iModeler random award October.

November 20, 2017 · in Uncategorized · · 48 · 1.7K

In October, I was very fortunate to win the iModeler . I would like to take this opportunity to thank Martin and all the team for the Airfix 1/48th Curtiss Tomahawk Mk.II I received. I've not yet posted a WIP on iModeler, but would like to make this my first contribution when I start it in the next week or so. Thanks again to Martin and all the members of the team, warmest regards, Julian.

  1. Congratulations Julian - happy modelling!

  2. Congrats Julian, I hear it's a great kit. Look forward to seeing her done.

  3. I'm happy for you, sir...but why does your dog looks happier than you do in that picture? Just kidding, my friend...that's a nice kit - congratulations, Julian. 🙂

  4. I know you'll do a fantastic job, Julian! Congrats!

  5. Congratulations, I look forward to seeing the build.

  6. Julian, congratulations! You'll like it, best one of its type yet!

  7. Congratulations on the award

  8. Good choice Julian. Enjoy.

  9. Can't wait to see the build, sir.

  10. Congratulations, Julian! You’re going to love that kit. I built the Pearl Harbor version back in January. Just got the RAF Tomahawk this past week. Which version are you doing? I’m planning on using the 112 Sq. shark mouth of course!

    • Thanks John. I've just been admiring your Pearl Harbour version, and very nice it is too. I'm taking a shine to the 26 Squadron version at the moment. I will look at both yours and Tom's for a few tips.

      • Thanks for the compliment, Julian. I didn’t put the aerial wires on mine simply because it makes it harder to keep the dust off off. I won a bronze with it at our local IPMS (Butch O’hare chapter) contest here in suburban Chicago last week. I can’t wait to see yours. I really like this kit and may even do a Soviet version too.

  11. Looking forward to seeing it Julian!

  12. You're a lucky man, Julian. Enigmatic smile indeed!

    Like you, the only thing I've posted are comments and I've made a lot of virtual friends. I've actually spent some time with Tom Bebout (a great fellow). but he's the only one I know of. SO far!


  13. Congratulations my friend ! You picked out a great choice I might add. If this kit builds like the previous P-40 that Airfix recently released then you will have a blast with it. And despite what some naysayers have said on other websites, this is a very accurate model. Trust me on that. The flaps really do have a little gap on the trailing edge when they are raised. I've been around the real plane and took a ton of detail photos. If you need some pictures of the real plane during your build, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Congrats again my friend. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  14. Wonderful. Hope you'll enjoy the build!

  15. Congratulations, Julian, I know it's a random award, but very much deserved anyway. These latest Airfix kits are getting rave reviews and have brought Airfix back to the forefront as far as plastic kits are concerned. I'm certain you'll make the most of this model, and I, for one, can't wait to see the result.

  16. Congrats! This is a great kit. You will enjoy it thoroughly!

  17. Congratulations Julian. Wonderful Airfix kit and I'm looking forward to see your building progress on this one.

  18. Congrats Julian. Awaiting the build...

  19. Congrats Julian! looking forward to the build

  20. Thank you Cricket. It's been a while since I've built anything.
