  1. Nice! And I like that mighty Tomcat in the background
  2. Nice! Very well done. Working on my RIAT17 Flanker for almost three years finally almost finished. Just some details to go. Digital Flankers are definitely not a walk in the park.
  3. 2019 was a marginal year. only two models were finished. With still three models on the bench. First was Mackenzie's Hurricane. Depicting his crash on 7 October 1940 after the destruction of a Me 109. Second was the new Revell Beaufighter I built for the Dutch IPMS magazine.
  4. Nice! And yes, we can never have enough Tomcats!!
  5. Lovely! We can never have enough Tomcats.
  6. You are right dogsbody. Revell's instruction weren't that clear in a few cases and due to the deadline there wasn't time either to do all the research. But, I can fix this one anyway!
  7. Here is the latest Revell Bristol Beaufighter TF.X. I built this kit for a review in the Dutch IPMS magazine. It was built straight out of the box, except for the Eduard seatbelts. Actually, it is a pretty good kit. Only some minor fitting issues, a very fragile landing gear and the instructions leave you with some guess work. Hope you like.
  8. Thanks for the feedback Troy Smith. Once again for me, there can never be enough research. I was aware of the Rotol blades, but not of specific composition of them.
  9. On 7th October 1940 Pilot Officer Ken Mackenzie was chasing a damaged Messerschmitt Bf 109 over the south coast. Having used up all his ammunition, he was determined not to let the Luftwaffe fighter limp back to France, only to threaten his RAF comrades another day. Maneuvering his Hurricane close to the low flying 109, he used his wing tip to sever the port stabilizer of the Messerschmitt, sending it spinning into the sea and taking the outer section of his own wing with it. He was then set upon by two more 109s and sustaining damage to his Hurricane, just managed to avoid cliffs near Folkestone and belly land his fighter in the first field he saw. For this historic event I used the Airfix scale 1/48 Hurricane Mk.I, the one with the actual maneuvre on the box art. The kit itself is a real joy to built. Hope you like.
  10. Not limited by any modelling rule More than lovely. Well done Lauren!!
  11. Thank you Dive. I don't have a build topic on the V'ger, but as I can recall, the kit is pretty straightforward. Although all the little instruments are pretty delicate, so handle with care The LVM boom isn't easy, but with some patience and following the directions it really looks amazing.
