  3. Following my S6B below, here is another of my collection of racing planes. Well OK, the only other one - this is another of my plans for a themed collection that didn't quite happen. De Havilland's DH.88s were built for the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race and this is the green one, G-ACSR. It came fourth but was then used to carry the film of the race back to Blighty, breaking the round trip record in the process. Of course its Airfix's very old 1/72 kit and its another mould that should be taken out and shot. The fit is poor, the sprues are flash city, the nacelles were short shot and didn't fit, the shape isn't right - I could go on. OK I am going on. The raised panel lines were re-scribed, including fuel tank caps, and everything filled and sanded a lot, including the fabric flying surfaces. As usual I put in a basic cockpit, but you can't see it as the canopy is so thick. I added the nose landing light from a bit of polished clear sprue, other builds have used costume jewellery for the same purpose. The decals fought me all the way and I omitted the mass balances because they just looked too awful. Paint is classic Humbrol Brunswick green, which was also laid on thick to create the absent canopy frames. They should be finer but never mind. I didn't weather it, its more a desk ornament than a representation of the real thing. Looks like the propellor hubs have been knocked askew as well (again) - this happens a lot as there is not much nacelle for them to sit on. Another old classic that could do with a modern going over?

  5. Hi, That was finished last year, never got around taking pictures of it. First got the kit for practicing a bit, but I think I got crazy trying to get a smooth finish with the brush... I'm quite happy with the finish Gallery IMG_7587.jpg by scorder666, on Flickr IMG_7595.jpg by scorder666, on Flickr IMG_7591.jpg by scorder666, on Flickr IMG_7592.jpg by scorder666, on Flickr scorder
