  1. Fair play to you, fantastic collection!...I'm allmost at the end of my first and maybe only Trumpeter Harrier but you've had the motivation to build five fabulous models. Amazing work, i'm sure you need a rest now?! Shaun.
  2. Nice work Dave, you enjoy your US navy builds and it shows! Shaun.
  3. You can get a nice TCS from Quickboost, so that would make it easy if Tamiya leaves the older IP panels in the D boxing to make a B.
  4. The US navy has issued an order that all non standard and CAG aircraft are to return to standard gray colours. https://blog.usni.org/posts/2018/04/17/why-i-sanded-down-the-best-looking-jet-in-the-navy Sad times, as the past few years have seen some great colours on the Hornets. Shaun.

    Tamiya F-14A Tomcat Advice

    I took mine from the Hasegawa kit and made resin copies for future builds. Quickboost have released a tail with the ECM fitting now. Shaun.
  6. Kit arrived today, Wow. Very nice and looks quite a simple build, maybe? lol
  7. Hi Nick, Myself and Peiro must be mad?, your right the Trumpeter Harrier does take a little work to correct! I'm getting there and hopefully nothing major should prevent me from getting to the finish line this time?!! Things are a bit better in life, hence me back at the bench and enjoying a little modelling time.... Shaun.

    Syria Strike Tornados?

    Interesting info from Airforces monthly, I love the fact on the likes of Facebook everyone cries keep OPSEC but its all over the media on the net? Of the eight Royal Air Force No 31 Squadron Tornado GR4s deployed to RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus under Operation Shader, four were involved in the operation. The jets are home based at RAF Marham in Norfolk and are scheduled for retirement next year.The Tornados were among nine RAF aircraft understood to have participated in the strikes on the chemical weapon facilities on April 14. Each Tornado launched a pair of Storm Shadow cruise missiles at the Him Sinshar chemical weapons storage site, a former Syrian Arab Army missile base, around 15 miles (24km) west of Homs. The coalition believed the site was used for storage of chemical weapons or materials for their manufacture.The Tornados, which come under the command of 903 Expeditionary Air Wing at RAF Akrotiri, were escorted by four No 6 Squadron Typhoon FGR4s that conducted force combat air patrol (FORCAP) missions. Each Typhoon was armed with two AIM-132 Advanced Short-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (ASRAAMs) and two AIM-120C-5 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAMs). The Typhoons secured the airspace over the eastern Mediterranean Sea before, during and after the Tornados launched their Storm Shadows. Voyager KC2 ZZ343 was available for aerial refuelling to keep the Typhoons airborne for almost three hours between 0330hrs and 0630hrs local time.It is understood that prior to the raid one of four Sentinel R1 Airborne Stand-Off Radar (ASTOR) aircraft of the RAF’s No 5 (Army Cooperation) Squadron was deployed to Akrotiri, arriving on April 12. Sentinel ZJ690 reportedly flew an intelligence-gathering mission in support of the operation. The images taken by its ASARS-2A sensor would have assisted identification of the Him Sinshar chemical weapons storage site and other targets destroyed by cruise missiles from allied forces. It is rumoured that ZJ690 was also used for battle damage assessment (BDA) after the strikes. https://airforcesmonthly.keypublishing.com/2018/04/14/strikes-on-syria-tornado-back-at-war/

    Syria Strike Tornados?

    Quite easy really as the tail number on the Tornado,matches a serial and now the Typhoons are carrying the last 3 of the serial on the tail so has made it easier than before. lol

    Tornado Gr1

    Get the GR4 kit, not much difference in price if you shop around and all the bits are in the box except the correct outer pylons(which Revel some how missed)>I've made some in resin if you want to accurate along with wing seals to replace the kits basic seals. Nice work on a prototype MRCA, but a nice way to cheat would be using this decal sheet? lol http://www.syhartdecal.fr/references.php?lang=ENG&ref=Syhart 097&page=description Shaun.
  15. Looking forward to seeing the delivery man then. Got the GWH Mig-29 kit and that is Wow, so this sounds even better? Shaun.
