Airfix, RAF, 1/48th Scale and 2 more...
 
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 Evaluation version (Bf 109E-7) and the other is a captured RAF version (Bf 109E-3) - I chose the latter. 
Compared to my...

An Unusual Build - Westland Wyvern S.4 Part 2

Posted by toboldlygo , 03 May 2018 - * * * * * · 427 views

Part two of this epic build, this kit is more like a 1/24th scale kit due to the number of parts.. 
Aerial torpedo assembled and test fitted. 
 
RATOG's (Rocket Assisted Take Off Gear) assembled and test fitted. 
 
So many assemblies, so much to paint. 
 
Sitting on her wheels (temporarily) . 
 
Lots of Sky...

An Unusual Build - Westland Wyvern S.4 Part 1

Posted by toboldlygo , 13 April 2018 - * * * * * · 403 views

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...

Once upon at time there was a Castle Class on a Layout thread, far, far, away - ANTB (A Nod to Brent to be precise) 
An evil and cruel Weathering and renumbering outfit tried to turn her to the Darkside (well stripey brown if I'm totally honest) 
Her owner sent out a distress call to the Malachite Green & Sunshine Yellow Hospital for Sick B...

Yet Another Slightly Smaller Build - Hawker Sea Fury FB.11

Posted by toboldlygo , 02 March 2018 - * * * * * · 411 views

Many moon's ago (last year to be precise) I built the 1/24th Scale Typhoon, now it's time for her 'Grandchild' the Sea Fury - also by Airfix, but in 1/48th Scale.  The Sea Fury entered service too late to see action in WW2, she was herself a development from the 'Tempest and the Typhoon' and with the coming of the Jet's - the fastest production pisto...

Another update, though progress has slowed due to me having the cold from hell.. 
 
Most of the underside bits added - the [s]tropical radiator Vokes Air Filter required some serious fettling to fit properly) 
 
 
 
A small amount of filler was required to get all the unsightly gaps filled (and the redundant gun position...

With a moulding that is nearly as old as me - some extreme measures were employed... If in doubt - deploy the mole-grips..     (another cameo)    Fuselage done... On with the wing assembly and a whole lot of guess work as to where the cannon go (the instructions give no clues)         Unlike the...
