  1. Quite a productive year, including many that have been lurking in the loft for years.

  2. Another Cold War jet. This is Kittyhawk's Jaguar T.2, always the nicest looking trainer version of any single seat aircraft. Not the easiest kit to make, in fact it is overengineered in many places, consequently fit can be iffy at times. It's finished as XX836 "AZ" of 14Sqn in the late 1970s. Decals from many sources as the kit decals weren't great. I had/have difficulty in getting the cockpit canopies to stay open. I'll have to work out a remedy later. z20191219_133636 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133643 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133649 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133704 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  3. One I've wanted to build for ages. I got a Hasegawa FGR.2 version at Telford and courtesy of Xtradecal I was able to put together a model of one of the aircraft of my childhood. A few minor alterations were needed to make a FG.1 from the Hasegawa kit, some of which were in the box but some weren't, like the correct tailplanes. Anyway here it is, finished as XV571 "A" of 43 Sqn in the mid 1970s. z20191219_133530 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133523 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133513 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133506 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr With the 111Sqn version I made a couple of years ago z20191219_133547 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  4. An attempt at the early issue of the Eduard Fw190A-8. Decent kit but with a few tricky fitting bits, not least the engine bay. Finished with a mixture of Hataka, Vallejo and Xtracrylix and the kit decals. z20191110_001544 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001527 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001518 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001503 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  5. One that seems to have been in the stash for ages. Decent enough kit but with a few tricky metal etched bits and pieces. Finished in Hataka acrylics with Peddinghaus decals. z20191110_095320 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095314 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095308 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095302 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  6. Yes I did. I modified them as best I could. I looked at using the original kit wings but the modifications were too much, They would have fitted better though.
  7. The newish kit from Airfix. It is a pretty good kit with decent fit all round.. It's finished in the markings of NH926/P 28 Sqn RAF Tengah 1947 from Xtradecal sheet 48130 and painted with Hataka Acrylics. z20191018_111604 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111545 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111537 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111524 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. Eduard Profipack of their first incarnation of the Bf109G-6. I believe this kit has some inaccuracies but it looks fine to me. It's finished in RLM74, 75, 76 with Vallejo acrylics and the kit decals in the markings of Bartel's aircraft of JG27 in Greece in 1943. Nice well detailed kit, a little too detailed in places. Some parts are so tiny I could barely see them far less stick them anywhere. z20191005_155245 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155238 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155230 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155221 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  9. Latest effort Eduard 1/48 Fw190D-9, built out of the box. Finished in a mixture of Xtracrylix, Hataka and Vallejo paints. Nice kit although I struggled with the forward fuselage a bit with poor fit I think as a result of me changing my mind about dispalying the gun bays. z20191005_155336 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155322 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155315 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155307 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  10. Thanks for that. No real issues around the nose. The etched metal aerials needed a bit of care though. They are very fine. Indeed. I'm not a great fan of panel washes at the best of times.
  11. Firstly the Dragon Me262A-1a. Not the easiest kit with some poor fit in places. Lots of detail and some very small etched metal parts. Finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours in an RLM 76, 81 and 82 scheme with decals of Yellow 5 KG(J)6 from Xtradecal sheet 48-179. z20190908_202705 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202649 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202640 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202630 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr Secondly the Hasegawa/Dragon Me262B-1a. Essentially the same kit as the A-1a with some extra bits. Again finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours. Decals again from an Xtradecal sheet. z20190908_202908 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202858 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202846 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202832 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  12. Thanks for the comments folks. much appreciated. After a Blinder and a Backfire, I want to add a Bear and a Blackjack but space is becoming an issue......
  13. Yet another long term stash resident gets built. This is the old Esci Tu-22. I have no idea on its accuracy but it builds quite nicely and needs only a small amount of filler. One build note. Leave the engines off until after it's painted.... It's finished using Iraqi decals from the Revell version of the kit. The colours were a bit of a mystery so I've gone for a green scheme that appeared in a few photos. z20190814_195950 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195924 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195913 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195903 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  14. Go for it. It isn't too bad. The only issue is its sheer size.
  15. I've built a Mk.XII using the Grey Matter conversion and a PR.XIX, using the Warbird conversion, both using the Hasegawa Mk.V or Mk.VI kit. In both cases I also bought a set of Grey Matter "C" wings, modified a bit for the PR.XIX. A better base for the PR.XIX would be the Revell Mk.IX. I've built the Pacific Coast Mk.XIV as well and found it a reasonably easy build - if you can find one.
