  1. Pleased to show my effort at Dragon's Type 45. As with my recent T23, 1/700 is pretty small, I used the included PE & WEM/ Colourcoats paints. Seascape copied from Scale-a-ton on youtube - happy with it, but as with the weathering on the ship itself the sea is probably a bit 'overboard'. I went for 6 months in continuous North Sea, force 5 look... Weathering doesn't look as dodgy in real life - extreme close up with iphone. Any comments/ recommendations welcome.
  2. Inspired by others to post (but not nearly as good as) my effort at Trumpeter's Type 23. 1/700 is pretty small, but I reckon it looks like a Type 23. I used PE from WEM & I think the bits it came with too. Seascape copied from Scale-a-ton on youtube - happy with it, but as with the weathering on the ship itself the sea is probably a bit excessively 'foamy'. Imagine North Sea, force 5... Thanks for looking - Richard. Any comments/ recommendations welcome.
  3. Can’t see a starter handle...
  4. Is that a 144 Concorde? £30 for a gift set and no ‘V’, is it a new tool jobbie?
  5. It’s called ‘Flightdeck’ because this year’s major announcement is for a 1/350 HMS Queen Elizabeth carrier. Or so I heard...
  6. I struggle to get consistent results with superglue - maybe mine has gone off. I now use Gator Grip, which is a derived PVA with good grab. The thin version I use is quite fast drying and invisible. Not sure if can be overpainted as I can hardly see the railing let alone the glue that holds it or any paint on top of it! @Ex-FAAWAFU is an advocate for it too and I was put onto it by him in one of his builds.
  7. Hawk Graphics of Canada does great decals (D7011 RN Ensigns sheet for RFA), but I'm not sure they're still trading as my last fews emails/ order requests have not been replied to.
  8. Great seascape (I'll copy technique) & fascinating story: daddy what did you do in the war? I had the most important job on board - the Submarine Excrement Expelation Designated Specialist.
  9. Second test Edit - looks like it's up. Thanks very much @Gorby
  10. I vaguely remember that the 'V' denotes fixed wing vertical take off - like the AV-8... As opposed to rotary wing vertical take off helicopters. Poseidon I don't mind (not that's it's got anything to do with me)! But Wedgetail has to be called something new. Wasn't/ isn't the A400 called Grizzly somewhere in the world? Atlas seems more apt.
  11. I have a similar stash, except mine are "tidied away" in the loft to keep the house presentable: so I'm told by my wife. Her multitude of cheap, tacky, vacuous 10p novels are all on display though. In every room. Anyway, I'm going to build all mine. Just as soon as I stop buying new ones...
  12. With all the consternation about the 100 years, can no one see that all BA have done is added the booking & admin fees.
