  1. This is a wonderfully engineered kit. Everything has fitted perfectly so far. Looking forward to building the next one as I can already see some areas I can improve. Cheers David
  2. Thanks John for the post and heads up. It has certainly gone together very nicely so far. Cheers David
  3. Oooh very nice I have one of these in the stash somewhere but none of those lovely aftermarket bits and bobs....will enjoy this.
  4. I have had this in the stash for a few months now...I think I picked it up as a special from Hannants. Love the Mig-21 but don’t usually build at this scale. In fact it will be only my second 1/144 build ever. The kit: Its a dual combo but I will probably only build one model in this WIP. Not sure which colour scheme I will go for but probably one of the NMF. As always all comments welcome. Cheers Dave
  5. Ok Flickr now working. Heres the kit: I got the kit from a certain online auction and it came with this: Not got a great record with resin but will give it a go. Cheers Dave
  6. Hey Mark looking forward to your build hope it’s ok that I am building a similar kit. Dave
  7. A few years ago my very first GB was a P-38 GB on BM. I didn’t have anything in the stash and so I picked up a couple of kits. If memory serves I built an RS Model 1/72 or at least tried to. As with many of my GBs since I didn’t finish... Anyway if it is ok with everyone I would like to join the GB with the other kit I bought an 1/48 Academy P-38F of the famous Glacier Girl. There are numerous references on line setting out the history of this aircraft from production to being found 268 ft below the snowy surface of a Greenland glacier. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glacier_Girl for the full story. I am having a few issues with Flickr so will post some pictures later. Dave
  8. Thanks for all the comments guys. I am calling this one is done. I have enjoyed this one very much. It’s a lovely little kit with a few small fit issues but nothing too tricky. As always all comments welcome. Dave
  9. And finally some more modelling time...managed to grab a few hours this week and this is where we got to. I will finish this build....famous last words. Cheers Dave
  10. Cheers Col. Nothing that won’t heal but I won’t be skiing this week...stupid, stupid....still silver lining and all that means I will have a bit of modelling time...will be minimalist work as I literally have 4 paints, a scalpel, glue and a file...
  11. Gone away for a cheeky skiing holiday and as a last minute thought threw a kit and some basic tools into the case....good thing too as I managed to smash myself up on the third run and spent the rest of the day in hospital . Anyway my question is whether an Eduard Mig 15bis from Jag 11 in East Germany in 1956 qualified for this GB. The reason I ask is that the Eduard blurb refers to Jag 11 as a training unit. If so am I outside the scope of this build? Col word of wisdom please. Very relaxed if the answer is no.
  12. Thanks Col Its was a busy weekend and Sod’s law I have done pretty much nothing since then! A small update to follow. D Thank you my friend it is certainly on its way...
  13. Why is it some builds take ages to get going and others just throw the selves together....this one has been one of the latter but that may be because Mrs K and kids have been out and about for quite a few hours this weekend. So this is what has happened...sorry for the lack of photos...I kinda got caught up in the build. Everything went together fairly smoothly but as other have commentated the wing joint is a bit of a pig and I didn’t get as smooth a joint as I would have liked. Dave
  14. Thanks John. Have certainly had a fun build so far. Dave
  15. Cheers Wez That thread is really helpful. I found the wing joint a bit of a pain and it’s nice to see someone else had the same iss. Dave Cheers Colin. I have always had a soft spot of a Vampire...probably why I ended up with this one in the stash! Dave
