  1. Wow! It was an epic build leading to a superb result. Thank you so much for sharing this, I enjoyed the whole thing.
  2. Really impressed with the polished metal effect on the engine and spinner. Ingenious approach, and great result overall. Thank you for posting!
  3. I have traversed the foothills of 3D printing and design, and I think you've made really impressive progress. Good result! More power to your imagination. I'm tempted to suggest you have a go with ABS: downside is shrinkage, upside is acetone smoothing and generally being able to use solvents which work with polystyrene.
  4. I'm all eyes! I am considering taking the plunge back into modelling with the old 1/72 P1127. And I had the old 1/24 Harrier back in the day.
  5. Sweet builds, and very nicely photographed. Thank you for posting.
  6. Thank you! I assumed it was based on careful research. I wonder what causes that.
  7. Lovely build - I'm intrigued by the band of heavy weathering aft of the cockpit and the streaking from the jet intakes...
  8. You had me at the cockpit: I just want to go for an intercontinental ride on one of these things now.
  9. I was struck by the underside shot: very tidy result and unexpected too!
  10. Masterful result; so much to be impressed with, but I'll just ask one question. How did you do all the teeny-tiny autumn leaves?
  11. Wow! What a brilliant project! I'm surprised I've missed it all this time, but will be checking in from time to time. Love the nostalgia, obviously, and the nicely defined aesthetic you bring to the whole enterprise. Those bagged Wildcats take me straight back to HE Figgures on Lymington High Street.
  12. Gorgeous models. Makes me almost wish I'd been an air cadet. Also makes me want to go and see what plans are available for balsa and tissue versions
  13. That all looks astonishing! I love the extent to which the inner structure of the aircraft is modelled and shown. Question: is that a special aluminium tape, or can you use the regular industrial tape? Does it need to be specially thin?
  14. Superb result. Something about the way you've treated the skin of it is jaw-droppingly convincing: seems to have side-stepped scale effect.
  15. I had to look twice at the photo to work out if it was a cartoon or model, so from my point of view you have achieved your objective. I like the way you've used the linework and flat colours; makes a nice change from models being pushed to look like an oil painting.
  16. Well that's a very nice build and nicely shot. I must say that Airfix's toolmakers exercised some artistic licence with the stone walls - no way was that layed in courses!
  17. Many thanks! Top presentation of some childhood favourites.
  18. Very sleek! Great result.
