  1. Looks spot on. CMK do a flap set for the gr3 with a replacement vertical tail which I have for my next gr3.
  2. Forgot about that, its 1.5mm short
  3. The airfix harrier is the best in 1/72 IMO and builds up well but be aware of the airbrake insert needs work to fit flush or it will be bellow the surface and there is gaps on the wing roots, I used 0.5 mm plastic card in these. Otherwise is a good build.

    My Finnish “Mersu !”

    Good new, rumours is that Eduard are releasing a Bf109g6 or g10 late this year or early next.
  5. That impressive and the support barrel looks spot on too
  6. Will watch, want to add another P38 to my collection but just cant find the Academy kit anymore so will intrested how the Hobbyboss kit builds
  7. Nice swift good work

    Nostalgia Airfix BF 110 - 1/72

    The kit shape wise is good and goes together pretty well but otherwise basic. Make for a quick build.
  9. So for this years first WIP I wanted something smaller than the B17 I've just finished and strangely ended up with 4 Japanese aircraft. First was the Airfix B5N2 Kate, followed by 2 Airfix Zeros from Aldi for £5 each and finally the Hasegawa KI61 Tony I picked up second hand for £8!. I have picked up Eduard seat belts for the Zeros along with new decals, a set of ski's, interior etch and decals for the Tony as the original decals look quite poor and the Kate has the Eduard etch set but will use the kit decals as they are good.

Resin ski's and Rising Sun decals look good.

IMGA0684 by neil Connor, on Flickr 8 bits of etch and a piece of 0.8mm wire later, looks more like it.
  10. 8-07 has been clear coated and decaled ready for next clear coat. Engine and cowling fitted. IMGA0750 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0751 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0752 by neil Connor, on Flickr E-110's white band are on ready for its clear coat. Small repair needed on the underside where the light grey peeled. Engine and cowling fitted. IMGA0753 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0754 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0755 by neil Connor, on Flickr
  11. Got the yellow leading edges done and E-110 has a yellow tail band done as well. E-110 needs it white stripes on once the yellow has hardened. IMGA0749 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0748 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0747 by neil Connor, on Flickr

    MiG-15 (Lim-1), Eduard 1/72

    I found on some (larger) eduard decals need a little help into panel line with a coctail stick while still warm and the decal solution microsol.
  13. Been off sick with the flu for the last three days but unable to do any modelling because of it. Managed to some spraying today at least on the two Zero's, aircraft E-110 still need the wing leading edges and some whit band on wings and fuselage while aircraft 8-07 just need the wing edges before it will be ready for decals.

Going to be built hopefully for the Sharkmouth GB IMGA0746 by neil Connor, on Flickr

    Ark Models 1/48 Yak 9

    Lovely result
  16. As I wasn't happy with the Zero's paint yesterday I mixed some Tamiya Nato Green and IA Grey until I got close to the H Model decal instruction indicated colour and sprayed both Zero's this afternoon. Also sprayed the engine cowls, first is the standard black and the second a dark plum red. IMGA0740 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0741 by neil Connor, on Flickr Much happier with the primary green, will go much better with the darker green.
  17. Been a bit busy so work done until today, got some colour on the Kates cockpit and made a start on the etch. Nicest set from Eduard yet. IMGA0734 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0735 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0736 by neil Connor, on Flickr Also got some paint on the first of the Zero's, I have to admit I'm not sure about the colours on the upper surface. I used IA Grey and olive drab but they look to stark together so will probably change when I spray the second Zero. I will probably go for softer edges rather than the hard edges on this one IMGA0737 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0738 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0739 by neil Connor, on Flickr

    Hasegawa Typhoon Mk.IB

    I thought the same when I used it last year so I used a brown oil wash to dull it down a bit https://flic.kr/p/LUuzTt
  19. Serge has a good point, bottom left scheme then
  20. Centre right looks particularly effective and eye catching

    1/72 F-86A-Matchbox kit

    Sabre's always one of those aircraft that looks right from any angle, yours is shaping up nicely

  23. Just finished this one, Hasegawa's 1/72 Ki 61 Hien or Tony. Originally released in 1973! the Hasegawa kit has fine surface detail on the outside but the cockpit was a seat base moulded to the floor and didn't even have a control stick. Used Eduard photo etch (long out of production) for the cockpit and Rising Sun's decal set with ski conversion (also out of production) Considering the kit was older than my wife it built up pretty well, the plastic was quite hard compared to more recent kit's I built but cant tell if this was down to age or how Hasegawa made it. Time had not been kind to the kit decals and could only use 4 of them, everything else just broke up when being moved. The kits canopy is very finely molded and crystal clear. The aircraft represented seems to have been a test aircraft as I have only managed to find one picture of it which shows it in pristine condition hence the models un-weathered finish. Painted using Tamiya acylics. As usual any comments welcome.
