  1. Nice work on the rings, the whole build is looking great and your paint work is really on point. your very close to having this in the gallery! Rob
  2. This is a very cool project Tony, fascinating research into it to boot. Also you have had your weatabix as usual and are cracking on a pace! Rob
  3. That is a very fine shade of blue you have there, I will have to remember it as I have far too many Malta aircraft to build. glad you getting an empty house for 10 days, that’s what dreams are made of. Rob
  4. Great added details as ever Bill, it’s really coming along. Ever the more impressive with everything you have on health wise! Wish you a continued good recovery, recovering for these big issues is on par with your modelling so I have every faith you will nail this one two. Christ knows how you do it (modelling and putting up with the pain) hat is well a truly off to you. Rob
  5. Again many thanks, means a lot! still working on the interior… some ribbing and fettling. bit wonky and needs trimming but it’s a start! And it’s just for some detail not supposed to be accurate. As it’s over sized. some resin sanding to get this sitting flatter. unfortunately that’s it… this week has been a nightmare, I’ve been having to sort out a lot at work, sub station that feeds my store electricity was on fire and has been cutting out for the last two days which has been cutting the power the everyone. I’ve been trying to keep 23,000 sq ft of fridges cold without electricity is not fun! any how enjoy the weather! Rob
  6. min case you needed any Bristol motivation, here’s some beaufighter’s…. Just stunning, both in its colourisation and just as an image. Take a moment to imagine yourself watching this separated from it by some plastic….wow. it’s not mine it’s rarity colour and will remove if needed, was taken from a public post on Facebook. cheers all
  7. Hello Ced! that’s one hell of an update! Sounds like life has been busy but pretty fruitful. Which is good to hear. hope your enjoying the lovely weather! none of this ‘it’s far too hot’ from you lot, it’s only 30, spare a thought for the chaps in Africa in 1942… they hat heat and Panzers to deal with! I jest, It is flipping hot, but still good. looking forward to more update either build or life related. Rob
  8. This is shaping up beautifully adrian! Very nice additions as I’ve come to expect for you, careful you don’t Make a name for yourself. Rob
  9. That looks really smooth paint work. Love it’s little launch pad… can you tell I’m a middle expert? Rob
  10. Love the detail on those little wicker seats. This tiny gem is really taking shape Ian, great work. Rob
  11. Are those instructions from the original aircraft!? Great choice, will look forward to seeing you work you magic Rob
  12. That’s a beautiful result on that silver finish and weathering. Rob
  13. This is looking good, the ribbing on the internals definitely puts my wonky work to shame on my B17. Really bringing this flat plastic to life. Rob
  14. That’s looking something special, really like the variation you got on the green! It’s a nice shade too. Rob
  15. Of course your building you own IP, in fact I’m disappointed you haven’t done it sooner . Cunning and fine work G, keep it up mate. Rob
  16. That’s a lovely paint job, really like it with the night underside. That mixed slate grey looks the business, you have a good eye! Rob
  17. You made that look easy Heather, great finish and work. A fantastic 3rd addition to the gallery! Rob
  18. Yeah I’ll allow it, the design was Bristol that was adapted by them so pretty much a Bristol aircraft in my opinion
  19. Cheers for the heads up and off chaps, I have some spare fish so hopefully will be ok! progress has continued and it’s been mainly detail painting of the interior. Weathering has been applied and little seatbelts for the pilot. Sand has been liberally applied in this process as for anyone who has been to the island will know it’s all pretty much yellow stone and sand! Beautiful place though. I painted the below then it pinged off the tweezers! 10 points if you find it It’s safely glued in now. After all that the wings went on, and the are a VERY satisfying fit. seems etc will need a good tidy now! cheers all! Rob
  20. Great work John and excellent rigging. Felt like a blink and you miss it build. Really fantastic finish. Rob
  21. You burnt through that one Tony, great work! Love the scheme and love the ordnance. Rob
  22. Looks a challenge! I can empathise completely with a busy work life and trying to carve time for yourself. It feels good to build and take you mind of the work and feel you have achieved something. Just post as and when you can, biggest thing is making a bit of time for the hobby and getting out of work. still need to post my progress from 3 days ago! Rob
  23. The beaufighter is definitely a big tug of an aircraft! Shame the mozzie gets so much of the multi role glory really as there’s so much to love about this beast! great choice and nice aftermarket, should be a great build. Rob
