  1. I stand totally corrected Dallas. Good job 😉
  2. Looks fantastic Dallas, like the tarnished look of the mirrors. I think the headlight lense should be horizontal tho....😐 Cheers Doc
  3. So good to see an old Airfix kit being resurrected from the grave and look forward to seeing this one come together. It is very difficult to resist adding detail but I'm sure once you get the fit issues sorted this will be a cracker. I picked up a 1/24 Hurricane original boxing a while ago for £9 and its 'in the stash' waiting to go, mind you it has been there for about 10 years! Cheers Doc
  4. No problem Imraan, as expected you are making such a better job of it than I ever could! The RB Motion kit is labelled as a 'sidepod kit' but as you can see with over 650 parts it is so much more than that. The kits are rare with only 20-30 being manufactured and the one time I did see one for sale it went for over $1000. Of course you still need the skill on show here to create a masterpiece. Sorry to hear of the stall Imster but keep plugging away its looking real special. Doc
  5. Hold on Imster, just pulling up a chair. Looking forward to what you have planned Doc
  6. Despite all she threw at you I think it turned out a real stunner Kev, and one to be proud of. If you hadn't pointed out the issues I don't think anyone would notice and the paint finish is superb. Lets hope the next one tries not to trip you up so much, possibly a Tamiya offering Thanks for sharing your build. Doc
  7. John, let me see what I can find and I will send them your way FOC. Doc
  8. In the immortal words of Mr Frank Carson ' That's a Cracker! ' . Great build Dallas and some lovely detail in there. What happened to the catch bottle at the front end? Doc
  9. Thx all, really appreciate your comments and from such esteemed builders. Doc
  10. Superb work as always Sandro. Great livery for this bike and exhaust work is sublime. Doc
  11. Thx guys. John the decals I had intended to print to decal paper and use these, however metallic stripes could not be reproduced so I used chrome gold vinyl, benefits of owning a sign company I have plenty of coloured vinyl offcuts for this work, the downside is the extra thickness a vinyl sticker produces on the surface. So all the logos and sponsor decals reproduced and printed to clear vinyl. I printed a ton of spares so can send them to you if your interested in a Merkel Rumi bike. As for the violet colour I still think my colour is a little off and needs to be hint redder but by the 3rd colour mixing attempt I lost patience and went for it. A closer starting point might have been this https://www.hiroboy.com/Jaguar_XJR8_Silk_Cut_Paint_Set_2x30ml--product--4930.html from Zero. Hope this helps Doc
  12. Very nice idea and great model. Almost as bright as the X1 I'm building Love the race planes and any spit with a griffon up front should give the Mustangs a run for their money. Doc
  13. I've started to put freshly painted parts into a sealed plastic box to dry, so straight from the airbrush booth and into the sealed tub. Helps stop airbourne particles settling on the wet surface, especially if you are using the airing cupboard to dry them, more fluff and fibres than anywhere else in the house to be honest! Doc
  14. Good to see you are still fighting the good fight Kev! Some models you just have to chalk up to experience and move on, worse case is a model you have lost interest in and the hobby becomes a chore. I think the finish will be great but I know you are a perfectionist. There is always the next kit to start fresh. Keep at it. Doc
  15. Looks beautiful so far D ! As someone who has researched this beast way too much everything looks spot on so far. Between yours and Imster's build I'm not sure I will ever have the courage to show mine here. Looking forward to the progress. Doc
