  1. Three Kfirs together From the left, Kinetic, AMK and Esci, built in around 1980. aa20210316_230918 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  2. 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
  3. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Much appreciated.

  5. 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
  6. The latest addition to my Mirage family. This is the AMK Kfir C2. A lovely kit with excellent detail and fit. Finished in Vallejo acrylics, Gunship grey, dark gull grey and light compass grey in the markings of ATAC aircraft N401AX. aa20210307_165453 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165442 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165438 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165432 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165423 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165415 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210307_165409 by Derek N.
  7. Thanks folks. Something a bit smaller next...
  8. A kit I've wanted to build for years and I managed to find one reasonably priced on Ebay. Built with a few extras from Eduard; masks, interior etc. and decals from Xtradecal. An excellent kit despite its vintage with mostly great fit. Finished as EE136 "WS-R" Spirit of Russia of 9Sqn RAF with Hataka red range range acrylics. Now to find somewhere to put it... aa20210212_104413 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210212_104409 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210212_104353 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20210212_104332 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr aa20
  9. Thanks for the comments folks. Yes, kit decals. Pretty good they are too.
  10. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Much appreciated
  11. Another Dassault delta, this time Heller's Mirage IVP. No doubt one of the best looking aeroplanes of its era, it's quite a straight forward kit and gows together quite easily. It's finished the markings of L'Armee de L'Air unit 1/91 "Gascogne" based at Mont-de-Marsan in 1995. I used the RAF Dark Sea Grey and Dark Green from Hataka's red range. The decals weren't great, due to age I suspect. Anyway, here it is.
  12. My latest in a series of Dassault deltas. This is Kinetic's Mirage IIIE. Not the easiest kit I've built. By trying to make as many versions available as possible, the kit's engineering is quite complicated, especially in the fuselage/nose/air intake area. Anyway, with some brute force, lots of glue, some filler and a smattering of profanities, it went together. Finished as a Mirage IIIEE of ALA 11 of the Ejercito del Aire, I used Hataka RAF Ocean Grey and RLM 80 Dark green with Vallejo Aluminium undersides.
  13. Thanks Roger and a Happy New Year to you too.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. Thanks for taking the time to comment folks. Very much appreciated, Now should I add a Rafale C or M?
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Cheers folks The finish was Vallejo Aluminium mostly with patches of Vallejo Steel.
  21. 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
  22. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
