one more picture of this old build, wth 1/72 cars, Minis, appropriately, and in appropriate colors too

it was tempting, and I had this remainder from earlier projects, a Victor fuselage, which deserved its moment of glory, even without the cockpit, but even older I had this head of Ariane 5 rocket which fit just naturally, like all the rest : and when nature fits, why resist?

Cool idea. And somehow the combo appears quite plausible, I like that.

Makes me think about an asymmterical Bv 194 on floats for the upcoming GB...?

Would have driven definitively crazy the engineers charged with calculating the various stresses, reaction forces, aerodynamics etc  :banghead: :wacko:

I've got the main colours done and dusted now after another 'mask and spray' session, and I've added a matt black lower surround to the windscreen too. I'm still not sure about that, and I'll wait until I have some decals on to see how it looks then.

It's not the best paintjob I've ever done by far, there's a couple of thin runs, on the underside thank goodness, and some rough borders too, but frankly I'm past caring with this blasted thing now. So long as it looks approximately as I intended it'll have to do.

Oh yes, the AAR probe snapped off AGAIN, and I've lost a few more aerials, ho hum..........

Recent additions to my stash:

Amodel 1/72 AS-9 Kyle - 2 big missiles + carts
AZ Model 1/72 AH-1G Cobra - for a fiver, sans decals - good deal, I think!
Eduard 1/72 Mi-24 Hind Czech Combo - my third Czech Dual Combo and Zvezda Hinds No. 15 and 16 respectively  :mellow:
Hobbycraft  1/72 Sabre Mk. 6 - there's no such things as too many Sabres!
Kitech 1/72 AH-1Z Viper -  pretty cheap. Donor kit for some radically different AH-1 Super Cobra.
Mach2 1/72  AS-550 Fennec Danish Army - my first Mach 2 kit. Surely they can't be THAT horrible, now, can they? Yes.  :banghead: They.  :banghead: Can.  :banghead:
Modelsvit 1/72 Yak-140 - idea is to build a production version of this, possibly with some AAMs
Plastyk 1/72 HH-3 Jolly Grean Giant - horrible kit, but maybe good fuselage donor for an American Hind-ish conversion.
Revell/Italeri 1/72 AH-1W Super Cobra - came started, but with the updated exhausts - cheap!
Special Hobby 1/72 Spitfire Mk.21 contra-prop - on sale at a tenner, I got this one for all the spare parts included in this release - props, canopies, radiators, underwing stores,...

Revell 1/118 Martin PBM Mariner - the plan is to use it as a basis for a scale-o-arama 1/72 fighter/fighter-bomber

TAKOM 1/35 AML-90 - gorgeous little kit.

Just back from a local model shop with a couple of additions to the stash.
Airfix 1/72 Canberra B.(I)8 x2

Score!  :wub:

Less Ebola-Couch, more Camo-Acid-Trip!  ;D


Going through for second coats, then I'll put in borders, then I'll clean up the negative space.

There for a minute I started gettin nutty again and put a dab of red up on here.....    :banghead:   Had to pump brakes on that one.   :-X ;D

I haven't resurrected anything, mate! If there are images showing, they were showing when I went through the pages.

This is about bringing attention to the nominations that have lost their links, either through the PB fiasco or other means.



If there are any images showing in my post above ... I can't see them. :unsure:


Same here... and i have that PB image fix installed and it doesn't change a thing... :unsure:

That's really weird, when I first looked at your thread y'day I could see maybe 30% of the pics.

Now I can't see any, just PB icon after PB icon.  :banghead: :banghead:

Mixed up a darkish tan color.

FAR from being done but I think this is MUCH improved! Definitely not going to throw in the towel on this scheme yet.



I'm trying things as I go, some of this stuff won't make the cut, and some of the rest will be altered or deleted.

There ya go!  :thumbsup: Looks better with that tone... and looking at it now, it makes me think of it like it was a commemorative scheme or something  similar. I'm curious about how it's gonna look when it's all finished.

Upcoming events / Re: IPMS(UK) Scale Model World 2017 - 11/12 November

Sadly chaps a work commitment means I can't make it this year, which is a bummer as I've not been to a show this year and I always look forward to catching up with folk.

And the AZ SR53 will have to wait.

I'm sure all will have a great time, and the SIG display will be excellent.


That's a big pain Dave, you'll be missed, as well as your exotic creations.
To right! You will be missed Dave.

On a similar note. Althou Jim wont be at the show, some of his most recent builds will be. They are currently in my care.
