  1. If anyone in Canada needs Border models Lancaster wing scoops.. I'am your guy
  2. Very similar damage to my kit, replacement parts are on their way to me. Good luck with the triple build, that’s insane!
  3. Glad you managed to get some modelling time in! I miss the gang here but life comes first.. I love the propellers on this aircraft, so menacing Have you tried the Alclad aqua gloss recommended by to me by Procopious? Excited to see some decals!
  4. Thanks Troy. The lighter fluid technique sounds interesting and I cannot wait to play around with with it. I applied the Tamiya white pastel to the exhausts and it seemed to go on ok, adds a nice little extra detail.
  5. Thats very cool about you’re build, I love Hornets and will follow along if you have a WHIP. Thank you for the compliments! So… are saying I should start the Border models kit? B/c I think I will leave the Airfix one I started as a mule. The cockpit is comically bad, compared to what I can achieve now.
  6. That chipping looks so life like. Great build so far
  7. "OK, no idea about actual modelling pastels, I just a cheap set of earth colour chalk pastels....." I basically completely died inside when I read this lol . I drove all over the place picking those up. You never once referred to modelling pastels but for some reason in my head, thats what i needed..
  8. Earlier today I got the aerial wire attached. A few weeks ago I broke the piece that the wire attaches to, so I just glued it to the top of the rudder. Hardly visible in the photo and maybe too thin for scale but in real life it looks decent. Hands were feeling good today!
  9. I feel guilty about the amount of effort you put into these posts but I really do appreciate it. I have read your last entry about 5x. Getting to inspect that 1/1 Hurricane up close must have been so cool. I went a little crazy on the pastels today at the model shop, got some repeat colours but nice to have a variety in stock. For this build, which I need finish.. I plan to just add some white pastel to the exhaust and then go for a freshly washed look. I bought a mule so I’ll be experimenting for the next build. The artistic side of weathering is something I am not at all comfortable with and I don’t want to ruin this model trying to bite off more than I can chew
  10. Got a little shout out for Britmodeller at the start of Nigel’s latest video
  11. Too kind, this is the friendliest online community I have ever participated in. Going through personal things and have not been able to model much. I have managed to cross a few small items off the list though (really want to avoid "2 weeks later"). I sprayed some Tamiya burnt iron on the exhusts after doing a deep dive into some of @Troy Smith's work. I like the result and might just add some lighter exhaust stains to the two rear outlets. A few weeks ago I knocked the rudder off, which snapped the locating pins. Yesterday i decided to fix it, again thanks to Troy for documenting his technique of drilling out new holes and making some pins ( i used gun barrels). Also painted and fit the gas cap as well as the aerial mast. I tried to attach the Gucci string for aerial wire but my hands were too shakey... Seems like I also attached the door to the fuselage.. I went to the art supply store the other day and bought some black and burnt umber oil paints.. Might try and do some exhaust stains and gun smoke (tried gun smoke with a lead pencil last night and it looked horrible) edit: did not escape the dreaded 2 week warning…
  12. wow! This took my breath away, very insipiring work!
  13. Been struggling with some personal issues that have made modelling rather difficult. In the mean time I have aquired a few items to help with a future build. This seems to be required reading around here (budget version with part one and two).. Airscale 1/32 IP upgrade for the HK Lanc
  14. It was a great WIP to follow and your finished model is beautiful!
  15. .. Ser you have rocked my world this morning! This is a major annoyance for me
