  1. I wasn’t sure in which forum to post this, Sci-Fi or Figures, so I flipped a coin and here I am. This is a resin and metal kit I found on eBay and as I wanted a break from my current build I thought it would be a relaxing interlude...wrong! It’s quite an involved build with a lot of tidying up to do on the resin and metal parts, and then there was the drilling and pinning of the parts to contend with. It’s painted with a mixture of Humbrol enamels and Tamiya acrylics (applied with brush and airbrush) with a final coat of Humbrol Matt varnish to seal it all in. I’ve since noticed that on the photo the shoe laces don’t show very well although they do with the naked eye. I used a soft pencil to highlight them so maybe I need to rethink my options. Anyway, here’s Marvin the Martian looking very malicious, look out Bugs!
  2. That’s a really nice F5, very well done sir!
  3. That’s a really cracking model you’ve made and it’s nice to see that Revell have supplied the correct engines. Very well done! I also like your idea for masking off the nose leg. There’s just one minor I may have spotted; it looks, from your photos, like the leading edge of each fan blade is a different colour to the rest of the blade, similar to the GenEx engine with its composite fan, but on the R-R XWB (as used by Air China) each fan blade is all metal and thus one colour. Bill.
  4. It may be small, but it’s perfectly formed. Nicely done!
  5. Fantastic model, and you must have the patience of a saint to do all those tiny aircraft!
  6. I can imagine how much time and effort you spent with that build as my father made two similar ships many years ago, so congratulations on an excellent model.
