    Ok, that will be different Pat. Umm could you pinch a Hurricane canopy? Otherwise, you might have to form one yourself

    That look great Andy, really nice!

    Sounds good Smithy, we can't have too many Spits Don't let the SE5a go cold on you though - some guys can do it, but I find it hard resume working on a model again after a break.
  4. Agree, that's looking good Tom
  5. Good to see you are back! That's still looking good, if more discreet than before BTW, what is TS80? (I'm showing my ignorance)

    OT: I built their 8.8 cm years ago, it was a nice easy build back then ... As to the figures, it depends which edition of the 88 you have - the first two editions had travel bogies (?) which would look cool towed behind your 1/2 track ... making a nice vingette and allow you to send some of the figures for the spares box.

    Nothing wrong with that approach, just too slow drying
  8. 'FACE OFF' More Top Tips p12

    Ah, sorry to hear that Badder Oil paints do take an age to dry (at least, mine do - over a month for me in this weather) - and they can be too glossy for modelling. Do you use umber (burnt or raw) at all? It is *supposed* to help with drying of used as a base coat or as a siccative (drier). The other thing that I've found does help is artists' quality turprntine (but still too slow for a GB).

    Your Meteor sounds good Steve. And it will be good to see some of the European contingents represented too.

    Hello Colin, The discussions got out of hand - we've simplified the ideas here, if it, or was, RAF then it's in. You can't have too many Mosquitos - OK, I work in High Wycombe, where a lot of the wooden components were build - I believe that the former factory I'm in was a sub-contractor, but, then again, so were half the factories in HWycombe. Whirlwind, Defiant or Spitfire? All good options, don't worry about flooding the BoB, that, as you say, was their 'finest hour'.

    Sounds good, welcome to the build

    Hello Ade Your Spitfire will be very welcome - A Spitfire may not be the most original choice of subject for an RAF GB, but we'd be a poor Commemoration GB without at least one version of the iconic fighter.

    A bit late for this one, but you can save yourself a deal of effort with Milliput by using water and a damp tissue, brush, finger - or whatever - to clean up before it sets off. MUCH less effort than abrading after, though that is an option. Nice build BTW
  14. Only 8! Nice one H, that's looking good
