Well done so far 👍

Thanks Cuajete. Very kind of you 👍 🙂

Regarding the kit option and my chosen scheme (Robert & David - 🙂 haha!): apparently "The 2 tone grey colour scheme (Sabre Scheme) was insisted upon by the UK Government, concerned about the implications of "black" ops being carried out by American U-2s operating from a UK base. The TR1 was so designated for similar reasons... to dissociate the aircraft from its predecessors". If I have any of this wrong (which is highly likely!) Please feel free to correct me... 🙂 👍

@John, yeah I think you're right! It all seemed like a good idea at the time... Stop just collecting all these old kits and build them instead. In retrospect it may be sending me a bit 'insane in the membrane'! πŸ˜‚ I'll also never finish this in time either!

Tomcat isn't a plane that you can easily build and paint. Especially in 48th scale.
I have always been lazy to splice those pics together after a day's work, I should do it too…
Did I use the correct word "splice"?

I like your profile pic too, got some musical implications 😁
6 October, 02:19
Neil
Hi Chan Li, hope you're well thanks for commenting. Yes, hopefully I'll do a decent enough job! I'm using it as a build learning experience to be honest, first Cat I'll have made in 35+ years.

Yeah I just do it to cut down on the size of my albums, as aware my builds are all OOTB so don't wanna bore everyone too much! πŸ˜† Yes, splice will do mate πŸ‘

Yeap love the 80s tunes (before that was considered hip!)

"Crap"! I'm afraid I have to use this word again, I accidentally touched the reject button when I saw your request, it was probably my stupid thumb was too big to touch the cell phone screen.

Hi Chan Li, haha! Yes crap is indeed a useful word! No problem at all... I'm useless at doing things like that too. It's truly a wonder I ever build a model with these fingers! πŸ˜‚ No offence taken. I accept your request πŸ‘πŸ™‚

Hi Neil, Excellent!... Yes a modelling reminisce is (nearly) always pleasant! 😉 I agree, I loved my newsagent Matchbox builds. They were an easy to enjoy build for a child and looked more-or-less as they should to a non-expert modeller like me. Plus of course they were inexpensive - I just wanted my bedroom shelves and my ceiling to be covered in models... I never liked Airfix - I know sacrilege! I appreciate that likely makes me an unskilled hack.
3 May, 13:27
Neil Patrick
I just thought of another quality of vintage Matchbox vs. Airfix. On my last two builds I have used a mixture of 40+year old Airfix and Matchbox decals. The Airfix ones almost disintegrated. The Matchbox ones performed good as new. It's also a cruel irony that 'serious' modellers always complained about the 'trench like' panel lines on Matchbox aircraft, yet the newest Airfix kits I have feature panel lines only slightly narrower and even deeper. Not a good look IMHO...

Question: which colors did you used for the camo?
26 March, 16:35
Neil
Hi Fabio73 πŸ™‚ very kind of you to comment/like. πŸ‘ Yes, I too think there is life in these vintage kits; albeit they're not as slick as the new ones. I believe they have a charm of their own.

I'll keep a look out for your build too when it's on the bench, I'm sure you'll do a sterling job πŸ‘

I used a selection of paints, but the main basis used there was Vallejo Soviet/Russian colors tactical schemes 1978-1989 (part II) Art. 71.608. I tend to go my own way in paint a bit πŸ˜‰ so take my schemes completed as having a basis in reality with a dollop of 'what if' 😁
