  1. And another one done. Airfix's 1/72 Supermarine Swift FR.5. A decent kit overall, although I just couldn't quite get the canopy to sit right. Xtracrylix paints. Kit markings for No.II (AC) Sqn, Jever, Germany, 1956.
  2. Greetings peeps. Recently finished this wee fella. Airfix's 1/72 Jet Provost T.3. Lovely little kit that was a joy to throw together. Markings are Xtradecal of a machine from the Macaws display team from the Manby College of Air Warfare, RAF Manby, 1968. Vallejo red and Xtracrylix Light Aircraft Grey. 1st time using Xtracrylix, and I'm very impressed. Will be my 'go to' brand for my paints from now on
  3. No. Surely this cannot be............ But it is. I've actually finished a build!!! 1st of what will be a long term project of 1/72 Post War British aircraft is done. Revell's re-boxing of the Special Hobby Vampire F.3. Finished in the markings of 601 Royal Auxiliary Air Force, North Weald, 1952. Not a bad little kit, it went together without much fuss and just a wee bit if filler here and there. Not my best effort by a long way, but a lot of fun.
  4. Greetings one and all. This is the recent re-issue of the ancient 1/32 Bell X-1 from Revell. It is deffo a kit of it's age. As well as heavy raised panel lines, the pit woefully lacks detail, and what there is is very 'soft'. And there is certainly much filling and cleaning up to do! Panel lines are raised, so I did a rescribe on them. Unfortunately some dust managed to escape my cleansing before I fitted the canopy and has decided to show itself. Ah well, cant win them all. The main thing is it was just done for fun, so hasn't turned out to shabby overall. Not one for the shows though!
  5. And yet another beaut! (y)
  6. Calling this one done. Revell's 1/48 North American F-86D Sabre Dog. 85th Fighter Interceptor Sqn, Scott AFB 1954. Base, as always, courtesy of Coastal Kits. An absolute gem of a kit. I need to get me more of these!!
