  1. Hi guys, As per my note on my other f-4 build, this will not be completedon time. Good luck with all yours! Dave
  2. Hi guys, Please accept my apologies but I am not going to finish any time soon. Following the death of my father in May things slowed down, and after returning from holiday to find I have to have my little hound put down amongst other issues, my mojo has definitely left the building. No doubt it will come back at some point but I definitely will not be doing any modelling for the time being. Good luck with the builds. Dave
  3. I am thinking a 56 Sqn machine in the grey scheme. At the moment I have only built up the cockpit, but will hopefully progress over the next couple of days. Pics to follow.
  4. I have assembled the fuselage and attached the far superior radome kindly supplied by John (rs2man). It has taken a bit of fettling to blend in but it definitely improves the shape of the old girl. I need to do some cleaning up now before I progress further.
  5. I was going to build this as an aside to building the Matchbox kit, but it seems daft not to have it has a build in it's own right. I originally bought the kit from a gentleman on here (embarrassingly I have forgotten who), and as it didn't have the original bix, he threw in some "Alcock & Brown Special" decals (which I won't use). Some of the parts are off the sprues, and I have sprayed some areas white in readiness, but nothing else has been done yet.
  6. Being a Matchbox kit, the cockpit is beyond spartan. Luckily, the seats in the Aeroclub improvement set are rather detailed and add weight to the nose. Due to laziness I will not be adding the grab handles, but even without they look a lot better than the kit seats!
  7. I am slowly camming her up but I will not get her finished on time. I will post pics as soon as I am done. Dave
  8. Well there is no chance of me getting any of these finished on time now, but things are moving. The old girl has a coat of primer on now.
  9. I am surprised I missed this. I have a lot of resin kits; count me in Dave
  10. It does look a lot better! PM on the way....
  11. I will be in with this old girl, along with the Aeroclub improvement set and Modeldecal decals. I am probably going to improve the nose by taking a copy of a Fujimi kit and blending it in. Pics as promised. I have the a set of the Fujimi Alcock and Brown decals which I will never use so if anyone would like them, PM me. I think I will build the Fujimi kit alongside this one; I have realised that I do not have a built-up F-4 in my collection! Time to remedy that!
  12. Well, I have a little more time so she is primed, with only a couple of areas to address.
  13. Hi guys, as with the SU-25, my free time is massively limited at the moment but have made a little progress this weekend. The main parts have been assembled (yet more filling and cleaning to do), but she is starting to look like a Canberra.
  14. Hi guys, It has been a while since my last update due to the sad passing of my father. I am still running up and down the country sorting things out, but I did manage a little time out this weekend and made a little progress. The main assembly is now done (still some filling and tidying to sort) and she is starting to look like a Frogfoot.
