    Lovely job on both of them. gazza l
  3. Excellent work, lovely looking model of a lovely aircraft. gazza l
  4. Thanks once again everyone for your kind comments. MRP paints, will definitely use again, Techmod decals probably not! Thanks bruce bay, yes she is a big bird with nearly a 14" wingspan in this scale.
  5. Sorry to disappoint! The decal I had real problems with was the port fuselage stars and bar, this not only sits on a compound curve but also a protruding air scoop. Well, good luck Steve.
  6. Thanks Mark. Yes it was a Accurate Miniature mould, there is a manufacturer's stamp moulded inside the fuselage, or was it the wing, and dated 1995 if I remember correctly. Cheers Steve. The Techmod decals were difficult to use, they seemed very brittle and took a lot of repeated soakings of Micro-set to get them to conform. In fact quite a few split and I had to touch them up with a brush. I gave up with most of the stencil data as they silvered so badly, despite going onto a nice glossy surface. All in all a bit of decal nightmare with this build! Cheers everyone, gazza l
  7. Thanks very much people, very kind words. Thanks Toryu, it is 1/48th scale and it was airbrushed.
  8. Hi everyone, This is my first completion of 2019, it's the Italeri's boxing of the Academy kit. Stunning moulding, full of interior detail and some excellent panel line and rivet detail on the external surfaces. On the down side the instructions were terrible, very vague requiring a certain amount of guesswork. Also the decals were unusable, they were very thick and did not conform so I replaced these with a Tecmod set. For this build I gave MRP acrylic paints a go and was pleasantly surprised, they sprayed excellently with a lovely smooth satin finish... I think these will be my paints of choice from now on. Any C&C welcome. Thanks for looking, gazza

  14. Excellent modelling and photography as usual Russ, but I have to say the Barracuda is one ugly, ungainly bird! gazza l
