    Su-33 Sea Flanker

    That looks fantastic John! Im most impressed that you stuck with it and finished it. Everyone is their own worst critic, including myself, but from where I sit, I can't see anything wrong with it. Its been awesome watching you bring this build to life. Thanks so much for keeping going and posting the updates. Si

    1/72 Rockwell B-1B Lancer ("BONE") bomber

    Very nicely done indeed! I have the Airfix version in the pile but I just can't bring myself to do all the rescribing required or get the AM parts to bring it up to spec. I'll wait for the Modelcollect one to be released I think. I'm going to borrow your window tinting idea, though, for which ever version I get.

    Corvette C-7R

    Hi guys As a side project to my Star Destroyer, I have been building Revell's C-7R for a bit of a change. However, I didn't go down the yellow road, I went down the black road. Thankfully, I didn't have any issues getting my body to fit on or have any interference in the engine and the hood areas. I am painfully aware of the paint bleed at the rear and the other finish issues it has - I will try to fix that up soon. The rear wing is also slightly off which is of course something I fixed AFTER I took the photos. Opps. I took a couple of shots to show the interior before it went in as you don't get to see it all now Well, that's it. It was a fun little side project and I'm glad I did it. It looks like a Corvette and to me, that's what matters Thanks for looking Si

    Short Sunderland MkII

    you really get a sense of scale when you see your hand holding it like that. As much as I would love a kit that size, there's no way I would have any room for it. I shall enjoy watching you bring this monster to life instead

    Lockheed S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    I struggle to comprehend this is scratch built! Do you have something to show next to it that will give a scale perspective (eg, glue bottle or something) ? Fantastic work at any rate!

    Short Sunderland MkII

    All I can say is most pretty much what everyone else has said in that this is one seriously cool project Tom! I had no idea you could even get a 32nd scale Short Sunderland, but I guess in vac form there is more variety. I'd love to know how you can keep these monstrous creations that you seem to have a never ending stream of come off your work bench. We reap the rewards for it none the less with items like this. I'll be tuning in for sure

    Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

    2 days back and I have already pretty much finished the bridge and neck section. I'll run a light grey wash over it once everything has dried and sealed proper. There are still a couple of sections I need to hand brush to bring up to spec. I'll take some lit shots once I have connected the remaining fiber optics. That's it for now. I have to finish painting the big antenna in the middle as well as replace all the broken projections on the shield generators but I'll do that once the bridge is attached to the body As always, thanks for looking Si
  11. looks awesome Troy! Well done mate

    Su-22UM Kitty Hawk 1:48

    That is seriously awesome!! It's hard to tell what's decal and what's paint. Fantastic job on what some say is an overly complex kit - although I do agree that making the fuselage 3 pieces is a pointless exercise though.

    Su-33 Sea Flanker

    mate that's beautiful! I'd love to see this in the plastic, but sadly your not in Oz, so I shall have to make do with the pictures only.

    TU-134 A BG Air Force A-Model 1/72

    I can't believe what an awesome job you've done with this kit - even more credit to you as it's an A-Model kit. The weathering is perfect and I really like the landing gear details. Can't wait to see the end results

    Tamiya 1/24 Calibra DTM - "The Beast In Black"

    I hadn't realised I had not replied to anyone yet - my apologies. Thank you to all for your kind feedback Until recently, I had never been a fan of Matte Black - but my tastes seem to have changed somewhat without me realising it I got lucky a couple of days ago and got myself a Bruno Spengler 2012 BMW DTM as well as the Corvette C7R - both Revell kits. Neither kit will be what the box gives you They will be in at home by the time I get back to Oz Thanks again guys Si
