  1. Hello Chaps, After building my Airfix 1/72 Vickers Wellington B.III and my Revell GmbH 1/72 Handley Page Halifax B.III, I decided that I wanted to put them on a display base to show them off, and, include the Airfix Bomber Re-Supply set. So, I bought the kit and did just that, but was disappointed that they don't include figures and Airfix have discontinued making their 1/72 RAF Personnel kit. But that said, a good modeling buddy from the UK sent me a set of ICM 1/72 scale RAF figures. This post just covers the Bomber Re-Supply set...still building the base and have yet to begin th
  2. Hello Chaps, It's been quite a while since I posted on here, due to life and work, but today, I've finally got a little time to post something. This Revell of Germany kit is another great kit produced by them, engineered well, good quality molded parts, nice details, and everything goes together very well. I only required a little filler and that was at the joins of where the canopy and front nose end window fitted to the fuselage. Flash was very little if anything, ejector pin witness marks were kept away from visible surfaces and nothing was warped, but, exactly what you'd e
  3. Hello Chaps, This is a second build that I did to join my Revell 1/72 Handley Page Halifax B.III for the "Bomber Command Buddy Build" that I hosted both on Facebook and YouTube. I decided to not be tempted by the new Wellington kit by Airfix, although it is a beautiful kit, and decided I'd try my best at making this oldie look reasonable. The plastic is really strange, very hard, tough black plastic that doesn't react well with Tamiya Thin cement. Very hard to cut with a craft knife, almost like a glass filled nylon rather than a styrene plastic. I wanted to make it look d

  5. Hello Chaps, This is my fourth "Hairy Stick" adventure that I completed in January 2017- again, this was a very basic kit by Matchbox from 1980 that has been in my stash untouched for a very long time. Upon opening the box, I found that the decals were missing along with the port-side air brake. I was fortunate to discover that a fellow modeling buddy had a spare set of decals for this kit that he kindly sent to me, the port-side air brake, I scratch built by using the starboard side air brake as a template and marking out the shape onto a molded part that had very similar surface
  6. Hello Chaps, Two days ago, I completed my latest "Hairy Stick" build- the Italeri 1/72 scale F-16 A/B NATO Falcon. This kit is discontinued and was tooled new in 1980, and in between was repackaged a few times with new box art, new parts and decals, but never new tooling. So, the tooling is 37 yrs old, but I have to say that it was pretty decent. The parts had nice fine recessed panel lines, a reasonably detailed cockpit that included two plain seats each within their own tub that had side consoles. Two instrument panels were included, but nothing else. I decided to dress up the co
  7. Hello Chaps, This is my third "Hairy Stick" adventure that I completed in December 2016- a very basic kit by Matchbox from 1973 that has been in my stash untouched for a very long time. Again, I was really concerned about the decals being so old and the fact that they had "yellowed", whether they would work or not, but, if I let them sit in warm water for a few minutes, I was able to carefully peel them from the backing paper, they wouldn't slide, but I was just happy that I got them to work! The cockpit for this two-seater trainer version was very basic- just two seats
  8. Hello Chaps, This is my second "Hairy Stick" adventure that I completed in November 2016- a very basic kit by Matchbox from 1976 that has been in my stash untouched for a very long time. I was really concerned about the decals being so old and the fact that they had "yellowed", whether they would work or not, but, if I let them sit in warm water for a few minutes, I was able to carefully peel them from the backing paper, they wouldn't slide, but beggars can't be choosers...I was just happy i got them to work! I'm not going to say anything about the kit itself, because i
  9. Hello Chaps, It's been a while since I posted anything, but this is because my wife and I moved to a new home that we bought. With all the packing, moving, unpacking and settling in, time went by fast....6 months to be precise before I touched styrene again. Well, since the move, I still haven't found the time to create my new man-cave/modeling den in the basement, which means that airbrushing is a no go, and so, because I was getting severe withdrawals, I decided to try my hand at brush-painting some 1/72 scale kits in my stash. I chose to do 1/72 rather than my normal 1/32 or 1/4
  10. Hello Chaps, Until my man-cave is setup in my new home, I cannot do any airbrushing and so my last 6 builds have been "old school" brushing with the "hairy sticks". I've decided to stick with 1/72 scale while using brushes because there is less surface area to cover compared to the 1/32 scale I prefer to build. This was my first adventure with the bristled wands that I completed in November, 2016- the HobbyBoss 1/72 Seahawk Mk.100/101. Not a bad little kit with decent tub details for this scale; I added seat belts made out of foil from the top of a wine bottle and the rest was OOB.
