  1. Cheers everybody, glad you liked it.
  2. The latest release of the Airfix B-25C/D, with markings for an RAF aircraft. All painted with Mr. Paints, and a lot of weathering using oils. Hope you like it. b-25-41 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-44 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-47 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-48 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-49 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr b-25-52 by Nigel Poole, on Flickr Nigel.
  3. You know how it is Paul. If you’ve got it, flaunt it 😉.
  4. I have the special edition issue of this kit if anybody is interested. It comes complete with the metal undercarriage etc. It’s all brand new in the box, with sealed bags. I’m looking for £55 plus postage. Nigel.
  5. Cheers everybody. Jessie, you're looking at major modifications. Apart from the obvious, cockpit canopy, engines, nacelles and turret. The main challenge would be moving the whole wing assembly from being mid mounted on the fuselage, to the bottom of it. The Design of the wing to fuselage fit, doesn't really lend itself to that type of modification I don't think. Nige.
  6. Hot off the press, well sort of. I finished it just before Christmas. Is Airfix's new 1:48 Bristol Blenheim Mk1. Can't really say a lot about the build as its for a future magazine article I'm afraid. Needless to say it's in keeping with Airfix's modern releases and I don't think you will be disappointed by it. Not a kit for beginners though, because of that massive greenhouse like canopy. Onto the pics.

  7. Emergency shout out! Has anybody got the Eduard seatbelt set for the new 1:48 Airfix Blenheim. I ordered some but Royal Mail appears to have lost them, and the company I ordered them from is now out of stock. I have ordered some more but the due date is 15th December. Everywhere else is out of stock. I need some ASAP though, because it’s an article for A magazine, the 15th of December just wont do. I’ll cover all costs and forward the seatbelts as soon as they are delivered to me. Fingers crossed.
  8. Nige. That’s me, I got a bronze you know.
  9. Did I mention I got a bronze in the competition?

    Just finished Airfix's 1/72 Bf-110 C-2/C-4. Not my best, in fact its probably my worst kit in the last five years. No fault of Airfix though. I lost interest, at about the half way stage. In the end I was just glad to get it off the bench. I'm going to have to re-order some more master barrels, as two out of the four fell into the fuselage. I may well do some weathering, etc. When i fit them, if I can bothered. The decals are by EagleCals, and depict an aircraft of Erganzungs Schalcht Gruppe. There's also numerous mistakes I made which I won't go into, out of embarrassment. All paints are Mr Paint. Thanks for looking. Nige.
  11. Well the second build of the year is complete. Really enjoyed this little jewel by Airfix and it has really wet my appetite for the 1:48 one. The only aftermarket parts were some Eduard belts and Pavla resin exhausts. All the markings, less the small stencils are painted on. Another small mod, was to cut out the wingtip lights, and replace them with pieces of clear spruce. This kit has sat on the shelf unloved for some time, and is the first to be targeted in operation clear the shelf. Thanks for looking. Nige

  13. Had a play around with some oil paint on the collector ring. One done, and one for comparison. Nige
  14. In fairness to Airfix Col, they suggested gun metal. Which isn’t what I was seeing in photos. But yes it does need more steel to tone it down.
