  1. Thanks for the invite. I don't get on the forum much these days unfortunately. Mostly down to no pc to upload pictures from. For this reason I won't be entering but I'll defiantly swing by to offer moral support. The last less than a tenner GB that I ran was a great success. In fact it was one of the largest attended group builds in forum history up till that point.
  2. Wow. Just spent the last 10 mins catching up on this. Stunning build.
  3. This is what I plan to do with mine when I get round to it. Did you get two 'E' sprues in the kit? Quite a few left the factory with only one. Luckily my supplier informed me and sourced replacements. I'll be watching this.
  4. Great work on this so far. I'm glad you find my build of some use. I don't get on the forums much these days so only just stumbled across your build. I'll follow on from now. Cheers Mark
  5. Superb job on this. I'm building the same kit in LH markings also. I'm just doing the last few bits to it. Hopefully have it on the forum in the next few weeks.
  6. I've always fancied building one of these. Watching with interest.
  7. 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.
  8. I asked them today. They said hopefully between Feb and summer 2019. Probably closer to summer though.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. The Tempest engine looks great. It's on my like of things to check out at Telford.
  13. Very much looking forward to the Sunderland. Any clues to when it will be released?
  14. 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?
  15. I thought this was a reference to the film Office Space.
  16. Cool. Not seen one of these built for a while.
  17. 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.
  18. Oh. Instrument panel. Just worked it out.
