I gave up the idea of this being a "quick, simple build" long ago....  <_<


I'm not sure there is a 'quick, simple build' possible with those ancient Airfix 1/144 kits sadly.  :banghead:

Maybe the DC9-30 and the Comet 4 may work better as they re-furbished both of them maybe 10 yrs ago.

I thought that was real!!  I guess the first clue should have been the fact I'd never seen it before.  ;D   

 Yeah, I'd say his work is pretty cool.  ;D :mellow: :mellow:   This thing is gorgeous, I can see why you were inspired and I am, too.


Yes, Stephane's a true artist.  :thumbsup:

Take a look at his gallery on DeviantArt, it'll keep you occupied for a few hours. ;D He's on a TinTin kick at the moment but scroll down and you'll find DOZENS of his amazing aircraft.

'What-If' Turkey was on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain at the end of WW2?

The Soviets were quite keen to sell the Su-7 on the market, not only to Algeria and India but also offered to Pakistan in 1967.  So I can imagine Turkey ordering the type alongside Western aircraft in a slightly-more-neutral alternative timeline.

 ;D ;D

Thanks!!  That was the the last thing hanging me up, now I can proceed with the build!

But, uhhhhh, you know me..  now that I know the truth, I'm going to have to fill that stuff in and get it all level and even with the fuselage.  :mellow:

At this point, I don't really mind. I gave up the idea of this being a "quick, simple build" long ago....  <_<

Another one of Stephane Baumont's wonderful designs.  :thumbsup:

And the inspiration for my Tri-Stang too.

I miss his amazing photographic quality artworks on here.  :banghead:

No, BAC 1-11 windscreens aren't recessed, that's just worn moulds in Airfix's part I expect.

But as you're using a decal windscreen the silver frames will disguise the recess and no-one will know.  :thumbsup:

Ask me how I know this. ( Zenrat Industries)  ;D

Looking forward to the finished result.

Have you considered a two seat trainer DH Swallow?


No, but it's a good idea.  ;D

Well, I went for the "extra" day thinking it would be nice to "get ahead" and not have such a rough day Sunday. I HAD a new lawn to do that day and it's always nice to set aside extra time in case things get difficult. So, I had 5 jobs today, trash then 4 properties to mow lawn. Just to come home and see that this person I was going to go to Sunday CANCELED on me. Hottest day of the year, over 110 and I scheduled the roughest day of the year because I WAS behind, almost am again, and didn't want to be there again... only to find I wasted my time out in this god awful heat.    Second time this week some wanker did this to me. That's real money, and time, that I'm losing when these people do this. It's so rude! Don't even have to dignity to speak to me.  :-\    All part of the territory though!! Fact of the matter is, I'm glad I'm ahead now and I was instantly able to fill the missing Sunday slot with another job.  ;D    Just one, though!!!! I should make it home pretty early and be able to work on builds all day.  ;D

ANYWAY. So I actually managed to work on THREE builds, thoough!!  ;D ;D ;D   And, amazingly, no hitches. Everything went smoothly and all three have progressed without having anything REgress.

So, the BAC-111 is now ready to have the wing fences glued on and actual paint work started, with one caveat: I'm starting to wonder about the wind screens. What I did was glue in the factory glass and smoothed it over. I think it will work just fine but was the glass on the actual 1-11 recessed like this? I mean, this is how the kit was designed... I didn't alter it any. Since I'm using aftermarket windscreen decals I kind of wonder how they'll work and again if the windscreens were even recessed to begin with.





Sam story on Yak-53 pretty much. It is now primed and ready for actual paint! Nothing more to report on that one other than I'm glad it's ready. All downhill from here!






Lastly, I looked at my Spitfire and found that only one side of the fuselage was painted incorrectly so that helps. Still, the port side and top were painted wrong so I went ahead and painted green on in the proper fashion then next round I'll come back with brown to correct it all then it's time to peel off the masking and do all the cut-in and touch-up.
