  1. Outstanding work! Very skilled and precise! Excellent BoB-themed group.
  2. Excellent build! I never tire of all the P-47 schemes and liveries we can build! Very nice work indeed.
  3. Excellent! I've managed to resist the temptation to acquire this kit (I think there's a civil version available). But I would have to bring my A-game to get it anywhere near as good as that! I'm also one to like heavily weathered aircraft too.
  4. Brilliant! Your skill and precision on 1/72 scale (my favorite for aircraft) is obvious. And the Mustang is such a beautiful aircraft, to me at least! My preference is the pre-bubble P-51B type, although I can't really explain why. Just a fantastic collection of beautifully built P-51's!
  5. Hey, @raafbloke, I just read your rundown (above) on your intended build of General Blamey's personal transport. The kit's not for me, but I whole-heartedly support you in your endeavour and hope to see it when you've finished! Clearly you're well researched and it will be a fine tribute to the RAAF big bombers and their crews and support personnel. Wishing you good luck with it!
  6. That's a very tasty looking kit! I don't think of myself as a massive Dornier fan, but nice kits like this can sometimes hold sway over whether or not I'm a fan of the type.
  7. Sounds as if you were sitting next to me when I built my first models!! Except I didn't have pointy scissors - I just used our kitchen knife to cut things off the sprue. I'm lucky I didn't do some serious damage to myself using that knife! Man, it was good fun though!
  8. Keen to get one of these! Is there any chance a civil version is coming?
  9. Looks very nice on the sprues! At the risk of appearing ignorant and uninformed, are these moldings all KP's or are they somehow related to Airfix or Special Hobby?
  10. Another excellent NASCAR build! Right up 'til about the mid-2000's the Revell stockcar kit releases were a big part of the hobby! After that, the licensing costs (all those sponsors wanting to be paid royalties on kit sales) and a huge market in diecast cars seemed to knock a hole in the kit sales. Well, that's how I see it, looking back. However, I still have a tidy collection of unbuilt kits and aftermarket decals to keep me going!
  11. An amazing restoration job! Glad you kept some "before" photos to see where it has come from.
  12. Awesome work! A fine tribute to the Pearl Harbor battle.
  13. Looks great! Well done! Can someone tell me - the nose leg extension was a Navy innovation to assist take-off lift - is that correct?
  14. Really cool seeing something like this - just a little different (or a lot, depending on your view)! Would look great in a diorama of a dusty, desert compound. Great work!
