  1. It’s amazing how much they become a big part of a family, absolutely mans best friend! Sorry for the loss.
  2. I think that some manufacturers are able to get around it by their models being nothing like the aircraft they trying to represent.
  3. Looking sooo good, I always have a tv on in my hobby room, how many Star Wars movies have been on in the back ground whilst working on this beast?
  4. If it’s not a Jolly Rogers bird, low viz is the way to go, option 3 for me.
  5. Love that paint and the detail in the bomb bays! Very nice.
  6. I’ve gone the other way, 1/32 to 1/48 and I’m currently building a s3 Viking, and I’ve got all Metallic Details wheel wells, bomb bay and engines. All are first class resin kits, and I’ll be getting the sets for the b1b lancer as I’ve just picked up the new release kit from Revell.
  7. I’ve built all four kits, Trumpeter and Tamiya F-14’s, and Tamiya and Academy F-16’s. what others have said about the Tomcats is in my opinion correct. Tamiya has a better shape, but Trumpeter has better aftermarket options, and it needs it. I personally prefer the Trumpeter kit fully loaded with Aires and Zactomodels gear. With the Vipers, The Tamiya kit is slightly better, but I preferred the Academy kit, it builds really well, I think it has better surface details and Zactomodels produce both the small and large mouth intakes. Combine the small intake from Zactomodels and the Kasl exhaust, and you’re on your way to a masterpiece!
  8. The Tamiya dealer in Australia is the same, excellent service, you just require the spruce number, pay for it with a quote for the part and shipping on the spot, and two weeks later you’ve got the parts. For other brands I’ve used e bay. Which has been very good and at a decent price.
  9. You’ll need to let us know what magazine, I think everyone that has followed this build will be getting a copy! Once again, and I know it’s been said a thousand times, absolute masterpiece!
  10. I also like Hannants and BNA models.
  11. Simply amazing work Oliver, everything here is just perfect! I’d imagine that you could look at the really thing for hours, and not see all of the details that you’ve done. After a masterpiece like this, what’s next on your modelling desk?
  12. For me, my best purchase has been a 1/48 Tamils F-14a. I love the larger kits, but I haven’t finished anything in over three years, something needed to change! I thought I’d give 1/48 a crack, so I might as well get my favourite plane, the mighty Tomcat, and it’s been the best thing I’ve done, I’m enjoying the hobby again. It also opens the door to many planes I love, that will never be made in 1/32. I just don’t know if I should do a build thread on it in the non LSP section. If anyone is thinking of a smaller Tomcat, it’s highly recommend!!!
  13. Looking fantastic, this is really bring back some memories, I loved watching the dukes of hazard, and I started building car kit similar to these when I was about 7 years old. Keep up the great work
  14. Looks like I'll be buying a few more vipers! I was already eyeing off an Academy f-16 so I could do a blizzard scheme after my Alaskan splinter.
