  1. Yes Lambretta ... Had a few back in the 60s and 70s. I currently ride a 1980 Model (Produced in India)
  2. Thanks for all the encouraging replies!
  3. How do you get pics to appear in the body of the post?
  4. This 1/48 Airfix BF109E is the first kit I have built for something like 50 years! My eyesight and clumpy fingers can't cope with 1/72 scale so it’s 1/48 scale for me. It's the first time I have used an airbrush or attempted any kind of weathering. All paints used are Vallejo Model Air. Some parts are missing/broken off, courtesy of a heavy-handed grandson, hence the retracting undercarriage. I've used a clear Airfix stand which has been removed from the photo by magic. I’ve got some of the prop blur thingies but not convinced they look that effective. I’ll maybe try the no-blade method to simulate a spinning prop. Currently building another Airfix 109E and an Airfix Mosquito PR.XVI (Both 1/48) with lots more waiting! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZUlNfLWG6QZNH309x7yCjHzJTCuzqGYn/view?usp=sharing

    Yes, plus the PR.XVI fuselage, canopy and cockpit parts.
  7. Very nicely done - those masks worked a treat, and you've drooped the elevators. One point though, crowbars were not painted red until after the war. During the war they were usually silver (steel) or Interior Green and occasionally black.

    I assume it was one complete sprue as the following parts were missing ... 131 - upper wing 132 - upper wing 133 - nacelle half 134 - nacelle half 135 - nacelle half 136 - nacelle half 137 - nacelle top 138 - nacelle top 147 - drop tank half 148 - drop tank half 149 - drop tank half 150 - drop tank half

    I'm surprised Airfix couldn't help. I managed to mess up some of the decals on a 1/48 109 and they replaced them free of charge, and only last week they replaced a complete missing sprue from the 1/48 Mosquito PR.XVI again, free of charge.

    I like it ... Don't think the weathering is that OTT to be honest!
