  1. Hi Markus. Thanks for that reminder! I do have the article and I have been using it as a reference during the build. I have painted the seats but I've found that thinning the side walls and removing the trim wheels from the side and centre consoles allow the seats to fit. I'll have to repaint the side walls but that won't be a problem. Cheers, Mick
  2. Thanks Chris. It's out of my area of interest so I'm watching with interest too. Thanks Zac. There is an option for a camo FAC bird on the decal sheet plus an alternate instrument panel for it.
  3. Hi all. I've gone and done the unthinkable by doing a few commission builds for a work colleague. There are a lot of first (and lasts) with this build. I'll try to explain that in a bit. The kit has already been removed on numerous sites so I'll keep the summary brief. The kit is by Special Hobby that was released in association with Red Roo banner in 2016. Included are vacform canopies, photoetch details, white metal gear and a selection of five schemes./ Indications from other builds are the RAAF roundels are partly transparent. I might end up masking and
  4. G’day folks. An Ag Cat you say? Yep, an Ag Cat. Last year (2019) Jamo released this limited run kit to the market. It’s not something that I would gravitate to as I prefer military types. A colleague at work and fellow modeller asked me to build a model for him as a commission. In his sign off he mentioned that he’d been looking for one of these kits as he has fond childhood memories of it. As a young fella his parents' house backed onto the Eagle Farm airport here in Brisbane well before the new Brisbane airport was ever built. Due to its proximity to Moret
  5. Thanks @F-32 I'm pretty happy with this one @GRK. I think I'll come back to it to add a little bit more.
  6. I can certainly see you enjoy the painting and weathering stage. Great to see a late war vessel too.
  7. That looks like one beast of a ship. The rigging looks fantastic as does the rest of it and the simple presentation is great. Mick
  8. Wow. SO much work to get up to the deck before the fiddly stuff starts. Keep going. Mick
  9. Thanks Shaun, it's kind of you to say that. If you ever in Brissie, stop by and we can talk shop and other stuff! Mick
  10. Thanks @swralph! Cheers @jackroadkill. If it's the images that referring to about the filter, there's no filter applied. Just stratight off the phone. Cheers @phildagreek Thanks @supersonic Cheers @Farmerboy Thanks @PhantomLover Thanks @Tbolt Thanks @wellsprop
  11. Hi all. I've just finished up the very nice 1/48th Eduard Tempest. This is the series two boxing that corrected the short comings of the main gear. I've added some extra resin into it by way of the spinner, exhausts, controls surfaces (sans rudder) and wheels; all from Barracuda. The main gear legs and doors are from the Eduard Brassin set and the kit etch was used in the cockpit. I opted for the raised plastic IP and decals as the etch item was a far 2D; perhaps okay in 72nd scale kit but not in a 48th scale kit. The radiator flap has been cut out and fabricated from a thinner mat
