  1. Nice build, I spent my adolescent years not far away from Upper Heyford and remember them flying overhead almost everyday.

    Milton Keynes Show

    We enjoyed the show (three generations in attendance) it was rather toasty. Nice touch having three Star Wars guys there, went well with the theme of my lad’s comp entry.
  3. Too true about the score, it really makes the film...off to google now..

    What are you reading?

    Ready Player One and Jaguar Boys. Shame about the swearing and sexual references in the former, my 8yr old was desperate to read it but he’s not growing up that quick...yet

    Spitfire Mk.1a BoB - WIP

    I think mine is suitable for all scales up to 1/24

    Spitfire Mk.1a BoB - WIP

    What about a blob of superglue gel? Or try softening some sprue and pushing it on a cheese grater hole of suitable size?
  8. They look fantastic, could you share how you did the finish on the inside of the nozzles? Hang on, looking again at the WIP looks like it was white with a wash

    Oh I think you can put a drop of washing up liquid in the paint mix to break the surface tension. Other than rubbing the paint down...not easy on a small model and then a coat of clear gloss, sounds like the oven cleaner thing is the way forward and start again

    When you say wasn't sticking do you mean it was going patchy as you brushed it on? If so this was probably the mound release on the plastic, next time give the kit a wash in warm soapy water before construction. Humbrol paints need a bit of thinning before use, the acrylic ones can be thinned with a bit of water.

    Tamiya MiG Fulcrum 29 1:72

    It would be interested to see one of these built alongside the Airfix version... I assume this is an italieri/tamiya warbird? Does it have raised or recessed panel lines? The cockpit has come up well.

    Revell 1/32 Lynx HAS.3

    Nice work, although the Lynx isn't the biggest helicopter in the world it still takes some room up...
