I know the problem....... :cry:

Beautiful model, beautiful plane,

That Vimy is superb!
There is a certain elegance to the early 1900s designs and the triumph of man over the laws of physics!

I agree, things went more powerful, more brutish etc but the early designs are quite elegant. Very nice model.

That has turned out well Paul, a very impressive beastie. I've also recently suffered a similar fate of building a large-ish model (1/72 Lancaster) and then found I had nowhere to put it - the cabinet I had lined up and that I was sure it would fit into seemed to have shrunk one I tried to fit the completed model into it, or maybe the Lanc had grown. So much model, so little space :grin:

Still with us, Paul?

Went through all 20 pages of your work. Very inspiring.


Hope you're still out there and building.

Thanks for that. Yup, still here. Got a bit jaded with posting, I don't know why. I still visit now and then to keep up though. Building as usual, currently have 2 1/72nd LVG C.II (German WWI 2-seaters), a Copper State Caudron G.IV, and a 1/350 British K type sub from 1917 on the go, amongst other, less interesting things. Most recently finished a Polar Lights 1/1000 refit Ncc-1701, and an old AMT cutaway Enterprise, plus a bunch of Jet Provosts (new and old Airfix, and CMR). Here's a couple of shots from the last couple of months:

Cheers, Paul.

Glad to see your work again!

That's a lovely looking Aero engine. What did you paint it with?

I'm about to paint the engine on my Nieuport-17, and want to get it looking right.

It helps that it's 1/8th scale (Hasegawa). The cylinders are brush painted with Model Master Metalizer stainless steel, washed with an acryllic ink, Nuln Oil (Citadel). The rest is various bits and pieces I don't remember because I made it in fits and starts over a 10 year period, but they're probably Humbrol Metalcote colours. The black bits are from a Halfords spray can. The pushrods are bits of ancient magazine binders with the rust sanded off and sealed with a coat of Johnsons Klear. The plugs have some electical wire strands stuck to them, and the front of the crankcase is rub n buff pewter ( I wanted it to look a bit scuffed, which is just as well because I probably couldn't have got a smooth finish anyway).

Very pleased with it in the end, but it was a very good kit to start with.

Paul.

It a real treat to see you again Mr Flute!

I lurked here for a while before joining and your thread was my gateway to all things UAMF.

Hope to see more of your amazing work again soon!

I don't know you, sir (well, come to think of it, I only really know one other person here), but you have some really wonderful builds. The work on the engine and Vimy certainly caught my eye. Great work.
