  1. Do you really have to have another account on Flickr or similar?
  2. Okay, here is the current project chez nous. The 1/72 Supermarine Swift that Airfix did recently. A nice subject that I hope to do justice to. As a figure modeller at heart, I have developed a technique that runs at odds with aircraft doctrine, so there'll be a few diversions from the usual etiquette, and a bit of artistic licence. You have been warned. Now... how do I post pictures??
  3. Actually, Academy's offerings seem a tad erratic. Their Banshee was very simple, and a quick-fix build, but had a number of rough edges (nose wheel short, rocket mountings very askew) that mean it'll never be more than a practice model that I keep in the cabinet and am at least pleased with the paint job. Got their B-47 in 1/144, so am hoping for a better kit there. Everything else by them has been good: F-8 Crusader, Hellcat, Corsair, Warhawk.
  4. Interesting discussions happening here. Maybe potential for a group build........? Some time next year - but please not yet, cos I ain't got one!
  5. I like Academy. But will be aiming at GWH when it's out.
  6. They do look nice. And certainly large. What is OOP?

  8. I'll try to get some worthwhile photos. How do you make panel lines visible? It's a challenging part of painting

  10. It's interesting to look at a kit so familiar right now and see how someone else has presented it.
  11. Nice kits! And an interesting variety. Just finished Italeri's F100 here, too. I really enjoyed it. Did you go for the USAF or Armee de l'Air option?

    1/144 B52

    Hi Everyone I see Great Wall Hobbies have released a model kit of the iconic B52, something I'm looking forward to getting hold of. Has anyone seen one of these in the flesh? There are a few already on the market in 1/144 scale, and they are surprisingly expensive. It made me wonder why this is the case? Last few, now collector's items? Are they short runs in this scale? The Victor and the Vulcan were both over thirty quid, and to be fair they're really nice quality. Anyway, bring it on, and a letter to Santa is getting posted soon. Best regards...
  13. Hi Davide! Good to "meet" you. I'm also new here. What kind of aircraft have you built? I understand what you mean about a lack of space. Same situation here. Regards Dave
