Airfix 1/24. It's a fun kit and going together quite nicely.

Monogram B-36 primed and rubbed down with some very fine steel wool and ready for painting (will be using Tamiya Lacquers)

Nice work. I have an irrational desire to build this kit.

Here's my first effort at airbrushing a german 3 tone camo on an old matchbox 1/76 jagdpanther, using bluetak for the masking. Vallejo model air, 24 hours drying between masking and next coat. I'm really pleased with the result. If any one has a tamiya 1/35 chi ha they'd like to sell, message me, it would be a good topic to practice on.

Thanks, Paul.

And done. Not bad for an ancient Airfix kit out of the box.

Nice work, Grant. Love the finish on that one. I see Airfix are just about to re-release their 1/24 aircraft kits - they may have already done it.

That Hurricane looks fantastic Grant, I've been tempted to get the trumpy one.

@Craig Would love to see some pictures of the 32nd A-10A!

Thanks guys. I'm also tempted by the Trumpeter Mk.II. That's the aircraft I always picture when I think Hurricane.

Here you go - prob need to start a new thread. Was aiming to finish in time for IPMS US Nats in Vegas, but looking like COVID has killed that plan. Not in any order, but these show progress over the last few years.

Black Box and Cutting Edge cockpit with Aires ESCAPAC and Tamiya pilot
3D printed pylons with option of BRUs for loaded or unloaded pylons (I have since added some magnets to the BRUs to allow the few stores to be removed for transport)
Cutting Edge exterior update set
Squadron canopy
Master Models turned brass GAU-8 gun barrel and pitot
Sierra Hotel corrected intakes and wheels
LOTS of scratchbuilding, correcting, detailing and backdating of the kit

Thanks for sharing those photos Craig. The A-10 is coming along very nicely.
Those aftermarket intakes really do make a difference, I've got the 1/48 intakes for my Hobby Boss kit.

Really looking forward to seeing more updates.
