  1. I thought it’d be ok but wasn’t sure. Thanks for the link, great reference material there!
  2. Hi all, I’m building the Trumpeter Fullback in 1/72. Can it be built wheels up? The instructions make no mention of a wheels up option. It’s a good kit so far, loads of stuff to hang off the wings....

    I am that brother.... looking forward to seeing your builds.

    BAE Hawk XX154

    I had a good look around the Hawk and the other exhibits at Old Sarum last week with my two children. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and they loved sitting in the cockpits. If you’ve not been you must go! The Hawk is a superb addition!
  5. That’s a stunning build. I got the same kit for Christmas and already I know mine won’t be as good as yours....
  6. I should apologise for not getting this completed in time. Life and a kitchen refit has pretty much stopped this build. I will finish it but it’ll be a while yet....
  7. @Tim Moff I’ve spent a fair amount of time with the Army both in and out of uniform. I enjoyed working with them on the whole, one or two idiots but that’s life. I always enjoyed the banter with them though. I feel your pain about RAF movers though, I spent two and a half years flying to and from Bastion and hated the lottery that was the RAF air bridge. Your Hawk is progressing very nicely by the way!
  8. Thanks Steve. I’d like to claim the credit for but photo etch makes so much difference.
  9. This a great build, I’ve got the same kit in the loft but I’m finding the expanse of red daunting! On an inter service note, how did you find working with the RAF? As an ex crab I always find the Army’s take on the RAF interesting.....
  10. Massively overdue update.... Life is getting in the way of this build. Work, family and cycling (not in that order!) is taking priority at the moment. I have made some progress though. I purchased the Eduard interior detail kit and it makes a huge difference to the kit, especially in this scale. The seatbelts need a little attention as they’re a bit too new but overall I’m happy.
  11. Didn’t fancy a flight in it? You couldn’t pay me enough to sit in the front of that....
  12. Cracking model, very subtly weathered. Chapeau!
  13. Today I was able to make some progress on the Spit. I had issues yesterday with my airbrush and had to get my old single action one out of the loft. I shall be buying a new double action one before I start spraying the camouflage! Today I sprayed the cockpit, I’ve started to weather it as well with Flory’s dark dirt wash. I’m still working on applying washes, I’ve yet to find the way that suits me. I’ve ordered an Eduard photoetch to give the ‘pit some life, I like a busy looking cockpit. Thats it for now, more next week.
  14. I’m glad I’ve started it, the Easter holidays were a long two weeks with no building! It does look like a great kit and there was no way I was going to pay for the Tamiya one! I’m not to fussed about ultimate accuracy- if it looks like a Spit I’ll be happy.
