  1. Yup here in south woodham ferrers too. Thought it was mod shoeburyness at first.
  2. I cut off and moved the mandibles back to make them a bit shorter , also making then toe in a bit. The jawboxes (the box like structures that run down the centre of the front of the ship were removed and made shorter and narrower. This give the whole ship the correct look of the 32" falcon. I cut out all the the notches around the edge of the hull in the armour plating. Soldering iron battle damage added too! I have been doing little bits here and there over the last few months.
  3. Cool. I have built so many of these as commissions etc. Im actually most of the way through one now thats had alot of mods. Ive corrected the jawboxes and mandibles etc and im now adding all of the tiny details. Looks like you have the revell release of the finemolds kit. For some reason the decals were about 10% smaller than they should be so they dont fit the panels. If you were thinking about using them for the colour panels all over the ship let me know and you can have mine. Mine are the correct size as its the FM kit that i have. I will use the cockpit ones but the rest i will be painti
  4. Luckily we had just got in .We had been at my mother in laws. Also luckily our house has single glazing!
  5. My Wife , Son and I were sitting here and we could hear a rumpling noise that got louder and louder , then disappeard. A couple of minutes later it came back so the Wife went to the front door to listen , then i went and straight away i knew what it was. Vulcan XL426 was doing engine runs at Southend Airport. It was incredible , we are 8 miles away as the crow flies , and you could hear it clear as day. I honestly thought it had taken off by mistake , and was going to appear over the trees. So good to hear the Vulcan howl again. Just thought i would share that!
  6. Loved battle of the planets. The Phoenix is an awesome ship desgn , love it!
  7. Superb. Love the transit , actually love it all. great job.
  8. Looks great. How is the kit? I had the mcfarlane figures one a while ago but i always fancied building this. I love Sleepy Hollow , its where i got my username from!
  9. I just got the airfix 1/48 canberra with a view to doing the grey and dayglo t4. I know that the kit has mistakes , but it will be easy enough to fit another seat alongside the pilot and add an extra control column , but how different is the nose profile compaired to the T4 please? Thanks
  10. This arrived in the post today. Lovely!
  11. I just received a Minicraft 1/72 Martin mariner from ebay , from the US. No customs either!! whoop whoop
  12. The strange thing is , when i build Sci fi kits i always build them the the landing gear up , but planes with the UC down!
