  1. Finally finished this which has been on and off the shelf for around a year. Cheers, Sam
  2. Following the confirmation late last night that British Airways intends to retire its entire fleet of Boeing 747-436's, I felt it was a fitting time to bring this kit to the workbench. I have flown the 747 since 2016, after a twelve year stint on the 757/767 fleet. My last flight on the aircraft was in March, just as lockdown was starting - maybe I will get the chance to operate one more flight as the aircraft are dispersed...? The kit is the Revell offering - here's the box: Rather than the "Landor" scheme provided, I shall be finishing the model in one o
  3. The black banner is back! Because it is 2020 and we may all agree it is a special one... upon entering code "CZPT2020" you get 20% discount on all items available at http://www.shelfoddity.com. Starting tomorrow, the black banner will stay up until Wednesday 2nd Dec. Best regards, Marek PS. A small teaser of what is in the kitchen now:
  4. Hey folks, i'm back haha after finishing my easyjet 319, i'm now sharing with you a WIP of two A320s. One is a custom order from someone, the other one is for myself. The custom ordered one will be AerLingus and my own will be holiday airlines, an airline most of you probably haven't heard of. Basically my friend @Berko suggested to do something from turkey, which initially wasn't my preference, but then i remembered that i flew to turkey in '94 and in a split second the choice was made. Since i have a weird tendency to build rare birds or things that are neith
  5. We must fight on, whatever happens. I should count it a privilege to be dead if Hitler rules England. I had not thought I should have to live through such awful days... From the diary of Sir Alexander Cadogan, Permanent Under Secretary of the Foreign Office How grim things must have seemed then. It is sobering to imagine the uncertainty of the times, even with our own present troubles. Civilization was on the brink, and it is frightful to think where we would be now as a people, as a species, if things had gone the other way. I'm always interested to read th
  6. Kit : Learjet 35 Brand : Stransky Scale : 1/144 Decals : Kit Decals I got this in Telford two years ago. It’s really small kit, so I’m hoping it will be a relatively quick build. The cabin windows are filled, you get decals to represent them, but they’re marked on the inside. I decided to drill them out because I think it will look strange if the cockpit is clear and the cabin windows are decals. It’s quite easy to drill out the windows but you have to be careful because you don't need to drill all of them.
  7. Hello, It will be my first model build. I am used to painting gaming miniatures and larger busts, but I would like to try something new. Millenium falcon starship always fascinated me. Since I was a little boy I always wanted to build it. I have chosen 1/144 scale because finished product is not gigantic and can nicely fit in the shelf, on the other hand, model details are still superb. I was lucky to get this one really cheap. I know that recent released version has some minor bugs fixed, but for me this already is supper cool (by the way, you can read more about it here: https://
  8. My projects have been on hold for some time. Most of my hobby stuff is wrong side of the border and currently traveling is bit a problem. So I have supported my local hobby shop and purchase some basic things to continue modelling in second home. First project is Dornier Do-X in Otaki boxing. Same molds are use for Revell and Matchbox boxing's. Basically plastic looks good, better what I have seen in Revell box. Some basic information can be found from wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornier_Do_X Only 3 planes were ever constructed and first plane was use
  9. Zvezda 737-800 straight from the box but with 26 Ryan Air decals. Flew on this to Lanzarote in 2019 - remember when we could do things like that? Steve
  10. Part two of my little gunship builds, and I'm doing the Hercules AC-130A ,the minicraft kit, its a simple construction, I've dry built it and there's nothing to report in the way of fit horror stories, even the wings will plug in after painting to make this far less stressfull while painting , theres a short shot on the underside of the port wing that'll need sorting first off , and you get a stand in the box too, so choosing the scheme, i was going to do "azrael angel of death", but the full wrap around sea scheme (surprise package) has seduced me ,I'm even tempted to do the early rom
  11. I bought this recently and thought that it would have made a nice subject for the Anything but Injection group build, but because that didn't make the cut for this years group builds I am going to build it here. The box and its contents are shown below, I have quite a busy schedule at the moment but I hope to start soon. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  12. Hello Everyone; For those of you already follow construction stages on my Instagram account, as of today, I finally finished 1/144 Revell Boeing 767-300 Asiana. Construction adventure took more than 20 weeks but happy with the result. Some scratch built details added like anti collision s, engine vortex generators. For the paints, Xtracolor X309 Asiana buff (which is by far the worst paint ever used in terms of pigmentation) used for upper section. Lower section of the fuselage painted with Mr. Color C316 white, wings and horizontal stabilizers painted with
  13. Starting this tiny Tornado IDS, Revell 1/144. As other recent Revell kits in this scale, this one is beautiful, with enough parts to assemble a very decent cockpit, wheel wells and landing gear, fine negative scribing, moving elevators, swinging wings (although choosing that option, means not using any underwing ordnance...). Two marking options, I don´t really like the Tigermeet scheme, but I´ll assemble that same Tornado (43+46) in the Norm 87D scheme used when transferred from the Marinenflieger to the Luftwaffe (no Tiger stripes this time). I started with the coc
  14. I present my recently completed 1/144 scale Roden C-47, in the markings of the aircraft used by 335 squadron RNAF to transport the King of Norway, during the early 1960's. The model was built as part of the Nordic GB, but missed the deadline due to some last minute issues with the decals, which were rectified very promptly by Vingtor.. The full WIP can be seen here Having built several DC-3's in this scale before (both minicraft), I think the Roden offering has the edge, in terms of looks and accuracy. Wheel wells were fully detailed inte
  15. The very first Kliment Voroshilov tank, tested in the winter war of 1939-40 on one of my usual mini vignette bases.
  16. EGNT Newcastle Airport Main Terminal Pier 1/144 Firstly I must say I'm not sure if this project belongs in the diorama or civil aviation thread but I'd thought I'd appeal to the small number of airliner fans as I'm going to need some expertise on the way. Some of the aircraft I'm going to make are going to be conversions and from some dodgy kits (minicraft). Newcastle Airport is a very small airport and it's only terminal is served by a pier surrounded by a handful of aircraft. Despite the expansion of the airport itself the pier has looked the same for the last 30 or
  17. I like this tiny 1/144 kits as I take them as a stress-reduction therapy between bigger projects. I wanted to give it a try to a couple Luftwaffe jets, the first one being this, the F-104G from Revell. The kit offers two options for markings, I will build the 26+53 from WTB61 (Technical Test Facility 61) at Manching, 1991. The kit provides a decent cockpit, main wheel well, workable front wheel well, nice landing gear, and jet engine exhaust, scribing is really nice. Only thing I would have expected is an option for open canopy, only closed option is avail
  18. With the RUFE done and humming with its motor driven propeller its time for the next time. I had a chance to drive to the storage and pick a couple of kits. The A-90 was not on my list but did catch my eyes when looking for something that can be built quick but also can be complicated/AMS'd to a diorama. I don't have any water/gel materials - this will have to wait till they lift the lock-down and the financial situation will be a bit more clear (no shopping as of now) - so it will be a kit only venture at this stage.
  19. This is the F-8E Crusader from the F-Toys US Navy Collection Volume 2. These are pre-painted Gashopon trading kits from Japan - apparently you can buy these in vending machines. Oh how I long to live in a country where I could pick up a kit in a vending machine! I stripped and repainted it completely. Well worth picking up if you want a few evenings worth of fun. More familiar in this scale is the Platz F-8, though that is an earlier mark. For a gashopon, this is among the nicest I have built in terms of fit and details. I'd quite forgotten how good
  20. A placeholder for a Mark1 Model 1/144 Harrier GR3, to be built as a 4Sqn bird with that amazing tail fin that I have always wanted to build.
  21. Two new 144th scale sets are available now – photo etched updates for two Cold War classics recently kitted by Mark I: Mirage IIIC/E and Early Harrier Versions: GR.1/GR/3/AV-8A/AV-8S. One new 1/350 naval set is also available now: a photo etched update for French battleship Danton (Hobby Boss). No less than six 1/700 scale sets also have reached our shelves: IJN Ship's Superstructure Wall Equipment Set, 1.1"/75 caliber "Chicago Piano" Gun and four USN Rangefinders and Guns Directors for Fast Battleships: North Carolina class, South Dakota class, Iowa class
  22. A return to 1/144 scale for this group build with this Mark 1 kit of the Westland Wessex. The decal choices are for three RN HAS.3's, including 'Humphrey' from HMS Antrim during the Falklands War, and a RAN HAS.31B. I am not too sure which one I will select yet. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  23. Hello, This is my latest build. Superb kit with wonderfull livery. I love it!
  24. Maybe I am blind but I don't seem to be able to find any information on making winglets for airliners. I know that I have to start by cutting a triangle of plasticard and filing it into shape but the part evading me is getting the bend in the base of the winglet where it joins the end of the wing. Any ideas, tips, or secrets gratefully received.
