  1. I just received the civilian Gull kit and it is quite nice! Unfortunately as you’ve noted there are no color call outs, which is frustrating to say the least. I was thinking I’d do Beryl Markham’s VP-KCC, any thoughts on the blue? I initially was leaning towards a French Blue based on the box cover, but after viewing the pictures posted on their web site it seems almost a more turquoise color. I admit I haven’t done any digging yet, so I apologize if there is some discussion out there about this. Would love to hear your ideas and recommendations! Geoff
  2. Finished up the Balatan resin kit of the Lockheed Sirius "Tingmissartoq" for a group build elsewhere on the internet and thought I would share here. Well molded kit, only let down by canopy, misspelled decal and strange looking prop blades. Apologies for the dark photos! Geoff

  4. Six new Camel kits coming soon! Good thing I saved all my spare change for 20+ years! Geoff
  5. That's perfect DC! Indeed, very interesting and something I was not aware of. Thanks much! Geoff
  6. Question regarding color(or colour!) scheme of the Albacore during Operation Torch in November 1942. Looking at the DP Casper decal sheet 48007 it shows both the Albacore and Swordfish having the Dark Slate Grey/Extra Dark Sea Grey uppers, but also shows the upper surface of the lower wings to be Light Slate Grey/Dark Sea Grey. Was this standard practice or just typical of that operation? I cannot find any confirmation of this in my references and have not seen this before, so I tend to doubt the color call outs. Any thoughts or ideas, or point me in the general direction and give me a push?! Thanks much and apologies if this has been discussed already! Geoff
  7. I used paint from Vintage Racing Miniatures here in the US. I have both the Zero and Gravity paints but have not used them on anything yet. Maybe a Maserati sometime soon! I chose to model the Fangio/Moss car out of respect for Levegh. Next up is the Jaguar D-type and then the Austin Healey.
  8. 1/43 Southern Cross Miniatures 300SLR. I started this for the Le Mans group build a while back and didn't get very far, but with a little free time the last couple of weeks I've gotten close to finishing. I used Vintage Racing Miniatures old Mercedes silver laquer paint straight from the bottle, sprayed well and seems quite durable. Decals are not finished yet, chrome trim is foil. If work doesn't keep interrupting me I hope to have it finished in a couple of weeks! Cheers, Geoff
