  1. This is my first armour build, let me know what you think.
  2. Love it. Where on earth will you find the space to display that beast?
  3. I look forward to seeing it. The Nieuport 11 is one of the better Valom kits. I thinned the tail pieces, adjusted the cowl length, but other than that the basic shape is really good, checked against scale drawings.
  4. Very good. I agree the desert scheme looks awesome. It's an especially impressive finish for brush painting in 1/144. It's nice to see this kit built up as I just got hold of on of these E-day kits. I'll be building the Avia CS-92
  5. Thank you. Indeed, good fun kits! The P63 King Cobra is on my list, doing the clipped wing air race version especially.
  6. Well done. This is now my favourite build I have seen this year, I just love it.
  7. Thank you for the kind comments. They are incredibly small, The vacuum formed canopies I made, for example, are too small to insert a match head! The R2 has full cockpit interior, but you basically can't see it...
  8. Certainly, I believe their introduction had a very big impact on aviation design in the 30's generally. I love the chubby and awkward designs of the 30's, perhaps they remind me of myself.
  9. Finished my latest build. 1/144 Dora Wings kit. Fantastic little kits, I modified and added details.

    1/144 kits

    Northstar models do a fantastic Pflaz E.IV if you can find it, very good resin and PE. Regarding Valom kits, some are good, some are not and require extensive modification to make any sort of decent model.
  11. This is finished, which can be seen here:
  12. As discussed in my A5M4 thread I thought I might do another Japanese fighter. As I had a detail set for a Zero, that's what I'll do. I have several sweet Zero, including a floater but the individual packs annoyingly don't have hinomaru, so the only option was the boxed A6M3 in the grey/green scheme. As is sensible tradition I start with the office.. The Griffon photo etch set works wonders and speeds up/looks better than what I normally spend days scratching.
  13. Thank you Michael, that will be very useful. I know Japanese aircraft research can be a bit tricky, but it seems a clearer picture is appearing now. Thank you for sharing.
  14. Always 1/144 for me I have a good amount of interest in Japanese aircraft and I have some other great 1/144 kits, so expect to see more soon. I might do the early George as the Platz kit looks phenomenal.
