  1. Absolutely nailed it in my opinion, that is a cracker. Very nicely done.
  2. That is a stunner - very nice indeed.
  3. Always good to see one of these lesser spotted cats, that is very nicely done. Top notch.

    1/48 Su-33 Red 81

    A truly stunning model, very precise and it looks exceptional to me.
  5. They are doing both a two (three)piece canopy and frame and a single piece canopy. There are no pilot figures, I don't see this as a problem as you can get much better bespoke figures to match the kit level of detail.

    That does look really good, nicely done.

    Colourset improvements

    Great idea, as the saying goes, 'a picture paints a thousand words'.
  8. I love a Tomcat, this is brilliant. I can't remember seeing a model version of the F-14 prototypes before, great attention to detail with all of this. Very effective and glad she has survived so well.

    Looks good, what paints did you use for the ADC grey? The 102 and 106 just have that 'fast' look about them, very nice.

    Looking good, big fan of the mottling!

    First Tamiya Motorbike Kit questions....

    Up to you with the 'on or off the sprue' option, I've seen both done but I would prefer to do it off, to allow part clean up and even partial assembly where appropriate to aid priming.

    First Tamiya Motorbike Kit questions....

    You could get an airbrush, but I imagine that you also just get some spray paint plastic primer and some white spray paint. Whether Tamiya spray or Halfords (insert any other type here) it should be ok. You can use your other paints to do smaller detail painting by brush.

    Milliput might be a good fix for this - two part filler, you can wet it and push it into position easily and shape it snooth while wet. That is a nasty gap.
  14. Simply superb, great group pics too. Nice to see the care and attention your dad puts into each of these.

    How to make clean oval holes

    Might be an idea to use a scribing template in conjunction with the above technique. I.E. scribe your 12 ovals, then you can drill the 24 holes and have scribed marking outlines for the cutting/filing to join the two holes. Hasegawa and Lion Roar do some good scribing templates.
