  1. Quite right, it is the knowledge that something is not quite how you want it that ends up wasting so much time which could be spent on the bit's that people do see.
  2. I have reached the end of my patience with tiny little bits, flying left and right then playing hide and seek and winning! So this is as as far as I can go (a few levers missing in action), onto the seats next before this can be finished off. Although I say that and look at the images and see all the flaws .....
  3. Whilst some filler dries on the wings, a bit of a play with the self adhesive photo etch. Easier to put on that I expected but very easily chipped at the edges, some touching up required at an appropriate point. Must remind myself not to enlarge the image, all the flaws leap out
  4. Thanks guys, finally found that Light Admiralty Grey is available in the Lifecolor range (UA633) so just waiting for that to arrive. However, this weekend I need to pull my finger out and get back to moving this forwards.
  5. Lovely model, makes me want to add a Sea Vampire to my shelf.
  6. Yes, the challenge now is to make it look suitably grubby! Does anyone know what colour the surface of the wing fold is painted in, light sea grey ?
  7. Lovely job there! I love the Buccaneers shape and having heard of the trials of the old Arifix kit, I am awaiting the long promised Tanmodel 1/48 but great to see such a nice job done.
  8. I have been watching yours for a while as inspiration so I am looking forward to it being completed ! Hopefully Friday if the weather is good, will head over to the Midland Air Museum at Coventry to have a look at theirs.
  9. Next step some filling and sanding of the wing surfaces as Airfix have kindly left some raised areas as well some dimplesĀ·

    Hasegawa spares

    I am in a similar position with my Hasegawa RAF Harrier GR Mk.7 where I have split the forward canopy. Amerang had looked, said they do not have the part and when I asked about getting them from Hasegawa ,I have been directed to the Japanese website. Sadly, about as useful as a chocolate teapot especially since Royal Mail stopped doing international reply coupons at the end of 2011.
  11. She is going to be with her wings folded and I didnt like the Airfix details so have enrolled the assistance of the Wolfpack WP48128 kit. Verses a real one, thanks to the FAA Museum.
  12. The postman has just delivered some goodies, only the Eduard 1/48 de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW. 2 Ladder left to arrive.
  13. A quick dry fit and a side to side illustrates quite how big the Vixen is.
  14. Having been a Navy brat and spent some time in myself, I have always been fascinated by their aircraft but strangely always have built RAF models. However this is about to stop and Fleet Air Arm all the way now, starting with the wonderful Sea Vixen which has always been a favourite of mine, probably because my father was on carriers. I vaguely remember going onboard HMS Eagle when she returned from the far east in 1972 and seeing these mighty beasts has left a lasting impression. So the fun begins !
