I vote for number 3, that photo etch looks way too fiddly to attempt 2! Best of luck whichever way you go


Cheers man. It occurred to me the other day, that I'm fiddling about and trying to decide on the seatbelts, when the kit includes a pilot anyway, so the things won't even be visible. You're right however that it's just too fiddly to be worth it.

Since then I've added the Eduard cockpit details. Having them in a couple of solid resin pieces is unquestionably easier than the photo etch I used on the Lightning.



They've gone together very nicely, and just some paint touch-up needed on the console mount.



Overall view of the cockpit. Some work is still needed, mainly painting the metal areas and the seat leather. Once that's done the fuselage can go together and I can start work on the wings.



I've also applied the basecoat for the Ghostkeel. I thought about a mainly grey base given that it's a stealth suit, but couldn't find enough differentiation between the grey armour and the darker-grey joints and limbs, so plan is a red base, with the grey, blue and some white to break it up significantly.

Thanks all, don't forget to comment.

With all the complex ejection seats nowadays, it’s odd to think that old aircraft just had what looks like a fold down seat! The details all look great, especially the stuff that you’ll barely see like the cockpit floor.

The ghostkeel looks good in red, it’s a stealthy red I assume?

Those red Tau . A marked improvement over the yellow if I'm honest. I think I preferred the yellow accent because it's also a 'hot' colour (rather than the 'cold' blue), but I'm really taken with how vivid the red is - which paint are you using for that?

Also looking forward to the Mustang - and very impressed as well by that cockpit dash. I've not tried one of the solid resin ones, but I might give them a go in future. Regarding the belts, either option 1 or 3 would be my preference, IMHO. I think you may struggle with getting the PE to bend to the exact contours of the pre-moulded ones, with the result that you'll be left with a bit of a lipor some gaps between each medium. If you can manage it, all credit too you - but I have a suspicion that it may be a bit of a headache for you.

Looking good all round

EDIT: Since I've been ninja'd and can now see the cockpit - go for option 2, looks to be easier than I anticipated

It's quite baffling isn't it? The Mustang and the EE Lightning are only 14 years apart yet the increase in complexity is staggering. The progress made despite the post-war struggles is absolutely incredible.

Oh yes it's a very stealthy red, either that or they're fighting on a lava-planet

Great progress mate! Tidy detail work that will make all the difference to the finished project. I admire your patience and commitment!

That red is a great colour for the tau too, nice and deep. Definitely pairs better with the blue! Excited to see how it progresses with the different colours added.

Good luck!

Thanks tzurk, I agree that the blue works better. The Ghostkeel looks a lot better now the red's been toned down.

The final touches on the Mustang cockpit have been finished. Just a few decals here and there but they really add to the cockpit. There's also a few injection marks but they won't be visible on the assembled model.



In other news I managed to get an absolute bargain...



I'm not the only one who thinks the Stormsurge is a pretty awful model, little stumpy arms and squatting like it's taking a dump. However, the deal also came with a crucial upgrade.



The arms made by PuppetsWar turn this into an absolutely gorgeous model.



For some reason the arms also came with 2 extra shoulders and an extra left claw.

At the moment I'm still debating how to pose it. Do I go for:
- Weapon mounted on the back like the example above?
- Same as above but with the missile pods on the arms, like a Broadside?
- Weapon carried like a rifle, Titanfall-style?

I think each option has it's own difficulties. The Titanfall-option would be the hardest as while the arms include a pistol-grip hand, actually getting the weapon to fit in this manner will be particularly difficult.

Assembly of the legs has started. The little nubbin highlighted below locks into the lower legs to give the dump-pose. Just cutting it off allows far greater freedom in posing.



At this point I was looking at magnetising the waist. I was hoping I could just glue a crossbeam made out of spare sprue and attach a magnet to that, similar to what I did with my Defiler previously. Not really that easy however due to the waist extending below the joint.



You can see what I mean there, so a fair bit of the ball joint would have to be removed for the crossbeam to fit. I have a plan of removing the ball joint and using that as the mount, at the moment it seems to be working, but the real test comes when it's done and wherever the magnet will hold the weight.

That's all for now. I have a couple of things coming in the post, so watch this space.

I’m not really up to speed with Tau models, but you’re right that the Stormsurge looks a bit silly squatting with its short arms. The mod kit looks so much better and in keeping with some of the other suits I’ve seen.

So now the Mustang's cockpit is completed I can finally start putting the whole thing together.

Fuselage went together with a little bit of difficulty. Some small amount of filler will be required but no major problems. The wings were a lot easier, as the whole wing subassembly just slots in very neatly.



I've also added other details such as the exhausts, propeller mount and the flaps/ailerons. Next step will be the final fuselage parts and the tail. I'm keeping the whole undercarriage off until it's painted to avoid damaging it. Wish I had done that with the Lightning but it's always a learning opportunity.



Also made a good bit of progress with the Tau. Fireblade's finished. Mounted him to a fallen Imperial flag. The icon used (not visible) is a little reference to my own Guard army. Some other little details to complete but I've got the basic scheme nailed down.



And finally another big package has arrived. Every now and again Airfix put together a mystery bundle, I'm guessing for any excess stock in their warehouses. Half the price of getting it separately, but you don't know what you're going to get besides choosing aircraft, cars, or ships.

Well mine arrived today and I'm pretty happy with the results



I've got a nice variety of UK, US and Soviet/Vietnamese aircraft from different eras, and a couple of 1/72 scale as well so something new there.

As always, any C&C is appreciated

Thanks man, bit annoyed that the Meteor didn't include a pilot. Might have to find a proxy somewhere.

So I've had quite a few little projects to juggle over the past few days. Progress on the Stormsurge is going well. I realised something rather important when considering the arms, in that both the torso and arms both use a socket-joint, meaning I'd have to create a replacement ball to fill it. Took me a while thinking it over, and here's what I've come up with:

Created a large ball of green stuff and pushed it into the socket. I then pressed the arm socket in place over the ball so it moulded into shape, very much like just the standard moulding practice.



I've given this a day or two to harden fully, then created a collar for the join using the plastic ring seal from a couple of bottles of vape juice. The little bottles you get for £2.99 from all good questionable corner-shops. There was some imprinted text on the plastic, some form of warning label that wouldn't sand off, so I've applied some putty to hide it.



I admit it looks rather messy. What I might do is wrap a couple of lengths of guitar string around the collar to simulate that ribbed look. Ribbed is better than plain in this case

I've also drilled and glued a pin ready to accept the shoulder joint, although that's on hold while I work out the actual arm configuration.

Over to the Airfix side, I decided to start on the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk first flew in 1938 and despite it's relative obscurity compared to the P-51 and similar fighters, it did show itself to be a crucial aircraft during various WWII theatres. While inferior compared to similar Axis aircraft, it inflicted severe damage against enemy formations often suffering similarly severe losses at the same time. Standard armament was 6x Browning .50s as well as a maximum of 2000lbs of bombs on various hardpoints.

Of the >13,000 built, only 28 remain in airworthy, with another 13 on static display and another 36 undergoing restoration.


Being a 1/72 kit, I'm not bothering with third-party detail sets as they'll be too fiddly to handle and too small to notice anyway. This kit in particular is rather unusual as instead of the standard method of "glue cockpit into fuselage, glue the wings on", this kit goes with "glue the interior to the wings themselves, the whole assembly slots into the fuselage from underneath".

Overall assembly of the cockpit was simple enough, and a nice coat of Vallejo US Green was applied. Next steps will be to wash it with Nuln Oil and apply the cockpit dial decal before attaching it to the fuselage.

One key difference as well is I'm planning to mount both this and the MiG-17 on flying bases, just to add some variety to the collection.



Progress has been made on the Mustang. I thought to take the plunge with Alclad paints again, and once more I was disappointed. I thought it'd be much better on a brand new kit compared to the terrible results I had with the Lightning, but this was just as much of a headache, if not more for the following:

- The wet-and-dry paper supplied by Alclad simply started removing the primer coat, despite being given several days to dry throughout.
- The silver coat simply ruined the finish, with the overall texture looking like paint stripper had been applied.

I've given up on the Alclads, they're just a waste of time and money. I since went back over with Scale75 metal colours and this is much better. Applied a wash of Vallejo Metal Wash with the airbrush which settled nicely in the panel lines when applied with a very low pressure.

I then masked off the areas to apply the yellow, which went on nicely, until the time came to remove the masks.



This wing looks nice and neat, right?




Not so much on the other areas. Despite having a decent coat of spray varnish, the mask has taken off the topmost silver layer, with the Alclad visible underneath. Shouldn't be too difficult to patch it up, it's just another annoying inconvenience. The texture on the unaffected silver isn't anywhere near as visible on the real thing.



On a final note, as part of my interest into the Cold War I've been trying for a while now to track down a copy of Threads, a multi-BAFTA winning 1984 BBC production depicting the Sheffield area of the UK experiencing a nuclear attack. Due to the shocking nature of the film it's only been broadcast 3 times in the UK. Now I found a copy (remastered no less!) on Blu-Ray, I also found this guy for sale.



Despite only a brief mention in the film, the "scared traffic warden turned arbitrator" has become the poster-child of the show. I found this guy on Crooked Dice, who deal with "obvious movie and TV characters but legally distinct". Brilliant quality on this guy, no flash or vent threads, and was only £5 including shipping! If anyone is looking for pop-culture figures for 40k, D&D or anything else, I highly recommend these guys.

Word of warning, if you do plan to watch Threads, it's pretty rather shocking. I saw a vid of the bunker scenes collaborated, and any Peep Show fans who remember Super Hans' New Years party will understand my reaction:




That's all for now. Next time I hope to have some ideas for the Stormsurge arms, as well as the Mustang's paintjob repaired.

As always, if you have thoughts or critiques, please take the time to comment. It's turning into a bit of a digital wasteland here.

Just a small update today as I'm slowly packing stuff away to move flats, as well as getting over the side effects from my second jab.

Working a bit more on the Stormsurge torso. Still trying to find the leftover guitar string for the shoulder mounts but have tested the overall pose and am quite happy with it. In the meantime I also decided to try something rather new.



I admit it's far from the cleanest job but the scuffs and putty isn't visible once it's put together. The extra magnets in the bottom of the torso are for the close-defence weapons. Just taken straight from the pretty vast number of Crisis weapons I have piling up, but they have a certain similarity to the torso mounts on the KV139 Tau'nar, so I'm pretty happy with it.



The arms and front torso plate haven't been attached yet but here's a rough mockup so far. You can see the Burst Cannons on the torso mount, and the main gun has been magnetised in both positions, because why the hell not? I'm still at a bit of a roadblock however as to how to attach the cluster missiles. The coolest (at least in my opinion) option would be to mount them on the arms, similar to a Broadside, but that'd require a fair bit of cutting and scratchbuilding. I may just go for the shoulder-mounted option, but then actually creating a mount of some kind might be trickly.

Anyone has any suggestions or critiques, do let me know.

Thanks man, I've hit a real dead end with the missile placement however so the project may stall a little.

So I'm currently in the process of moving flats, but before everything was packed away I made a little more progress with a few pieces.

I hit an absolute deadend with the Stormsurge missile placement however. I said in a previous post that it'd be good to have them arm-mounted, like the Broadside, but this would require a lot of cutting, shaping and sanding of the PW arms, and seeing as I only have one pair of missile pods, not something I want to risk.

With that in mind I found another site which produces exactly what I'm looking for



Designed for exactly what I'm looking for. The missile pods just attach directly to the arms, no cutting required. Means I don't need the PW arms anymore, might just sell them on.

Overall just a few little other bits to finish off. Was wondering wherever to have the Pulse Driver fins closed, or open as if the weapon is releasing hot coolant. I then just realised how utterly stupid the Earth Caste can be:



Imagine. The Pulse Driver has just missed its target as predicted, and opens up to cool down. The boiling hot coolant (in blue) is released right into the exposed cockpit and the unfortunate crew inside. Certainly gave me a chuckle when I realised.


Onto the Airfix. I've made a fair bit of progress on the Warhawk. I've slowly been trying to patch up the Mustang's paintjob, but it's slow progress and I don't want to risk any further damage to the basecoat. Given a tiny kit like the Warhawk, I thought I'd have a try at preshading.

With preshading, you essentially apply the darker shadow to areas before applying the base colour. In this case, as I've seen done with many aircraft kits, it's used around the panel lines.

I basecoated with grey primer, then went over with Vallejo black along the panel lines. A steady hand helps, but I had the shakes quite badly trying this but it seems to have worked out ok.



Unfortunately I didn't take an "in-progress" pic, so this isn't mine but shows the process.

I then went over with a light coat of Vallejo green at a low airbrush pressure, only around 15PSI. I was really sceptical about this but it's worked surprisingly well.



It's nice and subtle, and the irregularity of it in places helps with the overall effect IMO. This particular colour scheme has a grey underside so I did the same underneath.



Would definitely recommend this technique. Larger 40k models like Baneblades or grav-tanks would benefit from this.

Anyway that's all for now, and possibly ever. I've realised that there really isn't much traffic on this P&M Blog compared to others so I might just retire this one depending on any further interest. I may post less regular updates but if anyone does have any feedback it'd be appreciated.

The pre-shading looks to have worked well, it adds to the ages look I think. Hopefully you keep posting, as I for one am finding your work interesting.

In the medley of packing up and moving flat I came across a particular kit, one which I personally consider a holy grail of aircraft modelling. Given that I can be partial to impulse buys, didn't take me long to snap this up at half the price I've seen in the past.



This kit is a Tactical Strike and Reconnaissance 2 (TSR-2), a limited-edition kit Airfix put out in the mid-2000s. It's a lot larger than I initially imagined and will be a pure delight to work on.

First a bit of info:

The TSR-2 was commissioned in the 1960's to provide the UK with a Mach 2.5 nuclear bomber/recon craft before the ICBM became the dominant form of nuclear deterrence worldwide. The TSR used a pair of Olympus engines (same as the Vulcan and later Concorde) to cruise at Mach 2 at around 50,000ft carrying up to 4 WE.177 nuclear weapons.

Unfortunately the TSR project soon fell into problems, mainly as some of the tech was too advanced for the time, and as mentioned was being overlooked in favour of ICBMs. Eventually the Labour government scrapped the project after only 3 were built, of which only one actually ever flew, to be replaced by more conventional aircraft such as the F4 Phantom and Tornado. Only 2 complete airframes remain today.





All aircraft have four dimensions; length, height, width and politics. TSR-2 simply got the first three right

Quite frankly a remarkable aircraft for the time, going to be an absolute delight to do. Given the rare nature of the kit I'm going to take my time with this, and am planning on some third-party upgrades before I start anything, namely a cockpit upgrade (near impossible to find one however), undercarriage, and a nuclear payload.

Thanks all

Ah that’s so cool! TSR-2 really was an iconic aircraft, probably more so after it pretty much marked the end of UK aircraft development (unless one believes that Tempest will ever come to fruition). I didn’t realise there were still airframes in existence… I might need to find an excuse to go to Cosford! I like the sound of a nuclear payload being modelled

Thanks man. I'm sceptical myself of the new Tempest, might be interesting but then again is it worth the cost when we've sunk so much into the F-35?

So I did tell a bit of a lie, I don't actually have the TSR yet. Had it delivered to the parents' place while I was moving flat. Picking it up tonight so will do a proper unboxing later this weekend. I have however managed to source the Eduard cockpit interior from a French model shop. Lucky as this upgrade kit is rarer than the TSR itself. That was the hardest upgrade to find, next would be the WE.177s.

So I've had a good look through the TSR2 and I've certainly got my moneys worth:



Fuselage is the standard 2-halves arrangement, and the Terminator shows the size of this thing. I was honestly expecting something half the size!



Wings are in upper and lower halves, with the tail and ailerons similarly moulded in single pieces. The kit isn't particularly old, dating from the mid 2000's yet the detail is pretty decent for the time, nice crisp panel lines etc.



Remainder of the fuselage and other details. Again, nice condition, no issues there.



Two halves of the nuclear payload, looks more like the older Red Beard nuke rather than the newer WE.177. Plan is to get a replacement bomb and use this for something else, probably a 40k objective marker or something.

In the meantime the cockpit parts have been ordered from France, hopefully should be here within a week or so, at which point I can start building up the cockpit itself and other smaller gubbins before taking on the main fuselage.

Still not much progress as I'm still unpacking in the new flat but had a very important parcel arrive:

Given the rarity of this kit I was struggling to find the cockpit upgrade, similar to the one used on the Lightning a few pages back. The company itself didn't have any spare and every major retailer I came across didn't have any either. While it wouldn't be the end of the world if I couldn't get it, it would add that extra touch to the final piece.

Eventually I found a small distributor based in France of all places, managed to get their last one. I would be pretty surprised if I could get another anywhere else.



While I've worked with the photoeched stuff before, I still can't get over how small it can be. Just for reference, here's it compared to a penny.



Pretty small and fiddly parts needing folding and gluing. This one's a bit easier as the parts are self-adhesive so no messing about with superglue.

Next step would be to get the cockpit prepped and ready for the upgrade parts, but I may put it to one side and get some of the outstanding projects out of the way first.

Thanks all

So now my workdesk is properly set up, spent a fair bit of time over the weekend hopping between the various projects.

For the 40k fans, the Tau are still packed away. Next step is to get some different arms; I found a set online designed to fit the Missile Pods nicely to give that Broadside look.

For the Airfix fans, been pretty busy with various decals.

Make a little start on the TSR-2, first step being the cockpit tub. The photoetch parts unfortunately don't seem to be the correct shade of blue, being much lighter than the Airfix instructions or real life photos. Took a little bit of trying, eventually managed to match it by eye, mixing Vallejo light grey, white and a little Sea Blue.

Below is just part of the photoetch instructions. I will never ever complain about 40k instructions ever again.


Here's the result so far:



Pilot's console is complete, the co-pilot console shown in the instructions above is still incomplete. Side panels have also been added. Fit wasn't 100% perfect but I managed to get it done.

For the Warhawk, the large decals have been applied. After a coat of Vallejo Decal Softener they settled very nicely on the panels.





Just got the tiny decals to apply. They're not that visible over the green but at least then I'll know it's completed.

Also dusted off the Lightning, applied a few more decals there.



Little bit complicated trying to merge 3 different sets of decals but it's coming together so far, fingers crossed it stays easy

Thanks all, any comments appreciated.

Your TSR-2 cockpit is looking great. I've just finished the 1/72 version and if the 1/48 is anything like that you might want to re-enforce the undercart when you get to it. It can end up a bit bow legged.

The Lightining is very much looking the part, BMF is an absolute classic scheme.
