  1. Riveting stuff Alan, as your builds so often are. Makes me want to spend a lifetime learning cad so that I could be half as good. Alas I'd need a time machine first and I don't have time to build one of those.
  2. Can't wait to see this one, I love a helicopter. Glad you're feeling better.
  3. I've only just caught up with the end of the Wyvern and you're already 6 pages into this build! Hope you're soon back on-par Ced.
  4. <forming the following sentence with care> Lovely job on the rims Bill! I'm really enjoying this build. Chris
  5. There's a number of pieces that make up the rear rotor shaft assembly. They're layed out in the instructions like this. But as there are no linkages supplied, what it doesn't tell you is that part 76 has to have a particular orientation to part 61 so that eventually it's posts will line up with the control arms on the rotors. As I mentioned before, with some parts the correct shape is in there somewhere, it's just left to the modeller to reveal it... Here's a picture showing the extra plastic that comes with piece 76 and is neither on the diagram n
  6. After the Kittyhawk Jaguar, I wanted to do something from the rotary side of the house. I had a few options in the stash, but @perdu made a lovely job of an Apache, so I thought I'd give that a shot. I have the Revell kit, having previously read on BM that it has all the defensive suite parts to make a good job of the British version. Despite that, there's relatively little aftermarket available so I'm using the PE & make for the Hasegawa kit, Armoury wheels, Rotor Craft crv-7 rocket pods and some Eduard Hellfires. First job, as always is the cockpit. There are d
  7. Hi Kev, thanks for the link I've been watching your thread with interest, it's going to be fascinating watching it come together. I'm not very good with Jag squadrons, but doing my research I found lots of shots of XZ358 with Recce mission markings and / or pods, so hopefully I'm not too far wide of the mark. Best of luck with your build.
  8. Thanks everyone. RFI : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235085240-diplomatic-service-jaguar-gr-1-from-the-148-kittyhawk/
  9. Continuing my theme of aircraft in the reconnaissance role, this is my Jaguar GR-1 "Diplomatic Service" built from the Kittyhawk kit with some AM along the way. WIP: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235075120-were-going-on-a-jag-hunt/page/2/ Hope you like it Thanks
  10. So all that's left to do on this beast is a few today up jobs. First, some lenses in the lamps on the u/c door. As I mentioned before the kit items were awful and went in the bin but here's a before and after with some 2.5mm silver backed lenses. Next was the arrestor hook which also embed up in the bin, but this time it was probably my fault do being ham-fisted. I made that one out of .8mm square section rod. I found it really quite difficult to find pictures showing exactly what shape it should be and how it fits at the fusela
  11. Great stuff! Looking forward to seeing this one. You always find a good balance of realism and interesting visuals but I have to say you really do have a knack for making fabulous seats.
