'Results obtained.' Avro Anson Mk.1 N9945

Recommended Posts

I've been following your WIP with interest and am seriously impressed by the end result.  The interior detail is just amazing.  The idea of these two airmen plying their lonely trade is inspirational and I am very keen to build a model of this aircraft as a result of seeing your finished kit although, it's fair to say, mine won't be anything like as good!

Great result Tony, good fun working on these old kits isn't it (The word 'fun' of course, is open to interpretation)...I'm sure Hal Bufton's son will be chuffed to bits.

Splendid end result old chap. You've done them proud and given us many hours of entertainment into the bargain.

Have a nice long lie down. Right, that's long enough! Next!

Good lord!  I've had this kit, and I'm mightily impressed.

Thank you sir. I think so many of us must have had this kit at some stage (I first built it as a 10 year old back in the mid 70s).

Merci mon General. There is indeed something quite delicious about retrofitting past glories for a longer life.

I'm going to keep the box and instructions on the shelf out of pure nostalgia for 1975: if you hold the box up close to your ear you can actually hear Helen Reddy faintly singing 'Angie Baby'...

I love it when a master creates a superb model out of an old "outdated" un-buildable kit. Great job!    👍

 

Cheers,

Bill

That is just fabulous Tony, it was quite a journey & I'm glad to have been along for most of it, thanks for sharing it with us. I guess the rest of the gang should get an honorable mention too, it wouldn't be the same without that crowd of rag tag & bob tail miscreants you seem to attract. :D Bless them all. :) 

Steve.

Well, that's a jaw dropper if I ever saw one!

 

And ample proof that to be a true modeller, a sado-masochistic streak is a great asset… 😉

 

Awesome modelling.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

I was looking for the WIP title thinking he hasn't posted it yet and found it on you WIP. 

I have to say this is an absolutely amazing, stunning, wonderful model of a lovely Aircraft. You have done the real aircraft total justice and I am sure that the brave pilot's son will be chuffed too.

The WIP thread has been entertaining and educational.

Congratulations on your excellent model.

All the best

Chris

Thanks Bill. Despite the allure of more modern toolings, these older kits continue to charm and challenge most satisfyingly.

I'd like to say that I was a bad influence on the chaps but we both know that it's the complete opposite don't we? :laugh:

Kind of you Joachim. My thanks to you for that.

And you're right - where's the fun in merely sticking things together when you can spend weeks mangling brute matter into tiny details? 😄

Astonishing detail for a 1/72 build!

You are well deserving of all this praise for such an excellent outcome.

I’ve been unconscionably slow to add my words of appreciation to the RFI of this epic build Tony.  P’raps because I’ve used up all the superlatives I know on the WIP; or more likely cos I’m a lazy s*d.....

 

Either way - but continuing in the lazy tradition - I’m gonna adopt Navy Bird’s words - master modeller - outdated, unbuildable kit - superb model; most particularly the latter.

 

There I think that’s done it? and no new superlatives were abused in the production of this post......

She’s a stunner Tony. 18 months has done her (and you) the world of good. Bravo sir. The outdoor shots are beautiful making me want to wait even longer now to do my Hurri RFI in the spring. 🤩 Hope you are having a great Christmas. I’ll pounce on your next thread when it starts. Will you be using kit parts this time? 🤣

 

All the best.

 

Johnny.

Late as usual - my excuse is that I was away over the Christmas new year period and have not had much time or energy since.

 

Wonderful and informative build thread and even more wonderful result. 18 months well spent IMHO.
