  1. Looking brilliant! I love how you're achieving the subtlest variation in shades, its just enough to create a change in the colours without suggesting that they're anything other than olive green over grey. Masterful work, if I may say so! Cheers, Mark
  2. Oh, yeah! Just starting the Christmas Special Never tried the raffle ticket wheeze, but it's an idea I'll squirrel away for emergencies! Cheers, Mark
  3. While away over the weekend visiting my Mum, I found a couple of books that I'd forgotten about. One of those is "Malta George Cross: Victory in the Air" by Richard J Caruana. The upshot is that there may be yet another Hurricane build on the cards: this time one from the Malta Nightfighter Unit. A bit more re-reading of said books plus @tonyot's "No Place for Beginners" is required. Plus I've got a copy of Tom Neil's "Scramble" to read as well! Happy days! Cheers, Mark
  4. Hi Chris, So sorry I've not answered before - not sure how I missed your post. And I've been away over the weekend visiting my Mum - first time since Christmas, of course - and been without internet worthy of the name! You're absolutely right about it being a hobby with great VFM. I'm really very lucky in that Jane is very forgiving of my model aeroplane purchases, although I do sneak a few in under the radar out of embarrassment! As for speed of progress, I'd just like to be able to get more done, but I have one speed only: glacial We've seen the two series of "Ghosts" now, pr
  5. Looks great, Alistair! Building first and then painting seems to a good option for Arma kits (it would have certainly made my Hurricanes a bit easier!). Could you include which paints you're using as well, please? Looking forward to seeing your next instalment Cheers, Mark
  6. Great work, Martin! That really pops. Are you building a diorama for it to sit in? Cheers, Mark
  7. Thanks, Alistair, that's great - need to store that tip away for when I do mine! (Almost guaranteed to forget!!!) Cheers, Mark
  8. Were the fuselage halves held together with tape or something, while you assemble the undercarriage? Is that to make painting easier? Thanks, Mark
  9. Fabulous Gladiator! I've got several of these in my stash, might have to change a planned build to a BoF aircraft like yours! Great work! Cheers, Mark
  10. Urrrgggghhhhhh! All I saw of that were the clips on Gogglebox, and even then I nearly soiled myself! Cheers, Mark
  11. Thanks, Chris, very kind of you! I was hoping to start getting some camo on the Arma Hurricanes before now, but hey ho! Progress is always slower than I hope for I've been trying to resist the Airfix kit for quite a while, but I've finally succumbed - there have been so many great builds of it! It was Jane's daughter that put us on to "Ghosts" - it's going to become one of our staples that we go back to time and again, like "Fawlty Towers". I think there's a Christmas special, and a third series is planned. Cheers, Mark
  12. Just to prove that I've achieved something this week, here are the spinners for the two Arma Hurricanes in their respective primers: http:// You may also espy the upper wing panels of the Airfix Mk.I Hurricane with the areas behind the gun access panels masked off. Some Mr Dissolved Putty awaits. And that'll be it, as I'm otherwise engaged over the weekend. Thanks for looking in, comments, suggestions and corrections always welcome
