  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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

    Thanks. The darker colour was a mix of red brown, yellow and orange

    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

    Thanks. I am pleased with how it came out
  8. This is the revell boxing. I wanted to push my skills a bit and decided to use the decals as templates to make my own masks for the tiger design (as I think painted looks better than decals!). Took a while to mask the whole thing and paint, but I am pleased with how it came out. The orange red was my own mix which I think works. I also added a FOD cover over the intake and exhaust. Hope you all like it. _20180730_202016 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0810 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_201953 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_202117 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_202055 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_201856 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_201830 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_201929 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180730_201759 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  9. Not sure if this is the right section (Sci Fi didnt seem quite right) A nice flash back to my childhood. Looks good on the shelf next to the Ghostbusters car and the Back to the Future Delorean Interior shots _20180608_123218 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180608_123136 by Richard Page, on Flickr Would have loved to put the scanner lighting kit in, but I couldnt find one online anywhere. I added a single LED to the scanner, which looks ok (please excuse the dust) _20180608_123059 by Richard Page, on Flickr Finished article _20180608_123027 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180608_123003 by Richard Page, on Flickr Only part that didnt go well was adding smoke to top windows. _20180608_122941 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180608_122916 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180608_122853 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180608_122828 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  10. stunning kit to build. the fit was great and only a little bit of filler used. I dont live that far from Lakenheath (Cambridge) and was pleased to find that the F-15j is a japanese version of the F-15c. Might not be 100% accurate but I am happy with it. I brought decals from Caracal models and am happy with the result. The blue is a bit pale, but looks ok. _20180328_184932 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185109 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185410 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190441 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190653 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190718 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190817 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_191056 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0369 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0369 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0404 by Richard Page, on Flickr Used tamiya tape to make intake covers. Luckily the Caracal decals had a couple of nifty spare decals in yellow. Am really happy with the result _20180328_191158 by Richard Page, on Flickr The exhausts are a work of art from the kit. Easch one is made up of 21 parts!! Tried to replicate the white/brown/black insides of the exhausts. Also tried to heat stain the metal panels underneath _20180328_191000 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190920 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190848 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190817 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185317 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185208 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  11. Thanks. Painted definitely better. Takes a lot longer and with some lot of tape used. The guys at my club thought I was nuts earlier this week masking up the black bits on the markings
  12. Added extra wiring to the engine to beef it up a bit. All the national markings (bar the swastikas on the tail) and number 1 on the fuselage sides were created with homemade masks. The nose markings was fun to do!!
