  1. Well I've done it, chopped the front of a perfectly good model....... 😱

    Let's hope I can get this back together without looking like a crashed plane...

     

    White plastic card added as a brace to fix the new resin front, probably still going to have to build up the wings and fuselage before building up the new nose.

  2. So I have been spelling Eduard wrong so I I apologise for that and now I'm building somthing I no nothing about so I apologise for that. I won this kit from Keighley plastic model club for a flying VW beetle I made. This kit has some lovely stuff in the box and this afternoon I made a start and built up the cockpit and now I need to decide what aircraft I'm actually going to build as there are quite a few options to choose from, one of them I have to chop of the plastic parts and replace with some very nice resin parts. 

     

    Any preference out these?

  3. Hi all ready for you comments are my my latest biplanes from Edward, really enjoyed these two more than the other builds but I'm putting that  down to getting a bit experienced at building then. I'm not really an airplane builder I tend to stick to sci-fi stuff that I can build a paint in what ever colours and shades I like so sticking to the instructions is also a novelty for me. Anyway here are my efforts along with my the complete aircraft experience. 

     

    Cheers Brian.

  4. Well these two are now finished, really enjoyed making these two they both went together better than the other 2 Edward kits I have made but that is probably down to improving experience. I have tried to give the paint finish a little more interest that one flat colour with some subtle shading and light weathering. Look out for the RFI coming soon and thanks for all the comments and those that have dropped in and added a like an all that. 

     

    Cheers Brian.

    Lovely build regardless.

    Thanks you,

     

    Not the best out come as my lines are a bit wobbly but her is the paint I used and few WIP of the painting the prop. The wash add the end realy helps with the colour and to blure the lines.

    For a second I was trying to work out what bit of Albatros your sci-fi model was! Must get out more... Both of them look great.

     

    Regards,

    Adrian

    Cheers, just a 1/144 lightning had to give its life for that sci-fi build.

    Anyway, glad you tried the MGs.  BTW, how did you do the prop?  That really looks spot on.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Bob, 

    It was a bit ruff at times with lock down etc but doing even better now just landed a proper job again working for the sleep charity, going to head of there commissioning services, so all good.  As for the prop I king of winged it 😉, base colour of pale earth them using a fine brush I did the lines using brick red, them over those with a dark red/brown to widen and fade the edges, then I thinned the red/brown and did the same again, until I was happy with the look, I might have done a sepia wash on top and gloss to finish.  

     

    All the best Brian.

  8. So after a bit a sci-fi kit bash I'm back these two little planes, the second one seems to be  coming together a lot better than the first and I'm a lot happier with the overall look of it so far. I did lift the two gun so they are a little more visible once the upper wing goes on, not strictly as per it would look in the real work but at least I can see my work once finished.

  9. But late but I used to order regularly from banzaihobby.com and Plazajapan, never got stung for charges when the total cost ( kit and postage) was under £30, not sure why but anything that was alsways a gamble and anything over around 40-45 would generally get the extra charges. Both great companies and will deal with again when funds allow.

    The ships power supply comes from the constent fusion that occurs in these exotic metallic comets found around the Sol 15s third plant.

     

    A kit bash parts bin build, comments welcome. 

     

    Cheers Brian.

    Looking great, and congratulations on the job Brian!

    Thank you. Shitting my self about actually doing it now..... 

     

    Anyway back to making models and this one now has its decals on, I think I want to add another colour to it somewhere, maybe the wings to brake up the blue, then just the odd bit of detail paint to add.
