    Hi folks, it's been a while since I posted any builds here. It's been quiet on the building front, I've only managed about half a dozen builds in the last 18 months......

    Great stuff.

    Your Huey is really nice. I want to do a couple of choppers. I was an air crew with HS-4 when they had SH-3A's and want to do this for the carrier GB. For modern I want to do an SH-60B which is what HS-4 is currently operating. I would think these things are a real challenge.

    Wow they are great. Can you post some pictures of the builds in progress.
    I love the shading you have done on the F-15 the Huey, very subtle but it stands out well.

    Those are some beautiful builds! I really love the RAF Hawk. With such quality work, you should not stay away so long.

    Cheers lads! :)

    As requested, a close up of the Emil...

    [​IMG]

    Some in progress pics of the F-15 UH-1C.

    The F-15 is a 1/48 Academy kit painted with a kind of ghost gray scheme using Tamiya Olive Drad and Olive Green. Undersides Tamiya Light Grey. Decals were from the Max decals sheet for an Irish Air Corps De Havilland Vampire (I think...)

    The Huey is the 1/35 Academy kit, built OOB with foil seat belts added. Painted with Tamiya OD.

    (It's a big bugger! Awkward to photograph!)

    The one i'm most proud of is the RAF hawk though. It's the 1/48 Italeri kit, it's really nice, goes together like a dream.
    It's completly OOB except for the RBF tags and intake/exhasut covers, they're made from alu foil.

    I found some pics a couple of more that I built early last year.

    Another Emil, this one is a 1/48 Tamiya kit.

    And another What-if, an Irish Air Corps P-40.
