  1. I’d join with a resin chipmunk, my first time leaving the earth in an aeroplane.
  2. Without the initial Host Rob G some of these GB would never happen, well done to your deputies for chipping in and helping out and also to you for this GB happening!
  3. Cheers Col, hopefully it’ll be the kick it needs to get interior and the canopy built so I can get it painted and then decalled up as the Bulldog I did my first solo in many years ago! Hopefully coming to a new thread soon.......
  4. Evening all, hoping to join this group build with a Scottish Aviation Bulldaog that I started years ago. It’s the heritage resin kit and it has the fuselage sides, wings and tail joined together. I know normally that may be more than 25% but is it ok to join in here and get this thing finished in the UAS scheme I first went solo in! There is nothing like a GB to get a stalled project going again. Here it is, you be the judge. Fortunately the glider is now done, the Harrier needs a base and the weapons load out, but as you see the Bulldog needs some help! Thanks for considering Graham
  5. And here it is with the rest of the SAR team. Jayhawk was sprayed with Halfords paint, appliance white and Fiat Red Orange. The dauphin was painted with Xtracolor X104 International Orange (fs 12197) Good luck!
  6. Here is the Jayhawk Paint details and the dolphin to follow
  7. Yep, I’ll post pics of it and the dolphin and I’ll fish out the colours I used for both. It took ages to get round to finishing it but just bit the bullet in the end. Relatively straight forward builds just check where the decals and the aerials go before gluing May have caught me out and required treating.
  8. Final coat of varnish and the rotors and I think I’m there

    Progress has been slowly and mainly involved sanding, however we are getting close to the priming stage. I just need to find enough time in the next day or so to get this all stuck together, primed and see how many more panel lines need scribing back in to see if it stands a chance of catching a wire in the GB Gallery. Back to the cutting mat Graham
  10. The decals were completed and gloss coat applied, couple more nights work and this one will be ready for the shelf but alas time ran out for this GB. Thanks again and see you in next years KUTA!
  11. Here she is the Academy 1:72 SB17 Rescue B17. Thank you to the Hosts and the Extension, a beautiful fleet of B17’s in this GB, I will definitely be building another!
  12. First up the scary and then rewarding weathering process Then it was just the aerials and lifeboat to attach and she was ready to rescue the stragglers Now to get a couple of good shots for the gallery! Cheers for the comments and help along the way, this has been a lot of fun
  13. Decals and props ready for varnish and some weathering....it’s going to be tight but should get it finished in time. Hopefully the next ones will be nearly finished...... I guess this variant traditionally followed behind the rest so seems apt it’s one of the last to finish. Have a good weekend Graham
  14. Long time since I posted but progress has been made. First up the wings were adjusted and attached, the seams sorted out and then the lost panel lines rescribed back in. Then the sun came out so it was time for some primer, sanding, primer and then some colour First up the yellow, then masked it and added the silver and unveiled to get my first look at what is becoming one of my favourites this year. Next up is adding the rest of the details that need painting, anti glare strips etc, the engines and the cowling, then it’ll be time for gloss and decals! . But that’ll be a job for another year! Thank you for looking, have a great New Years and I’ll see you in 2019 to finish this off! Cheers Graham
  15. Not sure if this counts but my youngest two have been wanting to build a plane with Daddy. As an average modeller I decided they should start with a Spitfire and what better than 2 stalled builds on the shelf and a mass of ruined paint that needed sorting out! So here goes, they helped glue the tails and the props together along with the canopies and then I let them pick and choose a colour scheme. So here are a couple of pics. Firstly hard at work! And the finished Spits Have to admit I really like the black and gold look. 2 Spitfires off the shelf, 2 happy little people and one is very keen to build another! Thanks for looking, hope you enjoyed the break from the norm! all the best Graham and his ab initio modellers
