    Finished !!! 1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk.V

    Tony, this model really makes my day! Especially I love how the new nose looks on the kit. It really makes a very big difference to the overall look. So much work went into getting that nose sorted by several people.....well done sir! Seeing it finished makes all the hard work on the master seem worthwhile. There is nothing not to like with this, paint, finish and overall presentation are spot on. Cheers from a happy Kiwi! Anthony

    Aires Skyhawk Resin Detail Set

    Hi Mark I have fitted the wheelbay sets into the wing and they were a really good fit. The cockpit goes in pretty well too. However dont fall into the trap I did with it. When test fitting my Kahu cockpit panel/HUD & coaming I had glued the nose wheelwell already glued in and when I went to fit the resin tub I found that it sat on an angle and skewed a little. I had to remove the well. I would say, when you fit the nose wheelwell, position the cockpit tub at the same time or nothing will line up later on. Or glue the tub and well together first and do all at once. I think however it was my fault I couldnt get a good fit, I didnt think far enough ahead. Now when I test fit it drops in nicely. I can highly recommend the Aires stuff, its beautifully cast. Harolds wheels are a must also... HTH, cheers Anthony

    1/18TH JSI F-14B Tomcat conversion

    This is the sort of paint job that turns a model into a piece of art, cannot fault it at all. Looks just like the photos....

    1/48 TA-4K Hasegawa

    Oops sorry I missed your comments guys... Appreciate all the nice comments, Yeah Craig that MA sheet is a mess, even the nose stripes are all wrong. I am glad I fixed it all and the main thing is Jono is happy like me! Devo & Shawn, thanks guys, the gold used was the Mr Color one, the pigment is just so incredibly fine and you see no fleck or sparkle in the finish which was what I wanted. Cheers Anthony
