  1. I'm trying to remember how I did it, but plenty of non fogging super glue came into it. Just found some old photos. I joined fusalage, masked inside and out on glass and painted interior. Then glued each half on in turn getting as best a fit as I could. Some trimming was required to get a good fit. Plenty of test fitting needed. Don't forget to take the interior masking off lower down that is hard to reach before glueing. That caused me some head scrathing Tim
  2. This is the Bandai 1/72 B-Wing. Built from the box and added the lighting unit for the engines (at £2.50 from HK it was not a hard desision). The paints I used were mixed so they "looked about right". The photos make them look a little darker than reality. A fun build. Tim
  3. The only thing not in the kit is the external gun camera. Everything else as at it comes in the box. Tim
  4. It’s Edwards attempt to show where the yellow ring that is seen on the first spitfires was painted over. I um’ed and ar’ed if to use them. It would be better to use a slightly different shade of paint to show this than the decals. Live and learn. Tim
  5. So here is my attempt at Eduards early Spitfire MKI. I wanted to cram as many early features onto the kit as I could. So - 2 blade prop; flash suppressors on guns; external gun camera; "ring pull" entry door opener; no cover over fuel tank behind the engine; un-armoured wind screen; ring/bead gun sight; flat canopy; pole aerial; parachute guard on fin. Probably others. Kit went together beautifully, only my ham-fistedness getting in the way. I modified the decals to PM-H rather than M. I had a profile from an old(!) copy of SAM (yes, I know, probably should not have trusted a
  6. Some good shots here - https://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/lightning/walkaround.php An of course on our very own site - Tim
  7. Go with the strawberry and cream mate. you know it makes sence Tim
  8. Is it me being stupid (quiet at the back!) or does KH-T have the invasion stripes on one side of the fuselage, but not the other? Tim
  9. The black is Alcad black primer. to lazy to paint things twice Besides it not quite totally black, so looks a better that really black paint (if you see what I mean). The brown is good old Humbrol 29 and the green is from the Colourcoats range. WWII Dark Green I think . Tim
  10. Thats good. Damn it, makes me want to do one. its not like I don't have anyything else in the stash to do .................................... Tim
  11. With a bit of effort I've pushed this one through the finishing gate. Need to make a simple base so I can add the figures properly. Went to the trouble of paining them, so may as well. This the Airfix kit with the CMK Wellington figures and Techmod decals. I replaced the gun barrels with some metal Master versions (rather nice). The bomb bay was filled with some extra 500lbers from the Whitley kit and some resin SBC from Belcher Bits. The decals were lovely and thin, but oh so brittle. Spent ages carefully putting them back together and patching up the gaps with (almost) match
  12. Glad this one is back on track. But its never 4 years since you started this, I won't beleive it. Tim
  13. Me, Impatient? how dare you sir! Just get on with it. Thank Gill for me for her kind offer (you could learn a thing or two..........), but I'm not sure there are enough turnips aboard for a true Baldrick. Tim
