  1. Same here; there are a lot of good ideas competing for those few slots. The tactical voting is going to be savage.
  2. Cooler than cool, punker than punk.
  3. Cool builds, sir. I flew with 6 AEF once; I'll have to check my 3822 and see if it was in that airframe. I can't believe it took Airfix so long to get around to a tidy 1/48 Chippy, but I'm really enjoying the plethora of builds that are showing up on BM. Now, will Airfix make a 1/24 version? I reckon there are enough of us who cut our teeth on Chippies to warrant it!
  4. Little more than a teaser, I'm afraid. I seem to have been stuck doing piddly little bits here and there, even though I thought "Surely the gloss coat will be next" about two weeks ago.... Turns out that real life truly gets in the way of building. Anyway, tonight I put most of the undercarriage and the speed brakes in, so I am at least getting somewhere, if not making giant leaps. I've also got the black paint on the arrestor hook and cut out and painted the transparent sections of the navigation lights. So, there's some progress being made. Hopefully I can get the gloss coat on soon. Cheers, and thanks for keeping the faith! Owen
  5. The build's coming on well, James. Much smarter than mine, I have to say!
  6. Yes, Enzo!! They both look very cool indeed.
  7. Lovely primer job, Robert. I wish I could get it to lay down that nicely.
  8. Cracking job there, Luke! It's been an age since I looked in at this STGB but so nice to see what a great job you've done.
  9. Sorry Marklo, I haven't checked in for ages - it's great to see you've made some excellent progress on these builds.
  10. I've just started another band; it's rock covers that aren't usually played by your standard rock covers bands, and we're going to do this.
  11. This arrived for me this morning. One thing's for sure - I'll be buying a set of masks for the glazing rather than cutting my own. The interior detailing is not quite as good as the recent new toolings (this being a re-release) but the exterior is superb. One more for the Luftwaffe Twins GB, should it survive the November carnage.
  12. Hello Monty, it's good to have you here. The forum's membership offers a wealth of experience and advice to those who are getting started or are in the intermediate stages (I like to think of myself as being an intermediate, skill-wise, but I may be flattering myself here!) and help is given freely. It's a very nice community to be part of and I hope very much that you enjoy it.
  13. I don't know how I missed this build, James, but it looks fantastic. I wish I'd known about and followed the WIP thread. Either way, it's a cracking model.
  14. Funnily enough it'a a word my brother and I used to use between us when we were younger, and it just slipped out whilst I was typing. It seemed appropriate so I left it!
  15. I thought you'd been a bit quiet, recently, sir. Glad to know it's due to the new little 'un arriving safely.
  16. You always amaze me with your builds, Mark, and I find myself wondering "How will he top that?" And then I see your next project. She's absolutely bonzer.
  17. I think she looks grand, personally. I built the kit last winter and used Quickboost resin to correct the weird front end. Considering you were ill when you built and painted it I think you did a superb job.
  18. If I was a good enough modeller to worry about 100% accuracy, I wouldn't worry about 100% accuracy. As I'm not a good enough modeller to worry about 100% accuracy, I don't worry about 100% accuracy.
