  1. Thanks all, much appreciated Yes, the closed bay comes as a single piece. Had the interior of the bay been more detailed I'd have opened it up, but you're right, this gives a better impression of the lines of the jet. The F-106 will be opened when I get to it though. Thanks again, Shaun
  2. Evening all, . Bringing my Century Series theme to the halfway point is the excellent Meng 1/72 F-102A. A superb kit with good details and great fit on the whole. I replaced the seat with a resin example seat from Pavla, while the markings come from an Xtradecal sheet, although I elected to paint the fin rather than use the decals provided. Paints as always are Hataka Orange Line for the main colours and Alclad for the metals, final coat is a light coat of W&N Galeria Matt for a satin sheen.

  3. No, I made life easy for myself and glued the tray in position. If I'm honest I've no idea if Oregon ANG did use the Genies or not, but I opted for them as something a little different
  4. Thanks all, much appreciated I used Mig Productions Neutral Wash I believe it's Revell's own tooling due to the recessed panel lines
  5. Morning all, Another day, another completion. The next instalment in my Century Series theme, this is Revell's F-101B Voodoo. A decent kit with largely excellent fit, although I needed to do a bit of sanding and trimming to get the cockpit and nosegear bay to fit nicely. Otherwise, it was largely problem free. Finished completely OOB using Hataka Orange Line and Alclad lacquers.

  6. Very nice, I have this kit on my to-do list for later in the year, looks so good in the box and your build proves it
  7. Morning all, Next off the production line is the delightful little Yak-1B from Arma Hobby. A really great little kit to put together with excellent details and zero fit issues. This is the expert boxing finished completely OOB using Hataka Orange Line lacquers as ever.

  8. Thanks again, I can only speak for myself but the Orange Line has been a revelation for my modelling since I switched to them a year or so ago, definitely recommended
  9. Thanks for the additional comments Not freehand, I use the blu-tak sausage method for masking, I find freehand camo in 1/72 for the most part leaves an over-scale feathered edge. I use a Bartsharp BD-180 airbrush with a 0.2mm nozzle. HTH
  10. Thanks for the kind feedback all, much appreciated as always
  11. Evening all, My first of the new year, and with it a change of theme. This is Trumpeter's F-100C Super Sabre, finished OOB with the exception of the decals which came from an Xtradecal sheet. I wasn't brave enough to go with the NMF finishes of the kit options, plus I think the SEA scheme looks great on just about everything, so I played it safe, although the heat staining around the tail presents it's own challenge, and one I'm not convinced I've pulled off as well as I had hoped... Finished using Hataka Orange Line for the camouflage and various shades of Alclad for the exhaust a
  12. Thanks for the additional comments guys, much appreciated
  13. Many thanks for feedback, much appreciated as always
  14. Morning all, May I present my 2020 yearbook. Obviously it's been a mostly dreadful year in so many ways, but one positive I've taken away from it is a renaissance in my enthusiasm in modelling. I had rediscovered my mojo before lockdown hit, but being furloughed for two and half months, and subsequently working reduced hours has meant I've been able to dedicate so much spare time to the workbench. As such, I've managed 26 completions this year, a personal record since I got back into the hobby properly in 2008. I've found building to themes has helped maintain the enthusiasm; the 80th Ann
