  1. Lovely finish of an unusual subject Chris - you're a machine mate! Cheers, Roger
  2. Lovely finish Tony - the weathering looks perfect to my eye, Cheers, Roger
  3. That's a great save Chris - looking lovely! The white will surely settle down under a flat coat? Cheers, Roger
  4. Looking good JRK - I have (another) one of these in my near future, and I'll be very happy if it looks this good! Cheers, Roger
  5. Some beautiful detail on the wipers Chris, and the Annie is looking lovely with decals in place! Look forward to seeing the Skyraider take shape, particularly with such a personal connection! Cheers, Roger
  6. Lovely work on both Tony, and great to see that the Airfix kit can be built into a great model, Cheers, Roger
  7. Thanks Chris, Had a lovely family holiday, but a big week at work put paid to stress-free! It is interesting to see the differences between the 2, and I have to say this is one of SH's better offerings - remarkably benign (so far!), Cheers, Roger
  8. Iain, Looking forward to this after seeing the beautiful work on the 1:48 version - I'm in! Cheers, Roger
  9. Hi All, Some good progress on both 'Fires today! As I'd forged ahead with the Mk.XV, I decided to bring the Mk.I up to a similar stage. Here's all of the cockpit sub-assemblies: I had procured Eduard's etch set for the Mk.I, so you can see that the IP has been applied (self-adhesive, donchaknow!). Here's another shot, as there was a bit of glare in the above photo: Doesn't look too bad! This is where the Mk.XV is up to: The two kits are very different in their approach to the cockpit assembly. Airfix have you build up the cockpit tub thus: You can see that I'm halfway through assembling the Sutton harness. As many have noted before the tolerances on the cockpit tub are hellishly tight, so proceed with caution! Here's another shot showing the IP in position: And here's another showing the completed harness: I then buttoned up the fuselage: I had a few odds and ends to complete on the Mk.XV (harness, drybrushing etc.), so here she is just prior to buttoning up: You may notice that I've done an oil wash on both cockpits. Finally, here's a shot of both fuselages together: I'm rather enjoying this! Thanks for looking, Roger
  10. Looking good CC - you've almost persuaded me do do mine as a post-war bird (almost!), Cheers, Roger
  11. Lovely build and finish Pete - welcome to the forum!
  12. Hi Chris, Been away with work and missed this - Anson is looking superb! Do you dream in yellow now?! Cheers, Roger
  13. Lovely build and finish - I think you have captured the look of the brute perfectly!
  14. Looking really good Iain - I've got (another) one of these in the stash, and your build is certainly inspiring! Cheers, Roger
  15. Hi Chris, The Anson looks lovely, shame about that paint reaction on the Sea Gladiator - I'm sure you'll recover the situation though! Cheers, Roger
  16. Lovely build and finish Simon - despite the issues you have completed this beautifully!
  17. Thanks for the kind words Chris -looking forward to getting away for a few days! Cheers, Roger
  18. Thanks very much John - will do! Cheers, Roger
  19. Hi All, A little progress, mainly on the Seafire (it's Labour Day here in South Australia - a public holiday ). We're off on a houseboat on the River Murray tomorrow for the week, so only a little bench time today between piling and sorting! I started with painting the spinner. The scheme calls for a roundel blue spinner with a couple of thin white stripes. I therefore primed and laid down the white first, and masked off the stripes: I then laid down the blue - here's the result after touching up both colours after some small runs: Macro photography is most unkind but it'll do! I then turned my attention to the instrument panel. There are two paths availably here - a PE version with a plastic sheet with the instruments printed on, and the moulded component. I decided to try the PE first (it must be better, right?), so I sprayed the rear of the sheet white: And here's the panel primed and sprayed black: I then assembled the components, and the results were a little, well, meh. I therefore decided to give the moulded version a go. This was sprayed black, drybrushed with white, the panel overpainted again in black, instrument dials picked out with gloss, and the colour details carefully added - phew! Here's both together: To my eye the moulded version wins, so I'm going with it. Here's another one just for affirmation: Yep, I'm going with that! That's all from me for a week or so, Thanks for looking, Roger
