Clifford Keesler Glad to see you finished her, and did her justice.
01. October 2017 at 23:20:58
Gareth Windsor I some how missed your last comment Kerry. Thanks. Once again modellers like yourself are inspiring and help me up my game. I can hardly believe the improvements in my own work since joining this website.
02. October 2017 at 11:53:52
Kerry Cox Gareth. The same applied to me too mate. The information and support one can obtain being part of SM is awesome.
I know, like you, all my modelling has become more worth while as it is out in the world stage now, and that has got to make us a tad more attentive to what we see, and, Do. hehehehe
Thank you too for your comment mate.
Kez. :)

Mike Daniels Couldn't agree more Kerry and Gareth. You see/learn something new pretty much every day. And then you can get the nitty gritty as well from the masters themselves!! Most places charge for that sort of access.
02. October 2017 at 20:08:47
Kerry Cox Mike. Ain't that the truth. LOL :)
02. October 2017 at 20:53:17
Gareth Windsor I have managed to drop this model as well as all the other models in the large box I had put them in for the big house move last week. All seems repairable thankfully. On a bright note I watched a great model making video on YouTube about taking photos. I down loaded Snapseed and quite happy with what you can do just on your smart phone.

11. August 2018 at 16:05:17
Gareth Windsor Thanks all. I got the "wow, cool" from my son which made it all worth while. Once again I look back at how I was making models a few years ago and how they look now. It has a lot to do with members here. Inspiration, advice and encouragement.

Just finished building this kit, the Revell 1:48 F-15C Eagle. It the old 1970's mould (date moulded on the tail plane) so has some of the good old Revell issues with sink marks, flash and some fitting. However, the decals are great and if you can get it for half price at Hobby Lobby like I did (other shops are available), it's worth it. It makes into a nice model in the end.
Ups:- Decals, easy build, price and size.

Downs :- Raised panel lines, sink marks and flash and some fit issues.

Alan Rush Nice collection. You mentioned service in the Navy and I detect a certain bias toward naval aviation. :) Nice tip of the hat to the Canadian Armed Forces with the Hawk you have finished.
27. February 2014 at 02:59:49
Gareth Windsor Thanks Alan. Yes, I have quite the collection of Fleet Air Arm models waiting for my attention. I'm 23 years in the Royal Navy and still going. As for the Canadian connection, the wife is from Toronto.
28. February 2014 at 20:22:08
Alan Rush OK. I live in Courtice, just east of Toronto, next to Oshawa. I worked for a time in Scarborough as well. I grew up in Windsor, Ontario and after a few other places have settled here with my family.
I am collecting some kits to mark as Canadian vehicles, especially for the Ontario Regiment, which is based in Oshawa. I volunteer at the Regiment museum and wanted to finish some kits for their time in Italy in WWII.

An awesome collection of aircraft Gareth.

Especially the Swordfish. !
But where did you get that launch controller from. ??? :) :) :)
28. June 2018 at 02:40:38
Spanjaard great collection!, yes, the pilot is giving all his attention to the controller, no doubt :D

Kerry Cox I am SO happy for you Gareth. There will be many happy days ahead mate. And the basement.! ? Yeah, solid gold. hehehehe :)
01. August 2018 at 02:33:09
Clifford Keesler Cool, I am happy for you Gareth. Nice project. That is one that is on my list.
01. August 2018 at 02:48:09
Gareth Windsor So I found a database of aircraft side numbers and it says that JZ527 (the "Yanks in Roundals" decals i have) is actually a TBF-1C (Avenger Mk2) not a TBM as the instructions say. General Motors started supplying TBM-3's (Avenger Mk3) from JZ635. So my next bit of research....... When the aircraft arrived in the UK they were sent to Blackburn to be modified for the Fleet Air Arm. It appears that this was mostly just radios and seat straps. The Observers seat was also fitted directly behind the pilot (US Avengers have radio equipment here), but it seems that at some point this seat was removed to accommodate the increasing amount of electronics that were being developed rapidly.
I have a feeling I can ignore the extra seat as the decals are for a 1945 aircraft.

Credit must also go to Dana Bell. His article in the October 1997 FineScale Modeler magazine. His 3 volume set Air Force Colors contains some useful info.

"TBF-1 / TBF-1C, Avenger. Cockpit: FS 34058 Bronze Green forward from the bulkhead with the window (in front of the turret). FS 34151 Interior Green for the rear crew areas. Light Gray (Grumman Gray) inside the cowling, (FS 36440 is very close) and accessory area. The stainless steel 'Dishpan' firewall was unpainted and often quite bright. Torpedo bay: FS 34151. Remember on all of these a/c the general rule is that the wheel bays, landing gear struts, wheel centers, landing flap bays, etc. are the under surface color. On the Avenger the inside of the flap itself was the upper surface color with the inside of the flap well on the under surface of the wing being the bottom color."
01. August 2018 at 16:17:48
Kerry Cox Thank you again Gareth. These links are fantastic. :)
Cheers mate.
01. August 2018 at 21:24:25

Gareth Windsor Not that this was going quickly anyway, but all projects are on hold as I'm packing everything up. The wife and I are in the process of buying a new house, big move is September 27th, but we need to sell our place too. New place has a great space for a man-cave, so for the first time in my life I am going to have a work bench for modelling. For me, the most exciting part of the move.
26. June 2018 at 13:36:59
Maciej Bellos Good for you Gareth! Send us a pic of your mancave when it's ready!
