Hi Guys,

 

Just came back from four days of fun and plastic bliss with fellow members Cees Broere, Erik Bosch and Huub.

First stop: Midlands Air Museum:

Hi Jamme,

 

I was still busy uploading :)

Here are some pics from the show grounds:

 

Pheon Models and Aviattic with some really cool schemes, models and... original pieces of Lozenge. Wow...

Have a look at Peter Castle's (Airscale) Sea Fury. Was nice talking to him at the show and seeing his creation 'grow' over the years :)

It stood on Iain Ogilvie's 32SIG stand:

Which also featured Cees Broere's HP 0/400 scratch build project and 1/32 Whitley...

And here are some shots of Iconicair's (www.iconicair.com) coming 1/32 resin Spiteful.

We had a great chat with new LSM member Graham French who gave us some great insight in the 3D modeling, tooling and research he has done on the subject.

I think we can expect great things from this 'new' brand.

The Spiteful was on a turning base, so it was hard to take good pics. Erik Bosch took some as well (with a proper camera) and will post them soon:

PS. If you look at Peter Castle's Sea Fury, you'll see a resin RAF Trolley Accumulator. 

This is actually Iconicair's first release. Available now at: http://www.iconicair.com/kits/

And here's another highlight! The 1/32 Meteor F.4 by HK Models. Really nice surface texture. Rivet detail. 

James Hatch is reviewing and building this kit right now:

But lets not forget their giant B-17:

LSM had a great meeting with HK Models at the show where James Hatch received the first production run Meteor:

Now I know why the Typhoon wasn't seen at Hendon, it's now at Cosford. Rumor has it that it will be loaned to another

Museum in...Canada?

Any confirmaton in this?

The Whitley tailsection was very interesting to inspect, the unused fuselage frame on the wall next to it even more. The

Ian Huntley drawing I have been using is totally wrong regarding the cross section. Need to look at more photographs.

This past weekend was a blast, and the company too.

Typhoon being my favorite British aircraft, really enjoyed seeing the Airfix offering. I am just in the final stages of completing mine. Never to be seen here as it is in the 'one-quarter" scale variety. My question though, did the camera make the rivet detail appear early "Trumpeter'ish"? When I saw it I had a flashback to when I first opened the box to my 1/32 F-100.
