  1. Hi you all. A long time since I was here last time. It was in 2017 when the heavies GB was on. I didn't compleat the model then. The decals where not good. But now it's done. I got new decals from Sky models that are nice. More pictures (some the same as in the GB forum) from the build can be seen here. I'm no master at weathering, so there is hardly any weathering on the model. Just some exhaust streaks from the engines. But they faded alot after the clear coat. After I took the pictures I notesed that I had forgot to paint the nav. lights and the ends on the propelars. I have fixed that since. I have also included some pictures of a diorama idea. The base is from Noy's Miniatures. I'm also going to use the Airfix RAF Bomber re-supply set, figures from Arfix, Revell and CMK. The ACE Matador is from the old Airfix RAF refueling set. I have also scratchbuilt another working platform to have on the other side of the engine. The engine is from CMK
  2. Hi. I, as Winnie and Stefan above, also want to comlpleat a helicopter I started building for the SAR GB in 2015. Most of the small detailing and scrachbuilding is done. So I'm hoping that I'll be able to compleat it in this GB. Isn't that ok? Of course I will not count me in the raffle consideration. Best regards Grétar W. G.
  3. Hi all. Is anybody still checking out this GB? If so, here are some pictures of my Lanc. I was hoping I could compleat it before the deadline. But didn't make it. The kits decals are VERY thick. So they didn't sit nor stick well to the model. I'm going to order decals from Hannants as soon as they are back in stock. If the decals would have been OK then I would probaly have compleated it on the last day. At least about 95 % I have masked the model and it's ready for the green colour. The top half is ready. The painting's done and a little weathering. I'm no master of that. The decals are very thick and don't sit well. Even though I used decal softner. I´m going to order decals from Hannants when they in stock again. I hope they come soon. Does anybody know how the decals are from Skymodels? An idea for a diorama. I have Airfix refuel kit and the bomber re-supply kit from Airfix. the engine will be on the aircraft, not on the ground. ;) I hope I'll be able to compleat it soon. Best regards Grétar W. G.
  4. Well, there is some progress on my Lanc. I hope I'll compleat it before the deadline. Here are is the fuselage and the wings ready for painting. The airscoops from Quickboost and a lot of putty by the engine nacelles. The firewall for the left inner engine. The original guns and turret parts with the ones from Quickboost and the scratchbuild rear turret A close up of the turret. It's not 100% correct, but I don't care. It looks a lot better than the original! The main landing gears. Not perfect either. At last the first coat of paint I did today. Humbroll 29, Dark Earth. I´m going to paint it before I put the wings on. It'll be muce easier doing it that way. Best regards. Grétar W. G.
