  1. Thanks for the kind comments Guys and sorry for my pitifully slow reply!! I can definitely recommend the kit for anyone wanting to give it a go, its the usual Tamiya great fit and whilst some of the decals are large they really did work well and had enough thickness in them to correct their positioning before the microsol took hold, it was quite satisfying seeing the whole kit come to life as the decals went on the plain white shell I look forwards to seeing yours in RFI Kevlar The Zero paints are really nice to work with and coverage is the best of any whi
  2. Thanks guys The decalling was definitely the bit I was dreading on this as some of them are quite large and tricky to get in position before they grab and don't want to move further, particularly the big gold splash on the rear as theres quite a few thin bits of splash that make the whole thing harder to position. But thankfully they werent too bad in the end so well done Tamiya for that! Cheers, Stu
  3. Amazing build mate, the conversion looks flawless and both your choice of wraparound camo and doing the twin seater are spot on, she is one beautiful looking machine. If you can get a result like this from the old Airfix kit I can't see why anyone would want to attempt the KH one, Cheers, Stu
  4. Hi all, Latest build for me and first completed of this year. I'm normally a builder of winged things but this is my third Tamiya car kit (1:24 DTM Calibra and 1:20 F189 previously) and they are quite addictive This is actually the second build of a kit for a colleague who likes the finished product but isn't yet ready to cross the line into the world of building and painting so hoping maybe third time lucky for him! The kit itself was a joy to build, with a nicely detailed engine bay out of the box, this took about half the build time itself and does look
  5. Looking really nice mate, love the wraparound camo and the conversion is looking seamless. Good job on scratching the decals together, they certainly all look the part!
  6. Stunning build, paint and weathering mate, very realistic - looks like you could jump right in and fly her! Interesting to read up a bit on the ASAT as well, I had never heard of this before, that must have been one hell of a flight to launch it
  7. Cracking build mate, lovely paint job and restrained in scale weathering Always liked the look of Foxy Killer and its on my to do list, if it turns out half as well as yours I'll be well happy!
  8. Thanks for all the kind comments guys, glad I finally got it finished and posted Thanks Joachim - I know the matchbox boxing.artwork you mention I'm glad you noticed the front opening on the exhaust sheaths, I completely forgot to add that to the list of tweaky bits in my main post! Thanks again all and have a great weekend!
  9. Hi all, This is my latest completion, finally off the bench and gotten some photos taken to share here This is the newish mould Airfix kit, picked up for a bargain £8 a few years back after a stop in at a Toymaster shop I saw on a drive through Blackpool. Loved the box art and always wanted to have a go at a Jg.27 E-7 with desert blotchy camouflage. There's nothing I can add about the kit that hasn't already been said here but it was a nice easy stress free build. I decided to correct a few of the weaker parts of the kit, replaced the gun barrels with some
  10. That does look beautiful and thanks for the heads up on the Mr Paint Silver, definitely going to have to try that. Really like the shading you have got along the panel lines as well, its a lovely subtly worn look, what did you use, oils? Cheers, Stu
  11. Both look absolutely stunning Duncan, not yet got a 1:48 Mustang in the stash and wasn't sure whose kit to go for with so many decent offerings but I think you have just made up my mind, Mr Eduard should give you a commission
  12. Thanks for the heads up I will definitely look out for that documentary I grew up in Melbourn in the 80s and 90s so Royston was my local town and Bassingbourn just a couple of villages away. Always keen to do something with a local connection, got a Fowlmere based 19 sqn spitfire on the to do list for the same reason Sorry Woody, not meaning to hijack your brilliant thread!
  13. Great work Werdna, love these late war schemes and need to get one of these in my collection
  14. Thats the difficulty with weathering, when to stop Sure the real things were caked in mud but I think less is more just to create the illusion of wear, tear and muck without overpowering the model and I think you have nailed it! It certainly makes me want to have a go at a 48 scale fort, always been tempted by a YB-40, though something from Bassingbourn feels fitting as its only a couple of villages away from where I grew up. So whats next?
  15. Amazing work Woody, loved watching this one come together. The weathering looks absolutely in scale and really adds depth to a superb model. Hats off to you!
