  1. Yes and that linked photo is taken from the wrong angle to show the true contours of the front of that cannon blister. What’s shown on the sprue shots on the previous page look nothing like I’ve ever seen, the fronts of the new kits blisters being quite square and not curved enough / at all. Airfix have hired a young chap by the name of Luke as their dedicated researcher to (among other things) iron out some of these small issues that have been creeping into their later kit mouldings. Hopefully he is also a member of BM and can share some thoughts with us here. No one forking out 100 pounds wants to spend another ten on a resin correction set. I’m hoping Airfix issue a corrected sprue for their Mosquito XVI gaffs, but doubt we’ll ever see one in time. Cheers.. Dave
  2. As mentioned above, I don’t recall seeing any Spitfire with those square fronted wide cannon blister panels. I would be happy for someone to confirm / deny these ever existed and am hoping this is not another ‘scanned’ error from a restored example. Cheers.. Dave (who’s hoping I’m wrong).
  3. I was gonna say “photos or it never happened”, however I think you’ve more than made up for it in these last few posts. Certainly something not exactly common, however that’s what probably made this whole project so appealing. Keep going (and sanding!!). Cheers.. Dave
  4. Beautifully finished and presented. This completed Morris, Gun and Jeep kit now completes at least one example of Matchbox's Orange range AFV kits within this GB gallery. Well done you and to all that have contributed. Cheers and well modelled.. Dave
  5. Well done Dave, this clean and crisp build looks really wonderful and is an excellent and fitting conclusion to your terrific input into this Matchbox Group Build. Thanks for your great participation and support over the last few months which has enabled us to tick off a number of Matchbox kits that I had thought would never see the light of day. Cheers and regards.. Dave
  6. Just getting back to this thread so apologies for these late comments. This Corvette looks so good in those painted colours and it will be so impressive once finished. Although still keen to acquire one of these, I somehow think I lack the stamina required to see it through to any conclusion. Your efforts are to be most certainly rewarded. Cheers.. Dave
  7. Just catching up on this great thread again and there’s some excellent progress going on. Your Phantom and all those home brew resin bits are just fantastic. Great work! Cheers.. Dave
  8. Well yes and no. At my current bench time average, it will probably take me another six months to complete my builds, but seriously I think its time to wrap up this grand show and move on to other things. Cheers.. Dave
  9. OMG - how did I ever miss updating that superb build? I’ll see to it once I get back onto the desktop later today. Sincere apologies Heather. Six months should do it Pat…. We could make it the marvellous year of Matchbox (….. I can’t believe I’ve just said that)! Cheers.. Dave
  10. Wow…. Has to be the holy grail of Matchbox GB kits! So good to see this great kit of this great rider on here. I’m really happy you’ve managed to find one and bring it along to this huge party. We all wish you the best of luck. Cheers.. Dave
  11. Right then, the build list has been updated to the best of my ability, There's probably a few gaps and errors, however I'll give it a good going over closer to the end of this GB. Cheers.. Dave.
  12. Apologies for missing these last few updates Erik, this F-5 is really coming along nicely. Cheers.. Dave
  13. Wow.. this B-25 is looking great too. Can’t wait to see the rest. Cheers.. Dave
  14. All looking really nice, keep going you’re doing a great job if this kit. Cheers.. Dave
  15. Good to see these back Ray. You’ll get there, we all know it. Cheers.. Dave
  16. Well done Enzo, that Matchbox Tempest turned out great and I agree, it can still be built to please many people (like Al on here!). Cheers and we’ll modelled.. Dave
  17. All good mate, there are times where we could all do with buying a few kilograms of ‘mojo’. Whoever can unlock that (legally) will live happily ever after. Cheers.. Dave
  18. Now that looks really lovely. Well done, great progress pics. Cheers.. Dave
  19. Just jaw dropping Steve, both are bloody beautiful! It’s amazing to think that for a long time during this GB, you were chasing an example of this kit, now you’ve managed to complete two kits well within the GB finish date. I’m in absolute awe of your modelling abilities. Both 109’s are 100% top shelfers… very well done. Cheers.. Dave
  20. All good Cliff and sincere apologies to all for my long absence. I won’t bore you with the details, however life’s been quite busy, but do apologise to all (especially Pat) for my lack of updates. I do plan to get this back on track as early as tonight (my time) so please bare with me until I find the time to sort things out. The amount of excellent activity within this GB has been truly amazing and it’s incredible to see so many superbly finished models in the gallery. You have all done a tremendous job and are a huge credit to this remarkable Britmodeller community. Well done everyone. Cheers.. Dave
  21. Good to see this thread up and running and I’m not surprised it’s taken something as quirky as this to get your modelling mojo running. Having seen some small progress photos, I can vouch to the others that work is well and truly underway. Looks interesting and quite good! Cheers and best of luck with how far you get.. Dave
  22. I really like these kits and think they make a lovely change to what we see and model all the time. Two big ticks for originality and craftsmanship. Cheers and well modelled.. Dave
  23. A belated acknowledgement from me for a wonderful build and lovely tribute. You’ve done a marvellous job here and it’s all that more rewarding with a great family connection to help tell the story. Really nice work. Cheers and well modelled.. Dave
  24. I agree with Pat, John. The Hobbyboss kit was a good choice and those decals look quite good. I don’t want to sound negative, however I’m hoping the white decals are thick enough when applied, I’ve had some unpleasant experiences of see through Hobbyboss decals in the past. Cheers and best of luck.. Dave
