Revell 1/72 McDonnell F-101B Voodoo

Morning all, Another day, another completion. The next instalment in my Century Series theme, this is Revell's F-101B Voodoo. A decent kit with largely excellent fit, although I needed to do a bit of sanding and trimming to get the cockpit and nosegear bay to fit nicely. Otherwise, it was largely pr...

Re: Arma Hobby 1/72 Yakovlev Yak-1B

Thanks Ian, much appreciated. Arma Hobby are currently setting the 1/72 world alight with the quality of their kits, very much looking forward to their new P-51B/C coming later this year. Good luck with the Kitty Hawk, I've not built anything of theirs but from what I understand they can be a bit hi...

Arma Hobby 1/72 Yakovlev Yak-1B

Morning all, Next off the production line is the delightful little Yak-1B from Arma Hobby. A really great little kit to put together with excellent details and zero fit issues. This is the expert boxing finished completely OOB using Hataka Orange Line lacquers as ever. https://live.staticflickr.com/...

Trumpeter 1/72 North American F-100C Super Sabre

Evening all, My first of the new year, and with it a change of theme. This is Trumpeter's F-100C Super Sabre, finished OOB with the exception of the decals which came from an Xtradecal sheet. I wasn't brave enough to go with the NMF finishes of the kit options, plus I think the SEA scheme looks grea...

Shaun's 2020 Review

Afternoon all, Thought I'd follow Tommy's lead and post a review of my own. 2020 has obviously been largely terrible in so many ways, but there were a few positives to be taken from it. Working reduced hours has presented me with opportunities to get to airfields I wouldn't normally be able to visit...

Evening all, Seems I had plenty of time to squeeze one more build for the year in. This is the tidy little 1/72 A-4E Skyhawk from Fujimi. Other than a Pavla ejection seat, I've built it from the box, finishing it as one of the Top Gun adversary jets. The kit decals weren't the best sadly, but fortun...

Thanks both, much appreciated 👏

Ant, the tinting was achieved by simply adding a few drops of Tamiya clear Yellow to Blue until the colour looked about right and spraying it on the inside of the canopy 👍
