A much overdue update. I've not had much time lately but I'm settling into my new job and getting into a routine with my modelling. My mojo has definitely returned.

So, what's going on in the Den?

Not much in the way of progress shots with the Forrestal project but this will give you a taster of what is about to appear in the Aviation Modelling section.


Image

With a little space and a few weeks to wait before the RAF GB kicks off I thought I'd do something non-aircraft to fill the gap. I've had this in the stash for a couple of years so it's definitely about time. Can't let Kitaholic build all the 1/72nd military stuff on the SIG display.

Image


It's a pretty nice kit although with 309 parts it isn't a shake the box job and it's typically eastern Europe/Russian inspired kit manufacturing i.e. too many parts, over engineered and complicated instructions but they do make really nice models if you put the effort in so it's best to get stuck in. I figure this much has around 100 parts in it. It took a big chunk of the weekend to get it to this stage.

Now the complex chassis is pretty much out of the way it does look like it's going to start rolling along rapidly; fingers firmly crossed ;-)

The only issue so far has been these sinkmarks in the missile cradle.

Image

They're quite deep and run along both sides so the trusty Squadron Green was deployed and is now having overnight to set.

More updates soon 8-)

I have this in the stash so will be very interested to see how it comes out. Your work so far looks impressive!

That Crusader looks great, Daz and the Topol is a very interesting project. I bet even in braille scale that builds up into quite a large model but the kit has a serious number of parts though!

309 parts! Wow! Look forward to seeing it progress.
