  1. There's something about that USCG scheme - love it. Pity about the decals but you're doing a super job all the same. Dermot

    Dermot's Brushpainted 2018

    Hi all and great to look back at 2018 and the bits of plastic I stuck together, whether for Group Builds here or elsewhere, or just for fun. All are 1/72 unless noted. As I'm slowly getting into airbrushing, all of these are brush painted, except for any white finishes which are a rattle can with brush finish on top. First finish was a Revell Albatross in January for the Flying Boat GB here.

Keep on sticking for 2019 and yes, will fire up the airbrush (and build some newer kits) All the best, Dermot
  4. Beautiful plumage on that one Dermot
  5. Anyone got advice for this Vacform Virgin on cutting the parts out? Wings or anything with a straight-ish edge is ok but for the more complex shapes I'm a bit stumped... Also - is Rareplanes plastic normally so tough? Seems to take forever to get through it to a point where i can gently snap the excess off... Many thanks in advance. Dermot
  6. Super pics @Max Headroom thanks very much for sharing! Cheers, Dermot
  7. Hi all and my final forgot-to-post-build-from-2018! This was my entry in a Civil GB over on the IPMS Ireland page in memory of a member & friend, Don Whitaker who passed away last year - Don built superb, award-winning airliners from the Golden Age of Aviation and was a gent. My contribution was an old Airfix A-26 Invader built as a Lynch Air Tanker from the movie 'Always'. Not my best and messed up with the nose art references but enjoyed building it and got a Bronze for her in our annual show. Build thread is here if you're interested. Thanks for looking!

  8. Finally, a photo of me 'bits and pieces to keep Pat happy! Have already outlined all the parts with a felt tip pen.

    Very nice work on that one John - have built it myself so know how difficult those decals are! Turned out great. Dermot

  12. Hi all and forgot about posting this one here from earlier in the year. Built for the Carriers GB here on Britmodeller.
