This resin is really good quality, so i ordered 2 kg and that should be enough for some time.:thumbsup: 

 

Also i bought this sanding device, which i wanted for some time but couldn't find it anywhere local.

And my Humbrol masking fluid is getting really old now, so i bought the Micro masking fluid.

I'm afraid not Rob:lol:

 

Well i'm planning to cast some more detailed wheels for my MIG 23 build. Also i want to experiment a little with the stuff.  One of my wanna have projects, which is laying for a few years now in my stash, is the Revell/ Matchbox Sea Venom. As there is no aftermarket for this kit i wanna make my own resin pieces for it. It's a brainstorming project which will keep me busy until i have the courage to start on it.

I bought in Lingen (Germany) a few weeks back a 1/32 Hobby Boss F-84E for 25 euro.

Last weekend I was at the Shropshire modelshow at the Cosford RAF museum in Engeland and bought myself a 1/24 Airfix Hawker Typhoon Ib for just 40 pounds!!!! :D

Also bought some more cheap kits, but they were all in smaller scale. including in 1/48 a F-86K, E-2C Hawkeye, Mig 27D, B25G, etc.

 

Cheers,

Hi Danny, just saw ,that you got Micro Mask. If you don't know the stuff, try it before applying on the real thing. I used Micro Mask for my Corsair cylinder heads and it was nearly impossible to remove the stuff after painting. I used it because the Humbrol masking stuff is so thick and Micro Mask promised to be easier to apply, because it is more liquid.

Cheers Rob

Hi Danny.

 

If you try those MRP please tell me your opinion. Curious to see that MRP have two variants of Clear Doped Linen...

I surely will Francisco. I didn't know what kind of doped linnen color to chose, so i bought both of them. I'm also curious about these colors.

 

Still some work on my P-47, but i will soon start my WNW Fe.2b.

Hi Danny

Just wondered how you found the Ammo bases? They look nice and anything else I've used from them has been excellent, so just wondered if these are the same. Also intrigued as to what you're going to use them for?

I bought them on a Belgian online store called "The Modelspecialist", here's the link :

The owner is a great guy, and gives a really nice service to his customers.

 

I will use this base for my up-coming WNW Fe.2b "early" build.

Generally, when we westerners think about science fiction in video media ... most will tend to relate to the 'Big 3' - Star Trek ... Star Wars ... and Battlestar Galactica.

Of course there are the various peripheral TV series ... Babylon 5 was a hit ... Farscape ... and a favourite of mine - the cancelled TV show - Firefly.

 

Star Trek's original series started up in 1966 and ran for 3 seasons ... the animated series ran in 1973-1974 ...

I mention this only because my favourite SF series first came on air in 1974 ... and Star Trek is the only major SF series that precedes it.

Of course there are others, such as Doctor Who ... but I'm referring to series that are almost solely futuristic / space orientated ... 

 

The favourite that I speak of Space Battleship Yamato ... a multilayered 'space opera' produced in anime ... 26 episodes long at about 30mins per episode.

The plot (set in 2199) is awesome ... the characters are multidimensional ... and although some of the sequences stretch belief and defy the laws of physics - in reality, no more so than many other western based SF or fantasy genre movies or series.

The music score is also terrific. Sequels came and went ... and movies ... all before Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica.

 

The Americans got hold of the series under licence ... and because of the politically correctness of the period, changed the 'war sensitive' names of characters and vessels - and removed a couple of episodes.

It came out as 'Star Blazers' ... and that, as a kid, is how I first came across it. I didn't realise how badly the Americans had stuffed it all up until I got to see the original, in Japanese audio, with English subtitles.

 

After a live action flick made in 2010 (in Japan) ... which was largely unsuccessful due to the overly cramped and convoluted nature of ramming a 13 hour 'epic' story into 2 hours, they decided to re-make the original series.

Released in 2012, Space Battleship Yamato 2199 uses updated animation techniques ... A few small things have been changed along the way ... some characters have been gender swapped very cleverly (e.g. Akira Yamamoto), omitted or expanded to create a richer feel to the storyline ...

 

After seeing Vaughns build of the Bandai kit based on the Yamato from the 2012 remake ... I was inspired to grab it at some point ...

The delay in release of the HK Models Lancaster has given me the perfect excuse opportunity ... 

 

At 1/500 scale it's over 660mm long and will make an impressive display!

 

IMG_1053_zpsfojbhsdq.jpg

 

One of my favourite sequences in the series is the launch scene for the attack on the Gamilas advance base on Pluto ... where the ship based fighters are launched from the hangar deck.

The kit has a few extras but you need to get the expansion pack in order to fit the hanger deck ... or keep it as a separate display ...

 

IMG_1048_zpsrcndbjcl.jpg

 

Im unsure whether there are other 1/72 scale shipborne craft besides the below offerings ... but if I can find them, I'd love to get a larger scale 'Seagull' and Type 100 2 seater reconnaissance craft to go with them.

Melda Deitz's distictive ruby red Gamilian Czvarke ... is also a desired kit!

 

Tactical officer Susumo Kodai's Cosmo Zero (alpha 1)

Ensign fighter pilot Akira 'Rei' Yamamoto's Cosmo Zero (alpha 2)

 

IMG_1050_zpsugtuorle.jpg

 

Lieutenant Saburo Kato's Cosmo Falcon (Flight Leader)

 

IMG_1051_zpsovgfriwj.jpg

 

Ensign Hiroki Shinohara's Cosmo Falcon (Flight 2IC)

Looking forward to seeing the next series - Yamato 2202
