  1. Cheers guys. I didn't encounter any issues with the build but I did decide to paint and decal the weapons as live rounds rather than drill rounds like the kit suggests.
  2. Finished this morning, Airfix 1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer S.2B Painted using Gunze Sangyo, Tamiya and Humbrol acrylics and a combination of kit and Xtradecal decals.
  3. Cheers guys. BBMF do indeed have a couple of chippies but are only really used for training the BBMF pilots on tail wheel aircraft, scouting new venues and a taxi service for pilots and spares.
  4. Cheers guys. Only the Hawk T.1 remains in service unfortunately.
  5. Cheers guys. The first pic is of course the all 9 real aircraft on an unknown airfield and the inspiration for the build. I currently don't have a similar backdrop for my project but may look at replicating that too in the not too distant future.
  6. About 10 years ago I came across a picture I saw a lot of in my youth as an Air Cadet. I decided it would make a great project one day and set about sourcing the 1/72 scale kits to complete the task. It took a while but with a little help from a couple of friends, I managed to get hold of all but one of the kits. The Jetstream. I had got hold of the old Airfix one but could never manage to find the conversion set. Lucky for me A Model released a kit of the Jetstream T.1 back in 2018 and managed to get hold of one. Now I just needed the time to do it. 2020, Lockdown. I was furloughed in the first few days and suddenly found myself with some time on my hands and so the build began. After 18 months of on and off building, the project is now complete. The 1/72 Chipmunk T.10, Hawk T.1, Jet Provost T.5, Dominie T.1, Gazelle HT.3, Bulldog T.1 and Tucano T.1 are all from Airfix. The Wessex is the Italeri 1/72 H-34 kit with the Heritage Aviation HC.2 conversion set. The Jetstream T.1 is the A Model kit with Xtradecal decals. Paints used were Humbrol, Tamiya, Gunze Sangyo (Mr. Color) and Xtracrylix acrylics Enjoy.
  7. Finished the second model for my RAF training aircraft build. Airfix 1/72 DeHavilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk T.10. Built out of the box with a couple of mods done with plastic card and brass tubing (exhaust pipe, anti- spin strakes and blade aerial). Painted with a mix of Tamiya, Gunze and Humbrol acrylics.
