NIce work on that MG, Iggie. :grin: I also like the progress on the Walrus. What do you use for rigging?


The rigging on the Walrus is 'knitting-in' (or Shirring) elastic; it comes in 200m reels (so good for at least a couple of squadrons :shock: ) for £2.50
Available from the online auction site (UK): http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clear-Shirring-Elastic-Clear-Knitting-in-Elastic-200m-x-0-5mm-Spool/222080031464?hash=item33b5005ae8:g:fkwAAOSwLVZVs4NG

Anyway, hope that helps!


Thanks for the info and link, Iggie. I appreciate it. :) I've been using something called EZ-line from a US Ebay seller. It works a trick for antenna and some boat rigging (I have the line more appropriate for 1/72 and 1/144 scale). I wonder if it has similar properties to the Shirring? Thanks again.

Just caught up with the Iwo - sorry but I have been distracted and as your strapline says - "time is an illusion"!

That ship is truly impressive - what a whopper! I thought that what I was building was big....but I will not have to build a shelf to put it on! Your patience with all of those tiny parts must have been strained at times. The heli lifting the cargo box was a smart move - very realistic. And all of those life rafts.......

The Wulrus was quick but very effective and I must say very well rigged. I used a similar method for rigging my Airfix 0/400 - I used invisible thread for mine and it nearly drove me bonkers. (Well I know that I am that already, but it made me worse).

I recall a while ago that you mentioned that you were a skin beater, I saw this and thought it might be of interest to you :-D

Ha Ha! Those would be about right for me nowadays! Probably wouldn't sound as bad either! :shock:

Next up on the bench is the lovely Airfix BAE Hawk, this time in the RAF Benevolent Fund colours from a little while back (I know I have seen this scheme in the flesh as it where, and have photographs too....but can I find them? :evil: )

Image

I forgot to really take any progress shots but this was as of last night after a couple of evenings work; a little filler needed at the wing roots and behind the intakes, but other than that I love this kit! I built this once before and made the mistake of using Humbrol spray varnish....which fogged the canopy and wrinkled all the decals :evil:

Cheers Paddy! Yep, highly recommend this kit, totally blitz-able and I would say a good starter kit for a youngster as there are no too many small parts

I masked up the canopy and nose-wheel assembly (this is added when you close up the fuselage so unavoidable) and gave it a blast with some cheapo car black gloss spray paint that we found in the in-laws car when we sold it recently :-D

Interestingly, rather like my B17 earlier in the year, the flow patterns in the plastic (previously invisible) then appeared! :???: No detectable difference in the surface texture, either before or after painting, and no, they are not thumb-prints :grin: ..... That'll teach me to not prime I suppose!
So this is it painted:

And the real thing at Kemble June 2009; what happened to this airshow? It used to be fantastic, well organised and always a delight :sad:

Love this one Iggie. I have made a few of these excellent little kits. The 1/48 is a good kit as well. Cracking job mate.

That is a great looking Hawk, Iggie. The new tool Hawk was released with little fanfare by Airfix and certainly it looks better when built up than the old stager that I did earlier in the year!

Cheers Shaun & Ian :grin: It certainly helps that the Hawk is a lovely looking aircraft!

I'm back to earth with a bump with the next project:
Another last minute buy from Modelzone when they were closing down...

It's older than me, but not by much! :roll:

And progress thus far:

IMHO the Harry Tate is not one of Airfix's finest but you have made a great start to it, Iggie.
