OK - That's me done with my Armstrong Whitworth Meteor (Matchbox 1:72).

 

Thanks to our hosts, Pat and Dave for helping me find my modelling mojo with the fun GB. Much appreciated :happy:

 

Cheers

PK-023 : One Hawker Tempest Mk. II/Mk. VI. Back from the dead.

 

Back from the dead indeed. This Tempest has been reborn. Hallelujah!

An old built model, taken apart, stripped down, reassembled, repainted, new decals and finally a photoshoot to let it show off its new look a bit.

I ran out of things to do on the Panther this afternoon. I guess that means it's done.

 

A straight out the box build with nothing added other than a printed paper carrier deck for it to sit on. It went together well and the decals were a joy. Here's the build thread...

 

 

 

And here's the Gallery shots...

And one with a bit of Photoshop assistance. Undercarriage taken out, along with the bit of tube the model was sat on. A few filters added and the image colour removed. There's a picture of the initial set up in the build thread.

The third finished build from me, the Cat. No. PK-017 : Messerschmitt Bf 109E in the Rumanian scheme.

A build out of nowhere. Done because it was sat in front of me, looking a bit sorry for itself. I think I enjoyed the build all the more for it being completely unplanned.
