  1. Thank you Kev and all at LSP. I had completely forgotten about the raffle so this was a really nice surprise! cheers Matt
  2. Quick update as I have managed to get some paint on the cockpit. I’ve included some seat belts from my spares box and I’ve have used the Eduard pe set which looks ok but think the green is a little light, but as the cockpit will be quite dark with the canopy on I think this will be an advantage! cheers. Matt
  3. Hi Tom, good to hear from you and glad to have you along for this one! Cheers. Matt
  4. Thank you for the link, great info. I really like the cocktail hour artwork and is probably my first choice at the moment. Though the different nose turret and lack of a ball turret may be a deal breaker!
  5. Hi Ron, thanks for the info... I knew it was too good to be true! Looks like I will be getting a set of True details resin wheels for this kit! cheers. Matt
  6. Hi Andy, I had heard wheels were an issue! I’m using a set of Eduard B17 resin wheels I have spare which I believe are ok. And I got the true details resin wheel set for the B25 which has 2 nose wheels one of which I will use for the B24. I’ve not tried it yet but I’m hopeful it will work. cheers matt
  7. Hi I was thinking of either one of these from the new profimodeller decal sheets. cheers matt
  8. I have already started the HK models b25 and I don’t generally build more than 1 kit at once. But I was sat in my modelling area and the big b24 box caught my eye! You know what it’s like, get the box down, study the artwork. Open the lid and look at all the plastic, maybe get a spruce or 2 out of their plastic bag. Perhaps snip a part or even 3 off to see how they fit and before you know it the Tamiya extra thin is out and you are building the kit! This though is going to be a long term build, the plan is to get as much of the major construction finished as possible and then rivet the whole airframe. I’ve never done this before but when compared to my b17. It really seems to be needed in such a big kit. Cheers matt
  9. Nice choices! Good luck with your builds! Cheers. Matt
  10. Good luck with it, Please post a picture or 2 when you are finished. Cheers. Matt
  11. This has been on the back burner whilst I was building the hellcat, but had time to do a little painting over the last few nights. I’m learning a lot and having fun. Cheers. Matt
  12. Ok so I’ve had this in my stash for ages and only now do I feel confident to build it. I’m really excited about the prospect and can’t wait to get started. Over the years I’ve had it I’ve bought several aftermarket items, resin wheels, decals, paint masks and the ‘big ed’ pe set. I bought this last item a while ago and even though I’m not a massive pe fan I’m going to give it a go... at least some of it anyway. Not 100% sure which particular aircraft I will build, it will be an OD machine with a NMF underside that is for sure. cheers matt
  13. Sorry Steve it won’t be at Telford, though I am planning to be there on the Saturday. It will be my first visit and I’m really looking forward to it. Cheers. Matt
  14. Very observant! I was sure no one would notice! Yes I broke it off and glued it back the wrong way.
  15. Hi All, the big airfix hellcat is finally finished! An enjoyable build of a really Great kit. No real issues just took some careful building and plenty of dry fitting before glueing in place. The blue was tricky to get any depth and variation and didn’t really like being worked with oils. I used a neutral wash for panel lines and as a filter. Resin wheels was the only after market and all markings are painted. cheers Matt
