  1. I was wondering about this build the other day too. This was being built the same time I was building XM607. I finished mine ages ago.
  2. About time we got a new tool Invader
  3. I asked them today. They said hopefully between Feb and summer 2019. Probably closer to summer though.

    What does everyone know about Very Fire Technology as a company? Never heard of them but their upcoming BB-67 USS Montana looks interesting. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1160443-very-fire-technology-vf350008-uss-montana-bb-67-battleship-1-350

    I have heard others mention it and how they spent ages trying to figure it out. Filing bits down to get it to fit. Thankfully they corrected the mistake in the Mk.II kit. It would be nice if they could place a correction sheet in the Mk.V boxes from when they were aware of the issue. Not sure if that has ever happened.

    On the Mk.V the instructions are incorrect with the numbering for the most forward parts of the multi part bay walls. Just swap parts H21 & H33 over.

    The Tempest engine looks great. It's on my like of things to check out at Telford.

    Very much looking forward to the Sunderland. Any clues to when it will be released?

    Great job. My one is very close to the top of the build pile. Very tempted to grab the CMK resin engine at Telford. It's not cheap though. How much can you see through the front of the cowling?

    Anyone see my TPS report?

    I thought this was a reference to the film Office Space.

    Cool. Not seen one of these built for a while.

    I find sprue goo is great for some situations, filling small open seem gaps for one. Sink areas it sucks. Like you say it's great to scribe over. I have found myself resorting back to perfect plastic putty and squadron green as my go to fillers of choice these days.
