  1. Hi all and here's my first entry. Notwithstanding what it says on the box, this is actually a resin kit. I'll hopefully be starting within a couple of months . Cheers
  2. This will be my second entry (again, expect a late start!). Cheers
  3. Hi all. My entry will be this 1/200 scale Avro Bison - a white metal kit produced by the late and lamented Shed Models. The Bison was a purpose built fleet spotter/reconnaissance aircraft that served initially with the RAF and then with the FAA, from 1922 to 1929. Some were shore based, whilst others were ship borne. All were incredibly ugly! My second-hand kit has a few issues, with some minor damage and missing parts. It also lacks its instruction sheet, just to make it harder to identify which parts have gone AWOL . On the plus side though, it has decals! I'm particularly looking forward to this one Cheers
  4. Hi all. Having just completed my high-flying 1/200 Bristol 138, I've remembered that I also have another 1930's record breaker in my 1/200 kit stash. I wasn't planning to build it this year, but on reflection, if not now, when? It's the Fairey Long Range Monoplane which was developed specifically to break the world non-stop flight distance record. Apparently, it was also known as the Postal Aircraft (to hide its true purpose). Two aircraft were built, J9479 (Monoplane I), and later K1991 (Monoplane II). Sadly, in 1929 J9479 crashed in Tunis during a record attempt (killing both the crew members), but in February 1933 K1991 established a new record by flying from Cranwell to Walvis Bay, Namibia, a distance of 5410 miles (8540 km). Like my Bristol 138, I bought this kit second-hand. Unlike the Bristol though, the Fairey is un-started and comes with a decent set of decals . Hopefully it should be an easy one to complete by next weekend. According to Scalemates, this is one of only two kits produced of the Fairey LR Monoplane, the other being an old 1/72 vac-form produced by Airframe. Cheers
  5. Hi all. I've just noticed that the GB deadline has been extended, so thought I might shamelessly exploit this opportunity to build another of my plentiful supply of rather tatty, second-hand 1/200 tiddlers. This one is the Bristol 138, which was built in the 1930s as a high altitude research aircraft. It ended up setting a total of nine altitude records, peaking at 53,937 ft (16,440m), on 30th June 1937. I'm sure that some of you will remember the FROG kit of this aircraft, but mine is a white metal kit, produced in the UK by Shed Models (unfortunately, now defunct). Mine has been started by a previous owner having added the engine and u/c. However, the latter is in a poor state - it's damaged and one side is longer than the other . It'll need to be re-done. There is a decal sheet but it's of poor quality and creased. Some of the shapes though, should come in useful as templates. I suppose I'd better get on with it!
  6. Hi all. With my earlier dreams of building an ultra-fragile, 3D-printed, CRJ-1000 now shattered (quite literally), I feel that I've learnt my lesson. So this time around I've chosen a kit that's made from solid metal ⚒️. It's a 1/200 scale DH9A kit, which was produced in Norfolk by a gentleman called Chris Sayer, trading as Shed Models. It's a beautiful little thing, representing the top end of quality white metal kits. Sadly, Chris passed away in 2019. In October 1920, a group of enthusiastic Canadian aviators completed the first air crossing of the nation, from Halifax to Vancouver. The flight was undertaken as a relay, using different aircraft for each leg. The final leg (Winnipeg to Vancouver), was flown using an ex-RAF DH9A, which is to be the subject of my build. As far as I can see, the aircraft still carried it's original RAF scheme, but to which had been added the Canadian civil registration G-CYAJ. Here's a link to a nice photograph of the plane and here's another to an article on the flight. The kit includes decals for RAF, RAAF, Soviet and Afghan aircraft, so I should be OK for the roundels at least. I'll probably try to add a little bit of rigging, but will draw the line at trying to replicate those spoked wheels Cheers
