  1. The instructions don’t mention it, but I did notice it on the paint guide. Then confirmed it on photos.
  2. Posted in the right forum this time! The latest release of the Airfix B-25C/D, with markings for an RAF aircraft. All painted with Mr. Paints, and a lot of weathering using oils. Hope you like it. b-25-41by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-44by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-47by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-48by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-49by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-52by Nigel Poole, on Flickr Nigel.
  3. Cheers guys. Britaholic., dump them and get the new Airfix offering. It will sav you a load of sleepless nights and profanities.
  4. The Hot off the press, well sort of. I finished it just before Christmas. Is Airfix's new 1:48 Bristol Blenheim Mk1. Can't really say a lot about the build as its for a future magazine article I'm afraid. Needless to say it's in keeping with Airfix's modern releases and I don't think you will be disappointed by it. Not a kit for beginners though, because of that massive greenhouse like canopy. Onto the pics.

    Just finished Airfix's 1/72 Bf-110 C-2/C-4. Not my best, in fact its probably my worst kit in the last five years. No fault of Airfix though. I lost interest, at about the half way stage. In the end I was just glad to get it off the bench. I'm going to have to re-order some more master barrels, as two out of the four fell into the fuselage. I may well do some weathering, etc. When i fit them, if I can bothered. The decals are by EagleCals, and depict an aircraft of Erganzungs Schalcht Gruppe. There's also numerous mistakes I made which I won't go into, out of embarrassment. All paints are Mr Paint. Thanks for looking. Nige.
  8. Well the second build of the year is complete. Really enjoyed this little jewel by Airfix and it has really wet my appetite for the 1:48 one. The only aftermarket parts were some Eduard belts and Pavla resin exhausts. All the markings, less the small stencils are painted on. Another small mod, was to cut out the wingtip lights, and replace them with pieces of clear spruce. This kit has sat on the shelf unloved for some time, and is the first to be targeted in operation clear the shelf. Thanks for looking. Nige

    Cheers Si, I scoured the net for months looking at pictures of Fitter's, and came to the conclusion, that they were very well looked after. The only ones that looked that they been sandblasted before flight were those kept in outdoor museums. Nige

    Cheers everyone. In fact, I enjoyed it that much, that I’m considering doing the two seater as well.

    Been a while since I posted here. But this kit seems so controversial, I thought I would post it up for you all to see. After all that’s been said about this kit, I’m going to nail my colours to the mast and say I like it, and enjoyed building it. It’s not a perfect kit and needs some modelling input to get it right. But I enjoy that sort of thing. For me it’s not so much about the destination, but the journey there. There’s a lot of aftermarket in the finished kit. Eduard internal, and external etched sets. Master Barrels pitots, static wick discharges and cannon barrels. HAD shock cone and wheels. Neomega ejection seat and front wheel well. Which was originally intended for the old Kopro kit. The only thing that is a necessity out of that lot, is the shock cone. The other parts were down to personal preference, and wanting to enhance the level of detail. It was all topped off with a dollop of Mr. Paint. Enjoy Nige.
