  1. A complete repaint of my previous attempt to model this kit using both heads from inside the kit contents. The previous paint scheme left the sharks looking more like the colour of dolphins. thanks for looking in
  2. No one here gets out alive.... The now hard to find 1/18 Great White Shark & Diver Diorama model from Pegasus Hobbies, turned into a diorama with a bit of a difference to get the most from the kit boxes contents as opposed to having to waste the unused alternative choice of head posture. The kit is supplied to be modelled as the shark and diver/cage as 2 separate free standing standalone pieces, using a choice of snapping jaw head or dormant jaw head. A few alterations to the diver and cage to get the blood splattering reminder of the might, power and aggression of these amazing beasts right up the top of the food chain.
  3. Picked up at Telford last year for £30, here is the vinyl and poly combination kit of the 1/18 Great white Shark and Diver / diving cage model. It is a fine model and a bit of a refresher to work on in-between the sci-fi stuff I have out on the bench. My intended final model will utilise both the optional heads, as the below pictures explain. I expect to have to go through at least 3 stages of filling and sanding/priming, however these photos only run through to the second stage of filling. The diver is rubber and was boiled for 5 mins and then wired into his new leg pose and had his arms cut, manipulated and filled into the new arm pose. The spare head will be used as shown, poking up from within the cage flesh chewing fun bye for now - John
  4. In the framework of its new "Paper Tigers" serie, Prop&Jet is to release a 1/72nd meyko-Gurko " Shark " (Draft 1938) - paper project - resin kit Sources: https://www.facebook.com/pg/PropJet-475396205882045/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1341761962578794 https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1341761982578792&id=475396205882045 Ромейко-Гурко "Акула" (проект 1938) Prop&Jet 1/72 серия "Бумажные Тигры" IMO a waste of time. They're enough real obscure aircraft waiting for a decent kit. V.P.
  5. Hello All, For a long time I've been pottering along with a Frog-spawn Blackburn Shark in the background of my other projects, and I thought I'd bring it to the front of the bench this weekend. It's the Modelcraft re-pop: For a spawn, the moulding isn't too bad (although the struts needed a fair bit of un-warping and there are some short shots on the more delicate parts) and the decal sheet is nice, including an extra Canadian example (503). The outer rings of the roundels are a touch too narrow, but I will be using them. If I can find some matching paint I may paint a larger circle before applying them. For reasons that escape me, I have four Frog/spawn Blackburn Sharks and three Westland Wallaces in my stash. Not quite sure how that happened, but it's a good thing I like English inter-war biplanes! As you can see from the picture above, the cockpit detailing consists of a classic Frog plain floor with some comfy-looking chairs for the pilot and observer I have already cleaned up the struts and stuck together the wings, and I've replaced the flat moulded-in engine with something a bit more realistic. The wing struts needed a lot of cleaning up and test fitting, and I did it twice before I was happy enough. I'm going for wings folded on this one to hide the tragically thick trailing edges, which I will thin before assembly next time. I decided to busy-up the cockpit with some stretched sprue and card. I am working from the pictures of the "Canadian Wings" book on the Shark, which are the only pictures of the interior that I have seen. They show the cockpit of a target towing version, so some of the brackets may be for storing drogues! However, it looks busy now, so that's good enough for me. Thanks for looking, Adrian
  6. Good afternoon colleagues. One of my early operations. But the model is seldom built by modellers. Therefore decided to show. Blackburn "Shark" II K5609 №684, the 821Squadron, aircraft carrier HMS "Courageous" 1936.
