  1. I don't know if there is a record for the longest time taken to complete a kit, but this has taken me over ten years to get to the stage you see here. The late 1960s Chrysler Corporation "B-Body", mid-size cars are some of my favourite cars; I have various models of this family of vehicles. Off the top of my head there were the Dodge Coronet and Super Bee; Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite, Road Runner and GTX. Plymouth billed the GTX as the gentleman's muscle car, with luxury trim as well as powerful engines. I think I picked up this kit through ebay; I always wanted to
  2. I present my Revell Airbus A319 in the new livery of American Airlines N800IN. The build was OOB with the addition of Braz Sharklets and aftermarket decals from 26Decals and Authentic Airliners. It was a straightforward enough build, with the usual removal of the additional flap track fairings for the A321. I’ve had this model on my bench for a long time, but just never got round to finishing it off... so I’m trying to get through unfinished projects before starting anything new. I still think it looks quite strange seeing an A319 baby bus with sharklets... The p
  3. Here is my completed American Airlines 777-300 1/44 scale using the Revell Kit, displayed in the new livery This colour stressed me out for so long, and I kept mixing it until I found a colour that I was happy with taking into account various photos of the real thing under different lighting conditions. Interesting to know your thoughts? The paint mix I went for was mixing Revell light grey 371, Revell white gloss 04 and a touch of Revell Silver 90. It was a case of keep mixing until I found a shade I was most happy with. Wings and stabs are Revell 371. Was then clear coated severa
  4. Hi all here is my recently finished 1:32 Supermarine Spitfire PRXI. The Tamiya Spitfire MKIX kit (60319) converted using Alley Cats PRXI conversion (AC32023C). Aircraft finished as MB948 “Oh johnie” based at mount farm Oxfordshire 1944/45 I added extra detail in the cockpit ie wiring and plumbing. Tamiya paints used XF-1 XF-16 XF-18 XF-71 XF-85 X-2 X-23 X-25 X-27 among others with Florys dark dirt wash and Humbrols weathering powders. Pledge floor care Windsor and Newton Matt varnish to finish Thanks for looking and Enjoy
  5. American Fire Truck Crew (1910s) ICM 1:24 ICM seem to be working their way through as many Ford T car variants as they can on 1:24 scale. One of these was the Model T Fire Truck. Now they bring us this set of two figures for the truck. One is the driver and the second is another fireman standing on the running board directing the driver. The two figures are on one sprue of the now familiar caramac coloured plastic. There will be some seam lines to clean up on a few parts but nothing excessive. In general the mould in crisp and clean with pleanty of detail.
  6. Greetings all, I apparently signed up for these forums quite some time ago and either didn't become active or only briefly participated. Either way I was on the lookout for a new social medium platform among like minded mates and one such fellow, called Gorby here, advised me to check in. Thus I hope this is the one for me. I am a Yank but don't let that ward you off, beyond the pond, there are a lot of we mere modellers that would rather focus on our polystyrene than the rubbish on television.
  7. So I received the Academy M1A2 TUSK last year, asking for it in part because I spotted the Miniart Modern U.S. Army Tank Crew set. Unfortunately, that set is still listed as 'Coming Soon' even when a new one, the USMC crew set, seems to have been simultaneously announced and released >< As I understand it, the Marine and Army crew uniforms are quite different, so you couldn't pass one off as the other. What is particularly frustrating is I always make the Army version (seem to have more gadgets on them), but all the modern tanker figures seem to be Marines, and for some
  8. Hi All This is my fourth build since returning to kits after many years and I'm really enjoying it, very relaxing and therapeutic! Well this one is the Hobby Boss M4 High speed Tractor which I just fancied the look of to be honest. It was a great kit, excellent value with the included PE, chains, paint masks, colour chart etc. great value. This is my first play with PE, god it's fiddly isn't it! I still have a lot to learn with regards to weathering especially rust effects which I tried, binned and gave up un but practice makes perfect? Overall I'm reasonably happy for a fourth attempt. It w
  9. M42a1 Duster 1:35 AFV Club The Duster was a self-propelled Anti-Aircraft tank developed from the Walker Bulldog, a light tank that superseded the Chaffee adding more firepower into the mix. Like its sibling, the Duster was heavy, noisy and hungry for fuel, with a range of only 100 miles between refuelling stops. Instead of the turret of the Bulldog, it had an enlarged turret-ring that facilitated mounting of a pair of 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft cannon, which were fully-automatic, with a theoretical fire rate of 120 rounds per minute from each barrel. It served from 1953, but was deemed outm
