  1. Hi All, While I have this burst of energy, I thought I would try to complete as many as I could... Another one that I have resurrected from the pile-of-doom. This Is the original Tamiya XJR-9. I have has this one for a very long time. the box top: The engine: And the rear suspension, primed:
  2. Hi All, This is another one that I bought a while back (Late 90's, early 00's?) and decided that I need to get going with it again. First, the box art: Brutally Handsome (Hotel California). The engine had been built a while ago, and primed, but not painted. I sprayed the entire built engine (as far as it had got) in Zero paints aluminium: On small components, like the suspension above, I like to paint them matt-black, then aluminium and other metallic colours. The metallic colours come up really well painted over matt black. It's a trick I learnt from my son who was at one time really into Warhammer. There they paint the figures black, the paint the metallic armour over that. After I had sprayed the engine aluminium, I then painted the transmission with the called-out colours The 'box' at the back should be woven carbon fibre, but I have never tried to use the decals, so I stuck with satin black. Maybe the next model, or the next, or the next ... Here's the engine with the decals on the cam covers. Everything about this car is brutal. A six litre V-12 producing 800 bhp (I think). Must have sounded amazing. More to come, Thanks for looking. Cheers, Alan.
  3. Nearly finished Lancaster in the STGB barring weathering etc and had a look through stash to start next Stumbled across the 206 I'd forgotten I'd started before Christmas that I had to tidy away to make room, so I thought I might as well finish it off first Before anyone mentions the floorpan and interior etc should be silver/aluminium, I remembered that as soon as I'd glued everything in place , so it is what it is
  4. I'm building the big Hellcat...it really is BIG. The kit is progressing well, I'm at the point of building the wings. My plan is to have the guns and ammunition panel open on one wing: I assume this would only happen with the wing down in the flying position. QUESTION: Was the Hellcat able to have one wing folded, the other extended, or did they fold/unfold together? I have found lots of photos of folded wings and unfolded wings, but so far not one with one folded and one unfolded. Can anyone help with an answer?
  5. Afternoon all, I've just finished the Airfix 1/24th. Typhoon, which I purchased at Perth this year for the princely sum of £50. Here's some pictures for you to gawp/marvel/laugh (delete as appropriate) at.

  6. Here's some pics of a big scale Airfix Mk. I I'm building. I have the basic paint on, and the decals have just been finished. Next up will be weathering and so forth. Paint is Tamiya Sky, RAF Dark Green 2 and Gunze Dark Earth. It's a good kit to build, though it does show it's age. I am building this on commission, and I ordered the recent Airfix boxing. I'd forgotten I have an old 70s era boxing of this kit. About halfway through the build, I "discovered" that old boxing, and compared parts. It is amazing to see what time does to a mold. Still, quite builadable and quite fun. (Although I am hoping Airfix decides to do an updated 1/24th scale Spitfire someday!) I added a few aftermarket parts- a seat, control column and undercarriage lever from Gray Matter Figures. (http://www.greymatterfigures.com/) The rest is OOB. It's built gear up, as the customer wants it to hang from his ceiling. To facilitate this, I split the rubber tires in half, and it fit pretty nicely.
  7. Hi guys, New year new kit... almost. I have wanted this kit for a long time, in fact I've wanted a large scale Buccaneer for years. I've decided to make a go of it along side my other 'large' kits, The Hudson, Il-76/82VKP etc so it gives me a huge variation in what I'm doing. Huge thanks to Andy and Stuart for this kit, it's brilliant and it's going to give me hours (years) of fun! I won't bore you with everything you get in the box, as no doubt you've seen it on Andys brilliant thread. If you do want to see, check out my Flickr here!
