Great progress, Simon! Shame about the air scoop and the seats but you'll surely sort those out.

 

Cheers

Those pins marks are a pain Simon, good work sorting them out :)

I just grabbed my Mk III to check for the IP film and I see there's a decal for the instruments instead that goes behind the PE - easier than film I guess and saves all the painting / sticking with gloss stuff but harder to line up? I guess you need to paint the PE first too. Interesting...

The kit comes with decals options for either the "Normal or PE" IP.

Once I get some painting done I will use the PE one.

If it goes tits up I still have the standard kit decal to fall back on.

As I am no longer a PE virgin, I attack the dolly with it`s parts, all 2 of them.

 

Dolly 5

 

First bit cut a lightly curved  (Well Bent anyhow.)

 

Dolly 6

 

With the other one too.

 

Dolly 7

 

Let those set now, and just a pair of braces to add plus the wheels.

 

Still not sure on those seats though.

 

All comments welcome.

Would Krystal Klear not have made a new window that size? That's what I do in those situations. 

What I was going to say. I've used it many time, including MY Italeri Sunderland!

Thanks folks, the build progresses.

 

Port holes again, I decided to use C/A to fix the clear bits in.

 

Port holes 11

 

And from the out side.

 

Port holes 12

 

There are 2 more to do on this side but I had an accident and have to clean them up first.

 

Oh well the hazards of port holes .:rage:

 

All comments welcome.

Well folks, bit the bullet and fitted the rest of them.

 

Starboard side ready for priming inside.

 

Port holes 14

 

Port side still needs 2 more to be fitted.

 

Port holes 15

 

Once they are done I can leave that side to dry .

 

Not much else to do in the way of prep work so it looks like the spray booth will be action when I get out of hospital.

 

All comments welcome.

The rudder bars fitted

 

COCK 1

 

And I remembered to sort out those wing lights.

I had punched some disc`s of plastic out earlier.

I cut these in half and fixed in place with Revell Precision glue.

All comments welcome.

There's a decent amount of detail in that kit Simon but damn are there a lot of port holes. 

 

This is coming together in a very fetching manner altogether.

Nice work on your Sunderland, Simon! I've been doing a bit of building on mine (got the wings glued together!), but I've got so many irons in the fire right now it's hard to find time for it (I'm also working on about six or so Yak fighters simultaneously). Still, watching your build may be the impetus I need to do some more work on mine. I'll remember that trick on cleaning up the wing lights area. With regards to the port holes I'll go the Testors Clear Parts Cement route as I don't think my brittle nerves are up to glueing all those little clear parts in.  

 

Regards,

 

Jason

Cheers Jason, those port holes are OK once you have a good plan.

 

Thanks for the comments folks, and good wishes, there are appreciated very much.

 

That mishap air scoop, well I found the missing bit and was able to fix it into place.

Let that set over night  as well.

 

That bow decking, Attacked it with a drill, 0.8 mm to be exact.

A gentle rub with some micro mesh will finish that off.

 

I am going to leave things for now and relax.
