  1. Been away for a bit, glad you didn’t finish before I get back to it! that paint work is looking brilliant, and it looks like another leap forward is on the cards with all the little bits prepped. Rob
  2. Just catching up cookie, it’s gutting when things like that happen! Really sorry you have had such a set back as was coming together so well!! Rob
  3. Absolutely stunning work Cookie, you have raised the bar again with your paint work Rob
  4. You have a real talent for paint, love this aircraft and what your doing here! Rob
  5. Fine work with the masking by the looks of it so far, I’m sure you will nail it! Looking forward to the true metal! Rob
  6. 8th airforce heritage gallery group on Facebook. Jim has put a number of pics on there from the visit and models. Hope that helps! Rob
  7. I can’t judge you on not being finished on time! You have me very worried about the masking tape on my B17 now, and my Beaufort that’s been on for ages! hope you all had a great day, saw some pics of Facebook and the models look amazing. Sorry again all I couldn’t make it… will have to organise my own pilgrimage. Rob
  8. I love a malta spit, and these are fantastic, looking forward to the third one, bucks is a favourite of mine. Rob
  9. That stang is a beaut cookie, and the hurricane is shaping up the same! Great work! and have fun in SA, even if it’s work! Rob
  10. Happy birthday Ced, sounds like you had fun! the engines do look a faff! You appear to have them under control though. Coming along nicely! Rob
  11. Good to hear your mum is on the mend, hope she’s ok! the p51 is looking superb, you are nailing it as ever. good to see you back at it. Rob
  12. Looks very cool, I do love a b25! nice work getting that undercarriage sorted, can’t have been an easy bit of work! Rob
  13. Well this feels better, as you can see you have been missed! welcome back, look forward to seeing any progress you feel like doing. Rob
  14. That’s incredibly kind of you, my scratch building needs some work, but I feel it’s a start and something I can improve on Cheers Ced! Thanks as always G! so final layer down and it was left to cure then given a polish. Below pictures are of one wing polished and the other not to see the difference. and then the whole thing got a good going over. All I need to do now is add the medium green and de-iceing boots and engine cowls and should be good for decals and weathering! B24 is still progressing, these little plastic bits are time consuming! but they are done and painting begins. And the gun mounts were added to the floor. getting there! cheers for the support and kind words all. Rob
