  1. Hi guys thanks for the interest. Just a wee update today. I managed to do the prop and get the electric motor going. To my surprise the new Airfix motors fit into the bulkheads(the ones on the spru with the stand) on the original kit. Makes life a little easier. Sorry for pic quality, I need more hands!! Cheers for looking, Richard
  2. Hi Keith Glad to hear you and family are ok. I think we got off lightly at our house. My 11wk old son quite enjoyed it I think! Didn't half make your ass pucker! Cheers Richard.
  3. Hi Alan nice to see these big kits getting an airing. Looking forward to your progress. Cheers Richard.
  4. Hi Keith great looking Spitfire you got there. I hope all your modeling stuff is where you left it lastnight after the earthquake this morning? Cheers Richard.
  5. Hi there Alan I was thinking I might try to make some mask's and do the markings myself. I quite like the look of the 610 Sqn machines. In particular DW*E flown by Plt Off Constantine Pegge. Going by the colour profile in the book Spitfire mark I/II Aces 1939-41 in the Osprey aircraft of the aces series there are no under wing roundles or aircraft serial numbers. This should make it easier to paint!(we'll see!) cheers Richard.
  6. Hi there Brent great work thus far. I can see that the Tornado Gr1 & F 4E Phantom in 1/32 scale that I sold you via Trade me are in very capable hands! Looking forward to the progress on the Lysander. Cheers Richard.
  7. Hi all Can I join with this kit? More soon. Richard.

  11. and also got the seat belts all attached. MDC etched brass with leed foil for the bit going through the armour plate.
  12. Hello all. Hope everyone has had a great Xmas and New Year break! Work is slowly moving forward with the Spitfire. Got the gunsight made. Turned it out of brass. Going to use the kit part for the lense. Also got the bulbs fitted!
  13. Gary Your Spitfire is absolutley stunning! Love the paint job, spot on! If I needed a reason to get a move on with my Spitfire build I just found it!! Cheers Richard
  14. Back again Another shot. Better view of the brass nuts. Also at the top left I test fitted the gunsight bulbs. I will try to dull down the hydraulic lines. A bit bright aye! The instrument panel is the kit suplied, not overly happy with it, but it'll do. Thanks for looking Cheers Richard
  15. Hello all again. Thanks everyone for the feed back. Its been alot of fun and I'm glad your enjoying the progress. Here is a little more I've done. Finally got the under carriage unit painted, attached and all plumbed up! The waldron placard didn't quite go to plan and as you can see I made a bit of a mess of it! The Brass nuts are from Mastercasters purchased through Cammett Ltd.
  16. Ian Great build of a great plane! The weathering looks spot on aswell! Thanks for sharing. Cheers Richard
  17. Hey Ron Fantastic '109. Another great addition to a fine looking stable of models in the background! Great stuff! Cheers Richard

  19. ... and last one. Bit better picture of the controls. Next hopefully I will be getting onto the instrument panel and gunsight! Thanks for looking. Richard
  20. The seat padding and head pad are painted matt black and then dry brushed with various shades of brown to simulate leather.
  21. ......more! Yip Andy they are Waldron placards. The set belts are painted with Humbrol deck tan and then given a wash of Tamiya clear smoke. The buckles and eyelits are the easy bits to paint. Just scratched off the paint to let the brass show through!
  22. Wow guys, thanks for the comments. Here are some more pic's.
