  1. The newest Mk.I kit with the fuel tank cover and landing gear issues. I had to add the padded headrest as per the photo, made from a piece of round sprue tree. Other than that, a great kit. This is WZ⦿H of 19 Squadron, Duxford, 4th May 1939. Innards were painted with Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. Masking tape harnesses. The bottom was painted with Tamiya XF-69 Nato Black and Vallejo Surface Primer – White. Note the long area of white that needed to be masked off and when painting was done and the tape removed, no paint lift. Upper colours were done with Tamiya XF-81 Dark Green 2 (RAF) and Mr. Hobby Aqueous H72 Dark Earth. Antenna is Uschi van der Rosten Super-fine thread From Da Webs
  2. Hello everybody... as some of you know Im a fan of Robert Stanford Tuck. Last year I decided to start building collections of aircraft based on my favorite pilots. I started a build for Josef Pips Priller first and recently started the second series of builds dedicated to R.S.Tuck. He for some reason has always struck me as the quintessential RAF pilot. My first build in the series was his Mk.Vb and was built for the recent Spitfire group build. I present to you one of his Mk.I Spitfires coded QJ*Z from 92 Squadron July 1940. To build this I used the 1/72 Airfix Mk.I and aftermarket code letters donated by another member from the Forum. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments, and or add thoughts. Feel free to peruse the build WIP or the Tuck build thread. Dennis
  3. Gentlemen, As a result of a combination of circumstances I am going to build a section of Spitfires, the Mk.I of course, which as eny fule no is the most perfectly beautiful of all the Spitfires and I will brook no argument on this. The aforementioned circumstances, on the offchance that you are interested, include (but are probably not limited to) the following: The BoB 75 Anniversary Group Build is looming large on the horizon and I have about 30 more suitable kits in the stash than I can reasonably expect to build in the allocated time period, so need to do some deck clearing; The Heller Bloch MB210 I am supposed to be building for the French Fancies Group Build is an unpleasant clunky sink-marked flashed monstrosity made out of plastic that does not so much separate from the sprue as explosively disconnect and frankly I need some displacement activity to avoid working on it; Although I built a fair number of the old-tool Airfix Spitfire Mk.I I have never built the 'new' tool one, and this is a bit of an oversight as it can barely be described as a 'new' tooling any more; The new Xtradecals BoB Spitfires sheet arrived yesterday and I am very nearly bursting to build some of the options on it, in the knowledge that there is a second set on the way and I will want to build a few of those as well... So with my intentions adequately justified - to myself at least - I selected these from the stash: ... along with the Xtradecals set and Eduard canopy masks: ... and these are the options I have chosen... P9323 ZDoF of 222 Squadron, RAF Hornchurch... ... X4593 UOoA of 266 Squadron, RAF Wittering, and RNoN (serial presumably overpainted) of 72 Squadron, RAF Leconfield, which was flown by Australian ace Des Sheen. I hope to build these in parallel and save myself a certain amount of work and will make a start later today. Cheers, Stew
  4. Good afternoon. I want to present their models for discussion and evaluation of the work done. 1/72 Airfix Spitfire Mk.I R6981 "Kiwi III" P/O Al Deere 15.08.1940. 1/72 TAMIYA Bf-109E-4/B Oberleutnant Heinz Ebeling Bf-109E W.Nr. 3740 “Yellow 3” 05.11.1940
  5. Hi all, with the new term fast approaching I was pleased to discover that when I popped into work today my Project Airfix order had arrived. I'm endeavouring to engage some of our more challenging students with a hobby. I'll be recording our students' progress on here, and as their confidence grows we may make a separate account for them to post their own work with. Hats off to Airfix for an affordable entry-level pack (£80 for 30 kits with paints, glues and brushes) which means that students from deprived backgrounds get a chance to try something new. I hope you'll all agree that this is a worthwhile venture and support us with our project (although I think even I can manage the old Mk.I spit!) Cheers, Mr. B.
