  1. Beautifully smooth landing Pete. Your humility is second only to your skill as a pilot my friend. I think I may have found a great idea for a diorama......
  2. Crikey! You're probably taking this whole "teaching the student how to deal with emergencies" thing a bit too far but hey, whatever works for ya ;) Seriously though Pete, huge kudos for keeping your cool and getting you both down safely. Glad you're ok. Looks like the damage will buff right out so you should be back in the air in no time. Cheers.
  3. Hi Gord, It is my belief that Revell may have based this model on a specific airframe. If you take a close look at JZ-E, AR213 the similarities are remarkable. https://goo.gl/images/ioD4ft I think it wears the code XR-D, PZ308 at this moment in time. https://www.google.co.uk/search?biw=1920&bih=947&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=iY5JW6DwBYGD8gLBuq3YDg&q=duxford+based+spitfire+XR-d&oq=duxford+based+spitfire+XR-d&gs_l=img.3...25954.28591.0.28939. The oddities that the kit displays tie in neatly with this restored warbird. HTH Cheers.
  4. Hi Martin, Spotted this recently on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRgepSBdJLs Not sure how well it will work but the results on the video looked ok. I expect it might come down to the quality of your printer and a bit of practice. HTH Cheers.
  5. Hi Fanch, This is an absolute pleasure to follow so thank you for taking the time and effort to share your techniques and progress. I hope the article is a huge success as I'd like to see more modellers adopting your approach of ultra-realism. It's such a treat to see someone painting an aircraft as it appeared rather than using some artistic style just because it's popular. Bravo sir, I applaud you for daring to be different. Long may it continue Looking forward to seeing more. Cheers.
  6. Good to see you two poking fun at each other again. Just like old times I fitted the Aires pit and don't remember it being particularly difficult. The detail is extremely impressive so I hope your's goes well. Cheers.
  7. Hi Mike, I'm sure I've seen this in one of my kits but I can't remember if I gave it away or not. If I've still got it you're welcome to it. I'll go and check. Cheers. *EDIT. I checked and found that I still have the Vokes filter. I suspect it is from a Hasegawa Spitfire of some description. It was in the box of a Spitfire that I bought second hand which included a number of extra parts. If it means anything it's on sprue C alongside a mahoosive slipper tank. It looks just the same as the tan parts in Wackyracer's pic above but it's in grey plastic. If you'd like it drop me a PM with your snail mail and I'll get it out to you. HTH. Cheers.
  8. Hi Kyle, looking forward to seeing how your Tomcat turns out. If you check reference photos you might find that the raised panel lines on the beaver tail are more accurate than you think. Everyone jumps on the re-scribe bandwagon but the real deal may have actually had more like raised panel lines in that area. Might be worth a looksee. Just saying Hey Phil, good to see you again buddy. It's been a while. Welcome back dude. Cheers.
  9. That makes sense MARU, thanks. Thanks for the update too Kev. That book should be a bestseller for you I'd hope. I'm rather looking forward to seeing what inspires our resident maestro next. Cheers.
  10. Good to see your Tigercat all mocked up Brian. I was lucky enough to get to hold a built up model on Hph's stand last November and can attest to just how heavy this model feels with all of the weight inside. It's nice to see you beginning to enjoy your big Cat after all of your hard work. Hope it's all plain sailing from here on in. Cheers.
  11. Hi folks, Is it my imagination or is Peter (Airscale) conspicuous by his absence? I know he decided not to continue work on his Fairey but he usually drops in to add words of encouragement to other modellers and I have n't noticed any such postings lately. Any word on what he's working on anyone? Cheers.
  12. Excellent. Thanks for that Dave, much appreciated. Duly bookmarked
  13. That is a glorious model Doc. The images are so vibrant. Love the work you put into the underside in particular. Very nice. May I ask where you got the grass for the base? It's extremely convincing. All round beautiful job. Cheers and Happy Chrimbo.
  14. Nice choice Tony. "Just Jane" would be one of my choices but would n't there need to be more modifications than to make the BBMF Lanc? Cheers
  15. Nice but I sincerely hope that the serial on the aircraft depicted is n't how the kit turns out
  16. Hi Zach, too bad about the seam under the fuselage. Can't help wondering if it may have been caused by paint in joints. I've read many accounts where paint has caused similar issues on these WNW kits because fit is so tight. Glad you got it sorted though and it's great to see how beautifully your engine turned out. Keep at it as I can see the end result being spectacular. Cheers.
  17. That one was there this year William and picked up a gold. It was extremely well done.
  18. Great finds MARU. Thanks for sharing these
  19. Hi Peter. I can only echo what others have said in that photos do not do justice to your Spitfire. Yes, it looks beautiful in pictures but even more magnificent in the flesh. I'm glad I made the trip to see it. It was worth it. Huge congratulations on the well deserved awards including the Edgar Brookes memorial trophy, a job well done. It was my pleasure to shake you by the hand and as one or two have already mentioned, you are as modest as you are talented. I'm confident that your Firefly will be just as earth shattering eventually. What better way to advertise your company than by turning out some of the world's highest calibre models? Well done that man. You're an all round good egg and richly deserve all of the accolades. Cheers
  20. She's a big beast Iain and looked fabulous on your stand at Telford. You've really captured the look nicely and seeing her in this natural state shows just how much work is required to attain such a high quality finish. Keep at it, she'll be a beauty and will look magnificent next to Tom's Shack' at some time in the future. Cheers
  21. Hi Chuck. There's no lack of modelling skill on show here buddy. Beautifully crisp finish that we've come to expect from you. Thanks for taking the time to detail your adventures so brilliantly and I look forward to seeing the finished bird in all of her glory. In the mean time, enjoy your hols. Cheers
  22. Hello Tom. Just dropped by to say what a pleasure it was to meet you at Telford on Sunday and see this big girl in the flesh. The quality of your work is even more impressive in the flesh and I commend you on your approach to surface fidelity. It's a joy to see subtlety and restraint employed when it is all too easy to overdo panel lines and surface details. Congrats on a beautiful scratch guild so far. Cheers.
  23. Hi Kent. I was lucky enough to attend the show at Telford recently and HPH had a cutaway Cat on their stand. It looks extremely impressive so keep up the great work and the rewards will follow. One thing to make sure of though......don't forget to include the roll of toilet paper on a rear bulkhead Cheers.
