Some pictures from Gatwick Aviation Museum
Last went here in 2009 (see gallery here: http://blog.cjhm.net/gatwick-aviation-museum-2009, good to see the new hanger protecting some of the planes
Some pictures from Gatwick Aviation Museum American Car Show on 4th September 2016
Great mix of vehicles, not just American
Some pictures from this great free event down at Goodwood
Finished this a short while ago, it’s the great Bandai kit.
Engineering of the ‘friction fit’ parts is superb, used Tamiya Extra Thin Cement sparingly more because I thought I ought to rather than having to.
I left the plastic bare, airbushed gloss using Tamiya acrylic, then decals followed by Tamiya Matt to finish. Weathering was Vallejo Dark and Light Grey washes plus some Games Workshop wash too
Great fun, hope you enjoy.
Regular listeners will know I have a thing about Porsche 917s. During a recent visit to Beaulieu Motor Museum I took these pictures on my phone to help with build of Fujimi 1/24 scale kit (see how its going on twitter: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23917build%20cjhm&src=typd).
Driven by Pedro Rodriguez among others, a good history of car can be found here: https://www.goodwood.com/grrc/race/historic/2016/5/goodwood-greats-porsche-917k/
Fujimi 1/24 McLaren F1 kit
Interior is fictional, engine detail basic and the tyre tread pattern is totally made-up but think it looks OK finished
Chassis\Interior is mainly Tamiya blacks applied by Airbrush, body is Tamiya TS spray rubbed back with micro mesh 6000-12000 grade cloths and finished with car polish. Black trim is permanent marker, number plates are home made prints on photo paper.
Built these 20+ years ago. Lago Talbot is mix of a part built Merit original and Smer reissue; Alfa is all Smer. Both have wheel rims drilled out and fuse wire spokes added.
Recently rediscovered and repaired, not my best efforts but hope you enjoy.
