  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Glad this one is back on track. But its never 4 years since you started this, I won't beleive it. Tim
  6. 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
  7. Pass on my birthday congrats. something to say you have survived another year especially as it 2020! Tim
  8. Modelling? I was going to ask the moderators to move this to a chat room Tim
  9. The instructions do need a second look when you think you know what goes where may be, may be.................. don't get me drooling at the idea take it slowly with lots of test fitting, re-read the instaructions and it hopefully it won't be as bad ad I seem to be making out Tim
  10. Normally I go the masochistic route and use strips of masking tape, but in this case the eduard set probably saved my sanity (whats left of it) Tim
  11. You know how it is when you get a kit that just fights you till the end, well this is one of those. I had reasons for getting this done besides having it next to my Whitley and Wellington (that is being worked on next). Originally this was to be the Valom boxing. That got so far, but I messed up the wing joints and the legendary fit of the clear parts defeated me (even tried the Airfix and falcon versions to see if some combination would work). Then the AZ version with new clear parts came into my possession . This time it would work! There would be no duff wing/fuselage joint
  12. Hi all, Managed to finish this off finally. Failed to keep up to date with the build log in the WIP area. Oh well, next time. Pretty much as it come out the box. Well apart from the Xtradecals markings for an early bomber version; the Brengun Vickers VGO gun; Eduard seat belts. Think that was it. Oh, and the Eduard masking set (inside and out!) that was fun. No issues with the build. Lots of detail that will never be seen again. Shame. The black is Alclad primer, good old Humbrol 29 for the dark earth and Colour coats dark green (lovely stuff).
  13. Well this shows my inablility to keep up with the progress of my builds. The build is now done, but I will get the camera out and take a few shots for the RFI, but here are a couple of shots for now Tim
