  1. Great work, hard to believe its a Mach 2 kit, great colour scheme
  2. Great looking O Boat, loved my time on these Dolphin 38 = Diesel Boats Forever
  3. The Observers windows are included, with inserts for the civil versions
  4. Its not a simple throw together kit, the wing halves need a lot of thinning down and there is a fairly large gap between the wing to fuselage join, lots of sanding needed on the mating surfaces , the decals are tricky once you lay them down they are pretty hard to move if they are not in the correct position and you definately need to shorten the wing walkway markings to make them more manageable but if you have any experience with limited run kits you should be fine and probably make a better effort than I managed.

  5. Inspired by my trip to the Yeovilton Air Day in 2018 this is my latest attempt the 1/72 Sova M Dassault Falcon 50 Surmar, typical short run kit lots of filling, the interior is bare except for the cockpit so I scratchbuilt the area around the observers positions to fill the area around the observation windows, the rest of the windows were blanked off as these aircraft seem to fly with blinds drawn down alot of the time. The surface detail is very nice and the decals are very thin which means the walkway lines on the wings are best cut to shorter lengths to prevent them folding over on themselves.

  6. I'm not an airliner man myself but that is some incredible work, very nice
  7. I served on Trenchant during this trial, we were used as we getting near to our refit period and all the tiles had been removed from the aft end of the boat so they could paint it I think the blue was sourced from a local DIY store and the grey came from a Type 23 that was in the dockyard at the time. The trial was carried out as submarines were carrying out more ops in the Med and Gulf, but unfortunately the trial was carried out in the North Atlantic which meant we stuck out like a sore thumb Torbay was painted in a very dark plum colour. there were a couple of variations the blue was over painted in grey and then black as you can see from the picture it weathered quite badly. trencpay by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr
  8. Yes on completion of trials and workup she is destined to go to the Falklands late 2019 to replace Clyde which will then be paid off and is going to be sold to the Brazilian Navy
