  1. Thanks chaps. It was mostly built in a couple of days(can't remember if it was a weekend), but ballsing the canopy up, and some of the paint peeling off, added a few more days. There's definitely fun in keeping it simple
  2. My sister got me this starter set for Christmas and I decided to build it as the Airfix gods intended, with the included paint. The kit pitot tube was huge, so I used a piece of brass instead. I also added a gunsight, which you can kind of see, and the aerial wire. The paint was very thick, so I thinned it with some Pledge and it went on fairly well; though it was very easy to damage.

  11. I'm sure I read that somewhere too.
  12. Oh that's a shame. You can't capillary action some superglue into the crack?
  13. Mine is the 1/72 Airfix Nimrod I bought off @RWG686 the other year. Probably going to do it as XW666 'The Beast' Really want to do it justice though, so I'm honing my skills(I hope).
