  1. Hi guys, I am currently trying to organise a campaign to save XH673. I have no experience in trying to organise this sort of move but I am trying to help in any way I can. I have contacted a number of museums to try and find her a new home. There is interest out there, problem is she has been outside for 34 years now and her condition is unknown. Best estimate I’ve had for the cost of moving her is £250000! For more info and updates search “save Handley Page Victor XH673” on Facebook. Any help or advice greatly appreciated!!! Chris
  2. Superb! I like the little details such as the pigtail leads for the RPs Chris
  3. Beautiful Spit!!!!! NMF is flawless too!!! Chris
  4. I love them all but that Aeronavalé Hellcat is stunning!!!! Chris
  5. Last of my three recent finished models is this F-16 aggressor of the US Navy from the Eduard (Kinetic) kit. Difficult kit to build but looks the part when finished! Paint job was fun to mask too! I used AK paints for this build. Thanks for looking! Chris
  6. With the arrival in the stash of the new Airfix Spitfire XIV I decided to dispose of my old and bloated Academy kit. Since I had a spare Airfix Mk.22 fuselage I decided to bash the two together and come up with this! While it has a couple of shape discrepancies (mainly around the tail) it at least looks a bit more like a Griffon Spit should!!! Thanks for looking, Chris
  7. Superb Mustang! Beautifully painted and finished. Good job with the wheel well too, I’ve done this mod and it’s tricky!! Chris
  8. Thanks for the positive feedback guys! Hi Jan, there’s a new shop that’s opened up called Otaku ME on Sheikh Zayed Road. It’s mostly Gunpla but they have a good selection of Tamiya and Hasegawa kits plus loads of paints, tools etc. including Mig and I think Vallejo too. www.otakume.com Chris
  9. Good evening all, as a long term resident of the UAE I thought it would be appropriate to build a ‘local interest’ subject. Here is my Hawker Hunter FGA.76 from Sharjah Air Base in the 1970s. It’s the Academy kit with replacement resin cockpit and wheels, Aeroclub jet pipe and aftermarket decals. Paints were mixed by eye to match photos. Hope you like it! Chris
  10. Hi Ian, I built this boxing earlier this year: Suffice to say the resin cockpit can be used however you have to raise the floor quite a bit to avoid fouling the gear bays. I shortened the sidewalls and made a new floor from plasticard, painted it black and placed the floorboards over it. Looks fine from the outside, especially as the cockpit opening is so small. I bought the Alleycat resin tail but elected not to use it as I don’t think it looks right. Using the plans from the Valiant Wings book I did a cut and shut job using plasticard. I also thinned the vertical tail as this area is way too thick on the old mould Tempest. Hope this helps! Chris
  11. Beautiful! Just bought this decal sheet, hope I can do half as good a job as you have! Chris
