  1. Hi All, its been a long time since I posted anything on the forum, that's because I've been working on this one for the last few months. I had made my mind up to finish every model in my modest stash and this was the last one, that is until Aldi once again starting selling their pre Christmas cheap Airfix models. I really enjoyed the build, it went together really well with very little filler used anywhere. Midway through the build I was disappointed to read that this is not a very accurate representation of the 'Belle,' so I think I will have to build another. any recommendations on a more authentic model would be appreciated. Anyway, this one was built completely out of the box and painted with Tamiya, Revell, Humbrol and Vallejo acrylics. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome. I hope everybody out there has a brilliant Christmas and New year.
  2. Thank you, the instructions call out for 20 grammes spread between the nose and engine nacelles, I managed to get 25 crammed into the nose and it's plenty.
  3. I've got be honest I read a lot of threads on here, yours included, and struggled with whether I should attempt to age and fade the finish when I wasn't happy with the OD, but I've wrecked so many models with the weathering that I shyed away from it. But your rendition is fantastic.
  4. Thank you, on the box it does say easy assembly, but it's not as simplistic as the Airfix snap together kits. Just a nice well engineered model to work on. Thank you.
  5. Thank you, I've never built a Monogram kit, but if this is a typical Hobbyboss kit I will be building more of theirs.
  6. Hi All, this is my latest offering the Black Widow. Another aircraft I've been wanting to build for some time and the first time I've built a kit by HobbyBoss. Got to say I was quietly impressed, the kit is well engineered with little or very little flash, so well engineered that I found even a coat of paint can affect the fit as I found when I tried to fit the engine into the nacelles and got into a bit of a mess. Built out of the box apart from some Tamiya tape seat belts and I fashioned together some different antennae as I didn't like the photo etch supplied with kit, painted with Tamiya acrylics but I think the colour on the upper surfaces may be a bit dark. Anyway here she is and as usual all comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking
  7. Thank you, I do like those big Russian jets.
  8. I don't know if this is one of Airfix's new tools but all of the sprues were very crisp and the model went together with very little need for filler. Unfortunately when I unmasked the canopy there were a couple of small pieces of white Tamiya tape on the underside. every model provides learning opportunities and I wll make certain in future to check before I glue them into place. Once again built entirely out of the box and painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.
  9. I have been wanting to build one of these for quite a while and I wasn't disappointed. I build the majority of my aircraft in flying pose and I have to say these were the best fitting undercarriage doors on any model I've ever built. Once again built entirely out of the box with just just the addition of a pilot and painted with Tamiya acrylics. Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are welcome.
  10. Hi All, I haven't posted for a while, quite simply because I haven't got around to it, so here are three of my latest builds for your perusal. This is the MIG-31 by Zvezda, this is the first time I built a model produced by this company and I have to say I was very impressed. Very little flash and an excellent fit for all the pieces. Built entirely out of the box and painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. Thank for looking, as usual all comments and criticisms are welcome
  11. Hi Everybody, here is my latest build, not my usual scale but a thoroughly enjoyable build. Built entirely out of the box, just the addition of some scratchbuilt harnesses and buckles. Painted with Tamiya and Revell acrylics. A few pictures of the interior before it all gets closed up. I know the buckles are not correct but this was my first attempt at making them. I decided to paint the instrument panel rather than use the decals. Thanks for looking, as usual all comments and criticisms are welcome.
  12. Hello Everybody, this is my latest offering, the Thunderbolt II or 'Warthog'. I wanted to build this one just because it was different and I wanted to attempt the colour scheme. It was built straight out of the box with just the addition of a pilot. I made work for myself because I wanted to display it flying, and obviously the wheels do not fully retract, also I decided to show it with the flaps / air brakes closed and that went horribly wrong ! I ended up virtually rebuilding that part of both wings. top and bottom with plasticard, in fact the whole thing was retrieved from the bin twice. Given those problems I am quite pleased with the way it has turned. it was painted entirely wiyh Tamiya acrylics. Anyway here it is, as usual all comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking.
