  1. Hi Mike no no caravelle but would do a vc10 in this scale
  2. Hiya!..err I have not started the Haystack yet, it is a definite do one day though Hi Pete, sad but true extremely space limited now, I have to start getting rid of some models! thanks all for your comments..it is an elegant aircraft, i filled in the models over done engraved lines, it pleases my eye better that way. I have an AIM 1/72 Comet I must finish one day.. I have done all the vacuform cut ting out and prep.
  3. Hi there I have been back a couple of times, head to my photostream for the latest shots
  4. Well I could be as I have a completed fuselage but I won't be getting my bits till the "ides of march" and will depart for the UK late May... and have a few events in between and my mojo isn't what it used to be. I'll give it a shot though!
  5. Ok so who is gonna be first to finish one?
  6. hi there, its been a long time since I built that! yes home made decals for the lettering anyway..stripes were painted on To get the yellow on the decals to show up on the blue background I had to print on white decal paper, printing yellow lettering / design with blue background.. Ii was very difficult getting the printed blue to be close to the painted blue... one of the challenges of light over dark decal designing
  7. CL44 for me please Neil! saw it flying into Perth and many years later derelict at Halim Indonesia
  8. right! well I found the original drawing file: sm 55 sheet by wallycacsabre, on Flickr The brown stripes were my attempt to represent the wooden walkways. The wing top stripes are only suitable for the I-BALB machine. The registration was carried under the wing only there is you tube video of these aircraft where you can pick out the salient details. I can't remember what the circles on the sheet are for.. I didnt use them. I was a bit clever with the hull decals I painted the easy edge areas black and then applied the decals to flow into the black paintwork, leaving the top of the hull silver the decal gives you the intricate black area sans the need to mask. Modellers wishing to build other machines of the SM55 "Balbo" should note that wing stripes were only on the leader, other machines had differing numbers of circles triangles or squares to signify which flight they were in and their number within the flight. Also the hull paintwork varied widely with some having additional pin striping! registrations were I then the first 4 letters of the captains name. you will have loads of "fun" researching these if you want to make something other than I-BALB! Clarence I will send you my spares if you like I will print you an extra sheet "just in case" let me know
  9. right I am back from my road trip, I am conducting a search on my PC to see if I can find the original drawing file, I had a look in my spares box and found some left over decals ..just enough to do yours; 20190211_100951 by wallycacsabre, on Flickr pm me with your address and I'll send these on to you. If I find the original file I can make more copies if required
  10. Hi there am on a camping road trip at the moment will have a look for you next week..promise!
  11. Not my usual subject matter but I wanted one of these after seeing the Shuttleworth Collection's example fly at Old Warden, I buggered a few things up and left it in a box for a couple of years, bit the bullet and finished it in the last few days. I'll string an aerial on it in a minute...
  12. hiya paul, ya know I looked at those engines dozens of times making sure the bulge was on the bottom.. it was very hard to tell.. there is not much in it, what made it worse to determine up from down are the blue decal portions and their shape.. I have checked again.. the engines are the right way around they just look odd! When test fitting them the "other way around" they looked a lot odder than they look now! It is this decal thing that made the model a shelf of doom resident for so long, I couldnt mask and paint that scheme for the life of me! plus I needed the white registration and HS125 logo in white on the fin..had to be decal
