  1. Errrr.... What can I add? that has to be one of the best F-4 models I have ever seen! Incredible weathering techniques and bare metal work.
  2. Well that got my attention! Superb modelling and what a great scheme!
  3. Now that brings back memories of my first large Airfix kit!! Hand-painted in Humbrol paints and hung from my ceiling... But it was nowhere near as gorgeous as this! I really must look in the local model shop and see if they have one in stock, such inspiration!
  4. Late to the party but then I'm late back from work... This made me smile so much! Brilliant idea! Hang on, wooaaww! Slow down! that was originally posted in 2008!!!! I really am late to the party!
  5. Hi from a Brit Abroad! (France) I love that movie too!! In fact I only watched it again a few weeks ago. Beautiful work!!
  6. Despite the challenges, you've turned out a real beauty there!
  7. I know it’s a cliché, but the Spitfire is easily my favourite single, piston-engined aircraft ever. I particularly like modelling and seeing modelled, the lesser known marks. Yours is a real beauty! One of my favourite spitfires displayed either on this forum or others! Superb in every way! I hope you don’t mind but I have shared the pictures on my Instagram account, mark_the_modeller
  8. Thanks guys! A massive change in domestic circumstances and a house move have all affected progress, but I will get there! I promise!!
  9. Absolutely superb! I have always loved the Marauder and that is just simply beautiful!
  10. Wow!! It's about time I finished something too! But what a gorgeous little aircraft and yep, never heard of it either.
  11. You've certainly done a great job on the kit, but your choice of decals was inspired!!
  12. Wow!! Stunning F-14 and a real inspiration for me to get started on something again!
  13. Hi Diogo! from me, an easyJet pilot based in Lyon and regularly (well, I used to!) fly into Oporto
  14. Hi Giorgio, Thanks for your reply and apologies for my late response. I have access to most brands here in France but Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya are my preferred paints. I can order Xtracolor as well.
  15. As the titles suggests, I’m starting a thread concentrating on the aircraft of the Royal Navy 814 NAS. The reason being is that my son has served with them now for nearly three years and I would like to get back into modeling and this seemed a good idea to start with. The first question I have then is in reference to the Wessex HAS.1 and specifically the best paint matches for the blue / yellow scheme? Which paints best match this scheme? Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas to you all!
  16. Hola Miguel from me in France!
  17. My son's with 814 NAS and I'm now looking at doing a 1/48 history of the squadron. It's great to see that a RN cab can be build from the Airfix kit! I'll start on Tamiya's OOB Swordfish first and work my way forward! But seriously, that has to be one of the best scale model helicopters I have ever seen, absolutely stunning!
  18. Funnily enough I am just going through a deep-clean of my modelling area and started to arrange the stash that I have long neglected and came across this very model! It has always been a very attractive little aircraft to me and one that I always meant to build on a small diorama base. Now I have exactly the inspiration I need! That is simply a stunning piece of work!!
  19. Wow, Andy, just simply Wow!! That is one of the best finished WnW kits that I have seen on here and quite possibly one of the very best model aircraft I've ever seen. It could easily have been the original aircraft photographed in a studio setting and no-one would be any wiser. Anyway, there are few superlatives, certainly none that I can think of, that would do your work justice.
  20. I’m very late to the party on this one, that is absolutely stunning, you could almost chuck your flight suit on and jump in!
  21. Please, please, please!!! In these times of doom and gloom let there please be the bright shining light of a Meng (Wingnut Wings) DR.1 to tempt me to spend more money with Duncan!
  22. Here's a good site referring to the Austrian Airlines fleet of A321s https://airlinesfleet.com/austrian-airlines-fleet-airbus-a321-details-and-pictures/
