Portman Productions 2020

Postby Stuart » Wed Jan 08, 2020 10:28 am

One of my ambitions for this year is to stop leaving dead-end threads everywhere - my start vs completion rate at the moment is truly awful - so if it's alright with the Mod's I'm going to follow the Duke's lead and start one of these 'Workbench WIP' threads and see how it goes.

Asides from my ongoing Albanian builds and the Tornado GR.1, I've recently started this - details to follow.

Image

When it arrives, I'm also going to be starting a model of this (for a classic British Ship kit GB on another forum) - any guesses as to what ship it is?

Image

Cheers All!

Stuart, by all means, make a single build thread for all of your projects like Mark has going.

I’m gonna take a semi educated guess and say that carrier is HMS Ark Royal. I’m not up to speed on all the RN carriers of WWII. USN and IJN I’m pretty good with.

Thanks Carlos!

You are indeed spot on, it is the Ark Royal - I've just ordered the old (1966) Airfix 1/600 kit. Probably not the best idea for a first ship but it'll be fun trying! I'm hoping to start it next week when it arrives.

I thought it was Ark Royal. I built the old Revell 1/720 scale kit of her long ago, so the lines looked vaguely familiar. As far as the Airfix kit goes, older kits are usually simple to build. That is in its favor. I bet that it will be fun indeed. I look forward to this project of yours.

Thanks Carlos,

So I started on the kit yesterday - here's the box...

Image

And here's what's in it...

Image

Image

The plastic does generally look nice but one of the main issues of this boxing is all the flash...

Image

But I've made a start on it - mostly just flash removal on all the main parts! As you can see it'll be a reasonable sized model.

Image



In other news, I'm still working on the load for the Tornado. everything is painted and I just need to get the decalling done.

Image

The Mig has been painted and clear coated - again it's onto the decals (thankfully only 8). I've painted up all the other bits left to fit other than the tyres and I might add the missing pitot tube.

Image

Image

Image

I'm making progress on the Kfir - I've not been overly impressed with this kit thus far. The fit is pretty poor and I've had to put filler everywhere (which I hate doing). I'm toying with the idea of putting this one on a stand

Image

Image

I've also started doing a bit of work on this kit that I was given for Christmas. I've no idea what the scale is but it'll be fun to put it together.

Image

Cheers and thanks for taking a look!

Damn fine work on varied subjects! That Ark Royal box looks real

Yeah... :hmm: Not intentional but just how it worked out. I'm hoping to get a couple finished over the next few weeks!
