  1. Afternoon all, Fresh off the bench is build number 21 for the year, and I returned to an old favourite in the Eduard Hellcat II. Finished completely OOB in the colours of 1844 Sqn FAA using Hataka Orange Line as usual. 1/72 Eduard Grumman Hellcat II by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Eduard Grumman Hellcat II by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Eduard Grumman Hellcat II by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Eduard Grumman Hellcat II by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Eduard Grumman Hellcat II by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr
  2. Thank you all for such nice feedback, I'm very humbled! Glad the collection has been so well received too, there's still a few gaps to fill, but that's for another time. Thanks again, Shaun
  3. Afternoon all, Number 20 for the year done and dusted, the rather lovely Ju88A-1 by Revell. Been waiting a long time for a Battle of Britain variant in 1/72, but it was worth the wait, a great little kit, if a bit tricky in a couple of areas. Built completely from the box save for some Eduard Seat belts and a handful of markings from Xtradecal, and finished as ever using Hataka Orange Line Lacquers. This build completes by BoB collection for now- I can't face building an Airfix Blenheim, and the wait continues for an early He111H variant that can be done from the box- s
  4. Thanks all, much appreciated. Seems the general consensus is this kit can be quite frustrating!
  5. Afternoon all, Thought I'd share build 19 for the year, fresh off the bench and a return to my Battle of Britain theme. Started 5 years ago, but quickly put back in the box for some reason. Quite a fiddly build in places and another harsh reminder that my glazing work has much room for improvement... The cockpit had some help from Eduard's interior zoom PE, and the main markings come from an Xtradecal sheet. Finished as ever using Hataka Orange Line paints. 6W7A5591 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 6W7A5592 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 6W7A5593 by
  6. Thanks all, much appreciated, glad they were of interest. Hopefully you could all tell I really enjoyed my first taste of Lakenheath! Nope, I was stood on top of my step ladder, although there were plenty of other photographers along the fencelines that were shooting through it. I'd much rather clear the top of it to make life easier
  7. Morning all, Like many enthusiasts in recent weeks, I spent a few days in Suffolk last week, visiting Lakenheath for the first time. The main objective was to simply shoot the Eagles, but three days after the trip was booked, the Aviano F-16 deployment was announced, so that was a massive bonus! We also did pretty well with the weather, which was spot on for the first two days and even had runway 06 in use on the Monday, so I managed to bag the jets from just about every angle from the Eastern end of the airfield. We also spend the Wednesday morning at Mildenhall, my first visit si
  8. Thanks chaps Made one last trip up to Fairford yesterday morning in the hope I'd catch one or two jets would be heading home. Turned out to be a good decision as five of them departed for Minot. Not a bad haul for a Saturday...

  9. Thanks Robert, they're certainly not environmentally friendly!
  10. Afternoon all, Thought I'd share some images from a couple of trips up to Fairford in the last week to catch the B-52s on deployment. First, a frustrating afternoon on the 10/09 resulted in just a couple of images of YANKEE41 returning Boeing B-52H Stratofortress | 60-0005/MT | US Air Force | RAF Fairford | 10/09/20 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Boeing B-52H Stratofortress | 60-0005/MT | US Air Force | RAF Fairford | 10/09/20 by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr I had much more luck on the 14/09 with KAGO flight returning after a long mission, plus the
  11. Thank you all for the very kind feedback, much appreciated
  12. Afternoon all, A few images of build 18 for the year, the superb Academy Helldiver, finished as a Mk I of 1820 NAS using Xtradecals' Yanks with Roundels sheet. I didn't do my research so there are a few inaccuracies- I should have filled the holes in the ventilated dive brakes, and the replacement three-bladed prop from Quickboost is designed for a Hurricane, but it's all close enough for my untrained eye, and looks good on my now very full FAA lend-lease shelf I think Academy 1/72 Curtiss Helldiver I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Academy 1/72 Curtiss Helld
  13. Thanks all, much appreciated as ever I was in the middle zone, adjacent to the 'roadway' nearest the control tower, 5th row back. Decent spot, not that there's really a bad spot at Old Warden.
  14. Afternoon all, A few images from me from what was another superb drive-in airshow at Old Warden. A delightful selection of aircraft displayed in some unexpected sunshine, given the overcast forecast, which produced some glorious light, particularly for the wonderful Spitfire and Hurricane pairing.
