    Hi Gents, Apologies for my absence. Between the ongoing building work at home and plain old work, I've just had no time to enjoy the better things. Hoping to get moving on this again in a couple of weeks if all goes to plan. Cheers Nigel

    Just need to be careful how I take the final photos. Once it’s hanging from my nephew’s ceiling, it won’t be seen

    Hi Rich, Had a look at the canopy tonight and the Klear has almost emphasised the crack. Hey ho, que sera Thanks Threadbear. Not sure if I'm honest but it's not a bad kit either way

    As planned, I've managed to wrap the cockpit When prepping the canopy, I noticed a crack in the top I'm hoping the 'Klear' treatment does the trick Time will tell

    Here's the 'office'. Hope to wrap it in the fuselage this evening

    Thanks for the welcome Rich I've been itching to get this underway as I was partly through a 1/48 version last year when disaster struck with the decals and I had to abandon the project. However, I'm already wondering whether I should have gone for the Academy kit with its single piece fuselage but I'll crack on and see where the Revell kit leads

    I-16 Type 10 (Eduard 1:48)

    Thanks Stix - House going OK but will take longer than originally planned I'm sure I'll find a reason to build the I-16 soon enough

    As this was a 'between builds, build', with the house-build work still soaking up a lot of my time and a desire to start my Phantom, I'm going to bow out of this GB. Good luck to everyone involved. There are some fine builds in progress and the gallery is starting to fill nicely Cheers Nigel
  9. Apologies if this has already been asked but is there a banner for this GB?

    JGSDF TYPE 10 TANK - Tamiya 1/48

    Hi Stix, This is (as usual) rather wonderful. The 'real' skirts and that uniform are particularly impressive. Cracking job!!
  11. Very nice Stix Those 'skirts' look like they are actually flexible

    Right, now that the F1 is over, here's the usual sprue pics along with one where I've removed the parts for the first few stages
  13. I now have my 'den' back so I thought I'd kick this one off. I still need to spend a lot of time with building work on the house but I'm hoping to squeeze in some hours on this wherever possible.
