    Get your Wingnuts Brisfits while you can!

    Wow, that's wonderful ☺ a hell of a stash. They are certainly an exciting set of kits. I can still remember getting my first one. I can spend hours just looking at the boxes and browsing the instructions and Wingnut website. Things of beauty. Cheers

    Thanks chaps. I know its a long way from a lot of the builds on here but im getting there. Am enjoying the hobby more and more since coming back to it a couple of years back. All the best, Martin

    Italeri Tiger 1/35

    Thank you for your kind words, in excellent English may I add ☺ I've only just started posting pics on here as I don't think most of my builds are good enough. But I am getting better I think. Best wishes to you, Martin

    Got one last year, it's on my to do list. Maybe I'll open the box by the next world cup. Beardie, do you mind if I ask how many Wingnut kits you have? They fascinate me and I'm up to 8 now. Cheers,Martin

    Italeri Tiger 1/35

    Just thought I'd post a few pics. Am still experimenting with weathering and panel washes etc. after not bothering since I got back into the hobby. This was my first attempt at individual track links as well which is far from perfect. I do love the Tiger, it's iconic and looks so, so menacing. All the best, Martin

    WW1 Diorama

    Thats really fantastic. So much detail to get lost in. I love the rust, wine bottles, the cracks in the plaster, in fact I love it all ☺ Congratulations on such a brilliant build. All the best, Martin

    Wingnut Wings Fokker E.111 late

    Thank you so much for your kind words. As i mentioned above, i find the rigging quite calming, although admittedly I haven't done any too challenging jobs. Cheers, Martin

    Wingnut Wings Fokker E.111 late

    Wow, thank you so much. Oh I'm very much hooked, have 7 others in my stash, I first bought an FE.2B but I'm saving that as the rigging diagram makes my head spin. I'm currently making Camel Clerget and loving every minute of it ☺ Thanks again, Martin

    I got one of the crosses a bit skew whiff on the underside, hence no pics I used knitting in elastic by strick elastic, it's maybe a bit white in colour but I tried to dab some Ali paint on the lines to dull them a bit. Cheers, Martin Thanks mate.

    Thanks mate, Wingnut Wings are great aren't they. I went a bit mad last year and brought 8. Am currently making a Camel Clerget. All the best, Martin

    Many thanks Dave I think the hardest part was trying to get a good picture, still, im happy with it. All the best, Martin
  13. Hi all. I've been a member here for a while and up to now haven't contributed any pics. Have been a bit nervous as a lot of the builds on here are top class. I was quite happy with this build so thought I'd post some pics. There's a ton of errors, had trouble painting the Tamiya acrylic, lost a foot plate to the carpet monster but really enjoyed building it. I loved doing the rigging, found it therapeutic in a way, satisfying when you let go of the tweezers and see it done. I apologise for the standard of pics, am a bit of a novice with a camera. Thanks for looking. Cheers all, Martin

    Matchbox 1/72nd Westland Lysander MkII

    That's a cracker. I love your pictures, it's such an iconic aircraft. May I ask what you use for the grass, it looks great. I'm currently debating whether to get the Eduard 1/48 version. Your build has made my mind up. All the best, Martin

    Brief guide to using Flickr

    I'm getting old was well. Or maybe not getting as I actually am old I think my posting problem was I didn't have the pics in my flickr account on a public setting. Anyhow it seems good now, just have to take better pics and post them in the RFI section. Many thanks for your help, all the best, Martin
