- Christmas Airfix!
@CountZero has your mate posted on any modelling forums or had work in a magazine, I seem to remember reading about someone that had made Jerry cans and racks out of silver?
The kit I used was this one from 1995 (said I’d had it a while!)…
It has the option of being made with a flamethrower or the normal 75mm gun.Posted 1 month ago
P51 cockpit just about done and waiting to be fixed to the fuselage, maybe just a bit of seatbelt weathering to do first though?
The seatbelts were a nightmare to fix together (HGW set) and took around three hours as they were so fiddly, I’m pleased with how they turned out though and would use them again. The biggest problem that I had was not knowing I had to take them off the backing paper and trying to force them through the etched buckles!😂Posted 1 month agoBruise WilliesMember
Lysander is a 1/32 scale.
My preferred scale. You can scratch build a good bit of stuff into them.
Here is revell’s Sopwith Camel. Rigging done with an elastic thread. Makes it a bit easier & less fragile.
Old 1/28 scale. Full of scratch detailing that cannot be seen.
That’s a really nice build; I’m currently doing the Revell Fokker DR1.Posted 1 month ago
What’s the quality like of that kit? The Fokker is properly ropey, the moulds are from 1957!

Amazing. I can do that on small parts but don’t have the patience to apply it to the whole model.
For balance, look at the results you can achieve with 4 pots of paint and 1 brush (the 1/72 P-51 I made with rocket jr over Christmas)Posted 1 month ago
I don’t mind. I like it, as does my son who has already stolen it.
It was more about restoring the mojo and trying some new techniques. I used White-Tac “worms” and a bit of Flory’s Filth for the first time. Also I’ve never done dots with the airbrush before.
Actually, the camera flash has exaggerated it a bit by whiting it out. I’ll get a better picture in daylight.Posted 1 month ago
Anyone else going?
I have my shopping list
1 x A3 cutting mat
1 x Paints for Su-35 (blue scheme)
1 x Tamiya thinners
1 x Airbrush stand / cleaning pot thingy
I don’t need any more kits… however, if I spot a Tucano, Su-25 or Su-50/57 for a silly price I’m having it.Posted 4 weeks ago
I needed a resin zero-scarf nozzle for a Harrier, and ended up with two Harrier kits in a special boxing as it was cheaper. I also need to stop finding old aviation memorabilia in my loft and buying kits to go with it , but I did get a good deal on the Hasegawa Phantom FG.1 kit and I did get to try an airbrush I fancy. Could be expensive.Posted 3 weeks agoJonEdwardsMember
So here’s the Aldi FW190.
On the whole pretty happy with it. The big success was spraying the white crosses on the upper wings. First attempt at exhaust and gun staining – OK ish for a first go, but could be better. Annoyingly the hairial was drum taught until I walked out into the cold damp conservatory to take the pics where it went immediately soggy…
My Aldi Mustang (above) seems to have been supplied with the wrong decal sheet. I had to paint all the red bits and the yellow stripe on the wings.
Same here – the decals are for kit A01004A – instructions and paint callouts are on the airfix site.Posted 2 weeks ago
