  1. Absolutely superb! I have Trumpeters offering on the go at the moment and there's quite abit to correct. Might have been better just to start with the SH kit!

    FAAbulous Sea Fury

    Very nice Sea Fury!
  4. Really lovely, I'm a big fan!
  5. Absolutely fantastic Blenheim. I have literally just finished Blenheim's over Greece and Crete by Brian Cull. These guys feature in it as does a picture of that aircraft. 30 Sqn had a really rough time especially when the German paratroopers dropped in.

    RN Jeeps on HMS Formidable 1945

    Haha yes indeed! I managed to buy an elephant fairly recently from a local toy shop that looks roughly 1/48, I think its even an asian one too! Fifi the elephant was Puttalam based, I just read a FAA pilots account of his time out in the Fleet fighter pool. The book was called ‘Oops’ and relayed a story where Fifi was tasked to pull a corsair out of some soft ground and back onto the runway. A well dressed officer was standing to the rear of said elephant. As she strained to pull the corsair, her bowels relaxed and....... all over the officer! Now that would be a diorama!

    RN Jeeps on HMS Formidable 1945

    Haha indeed. I’d love to model a jeep with my FAA collection, @iang would you mind reposting it?
  13. The method you have of painting the aircraft all the way through is correct though and all in the right order if you wanted to pursue that avenue. I believe some of the examples of people modelling have been based on some well known photos of JT-S, N1744 which was a very worn looking RDM2a with a chalky finish. If you can get a copy of the boulton paul defiant by Richard Franks it has some examples of those photos.
  14. Oh Yes Phil, very nice! I love what you’ve done with the rear canopy and I like the background too! makes me want to do another! Nick
