  1. Hello everyone, I recently picked up the lovely 1/48 Dora Wings Vega Gull kit. I was fascinated by the image posted by Dave Fleming in the Rumourmonger forum. What a stunning aircraft! I want to appeal for any information people may have about the airframe. This colour scheme, apparently repainted in late 1942 at Alexandria, looks like a Coastal Command type scheme to me - Extra Dark Sea Grey/Dark Slate Grey upper with white underside. At some point in 1942 the aircraft wore a different scheme... https://emea01.safeli
  2. Looking forward to watching this progress
  3. Stunning job. Just received this myself and hope it looks as good as yours
  4. I'm going to find a way to justify this
  5. Lovely work this is giving me inspiration for my own seahawk
  6. I'll put a good word in for commission building. I have fun myself - because I only pick subjects I want to make. This has allowed me to enjoy many 1/32 models I otherwise could not justify. However I have lovely customers and am financially secure - my builds are just a little extra in the pocket to finance my stash. I also sell models on eBay but I find this can take time and the models may not sell for as much as you could make on commission. eBay audiences seem to want to pay for the typical Battle of Britain subjects but the market is much smaller for anything more
  7. The 'box art' we have been shown may not even be final. MJR Hobbies had this listed on Facebook for Q4 2021 and the artwork quality does not seem to par with other ICM releases so I would hardly be surprised if it is an early draft for the catalogue... I am not worried yet!
  8. Watching with great interest.. I have the WellsProps conversion kit stashed and will be using the Haraya resin engine to convert the Roden DH9 kit. Your modelling so far looks fantastic. What is your plan for the wings? New prints or working with the Roden kit and widening them? If you need the aeroplane monthly plans give me a shout.
