  1. You'd have to sell a lung to be able to afford to buy one - I guess you'd be looking at $200+ minimum!
  2. I'm not a fan of weathering in 1/72 - it's far too easy to overdo itand completely mess things up...
  3. I wasn't sure about the lights to be honest - I know that nowadays they're red in colour but couldn't find any decent pics of earlier a/c... The flat is Windsor & Newton Galeria Medium Matt Varnish - water based and lays down quite nicely although it is a little rough.
  4. He's already seen it... I think he was too focused on his "OT" F-16 to notice...
  5. Well, first one finished... F-16C 85-1412 from the 512th TFS, 86th TFW
  6. Well, my 2nd F-16 turned out to be the first one finished... not too bad but not my best... See the finished builds thread for more pics...
  7. Darren - are these in 1/72 as well as 1/48th?
  8. We did! It's a little dark, but highly appropriate - last year, the theme was F-111s :)
  9. More Falcons than you can shake a stick at! 2012 Cosford USAF SIG Display
  10. Yep, all of my models tend to be freehand. There are a couple of places where I should have gone back and tidied up, but I wanted to get it finished...
  11. No - it's definitely 3!! The dark green doesn't stand out well in these pictures - hopefully a coat of matt varnish will help!
  12. I've never been able to get it smooth enough to satisfy me, so I tend to put a couple of coats of gloss to even things out. One day I may even get the hang of this modelling lark!
  13. Well, the result of a productive few evenings... A coat of gloss and it'll be ready for matt varnish and final assembly :)
  14. I finally managed to move forward with the builds and the A-10 is now painted. A couple of coats of gloss varnish and it'll be ready for decalling...
  15. Progress...I've resprayed the dark grey - looking quite good now... Once I sort out the nose probe and paint the radome it'll be time for a coat of gloss and some decals :)
