  2. Thanks for taking the the time to comment. Much appreciated.
  3. A nice kit overall. The fit between the clear cockpit parts and the rest of the fuselage wasn't great and the decals were poor - due to age I suspect. Finished in a mixture of Xtracrylix and Hataka colours. 20200130_082514 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082459 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082451 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082439 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  4. 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. 20200130_082632 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082616 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082607 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20200130_082552 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  5. Quite a productive year, including many that have been lurking in the loft for years.

  6. 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. z20191219_133636 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133643 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133649 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133704 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  7. One I've wanted to build for ages. I got a Hasegawa FGR.2 version at Telford and courtesy of Xtradecal I was able to put together a model of one of the aircraft of my childhood. A few minor alterations were needed to make a FG.1 from the Hasegawa kit, some of which were in the box but some weren't, like the correct tailplanes. Anyway here it is, finished as XV571 "A" of 43 Sqn in the mid 1970s. z20191219_133530 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133523 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133513 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191219_133506 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr With the 111Sqn version I made a couple of years ago z20191219_133547 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. An attempt at the early issue of the Eduard Fw190A-8. Decent kit but with a few tricky fitting bits, not least the engine bay. Finished with a mixture of Hataka, Vallejo and Xtracrylix and the kit decals. z20191110_001544 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001527 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001518 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_001503 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  9. One that seems to have been in the stash for ages. Decent enough kit but with a few tricky metal etched bits and pieces. Finished in Hataka acrylics with Peddinghaus decals. z20191110_095320 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095314 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095308 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191110_095302 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  10. Yes I did. I modified them as best I could. I looked at using the original kit wings but the modifications were too much, They would have fitted better though.
  11. The newish kit from Airfix. It is a pretty good kit with decent fit all round.. It's finished in the markings of NH926/P 28 Sqn RAF Tengah 1947 from Xtradecal sheet 48130 and painted with Hataka Acrylics. z20191018_111604 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111545 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111537 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191018_111524 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  12. Eduard Profipack of their first incarnation of the Bf109G-6. I believe this kit has some inaccuracies but it looks fine to me. It's finished in RLM74, 75, 76 with Vallejo acrylics and the kit decals in the markings of Bartel's aircraft of JG27 in Greece in 1943. Nice well detailed kit, a little too detailed in places. Some parts are so tiny I could barely see them far less stick them anywhere. z20191005_155245 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155238 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155230 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155221 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  13. Latest effort Eduard 1/48 Fw190D-9, built out of the box. Finished in a mixture of Xtracrylix, Hataka and Vallejo paints. Nice kit although I struggled with the forward fuselage a bit with poor fit I think as a result of me changing my mind about dispalying the gun bays. z20191005_155336 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155322 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155315 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20191005_155307 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  14. Thanks for that. No real issues around the nose. The etched metal aerials needed a bit of care though. They are very fine. Indeed. I'm not a great fan of panel washes at the best of times.
  15. Firstly the Dragon Me262A-1a. Not the easiest kit with some poor fit in places. Lots of detail and some very small etched metal parts. Finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours in an RLM 76, 81 and 82 scheme with decals of Yellow 5 KG(J)6 from Xtradecal sheet 48-179. z20190908_202705 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202649 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202640 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202630 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr Secondly the Hasegawa/Dragon Me262B-1a. Essentially the same kit as the A-1a with some extra bits. Again finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours. Decals again from an Xtradecal sheet. z20190908_202908 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202858 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202846 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202832 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  16. Thanks for the comments folks. much appreciated. After a Blinder and a Backfire, I want to add a Bear and a Blackjack but space is becoming an issue......
  17. Yet another long term stash resident gets built. This is the old Esci Tu-22. I have no idea on its accuracy but it builds quite nicely and needs only a small amount of filler. One build note. Leave the engines off until after it's painted.... It's finished using Iraqi decals from the Revell version of the kit. The colours were a bit of a mystery so I've gone for a green scheme that appeared in a few photos. z20190814_195950 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195924 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195913 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190814_195903 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  18. Go for it. It isn't too bad. The only issue is its sheer size.
  19. I've built a Mk.XII using the Grey Matter conversion and a PR.XIX, using the Warbird conversion, both using the Hasegawa Mk.V or Mk.VI kit. In both cases I also bought a set of Grey Matter "C" wings, modified a bit for the PR.XIX. A better base for the PR.XIX would be the Revell Mk.IX. I've built the Pacific Coast Mk.XIV as well and found it a reasonably easy build - if you can find one.
  20. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated. Blinder next...
  21. This one has been around for a while and I can't comment on its accuracy but it goes together quite well with decent fit all round. Not a lot of detail for its size and it is big. Sprayed with Vallejo undersides and medium sea grey on top. 20190731_205755 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190731_205734 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190731_205713 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190731_205700 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190731_205647 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190731_205612 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  22. When this one was announced last year, it was one I had to build. I was involved in the development and testing of the U-125A in 1994 and having built this, I think I'll do another one in the primer paint and test markings. Anyway, the Sword kit is pretty decent with good fit and external detail. Internal detail is a bit fictitious but not much can be seen anyway. Colour wise, I had a stab at RAF sky with a touch of white for the undersides and Vallejo Sky Blue with added Medium Sea Grey for the top surfaces. It might still be little blue but it is difficult to get a decent match. The decals are a touch on the fragile side and tended to stick where they were put. z20190722_210210 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190722_210143 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190722_210126 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190722_210113 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  23. I think I might have had a failing elastic issue! You're right about the walkway. I completely missed that. You may be right. I checked each one and they both fitted in both positions . Tha part was tricky right enough. It sort of fits where it touches at the moment.
  24. Thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
  25. Another long-term stash lurker. A very enjoyable kit to build with nice fit. Sprayed in Xtracylix RAF Trainer Yellow. The markings are slightly fictitious. The serial is correct but I have no idea that airframe flew in those colours. The rigging was a bit of a faff but worked out quite well. 20190707_195230 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190707_195212 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190707_195203 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190707_195151 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr 20190707_195138 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
