Well, not on the bench anymore, but from the archives. Saw one for $199 the other day. Looks right nice I might say.

Your Kingfisher looks extremely good, love the painting and weathering. I wanted this kit so often, but failed to grab one, but one day...

I have only these little fellas in my stash, which are a part of Eduards recent USS Arizona boxing in 1/350. 3D printing is clearly the new wow.

If they turn out a tenth as good as yours, I will be satisfied ;).

Cheers Rob

Smitty, what an super awesome job!

What kit is that?  The only kit I know about is the Kitty Hawk kit, and I seem to remember a lot of Internet model experts telling the kit was absolutely unbuildable?

Seriously? I think your your model looks great! That Wessex is way beyond in comparison

That the average modeler, or Super skilled modeler can achieve! ...I mean, that build is

spooky in its excellence! How can you possibly be ashamed! Your work

Is great!. I'd love to build a big Huey by the way. I know Hobby Boss

has that big 1/18 Huey, but I'm still hoping for that big 1/18 Brewster Buffalo.

One can hope....I mean won't they release that soon?

 

 

Thanks for the compliment. Don't think it matters what hobby you have, there are always some who just seem to have other-worldly skills and Oliver it certainly one of those.

If it’s on internet, it must be true … 😂🤪🤣🤪

That goes to show the real value of the opinion of many of these « experts » …

PS: your Kingfisher is awesome, Smitty 👍 !

" The Expanse" it's a name of the Netflix sci-fi series. Very good acting, great CGI, not overboard effects, decent storyline with smooth overlap of the individual characters. Me likey

It was originally on Scy-Fy in the US and Space in Canada but was cancelled after the third season. The fans petitioned Bezos to have Amazon pick it up and he did. So season 4 onward were exclusively Amazon. 

The authors have had a say in the adaptation so it has stuck fairly close to the books.

Got some bench time amongst family issues so got the Bronco Comet stuck together. Using the Aber barrel which is a big improvement. The click together tracks went together nicely although the instructions say you need 108 links each side but I reckon you only need 103?! :huh:

Picture was taken this afternoon and everything is now primed with Mr Surfacer 1500 in grey. Still waiting for the Mantis Miniatures hessian netting and PanzerArt storage so I have something for the infantry to sit on!

How is the Comet? I keep looking at that kit ever since it came out.

Hi Carl, it's a nice kit and goes together well with options for all the main variants. A few injector pins but they are generally hidden once the parts are assembled. l quite like the plastic they use as well as it is hard but not brittle so cleans up nicely. l'd definitely recommend it. l got it off eBay for €30 so not a big hit to the wallet either.
