    Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang

    Hi James. The silver is Tamiya AS-12 decanted. The yellow is a mix of Gunde RLM yellow and standard yellow.
  2. Just finished. Extras were Ultracast seat and exhausts, True Details wheels, Master gun barrels and Aeromaster decals. Nice old kit that still goes together well. Enjoy!
  3. Finished back in April. OOB with exception of the decals from tally Ho. Enjoy!

    ICM 1/48 Ju-88's

    So ICM have done a batch of A models and are starting C models I believe. Has there been any indication that they'll do G models in the near future? Thanks

    FAA Golden age photo's.

    Looks like a stack were taken on an Australian trip. I see Sydney, Fremantle and I believe the entrance to Jervis Bay all there. Great pics!
  6. No replies for a British aircraft
  7. Just finished. Absolute dog of a kit, not too sure if it was me or the kit, maybe a bad run, but it fought me all the way. Poor fit in many places including the radiator, wings to fuselage and cockpit pieces. I was very close to giving it up at many times but I'm happy in the long run I didn't. Build OOB with the exception of a QB seat and True Details wheels. Thanks for looking.

    Airfix 1/48 P-51D Mustang question

    Hi all, Can someone please tell me if the rear view mirror that sits atop the fwd canopy piece is present in the kit? The part is not shown in the instructions as both versions don’t have it fitted but I thought it may still be on a sprue but not identified. Thanks in advance.
  9. Finished a few weeks ago after a six month effort. Only additions on what is a lovely kit were Eduard etch ejection seat pull handles and mirrors, and QB pitot probe and ejection seats. I also used Furball decals which went on really well. Build is long but trouble free, just watch the windscreen portion connection to the fuselage and the front undercarriage leg. Here's the pics, please comment and provide feedback if you wish.

    Airfix 1/48 Hurricane Mk.1

    Thanks guys, Troy, the prop looked the right one from the Iliad decals so went with it, and I did find a pic on the net I recall of the aircraft in this scheme, will go searching again soon.
  11. Finished a while back. New tool Airfix kit that is pretty good to put together, only a few small thi ha that I reckon were more my doing than the kit. Built OOB with the exception of the Iliad decals and an Eduard etch seatbelt. Enjoy!
  12. Just finished after a number of months of working on it off and on. The kit is the old ESCI kit but still goes together well. Detail is lacking in areas such as the cockpit and undercarriage bays, so I added a Pavla resin cockpit. Engraved lines are inconsistent and soft and I had to rescribe many of them. I used Tamiya, Gunze and Alclad paints and added subtle weathering using pastels. I have owned the Kitty Hawk offering but sold it after looking at the crazy parts breakdown. I guess the moral of the story is to use the old ESCI kit if you are happy to add a few extras, it will surely build more easily. If you are a high detail modeller go with Kitty Hawk. Here are the pics, comments welcome.

    Thanks everyone. And Simon, the exhaust stains were done with black pastels. Thanks again.
