  1. My contribution to this group build and the first one at BM, there's a time for everything. It's the Mirage IV, not the only one in the field, in the most recent re box. The decals from the kit are nicely printed and in register, however they will not be used. Instead I will be using Syhart's decals from a 2005 special retirement livery. So, if someone needs a set, I can supply... The Kit is nicely molded with exception of the nuke (which I won't use) and the pilots. I am considering a wheels up version so I need to think what to do with the pilots (improve or replace). De
  2. I had a look at the bottle and it is called Plastic Weld from E.M.A. Model Supplies: it is supposed to weld Styrene, Butyrate, ABS, Acrylic and Perspex. The safety warnings on label are impressive though but I am satisfied with it. Hope it helps (and no, I have no ties to the company). Cheers, Rob
  3. I will join, I need to add two green noses to my collection. Rob
  4. Like you I have regularly problems with Tamiya thin. Some plastics just don't seem to react to it. I have switched to another solvent now (can't call it glue) which basically always work. I will post the name when I am back home. Love those Heller classic cars, looking forward to this build. Rob
  5. The bubonic plague may be actually the least of his problems. Nevertheless you are doing a great job on this kit. I have looked at mine a few times and quietly put it back. Maybe your build gives me inspiration. Rob
  6. I would be interested although the kit would have to be announced early enough so I can obtain it... Saves me making the choice. Rob
  7. hmmmm, I might join with the flying meat chopper known as Fokker XIII. I think dutch markings are the only ones available for that one...I don't see it build otherwise, some short shot parts will need to be scratched or repaired though. Rob
  8. Like you Heather, it is not so much the fear of rigging but aligning all the struts and wings! Nevertheless I have plenty of bi planes stashed away. Maybe I will build a large scale one. Count me in. Rob
  9. I just checked the stash and there are some interesting French cars to be found. I will join, the hard part will be which one. In stash: Citroën 15 V, Delahaye 135, Bugatti T50, Bugatti T41 Royale Coupé Napoleon, Alpine A110. Choices, choices Rob
  10. This sounds really nice, I still have a Mirage IV in the stash with very cool aftermarket decals. I will join the fun! Regards Rob
  11. Amazing build, it really comes alive with all the little details. I find it hard to believe that it is in essence a plastic build. True craftmanship
  12. Still a wonderful result, this one is on my to build list too as an easy built; I might reconsider the easy part ...
  13. That looks pretty amazing, I am really surprised how smooth it came out! Just primer and paint, or was there more to it? Really little cool thing, something to be proud of
  14. Nice work restoring and improving this vintage model! I love what you did to the exhaust, all in styrene I guess? Cheers, Rob
  15. I can see them now and it was worth the wait! and for a second model it looks great!
  16. Wonderful model, for some reason one of favorite seaplanes. You have done a great job because I initially thought it was 1:48... I am still hoping for a re-issue of the 48 scale kit...
  17. Nope, Google pictures perhaps and pictures not shared publicly?
  18. the link works, the embedded picture not so much. Exciting build though, I love the old monogram kits.
  19. excellent model, I have one in the stash but if I get within 50 % of yours I'd be happy. I love the look of the plane, too bad no one has made a more modern kit. I started one when I lived in Holland but it didn't survive the many moves since then. Tempted to kick this one off...
  20. Fabulous, you have created exactly the feel of the movie. Your skill and eye for detail is amazing! How long did this project take? Rob
  21. Super creation, the diorama really finishes it off! Congrats
  22. Great! Another build of an airplane from a romantic era. Since i have a couple of kits from the same period I'll be following this closely and meanwhile being hugely entertained Rob
  23. Simply stunning, I am in awe of your skills. What I really appreciate is how you share your wealth of knowledge with the rest of us. Thank you and congratulations with the result! Rob
