    i think that is absolutely fantastic..that is ART!
  2. Hi there, I don't get back to my workbench in OZ until mid October, if you can wait that long I'll be in with my only and recently acquired Frog Spawn Comet 1/100 1/96? kit. cheers wally
  3. At 66, I find that I have been wallowing in nostalgia for a few years now.. modeling and aviation hobbywise at least, if I could share one of those "moments"... I was 17-ish, mad keen on aviation and regularly posted letters to aircraft manufacturers requesting pictures. Those were the days I got loads of the stuff, all of it gone in all my moves through life..except one, this one I kept all these years: Then much later, I learnt how to make my own decals and for years then sought the rare and long out of production Aurora kit (it came in two scales this is the larger one about 1/60 from memory). I then found a kit but also managed to get a "junker" a veritable glue bomb that had been put together using military grade nuclear cement, my attempts to dismantle for a rebuild were almost terminal but I persisted on and off for a couple of years. Now this rebuild is very ordinary, full of flaws and scars, the only modelling of any merit maybe are the home made decals but nevertheless, I still like it, it sit in my cabinet proud as punch I excuse all it's faults it is special to me for those that are interested the model was modified with a new nose and repositioned maingear to get this trigear super H18 version. I did this one as "proof of concept" besides wanting to resurrect the old junker.. I may now do the same conversion on my "mint" kit, scratch building an undercarriage for a wheels down model...maybe, maybe not
  4. Hi all, I am an aircraft guy but these appeared in my viewfinder a few years ago (I dont even know what they are!), I thought I'd share them with you rather than them hiding in my computer filing system unseen. Hope they are of interest and of use to you in your modelling, cheers wally

    SM55X I-BALB (1/72 Delta 2 Kit)

    hello there, it has been a while since I finished that model, but I am pretty sure the black decal designs were drawn in a free program called" inkscape". it is a program you have to play around with to dis cover what you can do with it. I am pretty sure I have some left over decals back at home but I will be in the uk for another couple of months, i will look for them when i get back and will get in touch with you cheers wally

    Yeovilton Air Day 2018

    As most Britmodellers would know, has been sunny and hot in the UK for 3 weeks now, grass looks as parched as it is in Oz! Yeovilton is a bugger of a place for photography, the sun is in the wrong place and makes for challenging selection of camera settings.. also close to the ground shots suffered from heat haze / distortion!... got a few reasonable shots though, a selection posted here many more in the photostream. I have seen this manouvre done a dozen times, it still amazes me it is a gravity defying feat. Obviously fast jet aircrew.... plus many more in the photostream.
  10. I just keep going back.. the Thunderbolt was the icing on the cake, never seen one before, enjoy these pics and all the others I have put up on the photostream, cheers wal

    Airways Vacform Britannia - need help

    Hiya Tony, Built one a while back..build progress here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015778-bristol-britannia-vacform-subject-name-change/&tab=comments#comment-2613778 You do have to account for the wing taper, a lot of trial and error cutting fettling and filling is required to get the nacelles in the right spanwise location, in the correct alignment fore and aft as well as up and down, the wing "holes" may have to be oversized to allow placement without distorting the quite flexible vacuform piece when sliding the items onto the wing all the best with your build, it is the best vacuform I have ever played with cheers wally
