  1. Really, really nice. Super paint work and weathering.
  2. I have no idea what may have gone wrong with your model, I love xtradecals. Only the ultra close-up photos show the problem, the models look fabulous.
  3. Beautiful; if you're allowed to call a beast of a muscle car beautiful.
  4. Unfortunately I can't see any of the Casimages photo links.
  5. Now then, where was I? Ah yes, I was buiding the Rolls before getting distracted by other models; wasn't I. Did I really last post something on this build back in February? Sheesh.
  6. C-5M Super Galaxy 83-1285 over Devon, out of Fairford heading west at 28,000 ft.
  7. We strive to produce works of art, and yet we are our own worst critics. There is nothing to fault with your build.
  8. Mmmmm... looks like a Whirlwind to me. Looks like an excellent Whirlwind to me actually.
  9. Yep, and you have done a great job. Maybe practice does make perfect, but you have done pretty well there for a 'starter'.
  10. Very, very nice indeed. Very, very nice.
  11. KP 1/72 Mig-12MF with Ethiopian markings. Wip here:

    1/72 KP Mig-21 MF with Pavla resin cockpit and vac canopy. The resin cockpit required much modification to get it to fit and the canopy doesn't fit (neither did the original) so has been cut and posed open. Decals from Berna Decals Africans (sic) Mig-21 Part 1.

    A big 'thank you' to @Corsairfoxfouruncle for the guidance on thinning Tamiya Acrylics for freehanding camo. I have used the advice on a subsequent build. Practice still required, but it gave me a solid start point. Work has been going on but I haven't posted much recently. Gloss (Mr Color GX112 UV Cut Gloss) and decals applied.
  14. Complete with executive manager on his 9am cruise to the office. Brilliant (as usual from you Mat).
  15. I like that. At 1/48 scale the detail you have managed to incorporate with your painting is amazing.
  16. GRIM99, US Air Force E-4B (The Doomsday Plane) heading west passed over mid-Devon at approx 2240hrs this evening at just over 30,000ft after leaving Mildenhall.
  17. Nope... man wins. Maybe I'll build my old Testors '71 after all, though there's no chance it'll look anywhere near as good as your model. What a paint-job. Magic.
  18. 1/43 scale? Wow. Let me say that again - wow.
  19. As they say in Yorkshire (apparently) - that'll do.
  20. This kit was my very first attempt a a 1/48 model, waaay back in the '70s. It was a massive fail, and put me off 1/48th for life - I generally model aircraft in the one true scale now. That you have finished it as well as you have is amazing.
  21. Just a very gentle warning - returning to modelling is not a cheap mid-life crisis. Shading, washes, masking, varnish, silvering and what more all come at a price these days. That said, it is a much healthier and slightly cheaper mid-life crisis that a sports car, speedboat or a mistress - and the fun lasts longer! Welcome.
