  1. Before time runs out... Wishing for some helicopters Ka-50, Ka-52 and the like are seriously unloved by model companies...
  2. Did anyone built this kit already? I wonder how good the fit and details are.
  3. Thanks for hosting this GB! Congrats to everyone who managed to finish in time... and everyone else who did their best
  4. Thank you guys! The build itself is done (pictures to follow) but since I wanted to prime the model before painting and the primer usually needs a night of curring, I'm not sure this is going to end in time Maybe I can give up on the priming and be careful with post-paint masking...
  5. Hey, Although time and my slowliness are very limiting factors in this GB, I decided to [cheap maxims mode on] try and fail rather than fail trying [cheap maxims mode off]. The candidate in focus here is the 2006 Revell 1:144 scale Tornado ECR. A marvelous little kit that was on sale yesterday in the only shop selling scale model kits in my area. Here is the mandatory opening picture from this morning showing proof of date and the unstarted kit: ...and here the content of the box:
  6. Thanks Pat for the answer! I was asking because I'm not sure I'll be able to finish the build until Monday evening so I'm also considering it for the Less Than a Tenner GB.
  7. This one comes with perfect timing. I was about to start a quick build as a break from the main build this weekend. Thanks for organizing it! Sorry if I missed this information but are we allowed to post the same subject in two group builds? Thanks, Cristian
  8. Matching paint and decal colours seems fun to do The split cockpit glazing equally so... After having seen one in flesh in a museum, this was a must build but this scheme scares me off a bit, to be honest...
  9. Very nice build and equaly creative photography! Congrats!
  10. I wonder if there is enough place for small DC motors (6mm diameter, 10mm length) to fit in the engine bays... Would make a nice "functional" model.
  11. Any news on this one? I remember there was a test build shown several months ago...
  12. The number of "grooves" is different. This is why I thought they were different sizes.
  13. So the left one is the 0.2 nozzle and the right one the 0.4? That does look not OK indeed. I usually spray half a cup of airbrush cleaner before disassembly and never had any problems with stuck parts. Then again, I tend not to leave paint in the brush for too long after I finish spraying.
  14. They still seem rather hard to get so you might have bought too many Jokes aside, have you built one already?
  15. No worries about hijacking the thread! That needle seems to go way too far, indeed. At least compared to my Evolution.
  16. From the description I would try replacing the nozzle cap seal, as well. But first make sure the cap seal is sitting correctly and that the cap itself is tightened correctly.
