Lovely! What a big kit! Ditto on the NMF.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
I really do like how she's come out and I will feel happy displaying her at Telford!

I decided to try a spot of weathering on the Badger.
It's my first time at weathering a full aircraft with Hunbrol Weathering Powders so please go easy on me.

I'm cracking on with things tonight!
Aswell as finishing the Badger I managed to paint the Horton:

And I filled in the gap between the cockpit and fuselage aswell as giving the rota blades a drooping look:

Nice goings on with this bench. Really like the droop of the blades on the Frog.

Nice work going on in this bench, the Badger especially looks superb.

I think the Badger looks great Mav. As indeed does that chopper, what is it? a Boeing Vertol? how did you curve the rotors?

Thanks folks!
It sure is Shaun, I used a candle at a distance and slowly manipulated the rotas so that I didn't cause any damage.

Last night I worked a little more on the Horton.
The decals in the Pioneer 2 kit broke up on contact with the water!
Never mind, the Matchbox FW190 I'm doing for the GB is going J to RAF colours so I used that decal sheet as a backup and I have to say they worked beautifully!

And whilst were at it I've put a new cover on my little work bench:

We picked up a 1 meter stretch of material from Dunelm for £3.25 and Il get 6 lots out of it which isn't bad in my book!

I fear I'd probably melt a set of rotors if I tried that one Mav! Great looking Horton.

Thanks fella's!

Well if you believe it or not I've recently started the first project since my daughter was born at the end of Feb!
I'm doing a double twin seat Harrier build.
both of these were bought from Telford SMW.
Heller Bobcat Harrier T.4 & Italeri Harrier T.10(using the nose cone an decals from the Airfix kit kindly provided by Marky)
