  2. Hi everyone! My name is Ben from V1 Decals, and I think this will be my first post on this site. Very excited to see some of the great work on this site and look forward to posting some of my own models and projects! Some of you may have heard of my decals and I, but let me quickly introduce myself. I have been designing and producing airliner decals for probably close to 4 years now, and have since accumulated a catalogue of close to 200 liveries from around the world (with a heavy Canadian bias). When I'm not preoccupied with flying, working, or making decals I also like to try and build 1/200 models in my precious spare time. Summer is here and I've been very busy for the past couple months working on a number of new projects including a complete overhaul of my business. Nevertheless, it is my pleasure to announce July's new releases a day in advance and wish you all a great month of modelling. Stay tuned for many new changes in the coming months. All of our decals are laser printed, available in any scale, and can be found on the V1 Decals website. Be sure to check out the website and the new catalogue on the homepage for more details. Cheers! Advance Air Charter DC-8-62C Mexicanada Cargo DC-8-71F Westjet #100 737 NG 737-800 Odyssey International 757-200 ABX Air 767-200F Amerijet International 767-200F Ansett Australia 767-300 Surinam Airways A340-300 (Available soon in 1/144 from Xotic Planes) Air Club International 747-200 Air Canada Rouge 767-300 (Re-release)
  3. Hello, does anyone do tile decals for the Hasegawa space shuttle kit? Cheers, Andrew
  4. Found this online for £1.96 posted! (How do they make money on it?) So I thought I'd just snap it together, paint it & stick it on a shelf. As usual I got carried away... Corrected the engine nacelle shape and shortened the cowling, corrected the oil coolers, added the exhausts, ditched the glazing and made the cockpit frames from some square rod, cut out the rear window for the gunner's position (See below for the gun!) and worked on the undercarriage by drilling and filing to make them more realistic. While researching this plane I found a few photos online showing a gun mounted on the rear port side so I decided to add this. Made out of some scrap plastic card, rod and even one of my hairs as the cocking handle, it was a nightmare to glue together but I got there in the end. I decided to do a winter scheme so painted a generic light & dark green upper with blue lower then whitewashed the upper. For this I used Revell acrylic thinned with water to a 20/80 mix. It took 8 coats using a tiny brush to get the effect I was looking for but it was worth it in the end. A quick coat of Humbrol Clear and then I added the decals, did a bit of weathering and worked on the engraved lines with some thinned down ink. Everything was hand brushed except the final matt varnish. The windows were all made using Kristal Klear. So what started as an afternoon project turn into 5 days of holding my breath too long and going cross-eyed numerous times but I'm really happy with it.
  5. This is my 1/200th Dragon Vulcan B2 photos taken edited and uploaded with my iphone. Painted with humbrol rattle cans and weathered with citadel nuln oil, a pencil, and some dark grey chalk. Now the weather is getting better i will be giving each of these little 'ns its own place on here rather than the old group shot which didnt really have that good photos. hope you like her. Cheers Rob
  6. Well this is a first, having strayed into tanky-clanky things already, here comes boats! There I was minding my own business at Telford, when someone, quite possibly satan, quite literally put a 1/200 trumpy Arizona under my nose priced at fifty quid, this is a £200 kit so what are you going to do? Well if you're me, buy it obviously. Bargain or what? Well maybe, then came the After Market stuff. Oh dear, the fifty quid is well and truly out of the window then. So after patiently waiting for all the AM bits I needed from Japan to arrive - I've started. This thing is a monster, about a metre long, I've now got the MK1 design wooden deck and PE and it's simply superb, the kit's very good to start with in fairness but this is some of the nicest PE I've seen and the deck is something else. I've been cracking on today and have got a surprising amount done. Too tired for photos, but stay tuned if you're interested. God knows what I'm going to do with, it's already been made extremely clear that the mantelpiece is out of the question, plus it probably won't fit. Might end up mooring it somewhere and renting it out. Nick
  7. Trumpeter's new 1/200 Bismarck is now open for pre-orders. The kit is due for release in late October or early November and is set to be very popular. http://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/trumpeter-1200-german-battleship-bismarck/
  8. Greetings all. Going to attempt something out of the ordinary for me - Ive been doing so much military stuff I just fancied a change. I decided I want to do a Virgin Atlantic 747-400, in the 2010 livery - I rode "Mustang Sally" I believe when my wife and I went on honeymoon to Orlando, so thought that would be a great model to do! I dont know ANYTHING about civil stuff so this is going to be a fun build for me, Im not going for accuracy just something that will look nice on the shelf So here goes, popped off to TAHS the other weekend and pick up one of these: 1/144 Seemed a bit big for my gaff so I went for the 1/200. Kit seems nice, bummer about the raised panels, so they are coming off. Im going to build a lighting circuit for this also - would be cool to have it in flight and blinking away - any of you guys have some good references as to the light sequences and positions on a 747? more soon!
