  1. Thanks Stefan, I hope you enjoy it. Wow Martin! Those photos are perfect. Thank you so much. Where do you find all of this stuff? Hi Mike, good to see you. Glad to hear that the kit is fun. When I get some time I hope to get stuck in. Cheers.
  2. Gotta be one of the sharpest, best presented and popular builds of 2016 though Chuck. Stellar and professional job buddy and a pleasure to see. Thanks for sharing the images here. Cheers.
  3. Outstanding models Florin. The He-111 (were they still called He-111 by the Romanians?) is fabulous. That alone would take most modellers the whole year. The gloss on the Hawk is beautiful. What a great job. The X-1 is also jaw-droppingly good. What a flawless, crisp and finely detailled finish. Thank you for taking the time to share your finished builds. They are all spectacular, well done. Cheers.
  4. Thankyou Peter, not only for the kind words but also for the recommendation of AS-12 for the base silver. A great choice that goes a long way to giving the model the look I was after. Cheers.
  5. Hello Artur, A lovely collection of models. I admire your photography techniques too. The Mustang and the Yak in particular could pass for the real things. Good job. Cheers.
  6. Hello Emil and welcome to LSP That is a smart, artistic representation of a Spitfire. You have clearly taken alot of time and patience over the application of the weathering. Are you also an armour modeller by chance? It is a pleasure to view your model. Good job. Cheers.
  7. That is a tremendous model. Very nice indeed. Well done sir. Cheers.
  8. Very kind words and much appreciated Maurice, thanks. Thanks for posting the article on the homepage Kev. You managed to make it look very nice, thanks.
  9. Hi everyone, Since we don't get to see many of these gliders built I'll begin this project with some sprue shots if I may? Please forgive the poor photography. As it turns out, white sprues are rather difficult to light consistently and well. The kit consists of four main sprues in white plastic plus one clear sprue with the two canopies. I shall begin by following the instructions which are the typical Revell style. The cockpits are the first stages. Here is a look at the two IPs. Front: Rear: And the pilot/student (passenger?) buckets Front: Rear: By luck more than judgement I've managed to make the seat belt and seat cushion detail apparent in the two images above. In fact, it is really quite soft..... First steps will be to see what it looks like under paint. It's difficult to tell from looking at the white plastic how it will turn out. I'll keep you posted. Cheers.
  10. Hi Stefan, Why not build both? Whichever you decide to build, it's good to see you in the GB. Have fun. Cheers.
  11. Hi Richard, Firstly, I agree wholeheartedly with your comments about Peter and Airscale. If only everything in life was as good. Now, onto your questions. You will definitely need to apply these to the front of the clear part rather than the rear. The Airscale decals are printed in the conventional way, the Tamiya IP decals are printed in reverse with the print on the adhesive side of the decal. Ideally, you would punch each instrument decal out of the whole sheet and apply them individually. Some cross-referencing may be necessary because I think Peter might include a number of different styles of some instruments. Also, be aware that these are sized generically so may not fit exactly to the Tamiya dials. If you were building an IP from scratch you would use the etched bezels on top of the decal and punch out a circle of clear acetate for the glass. My experience of the way these Airscale decals behave is very positive. When they have cured a drop of your favourite clear gloss (Future or the like) will create the illusion of glass. HTH Cheers.
  12. Lovely looking Mosquito Peter. Top notch work all round. Everything appears to be crisp and pin sharp on my monitor. I really hope that Tamiya follow this MKVI with a bomber version although I'm not holding my breath. Nearly there now so bring it home..... Cheers
  13. Good work on the IP Mark, a big improvement. That decal pack looks great too. Cheers.
  14. Hi David, This looks like a great project. I'm old enough to remember seeing 'copters similar to this in "M.A.S.H" and "Skippy the bush kangaroo" so I've always had a soft spot in my heart for this little Bell. Eager to see you start on this. Cheers
  15. Hi Jack, You could give Randy a PM He is known as sluggo here on LSP. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showuser=34691 His compant StencilPal do great work. http://www.stencilpal.com/?post_type=product I'm very happy with the masks I've used from him. HTH
  16. Great videos guys. The Twin Otter landing is impressive because of the aircraft size but that Super Cub on the bush tyres made me laugh out loud. Astonishing to see it just plop down and stop within it's own length and then hop back up into the air in about the same distance. Brilliant! Cheers.
  17. Thanks for the explanation Ron. That artcle was a great read. Cheers.
  18. Hi Marcel, I hope your little one's condition continues to improve. Nice job on the Ferris cammo. Your masking looks top-notch. Keep at it. Cheers
  19. Hi Chuck, good to see your update. That is some seriously crisp work. I thought the same as F. A quick pass with a sanding stick could improve the look of those petals substantially. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d6/F-15_Eagle_nozzle_details.jpg Hope the shoulder continues to heal at pace. Cheers.
  20. Very nice Carl. It looks just as good as I'd hoped it would. @Steve, did 248 blow a rod at some point? http://cdn.9cloud.us/images/261/p51_12_cylinder_rolls_royce_merlin__1935615943.1024x0.jpg Cheers.
  21. Hi Dennis, Erik, Richard, Brian and Jim. Thanks for stopping by and adding your kind comments guys, much appreciated. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed my efforts. Chhers.
  22. Neat work so far Martin. Do you have an image of the actual machine that you're planning please? Cheers.
  23. Hi Shaka, this should be an interesting one to follow. Enjoy your foray into the Piper. Cheers.
  24. That looksfabulous Carl. The wash and gloss coat give just the right appearance in my eyes. Subtkle and realistic. Good job. Those chromed components are going to look superb against the red, especially with other pipes, wires, hoses and ancilliaries added to splash other colours around. I'll say it again, what a great choice. Cheers.
