  1. Hi, here are pics on my Airfix Lynx converted to G-LYNX using the Belcher Bits conversion set. It was part of the Lynx GB and finished just in time, but desater struck and I had to reassemble some parts before I could take pics this morning. So that is why I now post the pics here instead of the (meanwhile closed) GB Gallery... Build log is here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234950976-148-airfix-lynx-g-lynx-world-speed-record/ Thanks for looking, Rene
  2. Hi, so here I start my first build on BM and my first GB My Lynx arrived on Friday at my door step and I am really impressed by the Airfix offering. I haven't build a helicopter for ages but just had to start a GB and as the Lynx GB was just a few weeks ahead I had a good reason to order the Airfix kit plus the Belcher Bits conversion for the world speed record holder G-Lynx: As I am awfully bad in actually finishing models I though a GB will provide some pressure on me. Despite of the Belcher Bits conversion I will not add any aftermarket stuff although I find the Eduard sets very tempting. I simply do not want to lose track and keep this build as straight forward as possible. I have a Roden Junkers D.I in 1:48 I am currently working on and which is by now almost finished (need to glue some small stuff and then it is done tonight), which had a similar plan (almost OOB but well... almost.). After taking the picture below it received the flat coat yesterday and so I started the Lynx despite I said to me I want to finish the b****dy Junkers first. So here is my "progress" on the Lynx so far: Just glued two seat parts together, removed the molded on harness and did start my own harness with milliput. Rene Edit: Just corrected the pics... and a million typos.
  3. Lynx AH-7 Instrument Panel (for Airfix) 1:48 C-Lab Design This is a new company, actually a friend of mine by the name of Nick, who inhabits this very site under the nom de guerre "Nick". He decided that the Lynx could do with a new panel when he was building one on the forum here. C-Lab is a reference to his Chocolate Labradors, which he dotes on… bless! My review sample arrived in a simple white envelope, delivered by a funny looking chap by the name of Dan, Nick's unofficial PR man and another forum member. Inside was a page of A4 paper that contained the instructions for building and installing the panel. The small fret of Photo-Etch (PE) was taped to the back with a short length of 18mm Tamiya tape, so there's no danger of sticky residue on your PE. The panel has been patterned to fit perfectly in the recess within the instrument coaming, and if you install the instrument decals first, they will show through the holes etched into the panel. Simply paint the main panel first, then attach it to the decaled coaming with some Klear or similar gloss varnish. The instructions are comprehensive and give plenty of tips on how to achieve the best results, and even how to make some rather clever switches from styrene strip to decorate the panel with. The set also includes the ancillary panels and the centre console, which makes for a complete set. You can find a PDF copy of the instructions here. For pictures of the set in action see Nick's photos below, or have a look through the thread where it all began here. Conclusion As I said at the outset, Nick is a friend, so I'm bound to be seen as a little biased, but the results speak for themselves. If you just want a simple upgrade to the instrument panel and don't want to either wait or spend the money on the future Eduard sets, then this is for you. It's simple, well documented and works well with the existing decals. Highly recommended. Contact Nick on the forums for a set if you're interested. Review sample courtesy of C-Lab Design.
