    Revell Handley Page Halifax Mk.III

    Thanks very much Ced. Into the final stretch now and planning the next project.

    Revell Handley Page Halifax Mk.III

    Thanks very much. Despite some easily made corrections the kit goes together beautifully, if you're not overly concerned about accuracy you'll still have an impressive representation of a Halifax. Go on, give it a go.

    Decals on today followed by a coat of gloss and the plan is to do some washes tomorrow.

    Thanks very much Michael. I used Mr Hobby H77 Tire Black, a much better choice of "black" in my opinion than black black.

    Thank you. It's not quite ready yet, the gloss coat hasn't cured properly. I know that because there's now fingerprints on the fuselage.

    Almost time for some decaling.

    2019 Halifax Show

    It's a great little model and being a bit of a fan of crime fiction from that period it caught my attention right away,.

    Yes, that dio was an amazing piece of work and what was also amazing was seeing the two guys who brought it confidently tilt it about 30° to get it through the doors, quite a few of us were visibly holding our breath until it was safely horizontal again.

    Well I had a good time. I've created an album of some of the models that caught my interest on my FB page and made it available for public viewing, however if anyone has difficulty seeing it please let me know. Unfortunately by the time I deleted the worst out of focus pics there wasn't many left. https://www.facebook.com/roger.newsome.180/media_set?set=a.2287422181472053&type=3

    1/700 HMS EXETER Falkland 1982

    Whether you decide to make any changes or not Franco it is still a very nice looking model and the sea turned out very well.

    The story I heard was it was excellent anti fouling paint but was rejected because the powers that be didn't like the colour.

    I remember the sky blue boot topping on the Exeter, I wouldn't like to put a date on it though.
  13. Very nice indeed!

    The correct wheels/tyres from Freightdog arrived and have been added. My worry there was freeing the incorrect resin resin wheels which I'd glued in place with Gorilla superglue, however my wife's Boots nail polish remover applied sparingly with a brush did the trick and interestingly to note is the stuff comes in varying strengths. Who knew? Fortunately for me hers is specifically for weak, dry nails, (she had no idea ) preventing collateral damage to surrounding plastic. Mid upper turret also added.

    Pass the Jug will ya

    That's coming along great. If I get to Halifax show on Sunday, which I hope I will and I see one of these it'll be coming home with me.
