  1. Thanks for the comments. A special thanks to Sylvain Hautier of Syhart decals. His sheets are well designed and laid out with great fit and instructions for complex schemes. Great masks included as well.
  2. Thanks folks. Yes it's a decent kit with plenty of options.
  3. This is the Kinetic Mirage 2000 in 1/48 scale. Decent enough kit with no real problems. Finished in the Lafayette 100th anniversary markings seen in 2016 as part of the RAMEX Delta team. The decals are from Syhart and are excellent. The finish involved some reasonably complex masking but the masks are provided in the decals set and work very well. It was my first (partially successful) attempt at a the graduated finish from black into grey. aa20221117_211449 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20221117_211441 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20221117_211426 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20221117_211416 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20221117_211408 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20221117_211508 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  4. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Much appreciated.
  5. My latest effort. This is the Hobbyboss 1/48 Rafale C. Overall a nice kit with some odd fit problems that may have of my own making. The decals are from Syhart and fitted and performed beautifully. 20221020_092815 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092806 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092752 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092736 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092725 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092719 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092711 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20221020_092658 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  6. A B-2 is not quite next but is coming soon.
  7. Thanks for the kind words folks. Much appreciated. Here's a couple of photos of the YB-35 and the YB-49 that I built a year or two ago. 20220930_114352 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20220930_114250 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. Latest effort. The Italeri boxing of the Northrop YB-35. I've previously built the YB-49 so I knew what to expect. Overall the kit is OK and the decals are excellent. Finished in Vallejo steel and gunmetal. 20220927_085338 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20220927_085353 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20220927_085414 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20220927_085419 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20220927_085425(1) by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  9. My first build of the year... This is Revell's 1/32 Bell X-1. Fairly decent and simple build.

  10. Further to a previous comment on the 595 Sqn Mk.XII., I have this image of MB845 at Aberporth. Note the cut-off cannon and late-war roundels on the wing upper surface. Spitfire XII MB845 7B - Z 595 Sqn Aberporth_3 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  11. My output this year. A few breaks for various reasons.

  12. Not my comfort zone at all - I'm normally found in the aircraft zone. For a while I'd wanted to build a Cutty Sark model and I started the Airfix kit a few months ago but parts issues and poor fit meant that I eventually gave up on it. Undeterred I got hold of the Academy kit, which is a much better kit with no real issues. I have no idea on the accuracy of the kit or my efforts at it but I'm reasonably pleased the way that it's turned out. Anyway, here it is. z20211205_202610 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20211205_202620 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  13. Thanks for the kind comments folks. Much appreciated. Check the parts. I had a couple missing and two left tailplane top surfaces. The fuselage was badly warped at the nose and needed a modicum of persuasion to get the halves togtether. Getting the wings to fit to the assembled fuselage is challenging at best and a bit of material needed removing from the landing gear bay to get it all to fit. Apart from that it goes together surprisingly well.
  14. One that's been in the stash for a few years. The Airfix 1/24 Hurricane is quite an old kit but actually isn't too bad. The fit is pretty decent with the exceptions being the getting the fuselage halves together and getting the wings to fit. Nothing major then... I added a Yahu photetched instrument panel and an HGW Sutton harness. The model is finished in Hataka/ Vallejo Acrylics dark earth, dark green and sky and using Topnotch camouflage masks which worked very well. The aircraft is in the markings of P3576 GN-A as flown by Flight Lieutenant James Brindley Nicolson VC, RAF No.249 Squadron, Boscombe Down, 16th August 1940. The markings were applied using Topnotchmasks and sprayed on. It was a new technique for me and I think it worked out OK. Anyway, here it is, xx20211119_202409 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202404 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202348 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202339 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202328 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202317 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr xx20211119_202510 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  15. The decals are great. The stripes fit perfectly. They do tend to stick where they are put so careful positioning is recommended. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
