  1. Tony I've always admired the finish you get on your models using a brush! This one is no exception and looks terrific.
  2. D-Day Double build.

    Think you will be pleasantly surprised. The glazing and cockpit area is massive and a lot can be seen. I built the mark 1 at the end of last year and it surprised me. It's the fuselage internals that you can't see. Great work so far by the way
  3. Ah of course. I always seem to forget about using tape!
  4. Hi Iain, i built this kit kit last year and it's lovely. I didn't have any issues with the turret glazing and all fit quite well overall. Getting the sliding doors on is fun... a bit fiddly. Its a shame that the kit doesn't include any decals for seat belts or moulded ones, so if you have some PE ones I'd recommend them as the pit looks a bit strange with nothing there. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
  5. Great quote, thanks for sharing. No idea where the spitfire will live once built but I will cross that bridge when it comes to it..... heres a link to the spit im planning if it's of interest to you: https://goo.gl/images/x4kJAF
  6. No vb for me. Going for V-S a malta based grey/ azure blue spit for something a little different. Got some aftermarket ready to pimp her up a bit too. Just hope I can make a decent job of it
  7. Now this has got to be worth looking forward to. No pressure mate 😂
  8. Haven't visited the forum for some time but managed to get my vote in! Great to see we're a go guys. The next build for me me will be this one in June, looking forward to tackling the spit.
  9. Thanks ed will take a look. Still haven't found the will to sort it out as yet....
  10. Hi mate I will take some pictures of the bomb bay and doors shortly so you can see what they look like.
  11. Good afternoon guys A quick update just to say that the Stirling has been finished with the exception of the inner bomb bay doors. Unfortunately the individual doors have caused me so many problems that I've ran out of patience with the build and have decided that I can live with it not having them on for now. The main ones on the outside of the bomb bay have been added to make it look a little more finished. The doors are a nightmare as single pieces and they just won't line up and then stick in place. It's a shame as the build is 99% there but I can't get motivated to fight with this last bit. Photos to follow as soon as but she's done. And she doesn't fit in the cabinet. Unbelievably her wingspan is too big.....
  12. Good grief! That's one heck of a stash. The Heinkel looks like it could be an interesting WIP 😉
  13. I know what you mean. It's easy to lose interest and motivation at times. Think after this one I'm going to take a break for a while myself and move onto something else for a bit. Will pick up again at some point but everyone has a limit, both in terms of shelf space and interest. I'm sure you will get it back and come back with another cracking build, or two! The stash and recent purchases sound interesting though.. ..
  14. Thanks mate that's very nice of you to say so. Whats on your next to do list?
