The rusted roof and the posters are an awesome touch! Looks perfect.  :-*

The Airfix 1/72 Britten-Norman Islander. The RhAF had, I believe, about half a dozen of these in No:3 Squadron


A pretty quick build, added a load of antenas, but could not get enough tension in the long bit of wire to pull it totally straight.

Looking good regardless, and good to see you around again.

I've used the melted/stretched plastic sprue over a candle before, but never such a long piece. Maybe thin guitar or florists wire (uncovered) would work next time?

Nice job.

I would suggest brass wire from cockpit to tailfin with a descending wire to the tail.

Thanks for the feedback chaps.
I think the problem with the wire was due to it coming on a spool, just couldn't get the curve out. It's also a tad too thick at 0.5mm, if i can find some 0.3 or 0.2 I'll redo it.

Ah, yes. I have a stock of 0.4mm (4mm scale handrail) and 0.7mm (7mm scale handrail) rod. Much better than trying to straighten wire from reels.

Had this idea floating around for a while,(to go with the gaming boards that currently exist only in my imagination); a deployment board for holding models not yet in game.



It's supposed to look like a section of a FireForce forward air field, such as Grand Reef or Mt Darwin. That was the idea, a lot of barrels later I made a little (2' x 2') board from 12mm MDF with 15mm baton underneath. A rough pencil sketch of where bits will go, some filler, some dodgy looking revetments and a bit of sand... and that's as far as I've got so far
