  1. Smart work, Fuad... always impressive. Well done... ;-)
  2. Beautiful... two clean, sharp looking finishes. Very well done, especially given the small scale of the kits... ;-)
  3. Very nice work... well done. Regards, Paul
  4. Lovely work which has produced a great end result. I've got one of these kits as well and think it's rather a good model. All your hard work has turned out good... well done. Regards, Paul
  5. Great rendition of this aircraft and wonderful work on the colour scheme... well done.
  6. Lovely work, Luiz... a very nicely finished Do17Z indeed...
  7. Very smart, indeed bijoux, if I may say so... .
  8. PLC/tonyot... Thanks for your comments. I'm pleased you both like the finished result. I am as well, despite the slight inaccuracy. It now sits in a place of prominence alongside other BoB participants in my collection... .
  9. Gents, can I just draw you attention to the insert at the top of this thread, namely : NB: 24/02/19 - it has come to my attention today of photographic proof confirming this aircraft did NOT carry white cowlings; this was unknown to me at the time of working on the model, so I would prefer to set the record straight for the purpose of historical accuracy. My apologies to all.
  10. Hi, guys... thanks very much for your comments, which I really appreciate. Malcolm, the leading edge slats are the kit items, cut from the wing. The upper section was reasonably easy to remove although the underside section is very thin and narrow, so much more difficult to cut away. Given the thinness of that piece, it ends up slightly curved after detaching it, so has to be carefully and slowly glued, in steps, back to the upper section, thus helping to bring it back into line. A little bit of tidying up on the leading edge and sculpting of the plastic at either end to achieve the correct shape, and it's done. I used a mini-drill for the sculpting, with a thin sanding attachment... I imagine good result can be achieved with a sharp knife, but watch your fingers, as it's a rather fiddly job, especially at the outer, narrower end of the slat! Regards, Paul
  11. Hi... this is my recently completed Bf110C from Dragon, in 1/32 scale. A good kit to build with nice detail throughout. Only additions were the exhaust pipes. The finished model shows a Bf110C-4 from 7./ZG26 during the Battle of Britain, damaged on 25/09/1940 while on bomber escort duties but managed to regain the French coast before executing a belly-landing. I hope you like these photos. The full build can be seen here. NB: 24/02/19 - it has come to my attention today of photographic proof confirming this aircraft did NOT carry white cowlings; this was unknown to me at the time of working on the model, so I would prefer to set the record straight for the purpose of historical accuracy. My apologies to all. Thanks for looking in. Regards, Paul
  12. Guys... What can I say? Your comments are more than I expected and very much appreciated. You've all been very positive with your remarks; a previous effort many years ago with an earlier offering of this kit ended in ignominous defeat, so I will take your expressions of approval as confirmation of my being older and wiser in my skills and problem solving. You have genuinely - and very pleasantly - taken me aback with your kind words. Thank you... ;-) Regards, Paul
  13. Hi, gents... Many thanks for your much-appreciated comments. I am happy to report that I have found a space to house this model, although I had to re-arrange the others to accommodate it! Regards, Paul
