  1. Hi Danny, Found my list so a couple I tried were de Ryck Arend Blond, Westmalle Dubbel and Slaapmutske Blonde. Very nice they were too! Cheers, Gus
  2. Lovely Danny, they are a great looking pair. Been at a local beer festival the last couple of evenings and tried some lovely Belgian beers, just can't remember the names!
  3. Hadn't noticed that Rich but now you point it out.....
  4. Lovely Micha. You are busy at the moment with all the construction vehicle kits as well.
  5. Just amazing again Rich. Some of that pipework looks so fragile I'd be terrified of breaking it at a later stage.
  6. Nice Rog. A great bit of history. I'm only surprised looking at the list of sorties that the 'average' mission works out at roughly 6 hours. Looking at the list of destinations I would have thought it would be higher. Whatever, brave men and ever fewer left.
  7. Nicely done Danny, that will look very cool on display.
  8. Looks good and those jacks look lovely.
  9. Very effective. Just love those Uschi powders!
  10. Nice to see your progress Tom. The nacelle looks very convincing. Now you can compare notes with Cees as to how to finish the front end of the engines!
  11. Will be very interesting to see how they turn out.
  12. Very smooth Cees, looking forward to seeing how the front sections turn out.
  13. Got these from my wife and kids for the big 'five-oh' a few weeks back but it's taken a bit of time to get things organised. In the middle of house renovations so time to do anything non-essential is at a premium, so work has basically ceased on the F-16. Cabinet is the Malsjo from Ikea which went together very nicely and sits well with the other furniture in the spare bedroom. One problem with building 1/32 modern jets is that they're generally huuuge, so the Detolf is just no use and we had to go for this one. The F-15 and Mig-23 are in there but there's plenty of spare space - at my current rate of building I might fill it before I'm 60! The kit was from the kids (although I told them to get it at Jadlam as the price was so good) and the AM I picked up with some of the money I was given. Think I've got all I'll need and on a quick look through it looks like it'll be a fun build
  14. That's some lovely work given the conditions you're working in.
  15. Nice result again Rich. When you shape the initial square build to get the final curves do you just sand it to shape?
  16. As Rob says, excellent work with the PE. Just out of interest, do you solder yours or use CA?
  17. Stunning stuff Rich. Your paint effects are very convincing.
  18. Don't drop anything coz that grass on the floor looks pretty thick!
  19. Looking good. I assume these will be 3D printed? Nice to see the enthusiasm back for this!
  20. On a superficial glance there's very little easily discernable difference there. Certainly not a three-fold difference in price worth of difference. Lovely result.
  21. Hi Cees, any reason why you haven't fully assembled the tail at this stage?
  22. Very nice result from the 3D printing.
  23. Good luck. I guess whatever you decide will be hard for anyone to contradict given how deeply this is buried in the vehicle.
  24. Just to show I haven't just been lurking on here since I finished the Eagle a few weeks ago. This is the Tamiya F-16CJ kit which I'm going to build as an Israeli F-16C Barak as I want to try some scratch building and the Isracast conversion now seems to be extinct. I have a copy of the instructions from the set and I'm going to try and replicate it as best I can using Evergreen stock. This is the airframe I'm hoping to build. A First Jet squadron aircraft from the late 1990s with a loadout of JDAMs, Python 4 and AIM-9L. I've started as the instructions indicate with the engine. I don't intend to have it on display but I'm giving it full attention just to practice more with the various metallics. Just needs weathered now which hopefully will get done at the weekend. Down the interior was done with various Gunze and Tamiya acrylics then weathered with Tamiya pastels and Ammo panel line washes which darken things up without being too stark. The exterior is mainly Vallejo Metal Color pale burnt metal and jet exhaust with the steel sections done using the Uschi powders. Detail then picked out in Tamiya acrylics. I'm fairly happy with how it looks so far but don't want to go too heavy on the weathering which might be a challenge. As ever, all suggestions, etc welcome.
