Murdo,
Very nice job on the York ! Welsh models are definitely some of the best vacform kits around. I guess he's doing more with the 1/72 scale now.

So...Has anyone seen the Revell 1/144 A-400M ? What's it look like ? I'm sure if it's Revell it will be first class. They are quickly becoming the leader as far as the best 1/144th kits in my opinion, anyway.

Take Care ................ Bruce.

looks great, welcome to the vacuform world!
complete with home made decals and scratch built details.

will the Welsh Twin Pioneer be your entry in next spring's Vac'n'Resin campaign ? or do you have a third project in the queue?



I'm afraid the Twin Pin is almost complete so I'll just have to buy something else for the campaign. My wife will understand I'm sure...

Thanks Jonathan
It's not easy to replicate something from photos/pictures and after that to recreate it with the right colors and measurments in right scale.
Thanks a lot again buddy

Cheers

Chavdar,
A very nice collection of 1/144 scale aircraft. I particularly like both airliners, as their decaling really stands out and grabs ones attention.

Oh Joel,
I'm so happy that you like them
As you know that is not all of my 1/144 collection - the little F-14, B-2 and F-16/will start tomorrow/ are on the way

Cheers mate

c'est exactement ça. I also design and print decals for my projects. but you are already far above my skill level.
here is my Air Marshall Islands fleet -





I have in my stash decal designs and kits to make the AMI DC-8 and their DHC dash 7. maybe next year.

Whooohooo! Great work on the Ed Force One Chevdar. Where did you get the decals neighbour? Did you print them yourself? I've been dreaming for a long time now to do one but couldn't find where to obtain the decals. I aim the original though, the Worsld Slavery Tour with the Powerslave Eddie on the tail. Could you light my way? Thanks.

Hi Yalym, first thank you I,m happy you like the Eddie All decals job is by myself - from project to printing.
I draw it at CorelDraw by my own.
Unfortunately I don't have the Worlds Slavery Tour decals, but if you want I can send you the coreldraw .cdr file of mine Final Frontier Tour 2011 decals by e-mail and you can print them with inkjet.

Cheers fella

Gents,

There are models so good here that I am tempted to go into 1/144!

I haven't read through all 24 pages of this thread; who here has built models by Miniwing or Anigrand? The Miniwings look great!

Frederick,
You'll find examples of Miniwings and Anagrand products spread throughout the thread. This thread is essentially just 1/144th scale modelers who love the scale. As you can see by going through the pages, there are some of the finest small scale models shown here that there are. Everyone here will be only too glad to help with tips or info on kits, etc. as needed. Just join in and enjoy !

Take care ............. Bruce

Jonathan,
Absolutely gorgeous examples of your work, thanks for sharing them. And since we're seeing what great 1/144th models can be completed, how about everyone else's ? I have no doubt there are quite a few examples out there we haven't seen. C'mon folks....don't be bashful...we're all modelers !

Take care and keep building ................Bruce

thanks! on hindsight, i should've limited weathering and buffed it a bit more. btw, i also used Eduard PE for that, though not much can be seen unless you use a penlight to peer into the canopy http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v665/rapmarbella/Eduard%20Spitifre/IMG_4367a_zps48bbe129.jpg

Raphael, looking very nice ! The Eduard Spit kit definitely is a jewel of a kit. And speaking of nice kits...has anyone built the Roden C-119 Boxcar yet ? I have one I'm looking at after I complete my present MC-130 build, and just wondering what we should watch for. Any tips out there, Folks ? Did you jump on a Canadian one yet, Jessica ?

Take Care............... Bruce
