Marks models

Postby mark37 » Thu Sep 04, 2014 1:57 pm

So been building models for a number of years, Sadly i dont have any of my old models left as they where rushed & got broke, But ive recently been been starting dioramas for my military vehicles, Most are all Airfix but i do have some Revell, all photographed later

I have a few more planes hanging in the shed, so i shall get photos of them later,

So first up the planes,

Thanks Mark, The Vulcan was a mad buy, Saw it in Toymasters for £25, and i couldnt leave it, Shes a big kit, and relativy simple, apart from the ballast

The coyote, warrior, & two of the jeeps have the matching etch detail parts, & it really helps the superb models,

Thanks for that mark, that's the first one I've seen on a forum.

If only you signed up 2 months ago, I'd have a brilliant build diary to ogle :lol:

:superlglue: Mark. !!! Just how much space is allocated to your builds mate ? As I am struggling with what I have collected over the years and some I would be lucky to find, let alone knowing where they are !!! :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

:angry-banghead: I am always telling myself I must clear some of them out, the ones that would today be considered a "Mess" but I hold heart and think that now there are so many ways of rescuing older models and repairs are no longer a challenge, so I hold on. !!!! The happiest addiction that I tell my friends has no ill effects, yeah, right. But I love your collection and I am sorry I never made a comment on it before as I have looked through it many times before. Mem-Mem-Memories, and I bet you can remember building each one and where it was built too. :shock: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

One of the plus sides to building aircraft, they dont look out of place hanging from the ceiling, a flying Tiger tank might look a bit odd!! :laughing-rolling: :D Very nice builds, I love the Vulcan and B-17 and of course the Lanc, my all time fav!!!! :clap: :clap:
