  1. Hi Tim, We may at some point produce a spray booth. There's nothing planned in the immediate future though we did produce a custom one last year for a customer. An airbrush stand is likely as I could do with one myself. We won't produce a turntable as 'lazy susans' (cake turntable) are cheaply and readily available. There is one fly in the ointment - currently we can't ship to North America due to insurance issues. We'll review this again in the future but at the moment the insurance costs are far higher than the sales have been. Cheers Andy
  2. Absolutely fantastic build. Very impressed with your build skills.
  3. Terrific build, Ced. Really enjoyed following this and the result is a tribute to your perseverance.
  4. Hi Steve, Just read through your thread. I’ve been intrigued by these Shermans for a few years as we are involved with a children’s centre just outside Kampala. I can confirm the soil is a red colour and very sticky when it’s wet and like concrete when packed down. I’ll see if I can dig out some photos tomorrow that show it.
  5. Ages ago I started a model of Sir Keith Park's Hurricane that he flew before and through the Battle of Britain. I've finally gotten around to taking the finished photos today. The build is here - The model is based on the Airfix rag wing kit married to Alleycat's tin wing conversion. Even with the advent of Arma Hobby's Hurricane kits this is still a valid way of producing the model as the early tin wing aircraft did not have one of the panels depicted on the Arma Hobby kit. The wheels are 5 spokes from an Eduard spitfire kit and the tyres from an Arma Hobby kit. The cano
  6. Well it has been a long time since I updated this. The build got interrupted by the Jadlam Hawk group build and whilst I was taking photos of some of the remaining build I've never got around to putting them up. I had the jab yesterday and whilst I don't feel too bad I'm not sparkling either so having an easy day today so what better to do than catch up on photos. So let's start where we left off and Troy's suggested improvements to the radiator. Hopefully, these are better. 0.3 and 0.5 nickel silver rod were used at the rear and a single strand of 7 core layout wire fort he front. W
  7. I finished this a couple of months ago having started it back in May to fill in between projects! The kit is the Revell boxing of the MPM plastic. It has a certain reputation and this one certainly lived down to it. Quite pleased with how it came out but happier to get it off the bench. The WIP can be found here Thanks for looking
  8. End of year clean up. This was actually finished a couple of months ago, so apologies for not completing the thread. Exhaust stains were airbrushed on - tyre black first and then a light grey/brown mix. I haven't got this quite right as there was a bit a splattering from the airbrush. "Mud" from the wheels was applied using pigment. A stand and nameplate has been cut and brass tubing used for the support A Coastal Kits sea base was used to complete the base A section was cut and fitted to the base. The above should provide sufficient for three displays
  9. Didn’t quite make it! Gloss coat on the upper surface ready for transfers. And a quick shot of the underside. Will take my time finishing it now rather than rushing the final bits.
  10. Thanks Dave. Current position - very questionable as to whether it will cross the finish line in time. There's a possibility, but it's tight First time I've photographed in the spray booth. I'm not sure if it's the booth lighting or the point and shoot, but neither will be used for the final photos. That green is just weird! Off to unmask!
