  1. Great job love the setting. But bit concerned how she got blew onto her back!..marauding low level attackers no doubt! Fantastic model Russ thanks for sharing
  2. Love it ...what happened to the airmen? Already rescued?
  3. Nice to see a model not looking like it's been in service since WW1 That's not to say that some of the ultra realistic models on here are not skilfully crafted, as is yours BTW, just that sometimes it's nice to see a just as it looked a few weeks/ months after delivery.......just my opinion. After seeing yours dug mine out of the loft insulation that is my stash and Inspired to try and get a similar result. Kind Regards Piggy
  4. Very nice job indeed. I found the same as you all imperfections have to be sorted first and extra,extra care taken not to blemish the finish as you rightly point out there are no quick repair cover ups. But on a positive note I have noticed that it (BMF) actually improved my modest skills by teaching me to be more methodical and careful at all stages of the subsequent builds, whether BMF or otherwise. Onwards and upwards Kind Regards Piggy
  5. Well done that manI had trouble recognising either that time in the morning
  6. Has anyone seen this yet.? CGI fest, loosely based on the exploits of 303 Sqn during the BofB. My opinion...great premise for a film, just a bit lacking in the script. Plenty of CGI Hurricanes tangling with the Luftwaffe, some of the flight dynamics are a little far fetched, a bit like a console game. But credit to the film makers for presenting a very important part of the RAF victory, the sacrifice made by Polish pilots. There will be more knowledgeable people here who can comment on historical accuracy (not to sure about uniforms!) Not a great film but a good watch never the less. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7515456
  7. Very inspiring ! Makes me want to chuck mine in the bin I can honestly say it's the best example of any kit I've seen here for ages. ( no offence to any contributer). Thanks for sharing
  8. Very well done, I did one not so long ago, all the junk that hangs off em did my head in but I see you had the patience to make yours look great
  9. Nice ..you have inspired my next purchase, great model
  10. I'm appreciative of the not over done weathering which can get out of hand sometimes. Lovely model
  11. Very unusual ..made me seek more info. Great presentation and beautifully crafted
  12. So roym would you say it was an enjoyable relaxing build then!!
  13. Here we go.... Halfords Rattle can lacquer. Straight from the can. One very light mist coat. Dry with hair dryer followed by second v.light mist 12 -18 inches from surface. Leave overnight in warm place taped to a flat surface. Use decal as normal. Here's the science ... Because it is now covered with a waterproof surface the decal can be difficult to settle. Whip out the dryer again and gently heat the decal and the lacquer to soften it. The decal will conform and to help it you can smooth it with either a well soaked cotton bud or flat brush with clean water. The decal will be a little thicker but It is not noticeable. IMHO Oops forgot to mention you have to trim the decal to the edge of the carrier shape ( or closer) if you get my drift
