  1. Excellent ! I modified a Revell 767 into a 200 series many years ago. Pleased with the result but wasn’t very happy with the engines. Looks like you’ve nailed them. mike
  2. Excellent ! Wish I could make progress like that Mike (aka the “Polystyrene Butcher“)
  3. That’s quite something Pete! Impressive build and paint finish to say the least mike
  4. Thanks Ian. To be honest, I was pretty gutted when I messed up the windows, as I wanted to use the masking experience as a test bed for BPK's 1/72 737. Knowing that I was going to have to resort to using the window decals, I ended up cutting each one out and applying them individually. (I'm sure we've all applied window decals at some stage, only to find out that they don't line up with the windows?) As for the advertising on the belly, it's there in all its glory, but I had to resort to splitting the decal in the aftermarket set in order to fit around the wheel wells :
  5. Rare beast there Keith. Very nice finish. mike
  6. Having built the S&M kit myself many years ago, I salute you. You've done a fine job there Paul mike
  7. Va-Va-Voom !!! Talk about eye-candy ! (...and for those of you who thought I was talking about anything else, you should be ashamed of yourselves. ) Seriously impressive BAC 1-11 there Dave. Really hard to believe that it's the Airfix kit. (In fact, it's hard to believe that they're the Airfix kits). Thanks for sharing. mike
  8. BPK's 1/144 Bombardier CRJ 900 finished off in the markings of the resurgent Uganda Airlines. The Airline recently bought four CRJ 900s and is expected to add two Airbus A330 NEOs at the end of 2020. Route expansion plans include direct flights to London, Accra, Johannesburg, Guangzhou and Mumbai. The kit includes a transparent fuselage, full cockpit interior, resin engine intakes and exhausts, and a small sheet of etch parts (aerials, pitots, undercarriage doors and rear fuselage strakes) - Plenty of detail to keep you occupied. I finished the kit with Gunze paints and
  9. Classic scheme and a jaw-dropping build. Boxes ticked for me! mike
  10. That’s a beaut Dave I’ve just started on my second Roden 720 and If it comes out half as nice as yours, I’ll be happy. I’m currently having a torrid time assembling the engines and I haven’t even thought about trying to attach them to the wings yet! mike
  11. Wow! Where do I get a prescription for rust? Excellent finish Great presentation Good to have you back Mike
  12. Brilliant work Pete. Having built their R-version many years ago, you've done a marvellous job. Mike
  13. Superb (...although I feel that I should be paying extra to view the pics ) mike
