  1. Outstanding work and result considering it's the Airfix kit. It looks very realistic and I love the dropped flaps. Nice weathering too. A prize winner for sure! Cheers Vinny
  2. Thanks for all the great comments guys! Really appreciate the great feedback and it's good to know I'm getting some things right @Kallisti: I actually referenced your build while I was doing mine. Very inspirational as you got a fantastic result. I love the added lights… I wish I had put lights in mine now. Cheers fellas! Vinny
  3. Model: Moebius Models Iron Man Mk. VI (0922) Scale: 1:8 Hey guys! Finished this earlier in the year but only now getting around to posting it. I enjoyed the build over all but the seams were a killer!! I'm happy with the result after all the pain though Any questions just fire away! Thanks for looking! Vinny
  4. Thanks guys! I really am grateful for all the positive comments. It really means a lot as it's great to know my work is appreciated by the talented modelers on here whose work has been inspirational to me. Thanks Ray! I painted the fan blades first, used a silver paint pen for the blade edges, then the ring part that holds them in white. This section (blades and ring) was then carefully masked off before installing into the engine housing. The two sides of the engines were mated together which left a seam line running through the middle of the intake. The seam was sanded smooth (using sandpaper rolled to a small tube and attached to the end of a paintbrush). Mr Surfacer was then applied to get rid of any imperfections. I then glued on the front section (the intake lip) of the engine. Then I was happy with any cleanup that needed to be done, I went ahead and primed the intake with Alclad primer. Then I applied Alclad Dark Aluminum. I masked off the Dark Aluminum in preparation for Humbrol Polished Aluminum (27002) which I applied at the later stages of the build after the white paint job was finished. Thanks! I tend to always use setting solutions and for this build I used my favoured Mr Mark Setter and Mr Mark Softer. The decals went on well but are pretty thick especially the light blue areas. If there were any really painful sections then I might have used Daco's strong solution. I used Xtracolor X262 RAL7021 Schwartzgrun. Thanks again! Cheers! Vinny
  5. Thanks for all the positive comments fellas! Very much appreciated and very motivational too Cheers! Vinny
  6. What a beauty! Very inspirational build John. I want to dig one out of the stash now!! Looking forward to seeing her on the display base you have planned. Sounds fab! Cheers! Vinny
  7. Love it!! That's one unique 747-8 you've got now. Great job Mike! Cheers! Vinny
  8. Kit: Revell (04261) Decals: Rib-Hobby Scale: 1:144 Hey guys, This is my latest addition to the shelf. It's the Revell (Zvezda) B.787-8 Dreamliner done up in the China Southern special scheme. Great kit, that went together really well. Decals are by Rib-Hobby. It was my first time using this manufacturer and they're very thick but good to work with. Happy Modelling! Vinny
  9. Kit & Decals: Hasegawa (LK102) Scale: 1:144 Hi fellas, Here's a model I finished recently of one of the YS-11T anti-submarine training aircraft of the 205th Kokutai TSQ J.M.S.D.F. stationed at Shimousa. The aircraft was used to hone the submarine finding skills of J.M.S.D.F. personnel. Thanks for looking! Vinny
  10. Excellent! I knew you'd be the man Ray! From what I heard, the second 757 flew to Norwich for painting with the third to follow soon. Hopefully these two will be in full Aer Lingus livery. The white scheme on the current 757 looks patchy and seems to have been rushed into service. I wonder if it will eventually be painted in the full scheme. It's a pity they didn't do one retro 757 with the old 80s green top. Now all we need is a nice injection 757! Cheers! Vinny
  11. Thanks! It's a Noy's Miniatures base I bought in Hannants.
  12. Thanks for all the excellent and positive feedback chaps. It's very much appreciated. Happy modelling! Vinny
  13. Wow! This is simply amazing! I haven't seen one of these built before. Superb modelling work
  14. Stunning! What a fantastic livery! Love it. Great job on this unusual bird. Thanks for sharing.
