  1. My first ship in a few decades 4 anyway!! this wee model of the Cossack is from Aeroplast and not a scale i can say i would usually opt for but in for a penny and all that... it turned out ok pleased with the results but open to comments good or otherwise Enjoy simon
  2. Final instalment some small bits of fettling to do but all in all i really enjoyed this,
  3. Always interested in all things Shackleton my old man was chief tech on WL757 Brian 8 squadron based in kinloss and latterly RAF Lossie (a shared naval base at the time HMS FULMAR) before he left in the mid 70s, for a start in the new north sea oil industry setting up in aberdeen..

  6. Thank you still new to this posting pictures but getting there
  7. Started this after the new year and it's coming together ok, having built a lot of Tamiya I can see the difference in the quality of the kits, but I have tried my best to get it as close as possible found a few helpful Pinterest picture and here is where I am so far, The chrome plating I normally strip but I have left it on the wheels, forks, clutch and left hand casing I hope to touch these up with alclad chrome, engine and frame have taken a bit of fettling to get right, but all in its ok and I am learning how useful plastic putty is... kit comes with red and black tubing for ht leads and cables my mistake never read the instructions and used black instead but in my defence the red are fairly garish (hope that's a word) and I have taken licence on a couple of other items as everything according to the kit should be silver/alloy but it looks to silver so I used gun metal on the cards and some other mixes elsewhere like the distributor the frame took me ages to paint silver red looks much better but the original was silver so silver it is simon
