  1. Hi Ade, another possible pointer to it being the Kinetic kit is the price? The Revell offering was in the low £20s when I bought one. The link that Kagemusha provided has the RRP at over £50.
  2. I'm undecided on these accessories. Perhaps seeing a set in the flesh would convince me one way or another. I wonder if they take paint and washes well? It would be nice to be able to adjust the colours a bit in places. Some of the knobs and switches are bright when compared to the full sized items to my untrained eyes. Also, all the the panels are the same shade of black. There does n't seem to be any variance which gives the panels a bit of a toyish look. Additionally, do the screens on real jets look as bright as they are depicted when they are powered down? I probably appear critical which is not my intent. The 3D aspect is a big improvement over conventional etch and the panels do look nice and busy. It's just that they don't look absolutely "real" If it is possible to change the brand new look of the parts then that would definitely be an advantage in my book. Adding a bit of wear and tear to them could help the overall realism factor for me.
  3. Thanks for all of your hard work and effort Kev. The forums are n't quite right on my mobile. I can see them when I'm signed in but not as a guest.
  4. Hi Max. I'm extremely grateful to you for the inclusion of such lovely, clear reference photos in this thread. Excellent work, keep it up.
  5. Lovely choice Max. I look forward to seeing your Fury take shape in due course. K2065 in your image above is the subject of a 1/72nd scale offering by Revell which I built a few years ago. It would certainly look replendent in 1/32ndscale. Have you thought about how to replicate the metal parts yet? I have recently experimented with the newish Vallejo Metal colours and found them to be quite good. Cheers.
  6. Comparing completed models here on LSP the tails look different from the Su-27UB and the Su-30 MKK
  7. Beautiful work Piero The depth that you’ve created on the ordnance is spectacular. Great job.
  8. What an excellent result Max. Your custom windscreens are so much better than the kit parts and definitely enhance the overall finish. Will you reinstate those fuselage elements designed to suit the thicker kit parts?
  9. Superb job Max. I think there's a market for them.
  10. Hi discus, thanks for the link. The guy makes it look very easy and the finish that you've achieved looks quite realistic. May I ask, how durable is the finish? Does it come off on your fingers if you pick the model up? Did you have to do anything special to get the decals to adhere? Thankyou.
  11. The skill and patience it must take to create a smooth silver finish of this quality is admirable discus Well done indeed. I hope your move goes without a hitch Cheers
  12. Crikey! 200mm.....that’s about 8” in old money isn’t it? So how long will the finished jet be? Is this going to be a commercial venture in resin Iain? I know it’s probably rude to ask but what does each section cost roughly in materials? This should be fascinating to see come together particularly since Waddo is gearing up to receive their Poseidon’s at some point in the future. Good luck with the project. Cheers
  13. Interesting. Could the Hawk be a re-boxed Kinetic kit? I like the idea of a mainstream IM Gladiator. It might fall short of the lovely ICM kit (unless Revell have bought the ICM molds) but it's likely to be a bit more affordable too. Thanks for the heads-up Mike.
  14. Interesting to see this come together. The peek down the intake trunking looks good. It's not easy to tell from your second to last image but do the exhaust nozzles have the turkey feathers modelled? Also, a bit late for you now, but the real aircraft has a step from the end of the nacelles to the engine doughnut. Possibly something to consider if you should ever make another. I'm eager to see this all in place. Keep at it.
  15. Hi John. I enlarged that last photo a bit to get a better look and I have to compliment you on those exhausts. Everything is looking superb but the exhausts really caught my eye. Splendid job
  16. Folland Gnat in Red Arrows and Yellowjackets schemes. deHavilland Vampire. Also, Airfix are re-releasing their original Spitfire, Hurricane and Bf-109 kits in the short term. They are available to pre-order in online stores now. It would have been splendid to see an early Spitfire given the new tool treatment along the lines of their Typhoon and Hellcat kits. Perhaps they could do a Mk22/24 Spit or possibly a Mk47 with folding wings? Now that would be impressive.
  17. Ok, so now I'm confused. Are the images above of the actual aircraft or your model parts. I really can't tell........
  18. Oh my........! That really does look good. Definitely worth all of the pain. Nice job.
  19. Thanks for the heads-up Kev. Wow! Who would have ever thought that we'd have a 1/32nd scale Fairey Gannet? This has long been a favourite of mine. In the same vein as a Wessex she's so ugly she's beautiful (at least to some of us). So many schemes to finish her in. The AEW version with folded wings would yield a magnificent model. Personally I've yet to build a full resin aircraft. Who knows, could this be the one? Good luck in bringing this to the market guys.
  20. Yep, you've got my vote Peter. Nice start. I'll definitely tag along for this adventure.
