  1. For the radar and the squiggle camo alone I am in awe. It almost takes some effort to look past that and see the quality of build underneath. Excellent!
  2. Astounding build. Looks like it just needs some fuel to go!
  3. It's very easy to get hung up on the differences between FG.1 and FGR.2, and as you pointed out the Nav's forward facing periscope wasn't there. But none of that should take anything away from your build, which looks good. I love the presentation and as you rightly say there is a long tradition of mutual respect between all Naval Aviators and especially between the USN/USMC and the FAA. If you were ever to do another F-4K (FG.1) then the following should be observed: Slotted Stabilators. Cat hooks. Nose leg tilted slightly aft, only a degree or so but it
  4. I love that it's always so hard to build a 'standard' anything! Watching with interest.
  5. Thanks! The Pprune thread is quite handbaggy. I have the Airscale Vulcan decal sheet and it allows you to make almost any Anti-Flash White B2, I was thinking 83 Squadron Blue Steel or maybe a 617 Squadron Blue Steel as per the old tool boxing. But will have to choose carefully so I don't end up with something inaccurate like my Victor B.2R.
  6. Hi Adam, didn't you have a handy spreadsheet for which engine / intake / exhaust / airframe combination worked? Posting it here or linking to it would be most useful. Just don't call them B,.2A! Vulcan B2A - Olympus 301 or Blue Steel [Archive] - PPRuNe Forums
  7. That looks gorgeous. Not so much a 'what if' but 'what should have been'! I particularly like the colour variation over the engines. Nice touch.
  8. Boards of Canada, Dayvan Cowboy. Thoroughly addictive and the video added to this by a fan is stunning. Please give it a listen.
  9. Work has been manic and I'd like to apologise to the group builds I have missed in the last few months. However, I can attend this one and have the Eduard 1:48 Profipack 109E and a Weekend Edition G. I'll be along shortly!
  10. Looks good! I have 2 of the re-issue and am planning to built G-BSST and the BOAC schemes. I got my decals from F-DCAL but if it looks as good as this I'll be happy!
  11. Thanks chaps. G-BSST and a Negus scheme sheet ordered for my 2 Concordes.
  12. Does anyone know of plans for aftermarket 001 or 002 decals? I just bought 2 kits in the hope they have!
  13. 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.
  14. Lovely build and bookmarked as a reference for when I do mine!
  15. 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.
  16. Should display it as a 'dogfight double' with the Iron Maiden Spitfire from Revell! Nice work.
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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
