    BAe Hawk - Red Arrows ***FINISHED***

    So I've managed to get the Hawk finished and she is now entered in the gallery. That's another completed GB - I'm starting to worry that I'm getting the hang of meeting deadlines So I got all the little bits and pieces added to her, a light panel line wash, matt coat and then canopy masking removed and here she is - not a bad little model all in all.

    Nakajima Newbie - Airfix 1/72 B5N2 'Kate'

    I'm now up and running working on the Kate since the end of the BM 10th Anniversary GB. I've made progress on all the interior and have now basically got a completed tub and fuselage ready to be fastened up. The only thing that will need added is the rear machine gun. This is a really detailed model for the scale and I think Airfix have done a cracking job in squeezing as much as possible in to a small space. The only addition I've made to the kit OOB are some PE seatbelts. So here's where I am at the moment:

    Well I've managed to get her completed (phew) - close to the wire!!! I've uploaded the 5 pics into the gallery but I've got some more to share with you here also. I've really enjoyed this kit and apart from a couple of bits of filling and sanding I've had no problems at all. Here goes:

    Eduard's Bf110E (Profipack)

    Ok folks I'm back with an update on the 110. Been really busy lately so have not had as much time at the bench as I would have liked - especially when I've got 4 GB's on the go at the same time So I've manged to get her into the paint shop and have added some items such as the undercarriage, and then the bombs in preparation for a gloss coat for decals. Once she's been glossed and decals added, I'll be able to get the weathering and panel lining done and the canopy uncovered for the home stretch. So here's where I am at the moment: I'm working on getting her finished as we speak so hopefully the next set of pics I'll be uploading will be for the gallery. Happy modelling folks and hope to update you soon Kris

    Zvezda 737-800 (My First Airliner)

    So I've finally managed to get back to my 737 in between all the other GB's that I seem to be getting myself involved with Here's a quick update of where I am. I managed to get the cockpit glazing masked and fixed in place and then did a lot of work on seems and gaps with filling and sanding where necessary. The fit of the kit is excellent but as this is an airliner, I want to try and get as flawless a finish as possible. After all the remedial work, I've managed to give her a blast with some primer and this is where I am: I've now moved on to getting the engines put together and have got the parts painted up ready to throw some glue at them: Next step is doing a little remedial work to the engines and getting them attached to the fuselage along with a few other smaller items and then I can start getting her painted up. Hopefully I'll have an update sooner rather than later!! Kris
  9. So as I mentioned in the GB Chat, I've never built a Japanese aircraft to date, despite having been modelling for many years. I have about 3 in the stash but had just never got round to getting one on the bench - so with the Carrier GB afoot I thought this would be a perfect baptism of fire for me. I've decided to go with the following kit with this being one of Airfix's more recent new toolings. It's full of detail and should be great kit to start my foray into Japanese types. Here she is: So here goes and wish me luck - hopefully I won't let the side down for all those fans of Japanese aircraft. Thanks Kris

    BAe Hawk - Red Arrows ***FINISHED***

    Thanks Cliff - yeah the decals were faultless in that respect. I was really worried I'd end up with 'pink' white markings but not the case at all.

    Thanks Col - yeah I think I got carried away and then realised I hadn't posted an update lol

    BAe Hawk - Red Arrows ***FINISHED***

    Since my last post I think I got a bit carried away and have lurched forward a fair pace to where I am now. The canopy is attached and masked, everything has been sealed, sanded and primed and then I've managed to get the red paint on as well as the landing gear and a few other bits and pieces followed by a clear coat of Tamiya X-22. I've then managed to get all the decals on which went on without any hassle at all. One thing I will point out is that the large white arrow on the underside of the fuselage is only catered for if you are doing 'wheels up'. For some reason Revell have omitted to include decals for the undercarriage should you choose to do 'wheels down' as the white arrow decal passes over the undercarriage. So the photos below show where I am to date and then moving forward it will be a case of adding some of the smaller items and finishing off the undercarriage etc and then she'll be all done. Here goes:
  15. Hey Rich, Please can you count me in for this one - I'd like to enter with this: I've never built a Japanese aircraft to date so I thought this would be a perfect chance to kill two birds with one stone for this build. Thanks Kris
