  1. Got the Revell boxing of the 1:2700 Star Destroyer for Christmas. Wondering what are the best options for detail parts are? So far I have found the Falcon resin sets for engine bells and hanger, and the Green Strawberry resin and PE sets. Anyone have thoughts on which of these are worth looking at, or whether there are some other options?
  2. Indeed. Some modelling has occurred. Screens look good. Did anyone else get a bit distracted over Christmas lunch when the pigs in blankets were dished out?
  3. Well, will you look at tha... ...oh. I seem to have spent a week away moving house, and nothing has happened at all! One can only hypothesize that Ced has spent the week using the new larger car boot to stock-up on Bratwurst.
  4. Sounds like even more work than just modding the intakes.
  5. Great repairs. She'll be airworthy again in no time.
  6. Well well. It stands to attention all by itself. This is what I mean. The bottom lip of the intake goes smoothly back from the front in a single shallow curve. It looks like your lip takes a pronounced kink at the front like: ⦧ Or maybe I'm mis-reading the profile of yours?
  7. It's beginning to look a lot like avro Looking great, Steve. Given you've started painting, I'm guessing the answer to my other question is no. Have a great holiday.
  8. Just my opinion, but I think the real things look a bit more like they have a squared-off lip at the front than they actually do due to the way the shadow falls. It looks like yours may be trying to mimic that phantom profile. Like the bottom lip goes up, then rolls off flatter. Does that make sense? Hard to tell from just the front-on photo.
  9. Was the mono a jet? I ask as there doesn't seem to be prop, and - even to someone lacking in an aeronautical engineering background like myself - it seems unlikely that this setup would fare that well when racing. Are you planning create the stretched skin effect on the tail with bondo like you did for the former for the cockpit sides?
  10. Thanks Johnny. Nearly-ish there. Had to put everything on hold for bit as we finally exchanged on the new house - moving next Thursday. PANIC! I put all my modelling stuff in boxes last night, updates to the Tiger will hopefully resume in the holidays.
  11. Well well. Will you take a look at that. We finally get back to modelling, and it's a triumph. I think it's captured the lines on the original pretty well. But enough about the Enterprise, your intakes also look OK, Ced.
  12. Still no sign of Captain Nimrod? How sad. I propose we hold a minute's sausage at 11am tomorrow. Silence. Yes. Silence. A minute's silence.
  13. Still no word from Ced. I think that means the escape room has become his tomb.
