This week's builds
« on: August 08, 2017, 09:42:53 PM »
After a couple of weeks with no plastic to feed my addiction I decided I needed to build something, so I dug out the academy q/48 F117a final flight kit from the cupboard, then I had a search of eBay and found a nice 1/35 brachiosaurus kit and then joy of kits a 15% discount voucher for hobby craft landed on my inbox. I couldn't contain myself it had to be done an early morning trip into the town centre I came away with a 1/144 B2 and the dreaded airfix 1/72 Vulcan. Arriving home I indulged my addiction by binge building. Oh the joy as my cutters snipped, flash was removed, burs where sanded, gaps filled and the gentle hum of the compressor soothed me as I airbrushed my way into a state of modellers euphoria. So here they are for you all to have a look at. The camo on the Vulcan does not match that of XH558 but that doesn't matter to me it's a Vulcan one of my all time favourites.

Love the Brachiosuarus, seen quite a few dinosaurs on selling sites lately

If only I could do 'em so quick.

I'm all out of kits to build as well, I've got a couple but they are what I'm selling and I've got built versions of them stored in my loft. Just waiting for pay day now so I can purchase more beasties.

I'm exactly the opposite - in fact much as it pains me to say so, I'm more of a collector than a builder at the minute.  I've just moved the majority of my kits down from the loft to under my bench to hopefully motivate me to build more!
