  1. Great pics, worth the effort and the wait. Although the Ospreys were the main event, the Spanish Navy Bravo is a real novelty! Alan
  2. I'm at the same stage with mine, lots of little ordnance, canopy and landing gear details, much effort for little perceived progress, but it all counts!
  3. Glad it worked out in the end with the canopy tint! Great effort already.
  4. Great start! Not sure about how much time you need vs the GB deadline, but at this rate it'll be done by the weekend
  5. Thanks for that. I can do wear and tear of required but this was worth keeping neat and tidy! Well, thank you very much Donating world be more realistic, but thank you very much Thank you very much Bernd, not seen you for a while since I stopped building ships You're all very kind, thanks very much for commenting Alan
  6. Hi Marc, I thought he expressed himself very clearly. This Revell kit probably isn't going to meet his preference for quality at the price point being offered. Aside from that it was a tongue in cheek comment intended for him, and I'm not sure why you're asking, following your very pointed comments above. I've no axe to grind here. My philosophy is pretty open regarding these repetitive discussions regarding new kits - if you want one, you'll buy one. If you don't want one, you won't. No need for either of those groups to tread on the other, it's an entirely subjective choice, however you try to frame it.
  7. I knew loads of these in service... Alitalia: 'Aircraft Lands in Tokyo, All Luggage in Amsterdam' Delta: 'Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport' or 'Delivers Everyone's Luggage To Atlanta' BOAC: 'Better On A Camel' TAP (Portugal): Take A Parachute Swiss: So What, It's Still Swissair Qantas and Lufthansa: (which unfortunately would get me banned ) We also had acronyms to reflect the different attitudes of our main bases - LGW was 'Let's Get Wasted' while LHR was 'Let's Have Roomservice' Sorry for the thread creep
  8. Very nice, what a monster! Great consistency of finish over such a large model, really well done. Whatever the 'known inaccuracies' of the Trumpeter kit might be, it certainly knocks spots off the dinosaur Tamiya version, this looks very good indeed.
  9. Jeez I can't put anything past you this week Eric
  10. It certainly wasn't mine then. Built and finished in two weeks, not the best kit but an impressive result. Sick of hearing how tewwibly awful it is, it's fine if you don't mind actual modelling.
  11. Not the same aircraft but the same era: https://www.airlineratings.com/wp-content/uploads/uploads/720-022-N7203U-Boe-K6409.jpg Shows the different colours up very well.
  12. Thanks Dennis, I used MRP lacquer paints for the camouflage: Sand FS 33531, Green 34227 and Tan 30219.I saw these on @Stephens Israeli C-130 and they looked spot on. The underside blue was mixed from Xtracrylix RLM 65 Hellblau, FS 34151 Interior Green and FS 36622 Light Gray. Thanks, still slowly working on this. Alan
  13. That's very much a horses for courses thing then, I like something impressive that's taken a bit of effort to build, otherwise I might as well stick to Lego. Look out for my build log, I've cleared a space in November and December to build this. But if it does turn out like the Super Hornet, I'll still have fun building it and it'll be a nice display model regardless.
