  1. A recently finished build, this Tamiya P47D was built for a good friend. Finished in the colours of the Brazilian Air Force, it represents a machine flown by Ten. Cel. Nero Moura in 1944. Build was OOB and straightforward..well it IS a Tamiya kit The only aftermarket used was an Eduard instrument panel. Finished with Tamiya Laquers and lightly weathered, per my friends wishes. Decals are from the excellent FCM Decals and they went down without any problems. I must admit to having no knowledge of these machines being used by the BAF, but a bit of research brought up some interesting reading. Thanks for looking Gary
  2. Lovely job on a great subject, that cockpit looks amazing! Gary
  3. Thank you! Afraid not, the model has movend onto pastures new and I retrieved that one picture from a corrupted flash drive, doh! I promise I will take multiple photosof my builds next time, and upload them to the cloud Gary
  4. Hi, as promised, here are a couple of shots of my recent builds. Nothing spectacular, just getting back into the hobby, so I was not aiming for 100% accuracy with the colours etc, just getting to grips with handling plastic and paints etc! And before anyone comments, yes I do know the Meteor's ejector seat warning triangles are on upside down...now corrected! The Meteor is the Airfix 1/48 F8, a lovely, easy build. Built for a friend, I used aftermarket FCM decals, Brazilian AF. A7 Corsair is the Hobby Boss 1/48 kit, simple, not heavily detailed and went together very well. All the best Gary
  5. Thanks Dennis Please do't hate me but I don't follow football!! I do hear more about Man U though, if that makes you feel better!! Gary
  6. I must admit, I did a clean up before taking the pics..it's not usually that tidy, believe me
  7. Hello all, New member, been a lurker for ages and decided to finally take the plunge by joining and de-cloaking... From Manchester, long time modeller but returned to the hobby about 2 years ago. Mostly aircraft modelling, 1/48 and larger, but will try my hand at any genre. Retired now and living alone, so very fortunate to have the time to indulge my hobby! Lucky to have a third bedroom converted to my workshop-used to build in the shed outside but long cold winter nights forced me indoors! there are obviously some fine builders in here so no doubt I'll be picking your brains from time to time with my stupid questions Once I get myself sorted, I'll post up some of my builds, here are a couple of my workshop to start with. It's actually changed a little since taking the photos, it's a constant WIP! Cheers Gary
