  1. This is cool - such a great idea! Dermot
  2. Right so - will be in with an Airfix Kaman SH-2 Seasprite and Italeri AH-6 with a twist Cheers, Dermot
  3. Great stuff - another of those kits that takes me right back to Christmas morning and opening presents under the tree!
  4. Wow....almost fell off the couch thinking that's 1/48! One of the best I've seen. What did you use for the riveting? All the best with the results. Dermot
  5. Thanks Paul...hope the following explains things...was my first time trying this so a bit hit and miss! Model was airbrushed using 'soft' masks, Glossed, decaled and glossed again.

Cheers, Dermot
  6. Just finished this old girl for the 'A kit you built as a kid' Group Build here. If you haven't seen it, it's a great plastic-filled nostalgia trip of kits we built when we were younger. Along with Spitfires, Hurricanes & 109s (and the odd bomber), the Hellcat was one of those kits I slapped together at the kitchen table many years ago. If you're interested, the build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Airfix 02023 1/72 Grumman Hellcat F6F-3. First release 1967, this is the 1995 boxing Build: Mostly OOB with tape for seatbelts and some plastic boxes in the cockpit. Sanded down all the rivets! Paint: Revell Acrylics with airbrush. Klear, Flory Models Wash. 4B pencil and pastels. W&N Matt Varnish Decals: From the kit, all seven of them! Marking are for Lt James Flatley, Commander Air Group (CAG) of Air Group 5 USS Yorktown, August 1943. Yes, the gun barrels are missing and hopefully to be replaced with some Albion Alloy this week. The weathering is probably not to everyone's tastes but I wanted to try out a heavily-weathered Pacific veteran. I'm happy how the weathering worked and like how the three colour scheme blended together.

So had a bit of fun and photographed it with an F-14D 'Bullet 100' of VF-2 (Revell kit). Grumman Fighters by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking, keep building models and stay safe. Cheers, Dermot
  7. Hi all and what a great GB! Thanks @Dansk for the idea and all the great builds. Here's mine, Airfix 1/72 Hellcat. The build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Airfix 02023 1/72 Grumman Hellcat F6F-3. First release 1967 (1995 boxing) Build: Mostly OOB with tape for seatbelts and some plastic boxes in the cockpit. Sanded down the rivets! Paint: Revell Acrylics with airbrush. Klear, Flory Models Wash. 4B pencil and pastels. W&N Matt Varnish Decals: From the kit for Lt James Flatley, Commander Air Group (CAG) of Air Group 5 USS Yorktown, August 1943.

  8. Thanks everyone. With some final weathering with pastels, a matt coat and the last bits added, she's done. This Hellcat has clearly had a hard life and the weathering might not suit all tastes! But I wanted to see what effects I could get with pencil and pastels and am happy how the three colours blended together. Airfix Hellcat_fuselage_10 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Still have to replace the gun barrels with some Albion Alloys tubing, hopefully the postman delivers next week. Airfix Hellcat_fuselage_11 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr I think it cleans up nicely for a kit dating back to 1967. Airfix Hellcat_fuselage_14 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for all the comments and to Craig, Glynn and Paul for hosting what was a great nostalgia trip, loving your builds on this one! Stay safe and take care. Dermot
  9. So here's the saucer halves primed in Black. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_hull_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And made a start on the small part of the interior which is given. Again, just blown away by the detail moulded by Bandai. Bandai_Solo_Falcon_internal_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr More tomorrow! Dermot
  10. Wow, those are great improvements Mark, love it. Look forward to the next update. Dermot
