  2. Thanks for the kind words folks! I need a tractor tug and towing bar for the aircraft if anyone can point me in the right direction? Dan
  3. No they are fine, Ive had it running for a few hours and no issues.
  4. Hi all, Welcome to my hangar build. I noticed a build of this on this forum and decided to give one a go myself, given that I have space to accommodate it. The hangar is from GPM and is available in a few scales. The kit is laser cut cardboard. Firstly, here are the parts sheets: We then start cutting out the parts, starting with the roof.

  12. Lol i never had the knack to start with. Just using brushes and far too thick paint and slapping it all over the model. So first time for everything really Thanks
  13. Im sorry to burden you all with yet another PR XIX as I know the spit builds get old fast. This is my first 'proper' attempt at a kit since childhood and is my first time using an airbrush. The kit seemed to go together well with some filling required. Made a few mistakes but it all adds to the experience.
