  1. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Thanks peteski
  2. Italari American wrecker truck

    Well the truck is nearly done, just a few odds and ends to add and the alien and trucker and his wife to do.
  3. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Well I'm definitely not going to be any good at planes (will stick to genres I'm more in tune with) (what I don't understand is why planes are so difficult)give me an engine on a bike or car an I can do a half decent job of it, I've worked with them most of my life so know how they should look(maybe that's why the plane engines looks so bad, never even seen one let alone worked on one.
  4. Italari American wrecker truck

    Came with the kit (i tried making my own but they were see through)
  5. Italari American wrecker truck

    More done to the truck.
  6. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Hi thanks mate scale is 1/72 (I started building the Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster, now that is BIG, its in a cupboard somewhere now ) (I really should get that out and finish it, I'd forgotten all about it)
  7. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Let me tell you foiling something like this is no easy task, it's only that I think it looks ok that I'm continuing (put me off planes again) the bit where the wings connect was a real pita (Still not that happy with it) can't see how to make it better, I'm hoping the wings will be easier. There's a lot of detail on the inside of the clear parts which I can't see the point of since when painted you can't see it (I suppose it's another part of building planes) I was really looking forward to the 1/24 Airfix mosquito (was going to ask for it as a birthday prezzie)
  8. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Hi all well I've finished the interior and closed it up, trying foil on the silver part of it I figure doing the panels individually may look more realistic (that remains to be seen)
  9. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Thanks mate.
  10. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Is there any way of getting rid of the white stuff you get with superglue, I ask because I'm trying to do the belly turret on the plane which is moulded in clear I'm using Revell clear glue and it just keeps coming apart when I'm handling it whilst trying to paint it (incidentally how do you manage that it's almost impossible I've had to take it off a load of times as the paint seeps under the masking tape and my hands arnt steady enough to do it free hand) anyway i was thinking of gluing it with superglue if I could get rid of the white vapour stuff you get with it.
  11. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Hi all well made more progress on the interior, loads more to do (there's a lot of detail in this kit) I'm wondering wether to add some lighting to the internals, its quite dark even without adding the side with the cut outs in. Done some of the exterior paint ( not my best work as I'm using a brush since my compressor is dead)
  12. Italari American wrecker truck

    Hi all more work on the hoist.
  13. Italari American wrecker truck

    Done some work on the hydrolic lift, not done any weathering of it yet. Added a bit of paint.
  14. Revell Boeing B17G Flying Fortress

    Thanks guys. Hi all bit more done to this, trying out some aluminium foil on the inside to see the effect before I try it on the outside, i must say I think it looks quite good.

    Hi Patrick I agree most companies would keep rigs showroom as to keep a good image but I'm going for an independent (let's face it a company is not likely to come out to an alien crash, I mean the cost of chasing up payment if they did a runner) no I'm going for a poor independent who can just about keep his truck running so will take any job.
