  1. Just received my IPMS Magazine and included is an excellent 24 paged illustrated history of all the colour schemes and marking variations of the Gnats and Hawks used since 1964. What a reference source!!
  2. RAF Red Arrows Hawk - 50th Display Season 1:72 Airfix - Starter set My colleague Paul reviewed the new tooled Hawk back in July in this thread, the plastic for this kit is exactly the same. The change is that in this kit decals are provided for the markings celebrating 50 years of the Red Arrows. These decals include the new tail design. It is noted the box now says that this is an officially licenced kit by the RAF, a sad indictment of the times we live in! Decals The new decal sheet has the markings for the 50th Anv design tail, and the serial numbers to build any aircraft from the team. As is usual for Airfix they are produced by Cartograf and look excellent. The white markings look dense enough to use over bright red paint. Conclusion Its a RED ARROW of course we want it. The model will look good in these markings. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  3. Hi A few shots from up on Beachy Head on Saturday. The two Lancasters looked magnificent:
  4. Hi there Anyone know if it's possible to get hold of a Red Arrows Dye Truck in 1/72 or 1/32? Watching the documentary now and fancy trying a little scene with one. Thanks Steve
  5. Does anyone know if someone has produced a set of decals for the new Red Arrows 50th Anniversary livery for the 1/32 Revell Red Arrows Hawk? I've got one in the stash and fancy giving it a go this year. Thanks in anticipation! Andrew
  6. Hi Everyone, Here is my biggest completed project of 2014 so far. This is completed build number 8 for 2014. This is a Revell Red Arrows Hawk T.1A painted using Humbrol Acrylic Signal Red paint. I enjoyed this build as it was one of the most challenging for a long time. Anyway onto the pictures. I have just realised whilst looking at these photos that I have left the fuselage serial numbers off, so will have to correct that. Anyway comments welcome. Thanks as always for looking. Rick
  7. This is another project which I will be starting as a fill in project when my 2 main projects are drying as this model will be painted using Revell Enamel paints which I have already got for a previous Red Arrow I bought but which was too small. Box Art Kit Sprues The kit comes on 3 or more sprues, all made from red plastic except from some clear parts. However they all seem quite large. More progress when I actually open the bags and start working on the kit.
  8. Hi everyone, Here is my WIP thread for my entry into the Less than a Tenner Group Build, Project Pink Arrow. I'd like to give you all some background to this project before posting anything. In November 2012, my niece and her family emigrated to Australia, however before she went my wife and I took her to the Shoreham Airshow for our last day out with her. Her favourite aircraft was the pink aircraft from the SWIP display team (shown below). Ever since she moved we have talked via Skype and she always likes to see my models (especially the Vulcan I built), so I have decided to make a model for her birthday (which is small enough that my step mum can take it on the plane for me in July). I selected an Airfix 1:72 RAF Red Arrows Gnat Starter set for the kit and because I know she will want the kit to be painted pink, have gone with Tamiya X-17 Pink acrylic paint. I guess you can call this one a What If build i.e. What if the painters of the Red Arrows planes picked the wrong colour for one of the planes when they were spraying them, thus the Pink Arrow was born. This kit is going to be a complete one off. I have decided that I will create a Limited Edition certificate for it along with a document to send with it to show my niece, how I went about the project and what it started out like etc. Here is the kit : Airfix built Red Arrow : Sprues : This kit will be the simplest build I have built for a very long time and as such probably won't take a long time for me to do. Thanks very much for looking. Excuse the fact that I have to paint this one pink. Rick
  9. Revealed today. Anybody else notice on the Hannants page for Hawks, airfix have another release for the Hawk scheduled in July , with a separate box number - A02005B. I wonder if this is the reason? To their credit, airfix have updated their retooled hawk at least twice since release. The first one was to improve (though not a heck of a lot) the main u/c doors. The second was much more major, including the wing fences moulded onto the wings, slight alterations to the seats, one piece canopy, and better all-round fit. This latter kit I am now buying in droves on my quest to build all the RAF airframes. So I can only assume the release this year is for the new scheme? The other release of this kit, in the black RAF or Finnish schemes, doesn't seem to be the final release either as the lower wing has out hard point holes in them too. One wonders what else they have up their sleeves?! I often wonder if airfix would sell me a larger amount of hawks unboxed, just the bare plastic, for a smaller amount ; bulk buy discount!!
  10. Hi there, The first aircraft based lighting kit is now in development. Designed to be used with the Revell 1/32 Hawk T1 kit to give front light, wing tip warning and 2 No strobes. First test with kit. Thoughts and comments welcome. Cheers, Warren
  11. Here are a couple of my images from air displays. It's quite tricky to catch the right moment! The Blades Aerobatics Team And of course, the Red Arrows
  12. Hi All The red arrows have been at Norwich International Airport this week. They flew up from Weymouth for the Clacton Air Show. They arrived on Wednesday lunchtime and have been in and out every day till they left yesterday. Typically iv'e been working everyday this week, so i have missed all the flyby's. But i managed to see them leaving on Friday, although i managed to miss one or two of them...... Also we had one of the black ones in a few weeks back. :-) Enjoy! XX264 This one is actually still at Norwich, it had an Engine problem. XX323 XX325 XX266 XX310 XX263 XX321 XX321 That's all for now, i will upload some of my other photos of Norwich over the next couple weeks, there's only a couple hundred lol Thanks Bradley
  13. Hi Everyone, I just thought I would share some of my photos from today's visit to the Eastbourne Airshow. These photos were taken on a pocket digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix L25, so unfortunately the quality of the photos is not as good as if I was using a larger digital camera. I intend to purchase a better quality digital SLR with a variety of lenses etc, if anyone has any recommendations for me, please feel free to comment. Anyway, onto the photos. The photos of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Red Arrows are my favourites out of the photos I got. Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight - All 3 aircraft BBMF - Lancaster Chinook :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- The Red Arrows :- I didn't get any photos of the Typhoon unfortunately and the Sea King and Lynx AH-7 cancelled their displays and didn't show, which annoyed me no end. Several of the other displays were only watched by me rather than photographed as I was walking around the trade stalls etc at the time they were on. Full album is available on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.199430156890707.1073741836.100004711722357&type=1&l=3d34ba4505 Thanks for looking, I hope you like the photos even though they are not of the quality most photos on here are. Cheers, Rick
  14. Hi there I wanted to try something a little different with the photos I took at Fairford. While on holiday, I started to have a play around with Windows Moviemaker and used it to create an animated slideshow of my favourite pictures. The finished film - complete with AC/DC soundtrack (switch on your PC speakers!) - can be viewed on YouTube. Click on the link below: Or search on YouTube for RIAT 2012 rocks to AC/DC. All aerial shots were taken with a Nikon F4 300mm lens. For the first time I managed to get some crossover shots of the Breitling display team and the Red Arrows. Cheers Richard C
