The Spine Booster Pack for my eagle is now complete. I think It has turned out quite well and it fits on to the Eagle spine perfectly. The finish is Halfords White Primer over coated with Halfords matt lacquer. Details are picked out with red-brown, gloss orange, extra dark sea grey and blue. Decals are some spares from the bit box and some specific markings were printed on white paper and glued in place and lacquered. I also used some Humbrol weathering powders to add a little dirt but not much. The Booster pack clipped on to the Eagles spine frame Eagle meet Eagle meet... er.. Volvo T5? Two generations of Eagle; the LEM of our first Moon Landing and the space:1999 Eagle. I added the Volvo to give some sense of real world scale. The Volvo is actually 1/43 scale; my eagle is somewhere between 1/43 and 1/48 and the LEM is 1/48. I wonder what the Astronauts are thinking... Hope you like it.

I appreciate that NASCAR projects aren't too plentiful here on Britmodeller, but I thought I'd post my current build anyway: Started this around eight weeks back, it's a typical Revell/Monogram late 1990's kit, with quite soft detail and thick plastic, a generic chassis/cage/suspension and engine, just the bodyshell, transparencies and cowl over the dashboard are unique. So here's where I began: With the air-dam glued in-place and filled/sanded, I sprayed a couple of coats of Xtracolour ADC Grey on the insides, then masked the window appertures and shot a coat of Tamiya acrylic grey primer straight from the rattle-can. I then rubbed that back with fine grade wet'n dry and lots of water so it was glassy smooth. I then took a new bottle of Tamiya acrylic lemon yellow, added a couple of tiny drops of orange to warm the tone a little and airbrushed three medium coats. A week later I rubbed it back again and applied to heavy cats of good old Humbrol Gloss-Cote: With that all done, it went into the cabinet to dry/cure and I made a start on the chassis/cage etc. (In the pics it's sitting on the rolling chassis of the Kellogg's Chevy I posted here a couple of weeks back). Stay tuned. Ian.
