Here's 1/24th scale ME109 G2 Trop "Black six" I finished a few weeks ago.

Thought some peoples might be interested.

Would like to see if any others are budding modellers?

Very good :)

I've got a load of models right now. At the moment I'm working on a 1/350 Type VIIC U-boat, but I've run out of glue, so things are difficult to say the least :)

Thanks for the comments guys.

Only U boat kit I have made recently was the revel 1/72nd type VIIc

Very nice work. I'm just getting back into it after a brief sabbatical of around 35 years. I'll see if I can get some photos which don't show some of the horrors....

Don´t worry. There are many horrors to be found on the pictures I posted as well. The only difference between You and me is, that I know exactly where they are :)

And a last one from me for now.

Very kind of you. I've built up the kind of stash I could only have dreamed of when I was a nipper, including a duplicate LaGG and Il-2 to have another go at. It's really absorbing and helps to forget some of the stresses of real life! I may never produce anything as good as some of the other stuff I've seen, but I'll enjoy myself trying.

I can only agree. That´s exactly how I feel. I may not be the right person to give advice, but if You keep up, You will see progress, getting better with every model You finish.

All those pics look great to me.

I think Modelling is a style thing especially when it comes to choices of how and how not to build.

 

I personally love the builds you have done.

Keep it up. :salute:

Thanks for posting the pictures everyone.

 

Was a modellor myself many years ago. Feel the pull to return now and again, especially after seeing some of the great results here, but just don't have the time unfortunately.

Yes great models everyone.

 

I,m the same with time I'm building a 32" long X wing fighter at the moment.....on and off.

 

Here's a 32" Skydiver model I made and sold last year.

LOL, not a Pro by no means, but been at this game a long time now and still learning new techniques .

 

What's that Sallee?, A blacckburn Roc or Skua? I,m no expert on RN or Fleet air arm aircraft.

 

Looks great though.

 

!/72nd ?

 

Here's some vintage jet too.

 

Revell 1/32nd Hunter.

Gorgeous Hunter!
It's a roc. Ugly brute but I love it. It's 1/72...practising for the 1/48 version. Bit of a thing about rocs and so on at the moment.

Thought it was a Roc.

 

Nice to see some different and unusual aircraft for a change, I think Blackburn's designs were no ace aircraft(except the Buccaneer) but they all filled a gap and purpose in their time and served well.

 

Nice one. :salute:

 

BTW the Revell Hunter kit is a real beauty, I found no vices in this kit which is a rarity.

Yes, I'm in a FAR mood. Have 1/48 skua, roc and fulmar to do. I think Blackburn must have made some of the ugliest aircraft in the world. The Blackburn blackburn springs to mind. Speaking of kits going together well...I had to trim the gun mount down to get the barrels to fit through the transparency but now they don't fit around the hump in the fuselage behind the turret!

Great looking models! I recently finished off building a spray booth so I can get back to modeling. Have a King Tiger waiting on paint and then maybe a Yak 1 I have.

My Favourite FAA aircraft is the Sea Fury...I had a R/C Fury a few years back too.

 

I cannot remember the last model I built straight from the box without some form of modifications needed.

 

Sorry, Oh yes I can, it was my Trumpeter 1:24th Spitfire 5b....a truly great Model kit....no build problems at all.

A rare thing these days.

Went to a model show 2 weeks ago...They had the new Trumpeter 1:16Tth King Tiger there.....wow!, If only I had the money .... mmmmmm.

 

I have turntables for spraying but not enough room for a spray booth sadly, Good luck with that Keonig look forward to some pics too.

It is supposed to be Costa rica government forces 1955.

 

Luckily I got a new canopy and finished the Mustang.

That does look great. I have Tamiya Il-2 in 1/48 which is supposed to be a gem.

Beautiful. Looks appropriately well worn. Interesting subject as well.
