Ok, here is a quick look at my next project. This is the Combat Models F-106. I picked this up about 8 months ago and just recently bumped this up to the "Next" pile. Yes I know, I already have a couple of builds going, but this has been calling me. I have already cut the parts out from the backing sheet. Surface detail is quite good for a vac. It has a mix of recessed panel lines and raised panels. It comes with 2 vac canopies. Anyway I will begin construction slowly as I wrap up other projects. Here is an overall shot of the main c
OK, I'll take the plunge (gulp)....a good excuse to start my CM Avro Anson vacuform. The chances of finding out which Anson(s) Brown flew are slim to zero so mine will probably be one of the ones that my father flew on a regular basis. I've built a couple of the Classic Airframes 1/48th Ansons and I also have an unbuilt one so I can use that as a reference and to scale up areas to our scale. It's a good job there's a long time frame on this GB! Max
As my Nieuport Sesquiplane is nearing completion and whilst Tamiya's X-22 gloss varnish dries off (what a fantastic product ! Beats hands down any floor polish ), I have decided to start another project. I must be a glutton for punishment, as I have chosen another vac-form kit. But whilst the AirCraft kit was well engineered, this one is from Combat Models and promises to be a more ... manly endeavour . I have chosen a difficult subject, with plenty of struts, a parasol wing, floats, large transparent areas, a landing gear, a visible single P&W R-985 Wasp Jr engine... Plenty of re
I've just received the vacuform Anson that I ordered from Jeff at Combat Models - Parcelfarce managed to **** up the delivery and HMRC (bless them!) charged me import duties despite the fact that Jeff had put the correct code on the label to show that it was tax exempt, so I've got a battle with both to claim back the Â£22.00 that I had to stump up before delivery was possible, but that will doubtless be a continuing saga! The "kit" is pretty basic and will need a lot of scratch building to add details, both internally and on the wings and tailplanes to replicate, for instance the prominen
