  1. Look forward to seeing the outcome of this - I've been after one for years!
  2. I know this thread is dedicated for the above, but has anyone bought these kits, if so how have you found them? Happy to be PM'd if it keeps the thread clean.
  3. Thanks all for the positive feedback. Onto the next project!
  4. Hi all, First up, along with many people, I managed to pick up the new Airfix Beaufort early on through Jadlam on preorder. A brilliant kit from Airfix with some superb engineering. Kit is from the box with the exception of Eduard cockpit masks and replacement resin wheels to add a little extra detail. Build went together very well and especially pleased that the included schemes represented examples from St Eval, Cornwall - a location not far from me. Not my best build, I used a new brand of Gloss Varnish for me and ended up going on too thick, resulting in
  5. Absolutely brilliant, where did you come by rh decals for the Twin Squirrel?
  6. Italeri have now posted their full 2021/22 catalogue on their social media account including the remainder of the range... https://issuu.com/italeri/docs/catalogo_2021_22_ott01?fr=sMzEwYTc4Mjg4MQ
  7. That's quite a small catalogue compared to previous years. I see the HH-101 Ceaser has finally been removed I was hoping for a reissue of either the 1/35 or 1/72 DUKW.
  8. Thanks for the comments. I have both Vallejo Model Air Sky Type S and AMMO Mig Sky Type S - both colours looked identical to me when sprayed, but the Vallejo gave a smoother finish. I can't really comment on the colour accuracy, it looks fairly close to me, especially when weathered.
  9. Evening all, Just completed the fine Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufighter TF.10, a brilliant mojo build. Finished out of the box using Vallejo Sky Type S for the underside and Tamiya Dark Sea Grey for the top. Weathered with oils and Vallejo Model Washes. I would usually use a dark dirt clay wash, but decided to try and move away from that on this build using a similarly coloured wash to give a subtle effect to the recessed detail, to complement the base colour. Few small details still to add but very happy with the result. Displayed alongside the Airfix Bomber R
  10. Italeri have been busy updating their 2020 catalogue (not 2021...) additions have labelled as just "New" in the top right corner of each photo and can be found here. https://issuu.com/italeri/docs/catalogue_italeri_2019_2020?fr=sNDVhMTc4Mjg4MQ I haven't listed them all, but having looked at the catalogue in recently months the following have been added recently... 1/9; 7406 Zundapp KS 750 with sidecar 1/72; 1371 HH-101 Caesar (been promised for years) 1388 SM.81 Pipistrello 1399 F-111 Ardvark 1412 SM.79 Spar
  11. Thanks definitely an option, I'll look into what's available. Many thanks for all the kind comments, much appreciated.
  12. Afternoon all, My latest build, and probably last for 2020, is the Airfix 1/72 Vickers Wellington GR MKIII boxing in Coastal Command colours. Representing an airframe based at RAF Chivenor... Airfix' own instructions state there is some ambiguity in the actual scheme carried, so whilst I'm sure the aerials and deice boots on the front of the wings should be a different colour, I am leaving them as is. Built entirely out of the box, using Tamiya acrylics - I am not and never am happy with how the white has laid down and no combination of thinner, ratio, air pressures etc
  13. Was this variant used during WWII as I note the included liveries are for the late 40's?
  14. Just seen that. Has anyone built a Dream Model kit before? They look of a good quality according to images on their Facebook page and stocked by Hannants.
