  1. For my next build project, Dynavectors 1/48 Dehavilland Sea Vixen. Wanted to get away from another silver finish and since I wanted to do something different and there didn't seem to be another VIxen being built, This came to the fore. If there is enough time left I may do another but we shall see. And as this will be the first completed build of 2021 and I have several Vacs in different stages of completion,(all on the Shelf of Shame) as a New Years resolution 2021 will be the year of the Vac. Let us begin shall we? 2 All kinds of lovely plastic to cut and s
  2. Hi - I have to admit that I have had this kit in my stash for over 20 years, looked at it a few times but never got any further until I recently started reading our resident Martians Hawker Horsely build in WIP on Vacforms I felt compelled to get the kit out again and revisit it as well as the books I have collected over the years on the Scimitar & magazine articles. I logged onto Britmodeller and had a good look at three beautiful done Dynavector Scimitar models - https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/23706-dynavector-scimitar-148-vacform/#comme
  3. Hi guys n gals. Gonna dive in. I started a Dynavector 1:48 scale Scimitar a month ago. Lockdown and Corona Builds have slowed me down in my usual build speed what with doing dishes mopping the floors vaccuuming and cooking for the Boss so she lets me do nothing but sit with planes well I’m still new to posting here so I’ll try and figure out how to post wip pics.
  4. This is an old build but freshly repaired! If deemed inappropriate here mods please remove. This is the Dynavector Fairey Gannet kit which is 20 years old now, being a massive Gannetphile and with only the Frog (and derivatives) Gannet in 72nd available at the time, I had to build this one as soon as it came out. I had never made a vacform before (and this is still the only one) so I was a bit worried at first, however the build of this kit was actually pretty straightforward and really enjoyable. I added very little to the kit, just various aerials and probes etc, panel scribing, and weat
  5. This is one rescued from the shelf of doom, a Dynavector 1/48 Scimitar F1 , nice vacform with a fairly easy build , but not helped by my decision to fold the wings. Seemed to lose interest about half way through the build so it got left for about 12 months, but decided to get it finished , after all the Scimitar is one of my favourite aircraft. Finished in Halfords finest, EDSG over appliance white, with scratch built ladder and intake blanks. Aircraft represents a machine of 800 Sqd FAA in 1961.
  6. Morning all! It's only taken approximately three years to get to this stage, but my Dynavector Wyvern is finally finished. This was my first venture into the world of Vacform kits, and Dynavector did not disappoint. I chose this as by all accounts it is one of the best kits to use as an introduction to vac kits. The fit of the parts is absolutely superb, and once the necessary surface prep was done in order to get parts to match up, this went together with far less hassle than a lot of the injection moulded kits I've built. My build is by no means perfect, in terms of improvements I could'v
  7. Evening all! Inspired by the awesome work on here by Tom Probert on his magnificent Shackleton and then the Superfortress and Rich's B-17 I thought that I ought to take the plunge and have a go at the dark art that is a vacform kit. Armed with a bit of knowledge gleaned from t'interweb I decided to start on something fairly straight forward and having heard Dynavector are up there among the Rolls Royce of vacforms and the Wyvern is one of the easier of their kits to build, when one came up cheap on eBay it was a golden opportunity. By the way, apologies for the photos, they were taken on my
  8. Having been following the John & David Show over here, where the brave souls salvage the strangely shaped kit in 1:48 from TrumpyBoss, it set me to thinking. Do my Dynavector kits now stand a chance of getting built? After asking people's opinions, it appears they're pretty good compared to the competition, which is quite an achievement, considering the dearth of accurate information that has been quoted and re-quoted over the years - check out the thread linked above for more info. It's well worth the read Anyway - I've been suffering from the modelling doldrums somewhat lately, hav
  9. My first vacform kit, and it won't be my last- they're lots of fun to build! As far as fit went it was perfect- much better than the previous kit I made, an Airfix Buccaneer. It just took some black lines and a bit of care to get right. I did struggle a bit with the amount of parts that need to be scratch made though, but definately a good way to learn how to do it.
