    Airfix 1/72 Harrier GR9a

    Very well done! Congrats! Cheers Jaime
  2. Thank you very much for your kind words and interest! I'm glad you liked my over detailed build log! Sometimes I think a get a bit over the top on that Cheers Jaime
  3. Hi Gene, Thank you very much for your appreciation! Just out of curiosity, in which aspects do you think Fujimi's kit is better than Airfix's? I still haven't analysed Airfix's in detail, just took a look at the instructions. The plastic is still in the bag. Cheers Jaime
  4. Hi Paul! @mcdonnell You're unfailingly kind in your comments, thank you very much! I'm glad you like it! Cheers Jaime
  5. Hi Sam ( @SaminCam ) Thank you very much for taking the trouble to measure the model! It seems it will be difficult to store a model like this in my current display cabinet. Anyway, I'm planning to get a larger cabinet as I have several quite big models in the stash. Cheers Jaime

    What are you reading?

    Finished reading France 1940: Defending the Republic, by Philip Nord, which I found excellent. The last chapters, on the manoeuvring of the conservatives (Pétain et al.) to overthrow the Republic immediately after the military defeat in Belgium and establishing the Vichy regime, were rather depressing. I'm now reading Prisoners of Geography, by Tim Marshall, which is extremely interesting. Cheers Jaime
  7. Thank you very much @propforward ! Cheers Jaime
  8. John ( @John D.C. Masters ), Falke ( @FalkeEins ), Pat ( @JOCKNEY ) Thank you very much! You're all too kind! When I bought the kit back in 2015 it was really the best available in 1/72, according to the reviews I read. It built well and the decals were the really bad point. In the meantime Airfix has launched their British Phantoms and I already bought the Royal Navy boxing. It looks very good in the box, with lots of build options. I hope to build it in the future. Cheers Jaime
  9. Thank you very much Troffa! The decals were very welcome ! Cheers Jaime
  10. Stix ( @PlaStix ), Giorgio ( @giemme ), @F-32 , Steve ( @stevej60 ), @dadofthree, @Tbolt, Steve ( @stevehnz ), Thank you all very much for the king comments! Really much appreciated! Cheers Jaime
  11. Joe ( @Fatboydim ), Woody ( @woody37 ), thank you very much for the kind comments! Cheers Jaime
  12. Thank you very much @ArmouredSprue The position lights were simply painted with transparent red and transparent green. Nothing too elaborate Cheers Jaime
  13. After more than three years and several setbacks with the decals, I finally finished my Royal Navy Phantom! :yahoo:

  14. Just to let you know that I've just published the RFI post with the final pictures here. Thanks again for all the kind comments! Cheers Jaime
