  1. This is so cool.... great project. Any chance of seeing it next to something for a size up?
  2. Me in 2019... i'm learning to skydive, doing my AFF Level 1-8 and then A License allowing me to jump anywhere in the world.. And what I'm jumping from... I thought this might be a new aircraft for me, but D-ISCO is ex- HA-ACO which I jumped exactly 13 years ago to this month also! Not a bad thing, good to be reunited!
  3. Nice work, loving this build.
  4. You've done the B-17, B-24, B-29, Halifax, Stirling (in progress) etc... and now this, can't be much left in terms of monster kits to build in 1/32nd scale? Great work mate, hope to catch up this year, although not sure when... I may come down to Southern Expo.
  5. Bought a very large tank today, 1/16th Soviet T-34/76 Model 1942 for £30, Hannants have it down as £129.99.... and it's all there, did I commit daylight robbery? And a Revell Me-163 1/48th
  6. Any chance of a similiar photo of the kit with wing attached to compare? (anyone with a kit, not just Iain)

    1/32 B-29?

    Something like this in 1/32nd would certainly turn heads.. I would only build a Tu-4 (or KJ-1) given the chance.

    1/32 B-29?

    Someone produce one so I can get some 3D printed engines to make a Tu-4/KJ-1....
  9. Makes perfect sense, to be fair I was really busy when looking at the thread and never took it in properly, but now you've said that and I've gone back and looked I can see it now. Not as bad as I thought then work wise, but still quite a bit... cant wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for the explanation, Iain!
  10. Iain I've a question. When tilting this wing back, it moves the engine up, (and wheels forward slightly?).. are you needing to correcting this? Looking at the drawings Alain Gadbois posted, I didnt realise the engine it was facing up, but are the wheels OK? Sorry if I've missed this.. not seen it mentioned. Really want a B-24, and i'm weighing up whether or not I'd be up for correcting the wing...
  11. Now in the Multi-Engine GB....
  12. Any chance of moving this over for me please Iain?
  13. Does this qualify for the GB? Lots left to do...
  14. If you need any info or photos, the Mi-8PS is at the ex Motortechnica Museum, Bad Oeynhausen in Germany. Also, if you're building it how it is in the photo, a Mi-8PS is very different from a Mi-8MT. Should be good either way, can't wait to see what you do.
  15. Here you go... Great choice, if I still owned a 111 I'd be entering with it!
  16. That is so nice, just perfect. Can't fault it in anyway!
  17. You've just really made me want a B-24 even more... that scheme!
  18. 24" wide & 23" long... decent size! Here's some photos of the one on the Revell stand at Telford.
  19. When I heard about this kit it was a must buy for me, (being the big Soviet/Russian/Eastern European fan that I am...) I was going to wait until the new year, but the itch kept getting worse so I went and got it. Just had to be done. Great looking kit, although a shame only one choice of livery, I would of much preferred one of the older schemes.. If anyone does a decal sheet for this, I shall get a second kit for definate, but this will be built OOB! Photos of what you get here - https://scalesoviet.wordpress.com/revell-an-225/ and a great boxart (with dimensions on the box)
  20. What I’m building at the moment, HobbyBoss Su-30MKK. There is a WIP in the non-LSP section..
  21. Its just great Kevin, take a look at some photos I did yesterday. It’s getting started very soon so I’ll do a WIP on LSP too! https://scalesoviet.wordpress.com/revell-an-225/
  22. Got this monster today and the Zvezda Yak-130 (1/48th) the other day with another IL-76 (1/144th) but no photo, the new Emercom boxing.
  23. Paint work has finally begun on my HobbyBoss 1/48th Su-30MKK, a nice kit that falls together. Will be finished in a PLAAF scheme, but for now working on the back end building up in thin layers of many colours to try and get a decent burnt look. Colours vary between Alclad, Mr.Hobby & Tamiya. More soon, will be working on them cans tonight as they are just based out in Alclad and some blue/purple in various areas.
