  1. Hi guys, unfortunately my father is in hospital with a major chest infection amongst other things, and not looking to leave there for some time. Another complication is that he is in Leeds and I am in Fareham, meaning that my days off and a lot of my spare time is either up there or running around trying to sort things. I am trying to squeeze modelling in when I can but obviously this is not a priority at the moment. This is affecting the Canberra, FW190 and TU-22 as well, but I will post updates as and when I can.

  3. I am mid painting at the moment, work and my father being ill have delayed my modelling at the moment but I am trying to get back on top of it. Pics to follow
  4. Well guys, I have made a start. Revell have split the fuselage in the "top and bottom" format, which for me left a step down the front right hand side. Thus has now been rubbed down, so I am going to have to rescribe some of the detail. Fortunately the panel lines are engraved which will make life easier.
  5. Nicely done Ian, you will have to build the new Revell one too!
  6. I have an old SU24 I would be in with. Dave
  7. I would be up for it. Dave
  8. KP 1/72 Mig-15 Uti in DDR markings, not the best kit I have built with not great results, but here she is in all her glory. Just realised the underside of the fuselage by the jet pipe is cracked from when I dropped it. D'oh!
  9. Thanks Cliff, and now I am finally finished (for the purposes of the GB). As I said before, the decals are wrong and the canopy is a terrible fit, both of which I will address in the future. The fit of parts was not great and it is definitely showing it's age, but it looks like a Mig 15 Uti which is the main thing. A skilled modeller with more time would undoubtedly make it sing but it will look ok on the shelf.
  10. Getting towards the end, and it has been a bit of a fight. The canopy is a terrible fit, and I will have to address it in the future as I do not have the patience at the moment. The purists will not be impressed as the roundels are incorrect (they should have a black outline), but I can live with it for the moment. I still need to apply the number on the nose and a few aerials but almost there.
  11. I have bought a new canopy from Rob Taurus, which looks pretty good compared with the kit one. Annoyingly there is an indentation at the top which is probably transit damage so I will see what I can do.
  12. Intakes done and primed, now ready for the camo.
  13. Awesome job, you have done 602 proud!
