  1. my son and I also had a great day at the show. We were with the Bedford club. He kept going to the raffle and kept coming back with prices (a mix of books and kits). He was well pleased. He also enjoyed the make and paint (his world war 1 tank was built and painted and the show and at somepoint in the afternoon he sneaked it onto the club stand to be display!!)
  2. Hi All, Completed for a friend at work. Tamiya kit with the legend resin set (rear awning, wheel cover and front grill cover) Am hapy with the result, I am an aircraft builder at heart, so this was a bit out of my comfort zone.
  3. Thanks Zigomar. I have had a look back through the instructions and found I page I must have missed. I also missed off the access step and the weight balancers on the flaps drop the underside.
  4. The zero was painted with xf-11 with highlights of xf-13. The Dinah was done more xf-13 I think. Are those the clear bulb bits on top of the wings. I seem to have misplaced to sprue. It will show up I am sure
  5. Eduard 1/48 Zero finished. Really nice kit to build. I accidentally knocked off the instrument panel towards the end of the build, so closed the canopy up. All markings other than the numbers on the tail were masked and painted. The green turned out to be a lot darker than I expected. I recently built the Tamiya Dinah and thought I was using the same green, but this has come out more black green. I am happy with it anyway. the Last pic is of it with the Tamiya Dinah I recently finished
  6. The latest off my work bench. I added a lot of extra detail inside the plane which can be seen through the many windows. All markings masked and painted except for the tail marking which I opted to use the decal for.
  7. ha ha. yes, I think she is a keeper (also, she has been with me for a long time, she almost feels like part of the family
  8. Thanks. I was pleased with how it came out. the size of the gravel stones I used, looks right
  9. I was lucky, when house hunting earlier this year, we were looking round a house (the one we are in the process of buying) which had a large garage and the wife said to me 'you could turn this into a really good workshop' I think she just wants to keep me out of her lovely new house
  10. Thanks Chris. I received an email confirming our attendance from Colin Last night
  11. We got a flyer about this at the Milton Keynes Show (I was on the Bedford stand). Have emailed to confirm we would like to attend and display, but not heard anything back. Has anyone else had confirmation that they are booked in?
  12. Thanks Toryu. Glad you like it. My Grand dad was in the Gordon Highlanders in North Africa
  13. An old kit, but it went together very nicely (except for the rubber band tracks), why do kit manufacturers do these?)
  14. The halftrack was shown on the armoured vehicles section a couple of months ago. the kit came with a 5 figures, so I decided to try and make a diorama out of it. The Base is homemade and I used a couple of Tamiya weapons kits and fuel can kits to add extra detail to the diorama, including filling up the back of the half track with bits. I also added a heavily weathered broken BMW bike as I liked the look of it. I added a storage box to the front of the halftrack, a folded tarpoline and a bucket (again because I liked the look of it . I particularly enjoyed weathering the oil can (particularly how the different paint tones have come through on the one lying on its side. . Ready just in time for the Milton Keynes show next week.
  15. Sometimes the modelling mojo hides away, I love those moments after no modelling for a few weeks and I think, I really need to crack on with this project. I will just do x to it for today and then find myself fully engrossed in the project again an hour later which leads to several evenings in a row working on it. I also enjoy airbrushing kits and experimenting with shading etc to see what sort of finish I can get. I also find a ton of masking tape theraputic and enjoy the unpeeling of said tape to reveal a finished demarcation line.
