  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks Antti It was a work of love and I think it's my best model to date. So I'm quite pleased with it. But as always there are things I would like to improve on, but that will have to be for the next one.
  3. Your guess is as good as mine. You need to find good reference pics of the airframe in question. But if you decide to add the pod, I don't think anyone could say if it's wrong or not. So go for it. Looking forward seeing pics of your build.

    Monogram 1/48 Boeing B-29 Superfortress

    I have been mostly idle of late - I can't really explain why. I've tried a couple of other things but seem reluctant to actually finish anything this year. I've put the undercarriage and exhausts on this, but need to do some chalk pastel weathering: I have another Hellcat partly assembled - I've closed up the fuselage and assembled the wings and tail since: I thought about finishing this, but a large number of stupid fiddly bits convinced me to just leave it on the shelf of doom. In retrospect, choosing the wingfold option was a mistake. I hate models with folded wings so really should have seen this coming! I've been tinkering with this: I started butchering some plastic for another sub-assembly of brass. I managed to stab myself under a fingernail with a chisel doing this, so was not really in the mood to do more! The white plastic insert needed to dry properly too before being smoothed over.

    Hey!

    Not one but three welcomes, from the UK, to Britmodeller and back to the hobby. Enjoy your return!

    Lockheed Twins in civilian style

    Nice to see civilian subjects in the GB, although you'll obviously have your work cut out with these!

    Lockheed 12 Electra Junior.

    Nice choice Paul. If you drop Special Hobby an email via their website, they'll probably send you a replacement canopy FOC (they did for me last year). Excellent customer service!
  8. Good to see CA return. Going to wait for their next project, though.

    1/72 YF-105A Thunderchief Conversion

    You know the laws of modeling, by time you are ready to check the molds, you will stumble upon your lost canopies. At least I hope that is the case anyway. She looks gorgeous, I love how the panels have just enough color difference to add reality, an amazing job throughout. Anyone that only sees the finished product, won't believe how chopped up she was before the painting was done! It is a statement, what seems impossible, is possible! Looks great! Anthony

    "Hello, I'm Julian ..."

    Thanks - I'm pleased with how it came out, but blimey don't photos show up dodgy seams more than the naked eye? Thanks for having a vada

    Fujimi F1M Pete

    Nice job Mike, I don't think the interplane rigging is too thick I've got this kit in the stash, hope it turns out as nicely as yours Cheers, Stew
  13. Surprised that you haven't disappeared under a pile of sanding dust! Your perseverance is paying off. My Angel is a later casting, separate wings and intakes. Not as many bubbles, but some interesting joins to overcome. Great work.. Looking forward to watching this develop

    That "body" colour is really nice, is it some kind of bronze?

    Italeri 1:72 T-45 Goshawk

    I've got two Italeri T-45s squirrelled away, one of which at least is destined for a sheet of Draw decals CONA scheme (I like the blue tailed one. ) The other in a service scheme. @Creepy Pete, any chance of a scan of those improvements too. I know there is some work required on the wings leading edges. Steve.

    Tamiya 1/48 F-14A Tomcat

    A great model, but for my taste a bit to clean

    Excellent work, she is a beauty, so amazing model, well done mate

    Italeri 1:72 T-45 Goshawk

    Personally I'm still waiting for Italeri's promised repop of the T-45 so I can do the two CONA planes that Draw Decals does markings for. But it is taking forever for them to get around d to it.
