Hello All, All kits except for the nice new ones are shockingly old kits, or sometimes shocking old kits... All painting is brush with Humbrol/Revell acrylics except where stated. A Grace Models solid wood aeroplane, started by my dear late Dad somewhere in the early 1940's, finished by me in January: Then, as if for contrast, the new Airfix Spitfire FMk22, brush painted in Revell Aqua Silver: Nice kit once you have scraped down under the back of the wing root so it actually fits. Next up, a Frog Blenheim 1 from the shelf of shame (actually the shelf of mild embarrassment because it's less than a year), lightly converted to a Finnish version with skis: Nice kit and fun build, from a Revell re-pop. Then this whole helicopter thing started. I should get therapy. Airfix Old Sea King from an old mould when it fitted together well, as "Old 66": Starfighter decals but my own stencilled "66"s. Watch out for that photo later... I bought an Airfix F-5A Freedom Fighter from a man at the Cosford/Shropsire model show simply because I remember it was such a terrible kit: It still fought me all the way but I was ready for it this time! Silver from AK Interactive True Metal paste - weird stuff but good. Academy Mustang III - fell together, lovely kit, made a plunge mould canopy for the sliding bit: Frog Wessex, updated and detailed but a fabulous basic kit even after 50 years: Aftermarket decals were harmed during the making of this kit. RCR short run Breda 65: Good old Airfix PE-2, with quite a lot of scribing and upgrading: The ancient Revell Fw190, seemingly made out of sugar crystals, the plastic was that brittle: And for the Vignette GB I converted my photo of Apollo 11 into a scratch built model: An Airfix P-47, lightly detailed but mainly OOB: So I'm still hoping to get my Matchbox Privateer over the line, and also a little Christmas stressbuster project... Have a great break! Well, I had a sneaky 1/48 Inpact (Lindbergh/Round2 rebox) Bleriot on the go over Christmas as well as the Privateer. The Bleriot finished first, despite the mad amounts of rigging (mainly stretched sprue), a pilot figure and my first go at home-made wire wheels: Regards, Adrian
