The list is too long for this Title field

Recommended Posts

As the title says I have a host of builds to finish and this is the ideal place to do it.

 

1. Complete the Red Arrows from the Best of British GB

2. Engines and undercarriage of a Revell 787 in BA Colour scheme

3. Heritage 1:48 Glider

4. Heritage SA Bulldog

5. Revell GR7/9 Harrier as a BAE test jet.

6. A host of Spitfires in 72nd to get the airbrushing started!

 

That should be enough to start with.

cheers

Graham

Too true,

My main worry is that even KUTA starts sooner than I thought. Off the top of my head?

 

Shall I just move my float-plane GB entry straight across and gain a month.

Roden DC7c that never even got out of the box for the airliners GB

Airfix Mini that went nowhere in the Made in Britain GB

And then there's a Tamiya Mustang that the children brought me yonks ago and really, really deserves to make progress

First up the 787. How it started this GB

The engines needed constructing

and complete

And finally all joined up with the wheels on and the leading edge devices painted.

Finally she has moved from the shelf of shame to the display cabinet. It's taken way too long and I have learnt loads before tackling some other big BA jets. I'm glad it's done but it looks very toy like to me. Next time need to fit the windscreen and sand prior to painting and also spray the leading edges before applying the decals. The decals were kindly made by a colleague on here and I think over time have deteriorated and so started to run when used so may need some more varnish(?) sprayed over them for the 777-2 and 300.(Not a complaint about the quality of the decals more my tardiness in using them). And I also need to get some of the basic decals on for the kits , hold door text etc. (Unfortunately I passed them onto someone else when I got the BA ones made, I'll try and get some more from Revell for the 777's. Next up the Red Arrows...onwards and upwards!

Next up the Red Arrows from Best of British. They basically needed the smoke tanks aerials and finishing touches aswell as some weathering..onto the latest pics

They are getting there, next up tidy up the painting, add the probes to the noses and varnish them all before some weathering! (In fairness these were very close to finished before starting this)

 

cheers

Now all is calming down a chance to update the progress, first the Jayhawk is getting close to priming

The reds are now ready for the gallery after a little dirtying up!

The KUTA mojo is flowing and another is off the shelf. Here is the Heritage Grob Viking (1:48). It only required the canopy attaching and the framework painted so not a big task.......but one that had stalled the project
