  1. Just catching up with this one…what a cracking build Andrew.
  2. Bonjour mes amis! Hello Friends! So I'm in with this French Navy rotor in centenary scheme for the Aeronavale Dream Model Dauphin_Box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Kit contents Dream Model Dauphin_Sprue_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Nice recessed details and correct large tail unlike the Matchbox Dauphin... Dream Model Dauphin_Sprue_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Resin nose, bits and small P/E sheet Dream Model Dauphin_Sprue_3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Clear parts Dream Model Dauphin_Sprue_4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Simple two-sided instruction sheet.. Dream Model Dauphin_instructions by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And three decal schemes - a regular two-tone helo, a two-tone with tail & fuselage art and the all black box scheme with tricoleur tail which I'll do. Dream Model Dauphin_decals_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream Model Dauphin_decals_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr I've built this kit before but as an earlier AS-356 Dauphin II and it's a little gem.. Dream Model_Irish_Air_Corps_SA365_Dauphin (2) rs by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dream Model_Irish_Air_Corps_SA365_Dauphin (3) rs by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Enjoy your builds and happy modelling! Cheers, Dermot
  3. I did but no joy there unfortunately. Thanks Alyn, will do that - thank you very much. Der
  4. Wow...thanks for all the feedback and sources lads, most appreciated. Dermot
  5. Nice one @davecov, will try that route! Cheers, Dermot
  6. Witchcraft! Stunning finish on such a small kit Dermot
  7. Hi all, Anyone know of aftermarket turrets for the Airfix RAF rescue launch? Have been offered the kit for sale but it has no clear parts sprue. I'm not skilled enough to go the vac-forming route so any advice appreciated! Thanks in advance, Dermot
  8. What an incredible story of bravery and heroism, thanks for sharing that Tony. Wonderful build in tribute to the crew, fair play to you. All the best, Dermot
  9. So myself and @Jasonb13 were planning a dual-build of Hobby Boss Rafale's....but then I spotted this in the stash Dream Model Dauphin_Box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Sorry Jason, you'll be flying solo (for now)
  10. I think this looks great Jason and love the variations in the grey - very subtle. Decals and wash will really make it pop. Dermot
  11. And on to paint on the main fuselage..this is Tamiya Light Green. It's a bit patchy which was exactly the look I was going for. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint5 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Masked and then the other side hit with a red/oange acrylic mix. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Here's the fuselage - my masking was just slightly off so it's not quite dead even along the length. Oh well Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint7 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And with the wings dry-fitted. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint8 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr I also started on a movie camera for the tail as this will be modelled in flight. Just made from random bits of sprue, etc. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint9 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr As ever, thanks for looking! All the best, Dermot
  12. Thank you Tony and @Grey Beema is spot on - there's a Spitfire and Buchon currently in production too! So on to painting.. Airfix B-25J_Masking by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr As mentioned before, the fit of the wings is quite tidy so decided to paint them separately. Colours are all Tamiya - Flat White, Flat Black and Lemon Yellow Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Moment of truth... Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Some bits to tidy up but mostly happy with that. From what I've read, this B-25 was painted quite quickly so can't imagine it was neat and tidy. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And as a little thought to the recently departed Nigel Heath, I had some carrot cake and a cup of tea to reward myself. Airfix B-25J_Camera_Ship_paint1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking, take care and happy modelling. Dermot
  13. As promised. To be honest, I'm a little bit excited about that PBY... Revell B-24 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Revell F-111 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Revell Cousteau PBY by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  14. Thanks everyone. Yes, Brian - it's a dog alright!
  15. Some more work this weekend! In the end, I've decided to try and mod the solid machine gun nose... Airfix_B-25J_wip_14 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Airfix_B-25J_wip_15 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And in place on the airframe. The fuselage appears a shade too narrow for the nose so a bit of sanding needed. I also sanded down the armoured plates under the cockpit. And while I know the upper turret wasn't fitted, I've decided to fit the kit parts anyway; it was wrecking my head trying to plug the hole.. Airfix_B-25J_wip_17 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr On to paint! I've never pre-shaded a kit before so thought I would give it a try on this. After primer, everything got sprayed with Flat White followed by Flat Black. The wings turned out better than the fuselage but I learned a lot which was the point of the whole exercise. Will know better for the next time! I'm not sure how much of this will be visible on the final paint job but will see. Airfix_B-25J_wip_18 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The wing fit is quite good so will mask and paint the wings separately from the mains fuselage. Cheers, Dermot
