  1. These are three builds I began over the last couple of years, all of which halted at that stage in a build I like to call 'putting off dealing with the @%&##*% clear bits', which is something I really do not much like to do. They are beginning to stare at me accusingly, and I really ought to bite the bullet and at least proceed with the canopies, especially since I have the write-ups done for two of them.... This is an old Matchbox Wellesley, one of the first second-hand kits I bought (from Mr. Garrity at Rare Plane Detective). It is marked as an early service mach
  2. Like many other people, I'm finding myself at home quite a bit more than usual so have decided to get some of my older models finished. I'm starting with this one, the 1/48 Airfix Buccaneer. It's been a challenge at times, but is building into a respectable model. Here's the fuselage, assembled sections and the bits still on the sprue: A major sanding session is next on the list of things to do...
  3. Hello mates! I hope you like my little XT-4 No. 1 TRDI jet. This is the old kit bought 1989 i think/believe. I started 2006, then it went directly to the Shelf of Doom . 2011 i made a restart, two pilots ( the short one and the very short one) and detailing. Then it went strait to the Cabinet of Doom and Roll Out is today 2017! Cheers!
  4. Many years ago - well 2012 to be exact I started to build this kit for a GB on another site (UAMF to be precise) however part way through I discovered a major problem with the kit I'd bought of eBay and gave up the build at that time. Ever since its been languishing on the shelf of doom until I did some sorting out last week and picked this up again. I'd bought some aftermarket stuff to go with it to improve some parts of what is essentially a very basic kit I'd bought the resin cockpit set that was intended for the Trumpeter kit. This meant in
  5. Hi All, Well, after getting THIS thing finished.... I felt i needed a break from Corsairs. So, off from the Shelf of Doom comes the 72nd scale Trumpeter Wyvern S.4. A seemingly nice kit with delicately molded surface detail and somewhat surpringly, rather accurate, so i'm told. Here's the state of play as of today. This kit last saw daylight back in i think 2008... Construction, as they say, started with the cockpit, then quickly turned to the massive contra rotating propeller. Whereupon all motivation vanished and the project hit a brick wall. Fortunately nothing had been glued togeth
  6. When I started tallying up the kits built this year, I was surprised at my output. I did more than a kit a month average. That means the stash will be finished in about 25 years if I don't buy another kit again; ever, never; not going to happen. In October I decided to get off of my rear and actually complete some kits that had been on my shelf of doom. Five of them were done. Here is the output month by month. JANUARY (slow month) 2011 Tiger Meet Tornado 1/144 Revell FEBRUARY Zero (Baa Baa Black Sheep Series) Revell 1/32 Less than a Tenner Group Build F9F Panther 1/48 AMT MAR
  7. Hello All, This year, rather than launching back into my current project, I've been drawn into finishing some old stuff that's been hanging around for too long: Airfix 1/72 Old Spitfire IX (started 2010) Loved it. 100% OOB. Humbrol 116/106/64/90. Old decals needed tidying up to deal with out-of-register issues but settled down beautifully. Walkways and lettering done by black pen, with silver pen for chipping. It almost looks like a Spitfire from this angle! Airfix 1/72 new Bf110C (started 2011) The undercarriage, bombs and tanks are beautifully moulded, in sharp contrast to the trenche
