  1. Great thanks for clearing up on the photos - rookie mistake! On the MAD fit, did the Dutch fly with something similar? Have seen some pics of their Lynx's with a MAD set-up...
  2. Thanks all. Just also to give a shout out to @Ex-FAAWAFU for sharing some great Lynx pics with me - thank you sir. Black primer. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_7 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then started on what was left of the nose. This is thin brass wire from an old toaster cable that was being recycled. Given that it's 1/72, I'm trying to give an impression of the damage, not match it exactly. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_8 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr The nose area was then sprayed white and the leftover was used in an attempt to add some pre-shade. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_8a by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then a light coat of Tamiya Blue XF-8 which was the closest I had. Once it gets Future and weathering, it wiill be a little darker. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_9 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr I've yet to add some boxes to the nose to replicate some internals and 'fill out' that space a bit more. More soon, thanks for looking. All the best, Dermot
  3. Thanks all and a bit more scratchbuilding bodging done.. What's left of the nose....plasticard Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_5 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And added to the front along with the windows. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will hopefully look better with some paint as well as wires added to flesh out the empty space. Cheers, Dermot
  4. Looks like it's the latter @CliffB ! Airfix_Lynx_HAS2.Wip_3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Have installed a thin bulkhead from foil and airframe structure below that from card. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr It will probably end up looking a bit rubbish...but I wanted to give it a try and tell a story at the same time. Cheers, Der
  5. Thanks Pat! So this was in my brush-painting days; the white was Halfords White Primer from a can. I used Revell Acrylic 36179 Grayish Blue for the main body. Airfix/Heller instructions say Humbrol 125 US Dark Grey for the body but for me I think it's a bit too dark, especially when you follow it with Klear & weathering. The FS number for Blue Grey is FS35237 which is Humbrol 145 Matt Medium Grey. For me, I think that's closer. I'm sure there are plenty here on the Forum with more knowledge on it - there's a good thread here on French Super E colours which might help. Look forward to your build. Cheers, Dermot
  6. So started on the cabin - light grey then masked up. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Flat black with some gaps left to mimic the cargo tie downs. The insulation on the back wall is from textured tape (not that you'll see it). Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_Wip_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Main question now is whether to build her pre May 1982 or after the raid of 25 May. All the best, Dermot
  7. Agree 100% Colin, new tool Lynx would be great! This kit was second hand so not bagged in original packaging., Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_contents by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr And separated out the internals to start on those.. Airfix_Lynx_HAS-2_contents_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Cheers, Dermot
  8. Hi all, I don't normally build AFVs but gave this one a go for the Ground Attack GB here on the forum. The build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Trumpeter 07221 AS-90 SPG Scale: 1/72 Build: Out of box Paints: Halfords plastic primer, Tamiya & Revell acrylics, Klear, Flory Models Wash, Oils, W&N Matt Varnish Extras: Value Gear Details stowage bits donated by good friend Pat. It's a super little kit packed with detail and I think the stowage really helps bring it to life. The only downside are the individual link tracks made out of some kind of soft plastic - there's not enough of them to make up two full tracks so there are gaps hidden by the side skirts. But had lots of fun and great to try out new genres that aren't planes or rotors. 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (14) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (13) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (12) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (10) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking and happy modelling. All the best, Dermot
  9. Here's mine, Trumpeter's AS-90 howitzer in 1/72. Build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Trumpeter 07221 AS-90 SPG Scale: 1/72 Build: Out of box Paints: Halfords plastic primer, Tamiya & Revell acrylics, Klear, Flory Models Wash, Oils, W&N Matt Varnish Extras: Value Gear Details stowage bits 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (9) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (8) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (14) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (10) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (12) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for looking, happy modelling. All the best, Dermot
  10. Thanks all. Tried my hand at free-hand chipping. Not my best and a little too big for this scale...but again, learned lots from it! 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Wip (14) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then some dry-brushing of the stowage and a spray of W&N Flat, and she's done! 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (16) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (18) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr 1_72_Trumpeter_AS-90_Done_ (12) by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Must admit, I enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone with some armour - the track links (not enough of them) were a pain and have hidden the gap under the side skirt. I love the stowage by ValueGear and really adds to the finish I think. Will post some more pics in the Gallery, thanks for looking and happy modelling. All the best, Dermot
  11. Sorry about that Ray …looking forward to your Gulftstream!
  12. Nice one Ray, look forward to following ! (sorry if I pinched your build) Dermot
  13. Hi all and have decided to take the plunge with this one. Airfix_Lynx_Falklands_40 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr More pics later and good luck with your builds! All the best, Dermot
  14. Sorry @S. Uehlinger - pics won't open for me either. All the best, Dermot
