Beautiful build and finish, as usual. Excellent photography, as usual. But I must admit that I cringe every time I see a photo of somebody holding a newly finished, superior model with bare fingers… Yuck! Kind regards, Joachim
Dave, Great finish, can't go wrong with a sharks teeth grinning at you. Have an old ESCI kit with tons of extras lined up in a future build. Hope that turns out half as great as yours. Happy Modelling Ron VanDerwarker
18 01 2020 Hi all: Just a quick question: I was in local hobby shop and I was browsing through the Airfix selection and, being of a certain advanced age, I couldn't remember which boxings were the new tools released in last few years an which were the older boxings from before Hornby. Is there anywhere where there exists a list of all the Airfix new tool kits? Thanks in advance Liam
Some of the interior parts are painted and glued in:
18 01 2020 Hey all, I have to say it: Normally I would look to see the positives in the worst but that last episode of Dr. Who in the 'Pleasure Dome' has to be one of the worst they've made using any of the Doctors. It tried really hard to be exciting and logical. And Jodie was excellent but now seems to be limited to running around excitedly, being initially puzzled, then figuring stuff out, more running around and then a message delivered with a sledgehammer. They've got to do better. Give the crew better scripts, better directors and please God!!! better editors please!! Liam
Correct James: B. Mk. 2 span 120 feet, K. Mk. 2 span 117 feet, so 18 inches off each tip. Like many aspects of the Victor 2 tanker conversion one driver was to screw as much fatigue life out of the jets as possible so, to that end, the wing tips were cropped to reduce the bending moment on them (many of the “club foot” fittings at the wing roots of B. Mk. 2s had suffered badly, particularly in low-level ops and those that had been subjected to the simulated Blue Steel motor failure “toss bombing” simulation). The alternative, as proposed by Handley Page, of additional wingtip tanks disappeared into history with the company on the grounds of cost and development time as the K. Mk. 1s were rapidly approaching the end of their flying lives.
Day #2 : Last Night I added the rough details to the two figures used old credit card pieces to make a remote for the tug Pilot Mask hose is actually a Guitar String Looks good so far... Now to tackle today.... See ya in a few hours...
I spent 2hs today repainting the entire fuselage. It was worth it since the model resembles the real aircraft a bit more. I omitted mottling the tail, since there seems to be no such thing on the real aircraft.
And it should be awesome! Only one that I get down here is Ottakringer's (spelling, yeh?). Any others you'd suggest? Cheers, Werner. About to be tipsy on IPAs here. Just finished off my second pint - two more pints to go (hic!). I'll save the front compressor face and most of what follows behind it, as it's really useless once the fuselages are glued together. Will just use the kit parts up to the flame holder. Those Amigo Models bits look darn good. Remember that there should be a couple milimetres recess between the engine shrowd and the exhaust ring. The exhaust ring protrudes from the engine shrowd in the kit - dunno how it is with "they're" Amigo Models bits Wish there was a stronger option for the main landing gear tho. Build's looking weekend, Werner, my mate! Yeh, it is... (hold my beer) Unc2
