  1. Des I used the kit decals, apart from the fin decals which I made using white Crafty computer paper (https://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/inkjet-water-slide-decal-paper/).. They were all applied with Micro Set onto the model which was sprayed with a layer of Clear. When dried applied a further layer of clear. Regards Sweaty
  2. Thanks. They were hand painted on this occasion sweaty
  3. Ben underwing markings gone already. Don’t think I’ll change the cockpit. Seem to remember it being pretty dark in the 800 or so hours I flew in the boot
  4. Lord Riot checked my source images and you are correct. I’ll remove them in due course thanks Sweaty
  5. First attempt at 1/72 in 20 years. All comments welcome As ever all comments welcome Sweaty
  6. I think the Airfix kit comes with 63 and 74 Sqn markings. I used Model Alliance decal for the 100 Sqn details. Sweaty
  7. Thanks. Mr Color gloss black. Two coats.
  8. Airfix Hawk T1a (1/48) built for a friend. Thanks for looking. All comments welcome as ever. Before she was closed up. Thanks for looking Sweaty
  9. Ben Yes had to rescribe the front fuselage and intake tops following filling and sanding of mismatched parts.
  10. Just finished Airfix Tornado F3. Challenging fit to some components. Eduard cockpit detailing helps. I thought the 67 wing was most appropriate on this 'flying' model. And one under construction Thanks for looking. Sweaty
  11. Great example of US-Z well done I wrote this a while ago for my US-Z Jumbo Gracie US-Z Flt Lt Edward J. 'Jumbo' Gracie flew with No 56 Squadron during the Battle of Britain. On the 10th of July 1940 his Hurricane was damaged in combat with some Bf 110's and he crash landed with a seized engine at Manston. He destroyed four enemy aircraft before the 8th of August 1940, and a further three before the 30th of August 1940. On the 30th of August 1940 he destroyed a Heinkel He 111 but was himself shot down at 16:45hrs, crash-landing his Hurricane I (R2689). He thought himself unhurt but next day discovered he had a broken neck, requiring admission to hospital! Gracie was awarded the D.F.C. on the 1st of October 1940. He scored six more kills flying from Malta. E.J.Gracie later flew Mosquito's on night escort for R.A.F. heavy bombers. E.J.Gracie was K.I.A. on the 15th of February 1944, aged 32.
  12. Thanks or the comments. Jasta 5 and Jasta 37. Nov 1917. Combatants of 56 Squadron. Sweaty
