  1. In terms of what happens next to the aircraft there will be a very thorough clean up and a whole raft of inspections and checks carried out to the engines and airframe a laid out in Chapter 5 of the aircraft maintenance manual. Its not impossible for birds to pass clean through an engine and leave absolutely no trace of damage whatsoever, I've seen this more than once, but something the size of gulls are at minimum have bent a few fan blades if not worse. If the bird has gone through the core of the engine and not just down the bypass duct then there will be a requirement for horoscope inspections to check the various stages of LP and HP compressor. Again the AMM will lay down very specific and clear limits for quantity of blades damaged and size of damage. Oh and as has been pointed out already the smell that disassembled gulls leave in a hot engine is something that will turn the strongest of stomach's! Eng
  2. Not experienced this personally but looks like the Tamiya Thinners may have reacted with the Klear I personally only ever use Humbrol Acrylic rattle cans for the final varnish coats, I know that doesn't help here but might be worth trying next time round. Don't bin the kit though. Rub it back and have another go at it, I've got a couple of spare Revell GR.1 decals sheets if you want one. Eng

  4. Beautiful collection, thats a lot of rotor blades!!! Eng
  5. Thats absolutely outstanding, defo one of the best schemes ever applied to a Hawk. Love the base, the ground equipment and the crew. 1st class work. Eng
  6. Absolutely outstanding build, weathering looks spot on. Eng
  7. Is it just a re-box of the Dragon/Panda kit? Eng
  8. Only other thing I’d recommend with the Revell kit is to shorten the nose oleo/shock absorber slightly otherwise the jet sits slightly too nose high. Eng
  9. If you choose to build your kit with gear down and on the ground, don’t forget that the wings need to be displayed in the forward unswept position! Eng
  10. Stunning, both jets are absolutely superb! I agree about the intakes, the only area that lets the kit down a bit, but you’ve done a beautiful job of the painting and finishing of the ones on your F.3. Will miss these when they no longer grace our skies. Eng
  11. Wow what an awesome collection, everyone of them absolutely stunning.... and not a Jolly Roger in sight
  12. REALLY like this, it's absolutely beautiful, fantastic attention to detail. Eng
  13. First post I've opened tonight on BM and totally blown away by this build! I've flown on a few but probably worked, or at least set foot on, nearly every BA 767 in my 24 years with the company, I changed fuel filters on NWZ prior to its first revenue flight, and NWF split my head open when the fan cowl hold open rod dropped down as the cowl was opened!. With the exception of the sadly departed 757, these beauties are without doubt favourites of mine, the aircraft carries off the company livery perfectly and is just a good looking jet, they're lovely to fly on as well. I'm not looking forward to the day when these no longer pass through Glasgow and are eventually never seen again, nothing else looks "just right". Your build is absolutely stunning, beautifully finished and captures the fine lines of the jet "just right". A tremendous nod to this great aeroplane and a great piece of modelling, can't say more than that. I've a Revell kit part built as a SAS aircraft and the Zvezda kit with decals for a BA bird..... which I'm now rather inspired to build. Fantastic, Rgds, Eng
