  1. A masterpiece indeed, you continue to set the standard in 1:72. Inspirational
  2. Afternoon all, My latest off the bench, as my Russian theme moves into the jet age, is the lovely 1/72 MiG-15 from Eduard. This is the Profipack edition finished completely OOB; fit was a bit tight in areas so a bit of filler here and there, but generally it was a problem free build. Finished using Hataka Orange Line and Aclad lacquers- I've always been a bit scared of the unforgiving nature of natural metal finishes, so thought it was about time I gave it another go. My inability to achieve a flawless surface finish is highlighted more than usual, but generally I'm pretty pleased
  3. Wonderful model with a very convincing finish
  4. Many thanks for such great feedback, I'm very humbled, and glad you enjoyed the family pics I'll be honest, I'd have preferred an F-104C in USAF colours for this collection, but the Hase F-104G is the best kit in this scale, and I had it in the stash, and I love the Marineflieger scheme, so it was a no brainer in the end! Thanks again, Shaun
  5. Morning all, Rounding off my Century Series project is the 1/72 F-106A from Trumpeter. Overall a very nice kit with excellent fit, my only criticism being the location of the underwing joins not being along a panel line and passing through several smaller panels which made clean up a little awkward. This is built completely OOB using Hataka Orange Line and Alclad paints as always.

  6. Morning all, The latest addition to my WW2 Russian theme is the Clearprop 1/72 LA-5. A nice enough little kit on the whole, the fit is a bit iffy in places, with the cockpit being a touch too wide, necessitating some trimming here and there, but on the whole not too bad. Strangely the pre-cut masks for the windshield did not have the same framing as the plastic part, and while there is a good amount of etch provided that offers a more finessed approach to areas such as the undercarriage doors, I elected to use the plastic parts provided for ease. Finished OOB using Hataka and Alcla
  7. Thanks for the kind words all, much appreciated Just the classic blu-tak sausages for the edges in filled with tape- nothing fancy! The colours are from Hataka's Orange Line Vietnam Era USAF Paint Set HTK-C039 - FS 36622 Camouflage Grey HTK-C012- FS 30219 Dark Tan HTK-C-021 FS 34102 Medium Green HTK-C016 FS 34079 Dark Green Soon! Thank again, Shaun
  8. Morning all, Bringing my Century Series theme to 5/6 completion is Trumpeter's very nice 1/72 Thud. Finished as an F-105G Wild Weasel completely OOB, except for the stars and bars which were poorly printed and needed replacing with some spare ones. A very nice kit with no major fit issues at all. Research revealed that the suggested loadouts of twin AIM-54s on each outboard pylon was never carried, so I modified the launchers to carry a single Shrike and go for the more conventional WW loadout used- not 100% accurate but it passes! Painted with Hataka Orange Line and Alclad for the
  9. Thanks for the great feedback all, very humbling. I'm my own worst critic, so I always appreciate the kind words The huge number of stencils were time consuming, around 7 hours in total I think, but when there isn't much else to do on a Saturday but sit in front of the TV watching sports it soon passed by! Ultimately worth it too I think. Small world indeed, but no relation of mine
  10. Looking forward to seeing this one come together, such a beautiful jet.

  11. I'm a big fan of your work, this is an absolute beauty
  12. Evening all, After a delay sourcing replacement decals, the next Century Series fighter is complete; Hasegawa's Starfighter, finished as an F-104G of the German Navy using Xtradecal for the main markings and Astra decals for the myriad of stencils. The Xtradecals were out of register, which is especially disappointing when you pay for aftermarket, and some of the stencils have silvered a bit, which is more my own fault, so overall a frustrating result of many hours applying them all! I also added a Pavla seat, which I think is intended for earlier version, plus there's a few other
