Hello, folks -

Sorry, not been on the forum for a while (a combination of a bit of work study and trying to move house resulting in a temporary loss of motivation) and just catching up with what's going on.

I'll jump and add my OOB, brush painted build of a post WW1 Snipe if there are no objections!

Regards

Dave

Great to see this incredible beauty again, Dave!  The fact that you've achieved such remarkable results through brush painting makes it all the more extraordinary.
So, you moved house, too?  Set me back 2 months, mate.  Love our new home, though.
Cheers,
Bud

Thank you, Bud/RAGIII -

Bud - not quite there yet with the house - currently in the process of going through all the legal what-not.   If all goes well, we may be in a position to exchange contracts by end next week.  If that happens, we may possibly move in by end August beginning of September.  When I do move, it will be interesting to see which of my built models survive ................!

Regards

Dave

How far are you moving?  Our move was only 35 miles, so I made several small trips in my pick-up prior to the BIG move.  Models and display cases made it in those trips with very minimal undercarriage damage to 2 models, easily repaired.  Hopefully, you can do the same.
Cheers,
Bud

Bud,

Less than 3 miles would you believe - but I gain a better house with a garage and all round better area and easier car parking.

Oh!  Well, then.  You could walk your models over, Dave.
Good luck, mate.

Here is the Snipe from my recent Dual build. I have experimented with editing the original photos:
Here is the link to the build: I didn't get terrific results from the Editing so I took some more photos : Not perfect but better!

Truly stunning, Amigo!  I love the color.  Your paint work, decal application, rigging are all flawless, clean and precise.  Outstanding.

Bud
