Lovely work Chuck - I do like that 109 in particular. What did you use for the grass on the base?

A hanging basket liner from B&Q. It's not even painted.

I have to replace mine every year, as the local birds use them for building their nests.

Fantastic work, Chuck, a fine pair of dios. The headlight tip is excellent and I'll store that one away for the next time I have a military vehicle kit on my bench that has poorly moulded lenses.

Marvelous output and tips here, Ian!
Love the dioramas, and of course, the old kits getting a look in.

Cheers,

David

I love to keep going back to the old kits. I still have quite a few to do. This will be part of my display for a show that I'm doing next year.

One of the members of our old model club died recently and his son passed on all his many boxes of models to us. I have managed to find storage for a number of the completed kits of subjects already in my collection. Many were from old releases as far back as 50 years. At least they didn't end up in a skip, as so many have done in the past. We have a few unmade kits to build, too. It all gets back to what will happen to our stuff when we head to the big model shop in the sky. We are looking at local air museums at the moment.
