    Tornado GR1

    The pilots are Revell NATO set with ground crew, to be honest I wasn't that impressed with the detail and I had a hell of a job getting them in there, Navigator wasn't too difficult but the pilot was a nightmare, he has no legs and no hands!

    It's the Revell GR1 1/72. I've seen the desert storm version on here as well and fancy having a go at it.

    Tornado GR1

    Hi Gang, here is my latest offering the Tornado GR1. I didn't have any strong views either way on this aircraft when I started to build it, but I must admit it has really grown on me during the build even though it turned out to be a labour of love! I suffered one or two setbacks during the build which I will not bore you with, so the purists among you will find some glaring omissions and mistakes so I apologise now. I have a couple of criticisms of the kit, the plastic on top of the air intakes or the engine nacelles (I think that's what you call them) are so thin you can see daylight through, when you apply glue to them they deform. Also the instructions for placing the decals are unreadable, so unless you know something about the aircraft (which I do not) there is a lot of Googling and guess work. All that aside i have enjoyed the build and I am quite pleased with the finished model. Have a look and see what you think, as usual all comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking.
  5. Absolutely brilliant!!! Nothing more to be said.

    1/48 Apache AH-64D - Hasegawa

    Really impressive, only built one chopper so far but will have to have a go at this one.

    Another (yawn) Spitfire

    Excellent, I really like your little diorama. I agree with you about the little pots of paint in the Airfix starter kits, I have had some success with them when thinned with windscreen wash but the finish does feel gritty when sprayed.

    Hawker Hurricane Mk1

    Thank you everybody for the very nice comments, much appreciated.
  10. The Hawker Hurricane, not my favourite aircraft but it seemed wrong not to have one in the collection and this one was not without its issues. I had to use a lot of filler where the front of the wing assembly meets the fuselage, but I'm prepared to accept that could have been to my modelling skills. What wasn't down to my abilities was the stress fracture running across the middle of the cockpit canopy and the chunk missing out of it, but all credit to Airfix I had a replacement part within 72 hours. However, whilst I was masking the replacement canopy it just fell in half. So having acquired another replacement it felt like I was dealing with dynamite masking the third one. So here it is in all its glory, I'm fairly pleased with the result but I need to find a better way of masking the glazed areas I don't seem to be able to get the crisp lines I see other modelers achieving, anyway thanks for looking all criticisms and advice welcomed. Next project will be a Tornado G.R.1, something a little more testing. Watch this space.

    1/32 Ju-87D T6+AD

    Excellent, I really like the colour scheme I'm tempted to try it on a 1/72 I have in my stash.
  12. Absolutely brilliant! Nothing more I can say.

    Zvezda 1/72 SU-27 SM Flanker B

    Excellent, this one will be added to my wish list.
  14. Thanks everybody for your very kind remarks.

    Airfix 1/48 Scale Dogfight Double

    Excellent, I built these two last year and got into a mess with the Spitfire scowling and couldn't do the mottling on the 109. I take my hat off to you!
