  1. Hi folks, Second build for me in this gb, one of Lawrence Weggery's SEAC Spitfire Vcs. I'll be using the new Airfix Vc kit and dk decals. I hope you appreciate the following photo skills . Although obviously Weggery was from the Antipodes, so I suppose its apt! Like with the Beau, I've just done a bit of pre-painting and some initial assembly of the cockpit: I was pleased with the way the ip decal settled down over the raised detail with micro-sol and -set. It also looks very realistic to me.
  2. Hi folks, Thanks for letting me join the gb. This build is going to be a RAAF TF.X produced in the UK and painted in the TSS camo scheme of EDSG / DSG / Sky. Decals are a very generous gift from @tonyot and I have a choice of 2 Beaus in this camo scheme, both from a dk decals sheet. Using the latest boxing of the Airfix kit with the very evocative artwork: Build will be oob, as I'm keen to get to the painting. Not done too much so far; just priming, spray-painting and some basic assembly. More soon, hopefully.
  3. I am a brush and rattle-can painter, and although I have improved over the years, I have never produced a particularly realistic finish. Having seen a series of excellent finishes from someone on BM, I thought I'd try pastels. So, out came the AMT Ju 88C nightfighter which I built as an experiment. So, here's the result: What d'you think? Rgds Martin
  4. Hi folks, I had formed half a plan some time ago to try to accurise a Revell Boston III. Of the 3 classic kits of this version (Airfix, FROG, Revell*), I have formed an opinion that the last might be the 'best' to start from. Whether this is true or not, that's what I've gone with. However, not being able to source a Boston III, I got hold of this: I had a vague hope that this might include alternative bits for the glazed nose BIII. Well, I subsequently found it shouldn't have, but I got partially lucky: It m
  5. Hi folks, Just a placeholder for my second build, assuming my Ju52 build goes ok. The kit I will use is winging it's way to me as I type. No clues to its identity, beyond noting its an aircraft from my general period of interest and it's not yet on the GB build list. Rgds Martin
  6. Hi folks, Like Heather, I will be building the Ju52/3m; likely with a fading winter whitewash finish from the Eastern Front. At least that is the plan. Heather has saved me the trouble of displaying sprues shots, but here is the artwork on the classic black box: Knowing next to nothing about the '52, I will be raiding Heather's build thread for ideas. However, my plan is to build this as close to oob as I can. I have made a start. The plastic is quite hard and clean up of pieces is fast. I'm hoping it's not too brittl
  7. Hi everybody; after a couple of propeller builds, here I am back to a jet, and in 1/72! A few words to introduce this project: almost one year ago, I started the build of a Hasegawa 1/72 F-4 J Phantom II, this one: It was my first serious venture in 1/72 scale, and was a lot of fun. I learnt a lot from all the people who followed that WIP, and one in particular is Gene K; former USAF F4 pilot, he has been very helpful both in terms of technical info on the AC and in terms of modelling tips. Long story short, we became friends an I offered him, as a sort of way to thank him for the great he
  8. Hi folks, I don't usually start build threads as I find it puts me under pressure. However, I feel that this one may have to be the exception. Look at that Roy Cross artwork goodness! I have wanted to make one of these for some time, but always chickened out. Hopefully, starting this thread will keep me focused. Here's the box contents. Cool old style exploded view instructions: I am planning a few improvements, although nothing too extensive. A few simple additions to the cockpit and turrets, some boxing in of th
  9. Hi everybody; last August I was in California for a big family holiday/vacation and, among other things, I got the chance to visit the The Flying Leathernecks museum in Miramar, right next to the Marine Corps Air Station and just outside of San Diego. After the visit, we walked into their gift shop and my youngest daughter insisted on buying this kit, so that she and I would have built it together once home. Was I supposed to disappoint a 9 years old cute little girl? Not really! So I bought it and, after finally completing my 9 months build of the Italeri A-10A
  10. Hello Britmodellers; here's my new project, the probably well known 1 72 Hasegawa F4-J Phantom II. I'm moving out of my comfort zone here, as I normally build in 1 48 scale, but I got this kit at bargain price and I decided (after a very challenging RE2002 from Italeri) to try with this. I intended to build this OOB, but then I got tempted along the way ... and I ordered the Eduard Pre-painted zoom set for the cockpit (hasn't arrived yet). Plus I sourced an old Eduard PE detail set at my local shop (sorry, forgot to take pics before starting cutting out pieces..) So I started with a
  11. Hi all and I'm in with this one, to be built as a troop 'Slick' version. This GB needs choppers! Hopefully I can do a decent job with it. Cheers, Dermot
