  1. All the main assembly now finished, waiting for the glue to set properly then a bit of paint. Thanks for looking, G
  2. Right completely forgot about this GB(sorry) but I think this will just about fit in at £2 form and show so long ago I still had HAIR!!!! Thats it for the mo, I'll get cracking a.s.a.p, as usual too many projects on the bench at the same time. Thanks for looking, G
  3. Haven't bought a GW kit for a loooong time but with the release of 9th edition 40k rules I couldn't resist any longer, the new "GHAZGHKULL THRAKA" model as my Boyz need all the help they need with me rolling the dice . Yup the gaps in the sprues are cos in my excitement I started assembly then thought DOH no pics(numpty)!!! I admit it's been quite a few years since I last made a plastic injection molded kit from GW but I'm supprised with the design and fit of the model so far, very clever. Thats it for now, da boss says back to snipping plastik ya git, get on with it....... Thanks for looking, G
  4. Hi Peter, thanks I'll have a closer look. I currently have pulled humbrol 117 out as the most likely that I have at the moment. G
  5. Right finally back for more, got some primer on though used velejo surface primer brushed on not a rattle can as I'm going to have a go at hand painting and canopy spars cos I hate masking canopys. Not sure which paints I'm going to use yet, I've got some enamels to fall back on if needed but hoping to find some acrylics in the box that will be close enough. Thanks for looking, G
  6. Main assembly is now done but it's been a fight all the way with much cutting and trimming(some rural bad language) and no small amount of filling going on. The biggest problem is getting the tail booms in whilst stopping them twisting,its not as good as I would like but hey ho. Going back for more filling, sanding and start to think about getting the canopy on. Thanks for looking, G
  7. Hi Richard, the paint is a citadel base paint called Alaitoc blue um I think it's the one I used at least(it looked about right color). I put the pot away then thought, aahhh ummm which one was that!!!
  8. God's how long has it been....... , starting to make a bit of progress now so going to try to keep it going now, I might even make the deadline!!!! Sorry folks I can't delete the second image as my phone is being a pain in the bottom. Cockpit tub is together now too. Thats all for now, thanks for looking. G
  9. It's time I jumped in and got cracking with this build. So a few of the usual pics, all the sprues look nice and clean, hopefully trouble free. This will be built straight from the box, sweet and simple. Thanks for looking, G
  10. Still hoping to make the deadline! so it's a good job that this is a straight forward kit. Some progress is made, so next is the assembly. Thanks for looking, G
  11. Thanks guys, very helpful of you. G
  12. OK all done, somehow I've skipped a post, not sure how. Only let down was a badlt behaved decal which ended up with a chunk missing and found them rather fragile, possibly their age and my clumsiness. I enjoyed this little build, thanks for looking. G
  13. Morning folks, years ago I bought a phantom kit in its sprue bag. No decals, no instructions, nothing!! Decals I think I can scare some bits up from spares e. c. t But instructions I could do with if I can narrow down the manufacturer. Does anybody recognise the kit?? The sprue bag says made in Italy, does that point to Italeri?? It's an older kit with the arrester hook molded on the body. I might find the instructions online if I can identify the kit. Cany anybody help?? All the best, G
  14. Uhooo I sence this won't be as simple as I think it should be.......... OH well, its a bit more scratching on the head, no wonder there's no hair left.
  15. As my baby hurricane is moving along quite nicely I thought I'd like to have a go at this. It's been in the stash for a while and I can't remember where or when I got it but I think it's complete although the decals are badly knackered so they have been replaced. Other than that as normal I will build out of the box, this another simple straightforward build(famous last words!!). Thanks for looking, I will start it today. G
