  1. Couple of hours free this afternoon after the rugby, so managed to get the wings and tailpanes fitted and held in hopefully the right place Looks like I've got plenty of filling to do all round this kit as the fits are awful Going to make a concerted effort to finish this with my limited time available at the minute, as it's the only one being built. The other build of the vampire will probably fall by the wayside though as there are another 2 being built and I've totally lost my mojo with it as it's so small I'm struggling with it due to my aging eyes and sausage fingers. I knew there was a reason I didn't build in 72nd scale any more Ian
  2. Hi Pat Still not touched anything for a few weeks with one thing and another, just don't seem to have any spare time at all lately, don't know where it all seems to have gone Must try and knock the dust off them and get back in the saddle so to speak Ian

  4. Redstaff,

     

    Did you ever find the Tamiya 1/12 Renault RE20?  I ask because I too purchased this model 25+ years ago and never built (met a girl, got married, had a kid who's now 23).  Apparently I kept the model through several moves, found it about a year and a half ago, and just completed.  I'll post some pics. 

     

    Tires were ok.  They had shrunk but only just a bit.  Thankfully no cracking.  Decals were toast and had to be replaced.  Otherwise it was good to go!

     

    Yours in lost things,

    JCH

      Hi JCH

       

      Had a look in my parents loft and in our loft and no sign unfortunately.

      I probably swapped it or sold it in my youth, but can't remember

       

      May get another one day

       

      Regards

      Ian

  5. Hi Pat Not touched anything for over 2 weeks now with one thing and another, going to try and get back on track this week again Ian

  7. Hi @exdraken, it was the only solution I could come up with I got mine from Hannants, but it looks like they are awaiting stock at the present https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/QMTR48009 You get a lot of resin for your money though and the quality is superb Looking forward to getting back into modelling after a family bereavement, then ending up with a stomach virus myself, but all ok now Ian
  8. Hi @825, of course you should, I was looking out for one of those to build, but with sods law one never materialised so I went down different paths Just wish someone would build a decent 48th scale one Ian
  9. Many thanks @Col. for another superb GB with plenty of banter and tips along the way It was nice as well that someone else liked my build by voting for me, hopefully that means my skills are improving and not just a sympathy vote Roll on the '90s build for another fun filled GB Ian
  10. Primed it and it looks like the wing roots need a little more fettling, it was difficult to see properly in the dark blue bare plastic, but it shows up a lot better in the grey. I've also added one of the wings to the intruder that's being made in the background, the size comparison is huge between the 2 planes Ian
  11. Well, this is the little piece of plastic I lost from the T5 This is my solution around the problem, not a cheap one, but at least I'll get around to adding another aircraft to my growing collection of 56 squadron Firebirds, and I get to go to town on the cockpit of the T4 with this lovely resin set
  12. Decision made now the resin cockpit set has arrived from Hannants It is one of the best looking resin cockpits I've ever seen, so this is going to go with the T4 when it arrives and the Sword plastic one can go here on the T5 as I think it wouldn't do it justice without all of the fancy cockpit installed, so definitely not going to make the deadline now as the T4 is supposed to arrive tomorrow according to the tracking Ian
  13. Hi Dennis The USMC took delivery of their first AV8 harriers in '71 Ian
  14. Pics as promised showing how much tape was needed for the banana fuselage halves
  15. Pic finally uploaded with all the filler Awaiting a final sand and primer maybe tomorrow
