  1. Lovely job. Really like the chipping and worn effects and such a great paint job too.
  2. Superb Transall and the base sets it off nicely. Disappointing to hear of the fit issues, puts me off starting mine! Howard
  3. Uwe, You can buy the wet transfer sheet directly from HGW. You don’t need to be a bunny
  4. I’ve worked in the logistics industry virtually all my working life. Started off as a truck driver and worked my way up to senior management, currently based at a car factory in the Midlands. I also joined the British Army as a reservist in 1978 and then left in the mid 80s. Enlisted in the RAF Reserve in 2004 as a RAF Regiment Gunner. Served in Afghanistan before sacking it off a couple of years ago due to being an old knacker.
  5. Great subject and a nice start
  6. Both guns are available, the B.L. 5.5” Mk 3 is available from Accurate Armour as a resin kit: https://accurate-armour.com/aa-products/135th-complete-kits The Oto Melara was known as the L5 Pack Howitzer in British service and the only model I am aware of is from Mouse House Enterprises in Australia. Again, it’s resin and looks like a nice kit but is an eye watering AUS$85 : http://www.mheaust.com.au/MHE/Resin/OZA/L5. Im not aware of any gun crews in post war uniform but Bronco make a 25 pdr crew in battle dress which may be a starting point. Hope that helps Howard
  7. Neil, what a fantastic result! Knowing how much work has gone into this and the superb finish, this is my favourite for 2018. You have done a good job of the heavy staining on the wings, so often missed from models. Congratulations and well done! H
  8. Good afternoon to you all, hope you've all had a good Christmas! I thought I would share my latest builds that were finished yesterday. Earlier in the year I picked up this for a good price and felt the need to build them straight away: Both went together without any effort. They were both OOB builds and the only deviation I made was to leave the nose caps off the fuselage until after painting was finished in order that I could pop the exhausts in at the end rather than having to do a lot of masking. Mr Paint was used for the RLM 78 and 79 with all other colours being Tamiya. A Mig blue grey wash was used over the 78 and Tamiya brown panel line wash over the 79. Here is the first one; Bf 109F-4/Trop 4./JG27 El Gazala, Libya 1941 And if your eyes aren't bleeding, here's the other one: Bf 109G-2/Trop 1./JG 77 Bir-el-Abd, Egypt 1942 Look forward to your comments as always and here's wishing you all a wonderful New Year! Howard
  9. Build it! Biplanes aren’t my thing but built the Swordfish I and II and enjoyed the experience. Does the kit include the parts for the wheeled version? If so, there are aftermarket decals available. Howard
  10. OKish of sorts. The G-2 is built and I started painting however it wasn’t going the way I wanted..it’s now stripped back to bare plastic and about to get another primer coat. The F-4 is about 30% built. Might stick some photos up on a mini WIP That paint work of yours looks really classy, difficult to make single color schemes interesting without becoming unrealistic but I think you’ve nailed this one
  11. Kurt, Looks superb as always. You’ve got some nice subtle variations in tone there which really adds interest to the model. When did you start using AK?
  12. Superb work Elger. The upper wing surfaces are very convincing, as is the finish in general. The best Stirling in 1/72nd scale I've seen All the best Howard
  13. Interesting thread and I’ll follow along if you don’t mind. Like the way you have dealt with the navigation lights, UV glue is new to me. Must try it on my current bf109-G2 build. Regards Howard
