  1. Hi All, The strip part is obvious in the pics but the tease is where are they all going some blurb about a survey but does anyone know ? Just a few from the mant pics I took last Wednesday. Hope you like them. MODeller
  2. Hi John, Glad I found this WIP AFTER I completed mine or it would have stayed on the shelf of doom! Excellent work and it was nice to have a chinwag at Cosford, by the way those IKEA crates you showed me, I have just won a pair of them on ebay for a grand total of £2,70, my son will pick them up for me so no postage! Hope to see you at MK next weekend. MODeller
  3. Hi All, Here is my recently completed Italeri Wessex 1 Commando which I thoroughly enjoyed making. Lots of small extras have been added to enhance the kit and note the early aerial fit. I found some photos of the actual machine which was sadly lost with all onboard after a collision with sister ship.Revell Aqua used throughout with Beige 36314 and Bronze Green 36165 for the camo which I think look spot on. Who would have thought that a company would release 3 different versions of the Westland Wessex so thanks to Italeri ! Hope you enjoy this one as much
  4. Given that it is a new mould kit I was hoping for more refined mouldings, guess the aftermarket boys will make a killing! MODeller
  5. A very nice pair of Provosts and regarding vacform canopies Aeroclub did one CO 32 not sure if it is still available though. MODeller
  6. There is a write up in todays Oxford Mail, the scheme celebrates 28 Sqn centenary which was last November but could not take place at the time Chinook lurking at the back of photos. MODeller
  7. Just seen this flying into RAF Benson whilst in the garden with my grandaughter, for once I had a camera handy! MODeller
  8. Hi All, Here is my take on the 1/24 Fujimi Ford GT40 Le Mans winner 1969, a nice kit apart from the rubbish see through decals which were replaced with a set from Hobby Link Japan along with a small etched set. If you are building this kit I would recommend fitting and fairing in the front lights first as the clear covers do not fit too well other than that the build went smoothly. I have used Humbrol acrylics 47 and 18 for the body with several coats of Alclad Aqua Gloss over the top cut back between coats with Micro Mesh, One of my favourite cars in the best colour scheme and there is anot
  9. Hi All, Here is my recently finished Boscombe Down Britannia using the excellent 26 decals set which performed faultlessly. The Roden kit went together well with just a small amount of filler around engines and a smidge on the wing roots. Usual acrylic paints used, Revell Aqua, Humbrol and Xtracrylics. Now awaiting the release from Mikromir of the Argosy! Hope you all enjoy this one! MODeller
  10. Hi all, Just finished this Alleycat conversion on the Airfix B2 Canberra, not the easiest to do as the replacement cockpit section did not want to play but I eventually beat it into submission! Inspired by seeing the real thing at Bruntingthorpe but took too many photos with too many details on! Paints used Revell Aqua, Humbrol Acrylics and Xtracrylics with the markings coming out of the spares box. A very pleasing result but I could have spent a lot more time on it but ended up just wanting it finished! MODeller
  11. Nice kit ! Shame about the tiger striped finish! MODeller
  12. Beautiful result Wally, very inspiring! MODeller
  13. Hi Ray. the Minicraft top radome was too skinny and the side view curves not right so I added plasticard and filler to reshape, bottom radome I just blended in to the Revell fuselage. Have you got "Legend of the sky Constellation" by Dominic Breffort a book I go back to time and again a true work of art! Search Hannants site for 1/72 C-121 and see what goodies are available for the Heller kit, you get a SEA set of decals on the Caracal sheet and I can recommend the Plus Models replacement engines. MODeller
  14. What you need is the Corr-u-gator from Paul at Little Cars, see his site in the traders section below. MODeller
  15. Pen and Sword just emailed info on the RNAS in First World War (Jarret) Nov 30- 2015 as being available is this what you are after? MODeller
  16. Actually Toms Modelworks now do all six sets in a special for $70 plus postage SPL-007 Titanic Set which is a steal! MODeller
  17. Hi, Toms Modelworks do several individual sets which could be purchased over a period of time to spread the cost, good quality and at a reasonable price compared with the Gold Medal offerings. Both companies are based in USA and I am not aware of any UK stockists at present. MODeller
  18. Try Alclad Chrome with a couple of protective coats of gloss varnish, worked a treat for me! MODeller
  19. Just like to mention the excellent service that I have received from Ady at Hannants who chased up a couple of missing sprues in one of my Fly Wessex kits, they arrived today safe and sound direct from Fly, now a very happy customer ! MODeller
  20. If the RAE one is an option I would take a set. MODeller
  21. If you scroll down that link to plans there is a book featured on how to scratchbuild one of these boats, according to the reviews it is very helpful. MODeller
  22. Is this the kind of boat you are thinking of making? https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Free+Lobster+Boat+Plans&qpvt=Free+Lobster+Boat+Plans&qpvt=Free+Lobster+Boat+Plans&FORM=IGRE MODeller
  23. That looks great despite the experten. Hope mine will turn out that good! MODeller
  24. Hi Seadog, I only use acrylics that will thin with water as I work indoors and have COPD. The best range I have tried is the Mr Hobby Aqueous one which are now re- appearing in the UK but they do niff a bit so I stick to Revell Aqua, Humbrol Acrylics and Xtracrylics , these are all stocked by Wonderland Models (Edinburgh) but if you buy in bulk the postage is reasonable. I have the cheap Expo spraybooth and now use a 3M 06941 dust mask which has a carbon filter inside that removes any nasties. MODeller
