  1. Here are some reviews when the kit came out back in the late 90s... Review 1 Review 2 Review 3 For me the nose is one of the big issue, I am thinking about using a Heller 707 nose/cockpit to replace it.
  2. I built the Viscount a few years ago, It went together OK, you just need to spend a bit more time cleaning up parts and dry fitting.
  3. If I could get my airbrushed models to look that good I would be very happy. They all look great
  4. Iam finally back to finishing this one up. I have had some time to refine some details, repairing broken antennas and adding some new ones. The nose chin sensor was also removed and repositioned after some more reshaping. I still need to fair it in.
  5. One of the GB Hosts has to set up the poll and then it will be set to stay open for a set period when you can vote.
  6. Well this one is stalled and with other higher priority builds to get done in the next couple of weeks I won't be getting back to it anytime soon.
  7. Phew! I thought I had issues with my browser as all I could see were 0% for each GB and no way of adding my vote. Me too Matt, the way the post was written I thought I was missing something, and I was, I missed reading the rest of the first line.
  8. I have plenty of Star Wars and Trek kits I have been meaning to find a reason to start, count me in
  9. Nice to see you back at it Martin, which reminds me, I should get back to my build!
  10. Looks great, it been a nice journey following along
  11. I have done this conversion twice, the first time I pretty much did the above. The second time I just glued the vertical stab straight to the cut out area with superglue. There was enough plastic for the glue to take hold of (it is still OK BTW)
  12. Thanks Jeff, It is coming along nicely, most of the major mods are done, just some tidying up and the antenna farm can go on. As for the number of builds, I loose interest quickly or am distracted easily The Il-28 is finished now and the other Gulfstream and the P-3 and progressing slowly. I managed to add some putty to the nacelle generator humps and rear fuselage. And first pass with sanding
  13. I managed to eventually get the windscreen transparency fitted. I had no end of issues fairing the part in without getting crap inside while sanding. After the third attempt it is on and the masks applied I also started on the generator bulges on the engine nacelles and finally started to add the ribs/cable ducts from the rear fuselage up to the rear radome assembly
  14. I see the Panzer is going well Steve, did you get any more done on this one?
  15. Impressive scratch building T-D, how did you go about making these?
  16. Thanks Julian, this is P-3 No. 9 for me, with this and another still two in work. Well actually, No. 11 if you count the kit I butchered trying to convert to an Electra (bad resin in the conversion set) quite a few years ago.
