With all the recent talk of new 1/32nd British Phantoms on the horizon from HK Models, it got me thinking... 1/32nd scale is too small! So... here's a 1/24th scale rendition for you... I've gone for the Combat Models vacform, which I ordered in from the good old USA. The kit is somewhat basic (as with all Combat kits) but claims to provide the parts for every variant of F-4 built. The base kit looks like you can either build an F-4B or a F-4E, but I've decided to make life even more difficult for myself and being a patriotic Englishman, decided it'd be criminal not to have a go at a Rolls-R
I started this back in November of 2014, and after 8 months of hard toil, I've got my big C-17 finished. Boeing C-17A Globemaster III, 99 Squadron, RAF Brize Norton.

There are no injection molded kits of this aircraft in existence, but I knew that Combat Models did a 'kit' of this aircraft. As soon as I got home I ordered one, and a few weeks later it arrived. Kits such as these are bumps in plastic, which give a good starting point to what is always a good modelling adventure. A resin 'detail' set was provided, which gave me the engines, propellers, undercarriage and intakes etc. De
Now the dust has settled after my B-29 project I've succumbed to my love of 'challenges' and have settled on my next long term project - a 1/32nd scale Vickers Wellington from Combat Models... I'll start by showing you what you get 'in the box'. Here are the fuselage halves: Wings: Fin, stabilisers, intakes and the option to do a MkII with Merlins: I think this sheet gives me an H2S blister to do a Coastal Command machine, and what I presume are nacelles for radial engined variants: A set of transparencies which are beautifully clear (the first decent set I've come across from Co
