  1. Ferocious Frankie up for sale

    How much MOT has it got? Looking to replace my ancient Astra. Not sure how I'll carry my fishing gear in it though. Parking not a problem. I work on an airfield.
  2. A big thanks to DrichC for the Xtracolor paints.

    Cheers Rich

    Nice evil looking bird you have there.
  4. AMT 1/72 Ju88C-4

    It looks sinister.
  5. Revell 1/48 Bf110G-4 Nightfighter

    Excellent build and a nice paint scheme out of the ordinary.
  6. Heller 1/72 Nord 2501 Noratlas

    Bloody Hell, that was quick! Lovely looking beast.
  7. Airfix1/48 Sea Hurricane Mk.1b

    Nice build. I've done the Italeri one and more recently the Airfix one and had a wing to fuselage issue under the nose. Had to blend in what would have been a big old step but the rest of the join was fine. Did you have any short shot parts at all? I had the seat and the arrestor hook were affected on mine.
  8. Not really a WIP but slow progress towards a restored mojo

    I don't know how I manage it but my ancient Xtracolors are touch dry in a few hours. I've found if I thin them with white spirit (Bartoline being my preferred brand) they dry really quickly for an enamel. The smell doesn't bother me in any way. After all, I've spent quite a bit of time in messdecks on 'Pusser's Greys.'

    I prefer enamels for mottles and very much everything else nowadays. I use them on a low pressure setting and get in close. Other methods are available however.

    Just finish it, I want to see it. You should see the 'stirs' I cause with certain individuals when I do Hurricane builds 'elsewhere.'
  11. Slowwww doowwwn. I can't keep up!
  12. Academy 1/72 OV-10A Bronco

    Academy decals and the need to stuff weight where you can.... But it is a good little kit.
  13. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.viii

    Second Michelle's comment. However making appearances at shows is a bit 'Brigadoony' for me in my current incarnation/location/etc.
  14. Hobbyboss 1/72 F/A-18D Hornet

    Well I think it looks fine from here. I spent some time on USS Harry S Truman in 2012 and saw a lot of these up close and personal as well as some other types.

    You should the ones on my car. Much needed replacements required this weekend methinks. Cheers all for the comments. Much appreciated.
