  1. Oh no! I didn't even notice! Well, guess it's scratchbuild time...
  2. It was my birthday a few months ago and I decided to treat myself With this BIG BOI https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b0/0d/6b/b00d6b8dd53ee1a7390ae6ab64e35ed4.jpg I was pleasantly surprised to see how neat the box was https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e7/26/af/e726afa47a6eb758b7a2b104bf41a202.jpg Everything was neatly packaged and the larger parts were in the small box which has it's own boxart which was a nice surprise. I started the tail end first, and man, this thing is massive! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d9/b6/38/d9b638f3e5c457b17950c0f7d2e5283e.jpg Here it is in my hand, I'm a small person though, mind you: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/09/90/1e/09901e322e60a36689f3d202d4a5db0b.jpg I am very happy with the amount of interior details (although it got a bit worse as I got to the front end) https://i.pinimg.com/originals/14/bb/04/14bb04ddb6fcad65e392586a155a6729.jpg Wings added the next day, and, well uh, this is the biggest kit I've made (bigger than the 1:72 victor!) https://i.pinimg.com/originals/13/19/4b/13194bcb89e857ba8bd51a8375b0841c.jpg Here is the front end dry fitted, showing it's true size, the fit is great by the way! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/bd/56/7f/bd567f8d1739a3744012cd85ffc411f4.jpg Alright, the cockpit, the disappointing part of the build so far. The ejection seats are great! 11 pieces per seat! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ce/0c/bd/ce0cbdf853868a28383c8201aecb4a14.jpg The cockpit itself though, very disappointing, looks like mostly guesswork, there are buttons behind where the seats are meant to go and random details. https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/696932111071969199/ https://i.pinimg.com/originals/09/8e/3b/098e3b7859b47f8258833cb6a2a6fc65.jpg What do you guys think so far? Also, here's your tag @Adam Poultney Aand the images didn't work, I'll fix it in an hour, I'm busy right now
  3. I hadn't seen it, thank you for sharing it though! I'll definitely look into it.
  4. So I will be building the Bucc' by Airfix once I finish my Victor. Was slightly disappointed to find that while the Bucc' does come with an open bomb bay position it does not give any ordnance to go with it. Would this be the correct bomb to buy/use on the model? I am also unsure about how I will attach the ordnance to said bomb bay. could anyone supply good pictures of the bomb bay loaded with 1000lb freefall bombs. Thanks in advance.
  5. Holy cow, I've missed out on a lot, must've forgotten to follow my own post somehow, I'll try to catch up, sorry about that.
  6. great job! the tooling on that spit looks fantastic. Were the seatbelts aftermarket? If they were mind sharing the brand?
  7. Approximately a year ago, I started the Airfix vulcan, a notoriously bad kit, now I have decided to continue making it and fix some mistakes. Here's some of my progress. Sanding down old and rough paint One wing fully painted. someone special is in this picture
  8. Great work! shame about the crack though, also, sorry to bug you but there's a tiny gap at the point the canopy meets the fuselage on the last picture build looks great though, even though it's basically done, definitely following it.
  9. Thank you! Yeah the people who work there are really nice, you can tell they care about what they do, you can also sign up for volunteer work which I would do if I lived closer to there
  10. If you have any questions or picture requests please feel free to ask
  11. Last year I went to Solway Aviation Museum in the Lake District. It has many great aircraft such as a Canberra, Vulcan B.2 XJ823, Lightning and many more. Hope you'll enjoy them friends. @Adam Poultneyhere's your tag. Jet provost Reg. No. XS209 EE Lightning Reg. No. ZF583 Phantom FGR.2 Reg. No. XV406 in what seemed to be a new paint job Percival Sea Prince Reg. No. WP314 Gloster Meteor NF.14 Reg. No. WS382 Hawker Hunter F.51 Reg. No. E425 (under restoration right now) De Havilland Vampire T.11 Reg. No. WZ515 And now, for what you've all been waiting for! Avro Vulcan B.2 Reg. No. XJ823 She's a beaut' ain't she. Now, the cabin. Here is the cockpit in all it's glory! Unfortunately I couldn't sit in the pilot/copilot seats as sadly there has been a history of idiots stealing and vandalising. However the navigator/bombardier area was very nice as well, surprisingly comfy Now, moving onto the Canberra T.4, Reg. No. WE188 I was allowed to get in her cockpit as well, quite interesting and a lot more spacious than I expected, although would be quite uncomfortable with 3 seats in there. Last picture, but an interesting one. The worlds last original Sikorsky-built S.55 Whirlwind, unfortunately, she's in quite a bad state right now. Hope you found this interesting.
  12. Don't really know how to start the thread, got lucky and got this kit for Christmas. I've finished the cockpit and I'm really quite proud, interested in what your opinions will be. @Adam Poultney, here's your tag. Rear console Martin baker Mk.3 seats finished Cockpit finished
  13. Thanks for the response! It hurts to hear about the bulkhead. One of a modellers worst nightmares are spilt glue or paint. Thanks! Ill keep the engines in mind
  14. I've been thinking of saving up for the Platinum edition (the one with PE) Revell 1:48 B-1B Lancer, I just want to ask if its any good. There isn't much content on the platinum edition and I want to ask if anyone has built it before, was it a good kit? were there any faults or anything with it? Or can anyone recommend any good videos about the kit? Thanks in advance!
  15. Thanks! I have already painted the cockpit but I'll keep it in mind if I ever make another one!
