Modellers United my first proper jet build , feels strange not having a prop lol , seat was a bit bare so added harnesses out of foil lids from pot noodles , some plastic card for rear of the seat padding , then added buckles and other wires from strech sprue
13. August 2018 at 19:49:55
Modellers United painted the inner fuselage parts , built the nose part had to fit 20g weight in then painted Alclad Olive Drab , for the main body of the nose polished the plastic with micomesh , 3 coats Alclad black gloss base polishing inbetween each coat then used hairy stick dry with Aluminium pigment dust and buffed with cotton wool then fitted the nose and cockpit
18. August 2018 at 19:36:15
Modellers United she`s all closed up and wings / rear jet engines now fitted , got a fingerprint on the nose but i like to still post things like that to show we all make daft mistakes sometimes and with 1 eye i make my fare share of them lol it will be fixed next time im at the bench more work to do around the cockpit / nose / rear jet engines ,but she`s looking like a plane now
24. August 2018 at 08:35:38
Modellers United added a bit kitchen roll into the cockpit then masked it all so just red areas left out , then pre shaded with Alclad matt black . Then done fine coats of Alclad Signal Red till you could only just see the pre shade . gave it a coat Alclad Aqua Gloss to protect it , once dry i will mask the red areas around the canopy area for the black bit
24. August 2018 at 15:22:57
Modellers United had too strip her and start again as i wasen`t happy in 2 places on her with the metal finish i did thats her striped and re done the metal finish , next is re do the red on the wing edges , center spine and tail fin

15. September 2018 at 15:45:29

Modellers United Had flu / cold this last week feel little better today so bench update on the @Airfix 1/48 English Electric
Lightning F.1/F.1A random panels painted with 3 different subtle shades of Alclad Aluminum on both sides , everything has been fitted wheels etc now ready for decals at last
10. October 2018 at 18:57:10
Modellers United Well thats the Airfix 1/48 English Electric Lightning F.1/F.1A finished at last , the kit it great but i fell out of love with this build a while ago when i was not happy with the metal finish and had to strip it since then just felt like a thorn in my side but happy with how it looks now , all done in Alclad metal and mil-spec paints with some pigment dust i cant remember where i got from
15. October 2018 at 14:17:43
Augie Looks good, but if I may, while having your logo on the pics is fine, can you loose the boarders from around them, they seem to bleed in and perhaps give an unfavourable look to the finished kit. Sometimes less is more.

Modellers United Made a start on Airfix 1/32 Montys Humber for the Alclad GB 30 parts fitted , coat of Alclad`s RAF Dark Green then dry brushed a little steel on the exhaust , a little rusting as well and also little rusting on the leaf springs then a all over brown wash , will add a little dirt later in the build
16. June 2018 at 20:41:42
Modellers United had a crazy idea to cut the door and fit it in open position and made 2 hinges , interior painted , 5 different shades of Alclad Browns dry brushed for the seats and side pouches and little brown wash on the car floor
17. June 2018 at 16:47:31
Modellers United fitted the dash and painted the body in Alclad RAF Dark Green , done the wheels with Alclads Black tyre rubber and fitted the body , then used a gel superglue and a cocktail stick the give the folded roof some texture then 3 shades of Alclad Browns and a black dry brushed on it then covered the car in Alclads Aqua Gloss to protect the work i done so far , will give it all a matt finish once complete
