    Airfix Anson 1/72 1970's boxing

    Beautiful build and I like the weathering effect very much. It's great to see what can be achieved with an older Airfix kit. My congratulations.

    Hi Joachim, I had fun researching this one on the internet and watching the videos as well. Looks like I have set a benchmark for my future and regular builds !! Best regards Colin.

    1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400

    Hi all and many thanks for your kind comments and likes much appreciated ! Any help with applying the tiny brass parts would be most welcome, please. That's a first for me as well, thank you for your comment.

    A lovely build Sir ! And in different U.S.N colours, thanks for sharing it. I too have built this kit, it is very nice and well worth purchasing even just for the stash. Regards Colin.
  5. Hi Keith, A lovely build Sir ! You beat to it as I am just starting my one... I think I am right in saying that Special Hobby are going to release further boxing's of this kit with African decal options in it ??? Thanks for sharing it, Regards Colin.
  6. Below is my completed 1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400 in The Royal Thai Air Force colours. I thoroughly enjoyed building this kit, yes, it's a short run kit, but, with patience and plenty of dry runs, trimming and very little filling you can achieve a good result. This aircraft is a real tail sitter and you need to be creative as to where you put the required ballast, I use a product called RIPMAX and white glue to fix it in. Comments welcome ! Here is the etched brass fret included in the kit, I was unable to use the small aerials as they were way beyond my modelling skill and patience, any advice gratefully received on how to use them please, thank you.
  7. I would like to see a built up Pavla one as well please Sir
  8. I will be venturing into 1/48 scale for this release, particularly the military boxing's and can I assume their will be more than one military boxing ?? Can I hope for a new kit of these in 1/72 as well ??
  9. It's coming along nicely this project and I am impatient for it's release date !
  10. Me to, so much so that I have pre-ordered my copy at the big H, well done Dora Wings and I am looking forward to receiving this kit and their other releases when available.
  11. I am really pleased that you had the patience and courage to see this one thru, despite the issues you have done a wonderful job and thanks for sharing it with us FYI: I did have one order, but, choose to cancel it as I had previous bad experiences with one of their kits. Best regards Colin.
  12. But, there are others as well...
  13. Quite agree, go on do it I will be.
  14. Sir, I am very pleased to see your decal sheets coming for this kit, on the second sheet will there be options for Devon/Dove in foreign service please ? Best regards Colin.
  15. Hi Pat, I forgot to mention regarding the red and yellow vichy stripes, you can get a couple of Print Scale decal sheets for the Heller 1/72 Moraine Saulnier MS406 and Dewoitine D.520 that as the red portions available as a decal, so much easier than hand painting the stripes, or my way would be to paint just the yellow portions and chicken out from painting the red stripes... I have decided to build a couple of Texans, then do the Potez twins. Best regards Colin.
