  1. Yeah, it is a WHIF or IMO a "should've been" You should buy one - it's a great kit - despite the negative reviews. I had a very slight warping issue with one of the wings and the tail but some boiling water over the top will fix that. I will say though that it's not small. You're lucky that your wife actually would want you to buy one - I've never heard anyone say that ever. I have 2 left over tail decals should you want to paint it in this scheme
  2. Hi guys This is my second to last project for a while before I take a much needed modelling break. I've had this in the unfinished pile for ages and decided to get it done. It was originally going to be in the RAF 20th Anniversary scheme but I got tired of looking at BOG, so I decided to liven it up somewhat into this. I went with the Landor scheme as I thought it would suit it nicely. I used a custom mix of paints and the decals are a mix of Draw Decals for the BA writing, 26 Decals fir the windows and a friend of mine did up the tail logo from an image I found. Kit very kindly offered to do it for me, however, my other friend jumped in and completed them for me I had to do the doors myself using a custom mask based on the dimensions of the 26 set (British Caledonia). They aren't the best but they'll do Anyways, enough talking, here it is - my Landor VC-10: That's it for now, but thanks for looking Si
  3. Thanks guys I think my next build will be more interesting for you - I hope
  4. thanks guys Yes, the F-35 was never a pretty bird. Hopefully, I get some mojo back soon. My SD will be all the more finished for it if I do
  5. hey guys I have been playing around with this F-35 for a few weeks now in between another project I have been tinkering on which will also soon be finished. I've often thought the F-35 was pretty ugly and so decided that I may have to do something about that. I'm not sure it's as pretty as it could be, but I am happy with it I've reversed the wings and made them out of sheet styrene. I added some canards because canards are cool and reversed the tail fins I also added some body panels which you can't really see under the paint. The decals are from an F-15 kit I had lying around except the roundels which I painted on It was just a fun project to help try lift my stymied modelling mood of late. Anyways, tell me what you think - good or bad thanks for looking guys Si
  6. That's gorgeous! Those windows look awesome but it's the wings that are the biggest draw card for me - that pant work is fantastic and the dropped flaps, slats and so on look great Looking forward to seeing more airliners from you John
  7. I have pretty much given up looking for an exact match (excluding Xtracolour as no one here sells it and the last time I tried it I hated the way the paint performed) and have just made up my own custom mix of paints. Seems to have come out OK but I will leave that for you to decide when I put pics of my project up in the coming weeks
  8. Well, I think I got the blue sussed but not the grey. I shall keep looking
  9. I'm sure this has been asked a million times before elsewhere but I just can't seem to find the answers What colours did BA use for that particular scheme? Is it light Grey, Red and Royal Blue? Who makes the closest match with paints? thanks in advance
  10. thanks Richard I just used Tamiya Black from a rattle can into the airbrush. Nice and easy with no polishing involved Si
  11. LOL - sorry bro - I have been some what side tracked of late. Once I get back on Monday, I am hoping to pick it up again. I have taken some shots of the start of the sidewalls but it's not exciting.
  12. thanks guys I realised that I forgot to add the exhaust tips to the sides which I made from squished brass tube and look good. I'll retake some pics later
  13. Hi guys As a side project to my Star Destroyer, I have been building Revell's C-7R for a bit of a change. However, I didn't go down the yellow road, I went down the black road. Thankfully, I didn't have any issues getting my body to fit on or have any interference in the engine and the hood areas. I am painfully aware of the paint bleed at the rear and the other finish issues it has - I will try to fix that up soon. The rear wing is also slightly off which is of course something I fixed AFTER I took the photos. Opps. I took a couple of shots to show the interior before it went in as you don't get to see it all now Well, that's it. It was a fun little side project and I'm glad I did it. It looks like a Corvette and to me, that's what matters Thanks for looking Si
  14. That was how I got my start in the detailing world when I began by copying a Japanese modeller called Yatasith and his amazing Venator. Whilst I d generally do my own thing these days, as you say, every now and then a build will pop up and it inspires me to give what they did a go. I think that's why I have a large stash and not enough time or space to do any of them
  15. thanks guys. I'm sorry I haven't updated this lately - I have been working on a couple of other projects and will return to this again soon
