    Great job OT, I look forward to the final reveal. Cheers Greg

    Thanks OT, I was thinking the same but couldn't find any images relating to the proposed scheme. In the end I started doing the stripes earlier today in light grey per the instructions. Cheers Greg Cheers Mike, Thanks for looking in. All the best Greg๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. PK-109 Junkers Ju 188

    Update 4: IMG_2546 by G DSC, on Flickr IMG_2547 by G DSC, on Flickr Nearly there now. First pic is the assembled airframe as Matchbox intended (without the engines) in its "natural" colours. Basic camo applied in pic 2 ready for the stripes, which the instructions tell me should be light grey. The upper gunner mg has broken off (typical) but i managed to save it from the carpet monster so should be reattached for the final update. Thanks for looking, Cheers Greg

    Cheers Bernd!๐Ÿ˜€ Scratch building is not one of my strengths but I wanted to give it a go on this project. The gunners cage is somewhat crude but not much can be seen behind the thick transparencies. I will try to post some update pics this weekend as the airframe is together now and painting has begun. How's the Canberra going? Cheers Greg

    Update 3: IMG_2542 by G DSC, on Flickr IMG_2543 by G DSC, on Flickr IMG_2544 by G DSC, on Flickr IMG_2545 by G DSC, on Flickr So from the top: fuselage joined, and two of the three crew installed. The gunner position. Hmmm...a tad over engineered on my part! It looks like hes sitting in a back cage ladder! This little structure was perhaphs too difficult a scratch for me. Once i had it all put together it bent out of shape somewhat. Still not too much will be seen once its installed in the cockpit. Wings: gear doors at the back rescribed and front doors tidied up a bit. Finally fuselage with the start of the scribing on the raised panel lines. A bit tedious to be honest but too late to change my mind now!! Anyway thats it for now. Next update should present somes thimg that looks like an aeroplane, i hope. Cheers Greg
  8. Panzer VI Tiger STGB

    Sign me up please. I have a couple in the stash. This should give me the impetus to actually build one of them. Cheers Greg
  9. Great addition to your 190 flight line Bernd. Excellent work as always mate. Cheers Greg ๐Ÿ†
  10. Matchbox II GB Chat

    Question for the host's 're part started kits. I have the Matchbox 110 in the stash that is started but I am unsure if it qualifies as less than 25 per cent. Basically stages 1 and 2 out of 11 have been completed. That's 8 out of 52 parts assembled. So can you tell me if I can enter it in to the GB or not? Cheers Greg
  11. PK-109 Junkers Ju 188

    Thanks Glynn, They are nicely detailed but a bit on the small side. Maybe the magnifying effect of the thick glass will make them look the correct size. Cheers Greg๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. Supermarine Spitfire Mk22/24.

    Good luck with the next part Steve. This is where my one crashed and burned when I built it way back in the day. Great job so far. Cheers Greg
  13. PK-109 Junkers Ju 188

    I like your thinking OT. I have tried polishing out a flaw caused by the clear part coming off the sprue, and the seam is only visable on the blister parts but I can live with that. Cheers Greg.
  14. Old Airfix B-17 Bit o Lace

    Lovely stuff, The wing chipping looks great. Can't wait to see the next update. Cheers Greg
  15. PK-109 Junkers Ju 188

    Yes, I know what you mean. I have been doing plenty of dry fitting especially with the rear cockpit glazing. Speaking of which, how did you deal with the seam over the gun blisters? Cheers Greg
