  1. This is great work, Adrian. Very impressive. Ian
  2. I'll drag mine out and have a look at it tonight. Maybe there's a trend, or maybe you're unlucky. Once it's cured it shouldn't shrink, as far as I know, so it's possibly the later, in which case they should sort you out. I always found them great to deal with.
  3. Sweet work! What a great build. Ian
  4. Great build, mate, and I love your comments about stretching yourself as a modeler. It really adds to the satisfaction, doesn't it. Well done.
  5. This is coming on nicely Kev. Looking forward to more. Cheers Ian

    Charles! We've even learned to build statues to our musical deities. I'll tip him a nod from Chigagoland next time I'm down in Freo. I wonder if he was a modeler? http://www.news.com.au/perthnow/story/0,21...83-2761,00.html
  7. Hi Kev Been lurking for a while, haven't had time to model but I'll be watching this build with interest. I have one in the stash, and played around with it a year or two back. I have the Aero Detail book, but would recommend grabbing the Hasegawa kit in 1/48th and using it as a reference for rebuilding the cockpit. Best of luck ! Ian
  8. Some nice work here mate. Most inspiring. Ian
  9. Some really interesting life stories, and some strong similarities. I'm 46, born in Liverpool UK, grew up in Oxford, came to Australia as a feckless youth and never went back. My Dad made me an F-4 Phantom and a Lightning in 1/72nd when I was 8 or 9, and I hung them from my bed room ceiling, and started making my own messes with glue and paint in the shed.. The Oxfordshire skys were full of US and British military aircraft back then, and summers were spent at airshows at Farnborough and Abingdon, Little Rissington, Brize. One of my Dad's cousins was a Lancaster VC, and I (and I suspect my Dad) worshiped him. My early career culminated in a Revel 1/32 F4u, but girls and booze and Rugby called. I started modelling again, very badly, about 5 years back, but rarely finish anything. I work in marketing and sales in building and land development, but look forward all week to meeting a group of like minded souls over coffee most Saturdays, and talking kits.
  10. It's all relative, mate. Keep in touch. I'll work out the postage as an exercise in the mean time. I'll send a PM. Cheers Ian
  11. Kev Only just caught up on this thread. I think I've got two Matchbox E's in the stash, so I could afford to lose one. See how you go at Box Hill this w/e. If you strike out drop me a line and we'll work something out. Cheers Ian
  12. Mate, I can see how you earned the re-animator tag. This is a fascinating build! And your defence of the skerrick of perfectly acceptable scratch building you were forced to use was up there with Eric "Otter" Stratten's defence of the toga party in Animal House-a classic of its kind! Ian
  13. Thanks for the update Graham. I'm looking forward to this one! Ian
  14. Whoops-stuffed up the quotation feature there! Sorry.
  15. I'm sorry to say that I can't recall the brand of the templates Looks like a Verlinden template. You've done a better job on some of the curves than I have. How'd you go with the step at the rear of the wing insert under the fuselage? I'm doing the Revell Mk 1, which is a new wing on the same fuselage, and had problems, as you can see from the thread. You've got a bit of blue tape over the area, but seem to have handled it fine. Ian
