  1. 2nd of the mojo restorers just finished. Straight forward, no nonsense OOB build. Only addition were some basic Tamiya tape belts. Hand brushed with Revell aquacolours (y) (And yes, I KNOW Airfix forgot the rear view mirror. If I do another, I'll add one )
  2. Been a while since I've posted a build on here. Not through lack of activity, hut everything I've done recently has gone horribly wrong for one reason or another. So, in an effort to stop my mojo completely disappearing I needed a couple of quick no nonsense builds. And this was one of them. Just a straight forward OOB build, with no bells and whistles. And I'm glad I did. What a great kit. Certainly the best Airfix moulding I've built so far. Only addition was some basic Tamiya tape belts. Hand brushed with Revell aquacolours (y)
  3. Appreciate the kind comments. Ta very much peeps (y)
  4. And another recent build. Airfix 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109E-1. Again hand brushed with Revell Aquacolours and finished with a spray of Humbrol Mattcote. 3rd of these Airfix Emils I've done now. Perhaps not the most refined kit of this old bird on the market, but a helluva lot of fun to build (y)
  5. Thanks. It's ICM plastic, so a little on the soft side. But it goes together almost flawlessly. I'll be getting a couple more, for sure (y)
  6. Another recent finish. Hobbyboss 1/72 Eurocopter Tiger UHT. Nice kit, although the pit is rather basic. Hand brushed with Revell Aquacolours and finished with a spray of Humbrol Mattcote (y)
  7. Just finished this little fella. Revell's re-pop of the ICM 1/72 Polikarpov I-153 Chaika. Lovely little kit. Hand brushed with Revell Aquacolours and finished with a spray of Humbrol Mattcote (y)
  8. I use Mig enamel washes. Damn good stuff (y)
  9. Thanks for the comments peeps. Very very much appreciated (y)
  10. Airfix 1/72 Harrier Gr.1. What a fun wee kit this is! Went together with no fuss whatsoever. Hand brushed with Humbrol enamels and Revell Aquacolours. Finished with a spray of Humbrol Satin Cote (y)
  11. Airfix 1/72 Supermarine Swift Fr.5. Have to say, not one of Airfix's best recent efforts. Had major problems closing up the forward fuselage and nose. Ended up having to remove quite a bit of plastic on the inside to get her to close up around the pit. Hand brushed with Humbrol enamels and Revell aquacolours, and finished off with a spray of Humbrol Satin cote (y)
  12. Thanks for all the kind comments, peeps. Mojo is fully restored now (y)
  13. Had a little trouble recently keeping the old mojo going. So did a quickie build of Airfix's wee A-4B Skyhawk to give it a kick up the proverbial! Much fun, a mojo more or less restored (y)
  14. Thanks again for the generous comments, peeps. Means a lot (y)
