January 2007


De Havilland DH4 Royal Naval Air Service (Airfix)

Actually started on Boxing Day and finished on the 4th of Jan. This is a superb little kit, however mine came with the entire lower wing missing, such that I had to fabricate a new one from plastic card. This was my first attempt at using lycra thread to rig a biplane. It sort of worked; certainly better than the fuse wire I had been using.

Dassault Mirage IVA AdA (Heller)

A nice if basic kit. Nearly attempted a NMF on this one, but wimped out at the last moment and used the kit decals. Rather a shame that Heller chose such a bland scheme for the kit; there are many much more interesting schemes out there. Nevertheless, it builds into an impressive kit.
