  2. Hi There, About a year ago I got the nerve up to post my first build here. Tonight I have finished my second Spitfire but this time in Turkish Colours. This one has been put together in secret as it will form part of the Christmas Eve Box for Innis, my nephew who normally helps with the builds. The kit was an Aldi special, Painted with Tamiya and Vallejo ModelAir. Decals from Tigerhead. I used some of the Airfix stencils and you will notice that I got the walkway ones completely wrong. Hey-ho Stuff just happens. As always Thanks for looking. Cheers, Alistair
  3. I second that emotion as long as I am allowed to have Joan Armourplating playing in the background
  4. Hi There, Sterling work so far. I've got this on pre-order just now so if it's alright I'll follow this to give me some pointers*. Cheers, Alistair * Ideas that I can steal of course.
  5. Thanks for that. Your undercarriage is beautifully cast and really easy to fit. Cheers, Alistair
  6. After my sojourn with the Vulcan I decided that something mad was needed. I picked this up from Tiger Hobbies at a very good price as the box had been water damaged and figured it would be a good candidate for the Red Skull version from Captain America. It was a fairly easy build mostly out of the box except for brass undercarriage from @Ali62 at Aerocraft. After reading the reviews i thought it would need the extra strength and these are superb. She was painted with UMP Primer, Tamiya Nato Black, Tamiya Red, Vallejo Metallic Aluminium and Vallejo Modelair RLM66. The Transfers were home made (Really need to buy a circle cutter though). She was finished with Galeria Satin Varnish. I didn't do any weathering as She was factory fresh in the movie. So, on with the pictures. As always, Many Thanks for looking and any comments or criticism welcomed. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Hi there, I've had similar issues with Ultimate primer (Same Stuff) and found that the plastic needs a good clean before application of the primer. I give the surface a wipe with ultimate airbrush cleaner. The bottle especially the white needs a long shake to mix it properly. Then I use 20 to 25 psi on the airbrush but misted in 3 or 4 light coats the first being a tack coat to give the further ones something to really grip to. There is a video on line from the International Scale Modeller Channel which shows in detail how to to get it right. Hope this helps Cheers, Alistair
  8. Hi there, I think it may be this. Modelcraft super fine detail brush It's available from various suppliers. Hope this helps. Cheers, Alistair
  9. Hi there, Superb work on those Arrows. Haven't had the time or courage to attempt mine yet but you may have given me a push. Cheers, Alistair
  10. Thanks for that. To be honest it's so big it was the only way I could get photos here as the weather is pretty rotten at the moment. (On my days off too - there's a surprise) Cheers, Alistair
  11. Thank you Your Vulcan certainly looks very very professional and is a credit to you. Cheers, Alistair
  12. Thank you very much Many Thanks. The kit requires time and a lot of filler but is well worth the effort. I have various other East fortune Aircraft in mind, namely the Komet and the Concorde amongst others. As an aside I was talking to some of the staff at the Museum and they told me that it has now reached the top of the NMS funding list and they have purchased some adjoining land to build a new hangar. This will be for all their civil aircraft including the Concorde. The current Concorde hangar will become a cold war hangar with the Vulcan brought indoors and the paint work restored. that also means that the Buccaneer and the Phantom will be taken out of mothballs and displayed properly which made me a very happy bunny.
