  1. Out of the box build Paints used - Tamiya Hi all, I am calling this highly recommended kit done. Yes, if you want to fill your swear box up in record time then this kit will help you achieve it! Poor instructions and some parts that had not a prayer of coming close to fitting made this a frustrating build at times. However, it's my first go at building a biplane and rigging one. I admit I used some wrapping wire with the insulation stripped off it to rig the model, not sure all of it looks in scale, but the kit had parts that also looked a little out of scale. Weirdly I would build another one of these kits, as I have learned a lot about how they go together and I fancy building the Airfix Tiger Moth in the future. In the movie the plane appears brand new, however at this scale; it needed a little weathering to stop the "toy like look". I have to thank the ghosts of Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen, who I am sure gave me the will power to complete this build. I have included some stills from the movie of the plane flying over the African landscape, I hope you enjoy your flight. Happy modelling.
  2. Hi all. I have just made a start on the old Frog/Novo DH60 Gypsy Moth in the green/silver colours of Amy Johnson's aircraft. My question is, what is the best match for the green of the fuselage? I have only managed to find mention of 'dark green' but this seems too dark in relation to pictures of the real thing. Any ideas?
  3. Hi all! After slowly getting back into modelling again last year I think I'm ready to to go public with a build. I hope I don't scare the horses!! For my debutante moment I've chosen to do a Frog 1/72 de Havilland DH.60G Gypsy Moth as flown by Amy Johnson on her record 1930 flight to Australia. The kit is rather old, it is numbered F227F and is bagged with a cardboard header card. The decals look slightly yellowed but in surprisingly good condition. Frog 1/72 DH 60G by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr Frog 1/72 DH 60G Header Card back by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr The parts have some flash , but cleaning them up should be relatively easy. Frog 1/72 DH 60G parts by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr Frog 1/72 DH 60G decals by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr As I'm a pretty basic builder, and not really hankering after the latest and greatest aftermarket or tools I use pretty simple tools and the basic (usually Humbrol) paints, with rattle cans but mostly with a hairy stick. Frog 1/72 DH 60G build tools by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr Frog 1/72 DH 60G paint and stuff by Dennis Mulhall, on Flickr I use tube cement and plain old tweezers, although I do have a little hand held manual drill bit and a few drills. Sorry for the quality of the photos, but I used my phone because I couldn't be bothered getting out my professional cameras, lenses, flash units, and tripod. That is my OTHER hobby. This will be a rather slow build as I've just gone back to university to pursue another degree and feeling the pressure at the moment. But this is what keeps me sane (along with the wonderful MrsTheBear and DaughterTheBear.) Although I'm pretty much an OOB builder I will be creating a blank for the front cockpit opening, and using the propeller from another one of these done by a company I've never heard of, ABC Argelfarb or some such, to mount on the side of the fuselage as seen on the photos of this machine just after it landed in Darwin. Until the first update, Happy Modelling!!
