  1. Thank you all for great feedback, far too kind as always
  2. Tough decision to make, but here goes. All 1/72 Tamiya Corsair Tamiya Spitfire Eduard Hellcat Eduard MiG-21 Academy F-8 Crusader Academy F-14 Tomcat GWH F-15 Eagle GWH Su-35 Airfix Harrier GR7/9 Bandai Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon
  3. Evening all, It's four down, one to go for my 48FW theme build, following the completion of this Trumpeter 1/72 F-100D. My second Super Sabre of the year, it was just as largely trouble free as the first with no real pitfalls as far as fit is concerned. I added an Aires exhaust I found in the stash whilst the decals are from an Xtradecal sheet- I believe the gate guard at RAF Lakenheath wears the same markings. Finished using Alclads mostly- I used dull aluminium to represent the silver paint used on the bulk of the airframe, with the centre panels of the wings and tailplane sprayed in a slightly darkened tone. The exhaust area was finished in a range of metallic and hot metal colours over an aluminium base. Much happier with the results here compared to my previous build.

Thanks for looking, comments welcomed as always Shaun
  4. I had considered that option but really would prefer glass on at least three sides. Probably being too picky for my own good, but may have to consign myself to forking out a sizeable chunk of money to get the sort of thing I'm after....
  5. Thought I'd resurrect this thread as I'm looking into glass display cabinets for future larger 1/72 builds. I currently have a number of Detolf cases which are perfect for 1/72 fighters, although some of the larger fighter jets are a bit of a squeeze, but I'm after something much deeper to accommodate bombers. A shelf depth of around 500mm would be ideal really, but having done plenty of searching I'm struggling to find anything around that size, and certainly not cheaply- 400mm seems to be the upper limit and I won't get my shiny new Vulcan in that! There must be a solution that many of you use, especially the larger scale modellers who must otherwise have a tough time fitting anything in a case! Any suggestions gratefully received
  6. Thanks chaps, glad they were of interest Cheers, not nearly as close as I'd have liked though! They didn't quite play ball sadly and the heat haze was a nightmare.... Can't complain in the circumstances mind, not everyday we get to see this! These were shot from a little along the fence from the museum in the Northwest corner of the airfield. Google Maps confirms it is indeed Danebury Hillfort
  7. Afternoon all, A few images from Middle Wallop to catch the 9-ship of Pumas stopping for fuel during their 50th anniversary flypast yesterday. Hot and hazy conditions made photography tricky, so these are only record shots really, but nice to witness the event nonetheless. Hope they're of interest.

  8. Thanks all, glad they were of interest Yes, it's a fair old trek, but I've become well used to it over the years!

  10. Morning all, Enjoyed a fine day at Old Warden on Sunday for their military pageant, a decent line up overall and we were pretty lucky with the weather, somehow managing to dodge some pretty heavy showers that skirted the airfield throughtout the afternoon, but which made for some dramatic skies at times. The line up was pretty solid, but for me the stand out item by a country mile was the Sea King. I've always had a soft spot for the Junglies in particular, and was absolutely delighted to see it was this cab they chose display when it arrived at Old Warden. A long awaited reunion with the King! I'll update the thread with a more diverse set of images in due course, but for now here's a handful of the Junglie- more on my Flickr for those interested.

  11. Gents, thank you very much for your expert input From that I reckon I could get away with building '594 circa late 1970 with conventional bomb bay and no mods, which keeps things nice and simple, just the way I like it! Oh yes please! PM inbound
  12. Yeah, not ideal.... Still, like I said I'm in no rush, will make sure all the other parts are present and correct before I request a replacement though!
  13. Fantastic, thank you, although there's no rush, I don't plan to build it for a while yet, just trying to get ahead of the game for when I get round to it Here's the short shot cockpit, quite a bit missing!
  14. Ideal. A quick Google suggests that the change to the two tone roundels and LAG underside began in the mid 70s, so on that basis it's not unreasonable to assume I'd be OK to model '594 in the early camo scheme with a conventional loadout? Finding images to confirm has been tricky so far, but I'm keen to do that scheme over the later one if possible.... On another more general note, having just looked through my kit I've noticed the cockpit floor piece- C01- is short shot. Something for others to look out for.
