    Glasgow IPMS Model Show, 20th October

    I was hoping to make this one but supposed to be on-call for work
  2. After a morning helping set up the Aberdeen Modellers Society show on Saturday I got to do some shopping... Can't recall who I got the Modeldecal sheet from but the new Colourcoats paint sets and thinners were from BlackMike Models and I think I'm correct in saying the sets are exclusive from there as Sovereign Hobbies don't show them on their own website. Both the West German Luftwaffe Norm76 and Su-27 Pale Blue Scheme sets along with the decal sheet will be set aside for future projects but hopefully I'll get a chance to try the thinners sooner.

    It's been a busy time for BlackMike Models

    Any idea when the new Trumpeter Tu-128 is due to arrive Duncan and how much they are? That's potentially next on my shopping list so long as is doesn't suffer from some massive shape issues.

    Having seen these for real last night at the club meeting I can honestly say they look stunning. Great work Duncan.

    Mitsubishi Zero Panel Lines

    Yes they did. From what I can recall the panel joins ran from the panel that goes around the fuselage behind the end of the canopy to the panel that runs around ahead of the tail.

    Hobby Boss 1/48 F4F-4 Wildcat with a twist

    I'm sure Mrs. B appreciates you doing those jobs around the house while avoiding finishing a model. Our loss is her gain.

    Hobby Boss 1/48 F4F-4 Wildcat with a twist

    Certainly looks good Duncan. Yes it's very flat but authentic with it according to your references so all good.

    Tamiya A6M2b Zero (1:72)

    This one seems to be going together great for you. The perfect combination of a quality kit and good modelling skills.

    Airfix 1/72 Phantom FG.1 *Second one finished*

    You've been 2/3rds through painting one of your Phantoms for as long as I've known you Duncan

    Blenheim Mk 1.

    I think there's no single colour that suits those parts when in use and subjected to the constant cycles of heat as there's a wide range of shades and tones over them but I'd say, having seen your paintwork so far, I've every confidence in your ability to make them look great and agree using some steel to add more variation is the best way to go.

    Tidy job Chris

    Blenheim Mk 1.

    Lovely paintwork Nige. My only suggestion is you add a bit more steel to the exhaust collector ring and pipes as they were not typically that colour on the real machines. Airfix seem to have a fixation for perpetrating this myth.

    Aberdeen Modellers Society Model Show Sept 15th

    Apart from when wrestling with all the bargain hunters at the BlackMike Models stand of course.

    Revell 1/48 F-86D Sabre Dog

    The teeth do suit a Sabre particularly well but it's a pity the curvatures of the model in that area don't suit those decals. Sure you'll master it though Jamie.
  15. Nah there's still time for a big yellow bird on the tail
