  1. Bienvenu / Welcome to Britmodeller Fabrice ! Gary
  2. For me, this is THE best finished and painted version of this outstanding kit I have seen built so far....It just oozes class! Gary
  3. A first class build of an equally first class kit - what's not to like ! Gary
  4. I have noticed a decline in QC with Xtra-decals too although more with adhesion qualities that actual printing issues and people I have spoken with on this subject have said the same. I used one of their 1/48 sets (48-158) on an Airfix 1/48 Meteor kit about a year ago and the decals whilst printed fine, just would not snuggle down no matter how many times I hit it with SOL and then even tried DACO . Quite amazingly, the next day one of the wing roundels actually just 'fell off' still complete and one of the serials also came away when I touched it. Those that stayed on just sat there as though pasted to the surface and there was no attempt at all to sit in panel lines or conform around curves etc. Given they were printed by Microscale, I was somewhat amazed as also last year I used a set of AOA decals also printed by Microscale Industries for a 1/32 F4J and those were amongst, if not 'the' very best AM decals I have ever used. Maybe Hannants have theirs done at a lower price than small run companies and so accordingly, QC, adhesives or inks etc used by the producer are of a lower standard? Irrespective and in fairness, Hannants have a superb after-sales service so give them a call and see what they say. Gary
  5. Brilliant finish and presentation; the NMF is particularly deserving of praise. Gary
  6. One of if not 'the' most realistic (and not 'artistic') low-vis finishes I have ever seen on an F-14 model. Superb work and build. Gary
  7. Excellent build and in my favourite F-4 markings of any variant .....MORE PHOTOS NEEDED! Gary
  8. Not many NMF models could stand scrutiny with such close up pictures but yours does. A lovely build and a great finished model. Well done mate. Gary
  9. Still nothing - just greyed out 'No Entry' signs. Gary
  10. Absolutely marvellous and the weathering and wear is very realistic and not 'artistic'...love it! Gary
  11. Just ordered one - great price and a great bloke to deal with! Gary
  12. That;s a tremendous build and finish and what an original and different paint job - I love it! Gary
  13. Cracking models of great kits. The subtle red primer for the bolt on armour plates takes these to the next level. Great stuff! Gary
  14. Tremendous model. Personally, I think the new tool Eduard 'Profi Pack' 1/48 109, 190 (new tool) and P-51 kits are about the best VFM available at the moment. They represent a complete package in the box. Gary
  15. Absolutely tremendous model and the photography is equally as impressive. Gary
