    U-991 1/72 Type VIIc U-Boat - Revell

    wow seriously impressive attention to the detailing and fantastic paintwork, bought this kit second hand a few years back but had way to many parts missing so binned it, think its time to find another one. really impressive work
  2. one day I will escape the dolls house and get on with some modelling

    Photo etch cutters

    superdrug nail scissors have worked well for me, although I did have to buy the missus a new pair to stop her moaning when she had to search the man cave for them.

    are there 'good' and bad CA superglues?

    ive had good results with vitalbond CA, it comes in various viscosities and so far has stuck pretty much anything I've tried it on, from the millennium falcon partwork mainly resin bits and bobs, plasticard and a white metal cooking range for the other halfs dolls house

    Advice for 1st DSLR

    i can recomend nikon as I bought my first DSLR a coupla years ago a D3100 and still quite happy with it, a note on extra lenses, i got a mint 70-200mm nikkor lens for 70 quid on ebay. might be worth considering that approach whatever brand or model you plump for in the end. matt

      thanks Col will have to do a wip next

  13. okay so popping the posting cherry with tamiyas 1/48 lanc with extra bits and bobs thrown in generally the right places. namely the eduard cockpit detailing set and landing flaps, new barrels for the turrets courtesy of Hannats the brand escapes me but bloody gorgeous bits of turned brass they are, the decal set including 'Lonesome Lola' delivered to my mucky dabs by way of Kitsworld and a type D bomb trolley with cookie bomb by flightpath again from Hannats its a build that started some 7 months ago although to be fair there's probably only about 2 months actual work been done, gotta love the distractions of work, missus, and various really should get on but ill do this instead things. only got a few pics nearing the end of the build as my old laptop decided to go on permanent strike with the rest of the pics on and some bright spark forgot to back them up! So I didn't really take much on as my first foray into PE and weathering here's a couple during the decaling process https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2277&authkey=!AOjgSEvbDx5kxgA&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2272&authkey=!AG0kmq3HpEDcPHY&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2276&authkey=!AEyRQS5dYXapM28&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG and after https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2274&authkey=!ALmijkV5HWYC0jY&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPGhttps://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2271&authkey=!ANnUy_UA8sCG13w&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ and on a roughly knocked up base that originally was intended to be a concrete dispersal area with a tractor to go with the bomb trolley but I couldn't find one for less than about 80 quid and didn't find the time to play around with scaling down and scratching the concrete https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2266&authkey=!ANZk8bywtDdSNUk&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2269&authkey=!AIpTto2f4AZklAk&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPGhttps://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2307&authkey=!AMrZtZOpWQECIAI&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2304&authkey=!ADa2O9ofLOid294&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=9810129D57482670!2306&authkey=!ALBU5i2omvrLh74&v=3&ithint=photo%2cJPG​ any comments, questions or advice good bad or indifferent are most welcome, I just wanted to share what hopefully just for now is my most accomplished bit of man cave mayhem Matt
  14. very nice paintwork there Christer, I use the Vallejo range myself and get on really well with them all apart from yellow in any brand lol. looking forward to the big finish

    Airbrush help. Neo.

    oops got confuddled I'm on about the nozzle cover being sealed with waxy stuff, really must read things properly, its me age. the nozzle itself has still got the o-ring and mine has no sign of damage, probably due to the Vallejo use. I'm going to bear in mind about the harsher cleaners if I start using different bits and pieces though. I'm probably biased towards this one as its the one after my nightmare airbrush lol
