  1. Tremendous! One of the best models I've ever seen!
  2. Outstanding! A Mosquito is next for me and having just read your WIP and seen your end result here it's bookmarked for reference.

    Scratch Built Flying Scotsman

    Seeing stuff like this always makes me think about just what exactly it is I'm trying to accomplish in the world of model making...... Put another way, I'm playing for my local boozer on a Sunday and this man is Messi!! Truly inspirational Frank! Now let's see some more snaps.
  4. Frank, send me your address via a PM and I'll send you a nice bundle. You'd probably shed a small tear if you knew how much of this wood goes in our wood burner! I think the largest size is 90mm square. Certainly I have three 800mm lengths of that under my desk as supports. It's from a mate that works at a bespoke kitchen makers, (they did Cheryl Cole's mums not long back for 60k+!!) only use it myself to make nice bases with, comes up a treat under a few coats of shellac Sticking bits of plastic together is one thing... This is something else entirely and I'd be dreaming if I thought I could do it! Nice to see though. I look forward to seeing your Flying Scotsman. Dan
  5. Magnificent! Beautiful models to look at. I could probably get you some chunky pieces of american black walnut if you want? or Oak? Might be useful for your next project being hardwoods? PM me if interested

    Here, something I forgot to mention - http://www.battle-of-britain-75.co.uk/?utm_source=Webshop&utm_medium=Homepage&utm_campaign=92008950 Claim your free BoB 75th Anniversary commemorative medal. I have mine and it's a lovely piece. Just pay postage of £2.50 or slightly more if you want a nice presentation folder and booklet.

    Congratulations to all who finished! I did finish my own entries too but have spent the last month sat on the naughty step (read banned!)..... Teach me for opening my big mouth! One clear winner for me but have voted for loads to make the cut

    Info needed on Biggin Hill July 1940

    Have a look on Google Earth. There's a function that allows you to look back in time at pieced together photo reconnaissance. Here's a couple screens off what looks to be 4 parked Hurricanes. Biggin Hill 1940
  9. Thanks chaps. Progress has slowed a bit over the last few days... Both my 1/48 and 1/72 models are near to being finished. It's just the attachment of small parts and weathering that they need to finish. Hopefully I'll get that done over the coming weekend Mottlemaster, no plans now for any of that now, tbh I've really not done the best of jobs with them so my aim now is to just get them done with and move onto something new. I'm treating this as a trial run for something more grand in the near future.
  10. As good a reason as any! I'm no rivet counter by a long stretch bet might you perhaps add a pilot so it looks as though he's checking his controls? Or ground crew having a tinker??
  11. Looking good. Why the positioning of the ailerons like that? Are they to be in-flight?
  12. Both 72nd models now painted and Kleared for decals
  13. Phenomenal workmanship!! You make it look so easy... I can only imagine the skill and patience required for such modifications........ I'll give myself another 20 years to reach this level
