  1. Amazing work, can't wait to see you pull it all together.
  2. That is fantastic, and the lighting is spot-on. The paint job, perfect. Very nice!
  3. This is awesome - I think the Red Arrow was also my first model kit, a long time ago! Have fun!
  4. The trainer colour looks great. How did you do the wash?
  5. Lots of great links there Steven - exactly what I was looking for, thank you!
  6. I use Windex (blue window-cleaner) for Tamiya acrylics. It doesn't dry as flat as mixing them with alcohol, but your mileage may vary.
  7. Number 2 is the only way to capture the detail, since number 1 certainly won't, and will almost 100% guaranteed damage the original. With number 2, depending on the size, fibreglass may even be an option. But as you say, it's going to get expensive quickly, and if you can find the original, it's probably a much more cost effective idea.
  8. I usually apply a dab of Future over the top of the first decal after it's dry, and the second decal merges nicely.
  9. Such a long time since I've done any WWI stuff but… I'd be in on a group build!
  10. Thanks Motty, I wish I was there. Must have been a visual treat!
  11. You show-off chuck - but that natural metal finish is absolutely stunning.
  12. Not sure where you heard this (probably here) but in many cases it's simply not true. Low manufacturing runs make models expensive. Typically the research is the smallest part of startup costs!
  13. Let me echo that - amazing rigging work!
  14. I have three little girls. Between them they have destroyed many of my 'masterpieces'. The latest was a 1/8 Honda racing bike which I had been labouring over. A couple of pieces snapped off. I'll never get them how they should be, but hopefully no one will notice but me...
  15. I've used them for this precise purpose. They are inexpensive and mixed with the right medium (I've only tried resin so far) they produce a very interesting finish, often seen in one-off and resin jewellery. I'm going to have to try your technique though, it's produced a great result.
  16. Wow, one of my favourite choppers! How's this project going?
  17. I have one I bought around 20 years ago (I was 20). Still use it...
  18. Wow, what a beautiful thing to do to a weapon of war. They look perfect! I wonder if they have stabilisers on the bottom though, maybe a shallow keel?
  19. Thanks for that link! That Felixstowe is an amazing build - I remember the WIP thread...
  20. Wow, one of my favourite jets. Great work!
  21. Thanks folks. I knew I had the name wrong! Whilst I do like his watch blog (I make my own tools like he does, so it's of special interest!), sadly I don't see any modelling on there, and I don't seem to be able to find his fabulous WIP posts using search on here.
  22. I built one of these many years ago. A very satisfying kit to finish, although I did have some trouble getting the big clear canopy to fit properly. Looking forward to seeing your finished...
  23. This is all rather epic. Well done sir, well done!
  24. Such a great aircraft, and such a great build. Beautiful work!
