  1. Very nice. See you have a few more of the Bandai SW mech - lovely crisp mouldings, ain't they! Am currently planning the colour scheme on their tangerine-sized Death Star II...

    bf109d a Tiger Models conversion

    Love em. Looks like a collaboration between Willy Messerschmitt and Oliver Postgate. Looking forward to the G6...
  3. Best I've seen. You've cost me money... over to ebay this minute to buy one! Thanks for sharing, fantastic modelling.

    Ye Olde Airfix Spitfyre MkIX 72nd Scale

    I actually sighed out loud looking at this! Lovely to see this classic / relic treated to a meticulous build. Gorgeous.

    Frogfix Jaguar

    Excellent - having seen the exhibition - and echoing the sentiments expressed here entirely - I was thinking of exactly the same project. Now I'm *definitely* going to do it! Thanks for sharing.

    Imperial Battlestar Galactica ?

    Thanks for the interest chaps! Comments gratefully noted. I'm planning on trying out some tinted varnish approaches on some scrap AFV bodies painted pale grey; if any of these experiments looks successful I might just give it a go... will post pics in due course. d
  10. Hmm. I've been umm-ing and aah-ing about this one for a while now, so thought I'd stick it on here to see if anybody had any views on it. I've not gone with the kit instructions on this one (evidently) as far as the colour scheme goes, trying my old layered drybrushing / washes rigmarole to see if I could get close to the look of the cgi, but I have a sneaking feeling it looks a bit like a refugee from the Star Wars universe – not a bad thing in itself, but woefully un-canon! True, the camera flash has made it look lighter and whiter than it is in real life, but I think it still might be a tad pale. I'm toying with the idea of giving it another coat of silvery-tinted varnish. Good idea? Bad idea? I've left the front probulon thingy off as at some point the model's going to go in the post, and that'll go for a burton for certain. Other than that, oob, (Revell boxing) and had great fun building it, despite the obvious bloopers (Don't look too closely at the alignment of the sidepod interior decals, inter alia) Thanks for looking, dave.

    Finemolds Y-Wing

    Crikey! That's a very fine y-wing. Cracking photography, too.

    Pietenpol Air Camper in 1/72

    Absolutely beautiful build. Lovely livery, too!
  13. Wow! Fantastic build, one of my favourite of the old Frog kits. Great that it was a family collaboration as well. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Anybody bagged Cameroon / Cameroun yet? Am thinking of submitting one of their Alpha Jets in the wraparound earth / sand scheme, chosen for the entirely unfrivolous reason that I think that the roundel is one of the coolest ones on the Zotz Africa set. And there are a lot of very cool roundels in that set...
  15. Gorgeous model, fascinating machine - thanks for sharing!
