  1. I agree with limeypilot, it is a lovely kit. I only wish I had thought of sanding the fuselage sides down as I wanted an open cockpit. I even tried a vacform canopy. Stephen
  2. Nice to see something different being built. Stephen
  3. I have started on the cockpit PE. PE instructions. PE. As you can see I have cut out some bits and they have been installed with no problems but the seat is going to be some fun. Seat instructions. There are 17 parts to make up the pilot's seat. Seat part 44 back and front. Thanks for looking. Stephen
  4. A friend at work was telling me his primary school teacher was in the Dambuster raid. Top stuff a local bloke in such an important mission. I gonna build his plane. Bought the kit and Eduard Big Ed and blow me down I can't find any reference to a Brian Mattingly DFC on that mission. I came to the conclusion teachers tell S*** Stories to impress the kiddies. The build is going to be fun, never had so much PE to play with. I am on holidays from Fools Paradise and I want a large project to keep me entertained and hopefully this project will end up going well as my last few have not been so satisfying. I have been trying Vallejo paint, I find it very soft and scratch the paint off with my fingernails. A real Gordon Ramsay moment. Box art Thanks for looking Stephen
  5. Nice to see a Starfighter being built. Lovely plane
  6. Very nice work , Ken. Especially the cockpit.
  7. I will be watching with great interest as I built one in the late eighties. I also had rigged it, yes a lot of work. I moved from Brisbane to Casino left the model on the bonnet of my car and a gust of wind flew it away. I picked up most of the pieces with the intentions of rebuilding it. It would be easier to start with a new model. Best of luck with this one. Stephen

    Some more photos of the kit bits. Decals. Hope they are better than the Zvezda decals. I have a Zvezda Mil 8MT and the decals are pretty sad in that kit, too. Marking options. PE I should start looking for reference material on the internet. I don't know where to start. Thanks for looking . Stephen
  10. My son gave a Tamiya Hind for Christmas (which I have finished and have been too slack to take any pics), this has started an interest in Russian helicopters. This will be a slow build as I want to finish some other projects before this one. Probably should not start but I am having trouble fitting the canopy to the XP-97. Some pics of the kit bits. I have also got Eduard mask and Part PE set. Thanks for looking. Stephen

  12. Love your video builds Mr Big Modeller. Stephen
  13. Some teachers were just cruel and they enjoyed it
