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.

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.
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.
Choppa Nutta Me too as you gave me a useful link that helps me out, thank you !

Gareth Windsor I think I'll get it this time. Mould made with bluestuff and two halves of a kit in my stash. Using filler I made with glue and sprue that can get right into the mould. Fingers crossed.

Clifford Keesler Good luck. I am trying to figure out how to make a mould, to cast a belly pan/nose wheel well for a 1/72 Hobby Craft F-89 that is missing it. I have 2 other 1/72 F-89"s but can't figure out how to do it.

Gareth Windsor It worked! Vents need a little trim and they can go on.
Gareth Windsor So having grown up with Airfix I wasn't expecting too much from this build other than some fun on a "quick build", but it had some nice detail and the decals were great. I'm really happy with it and the blurred tree top base made for some nice pictures I think.
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.

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.

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.

Kerry COX What a pleasant surprise to find when logging back in after a few days away.
An awesome collection of aircraft Gareth.
Especially the Swordfish. !

Spanjaard great collection!, yes, the pilot is giving all his attention to the controller, no doubt
