  1. Hi there, I have used the same Vallejo set on my Hurricane except for the underside and think that what you are seeing is a colour cast unless it's a funny batch. Vallejo have the reputation of being a bit iffy regarding colour matching but the Set here seems pretty close to me. Cheers, Alistair
  2. Hi there, A stunning example of my favourite Vulcan I still go and visit her regularly at East fortune. Cheers, Alistair
  3. I'm glad it wasn't just me then. Thanks Thank you and Yes it was the Winsor & Newton Galeria. Thanks very much and yes it was a very nice kit to throw together Cheers, Alistair
  4. Thank you so much Many Thanks Thank you. I found it a little challenging to get the fuselage halves together but I'm pretty sure that was down to my inept fingers rather than the kit which apart from that went together really well
  5. Hi There, Well, believe it or not, this is the first Hurricane I've ever built. Built being a loose term for my attempts When this arrived in December 2018 the wee man asked me if we could build it with this particular scheme. This build also got stalled over Christmas and the New Year when I was frozen in fear about doing the Invasion Stripes on the Dakota. It's now finished and will be given to Innis after school today. Some finished pics. Thanks for looking Cheers, Alistair
  6. Thank-you and you really should I'd be very interested to see them. Cheers, Alistair
  7. Cracking job. It's always a treat to see a Vulcan.
  8. Many thanks. They both talk about it quite a lot. Thanks so much. Innis has already decided that he wants to join the RAF. Thank you. I've a few more planned from my time in the Air Cadets that we got to see and fly in. Cheers, Alistair
  9. Hi There, So, last year when the Dakotas were at Prestwick I took a run through on the Saturday with Innis and his pal on what turned out to be a particulary typical Scottish summer day. We were able to get on board D-Day Doll which for me was wonderful as I've always loved the Dakota but for the kids it was an incredible experience, especially when they were told by the crew of her history. D-Day, Market Garden, Bastogne and the Berlin Air Lift. The crew were available to talk to and for questions and spent a lot of time with the kids making them feel really really special and for this they have my undying gratitude. Anyway as I had an Airfix Dakota MkIII in the house I went hunting for Decals for this Aircraft. I knew that I didn't have the talent or skill to covert it to a C-53 but tried to give it the impression of one. This build stalled over the Christmas and New Year period. I told myself it was because I was making sure that I was finishing the Turkish Spitfire in time but the truth was that getting the invasion stripes done was terrifying me. So, no extra window on the port side and the rear door isn't right but I'm pleased with it despite the flaws and The Wee Man is utterly delighted. OOB except for the Decals fromKitsWorld Thanks very much for looking. Cheers, Alistair Just realised I've not unmasked the landing lights...... bit of a red face here now Edit:- I've just noticed* that I've placed the upper wing Insignia on the wrong wing...this will be rectified *It was pointed out to me and I've no idea how I managed it other than I'm a complete idiot.
  10. hi There, Producing models of such extremely high quality is far from pathetic output. Stunning work, Sir If my brutal attempts looked half as good I'd be over the moon. Cheers, Alistair
  11. Sterling work Sir, but that Duck is simply stunning just gobsmackingly beautiful. Despite what you say about the Xtreme Metals there it says more about the builder to me than the tools. Cheers, Alistair
  12. As with your erudite and entertaining build logs your finished product is exemplary and God help the rest of us if these are badly done. Happy New Year to you and yours, young man. Thanks for all the help that you didn't know you gave me. Cheers, Alistair
