    That looks fantastic. Been wanting to get back into model making for a while.

    That is very good indeed. Out of interest the Alclad you mention, the sheen finish in particular - is that a new product? I always remember having to use floor cleaner to give my models the sheen I desired. I must get my airbrush out again. Missing it.

    Flory models dark dirt wash. It a water based clay wash, works really well and easy to use.

    I also have my first contributor build in the Jan 2018 issues of Airfix Model World. Very proud to achieve this.

    I built the Italeri 1/32 F35-A that features on the bottom left of the cover and the first featured build in this issue.

    Cool! Great job. It’s thrilling to be featured in a magazine about something you’re interested in. I still have fond memories of my picture being in the Anglers Mail when I was 11 and caught a 5lb Tench.

    For anyone interested and with no moral compass, the Daily Fail are giving away a Spitfire this Saturday. Pick up a Mail at WH Smiths and grab a free Airfix kit. It's only a small one but if you're new or want a small project, why not :)

    I've just received my second kit: a Tamiya Churchill. Hopefully I'll do it justice but it should complement my Tamiya Matilda II whether I do or not. I'm hesitant to post a snap of the Matilda painted, being in such illustrious company.

    Post it - it doesn't matter how good it is as long as you enjoyed it.

    I'm just putting the finishing touches on my first model. a 1:72 scale spitfire. Got to say it's looking pretty good so far!

    I got bought a 1:110 scale model of HMS Bounty for Christmas but that looked way too complicated, so I got the Spitfire and an ME109 to practice with first

    I remember doing a pretty awesome job of a Sunderland flying boat when I was a teen, but these photos on here are absolutely off the charts!

    @phasmahal, do you have photos of your collection?

    25 years to build this from scratch. Utterly amazing.
