  1. My second Vignette is to balance the books as it were. Called "the day before" it depicts Pips Prillers aircraft undergoing servicing while Priller himself nicks the groundcrews coffee. Priller, was one of only two German aircraft to make an appearance over the Allied beachhead on D Day. the second was his wingman. I had this idea after scoring an old boxing of the 1/32 Hasegawa 190 for £2.99. The figures are the Verlinden set as is the aircraft detail set. The planking is made up of coffee stirrers.
  2. Hi Folks, I have been neglecting my presence on ARC of late as work and real life got in the way of my modelling time, however i thought i'd share two builds i recently completed for the Telford IPMS. These were part of the 32 sig stand who's theme was (loosely) the 70th anniversary of D Day sO I started two projects. 1st is "Solar bolt" and experiment using a cheap hobby solar panel and motor. I wanted to depict a P47 at the point of take off but wanted something different in that I wanted the prop to turn to "liven" the scene hence i bought a mico motor which comes with a small solar panel and by using the stand as a circuit the prop turns whenever sunlight hits the panel. Good idea but as it spends most of its time on a shelf indoors, perhaps batteries were the way to go, anyhow some photos. The finished article and one during construction showing proof of concept and the driver part 2 to follow
  3. lovely lovely a10 related stuff. That is outstanding!
  4. This kit was purchased as a leaving present for a colleague of mine who is an ex Royal Marine Commando and was carried into the 2003 Iraq conflict on board Bravo November on the first night. For those of you unfamiliar with the Chinook if you Google "chinook Bravo November" you will find it a particularly historical, and regarded as lucky aircraft. Anyhow The build is based around trumpeters CH47D kit with added Eduard troop seats and cobbled together figures from a variety of sources. Many of the details have been scratch built. The purists would be able to drive the proverbial coach and horses through this build in terms of accuracy and dare I say it, scale. For example things like the IR receivers, flare dispensers various lumps bumps and bulges, are very much "Guesstimated" from photos Iv'e collected and roughly scaled up / down as needed. The actual equipment hanging off the sides may not be totally accurate and iv'e totally omitted the external winch, However I do know that when BN was initially deployed to Iraq this wasn't fitted, neither were the Massive dust filters on the engines. I have scratch built the bumps and bulges using Miliput, plastic card, copper wire and leftover resin offcuts. The M134's are Legend's superb resin kits, The M60 provided by Spike 7451 from Britmodeller. She was painted with Humbrol 86 then washed with a mix of Humbrol 86 and revell 16 a, light yellow brown. I was aiming for a dusty work worn look and believe me that is exactly what I had up to the point of sealing her with Citadel Purity seal which dumbed down the dusty look a little too much for my liking. Superb decals were supplied by Paul at Parkes682Decals. they went on well and settled down beautifully considering im using Klear as a setting agent. Anyhow on with the show. Oh and the walkway decals are far too bright. If there is a next time I will be spraying them!!!! Overall I just hope you folks think I have done such a historic bird as Bravo November the justice she deserves.
  5. Although I never met or conversed with Matt to any great extent, I do know he was one of the shining lights in the modelling community. I always read his threads with anticipation around his insider knowledge and modelling skills to boot. A VERY sad loss and so young! my thoughts and condolences go to his family and friends at this difficult time. R.I.P
  6. Shot in the dark here, but does anyone have a Trumpeter Flanker UB they would want to trade for a single seater? MAY do a cash adujstment on account of the ub being a "newer" kit.
  7. Folks, I dont know if its is of interest, but This Link contains some shot I took at Bruntingthorpe in May last year when the LPG kindly opened its doors to allow full access to their lovely Lightnings. Indeed 728 well and truly had her clothes off. Hope they provide some useful references and would it be worth making this a sticky?
  8. I echo everything that has been said before.....Beautiful, simply beautiful.
  9. Jason, you can happily delete the OLD file without ill effects on Windows 7. It is a copy of the Windows XP installation which is, for want of a better term, incompatible with win 7. Win 7 is based on Vista architecture and Vista itself was a totally new O/s (with some boring exceptions) with little in common with Win XP. SO delete away and enjoy your 90Gb of space freely!
  10. Thats great news, Get well soon bud Best wishes to Clif and all his friends and family.
