Hi All, Been modelling for 45 years on and off, mainly off recently, returning to the hobby and looking to improve skills and technique. Have a sizable stash of models but nowhere near the virtual model shop quantities of some of you lucky people. Time constraints result in me primarily building straight out of box (full time job, 12 kids etc) and as some of the children are toddlers it means I have to pack everything away nightly. Very impressed with the information gleaned so far and impressed with the friendliness; encouragement and assistance I have come accross in the posts I have read over recent months

Most of my models have not been started, but I do have a number work in progress on the "workbench".  However have managed to finish a F4U-1A Corsair 1/48 (05106) which is shown here, found the build fairly straightforward. Brush painted and a nice re-introduction to the hobby.

Very nice.  :thumb:

That's a lovely finish for a hairy stick! I wish I could get similar results...

Uploaded Irfam and now to see if  can get this right, below is my attempt at the club Spitfire MKXVIa, not the best model I've made, particular problems with wingtips and canopy not fitting properly.
Again brush finished, on the strength of my initial impressions of the kit I used my Flying hours to buy 3 more versions of Mr Mitchells masterpiece.

Latest addition, DH Mosquito J.30 No. 2 Division (Squadron) F-1 Wing, Vasteras, Swedish Air Force, 1949. (3062) part of the D Day 60th anniversary set with the Beaufighter, Mustang and typhoon Built for the Twin engined fighters Group Build, the build thread is in the group build 2010 section. First 1:72 build for some considerable time and the first time figures in the cockpit for even longer. Had problems with my masking tape & seepage so greenhouse hand painted and straight lines not that straight I'm afraid. Going to order some better quality asap.
