  1. Immaculately built and finished (and photographed). Great work.

    That's a really impressive (and realistic) NMF.

    Tupolev G-1 USSR N-292 MikroMir 1\72

    Unique, and very nicely done. How was the Mikro-Mir kit to build?
  5. Although I remember my first kit – the old tool Airfix 1/72 Mossie – it's long gone and there's no photographic evidence. The earliest model that I have a record of is this Revell 1/72 Spad XIII, built in 1977 at age 17. It looks like I replaced the struts with stretched sprue, although I don't actually remember that. I do remember the paint job though; painstakingly drawing the checkered outlines with a Rapidograph technical pen, then filling in each black square with a fine brush. I also painted the roundels as I didn't have any decals in the correct style. I wish I still had this for nostalgia's sake. Favourite? That's a difficult one, but it's probably this 1/48 Monogram B-17G, which was built in 2004. Apart from re-scribing it I added resin wheels, lots of photo-etch inside and vac-form clear parts. I custom made the decals too. Although I'd do it differently now it still brings me joy, although I didn't always feel that way during the build... Theoretically my last build should be my best, but it's not (by a long shot). I think this Eduard 1/72 Bf 110 is, mostly because it's such a lovely kit to start with and I was quite happy with the painting and weathering. It's got Brassin resin wheels and gun-nose.
