  1. I built that one some time ago, didn't realise the lettering wasn't supposed to be green! I actually like these models straight from the box, warts and all. Takes me back I guess.

    Lockheed Hudson, Mk. I

    What a lovely job. The weathering particularly looks beautiful.

    So sorry to hear this Keith. Heartfelt condolences to you and yours.

    Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N

    Beautiful job Mark. I really like the weathering.
  5. A lovely pair! Personally I don't think one is superior to the other - both look great.

    Airfix Hurricane MkI

    Cheers Mark. I live a couple of miles from Kenley aerodrome, and in the other direction, about five or six miles from Biggin Hill, another Battle of Britain aerodrome.

    1/72 Fabric wing Hurricane

    Beautiful job Chris. Nice to see somebody really do the kit justice - unlike myself!

    Airfix Hurricane MkI

    I just checked this stuff out, looks very helpful! I'll order some when I get home. Thanks very much!

    Airfix Hurricane MkI

    Thanks for the all the constructive help chaps, much appreciated. After some previous advice I now always gloss the plane before decals and then matt over but still sometimes suffer from the dreaded silvering. Any way round it? I've started an Airfix Mustang now - so watch out!
  10. Just finished another LIDL buy, basically a couple of hours OOB (and probably shows!) I've never built a Hurricane before although I always intended too. I like the look of them and remember seeing one flying at Biggin Hill in the '60's. This model has a resonance to me as it depicts a MK I of 615 squadron Kenley in August 1940. I live a mile or two from the old airfield and often drive past. I tried a bit of lining in the recesses for the first time and it is fair to say that some bits worked better than others. The tail wheel is missing as one of my Grandchildren decided to take it for a test flight! Helpful criticism always gratefully received - I need all the help I can get!
  11. That FROG DH Rapide is lovely Tony but I have never seen those Humbrol paint bulbs before (I started early '60's) - how interesting. Love this thread and always look forward to new content.
  12. Very nice job. I've just finished the 1/72 version. Not as good as yours though.
  13. Beautiful job Johnny!
