    Stinson L-5 in 1/72

    Starting point the fuselage, but thinning everything is necessary!

    Stinson L-5 in 1/72

    Yeah I saw there was a version released by Sword, that is probably an easier build - not looking forward to the split vac form windows at all!

    Stinson L-5 in 1/72

    Looking to start this as an USAF L-5 Korean War bird, of course it will need a lot of scratch building and I have part etch sets from the Airfix Cessna Bird Dog and a few other sets that will assist in smaller details I hope. The main pieces are in good condition and will need much test fitting and grinding to fit and keep the good fabric detailing on the wings and tailplanes. Not much in the way of printed material on the type that I can find (particularly 1950’s use) but google helps. If anyone has any literature worth scanning It would be great to know? [/URL]

  5. Beautiful looking Nimrod, keep going!

    what was your very first Airfix kit.

    Airfix Sturmovic around 1990
  7. Love the build and the detail you have managed to cram in to the interior. I have a 1/72 Matchbox Lynx to re-purpose as a 1970's 'Whif' the US Navy purchased the heli' so your methods are inspiring!
  8. Using the undercarriage and some others small parts - gun carriage - air intake parts and some cockpit parts to add some more detail to the model. Some of the decals may be handy too but not sure of the squadron and scheme yet (will be RAF for sure).
  9. Great build and a good looking Venom John, especially building it as the prototype- a beautiful aircraft. I have the 1/72 Aeroclub Venom fb.4 so very interested in your interpretation of the model and build techniques used

    Tips for building 1:72 Pegasus biplanes?

    Thanks! I will do this
  11. A stunning looking Vampire and a definite nod for a new Venom in the same scale! Just starting a 1/72 Aeroclub Venom FB4 and considering using the Airfix Vampire for spares and upgrades to this kit.

    Seventy Second Scale Modeller magazine??

    So there were three Javelin articles? In numbers 1, 3 & 4?
  13. Tempted to do a Revell Wellington Mk.II but perhaps as another version. I have read the Revell kit comes with spare parts that are not used in the boxes aircraft (Mk.II). What extra parts does it come with? Also, it it the mpm mould or something different? Thanks
