  1. You've done a wise move by blacking the interior instead of building up the interior. Whilst it's great, something this big will have an instant 'wow' factor as soon as you see it. It's going to be amazing, I honestly can't wait to see it in all it's miniature 1/32nd Connie glory. Top work getting the fuselage together.
  2. Ordered this from Hobbyterra last week, and I'm grinning ear-to-ear at the moment. My Combat Models vacform has now officially been boxed and stored away, I may get it back out, but I may just cut it up and reuse the plastic. It's no where near the quality of this, and if I had the two built up, I'd want them looking the same... and that's going to be tough. So here it is, in all it's fibreglass glory. Nice boxart too.... I will post more shots of the sprues as the build progresses.
  3. With Peter doing the Firefly, I'm bringing this back out. I ditched my efforts before but managed to salvage the plastic. I think once Scale Model World is out the way and I can relax a bit more, it's hitting the bench. Seeing how Peter has tackled the Firefly has really got me thinking, and it looks loads better than what I did. So, until next time...
  4. With the Bf-109H boxed up for a bit, I'm replacing it with this beauty. The main reason is, I have a small fire bomber club, known as a IPMS 'SIG' (Special Interest Group) and I really need to get building some more stuff for it... most of it is 1/72nd scale, but the odd subject, like this will be 1/32nd scale. Along with my Vacform Tracker when it gets done and some choppers.... Used as a leader plane and a ' aerial plane spotter ' for other fire bomber aircraft, the Bronco plays a very helpful part in fighting fires. Currently, there should be 12 Broncos flying for CDF (Cal Fire) that I know of, but living in the UK and not having a current list online that may have changed. (I use photo databases, but they don't show the status of the aircraft). Some of the Broncos have been upgraded to 4, and also 5 bladed props and I want to convert mine from 3 to either 4 or 5. I plan on making a master prop and spinner and then getting them cast... probably from CMK! I'm sure we've all seen the plastic in reviews so I won't bore you with it, but the boxart for the time being while I get down to some modelling.. and a photo of the said aircraft I'm building. Thanks for looking in!
  5. Sure is, I have photos on my site - https://radleighbushell.wordpress.com/2017/01/18/scale-model-world-competition-aircraft/
  6. Annoying, isn't it! And thanks Peter, that would be great. I could really do with some PE to push some projects forward!
  7. That PE is superb. What do you use to create the files Peter?
  8. Lego.... Genius. If it works mate, go for it. Regarding gluing the perspex, in the film industry... they used chloroform and I'm certain it also sticks other plastic to it too. I did have a 'large' bottle of it, but it's all gone now and I've never been able to get more.... I actually think you need a license now to hold it. But if you can get it, it's great.... PS: Will reply to the message shortly, been really busy.....
  9. OK, I'm jealous... but hopefully I will have one soon! Just a lot of money.... especially as I've just bought this.....
  10. I was so close to buying the Silver Wings kit and I'm over the moon that I didn't! I have the new I-16 Type 24 and it's lovely, so I've no doubt this will be another superb kit.
  11. Source - http://master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=100171&sid=b7252e4ad3d849de8e26c4c009281a81 Good news!
  12. I had this kit until recently, I rushed out and got it the day it was released but then sold it a few weeks back... I had big plans, but they were never going to happen, just a dream. So on that note I really look forward to seeing yours built, Iain. Sounds like it's going to be everything I wanted to do.
  13. I've dived into the deep end with my first aircraft carrier, a monster if ever there was one. The Trumpeter 1/350th Admiral Kuznetsov. Getting started asap (build thread will be up in the non-LSP section soon), I've never been this excited about a kit, well not since I got my Amodel An-22! Plans are a full hangar full of Sukhois, 10+ jets on top and a few Kamovs. I just need to source the 1/350th fire trucks for the deck too....?
  14. Peter, that is absolutly stunning. I've got to get photos of it at Telford...!!

    If they do one that comes with red stars, i'm going to crumble!
  16. I just looked myself.... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/112349683992?chn=ps&dispItem=1&adgroupid=45192390362&rlsatarget=pla-331477171812&abcId=1129006&adtype=pla&merchantid=7434894&poi=&googleloc=9046472&device=c&campaignid=861899495&crdt=0 Great work on the Airacobra Torben!
  17. Superb subject and I can't wait to see you build this, your Hustler and Atlantic were amazing.!
  18. Hi Kev, as we've been speaking on Facebook, I've only just seen this as I've been out all morning. But that's the camera that has taken the Be-12 shot on FB. Hopefully you can get something sorted!
  19. New camera for model shows, modelling and our newborn! A Canon EOS M3..
  20. Hey Madhatter, thanks! The Tu-160 had slowed right down due to becoming a dad on the 1st, but now I'm doing the nightshift feeds, it should come back out, I'm just not sure I will get much painting done yet when looking after Flo. ​If you like the look of it and think jets would look cool, Google the Beriev R-1... Cheers Jim, as above I'm staying up till about 2-3am doing the night feeds and then Jen takes over till the morning, so I can get a 4-5 hours before work and Jen gets some sleep from 9-10pm till 2-3am. Sadly, drinking is a no go for me as I'm on medication 24-7, but hopefully only for another 12 months... It is, and my all time favourite amphibious float plane!
