Rounding out the year - Dutch F-35A

And another - this has been in the back burner for a while and due to the ram stencils not being included in the kit, my enthusiasm to complete it wained. That was until DN Models released their stencil masking set for the RAM panels, which were not cheap, however were so easy and quick to use. Comp...

Its been an interesting build, which I have enjoyed but I am please to get it completed. It just was so time consuming and I h...

I bullt one for Airfix magazine a few years back now. To get the flint grey hue colour I sprayed Tamiya xf-4 as a primer then used lifecolour ua124 flint grey over the top. Worked a treat.

Re: A-10A Thunderbolt II - 1/32 Scale Trumpeter with extras

Week 2 – 3 Bit of an update on the A-10. The fuselage and wings are now attached – a lot of work has happened in the background to ensure a smooth fit to the fuselage and being honest it has not been the easiest to get right. The fuselage halves had the majority of the locator pins broken off, so to...

Good to see you on here with the build Rod!

Looks like a lot of work, but that being said, most Trumpeter kits are the same as I am finding the same gaps on my A-10 as we speak!

Look forward to seeing more once you are settled and up and running again!

Why not create a new one? Be a blast to do the starter group build one.

Cheers guys - I will let the mods decide if they wish to pin or not.

Just cracking on with the cockpit and internals here at the moment. Will get a post with photos in the next week.

I understand that Rod might be joining me with a build as well...
