  1. I was being sarcastic! I'm just happy that one is coming out in 32nd and injection moulded! I won't be counting, filling or adding rivets!
  2. Hi guys, Another model I've been humbering along with. I've got a thread going over on Britmodeller but for those that don't go on there I thought I would share here too. It was for another forum GB/SIG but I never made the finishing date due to moving house, packing kits away etc! It's almost OOB, I've added some detail and was going to add a hell of alot more but I've decided to just get it finished with some heavy weathering! Onto some pics...

One is being a sod! Will adjust later.) Trumpeter ZIL-157K 1/35 by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr ...and how it all stands. I've got a long painting session due tomorrow/Tuesday on this, as you can see, I painted the chassis then added bits, all will come together very soon!

  3. Quick fill + Archer rivets? Sounds like an easier option if it's really that big a deal.
  4. Damn Kev you've built this quick, It's taken me 6+ months to do my Sea Wolf over on Britmodeller! Wish I had more time on my hands Great though, the 'U' looks alright too! So, what's next on the vac list?
  5. This is one of the kits I want, superb aircraft. Watching!
  6. I've been toying with getting Tiggers 32nd scale one, but won't buy any more until the Hudson is done!
  7. Looks great! Always been a fan of Swedish built aircraft
  8. Thanks Kev, I've done a bit before just on a larger scale! I should be ok, but if I get stuck questions will be asked lol
  9. This has finally turned up Sylmasta resin casting kit. by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr
  10. I'll ask again around May/June time, will fund everything/cover all costs too if it's a yes 109 is tasty too!
  11. It's OK Iain was just interested. Can't imagine it being a 2 second job!
  12. Iain, would you make decals for other people? I need some for both the Hudson & IL-76/82. Won't be until mid this year though...
  13. Didn't last long, I bought Revell's 1/48th PV-1 yesterday
  14. Use www.flickr.com Kev, upload your first 200 photos for free. (You can upload more but you only 'see' 200 photos, to see more and become Pro it's about £10 / $16) Worth it IMO, I've been a Pro on there now for about 3 years. Image quality don't get effected either. Can't wait to see progress. When I started my first vac this was how I done the tail planes. Just be careful not to end up with banana tail planes!

  15. Can finally move onto the next stage of the engine! All the front shaping is done and i'm 110% happy with the result. Some tiny pin holes but they can be sorted very last thing. The black lines you see are completley wrong, I've highlighted them for that reason to show before / after Vacform IL-76 - IL-82 conversion by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr Vacform IL-76 - IL-82 conversion by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr
  16. Thats bloody superb! Very good!
  17. Engine hollowed out now, just put on some more FEW filler to correct the circular shape and it's nearly there. (photos are coming out better now with the backing and natural light, Just a shame I take most of my photos at night time with the wrong light!) Vacform IL-76 - IL-82 conversion by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr
  18. I'm after one too, but I think I'm just going to have to model it with the kit engine and no panels open.
  19. Alright Kev, pleased to see this. When you cut around the plastic, make sure you use a marker pen to outline the kit part, I made the mistake of using a fine pen and it wasn't good enough once cut away, could hardly see where I was sanding up to! Look forward to seeing it progress
  20. Learnt stuff reading through this, genius!!
  21. Everytime I see this it makes me want to dig out my Fw-190! Great work, shows what can be done.
  22. Hi people, another update. Was sat at work today sanding like you wouldn't believe, got home to find this which I was very happy with! Just a bit more filler needed on the left hand of the photo then I can start to ream out the centre and work on the final shape. Vacform IL-76 - IL-82 conversion by Rainbow 1984, on Flickr Kit part on the left, my modded part on the right. Massive improvement in my eyes, hopefully look alot better once the centre is out.
