Hi, Just about to start my Sunderland Mk i after finishing a Stirling Mk IV. any cahnce you could update on your Sunderland build?
Hi Simon. Thanks for the reply. Hope it's soon out of the hangar.
I'm trawling around for background info which really paid off with the Stirling.
Just as a bit of background. I built the Horsa glider to go with the Stirling and was fed up on the Stirling with fuselage windows dropping out and having to mask them. So with the Horsa I used Kistal Klear after assembly of the fuse and wings but before painting. When painting and final matt clear top coat completed I cut out the windows and re-did them with the Klear - job done.

Right, after a quick think I will say that the ailerons have fine mounting points and the fit is not that great, also the port inner exhaust enters the wing! The kit part looks horrid, you will be better off making the semi-circle it fits into, into a circle and scratch the pipe in.
Also I would recommend a masking sheet(s) for her, there`s a lot of transparencies to cover LOL.
One thing I was told, that if they brought her ashore, the fuel tanks and mines were removed before beaching (to save weight (she is big)).
A postal workers strike, most likely lasting at least two weeks, began today and truly messes things up for Finnish modellers. I have a lot of stuff on its way but don´t know when I´ll get in this case...
Having believed I was indestructible I've now accepted I'm not. My right arm has been coming and going due to an impacted nerve in my shoulder. At the last appointment it was decided that it was ready to be operated on. Going in Tuesday in and out the same day should have some function within a few days!
Best (pre)Christmas present ever!
I have the 1/96 scale drawing of the Victoria IV and V done by A. Grainger in Aircraft Illustrated in January 1970. His drawings are noted for their care and accuracy. It has fuselage plan, profile and two cross-sections, and plan of one wing half, as well as a few other details. The wings and tail unit are basically Virginia items and I also have his 1/96 scale drawings of the Virginia Mk. X.
If these drawing are of interest to you, PM me with your email and I will scan them and send to you. I do not want to put the drawings on Britmodeller as I am not sure of the copyright of them.

Good afternoon Enzo
I have a question about the Gbs that have failed to get enough members to participate in the vote .
Do I have to open a new thread and redo a list to vote next year? Or is it okay to keep the thread I had opened for this year's vote and only change the name and update the title with the year changed ?
No modelling for a while as the basement is now flooded, sad times
