  1. Thanks Keith, yeah they are, they definitely add to the look of the kit too and very easy to do. I probably would of liked them to be a touch thicker but thats all I had to hand.
  2. Cheers Terry, The paints used are Hataka's red line. I purchased this set.. https://www.gforcemodels.co.uk/hataka-modern-royal-air-force-paint-set-vol3-acrylic-4375-p.asp . I did have a bit of a job getting them to spray nice and didn't think I'd get the result I got but they do seem to level out quite nicely.
  3. Cheers Carl, I used Hataka's red line paints on this one. Thank you, you are going to make me blush ☺. It's all thanks to the tips and tricks I read from all of the great people on this forum. Dave.
  4. Thanks, the jig/stand was purchased from Bulldog models. See this https://www.bulldogmodels.co.uk/product/aircraft-holder/
  5. Morning All, I finished this one last week for my brother in law. He wanted a chipmunk to remind him of his days in the RAF when based at Manston. The only real slight problem I had was with the canopy even tho its supplied with a jig to build it up. I've added the hydraulic brake cables using some strands from an RJ45 cable and the decals are from xtradecal. I think its turned out OK and my brother in law was over the moon with it so thats what matters. Thanks for taking the time to look. Dave.
  6. Thank you Jabba, that didn't show up on my Google search. Very much appreciated.
  7. Morning all, I'm currently building the Hasegawa jaguar in 1/72, the problem is it doesn't come with many under wing attachments. I've managed to get what I need apart from the matra phimat chaff pod, and I'm unable to find it online to purchase and am now looking to build one from scratch. I've not done any scratch building before so hope it goes well. So the question is, does anyone know the dimensions in 1/72? Or does anyone have one spare that I could possibly purchase? Thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks guys for all your kind words, I really appreciate it.
  9. Evening all, Finished this recently and I'm pretty happy with it, The kit goes together really well and is painted in Tamiya acrylics, apart from the nose and inner gear doors which are painted with Humbrol acrylic. Built oob apart from home made tamiya tape seat belts. Hope you like it. Thanks Dave.
  10. Elo, I finished this a few weeks ago but haven't had a chance to post it. The kit went together quite well but I don't think it was designed to be posed in flight as it still has a flattened rear tyre! I could of probably sorted it but I'm too lazy. There seems to be an issue with the canopies on this kit as the front windscreen has a circular piece cut out of it right in the middle where it joins to the sprue tree, luckily its on the frame and is fixable but only just. I say this as I broke one in half and had to get Airfix to send me a replacement that had the exact same issue. I might of just been unlucky but anyway, here it is, its painted in Vallejo's Air war Luftwaffe set of paints. https://flic.kr/p/2kZ3Za1 https://flic.kr/p/2kZ3YHp https://flic.kr/p/2kZ3YHE https://flic.kr/p/2kZcZXy https://flic.kr/p/2kZ3YLk https://flic.kr/p/2kZbwnz https://flic.kr/p/2kZcZYf Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
  11. Thanks. Some aren't, I've only used AK's Xtreme metals and the Tamiya rattle can for this one and I can say that the Tamiya easier to handle after being applied. The AK on onother build I done melted under the heat of my finger tips after 3 days drying time.
  12. Hi, hope you are all well. I'm here this time with the 1/72 Vampire. This was painted with Tamiya TS12 bare metal and picked out some of the panels in citadels runethang steel but the 2 colours are very similar and don't really show much of a contrast between them in the pics. The decals are from xtradecal. Well there it is, and thanks for taking a look. Dave.
  13. Thanks @Andy Evans. The stand is from https://www.bulldogmodels.co.uk/, if you use micro set/sol then they also have a stand for those which is great as I've pretty much emptied a bottle by knocking it over countless times before purchasing one. Dave.
  14. Yes, there does seem to be an error on that, so I just did what I thought looked ok.
