Crumbs, it's intimidating to post in here with so much cool stuff on display! Is this the right place to post completed kits? I offered to build a kit for my mate and he requested a ’68 Charger in red with a white top, 426 hemi and a few war wounds. Well, I didn’t need telling twice (though as usual it took me ages to actually get round to building it). This is Revell’s 1/25 kit from 2008, a nice kit by Revell standards. I added a little wiring, a few fag packets and some dirt.

Certainly is, indeed early in the thread there were plenty of models people had built from kits but recently it has all been pre-built model cars. I love to see people's modelling skills smile

Nice work and it's in the right place, I've posted some of my completed kits in here somewhere. The engine detail on yours is spot on thumbup

Any plans for another build?

Thanks gents smile

Next build is another give-away, this time a Sea King for my brother, who wants to get models of the various helicopters he has ridden in. I do like people who want models for Xmas, nice 'n simple! Last year I did this Chinook for him, it's the Airfix kit which I understand is not quite up to the mark compared to the more recent Chinook kits from elsewhere. Looks like it could have done with another blow over with matt lacquer to be honest, but he was happy with it.

Looks good, incidentally I know a chap who flies or flew Chinooks and owned a TVR Tuscan, not him is it?

'Fraid not, he drives a ragged Mercedes A140! Though he did have an E36 M3 for a while.

few pictures from today's ipms show

http://www.flickr.com/photos/42427406@N05/sets/721...

this is my fav model from the show



Fav moment of the show was an guy came up to me telling me how much he liked my Catalina and that he said it was the most beautifulest plane he had ever seen.

I asked him why as if i was considering my beautifulest's planes i wouldn't even consider it. He then went on to tell me how he was a hurricane pilot that then went onto spitfire's and one time he was shot down and was in the sea for 4 hours almost losing all hope until coming over the horizon came a catalina and ever since then he's maintained it's the most beautifulest he had ever seen. It's one of those stories i doubt you would even read about.

Has been on the forums a few times. I built one, because of its size its quite an easy build, but I have been sucked into paper craft models over the last year or so, really must get some pics up of what I've done.

That's v nice indeed. Who's it made by and what scale? Had two of the Burago incarnation that I destroyed as a nipper and always fancied another, as the real thing is stil somewhat out of reach!

Great photos, thanks for posting. Is there a shot in there of something like a Gemini capsule being built, or are my eyes/brain not working too well? (It has been known!) Looks interesting and not something I'd seen before.

I completed another kit from the stash - I'm steadily working through them and providing excuses to buy more kits smile This is a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner, built box stock from the Revell (ex-Monogram) 1/24 kit.

Looks like an Apollo Service Module. Great little diorama.

A good place to start the S1 RS Turbo. Just need the black Princess Diana S1 RS Turbo to match.

I think that may go alongside it, although I quite like the RS1600i aswell.
