    Very sad news, he attended our club meets regular at Thames Valley, always friendly and approachable to talk to,I also never new he was a pilot in the RAF flying Hunters
  2. Really nice model of a Lancaster, love the rivet detail, wish I had the patience to do that, I agree with other comments though as these Lancasters were fresh and clean.
  3. I use Tamiya fine white primer straight from the rattle can,it can even be decanted into a airbrush, but I also give it a polish with some polishing cloths then finish it with some gloss Tamiya paint sprayed with my airbrush
  4. Regarding the undercarriage bay, the photos I have seen, it is extremely busy with pipes, wires etc, all over the place, I did not bother with mine as life is to short LOL, but for anyone who wants to add the extra detail it would look great, although you can hardly see much of it in the end. I have stalled on mine, I just need really to get some passenger windows masks cut, the kit ones I don't like as you can barely see where to position them correctly, as I prefer Tamiya yellow stuff. I might in the end do the Mexican Airforce one
  5. My personal opinion, was that is was a well attended show considering the current situation on both days. Good 2 minute silence was observed, apart from the crying child, but that can't be helped, all in all a very good show and IPMS members and volunteers did a great job, and should be congratulated. Best in show was a deserved "War Horse"
  6. I built one of these many years ago, the Airways kit is a descent vacform, but does require some surgery to make it a little more accurate in places, but scrubs up well in the end,
  7. Very nicely done, I used to see these flying into Northolt all the time
  8. What software do you use, as I use Rhino which is OK for my purpose but I am no expert
  9. Brilliant artwork in 3D, are you going to print it yourself.
  10. Not the best photo, but is an original one taken by my mums father, I believe in the 1930's and showing the Graf Zepplin I imagine flying over somewhere in the UK, probably near London
  11. Nice show as always, never one of the busy shows, so numbers were similar to previous years I think, weather was terrible
  12. Great stuff I have acquired the Mars 2 printer, have not done anything with it apart from test pieces to get the settings correct in Chitubox. I always have found Tamiya fine grey primer works very well
  13. I grabbed the Vibrator by accident. No complaints, wanted one of these too are you sure the vibrator was for you
  14. Pete you have done a great job on the Amodel kit, you don't see many made up, but I guess they are no shake and bake kits
  15. Lovely build, you have done a great job and the finished model looks superb
  16. I don’t really like the stynelerez primer, I always use Tamiya grey fine primer
  17. I would imagine you have the famous sink mark in the centre section of the wing underneath
  18. It is a nice kit, and builds quite easily, I did not find any problems, just allow plenty of weight in the front
  19. Excellent build, really nice paint camo, these Pucaras were hastily painted over the natural metal, some still showed this more in certain areas
  20. Cheers Fritag, my eye site is not as good as it was, thats my excuse
  21. Cheers, as a Amodel kit it went together very well, although had the noted sink mark underneath that was easy to fill, the Sea Devon name I believe was given to the Navy version and is no different really than the Devon and Dove variants
  22. The Rareplanes one is still a good representation and I think has the right nose which is a little more stubby This one I built about 11 years ago now, and still my favourite model and aircraft, although I did not use the right grey as it should be a light aircraft grey
  23. I have started mine several months ago it’s not an easy kit but has lovely recessed panel lines and seems very accurate, the only draw back is the clear windows that need some work to get right
  24. I used white decal cut to thin strips, although I think they could of been a bit thinner for the frames
  25. Thanks, I should of mentioned, I used the Caracal models decal sheet Part 1, although I used some roundels from a different decal sheet, the Amodel sheet especially the ROYAL NAVY looked to big and the blue too vivid especially the roundels
