72 ranges - think I'll start there before shooting for the stars! Is there anyway to remove or hide the clear bits in the decals which hold them together (see the 'Walk Here' lines on the wings) or is that something that can't really be hidden? Had seen the Humbrol Decalfix stuff last night and wondered if that would help hide it perhaps? - Andy
  6. Thanks! Conscious of the gaps and dodgy paintwork, but I think I was rushing to get it together really. Fingers crossed the next one will go together better! Will definitely have a look at the Spitfires - cheers for the suggestion! - Andy
  7. Hi all! This was my first ever build and I wanted to do it so that I could be a bit more involved in this fantastic community who are always so keen to buy our modelling books! I started the build thinking that I would do everything in a very neat, ordered way, however I quickly wanted to start gluing and seeing it take shape, so I became a little sloppy with my orderly ideas! I had several issues with the build (a couple because of my own fault and one or two which I will blame the kit for!) My biggest issue was the engines and them not fitting on the wings neatly despite how much i wig
  8. Hi all! Final update here for me here! I have added a couple more coats of paint to all the parts of the plane, but suddenly noticed that I had put my propellers on wrong *duh* I had put the two larger ones both on the same side, rather than a thinner and larger one on either side. Fortunately, my gluing abilities obviously leave much to be desired, and I was able to remove one of the props entirely as well as a whole engine from the other side! I had to cut each blade off individually and re-glue them back on as a bit of a hack job to get them back in the correct place. Not sure how I
  9. So *eventually* I managed to put the first two engines together and tried to add them onto the plane. I encountered several issues with pieces not quite fitting neatly together here - not sure if it was more my lack of skill or if this is a known problem with the kit at all? The casing for the engines didn't sit flat together (i think this was more to do with my lack of ability) but then the engine itself didn't sit on the wing neatly either... Added the other engines and put the wheels on. I'll be honest - by this point I had gotten a bit frustrated with painting before putting things to
  10. Hi all! Sincere apologies for the radio silence on my part for posting progress. I must admit I got pretty frustrated with the kit after the engine pieces didn't fit together and broke apart for the millionth time so I had my half finished kit sat on the side for the past months. However. Last week I thought it was time to get back in the saddle and give it another shot... Photos coming imminently... - Andy

  13. Congratulations Wolwe82! The plane looked absolutely fantastic! Some really amazing entries so well done to everyone who took part in this too! I have sent through an email to you about your prize, and don't worry about being outside of the UK, we'll see if we can get a P-40 to fly your prize over to you (can't promise this though)! Well done again everyone! Andy
