  1. I’ll have a go, my little ones are getting into building aswell so we may do one each and start attacking the stash!
  2. Writing down jobs really works! After I posted I got the jet out and put it all together. And the other side. Now it just needs some more weathering and touch up painting and it’ll be ready to take its place in the middle of a little scene I’d like to make of it during the missile trials back in the summer of 99! With any luck I’ll get the painting finished in time for the end of this and maybe some of the tractors and trolleys to give you an idea of what the next 5 years hold for this project
  3. It’s only taken me 5 years to get round to painting them. Ended up going on a business trip with a bit of free time in a hotel and just took them and a pot of black paint, glass of wine and a good movie! Now I just need to get them attached and see how it all looks!
  4. Well, I don’t think it will get finished but the biggest hurdle has been passed with the completion of the 12 Brimstones in a lovely black and yellow flight test colour scheme. I may get the jet all loaded up in time for the end but it also needs a base with some figures and a couple of tow trucks and trolleys for the spare stores. at the beginning: at the end: a combination of much masking and hand painting with a lot of tidying up. Overall I’m happy and looking forward to finally getting the jet complete and the base started! Cheers for looking Graham
  5. Here we go, finally time to get this build finished before starting on a busy 2020! Both the glider and the Bulldog are now complete and it’s just the Harrier to finish. As can be seen the kit is virtually done and after nearly 10 years on the shelf it has naturally weathered itself. Sadly photobucket has the original pictures (yep it goes back to when they stopped us using them) but the finishing touches will be the weapons load and a base with a few vehicles and some characters. I’ll fish out the original build pics and hopefully have some more to show with the weapons load in the next week. The jet is modelled on a development jet I was lucky enough to work on, as an under graddie in 1999, doing some early Brimstone trials prior to its cancellation. More to follow soon Graham
  6. I’d join with a resin chipmunk, my first time leaving the earth in an aeroplane.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.......
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Here is the Jayhawk Paint details and the dolphin to follow
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  15. 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!
