  1. Thanks chaps. G-BSST and a Negus scheme sheet ordered for my 2 Concordes.
  2. Does anyone know of plans for aftermarket 001 or 002 decals? I just bought 2 kits in the hope they have!
  3. The Japanese writing on the Print Scale says 'Tofu noodles'... I admire your dedication, I think if I had had a catastrophic incident with my completed models I'd use it as an excuse to bin them and start again.
  4. Lovely build and bookmarked as a reference for when I do mine!
  5. Watching with interest. Really glad you are up and about, but take it easy! Can't afford to loose a good instructional build on this kit.
  6. Should display it as a 'dogfight double' with the Iron Maiden Spitfire from Revell! Nice work.
  7. At risk of drifting off topic I merely pointed out my own opinion, I was not implying the oft criticised representation of panel lines was wrong.
  8. Whisper this but... I quite like Airfix's panel line treatment because as an aerosol user they look ok to my eyes plus you don't need a wash to bring out the panel lining, it just is there. There is a definite school of modelling which is more interested in showing technique then reflecting reality. Even in armour modelling it's over done. I can only imagine the trouble the lineys would get in if most of the modern jets we see represented in RFI were actually presented to the Squadron Commander as serviceable!
  9. The Sea Kings have done well. Maybe a Lynx and Wessex? The 1/72 Ark Royal's Last Cruise deck wouldn't be complete without the plane guard Wessex and a couple of HU.5's.
  10. The Lincoln is an interesting aircraft, and Airfix have a proven affinity for A.V.Roe & Co. products. I think it is as likely/unlikely/obscure as the Javelin, which sold well. A lot of people will buy a kit that is fantastically engineered even if it isn't their core subject. Add into that the fact the Lincoln was used by some overseas operators and you have a sort of business case. My preference would be to see Airfix continue to put out British products that no-one else (mainstream) is doing, they are to be applauded for this. I also want to see Airf
  11. I was very annoyed that due to work I missed Fairford the last 2 years, which meant I missed probably the last time I'll see a Mig 21 (Lance R) or a SU-22 fly. I was really hoping that this year or next the last F-4's with Greece or Turkey would make it over, even just to see them fly out would be worth while but I have a horrible feeling that the cancelled shows and general financial constraints will mean that many venerable aircraft will slip from our skies without a final fling on the show circuit. Shame.
  12. Gru called, he wants his shrink ray back! Beautiful build and a finish to aspire to!
  13. A beautiful model of one of the ugliest planes ever made! I love the colour variation you achieved, you should be very proud of that indeed!
