Wimpy! A Slightly Smaller Build - Vickers Wellington Mk.1A

Posted by toboldlygo , 09 July 2018 - - - - - - · 329 views

When this kit arrived direct from Airfix (courtesy of my regular DPD Courier Boran), on opening the box I knew the Shack would be put on hold temporarily will this kit was started. 
The Aircraft division of the Hornby/Airfix of the design/research team have done an amazing job of this kit - they've captured the Geodetic structure perfectly. ...

Shack Attack - TNBB: Part 4 - Return of the Shack, Chapter I

Posted by toboldlygo , 27 June 2018 - * * * * * · 309 views

I promised the Shack would return in 2018 and she has albeit as a different version - the AEW.2. 
The build so far, is pretty much the same as the MR.2 version I built last year and so far easier the second time around (I guess). 
The photo's are pretty self explainatory, so I won't go into to much detail - unless I have to. 
Basic cockpit...

Ready for transfers. 
 
For such a small fighter there's a lot of Decals!

After a brief interlude (okay a month), due to GWR Loco's - I finally resumed work on the Bf 109... 
Before I masked up the underside, I painted the wheel wells and radiators. 
 
I masked up the underside and parts of the cockpit canopy - which had I pre-painted prior to fitting and masking up (next three photo's show that sequence) ...

A Brief Interlude - A Star is Reborn...

...Or Should that be Repainted?  A client requested I rename his 4013 Knight of St Patrick to 4012 Knight of the Thistle and repaint/rework to GWR post war unlined green - with a few tweaks (more on those later)  I started tender first and began the tedious task of removing the lining and branding from the tender top. Once this was done the ten...

After she made a cameo in my last build and with loco's out of the way it was time to make a start on the 1/48th Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3. 
Being a Collectors Club Model it gives two very different schemes to do one is the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force Evaluation version (Bf 109E-7) and the other is a captured RAF version (Bf 109E-3) - I ch...

An Unusual Build - Westland Wyvern S.4 Part 1

Several moons ago a certain member (@46444) suggested I should check out Trumpeter's Westland Wyvern.. 
I did and little does he know, what a can of rivets it opened.... 
I acquired the kit on a certain auction sight, it arrived just before I finished the Sea Fury. I also ordered the Eduard Photo-Etch set for it... 
 
The kit is amazi...
