  1. Hi everyone. These are the build pictures I took as I built this kit. It is the new version of the Airfix kit as I heard that so many people had problems with the old kit. Overall I had no major problems though the hull was a little tricky but I glued it in stages. I have made the cabin section removable to show the interior and this was not too hard to do but forward planning is essential before going too far. I love the plastic that Airfix uses as is has a lot of flexibility and a softness that allows you to cut the thin rails without hearing that brittle sound as the part snaps.The decals were brilliant to work with as they were strong enough for plenty of sliding back and forth to get the correct position sorted. The one thing that would make this kit outstanding would be if Airfix had included a few crew members and I think that for a few pence extra they should think about this when they produce other kits of this scale. Thanks for viewing these pictures and I hope they help others as much as the many pictures I found on the Internet that helped me to see what I was getting into before starting this build. The finished pictures and a video can be found in the RFI section.
  2. Finished this with a few parts missing . Very fiddly painting and sticking all the clear parts round the cockpit.
  3. This is the Revell 1/83 Mayflower that I made quite a while ago (pre my adding lights to everything) but never got around to posting. It was all hand painted as I hadn't discovered airbrushes at the time. Hope you like it and thanks for viewing.
  4. Hi Everyone This is the Revell 1/225 HMS Victory that I made quite a while ago which was all hand painted as I hadn't discovered airbrushes at the time. Oh how I missed out! One of the few builds that I did not add lights to. Hope you like it and thanks for viewing.
  5. Hi For those who followed my build of this kit HERE I have now managed to get some pictures of the finished product. As with most of my builds I saw the chance of actually adding some lighting to the 3 large lanterns at the rear of the ship. It seemed a shame to waste the chance. Then I thought that I may as well add some kind of lighting to the inside. The lighting needed to look like flickering candles or flames and so I added some flickering LED's to create the atmosphere of drafty lower decks. I have added a video to show the lighting HERE. As a build, it was pretty intense with the rigging but with help from other members on here and a lot of patience I managed to get it looking semi ok. Thanks for looking in and I look forward to any comments
  6. Patrol Craft Fast (PCF), also known as Swift Boats, were all-aluminum, 50-foot (15 m) long, shallow-draft vessels operated in Vietnam primarilybby the United States Navy, Initially patrolling the coastal areas they later took to the interior waterways as part of the 'Brown-water Navy' where they carried out interdiction, counter insurgency, troop transport and special forces insertion. In total Eighty-four Mark I Swift boats served in Vietnam, with a further twenty reserved for training, however they are frequently overlooked in favour of their more heavily armed and warlike cousins the PBRs, Landing Ships and Monitors with whom they fought alongside. ..... The Brown Water Navy as a whole is rather overlooked in modelling terms, and the PCF is no exception despite it's distinguished service. As far as I'm aware the Revell kit is the only kit generally available and although being rather old (1967), quite basic (61 parts) and lacking in any type of interior detail it appears to be quite accurate and has some potential. .... For the princely sum of £20 inc p+p I now have 2 of these. I shall tackle one and hide the other for a possible future project (original civilian or demobbed perhaps)
  7. One of the things I'm missing from my practice builds is a boat or ship. - after several years with little building I allowed myself 10 before my self critique become self criticism and crying in a cupboard, I'm currently on #8 (i suppose #10 will have to be a choice between an AV or a car...) Don't fancy going back to tiny Sweeny 700 scale, nor even the less taxing 350s, so I make a shortlist of 72/48/35 kits that won't just the bank or be huuugggeee eg. Airfix MTB or Rescue launch (or Revell equivalents), Tamiya PBR, Revell PCF. Anyway today I spotted a nice online price for the PCF and am tempted. I know it's a old kit with basic internals and details but it's supposed to be a decent effort shapewise and easily upgraded even without using AM parts. WIPs and references are rather few and far apart though so I was hoping for pointers to decent articles and threads to shorten the search. ... Thx in Advance D.
  8. Been building this kit
  9. This is a little sideline project for when i need a change from planes. Bought from Modelzone in their sale for a very good price. I have been wanting one of these for a while but never had the cash , so this showed up at the right time. Im building it as mtb 234 because i like the mid blue camo. 234 had 3 rudders and an oerlikon gun mounted on the bow. The gun will be comming from accurate armour when i get some cash. I have followed the build of the 1/72 one in the new Airfix mag regarding the rudders , but i have seen others building the center one with a shaft the same length as the other two , so im not sure which is correct , if anyone know please let me know. Heres the scratch built rudder. Not perfect but good enough for me. It needs the control arm from the stb rudder adding yet.
