    Thanks Ian! NMF isn't my favourite to brush paint but it came out ok with a bit of micromesh and elbow grease. Cheers Greg

    Hi Neo, No problem if it needs changed but that's the name of the plane so to speak! Strangely enough the the real aircraft received admonishment from the squadron Chaplain who thought it was profane! The Jug retained its moniker despite this. Cheers Greg

    Thank you Glad you like it. Cheers Greg
  5. Hi Stix, Very good result with your Hurricane dio. The motorised prop really gives it that nice finishing touch. Didn't you do a 1/72 scale version too? Brilliant build as always. All the best Greg

    Superb 109 Nic! Excellent colour scheme, and weathering. It really looks the part. Very well done Cheers Greg
  7. Hi Dennis, I like what you are doing with this old classic. A lot of TLC is going in to your build and its paying out in spades. I look forward to the next update. Keep up good work. All the best Greg

    Hi Stix, Thanks for the kind comments. This one was a bit of a mojo booster, and I'm already starting a new build as we speak. Cheers Greg

    Big A$$ed Bird

    Greetings Folks, Its been a while since i posted anything following the Matchbox GB. Here is my latest effort, Academy's Thunderbolt Nose Art Edition. The option i chose was the one on the box top the well known Big A$$ed Bird 2 flown by Major Howard Parks. Although this is not as perfect a kit as the Tamiya version it built up without any problems whatsoever IMHO a very nice kit. I built it OOTB but used a set of Hobbyboss decals i had in the stash as Academy's aren't the best in my experience. The entire model is brush painted using Revell acrylics. Masking was a bit of a chore but it appears to have been worth the effort in the end. Here's the pics...

  10. That really is a stunning result Stix, The figures finish it of nicely for me. I think they add a lot to AFV subjects. The base will set off the tank to a tee. Looking forward to the next update. Cheers Greg
  11. Very nice Stix, The base looks promising and the figures are a great addition to the tank. I have LRDG jeep on the go at the moment and this is inspiring me to finish it. Cheers Greg
  12. More great work Stix, I had been contemplating the Dragon tank crew you have there so I will be keen to see how they turn out. Kind regards Greg
