  1. Fine build, and thanks for the intriguing and informative background details. Really enjoyed this. Thanks for posting. Q
  2. Airwaves still do PE saws, looks like 10 or 5 thou. https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=362775&code=&product_type_id=&scale_id=&keyword_search=Saw&setPerPage=25&currency_id= Q
  3. Admirable, and I really like the grey Lightning schemes. Wouldn't it be great if Airfix would reissue it? Surely still a good seller and a good commercial move?? Hopeful Quack.
  4. Thanks - slow is my default pace since retirement. Thanks - testing times ahead then. No problem - I'll probably manage to fall into all sorts of traps, and helpfully show you how not to do it! Thanks all. Q
  5. Thanks @Jabba, and thanks for the link. I've looked at a few build threads now, and the useful YouTube videos by Scale Model Things. Just need to give myself a kick and go for it! Q
  6. Troubled times here at Quack Towers. The drawbridge is once more raised against the Villagers who stand sullen and staring with flaming torches and pitchforks, mumbling about the Evil Doctor and his wicked experiments. Their complaint this time seems to relate to the Doctor stealing a maiden from their midst and keeping her against the will of the Elders. "But she quite likes me!" I argue. "We've been married now for 32 years and have two wonderful children!" They finally shuffle morosely away mumbling threats about returning with Hoisin Sauce. Seems to happen every year o
  7. Interesting photo - I take it that's a Khama-Khazi????
  8. Astonishingly good. The time and effort you're putting in is certainly paying off. Surely this is the definitive "how-to" masterclass. Q
  9. I agree with the others.......after all most of us are "average guys" doing our average builds, usually having returned to the hobby with newly acquired fumbly fingers and defective vision! The WIP is a great way to get advice on a build as you go. Looking forward to seeing things develop. Q
  10. Love your final result, and especially the Suez warpaint scheme. Good job sir. Q
  11. Thanks - I've probably got enough black stuff for now. May need to bite the bullet and try mangling the Revell Tornado........... Thanks. Now, thanks to word-association, I've got this irresistible urge to convert it into some weird, mad, sinister business jet!!! Q
  12. Loving it even more now that it has it's Suez warpaint on. Nearly there. Q
  13. Yup........forgive my so-called sense of humour - sometimes it embarrasses even me. Thanks. I must admit the scheme was one of the reasons I built it. Q
  14. Thanks for the generous comment @stever219. The box contains markings and stencils for the black jet with white wingtips, as here.......I'd really need to research whether the markings would be appropriate for the camo era - though I vaguely remember that they had low vis roundels etc. Q
  15. Thanks for the kind comment. Appreciated. Thanks - it's a fairly quick build. For most modeller. Probably. Let us see it if you succumb to your temptation. Thanks Ali. Appreciate your kind comments, as always. Thanks, Marc. You may have noticed a lack of close-up shots!! Thanks for the Likes and comments, folks. Q
