    Airfix B737-200 USAF T-43A

    Well I missed the deadline totally (not a surprise for me at the moment), but she is now decalled, just awaiting the antenna and undercarriage.

    Greg Drawbaugh came through and sent the replacements like the legend he is. Now the logos are in the correct font, let decalling commence!

    Airfix 1/72 McDonnell Banshee

    Well, after dropping the model from a height of 2 inches this happens: Marvellous. Now to reglue, fill, rubdown, repaint...

    Progress is being made, albeit slowly. The wings and tailplane are on, with a bit more work required on the filler.

    Airfix B737-200 USAF T-43A

    Hi guys, Painting virtually done, almost ready for decalling. There will be a slight delay with the decals as I have discovered that one of the "US AIR FORCE" logos has been printed in lower case. I contacted Greg Drawbaugh who apologised profusely and has offered to send a new set asap. As soon as I receive these I will crack on.

    CMR 1/72 Jet Provost T3

    Hi Guys, My apologies but I am going to have to postpone building the JP due to work and other building projects. One of these is a Shackleton which I have been asked to build for a friend's father, which I shall use as the JP's replacement. To that end, do I need to create a new topic or can I amend this one?

    Hi guys, Apologies for the lack of progress, work issues are taking over my life! Anyway, some progress is being made, hopefully things will be more expeditious from now on.

    Anigrand C-141B

    Hi guys, Over two months late and not a great job but here she is. Most of the decals went on well but some of the walkways and the upper "USAF" logo have silvered somewhat. I had a few issues with the canopy and various errors all over but I have learned quite a lot from my first resin build. My missus likes it so I guess that is what counts!
  9. I love Canberras, I will be watching with interest for when I build mine

    Airfix 1/72 McDonnell Banshee

    Well, I have made a start! The cockpit has been painted and the fuselage joined up as you can see. My main issue will be not destroying the fine raised panel lines which detail the kit beautifully (to my eyes). I am hoping to get more done over the weekend. Dave
  11. Phenomenal! That really is an amazing collection, nice work!
  12. Hi guys, I may regret this, but I am in with the CMR JP which I bought prior to Airfix releasing their lovely kit of this aircraft. I understand it builds up well, but this will be only my second resin kit so please bear with me! I will finish it in the colours of a Church Fenton machine (airframe to be decided), as it was a chance visit to the SSAFA display in 1979 that started my love of aviation and shaped my life accordingly. To that end I will endeavour to make a good job of it as CF will always be close to my heart. Dave

    McDonnell F4J Phantom VF 31 Tomcatters

    I was wondering where the Phantoms were! Looking forward to this one
  14. Hi guys, I am in with this old girl. Mixed emotions with this one, I bought it at Shoreham approx. 10 mins before the nightmare events took place. Still, it is a kit that I always wanted as a kid but never had so will endeavour to do a good job of it.
  15. I have an old LS 1/144 P-3C in the stash, so I'll join in with that if it is ok.
