  1. Welcome! I'm looking forward to following along, you will enjoy the P51 - Its a great kit and lovely to build.
  2. Just lately i've been bitten by the bug to build some WW1 aircraft, and to hopefully restore some long lost mojo. I was in my local modelshop and saw the CSM Nieuport, fell in love with the sprues and took it home with me. Has anyone here built one and can advise if there are any issues/things to be aware of when building it? I've never rigged anything before but the rigging looks pretty simple to me. But ask me again when i've attempted it haha! I've also added a WNW Sopwith Camel to the stash, and whilst i'm tempted to start with that the slightly more complex rigging is making me think maybe leave it till ive built the Nieuport. Cheers!
  3. Awesome job, the paint work is amazing - Very nice!
  4. Very true! lack of mojo and lack of spare time has done it for me, i find weeks can go by without me even thinking about building something. But i think the mojo is returning, there's a Revell Spitfire in the stash that i'm sure is very quietly calling out to me whenever i walk past..
  5. I'm here..... Usually check in every few days to check things out, but not built anything for a while. hopefully that will change soon enough.
  6. That is insanely good, and certainly different. Thanks for sharing. nick
  7. Just caught up with this build Andy, fantastic stuff!
  8. Looks great, would love to be able to have a go at it but i think the photo etch would defeat me. Wonderland models have it listed at £135, and in stock from the 15th April. Nick
  9. Excellent work Rob, i love the paint finish - looks great.
  10. Hi chaps, i've been quietly beavering away at it, i don't get a whole lot of spare time but nonetheless i have made a bit of progress. The bulk of the tractor unit is now built, the winch (which is a complete kit in itself!) is now done, as is the a frame and tyre changing crane (not pictured, i forgot to add it lol). All thats left now are the lights, tools and a few other small fixtures and fittings. Still really enjoying the build, it's a hell of a lot of work and easily my most demanding one yet - The Tamiya 1/32 Zero is nothing compared to this.. haha. The fit of everything is perfect, typical Tamiya. I'm now starting to think ahead to how i'm going to display it, it will be big as the finished wagon is 20" long and i intend to have a few other bits and pieces too. Thanks for looking, Nick
  11. Thanks Phil Yep, i reckon you need one, it's a great kit. I wish i was a better builder to be honest so i could do it justice,there are some fantastic builds of this kit on the net. But i sure am having fun with it, although it is a very very involved build. I should have another update fairly soon, been working on it tonight and it's slowly coming together. Nick
