  1. i have to say i love a good bit of AM myself, but you sir are king
  2. Fantastic family history and fitting model tribute, great stuff
  3. Thanks for kind words, I am my worst critic i,m not driving for an hour with the Felix in the car, I’d have a nervous breakdown, but I will be at the show on Sunday
  4. Now for some light relief, superb Tamiya engineering i had the kit trundling along the carpet in two evening sessions, made me smile I think I'll do a captured German machine that has funky camo similar to this Youtube build
  5. Good news about the op, I had mine taken out with emergency procedure here in the Gold Coast last year, good grief the pain. I was out the next day, watch out for dairy products, i cant eat/drink them now, i have a violent instant reaction (wheres the toilet emoji) take care and happy modelling, and no I didnt enjoy the cricket
  6. Well I'm calling it finished, its a brilliantly engineering kit but my building practices have been poor. For me the model is to big for my limited modelling space, i stuffed the decals completly, my surface prep must have been poor, i'm disapointed in my paint finish the large upper wing panels are differant colours and finishes because i painted them individually and didnt blend the finishes. I dont like the patterns on my worn surface area.......etc etc etc I had really high hopes of a showpiece model but alas my skills were not up to the job, I've displayed it under my fish tank and not on my main display...ah well there always another kit to improve again, thanks for looking and the comments. Ps I started a Tamiya tank 1/35 haha
  7. It’s very interesting debate, to be honest if I put a model out there in internet land I expect both good and bad comments and people will always hijack threads because they can. I love opinions and models, I,m one of those people who is not really bothered what happens on the internet i actually post a WIP for myself to look back on more than anything, but also like Kev mentioned I have no one vaguely interested in modelling so it’s nice to chat to my like minded pixel friends, as my wife calls you lot happy modelling
  8. wow, and thats OOB, that engine looks great
  9. very cool, nice hand paintings, i hope to see it at QHME next month
  10. hello fellows Well looks whats back on the bench, well only just on the bench Its rigging time and definatly time to finish this big beast. The size of this model has put me right off the WnW lancaster. i think I'll wait for the nose section releases, detailing cockpits and small sections is what i enjoy the most anyway
  11. What a fine distraction this turned out to be, excellent model, great paints, cracking AM stuff, i bought another oh yes i still have faces to butcher, i mean paint
  12. thanks Brian, i'm having a ball with this thing with wheels base progress
  13. Hello Hello Started the base, ordered some figures, dust pigments arrived, 2 cartons of beer in the fridge, England beat Australia in the cricket, happy modelling this weekend German Shepard ate my emu
  14. The F16 is my fav Tamiya 1/32. Great job so far, cant wait to see more details
