  1. You're making great progress and following your build is very educational - using masking tape to protect panel lines from excess putty is something I've not seen before, but makes perfect sense. Brilliant.
  2. Ha, I'm doing exactly the same with my Airfix Buccaneers - currently building the RAF machine first to hone my better work for the Senior Service!
  3. Tagging along for this one as I've got the RN FG1 that I'm hoping to tackle in the near future.
  4. I take it back then, if they're willing to churn out a relatively obscure - yet severely under-represented - subject like the Defiant in different scales in quick succession then anything's possible
  5. Cracking effort, you've done a really nice job to depict a loco that's seen its fair share of use.
  6. You'd think that it must be on their radar considering how often it gets mentioned on here and elsewhere but... from a marketing perspective, would they release a kit in 1/48 so soon after doing it in 1/72? The S2B only hit the shelves earlier this year, though admittedly that was because it was delayed from 2020. I'd wager that we'll have to wait a little while longer, though I'll gladly be proved wrong! Have Airfix set a precedent (in recent times, at least) of releasing the same subject in different scales in quick succession? If they have, I suspect it must have had elliptical wings
  7. I missed that, I was too busy trying to work out what the aircraft that was blurred out on his screen could be. They're definitely trolling us with the F35s now, there were at least two in different scales within one shot this week.
  8. I'm in. The default choice would be a Viggen, though could do something Swiss.
  9. I'm in. Undecided what I'll build but the Hellenic Air Force lends itself to some interesting subjects.
  10. Sounds like a great idea. I'm probably leaning towards the civilian side; maybe the Italeri Ford Transit or Miniart beer van, or something railway related. Either way, sign me up.
  11. What a beast. Great job with the undercarriage, it certainly looks like it's straining under 20-odd tonnes of Soviet air superiority. Terrific pics too
  12. Really nicely done. Certainly get the impression that the engine would sound as rough as the paintwork! Inspiring stuff
  13. Very tempted to get one of these, I'll be interested to see how it goes. That's a very smart scheme you've earmarked too. Good luck!
  14. That's a brilliant finish you've achieved there. Very inspiring for a fellow hairysticksmith
  15. If we're talking 80s synths then Swede Dreams (Are Made of This) by the Eurythmics would be pretty apt...
