  1. Super impressive build going on here I must say! The only thing I would suggest is having a removable building plate where a mounting pole can go. Not every modeller will want to destroy some ground work to be able to install a mounting pole. Personally I think it would be a selling point to be able to remove a plug rather than have to rebuild some of those details. Looking forward to the next update
  2. thanks guys! It's not perfect but I do like the scheme
  3. Hi guys This is my second to last project for a while before I take a much needed modelling break. I've had this in the unfinished pile for ages and decided to get it done. It was originally going to be in the RAF 20th Anniversary scheme but I got tired of looking at BOG, so I decided to liven it up somewhat into this. I went with the Landor scheme as I thought it would suit it nicely. I used a custom mix of paints and the decals are a mix of Draw Decals for the BA writing, 26 Decals fir the windows and a friend of mine did up the tail logo from an image I found. Kit very kindly offered to do it for me, however, my other friend jumped in and completed them for me I had to do the doors myself using a custom mask based on the dimensions of the 26 set (British Caledonia). They aren't the best but they'll do Anyways, enough talking, here it is - my Landor VC-10: That's it for now, but thanks for looking Si
  4. Thanks for the suggestion regarding the canopy. I should've fixed it up before I posted pics but I just wanted it off my bench. I'll go back and fix it another day I went with the wings in that configuration as I wanted the "raptor" look; as if it were attacking with wings out spread like that. I know I mean :)
  5. hey guys I have been playing around with this F-35 for a few weeks now in between another project I have been tinkering on which will also soon be finished. I've often thought the F-35 was pretty ugly and so decided that I may have to do something about that. I'm not sure it's as pretty as it could be, but I am happy with it I've reversed the wings and made them out of sheet styrene. I added some canards because canards are cool and reversed the tail fins I also added some body panels which you can't really see under the paint. The decals are from an F-15 kit I had lying around except the roundels which I painted on It was just a fun project to help try lift my stymied modelling mood of late. Anyways, tell me what you think - good or bad thanks for looking guys Si
  6. Despite it being a crap kit, you've done an awesome job on it! I love those colours
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Thanks Bryan The paint is just Tamiya black straight from a rattle can Cheers Si
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. I'd love to see you enter this into the Multi Engine GB... hint hint wink wink
  14. 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
  15. As soon as it arrives here im getting one for sure. Been waiting years for an AN225
