  1. That is a stunner, really like a PR Mosquito and this one ticks all of the boxes. Now I've got to go off and get some of those engines. Only other comment, it needs a bigger hanger, that one's a bit tight. Pete
  2. That's a really great looking model and like the scheme too, may have to add those decals to my pile. Pete
  3. Lovely build Paul and, as you say, it really is a pleasurable kit to build. The only thing stopping me picking up another is the big backlog of Spitfire kits that I’ve still got to build. Pete
  4. Thank you so much for the lovely comments and ‘likes’ that this build has received, very much appreciated. Pete
  5. Thank you to everybody who has taken time to comment or ‘like’ this build, it really is much appreciated. Pete.
  6. Really good so far and looking forward to seeing the markings going on.
  7. Very graceful looking aircraft and your model captures it perfectly Hubert, lovely build and finish. Pete
  8. Second one finished today and another Airfix 1/48th Spitfire, this time the Mk.XIV. I really am pleased to have one of these in my collection and I enjoyed building it but it just needs a lot of TLC to get a pleasing result. The fit wasn't very good in a few places and it takes time to get it right but it's such a beautiful mark of Spitfire that it's worth the effort. I added the Yahu Instrument panel, Eduard etched belts and the Eduard exhausts along with Xtradecal markings. Painting was achieved with Vallejo/Xtracrylix paints, glossed with future and then all matted down at the end with Xtracrylix matt varnish. On with the picture and, as always, comments welcomed. Pete
  9. First one of the year for me and the start of a few Spitfire builds in progress. This is the Airfix 1/48th Spitfire Mk.XII which is a bit of a clunker in places but, with a bit of effort, turns out well. I took the advice from a previous build that I'd seen on BM and made some changes ( thinned wing trailing edges, thinned propeller blades, removed main undercarriage link arms - not present on wartime Mk.XII, hollowed out the exhausts). I also added an Eduard Cockpit Etch set, Master Model Barrels, Ultracast Wheels and a Rob Taurus vacuum canopy for the main hood (this was meant for the Eduard Mk.IX but fitted nicely and looks a whole lot better than the Airfix part) Painting was done with a combination Montex masks and Vallejo/Xtracrylix paints. All glossed with Future before matting down again with Xtracrylix matt varnish. Weather was kept fairly light but done using Flory models dark dirt and various washes. All in all one of the most enjoyable builds that I've done in along time, really re-discovered the fun of modelling with this one. Onto the pictures and, as usual, comments are welcomed. Pete
  10. Love the scheme, finish is top drawer and who could fail to appreciate the beauty of a Hunter. Pete
  11. What's not to like about a PR Spitfire. Great job Jim and inspiring me to get on with my one. Pete
  12. Looks good and I quite fancy this conversion set too. my guess - all of the stencil data? Pete
  13. Got this one on my list to build and hope it turns out as good as this, very nice. Pete
  14. Very nicely finished Seafire. This kit gets a bit of flak but builds up nicely and yours is no exception. Pete
  15. They both look superb and a great testament to your ability at final finishing of a model. I get too impatient and just want to get it on the shelf and start another but these show what patience can get you. Pete
