Finished my Fujimi Phantom FG.1 XT864/007 today. Shown is "007" as she appeared in early December 1977 as a member of 892 Squadron deployed on HMS Ark Royal. The kit is a fairly decent replication, but there are a few nice additions, like rubber wheels, and multiple version capability with the decals.
As many know, the primary role of the FG.1s was fleet defence, which consisted at that time of numerous flights to intercept the Soviet Tu-95s as they roamed the North Atlantic.
"007" is depicted on station, ready, armed and about to go "Hunting for Bear".
No photos. But very interested in the topic. Please keep me looped in if you get some..
Congratulations - nice work!
(and yes, Airfix IS the soul of the hobby.. let us not forget the images the Airfix kits and how they inspired so many to build..)

A wonderful old (and old!) kit. Well done.

Can anyone identify this modern Iraqi army vehicle? Seen recently. Need to know make/model/links and maybe if any kits exist?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys for the info. I was also PM'd suggesting that I use a bit of WD-40 in a Q-Tip. So I'll try a bunch of these suggestions.
Tim - did the WD-40 work? Its always been a proven trick for me..

Nice one Rodolfo. Bueno.
A couple of questions about the build:
The scale is 1/35, correct?
How did you find the quality of the parts and the instructions? (I have not had a look at the newer Trumpeter kits)

Just completed today is my PZL-37B(I) Łoś (Polish: "Moose") of the Polish Air Force, September 1939. The kit is the 1/72 Plastyk (ex Poland) and the aircraft depicted is "10/72.54" which I was able to copy with the few pictures available, as no aircraft of the type survive today. If you are not familiar with the Łoś , it was one of the most modern bombers in the world before WW2, due to having a laminar-flow wing, and its internal wing bomb bays. I have attached several pictures, including a picture of the Łoś next to a Bf110 to compare size. Enjoy! - Adam

Ok, I am looking for some help on this one...
I have an A4305 Testors airbrush which was a replacment from about three years ago. I know I clean it as best as I can, but quite simply, its as clean as I can get it, but it appears about worn out.
Does anyone know what the current situation is on warranty and replacement of these things? I like the airbrush, so its either buy a new one, or send it back.
Any feedback is welcome.

Looking good Clare. I too am building a little bi-plane, the Hawker Demon. I've got it painted now so I know what you're going through. Gonna apply the decals soon I hope. Keep plugging man, you're almost home!
Guys - who makes the Demon? Sounds like an early 1/72 Airfix in a bag....?
Congratulations Rodolfo - the face looks good in particular. Well done..
