  1. Hi Ray, I just consulted, There's no slat inboard of the fence. I've not found a decent photo showing how close the fence is to those access holes. But there is a shot showing the fence aligning almost perfectly with the first flap actuator. Which co-incides with how I build my Airfix VC10. With the fence positioned at the end of the slat. Oh, and in the inteests of recycling, I made the fences from a coffee cup lid. Didn't discard that one.
  2. That is exactly what I did, with this Jetstream T3 in 2007, and avoiding those 4 blade props. The only aftermarket being the decals.
  3. This time I assembled the undercarriage properly. Thanks 825. and wrapped the fuselage around it, and fitted the engine. followed by the wings.
  4. Initial office decor. Cockpit assembly. And with 825's alert ringing in my ears, the undercarriage parts.
  5. I learned the lesson of the undercarriage -the hard way during my previous build. Being careful, preparation is key, taking my time - and following the instructions.
  6. Saw this on yesterday's bike ride, at Staverton. This did a hot refuel at Staverton today. And the Queen's Flight visited.
  7. About to start working on this one, now the Tornados are completed. Here are the parts. I'm sure I'm not the first to do this, but last night I compared the instructions with the Wildcat. It was as I'd thought, only difference being the engine and cowling. This time I'm forewarned of the undercarriage.
  8. I've got a photo of mine with those panels. This pic of WK111 says YES.
  9. Nice one - really like the T17 version. I built the Mikro Mir Canberra in February, and had forgotten some of the challenges it throws out. I'd not seen that wire in the wheels trick, does that raise the wheels off the ground? I accomplished the same effect with a prop at the rear of the bomb-bay. Once again, great result.
  10. I know you're going to ask, so here are both Airfix Tornados together. And showing the difference in length at the back. See that difference between the back of the airbrakes and the reverser buckets. Seperate parts on the GR, moulded with the fuselage on this kit.
  11. I know you're going to ask, so here are both my Revell Tornado F3s.
  12. Airfix 1/72 Tornado F3, with Club Set decals for 65Sqdn/OCU.
  13. Declaring completion, all the last little jobs finished. And armed to the teeth
  14. Revell 1/72 Tornado F3 - with Airfix Club decals for 111 Squadron, 25 Years of Tornado F3.
  15. Declaring completion. All those final details done. and armed to the teeth.
