  1. Revell, 1/600 scale from the Anniversary dual boxing. If I was doing it again, I might leave the windows out and use glazing fluid. I know there is much debate about the colour, I sprayed her grey, decided it was too dark and dusted with white to get a lighter Gray with a patchy "weathered" finish which I quite like. It looks like the Enterprise I saw on TV when I was six years old, so I am happy with it. Thanks for looking.

    Italeri C-47.70 Stormo Italy 1963.

    Just watch the wing joint, the centre flap attachment is a bit vague.

  4. Very nice. I struggled with the revell kit. I keep hoping they will produce one in 1/48 to go with the Ventura, or Airfix will do a new mould.

    1/48 Tamiya Pz.IV Ausf.J - update 18/02/19

    How are you finding the zimmerit to cut out? I have a set for the Tamiya Tiger and any tips would be welcome.

    Italeri C-47.RAF 1944.

    Check your references for the air intakes. I believe Italeri based their kit on a restoration with "civil" engines and post-war intakes.

    Some do have the cargo door. Found this when I built mine for Radial Engines Rock GB
  8. Or perhaps TIntin or Flash Gordon? It does have a classic comic book look about it.

    Revell U-Boat Class 212 A 1/144

    I was scrolling through waiting for the pictures of the model, thinking the first pictures were reference shots of the real boat....
  12. I have one on the shelf of doom. Typical A model, some soft details, fits where it touches and requires much filler.
  13. Very nice. I built the Trumpeter kit and it needed a lot of filler. It is also a bit of an odd scale, somewhwere between 1/72 and 1/48.
