  1. My Month long exile from the work bench is over. I spent two weeks in hospital for surgery on my leg and another two weeks at home and though I still have over 120 staples in my left thigh, I couldn't stay away from the bench any longer. Over the month away I spent a heap of time thinking about and researching my next builds and purchasing some new kits. In the end it came down to a 1/35 Blackhawk or a 1/48 Meteor F.8. The Meteor ended up winning, but as I had two kits in the stash and wanted to do one in flight and one with the engines and guns exposed, I decided to do the two at the same tim
  2. I'd like to present to you all my just completed build, the Kinetic/Academy F/A-18B done as the RAAF's 3 Squadron A21-103. Started December 24/12/2017, finished 4/3/2018.
  3. Hi guys, It's 6:00 Am on Christmas morning and I can't sleep, So i thought I'd get online and show you what I've been up to so far over my Christmas / New Years holidays. I decided to start my 2018 big and have begun work on Kinetics 1/32 F/A-18 A/B Hornet. This is a re-issue of the Academy kit. Besides the bang seats, decals and anything I scratch up, I think this kit will be mostly OOB. Like with most of my builds, I started by researching what modifications I would need to make to the kit parts, and seeing which parts might need to be replaced. I'd remembered seeing this photo in a
  4. Hi! I decided to finish my old project. It is a Spitfire Mk Vc conversion based on old Hasegawa Vb and new Revell Mk II kits. I added new wing bubbles and ammo panels, new shape of plate for Hasegawa windscreen. From Japanese kit i used Vokes Filter too. Master gun barrels and Montex mask were needed.
  5. After finishing one of my other 1/72 projects, today I started on my next big project. A Tamiya 1/32 P-51D Mustang which will be done up as a RAAF 77 Squadron plane, based out of Japan during the early years of the Korean Police Action. I have been collecting a bit of aftermarket for this for a while, though whilst doing so, I'll be using much of the what you see here. I'll be using my Silhouette cutter again for many of the markings. So after spending in the morning pouring over my copy of Mustangs, ADF serials, Large Scale Planes and some other books, I got started. It alwa
  6. Diorama: Bristol Beaufighter Mk 1C - No. 30 Squadron RAAF ( A19-15 'O') - Australia I tried to Catch the Atmosphere of Ward's Airstrip, Port Moresby 1942, in the Diorama. Model Kit: 1/32 Revell Bristol Beaufighter with a lot of scratchbuilding. My good old Revell 1/32 (1975?) was taken apart and had a complete overhaul, inside and out. The project took around a year or so, reworking all of the model until i was happy with it: Complete interior rebuild, wheelbays, gunbays & removeable panels. Sanding and rescribing of panel lines & rivetting. Diorama: British built Bri
  7. I had been contemplating building a C-47 Dakota for a while and still plan to, but when it looked like decals i was after might be a while in coming, I went back to the stash and had another look, and thats when I saw it. The Spartan. As A34-003 has just been delivered to Australia, I saw it was a fitting time. I opened up the kit and boy was I surprised with the detail and resources within. You get a full colour photo booklet detailing both the inside and out of the real thing. The instruction booklet is well drawn and easy to follow, though the colour call out doesn't always match th
  8. Alright, lets get into this. I have a rule that I have no more than two builds on the go at once. This keeps models from stagnating on the shelf of doom and allows me to keep track of where I am at more easily. With my current 1/48 Kitty Hawk F-35A build so near to completion (it will be finished today) I decided it was time to start on a project I have been looking forward to starting for a while. A F-4E Phantom II as they were seen when the Royal Australian Airforce briefly had them on loan from the US, whilst waiting for our order of F-111's to be ready. I had been collecting afte
  9. G'day, I am building the ancient revell Mirage with the aim of using as little of the kit parts as possible! The only parts that I will be using (at this stage) will be the wings, fuselage, clear parts and some of the drop tanks. Where no aftermarket part exists for it, I will be scratch building the part and casting it in resin. I will be making multiple copies and offering them for sale if there is enough interest. So lets start. As the nose cone needed re-scribing I decided that I would master it and cast it. This is the end result and I have run a wash through the panel lines to show the
