  1. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Much appreciated.
  2. I think we probably were. My dad took this of me climbing in that day. Looks a bit dreich though. 3-67-476 DHC-1 Chipmunk T10 WZ875 12 AEF, RAF Turnhouse, July 1977 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  3. Thanks for the kind comments folks. For rigging I used elastic thread and the tiniest blob of superglue. Airfix provide a very useful series of diagrams showing the rigging set up. I also partially rigged it before attempting to put the top wing in place.
  4. The first aircraft operated by the Blue Angels and only for a very few shows. Eduard's Hellcat is a lovely kit and goes together very well. Finished in Hataka acrylics and once again excellent Draw decal markings in gold. 20210926_210131 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210137 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210144 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210152 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr What surprised me was how much bigger the Hellcat was compared to the Bearcat. I always thought it was the other way round. 20210926_210237 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  5. In an effort to complete my Blue Angels collection, here is the Bearcat in 1/48 scale from Hobbyboss. Nice simple kit with excellent fit all round. Finished in Vallejo FS15050 with superb Draw Decals markings. 20210926_210041 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210048 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210054 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210106 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  6. The newish Airfix Tiger Moth in 1/48 scale. Another nice little kit with no real problems in build. Built and finished out of the box. As always self-inflicted build issues around the top wing which I left off unitl near the end, after applying decals and partial rigging. Matching the red was a challenge as the red I used was slightly different to the kit decals, which I have to say were excellent. 20210927_162253 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210927_162300 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210927_162306 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210927_162309 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  7. This is the new Airfix Chipmunk in 1/48 scale. Nice little kit but the cockpit canopy gave me a bit of grief. It comes in three pieces with a little jig to ensure the right angles. The wings also needed a bit of bracing to stop a distinct droop on the outer sections. It's finished with Hataka acrylics and an Xtradecal sheet slightly modified to represent WZ875, the first Chipmunk I flew in at RAF Turnhouse in 1976. 20210926_210011 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210017 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210024 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20210926_210030 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr

  9. It's been a while but after a few months of a break from modelling, I thought I'd build this one. Special Hobby Bristol M-1C in 1/32 scale, which is about the perfect scale for aeroplanes of this size. The kit goes together very well and I hand painted it in Humbrol acrylics 98 Chocolate and 41 Ivory. I thought the Humbrol colour was a reasonable stab at a PC-12 finish. I used Alleycat decals to finish the model as a (slightly fictitious) example from 72Sqn. RAF in Mesopotamia in 1918. z20210831_201040 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20210831_201103 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20210831_201110 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20210831_201132 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20210831_201156 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20210831_201204 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  10. Three Kfirs together From the left, Kinetic, AMK and Esci, built in around 1980. aa20210316_230918 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  11. I thought it might be of interest to see the two Rafales together, A and M. aa20210316_230733 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210316_230813 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr

  14. Another Dassault delta. This time Revell's take on the Rafale M. Pretty decent kit overall. Finished with excellent Syhart decals as the kit decals were a bit old. aa20210307_165336 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165325 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165321 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165315 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165247 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165244 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr a20210307_165344 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
