  1. Another long-term stash lurker and a surprisingly easy kit to make. No cockpit, no decals, all parts painted before assembly and then stick together. Rigged with elastic thread. Such an important aircraft is poorly served by the modelling world. Only this kit and the expensive Hasegawa 1/16 scale kit seem to be around. Surely a modern 1/32 or 1/24 scale kit is long overdue?

  2. My latest effort. Not a particularly easy build with one two "challenging" areas. The landing gear bays being one of them. Finished in Vallejo light and dark ghost gray with decals from Mil-Spec  depicting the CAG aircraft from VF-11 USS Carl Vinson.

  3. I built the very old Revell kit in Don Gentile's Shangri-La P-51B many years ago so I wanted to have another go. This time based on the more modern Trumpeter kit. All in all a very good kit. I left the engine out which meant being a bit innovative with where to attach the exhausts. The model is finished in Hataka Neutral Gray and Olive Drab.The decals come from Kits-World.

  4. A kit I bought a few years ago at Telford. Very nice kit, with lots of detail with excellent fit throughout. Finished in Hataka Night Black with the kit decals.

  5. This is the Revell 1/48 Bf-110G-4 Nice kit overall with good detail. The landing gear was bit fiddly but that was the only bit I struggled with. Finished in Hataka RLM75 over 76.

  6. A fairly quick build of a simple kit. It has pretty decent fit for a kit of its age. The only real issue was getting enough weight in the nose(?)
    Astonishing to think this aircraft first flew in 1947 and has almost exactly the same wingspan as the B-2.

  7. A fairly recent kit and an excellent one at that. The fit is nothing short of astonishing. The engine cowls are held in place by little magnets and can be altered as in the photos. Finished with the kit decals with Hataka acrylics, RLM74, 75 and 76.

  8. I've been looking forward tobuilding this one and it didn't disappoint. Excellent fit and some clever engineering. The cockpit sits in a white metal section that acts as a nose weight. Finished in Hataka acrylics RLM 75 over RLM 76. I reverse masked the upper surface by painting the dark colour first then placing little blobs of blu-tak then spraying the light colour.

  9. Another long term stash resident. Part of Dragon's Ju-88 series. Fairly decent kit with some awkward bits and pieces. Decals disintegrated on contact with water which wasn't helpful. Finished with Xtracrylix RLM76 and RLM74.

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

  11. 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.
