  1. Muchas gracias. Being a Revell kit from the 90s it's okay. There's definitely better kits out there, this was just donated to me by my employer.
  2. Lucky I got this finished before May considering I got sick and didn't feel like modelling for a good week. Anyway in lieu of Top Gun Maverick releasing soon I felt my timing was good to finish this in the tail end of April. This kit was free from my employer (by the way if you're ever in Toronto feel free to drop by Sunward Hobbies and say hello) so this build was to showcase some of our in store products. This kit was okay, not great; there was some flash here and there as well as a noticeable lack of instrument decals & I admittedly sped things up a little near the end but it's done, so you can judge how it turned out. And now for the plug https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DQ89DIgj24
  3. I guess it's worth at least trying to write to them and see what happens. I don't have any direct relatives from England, but my last name is Peckham lol. Thanks again.
  4. Do you feel the need? This kit was generously donated to me by my employer Sunward Hobbies and will be my next build. This will be a slight change for me as I stick mostly to pre cold war subjects but a change of pace is always welcome. The kit looks straightforward and shouldn't take too long to complete (I sure hope so as June will be a very busy month for my channel). Check back in soon to see the progression of the build.
  5. Thanks for the info, I'm not quite sure yet exactly which field I would like to apply for. I currently work at a hobby store in Toronto doing low level tasks like cashier and shipping online orders. I'm very interested to exploring the industry further however, as well as discovering new parts of the world as I have never stepped foot outside North America.
  6. Hola comrades, not sure if anyone here might know the answer to this but I have seriously been considering pursuing a career of some sort in the hobby industry and I came across this page on Airfix's website. Would anyone here happen to already be employed by Airfix or another kit manufacturer and know what sorts of jobs they interview or hire for? If anyone can answer I would greatly appreciate it. Muchas gracias. https://uk.hornby.com/careers
  7. Hola comrades, my latest build is complete. I wanted to just build something quick over the winter but my perfectionism got the better of me again and this build went a little longer than I had intended. I Love Kits' well... kit may lack a little in interior detail (which is why I had to use an Eduard photo etch cockpit set) but it went together pretty well, and my new rigging method worked like a charm so take that doubters. If you want an in depth look at the build process you can check the vid out on youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fahFT6YfnNA
  8. I don't mean to brag but I actually cut them by hand. I have an olfa compass cutter but I can't for the life of me cut a complete circle with it, so I just grabbed my hobby knife with a spinnable blade and did it myself.
  9. I may have skipped ahead a little with the progress photos, the fuselage, wings and rigging wires (yes, I glued one side of the rigging wires prior to painting) and after my first attempt at painted roundels with my Aichi D3A, I ramped up the difficulty and tried painting RAF roundels as well as ID lettering.
  10. No, I had to buy an eduard set. The kit itself really lacks in cockpit detail.
  11. The Gladiator's cockpit is fully assembled, just waiting for the fuselage halves to embrace.
  12. For my next build, I felt like doing a quick and easy kit to warm me up for what will be an active next few months. So i've chosen I Love Kits' 1/48 scale Gloster Gladiator Mk. II. Aside from an eduard aftermarket photo etch set I got for it, the kit features few parts and should be finished in february.
  13. For the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I had chosen to build one of the perpetrators of that raid. I was told that japanese naval aircraft early in the war were kept in pristine condition so I did very little weathering to it. Other than the red stripes not quite aligning on the starboard landing gear leg, I was satisfied with this one.
  14. The empire is hard at work below decks preparing for December 7th. This is my first attempt at painting my own insignias, but I guess there's nothing easier than Japanese roundels.
