    Revell P8 Poseidon

    You are further along with yours than I am with mine Stu. Nice to see it progressing.

    Martin Mariner, Mach 2

    Nice work J-W, coming along very nicely
  3. Well Ian, the only criticism I have is that you build a lot better models than me! It looks like another wonderful piece of work from your workbench!

    1/72 Hasegawa F-110A Spectre -- Uphill All The Way...

    I have a Hasegawa F-4E in Edwards Test markings in this scale, so I will tag along as well to see if I can pick up a few more assembly pointers from you Ed.

    Concorde... this time by Heller in 1/125

    Nice work with the build Matthew. I have used Draw Deals on a few of my builds and you will find they are thin and lay down well. Just take your time with them and you will have a great result. I just started watching a 4 part special on Concorde (that the missus noticed on the box and started recording) and seeing it flying around in all her glamour is giving me the inkling to start my 1/72 kit.

    B-17E 'Suzie Q', 19th Bombardment Group, PTO

    Well, I did that last night and the use of masking fluid was not the best idea. A lot of painful clean up required. I also flat coated it and I think I added too much. I will have to mist some gloss over it. The good news is the Frog decals performed flawlessly.

    Hello Down under !! Some tips for my stepson ??

    In Sydney, there is also the Harbour Bridge climb, the Opera House, the Rocks (lots of pubs!), these are all within a 2km of each other, harbour cruise, the beaches either at Bondi (south side of the harbour) or the northern beaches around Manly (get there by ferry).

    Final touches in progress, Decals to go on and masking to come off I just hope the decals play the game or I will have to rely on the spares box for an anonymous aircraft
  9. That is unfortunate. I think I will be masking and spraying mine when the time comes. You could contact Italeri and show the issues, they won't fix the decal but may send a send out to you for extra parts.

    LS 1/144 Lockheed P-3C Orion

    Looks OK to me, a few touchups will hide the seepage. Nice to see progress.

    The Boeing B-17 STGB Chat

    Thanks to Enzo and V-P for sorting out an extension, I figure I should finish by the original date but the padding is welcomed and will help in case of any disasters in the finals stages of my build.

    1:48 Macchi MB-326 in RAAF colours

    I can't see any issues with it Simon, looks great from here!

    1/350 Uss Missouri 1991 (Tamiya+Pontos+Infini)

    I was on the USS Missouri about 3 weeks ago and all I can say is that it looks like you have more detail than on the ship itself these days! Ihana työ! I have this kit to finish one day and I hope it looks half as good as your when finished.

    1/144 Airbus a340-600 conversion

    Looks lovely Phil, I hope I can get mine to look as good when I get around to it.
