What’s been in the pipeline lately from club members? Well, club chairman Martin has been busy putting the finishes touches to his latest finished kit, the Matchbox 1/48 scale Seasprite! Eagle-eyed site visitors may have noticed the Seasprite has already made it’s way into our display cabinet photo gallery. It’s a cracking job on a vintage kit, and according to Martin, it gobbled up the filler!
Elsewhere, Craig has been busy with his latest project, making use of the Airfix Land Rover Patrol kit to put together the beginnings of an Afghanistan diorama. There’s another two Landies to come yet, and of course the terrain too. One to watch out for!
In addition, preparations are well underway for our big display at the Bloxham Steam Rally. If you’d like to attend the two-day event, you can find out all of the details on the show’s own website: http://banbury-rally.co.uk/annualrally.html. If you can’t make it, keep tabs on the website for plenty of photos from the weekend!
The fun never stops when you’re building kits. Once one is done it’s onto the next! Here’s what some of the membership at IPMS Middleton Cheney have been up to recently…
Sam has been busy assembling a Pirates of the Caribbean fleet. He already has the Black Pearl finished, although he’s making some improvements to it, and now his sights are set firmly on a worthy adversary to the Pearl – the Flying Dutchman! With no kit available of the model itself, Sam is going all out with the conversion and here’s an in-progress shot of the work so far. Better stock up on that filler Sam!
Craig meanwhile, normally noted for his armour builds has finished two kits recently, but these are of the winged variety. Two Typhoons, one with propeller and one with jet!
And finally, James has been working on his latest F1 car, a Lotus 99T from 1987. There’s a first time for everything and on this occasion it’s using photo-etch and wiring up the car. Lots of tiny little details, and this is just a work in progress!
Let us know what you think in the comments below, and you never know, the Dutchman and Lotus might make it onto the website again in the near future – completed that is!
