  1. Well done for sorting the canopy. There are lots of nice little touches all over the place on your model and the weathering (always a matter of personal taste) is spot on.
  2. 'I am a bit puzzled regarding the tint of the Rlm 79 which looks too orange for me' Oh no, an opening for the Great RLM Colour Debate! Alas I am an expert in nothing, except in knowing what I like; and your Emil is a model I like a lot.
  3. I never used to like the Voodoo, but models like yours are making me warm to it.
  4. That's really nice. Can't wait to see the Llanbedr drone if it's anything like as well modelled as this example.
  5. 'Those of you who like things exact look away now..' Still looking; still liking.
  6. Good afternoon All, these are the photos that are not in the Gallery. A huge thank you to everyone who watched and posted such kind comments.
  7. 1964 - Vickers VC 10. Airfix new mould 1964. VC10 certified 22 April 1964. G-ARVF flew the first crossing of the Atlantic on 8 Feb 1964, returning the next day. G-ARVF flew the last of the African Route proving flights, returning to London on 14 March 1964. 6 June 1964 at approximately 0430hrs I arrived in to the world. G-ARVF formally delivered to BOAC on 4 September 1964 (though she was originally regisetered to BOAC back on 16 January 1963 she had remained the property of Vickers up to the delivery). WIP linked here.
  8. It obviously failed to impress the dog though ...
  9. This has whizzed down the posts as I have concentrated on the VC10, but some more work has been done and the VC10 is now finished. The model is a forest of ejector pin towers, nothing new there for a short-run kit: The wings are together after the trailing edges were thinned a little on the inside of the trailing edges. Nowhere near enough really, but hey. There's a little detail added in the cockpit too as it would otherwise be bare, but I doubt much will be seen with the fuselage closed up so I haven't gone overboard: The starboard cockpit has just frames added, and instead of adding the additional fuel tank in the rear fuselage I just added a shelf behind the observer's station: The port cockpit has the throttle and the document case for the observer. The thick frames are the base for the cockpit floor, added as the moulded location points are almost non existent and all but useless.
  10. Geed evening All, well she's done. Unfortunately the artificial light is harsh and very directional, so the photos are a little unflattering. The last of the decals have been applied and the radome has had a shot of black. The airframe has had a couple of coats of Klear to seal the decals and give it a bit of a shine. The undercarriage is on and all the wheels touch the ground as was hoped. The ailerons, flaps and elevators have been outlined with AK's 'Paneliner for Grey and Blue Camouflage' which is an enamel wash. I have bought a set of these as I have struggled with the like of Flory's washes; which everyone else seems to get on with very well so it's more than likely just me. I have added small scratch aerials as the model had them moulded with the fuselage halves, at about a foot thick in scale they went straight away. I have added the two main pitot heads as well, but only the two most prominent ones under the windscreen. More photos will follow in the Gallery when I get the chance to take some in natural light. For now this will have to suffice, sorry...
  11. Oh sweet lord, the memories of a seventies kid's two wheel desires flood back. GT380, KH400, R5, YR-5 all mentioned above; all sweeet. All back in the day when an R100RS was a sports bike (!) and would smash your wallet for £2999. Will be watching this one for sure.
