- Christmas Airfix!
I’ve just chucked a Hasegawa 1/72 Tornado in the bin cos it looked shite, by far the worst job I’ve ever done since I was 6. The kit itself was ok but I made a right balls of it in more ways than one.Posted 6 months ago
I’ve kept the wings though cos they were resin ones with the flaps dropped.
The A1H Skyraider I’m on with doesn’t look as bad. Thankfully.
Arse! I snapped the bloody thing off three times and didn’t notice…. It’s a nice kit for £25, Airfix have come on massively since I first built one about 35 years ago. But also the tools, paint and glue etc have improved which makes it quite easy to turn out a decent model. Even so when I compare it so some other on this page it looks quite average!Posted 6 months ago
I’ve got two of them that I’m going to build in parallel. One out of the box, one with all the resin, white metal and photo etch. There was a row on Britmodeller (yes, I know) and I responded like it was STW with pictures of Ron Burgundy and Father Ted. As a result I “won” a Victor and all the bits.
Initial impressions are that, with a bit of work, it will be OK.Posted 6 months ago
Next up some Vallejo Metal Colour (aluminium), first time I’ve sprayed this paint and I was impressed. I will definitely use this again.Posted 5 months ago
Olive drab on the top surfaces and it’s stating to look ok.
I used my new Harder and Steenbeck Infinity airbrush on this and it was fantastic, the Iwata is going to be relegated to varnishes now!
