  1. Thanks Roger and a Happy New Year to you too.
  2. In 2020 I built more than I bought so I guess a net reduction. A fairly varied selection with my usual flitting between types and scales. Anyway here they are. Heller 1/48 Rafale A Hasegawa 1/48 F-104G Hasegawa 1/48 F-104A Mach 2 1/72 B-45A Tornado Trumpeter 1/48 F-84F Thunderstreak Airfix 1/48 Sea Harrier Heller 1/48 Mirage IIIC Aurora 1/48 DH-10 Academy 1/48 Hunter F.6 Airfix 1/48 Buccaneer S.2B Hasegawa 1/48 A-4F Skyhawk Kitty Hawk 1/48 F9F-8 Cugar 1/48 F1
  3. I remember the Esci kit. I think I built it as a Canadian one. Easiest paint job I suppose. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Very much appreciated. Now onto the Kinetic kit.
  4. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Very much appreciated, Now should I add a Rafale C or M?
  5. Quite an old kit and not particularly easy either. Fit was tricky in places and the decals were a bit of a nightmare. Still, here it is. z20201223_211724 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211736 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211744 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211755 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211813 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211821 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  6. A model I've wanted to build for ages. Hasegawa's F-104G finished with Caracal decals as NASA N826NA. Lovely kit to build and decals were excellent too. Note to self, leave the wings off until after decalling. z20201223_211707 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211704 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211655 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211646 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211636 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201223_211625 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  7. Here's your picture of that very model. Elliot Vac-form was it 430 North American RB-45C Tornado -5856 Elliot VAC 72 02 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. Cheers folks The finish was Vallejo Aluminium mostly with patches of Vallejo Steel.
  9. My latest effort. The kit itself is very good but the decals were a bit tired and reluctant to leave their backing paper so I had to source another set from ebay. The markings are for a Pakistan AF F-104A from the Iliad Design sheet. Nice decals and went on very well. z20201215_110228 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201215_110219 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201215_110202 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201215_110150 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201215_110141 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  10. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
  11. This was a bit of a challenge and it hasn't turned out great but frankly better than expected. Interesting aeroplane though. It used more filler than glue in places and required a lot of weight to keep it in its wheels. Sprayed in Vallejo acrylics and using a Caracal decal sheet, here it is. z20201205_164755 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201205_164806 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201205_164814 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201205_164826 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  12. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appeciated. The kit was pretty straightfowrd to build no problems at all. Accuracy-wise, I have no idea. Here's bonus photo of my almost complete Thunderbids in 1/48 (minus an F-105) 20201120_150619 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  13. Completing my Thunderbirds collection in 1/48, here is the Hobbyboss F-84F Thunderstreak. Not bad at all, typical of modern kits. Finished with the Warbirds decal sheet which was not without a few bits cracking and failing to adhere well. The decal sheet was designed for the Kinetic kit which meant the fit wasn't perfect in places. Anyway, here it is. z20201117_201044 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201117_201025 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201117_201016 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201117_201004 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  14. I bought this old kit at Telford last year during a fit of nostalgia. I had built it many years ago as a IIIC and my intention was to build it as a two seater. However I found the fuselage was so badly warped in so many directions I could not get it finished. I ended up taking my very old build and refurbishing using parts from the "newer" kit. Anyway, here it is, finished in Vallejo Aluminium and Faded PRU Blue on the top. Decals from various sources. z20201116_194332 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201116_194342 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201116_194346 by Derek N.Ferg
  15. An attempt at a very old kit. Typical of old Airfix a bit clunky in parts and there is something odd about shape of the nose. Finished in Hataka acrylics with decals from Model Alliance in the markings of XZ451 of 700A NAS. z20201116_194536 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201116_194517 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201116_194508 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20201116_194502 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
