  1. Just a quick build of the great Starter Kit from Airfix of the de Havilland Vampire T.11, Royal New Zealand Air Force No.14 Squadron. Used the seatbelts and 'D' rings from the Eduard etch set. Alclad and Vallejo paints. Thanks for looking Kirk
  2. Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I should also add that I have cut out and repositioned the ailerons and that the rear beaching gear looks nicely in scale, but is frustratingly flimsy. I'll see if I can take some higher quality pics over the next few days as well. Cheers Kirk.
  3. Hi everyone, at last I've finished my 1/48 Catalina, it was supposed to be completed for the Lesser Built Air-Forces Group Build, but didn't quite make it!! Original thread http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234973320-norwegian-148-pby5-catalina/ . After a little research in to Norwegian Catalina use, (helped hugely by Nils ( Vingtor ), I was surprised to find a RoNAF Catalina which used my initials as it's squadron code, so, being a vain type ;-), that's the one I've finished it as. Sorry about the quality of some of the pics, it is a real struggle to take anything half de
  4. So this was the state of play at the end of the Group Build. Apologies for the awful pic quality. Cheers, Kirk
  5. Drat, deadline missed. Oh well, nearly finished, just the decals and weathering to do now. Will post the completed model photos on the Ready for Inspection page on the main aircraft section when I'm done. Thanks for dropping by and well done to everyone who finished in time. I've had a fabulous time following all the excellent and unusual models built for this Group Build. Big thanks to the hosts. Cheers Kirk.
  6. Thanks for the kind words gents. Fuselage now closed up,seams attended to. Wings reinforced and complete, also ready to paint, all transparencies masked and undercoated. This may scrape in before the deadline yet!
  7. Oh yes, Stringbag, I have been watching in awe! Such fantastic craftsmanship. Kirk.
  8. Time is racing on so I've made a start at last! This may not be quite as detailed as I originally intended, but I am conscious of the finish date fast approaching. So far I've done some basic painting and interior work along with some Eduard detailing. Another session or two should see this ready to close up and have it's tail chopped off ready for the Belcher Bits correction.
  9. Superb, many thanks Nils, just what I needed. I'm just finishing off a 1/32 Tornado at the moment, but shall be diving straight into this build very soon.
  10. The plan is to do one of these two babys. Found on Nils 'Vingtor' website http://vingtor.net/profiles_content.html The only teeny tiny snag is that I am unable to find any other views or photos of either....yet! Won't slow the build anyway tho.
  11. Hi Henrik, ah yes, I remember coming across this masterpiece a while back. Quite inspirational, bonkers and way beyond my skill, but very inspirational. Thanks Kirk
  12. So here are the bits and bobs I will be using, along with an extra Eduard etch set or two, that are still on the way to me. Cheers Kirk
  13. Thanks Cliff, I would love to do a Danish one as well. I've seen the Cosford example and have it filled in my virtual ' to be built soonish file'!
  14. I would love to join in too. Am already going to build a Norwegian Catalina for the lesser built air force's group build and still have at least 15 or so suitable kits and markings. May do something Danish seeing as my better half is!
