Sneak Peek for the April Swap meeting

For those who do read the forum, here is a sneak peek of what I've pulled out of the stash for the swap meet. I realize I'm never going to build these so all offers will be open. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/875/40546866225_60f6aa8a29_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr https://farm1.static...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

A bit more work on the wings. in this case, I decided to put the main wing assembly on before the front section. The fit seemed to be better this way. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/808/27507638258_44cbc469d2_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr Then once that set, put on the front section. St...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Exhausts complete. I was very impressed on how way the Vallejo Metal color airbrushed on. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/804/40246401375_8f9c9a2a23_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr Now onto the wing assembly.

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

A bit more work done today. The fuselage has been glued together, to say there were some minor fit issues would be an understatement. Some filler and sanding will solve it in short order. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4776/40954765172_608a81104b_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart Clark , on Flickr While that...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Updates may be not as frequent as I'm back on the job search, I was hoping my contract would be extended, but we have caught up on the backlog and I think they want to try without one person Took a break from the photo etch and started working on the engine intakes. I have to say I'm not sure what t...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Starting on the photoetch for the cockpit. The older I get the smaller it seems to get. I was using 3x magnifiers and I think next time I'll move up to 4x. Showing all the bits and pieces I use to work on photoetch. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4659/40508897461_eef6bcb5bc_b.jpg Untitled by Stuart ...

Re: Airfix 1/72 TSR 2

Getting things started. First up is the cockpit area. I separate and clean up the cockpit tub, seats and instrument panels. There is some unpainted photoetch to be attached in cockpit tub and on the interior walls. Once this is done these parts are primed in preparation for a coat of Tamiya XF-82 Oc...
