  1. Hi all, The first time I decided to create a yearbook here. Still modest output with 5 models completed but that is the highest number ever for me!!! The first one was the Israeli F-16I in 1/72. Kinetic kit. I started it back in early 2019 but the construction was not really fast. I got it ready for painting by the end of 2019 so winter of 2020 was paint job and then quite long-lasting decalling and final touches so that the model was finished in May. The next one was Jet Provost by Sword in The Poachers livery. Started in late 2019 and pretty quickly (for
  2. Its been 45 years since I spent any time modelling so I thought I would start with a couple of the latest Airfix 1/72 Spitfires after all they should be quite easy, shouldn't they? I decided on a One up one Down for each of the Marks, and attempted my first open cockpit, All four are brush painted and finished with a Matte lacquer, I also used some Decal fix for the first time. I am sure I will look back on this post in many years to come and realise just how many mistakes and poor detailing I have made with these Spitfires and where I could have spent more time getting thing
  3. Can you have too many Spitfires? The conventional wisdom is no, but I wonder… Since returning to modelling I have built 1/72 Spitfires from AZ, Airfix, Eduard, KP, Revell and Frog, four of them already this year (out of eight completions in 2018 so far). There are three needing MU attention for Cat C repair: 2x Airfix 1x Revell The stash contains quite a few just in 1/72: 1x Academy 17x Airfix 2x Aeroclub conversion fuselages (okay that knocks out two of the others in theory) 5x AZ 10x Eduard 3x Heller 5x KP
  4. Hello again everyone Next up we have some Spitfires.... Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk 1, X4561 QJ*B 92 Sqn RAF. Next up we have the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire MK 1, R6800 LZ*N, 66 Sqn RAF. Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk IXe, MJ250 UF*Q 601, Sqn RAF. More to follow. Cheers all Iain Link to Pt.1
  5. There appear to be two books out right now on the Spitfire dive-bombing offensive against V-2 rockets. I'm trying to figure out which one is right for me (as the kids say) and I was hoping that anyone who's read either or both of them would be willing to weigh in on what they thought of 'em. Spitfire Dive Bombers versus the V-2, by Bill Simpson, which is 258 pages or Operation Big Ben, by Craig Cabell, which is rather shorter at 176 pages. If anyone has any input, I'd be ever so grateful. Thanks!
  6. Hi chaps, I thought I'd show some recent finishes completed for a Spitfire-related GB on another forum. All were hand-brushed with Xtracrylix paint, over a coat of Halford's primer and finished with Games Workshop "Purity Seal" satin varnish. Firstly, the 1/72nd Hasegawa Mk VIII, finished as a machine from 457 Sqn RAAF in 1945. Decals from Almark, I think: Then we move onto the Fujimi Spit XIVe low back in the markings of 41 Sqn RAF, again in 1945. Decals from Freightdog: Finally, we have the Sword Spit IXe, finished as a "fighter bomber" from 66Sqn in late 1944. The underwing
  7. I seem to have got myself confused despite reading Camo and Markings - Paul Lucas on Page 8 there are 4 proposed schemes - A,B, C and D On Page 91 he refers to the A scheme for p/o McKnight's Hurricane (P2961). This is what I have always understood to be the A scheme the Dark Earth "U" in the centre of the wing is on the Starboard side and the opposite is true for the B scheme, being on the Port wing. This is in contradiction with page 8. Further, I have understood the rule to be that even numbered aircraft were painted in the A scheme and Odd Numbered aircraft were panted in the B scheme. Th
  8. I don't know if many on here read Eduard's monthly mag, but in the March edition there are plenty of Spitfires and a article on the Merlin. What I know about Spitfires I could write on the back of a stamp, and I've got no real urge to start learning! So I don't know if the said articles are any good. But though some on here would find it worth a read. http://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/InfoEduard/archive/2015/info-eduard-2015-03EN.pdf Tim.
  9. Hi there, Finally completed my Spitfire collection, 'nuf said. Pr.XIX Lf.IXe Mk.IXc Mk.Vb Mk.Ia Lf.XVIe Lf.XIVe Lf.XIVe Lf.XIVe Lf.XVIe As is probably quite clear, my favourite mark is the XIVe. The front row are all bubble tops. Ben.
  10. Here's all the modelling I've done so far for 2012, minus a few binned failures (AZ Spitfire Vb with horribly askew landing gear, some others) and a Whif (USN Sea Hawk). I expect to finish a Merlin and hopefully a fast jet before the arrival of the new year, but this is probably pretty representative of my work as a whole. Please excuse the quality of the photos, I use my phone camera, and please excuse the quality of the models as well.
