  1. Just found this build, can't believe I've missed it. Read it from start to now. Absolutely incredible work! Love the masts and the RHIB, that really is amazing! Ach, I'd better stop there or I'll just start gushing and embarrass meself. Following.
  2. There is just so much cracking work and cracking thought and cracking detail here that your build is just... um.. Cracking! um, sorry. Loving this! The blether is good too. I seriously hope this turns out better than you expected! And, I think it will!
  3. Got directed here from another post. That is an absolutely fabulous, museum quality display! Beautifully and inspirationally done indeed! Well done mate!
  4. Some excellent models there, and scratchbuilt too! Nothing wrong with your English. Show us more please!
  5. Great to see this wee, absolute beauty back on the production line! You've shown incredible skill & ingenuity and I've learned a lot from what you're doing here. I love these wee 1/144 planes (fighters / small military transports, not tubeliners) and I'm building quite a collection which includes an Airco DH.2 If I can learn to scratch build what I want then even better although I've had quite a fight with a 1/144 Valom Sopwith Pup using PE struts and Ushci thread. The superglue just isn't strong enough to hold the struts. I think I'll try your vaping wire method.
  6. A beauty! An absolute cracker! You should be very proud of that! I love these wee 1/144 aircraft.
  7. Been to both Stranraer and West Freugh several times. West Freugh, in particular, is a long way from anywhere.
  8. Nope. Looks like 1/144 is your perfect scale! Lovely build and a cracking model!
  9. If you mean the two very slight paint ridges on the middle part of the bridge, perhaps some gentle sanding with a buffing stick will sort it? Until you mentioned it I hadn't noticed it... And even then I had to look hard to see the problem. Don't be too hard on yourself. Love the 1:1 boat!!!
  10. A very sad loss, especially to Her Majesty, The Queen.
  11. Try dangling them on fibre optic cable instead of wire? 0.50mm or 0.75mm might do the job. Unfortunately I won't get near my modelling stuff for another few weeks so can't advise on the diameter but it is extremely clear and hides well. I would advise against trying to light the Dementors & FO cable with LEDs as that leads to another well of light darkness.
  12. It would be a terrible pity to cover this incredible work with a fuselage and wings!
  13. Fabulous work Dirk! Really quite fabulous! Would the black areas be wood or metal?
  14. Welcome to the site and you have some seriously nice models / dioramas there!
  15. I bought a Valom 1:144 Sopwith Pup - dual combo last July from a site. On opening the sealed pack (very carefully as I knew there was tiny PE in it) I found that the PE was missing. As the PE was for the undercarriage and struts it would be sorely missed. I emailed Václav at www.valom.net. In a very quick return email he apologised and said a new PE set would be dispatched the next day. Sure enough, about a week later a new PE fret arrived in the post from the Czech Republic. Sometimes it really is worth contacting the manufacturer and the Valom response was superb!!! Rigging the wee beggar in 1/144 has been a different matter...
