Hi all.Im new to all this airfix mallarky but I have to say ITS SO ADDICTIVE! I decided to start with the 1:32 Aston Martin dbr9.To be fair it has took me ages but its very nearly finished but iv loved every minute.Ill be the first to admit it has it faults and plenty of them,but all in all I'm very happy with it.The only problems I found with it is that the 2 front inner arches had to be butchered to get the body to fit properly.Other then that I think it's a pretty good kit.The decals were awkward and for a first timer I think I picked a hard one.I managed to get them all on just using water but I will be buying some of the softener stuff.Other then that the only thing I would do different is maybe to airbrush the shell as there are a few brush marks that really stick out.Any way time for some pics. Firstly of he Aston,then the spitfire I'm going to attempt next,then a six pack I got at a steal on good old ebay.let me know your opinions good or bad,both welcomed as I'm eager to learn :D http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/24383336
