    Practice makes perfect, mucka and you've got the colour right!
  3. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Hi all I've detailed up the airbox. My first attempt at the paper filter My fourth
  4. These 'types'; are they Props, Jets, Everything Else? As for what comes after 750, that's easy, divorce.

    It is its the graff spree yep this thing is enormous
  6. AMK 1/48 MiG-31BM/BSM B/BS Undercarriage set 88003-8-ZDC

    I've been and counted the personal stash but forgot what came after 750 so gave up and counted types in the stash instead. That was much easier, 3 (3.5 if you include the half built Dornier Do215 used as target practice for my airbrush)! Duncan B
  7. Jawa Sand Crawler - "OOODEEENI" ! (1/96 Randy Cooper resin kit)

    Hi Hatter thanks for the encouraging words - I'll check out the make of the pipe bender and let you know. It comes as a kit with 2 screws for fixing it down and 4 pins that allow different angles for different thickness materials. I bought it from a model railway exhibition earlier this year. Its very handy, takes only seconds to attach and detach from the bench, and like you say, it is a tool that could easily get a LOT of use - hence the extra pipework on my crawler. OOOOOOOOOOTEENI ! (or should I say, regards John) PS - that SSD of yours is now collecting dust - get it started ASAP !

    precisely Jockster - I'm loving making this a tad different than Lorne's original masterpiece - only the ultra keenies would spot the minor deviations I've made to give my own special touch. Like you say, this was the crawler that was edited out !

    Looks brilliant ken is that a 1/350 battleship in the background? If so that kit is huge!

    Looking very good Ken I think you’ve done a great job with that exhaust.
  11. Yesterday
  12. My apologies Duncan! Col., Duncan may be able to rent out something!
  13. AMK 1/48 MiG-31BM/BSM B/BS Undercarriage set 88003-8-ZDC

    What's all this nonsense? I don't have enough kits in my stash to be able to go lending them out, I haven't even got to the 1000 mark yet (I think, might have to check on that and get back to you!). Duncan B
  14. Pocher 1/4 ducati panigale

    Hi all here is the next bit the exhaust, let me tell you what a horrendous fit, had to use copious amounts of filler first really disappointing bit of the kit, Paul Koo suggests leaving the screws loose then adjusting the gaps by gradually tightening them whilst adjusting the gaps, well the best I managed to reduce it to was 2 mill for a kit of this price I think that is really bad. Anyway here it is with all the gaps filled. Not happy with the silver shields they look very plasticky (I know they actually are) will have to try and change that, I'm thinking of trying foil over them)
  15. Lend????? If Duncan’s lending I’m in!
  16. Good grief, what a monster! Fair shout John, that's another work of art! Yer gonna need a bigger house. As for the extra details, it doesn't necessarily have to be the Sand Crawler we see on the big screen, it'll be the one that didn't arrive on time for filming!
  17. Duncan should be able to lend you something!
  18. There was some word of the MiG-25 on 'the other place' before they started on the Tomcat and prior to the ICM one appearing. Perhaps it'll be next on their list. Good luck with finding a UK supplier Duncan as they appear to be doing great kits of interesting subjects. What!?! No! I only have something like 200 kits in the stash, what if I run out of things to build before then
  19. Jawa Sand Crawler - "OOODEEENI" ! (1/96 Randy Cooper resin kit)

    That looking really great, loving all the extras your adding.
  20. Jawa Sand Crawler - "OOODEEENI" ! (1/96 Randy Cooper resin kit)

    oh yeah - now THAT'S an update worth waiting for! Fantastic work John I love the extra pipe and plastic work. It's great to see you really make this your own whilst keeping well within the realm of SW technology likelihood. I also want one of those tools you have screwed onto your bench - presumably for bending brass etc? Where did you get it from? It looks like a tool I would get a LOT of use out of in the near future Looking forward to the next installment! Si

    opps - double post
  22. A naked Dragonfly

    Don't be sorry John - I miss so many threads unintentionally I could write a book that would rival War and Peace. This will be my entry for next year's Melbourne Expo along with the QM2 (If I ever get off my behind and finish it that is ). Jockster - mate - you really should get one of these kits - they have so much scope with paint work. I had so many ideas but had to settle on one. I know with a more skilled hand than little ol' me, this can be a master piece
  23. Eduard Mk. VIII Spitfire "Lonesome Polecat" - 1/48

    Very impressive! Great work!
  24. Revell 1:72 Snow Speeder

    Hip-flask, cigarettes, lighter, nope. that's a snow speeder I've just popped out of my pocket! excellent pocket sized and very affordable fun
  25. 1/32 Industria Mechanika Dragonfly - Naked

    stunning modelling - makes my big lumpy resin stuff seem quite insignificant I love this - what a great display and conversation piece
  26. Focke Wulf FW190A-4 Aftermarket

    I have wanted to do an open cowled FW190 for ages but didn't particularly like the detail in the old kit and always ended up buttoning it all up. I think now I can start planning again. Thanks for the review
