  1. Great finish on the model, unique scheme. Also featuring on Pprune I think ?
  2. Very nice indeed Ian. The colour scheme and finish is excellent on this. This too is my first and only F15 kit only mine is not built yet and still in the stash. After this I am tempted to see if I can find it.
  3. My build experience of the P80 first time around was remarkably similar to yours Steve. Your new one looks amazing, love the paint job, great finish. Maybe I should have another go. Colin
  4. Loved the erudite introduction Edward, the Orwell quote was new to me. Like all of us he had successes and failures, good points and bad. strengths and weaknesses, was loved and hated. But his life had an impact that was writ large on the course of British and World history from the Boer War to the Cold War. As for the Lightning, my first encounter was at RAF Coltishall in the late 60's- after that forever smitten. Following your build with great interest. Colin
  5. Two top notch models. Having built several JPs of varying quality I think yours is excellent. Colin
  6. Absolutely beautiful, great looking model and what a wonderful WIF. I would love to have seen thisat an airshow, but 9 Lightnings, a 10 minute routine, would hate to have to pay the fuel bill.
  7. Excellent modelling Mark, really subtle and effective weathering. A fine tribute model.
  8. Following this with great interest. You are doing a grand job. Colin
  9. Superb modelling again, well done sir! I would love to see pictures of them all together. This must be one of the very best air war films.
  10. Absolutely love it- so realistic- modelling and photography is excellent. Well done sir!!
  11. Beautiful shots of the Typhoon formations Mark. Would be interested to know what camera and settings you used. Thanks for posting. Colin
  12. Ace photography Mark, thank you for posting.
  13. Absolutely stunning skills and attention to detail. Following this with admiration. Colin
  14. These look really good. Anyone would be happy to have built to such a standard let alone built at sea with limited resources. Very impressive!
  15. I too remember this from the old days the canopy definition wasn't great then. You have made a good job of this, well done sir.
  16. Lovely job! Well made and well painted. Nice to see a Chippie in the early paint scheme.
  17. Thanks for posting Leigh. I agree the Mustang yop shot is very good but the Hurrican with the propellor vortices is an outstanding piece of photography. Colin
  18. Thanks for posting these. Great photography and some lovely shots of the Suisse team. Colin
  19. Thanks for posting - fantastic colour schemes. Colin
  20. What a great 'what if' I always wondered why they didn't try putting Merlins in when the original engines didn't work out. Nice to see what it might have looked like. Colin
