Welcome to the start of my new workbench page here is the link to my old page http://gregers.7.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=14739 .

After a long break from kit building I decided to take up a challenge and build 12 kits in 12 months starting from the 1st January 2011, after completing my first few kits of the year, I discovered what I had been missing and have thrown myself back into the hobby.

Since January 2011 I have completed the following:

Airfix Hurricane 1/72
Airfix Seakhawk 1/72
Airfix Albatros DVa 1/72
HobbyBoss Wildcat as a RN Martlet 1/72
F20 Tigershark 1/144
Nova Gloster Whittle (just need decals to complete as the originals all broke up) 1/72
Academy Kubelwagen (comes free with the Storch) 1/72
HobbyBoss Sabre 1/72
MP Sabre 1/72
Airfix Sabre 1/72

Kits currently on the go :

Airfix Sea Vixen 1/48
HobbyBoss Mustang 1/72
Academy Storch 1/72
Italeri Hawk 100 1/72
Tamiya Mini Cooper 1/24


At this rate of build I will easily reach my 12:12 target.

Regards

I agree the Seahawk looks great. I didn't realize you did three Sabres for the GB. Stunning work, 8-)

12 in 12? No probs!! Nice one, I really like the diorama setup, it's very effective, how did you get the back ground? a large print out kinda thing?


. . . dcg (who WILL steal splashes dio tecnique!!)


The set up to shot the photos is simple. I have a large card with the concrete printed on four sheets of A4 that were stuck down with glue and the back drop is an A4 print I took at an airfield.

The lighting I either use bounce flash off the ceiling, or two small halogen lights one either side. If you set the thing up at the top of the stairs you can then get a low level shot or set it up on a table, what ever is the easier.

I hope that helps?

The mini is now one stage closer to being finished.

I think the spark plug leads are to big what do you think?

Spark plug leads? I thought they were radiator hoses? Being an American I know nothing of your wrong side of the road driving thingies. :ha:

Dirk you have bigger starter motors than the whole of this engine on your cars. :grin:

The Mini’s engines varied between 850cc and 1300cc and only had four cylinders with eight valves. The engine was on top of the gearbox and shared the same oil.

We used to have a saying, if you owned a mini and it didn’t leak oil, that only meant one thing, you were out of oil.

But you are right they do look like radiator hoses and must be changed.

Italeri Hawk 100 1/72 update.

The Hawk is a simple kit that goes together with ease, I have now sprayed it and given it a coat of clear gloss and will add the decals when it’s dry.

I’m now tied up with the Bird Dog and Captured Equipment GB’s, for the Bird Dog I’m doing a float plane version using the spare floats of the Airfix Auster and for the Captured Equipment I finishing a kit I started back in the 90’s which is a spitfire with a Daimler-Benz engine.

wow, a Daimler-Benz Spitfire... very cool idea :roll: :ha:

What kit are you using for the Spitfire? Where did you get your Bf110 nose from? What are you going to use for decals?
