The decal works really well, I thought you had used individual dial faces I might do the same with mine after seeing that

Some of the kits that are being manufactured now have some fantastic detail. As an example they seem to have improved the cockpit detail, and they are just as good as the resin, particularly if you plan on having the canopy down.

which is all good for the likes of us modellers.

Agreed. Detail is getting great, even on these newer mold revell kits. Believe they released a tornado earlier this year that has amazing detail too. Think they still don't all have the as great of a fit as some would like, but the detail you get for the money is great. That cockpit looks amazing. If I didn't know any better I wouldn't believe that that came from a revell kit.

The detail on the new kits is really good, the Ju-88 cockpit is one of the best detailed I have seen on any kit out of the box
I have the "tigermeet" boxing of the ecr tornado, and believe it or not the original tooling on this kit is from 1996
But it is a lovely kit, although a few of the panel lines are a bit light, but nothing a scriber can't fix, the decal sheet for this kit is mind blowing it's massive and takes up pretty much the whole bottom of the box

I assembled the pilots apart from the heads, I prefer to paint these separately. I will paint all the heads even though I only need 2, it will be good practice

Limited bench time for me for a while as I'm starting the cellar to mancave conversion, but I did get a bit more done on the pilot in the chair

The postman delivered a package today

I used the vouchers I won at the Avon model show (I have a couple more kits on back order too)
It's only one sprue, but you get three pilots and a dog !

I have glued them together ready for priming, I kept the heads off of two of them for painting, one had to have his glued on so I could get the position of his helmet and oxygen hose in the right place (that's the part on the bottom right) the white strap on the left hand figure is a bit of thin plastic card, as the kit part flew into space when I clipped it off and the carpet monster swallowed it up lol !
For plastic figures they are really well detailed and should help me make a nice diorama for the spitfire, I'm thinking of doing a waiting for a scramble diorama but I don't want to go down the route I did with the carrier deck and make anything too big, so I will probably just build the front of the flight operations hut or the front of a nissan hut and it should all fit on a reasonably sized base as the spitfire isn't too large


Cheers

Looking good. Nice figures you got there in there too. After your f-4 I wonder if you really will listen to yourself when you try to tell yourself "keep it small" LOL. Next we'll see that you bought a second spitfire, and are going to have them parked side by side, with a tent full of pilots waiting to scramble. [rofl][rofl][rofl] Also good luck on the mancave construction. It will be worth having limited modeling time for a while once that's finished. Mine wasn't near the construction project that it sounds like you are making yours, but just getting the desk in a room made a huge difference to me. I'm sure many of us will be jealous of your new setup once it's finished.

Cheers Kenny ! I had £40.00 in vouchers and I very nearly did buy another spitfire lol, but I didn't want to build 2 at the same time. I got these pilots and an academy 1/35 UAV with a couple of marine figures, and a Revell 1/32 do 27 in zebra stripes (I'm not kidding) it looked so different to any plane I had built before and it was cheap lol so I had to have it, those 3 kits a roll of 6mm Tamiya tape and shipping and the vouchers were gone, but it was really nice to be able to spend without conscience lol.
The other kits should be here soon I will take some pics when they arrive
And I'm really trying to plan this diorama so that it will fit on a shelf and not take up a whole room lol, I don't know what I had been sniffing when I came up with the carrier deck

That was my thought. Glue or maybe even paint fumes...... Or both. LOL

Those figures look really good. Paint work on the pilot in the chair is lovely, you got the colours spot on.
Nice work.
Sounds like you have some good bargins in the post, well done you.
