  1. Thanks everybody, glad you liked it. Mr. Happy the greys are the new Tamiya lacquers and the green AK Real Color. Nige.
  2. Well it's finally finished. Took me a while because I purchased a 3D printer at the start of the build, so kept designing and printing parts to improve the base kit. The base kit is the Hasegawa TA-4J Skyhawk in 1:48. It was converted to the OA-4M model by the use of Phase Hangar's conversion set. I also used their ejection seats. It was topped off with painted markings and some decals from the Furball decal sheet, Lo Viz Devil Dog Scooters (sheet 48-010). The sheet is currently out of production. But Furball Aero Design announced yesterday that they are rereleasing it in the
  3. Cheers Whiskey. Theres a slight issue with the fit of the lower centre wing section, but other than that it’s great. it my first ZM kit, but won’t be the last.
  4. Well finished after three months or so of work. Part one of a three part article was published in this months MAI magazine. It's pretty much out of the box apart from, seat harness, resin wheels and brass turned barrels.Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed building it. Nigel.
  5. First one for the decade. Kinetic's all new F-104G Starfighter in 1/48. The only things not from the box are the seat and pitot. The main camouflage is Mr. Paint, applied by airbrush freehand. The national markings and serial numbers are painted on using masks I made myself. Just need the F-104J to hit the UK now. Hope you like it. Nige.
  6. Cheers guys. It went together great and if you haven’t tried the new Tamiya lacquer paints I highly recommend them. I thinks there’s 74 or so in the range at the moment. But they will be expanding them far more over the coming months.

  8. The instructions don’t mention it, but I did notice it on the paint guide. Then confirmed it on photos.
  9. 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.

  10. Cheers guys. Britaholic., dump them and get the new Airfix offering. It will sav you a load of sleepless nights and profanities.
  11. 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
  15. 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

    Thanks Bolschoj it’s the 1/48th, Kitty Hawk rendition.

    SU-17 M4

    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 bar
  21. Thanks guys, it was a joy to build. And definitely raises the bar, when it comes to 1:72 kits. Nige.
  22. First finish of year for me, and for the SAM magazine. A very enjoyable build of a rare bird, that started the Hind legend off. This is the Zvezda kit in 1:72. Nige.
  23. Cheers Tiger, I did a search of the web last night and tried to match the colours with the paints I have. But to no avail, so it looks like I'm mixing my own colours up. Nige.
  24. I'm currently building Zvedva's MI-24a Hind and planned to do it as a Soviet bird circa 1979 when it was attached to the Moscow Military Brigade. The colour call out on the instructions recommend model master 1712 Field Green and 1713 Medium Green. I used these colours but they just merge into one, as the colours are so similar. Which doesn't seem right compared to photos. Can anybody help an idiot? Nige.
