  1. What with everything going on in life namely diy again, finally managed to get back to the hobby and do the sanding and painting I really want to do... but don't tell wifey as she thinks I did house up with enthusiasm So here's my entry and hopefully be totally focused right through to the end, probably done in time for Christmas. Good chance I'll mess up the camo colours as I really don't know much about them. Oh well, you can only try your best

    You can add my name as well. Do have a Tamiya Kawasaki I think... however, can I clarify a possible grey area - I assume a 1/35 Wehrmacht BMW motorcycle is acceptable but how about a Sd.KFz.222 as an armoured car? Or even more greyer - 1/24 Daisy Duke Jeep Wrangler CJ acceptable but how about 1/35 US Army Jeep or even M1025 Humvee? ...and finally a Ford Transit van definitely not acceptable as is a Kenworth truck as seen on Ice Road Truckers but okay if it's a Ford or Nissan pickup truck?
  3. It is indeed the Special Hobby, was quite tempted by the Airfix but I think for the time being I'm all nostalgia full Already staked my claim on the GB chat thread too post #143 https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015367-the-pacific-at-war-gb/&page=6

    1/72 Airfix P-40B Tomahawk

    Finally all done. I kept the weather to the barest minimum as I think this P-40 may have been one diverted from a French order. The squadron also only flew the type for 6 months before transitioning onto Spits. Overall a typical Airfix kit, a few areas that could be better - canopy looks a tad oversize, gear leg tad too long and prop blades tad too narrow. The saving grace is no other P-40B kit out there that's better than the Airfix... nearest is a rehashed Frog from the 60's
  6. Certainly will be there. Already got me entry sorted out with a Boomerang
  7. There's also this one that is quite appropriate for this GB ...and amazingly, a model kit
  8. Made it in time, probably trapped the number 3 wire when I landed on deck Thanks for this GB and the hosts for their work in setting it up Had a lot of fun even with the challenges. If we see another Carrier GB, would love to enter a type like this Prowler... although I wouldn't mind seeing another Helicopter GB

    Thanks Rich, not sure it's my best build but it will do and... it's finished ️ I didn't quite get how the fabric control surfaces are supposed to be coloured. Some sources said a distinctive grey and a few b/w photos showed quite a different shade however, the surfaces were deflected and couldn't say if it was just the lighting causing it to look different. I went for a compromise with a light grey that from a distance appear to blend in with the airframe colour.
  11. Certainly is a good blast from the past for me. I really liked the different look of the Sabre Dog and a bonus to have a nmf USAF scheme. As I recall, the kit went together really well - quite unusual for an Airfix model I thought at the time.
  12. Thanks guys Not exactly a shake and bake kit but probably good it offers a bit of a challenge. Certainly am quite happy with the way the "reinvented" Airfix models have turned out.
  13. Great job on the digital camo. Looks very nice.

    Very nice build. Got the Revell 1/72 version to do at some point... might wait for a GB.
