  1. The puma just flew past again and I got better pictures, expect them in ~30 mins
  2. A Puma flew over my town a few times yesterday, I have pictures but they're pretty bad
  3. Thanks for the reply, what a coincidence, I have one in my stash I hope my Bucc' will go as well as yours.
  4. Great work! Could I perhaps know what aftermarket you used for the ordnance in the bomb bay? Thanks in advance.
  5. Things aren't looking good for the poor thing I hope this doesn't end with her at a scrapyard, we need to try to preserve everything we can, I might try to contact my local aerospace museum (Morayvia), maybe they'll buy it, in the mean time, hope someone else can get her a home.
  6. I won't quote it because it's a long message, but, I'm definitely saving those seat images that you posted earlier (ShortCummins), those are some excellent references! I have to make scratchbuild seatbelts for my 1:72. This'll be interesting...
  7. Here they are, as promised! She's in a bit of a poor condition but I hope they help. Here's a full picture of ZF583 just for the fun of it. I think a bird lives in her, which is... Interesting? I took the pictures at Solway Aviation Museum
  8. Amazing work so far! I have a few images of the wheel well if you need them, from the EE Lightning F.53 ZF583, they're not perfect but could be of use.
  9. Oh no! I didn't even notice! Well, guess it's scratchbuild time...
  10. 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
  11. I hadn't seen it, thank you for sharing it though! I'll definitely look into it.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. great job! the tooling on that spit looks fantastic. Were the seatbelts aftermarket? If they were mind sharing the brand?
  15. 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
