  1. Fantastic work Duncan. Great to see TAF subjects here.
  2. Hi Guys, My wife and I have recently set up our own shop called ‘The Model Room’ in Papakura, Auckland, where I build on commission, along with selling models and supplies. I’ve been working on this 1/32 North American P-51 factory diorama for a while, and decided to set it up to see where the holes are, how things are going to fit etc. Here’s where progress is at at the moment. I’ve since been asked by the customer to add 2 more Mustangs to the diorama to fill it out. I’ve got 100 Masterbox figures (factory workers) to modify and put on it, along with all of the tool boxes, tools, compressors, ladders, scaffolding light fittings etc. All of the lights are LED and will work. The completed Mustang rolling off the production line will be number 10000, and will have signatures all over it. I have asked a lot of my customers and friends to sign a piece of paper for me, which I will then scan into my computer and print out as a decal to put over the aircraft. A unique way of getting customers involved with the build. Be sure to like our facebook page www.facebook.com/themodelroomshop to see regular updates on this build, along with other projects we are working on. Alan Sannazzaro www.themodelroom.co.nz
  3. You've done a great job. It's been good to watch you get through this one. As usual the finish is fantastic. I like your photography too.
  4. Here is my honest attempt at Trumpeters 1/32 Super Hornet. A very nice model to build, plenty of detail, so I built it straight from the box. Trumpeter give you the option of a large selection of ordinance which I really liked. Regards, Alan
  5. Needing a quick bit of comic relief between big projects, I decided to take to this rather old Revell kit, and try to make something of it. I was rather impressed with the kitset. It fits well, required minimal sanding, and hardly any filler. I've used the Print scale decals, which were extremely thin, to the point I wrecked a few trying to get them in place. However the schemes on the sheet made the nervous wreck I quickly became, all worthwhile. Enjoy, Regards, Alan
  6. Nice work. You've got to be happy with those results. It's good to see customers building models we sell them ;-) Keep up the good work.
  7. Wow, you've done a great job on this. It's such an iconic Air NZ aircraft and colour scheme. Thanks for sharing with us.
  8. This is beautiful, fantastic attention to detail. You've photographed it really well too. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  9. Very nice modelling. Well worth all the extra effort. I love the aftermarket additions, the tyres and gun barrels look fantastic. Very nice work on your metal finish also. Thanks for sharing it with us all. Regards, Alan
  10. Yep, solid brass. I've got plenty around which is why I use it. I don't currently have a picture of the base itself, but will see what I can do for you over the next few days.
  11. It's just been done with the AK oil stains, which is an oil based paint.
  12. Hi everyone. This is the old Academy 1/72 kitset. It's spent the last 10 years of it's life on the shelf of doom. So whilst it's not my best model, it's off the shelf and finished, which I'm pleased with. I've done heaps of scratch building and modifying on this model, including: Scratch built rear fuselage interior Custom positioned figures in each station Quickboost engines, which I've put ignition harnesses on each engine Plunge moulded plexiglass front nosecone. Custom made decals (thanks Peter Mossong) Vacuum formed ball turret- complete with figure inside Detailed guns with sights Shallowing out the dihedral on the wings, which is a known issue with the Academy kit Scratch built leading edge intakes, as they are excluded on the kit Hollowed out gun barrels Hollowed out exhausts Enjoy, Regards, Alan
