  1. Hi all, Quick update on the scratch built hatches collected from the etch spares box.. Nearly there with hinges and clasps as you can see the poor quality from the kit.. Updates soon.. Happy modelling
  2. Hi all,  Quick update ...ive been busy with the ammo lockers ( not finished yet) and dry fitting some scratch built hatches and done some more work on the torpedo tubes...the hatches will eventually match in with the coastal craft deck grey... Thanks ..  
  3. Thanks for the comments so far guys.. J.L
  4. Hi all, I've been really busy away from the forum for a while... on with this for about 18 months now and moving house inbetween, so a new workspace had to be built in the new house before the build could proceed!! NOW ITS ONWARDS!! The wheel house is totally scratchbuilt and and the horrible origional kit deck was all flattened with a Dremel and started up over.. A mix of scratch building and aftermarket parts are still to be done as you can see.. Things still to do include, new mast, hatches, ammo lockers, twin Vickers, ropes, stantions, vents, cowels, cleats etc.. Research for my Vosper 73" 380 (1944 Thornycroft) was taken from the net, various books including osprey publishing and many trips to Telford for inspiration lol All comments welcome and I'll post more pics very soon as the build continues..!!! HAPPY MODELLING!!

  5. Hi thanks guys, HAMP man I have used the exact same guns from part....I haven't built them them yet but they look really nice. And hi simon those turnbuckles are scratch built from very fine 0.5/6 mm tubing from Albion Alloys. This project nearly made a maiden flight across my kitchen a few times as well .....!!!!
  6. Hi Guys, Just to update you on the latest work on my little camel ......Hope to have this one finished within the next week just the tail rigging, rest of the decals, weathering left to do. Also I have some lovely turned brass WWI Vickers machine guns to build to finish it off !!!!
  7. Thanks Mike!! I shall definately check those out. Joe.
  8. Hi guys, Does anyone know where I can purchase some brass/photo-etched aftermarket 1/48 scale WW1 British vickers aircraft machine guns for my Eduard Sopwith camel weekend edition'. The ones in the kit are rubbish and I dont want to use them. Thanks Joe...
  9. Here I have been putting the finishing touches to the camel interior, wiring, engine and side panels wood effect before the fuselase halfs come together. The seatbelts were made with lead foil and turned fuse wire for the buckles.....
  10. Nice job graham. . If you look at my earlier posts of this build you will see my engine work completed I just need to apply the alclad on the copper ring and exhausts, gonna be tricky but yours looks fab bud !!
  11. Thanks Graham!! Yeah this kit has had its moments!! Wing struts next then an oil wash then rigging !!
  12. Here I prepared by rubbing down with wet n dry (fine!) and the a primer coat of Alclad II primer/filler, then a coat of alclad II semi gloss black and finished with a couple of coats of Alclad II airframe aluminium!
