Okaaaaayyyy photos cannot appear here, cannot be Embedded !

Hope that it will be fixed !

I worked on my FR.47 just to catch up and some multi bladed Seafires !

This pic just to show how thin one must sand the Aires parts !

And here's the difference between the Aires and airfix parts

https://www.flickr.com/photos/144470481@N02/39065472082/in/dateposted-public/

There's a hell of a sanding to do but it is Worth the price !

Hope that everything will be fixed tomorrow !

Sincerely.

Well that was an almighty catch up. Took me a while to go to page one as I read I said I would on page five almost a month ago and must have got side tracked. Either way a lovely thread and some wonderful work going on. I’m all up to date now so you can continue at your own leisure. Hope you had a great Christmas CC and a happy new year.

all the best.

Hello dears,

And there will be some Spitfire too in 2018...

Did I say that I will do Something else ??

Seemingly.... I lied !

There has been a swap, one more....

25802527308_34889c9653_b.jpg

I like the ICM Spitfire.. But seriously... A squared spade grip !!

So the Seafire 47 has cut a deal since she got a Resin control stick

And the extra late gyro gunsight from the Eduard is gone for the .47 and the Mk 24

24805528537_d36e4bca42_b.jpg

Another wing story !!

Good New, Eduard restart his Spitfire Serie !!

Who will bet on a PR XI or better some Mk XIV ???

Dreams are not taxed yet, so let's have a lot !!

Have a pristine Sunday !

Sincerely.

Nice thread Corsaircorp, I feel my 2018 going the same way with only a Mk V Spitfire in the stash I seriously need to bulk out my Merlin Spitfire collection as I only have a Mk Xii and 24 built.  I am also in the middle of building the Airfix Fr 47 Seafire and looking to add a Special Hobby Mk 3 to the collection soon.  I applaud you for carrying on with you ICM Mk XVI as I've tried to build both the ICM and the Revell rebox and both ended up binned, to many fit issues and the quality of the plastic was dire, real shame as it's one of my favourite mk's of Spit.  I'll have to acquire an Eduard kit for the collection!

Hello Blitz,

The Eduard one is pristine !

I did the Mk VIII and Mk IX plus another Mk IX in the making !

I'm now used to the tricks of the ICM Spits, Mk VII and Mk XVI and another Mk IX in the making too.

But I was in need to have more naval aircrafts

The 2 Mk XVII are on their way too... On a Special for BM comparative build.

Thanks for the kind words !

sincerely.

Hello John,

I must say, La ferté WAS the place to be in the 90' must say at the beginning of the '90s...

Then came a huge success, politics, préfets and so on came up to show their faces...

Meaning more and more cops, CRS and so on...

I did La Ferté for years, having a tent behind the hangars, it was a great meeting with friends from all around old Europe...

Aaaaand yes a great sharing of booze too, we were not politically correct at all...

Now almost everything is forbidden... The way I did'nt get up there for years...

This is now a jet set event, There is really a lot of fine Aircraft to see but if I have to choose one... I'll favor Duxford whitout any hestation !

Sincerely.
