  1. Very nice work mate, an excellent result Cheers, Stew
  2. A beautiful collection Bill p.s. 1/32 kits count double for a 1/72 builder Cheers, Stew
  3. I always like to keep an eye on your work Will, I'm not into Games Workshop stuff but the quality of your painting is always an inspiration Cheers, Stew
  4. I think in weight of plastic you've probably actually out-performed most of us That B-36 is an impressive beast but the Harrier is my personal favourite Cheers, Stew
  5. All lovely builds there mate, the Duck is indeed lovely but the F3F is my favourite - a beautiful rendition of a not-terribly-attractive aircraft Cheers, Stew
  6. Thank you gentlemen I've been making some progress, but before we get to that, here's the assembled main wing: Now attention shifts (momentarily) back to the fuselage, with the installation of the tail-wheel retraction gear: ... then the interior is added to the starboard fuselage half: The next part struck me as somewhat odd, instead of joining the two fuselage halves together, the instructions advise fitting the starboard fuselage half to the upper wing - as I say this struck me as a funny way of going about things but I assumed there is a reason for this sequence of events and went with the instructions: I believe it might be done in this order so that you can see where the underfloor cockpit supports fit in the upper wing. Once this had been given a while for the glue to cure, the port fuselage half was added: This fit very well. Also shown on the picture are the separate wing-root fillets. The final section of this particular part involves fitting the underside of the rear fuselage, which has another oxygen/compressed air bottle (the fifth and final one included in the kit) and what looks like a car battery and that's presumably what it is - a battery anyway, not a car battery: That part has now been fitted and some Citadel Liquid Green Stuff painted into the various join lines, as much for my own sense of security as a belief that some of the joins may manifest themselves as small gaps rather than panel-line joins. I haven't photographed it yet, but will do before I go on to the next stage of adding the tailcone, rudder and horizontal stabilisers... Cheers, Stew
  7. Another victim of the Pixnor tweezer sets epidemic here. Curse you @John Laidlaw! But thanks Cheers, Stew
  8. Maybe just one, but a lovely one Cheers, Stew
  9. Nice work mate, My guess - and it is just that but there's no harm in testing it with a dry-fit - is that the recessess in the sides of D2 fit between the sloping back end of parts E20 and E28 and the unnumbered part that looks like a landmine goes on top of them and butts against the back end of D2, but that for some reason this is not shown on the completed parts drawing... does that make sense? I can see it in my mind, but then I see a lot of things in there... Cheers, Stew
  10. Good start Edward, that seat pan looks just about right to fit your seat-pack parachute into Regarding the flaps, it looks like it will be okay as long as B6 has the tongues that fit into the slots in the rear of the wing as shown in the instructions; if not then I suppose it will just be a case of sticking it where it fits best... Cheers, Stew
  11. A very moving introduction Edward, I know this has been a long time waiting amongst your build plans, I hope the Dora Wings Lysander will prove the right vehicle for it Cheers, Stew
  12. I'm experiencing the same issue... Cheers, Stew
