  1. Wasnt sure whether to put this here or in the Sci Fi section. This is the 1/35 Meng Pickup W/ZPU-2. I got then idea from the box that called it the Velocaraptor series. I printed my own decals for the doors and bonnet and ammo boxes. I figured that jurassic Park must of had a fleet of utility vehicles painted in their corporate colours. Once the Dinosaurs escaped, they had to upgrade some of their vehicles to deal with the threat, As the park vehicles would have been new and in good condition, I decided to keep weathering to a minimum (just some splattered mud). Hope that you enjoy Basic utility vehicle _20190421_123847 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190421_123822 by Richard Page, on Flickr Upgraded vehicle _20190421_123755 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190421_123615 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190421_123544 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190421_123504 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190421_123413 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_1713 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_1711 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  2. thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely Hellcat build. Just received the airfix email with further pics of the completed model. very nice. I was convinced the seatbelts were aftermarket, but apparently not. Very nice painting skills Jim. The point I found myself glued to the screen was when Jim was putting finishing touches to the engine, it looked like you were using clear orange for the exhaust? was that for heat staining?
  3. I thought the same thing about the wheel bay and cockpit colours and even held off painting until I had checked it out. The seat was also supposed to be interior green but I decided to break up the internal green with aluminium. Is a big beasty, forgot how hard to handle this scale is, knocked loads of things over turning the plane around for sanding and masking
  4. Nice. Thought it was a red arrows what if at first
  5. Love the afterburner effect. Nicely done. Your friend will hopefully be well pleased with this
  6. Picked up the basic boxing at the Brampton model show last year and it was a real bargain as it was full of extra resin bits, not all was used in the kit as there were resin late and early wheels, 2 different types of seats etc. I used one of the seats with moulded on seatbelts, and the replacement wing guns (which invoice cutting the gun panel out of the leading edge of the upper and lower wing) not really worth the effort in the long run. Decided to buy the montex paint masks for the national insignias and codes (all except the Z which I had to make myself). I think that the painted on effect looks much better (getting the masks to like up on the fuselage roundels was a pain in the backside as the shape of the fuselage pulled the circle out of shape and getting the different colour circle masks to fit together was challenging. The fit of some parts (such as cockpit framework was exemplary, other parts (such as the wing halves) were not so good. The red and blue of the insignia was my own mix from different tamiya paints. Am pleased with the result.

  7. Hi Guys. Been busy and forgot about this thread. Yes, I forgot about the steps to the cockpit (I am working on the basis that they are folded away") It is a bit dirtier than I intended, but doesnt ,look as bad in real life The inside of the exhausts do need weathering, I will get onto that.
  8. Good evening, Completed over the new year. eduard zoom used in the cockpit and a rotor folding kit used to fold the rotors back, _20190102_102135 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102252 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102327 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102355 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102506 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102527 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20190102_102613 by Richard Page, on Flickr Vintage filter added _20190102_103749 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  9. Thanks for the comments guys. The rotor holders were hust bits from the spares box, so not 100% accurate to the real thing. I wanted to do the frame as it adds interest to the finished model. This is the airfix new mould
  10. Cracking little kit. Decided after seeing the example at Duxford, that I wanted to try and replicate the metal framework rotor holders the machine at Duxford had. Made out of brass wire and bits from the spare box. Am happy with how it came out. I also added a bit of detail to the tail fold (although trying to photograph it was very difficult. _20181018_202837 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_1290 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202801 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202405 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202735 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202329 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202209 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202042 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_202042 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_195102 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20181018_195023 by Richard Page, on FlickrDSC_1291 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  11. Thanks. The darker colour was a mix of red brown, yellow and orange
  12. Thanks guys. There was a few moments when I questioned my sanity. Particularly when cutting out photocopies of the decals and assembling them like a jigsaw before covering this with tamiya tape and cutting out the shape for the mask as the decals were broken up into sections on the decal sheet
  13. Thanks. I am pleased with how it came out
