  1. So a quick build of this little one for a Sci Fi GB elsewhere as my original kit entry (Bandai pocket Falcon) is still somewhere on a very slow boat from the far east The kit is Revell's 1/160 Slave One and is one of their Easy Kits (Snap fit to you and me). I cut off most of those lugs and glued it. After primer from a can, it's all brush painted with Revell Acrylics. Was my first time using Maskol for the chipping effect and I think it turned out ok. Flory Models wash and some random paint effects here and there.

Revell_Slave_One_6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr A good level of detail for the price and while it's no Bandai, I had plenty of fun with it. Will try to scratch up a landing pad for it soon.

    Grumman F-14A Tomcat

    Nice one and can never have enough Tomcats! I've built that same kit (later boxing) and I think Airfix did a good job with it. (sorry for the thread creep) . by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Dermot

  5. Class, great build Angelo and i'd say that has some presence on the shelf. (Googles 'Gabrielle Drake')
  6. Just this little fella! Revell_Slave_1_box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr
  7. Thanks! Just wondering what do you use to thin them with for spraying? Getting my airbrush set up is next on my hobby to-do list

    1/72 Henschel Hs 129

    Some more done.....internal ribs for the u/c bays which won't really be seen when it's finished. Airfix Hs 129 build 5 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr So time to talk about big guns! The glorious Airfix box art has a pair of Henschel's over some battlefield, most likely Eastern Front, going all 'Brrrrrt' on a Russian Convoy in true 1970's comic book style... Airfix Hs 129 Box art by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The B-3 model had the 75mm cannon and there's a picture of it on this link. Problem is, the way Airfix has the barrel moulded, it just looks way too long. After a short while on the Inter-web searching 'Big German Guns' (mind your spelling ), I found this image and line drawing of the gun and loading mechanism. Airfix Hs 129 build 6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Using the trusty Mk1 eyeball and shaky camera technique, I offered up the gun and mounting to the drawing....Hmmm........looks a bit long Airfix Hs 129 build 7 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr But shortening the barrel by a few mm, I think that looks much more realistic. Airfix Hs 129 build 8 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr What do we think? Cheers, Dermot

    1/600 HMS Fearless

    Brilliant stuff and looking forward to seeing more of this one. That boxart is great too - the busy deck, landing craft, even the weathering on the ship itself. Dermot

    1/72 Henschel Hs 129

    Thanks very much! I try my best to update older kits where possible and it's not always the neatest! I use a scribing tool by RB Productions which I find great to use, really precise and controlled. Radu who runs the business is a top bloke and great to deal with. Hope that helps. Dermot
  12. Great build Steve and like the weathering and finish. Always good to see Irish schemes every now & then!
  13. Love it and great build, terrific. Nice to see one being built. Dermot
