  1. Very nice work !, lovley kit and your showing it who’s boss :)
  2. Awsome Video Mish and what a fine selection of models on show
  3. Luck I will need it haha. and great start. Yep looking at it is the safest way forward. However this WILL be built. I cant wait to start hopefully soon as possible.
  4. Well I likes drop of that and I also likes spitcant have enough so I'll keep a look out for that. my current stash of vacs are piling up. welsh = Nimrod, Valiant, Victor, vulcan, Canberra, hunter. cant remeber the manufacture but = Avro 707c HP115 nova planes, rareplanes, formaplane vulcan. of these the Nimrod and Canberra look the easiest to practice on. I don't want to screw them up but there is only one way to learn. so far I've cut the two fuselage halves of the welsh vulcan about a year ago and they don't seem to want to mate at the same place all the way around so that is disheartening but I won't be beat. Oddly enough it seems smaller is harder and larger easier weirdly where these Vac are concerned maybe I'm wrong but ill have ago at a few and maybe pick up a second copy in case I screw one. cheers Rob
  5. Hey Bill. Many thanks for the welcome to the site. Good to hear from you. I have never built a Vacform in my life so I hope all goes well. Perhaps I'll incorporate my smaller welsh one into this too as a warm up for this big beast. all the best Rob
  6. I will check them out they look a lovely build. I'll have to make sure I got my head around the difference in assembly process though.
  7. Well it's been a while since I did a GB and I'm certainly down for this one. I have no idea what I will build but nearly all my kits are RAF and it would be great to take part. Perhaps a Victor or Valiant , or a Jindvik either way out my name down
  8. Well I have never built one so I know how you feel but I keep getting told they are not that bad. Trouble is the box usually says "for the advanced modeller only" etc. Which is a bit misleading. Should just say read instructions carefully perhaps. Glad your on board hopefully it goes well and might inspire you to have a go at one. Some lovely vac kits out there. Shame not to make them. Well I sure hope this one is rewarding. Was it this kit that there was a little niggle with as I notice the evidence of wooden mounting blocks as this one has had all the complex twists and contours of the vulcan molded in. Very impressive. Just hope it builds well. Its seems to have had some care put in judging by the very well written instructions and drawings that come with it. The drawings will be useful whatever Perhaps I could scratch one from them Thanks very much for that info I will bear it in mind. My thinking of the primer is it would allow me to see where I am sanding too. But I get what you mean about the pen line. I just didnt want to use a permanent marker as that stuff you cant paint over it soaks through. Is it just an ordinary felt I use ? Cheers Rob Well I am glad its not that then but that kit looks very buildable at least that way you can scribe your own details or simply draw them on. Cheers for the info Welcome and get us a drink would you Cheers Rob
  9. Thanks for the excellent tutorial there and your wonderful Valiant that's also one I have on the stash. I don't know why but there is something about vacforms I love and even when completed they have a different presence to them somehow. Cheers Rob
  10. Somewhere there is it's gonna need some tempting out the plastic seems quite tough good to have you on board
  11. Thabks for the tip there I was going to try that but by spraying each part with primer first so I can see better what I'm working with and when I snap away the white will appear. Same thing really but will make it easier on the eyes. Feel like I'm gonna go snow blind looking at this much white plastic. Cheers Rob
  12. Never seen one before but I want to make one and this is lovely what a cool aircraft
  13. excellent build and a gorgeous subject
  14. Well Its a new forum, I like a challenge and I thought this kit would be something different from the norm and give us all something to chew on. Its a very rare kit too I hear. so I hope I dont wreck it. Cheers Rob
