    Hidden magnets - genius! Lovely build too!
  2. That's a lovely collection! Only thing I would say is that the 109 and 190 are crying out for a swastika on the tail (controversial as it may be to some these days). Just doesn't look quite right without them! Edit: PS Are you still brush painting or are some of these rattle cans / airbrush?

    Yellow nosed B.......

    And when Canfield's Spitfire turns into a Hurricane before it blows up! Great movie though - must of watched it hundreds of times when I was a kid! And a great looking Buchon too!
  4. Very nice. I just added one of these to the stash. On current build rate i should be getting round to it when the Eurofighter Typhoon is being retired!

    Airfix 1\72 Tornado Gr1

    Good job on an old kit. I've never seen a tornado with sidewinders just inboard of the wingtips - is that authentic? GJ

    RAF camouflage grey - in a rattle can

    Thanks Nigel. I had no idea that they had! When was the change over?

    RAF camouflage grey - in a rattle can

    Hmmm, I'm guessing there aren't any then!

    RAF camouflage grey - in a rattle can

    Hi All, I've just picked up a Revell Tornado F3 and was looking for some advice please. After trawling many BM threads, there are lots of discussions on this paint colour but I can't find what I am looking for! As I don't own an airbrush and as always, have very little time to do serious modelling sessions, I wanted to rattle can this one so... is there a decent colour match available in a rattle can? I can't believe Humbrol don't do their 167 in a rattle tin - would have thought it would be very popular! Many thanks, GJ
  9. Beautiful build. I remember attempting the matchbox kit as a kid and it put me off bi-planes for good!

    Airfix 1/72 Short Stirling

    Lovely job! I remember building one of these about 25 years ago. Think you've done a great job on it and it actually builds up into a very impressive model.

    EE Lightning F6

    Wow - looks absolutely amazing! Great job there...

    The airfix Buccaneer S2b

    Lovely job. I've only ever made one Bucc in my life and i seem to recall it was in 1/144 although I've no idea who the manufacturer was! I would be very proud of that build though!

    Matchbox kits...

    Not many then...

    Which WW2 aircraft would you pick?

    Hi all, Just out of idle curiosity and for a bit of fun, i thought i would pose this hypothetical question to the BMs on here...! "If you were aircrew during WW2, what aircraft type would you choose to fly/fly in and why...?" Mine would be the fighter bomber version of the Mosquito. Reasons being that it had excellent performance, better than average survivability rates and carried a navigator (my sense of direction is appalling). GJ
  15. Looks great to my eyes - if it was as much of an arm wrestle as you say then you've done an excellent job!
