  1. More done on this. All the ordnance painted, weathered and decals added where necessary: The tail sections are a slightly darker shade of grey, though it's hard to make out in the pictures. Once the final application of weathering goes on it will be nearly impossible to make out anyway. All grey bombs always seem a bit odd to me . Fuel tank with squadron mark added: Further weathering will be added to the tank when the airframe is being seen to. Ejection seat and exhausts: Front landing gear: Will hopefully get the airframe painted during the week. Dave

    Airliner desk models

    Had considered that but just want a couple of simple ones to add to the desk.

    Airliner desk models

    Hello all, Having just had a few very pleasant flights on the Boeing 777 and 787 i've thought about adding a few 1:200 diecast airliners for my workroom. I'd like a few on the display stands but know nothing about this scale or die cast models in general. Any suggestions as to which company would be the best to source these from? Cheers Dave
  4. Cheers Rich. I'm just back from Hong Kong so will hopefully get back to this once the holiday blues have worn off in a day or two
  5. More done. All the flaps and slats were added along with the pylons: A few areas just need cleaned up with the wet and dry, then it will be off for masking and paint. I'm off to Asia now for 2 weeks so will be a while before i'm back at the bench. More soon. Dave
  6. I've 4 pre-ordered on the big H, stating an August release

    Best way to get to RIAT from Bristol?

    All sorted for the trip... Fly into Bristol on the Friday night, air B&B in Tetbury, rented a car, show on Saturday, back to Belfast on Sunday. Been a few years since i've been over so i'm looking forward to it! Any tips on what time is best to arrive for car parking? I was thinking of maybe leaving Tetbury at around 0700. Dave

    Some Tornado questions

    Thanks for the info chaps, looks like I'll load my F3 with ASRAAM and Skyflash and leave off the ASRAAM for the GR4. Just need to confirm the greys now! I think I can answer that one; outer fuselage pylons and I believe the centre line pylon was removed.

    Some Tornado questions

    Hello all, I've a few questions for Tornado aficionados; 1. When did the ASRAAM become operational on the F3? 2. When was Skyflash replaced by the AIM-120 on the F3? 3. What are the correct colours for the F3? 4. For Op Shader missions, does the GR4 carry ASRAAMs for self defence? 5. Would Tamiya's XF-83 'Medium Sea Grey 2 RAF' be the correct colour for current GR4s? I had a quick search but couldn't find all the answers. Cheers Dave
  10. More done after finishing the Typhoon. The Steel Beach ECS pipes: Not as detailed as the Quickboost examples but easier to fit. Wings were added to the fuselage and the filler needed around the LEX was cleaned up: Tail fins and pylons assembled: Next up will be to add the flaps/slats etc. Dave
  11. Great artwork for the box! And Furball decals? Even better!
  12. Cheers folks, glad you like it.
