  1. The first edition last year was top rate, and at a great location. Looking forward to this year's show.
  2. I agree with many comments above; very nice subtle finishing on the ship and the sea, and just a very high standard all round, particularly considering this is in 1:700.
  3. That looks great Beefy, and good to see a British subject - that's a very dynamic setting and nicely finished all round.
  4. Agree with all above; this is very finely finished with great detail and subtle finishing.
  5. Great job on this classic cruiser kit, looks very good.
  6. Super diorama, great work.
  7. I've used soil as a base for dioramas/display bases for some time now - it really is the perfect material. Not only plentiful and free, it's a perfect material for easily formed into rough, fine, or right down to powder like natural scaled down texture, and forms a good solid finish after sprinkling on a layer of thinned sprayed PVA, then perfect for airbrushing an improved shade. Static grass goes over this finish with no issues. I've generally sorted/sieved it to remove stones and plant material, but that's all, and it doesn't seem to deteriorate over time.
  8. That is top rate modelling; nicely done.
  9. Nice to see another build of this classic Airfix kit, and she looks particularly good in that camoflage scheme!
  10. Lovely job on this Anson (one of my favorite utility aircraft).
  11. This is incredible work in 1:35 - well done indeed.
  12. That's an exceptional build, great detail and finishing. the end product looks superb.
  13. I built the aircraft up after pre drilling the holes in the lower half of the top wing, but omitted the upper half of the top wing. I threaded each line through those tiny holes, pulled them tight one by one, put a dab of standard polysterene cement over each hole/threaded end, turned the aircraft up-side-down and clipped a mini clothes peg to each dangling line end to keep them all taught while the glue set overnight. The upper half of the top wing then nicely covered all the glued ends. First time I've done it this way but works well. May do some WWI planes in the future using this method. This is the drill set I use for all modelling work (available at Hobbycraft stores), as the thicker shaft doesn't need a driller, all holes can be done by rotating between finger and thumb. The smallest drill is good for rigging lines.
