    I'd be on for this: Hasegawa Mk.I/III as a DC-10 with drones. Alan

    North American Aviation - just 5 to go

    I was looking at my unbuilt Sharkit/Muroc models X-10 last night and wondering if there might ever be a North American GB...and here you are! So please include me in. Alan

    'Evening. I'd like to add this Global Hawk. I think it is less than 25% done. I've cleaned up various bits and stuck the fuselage and wing halves together and I've mounted various bits on bits of sprue to paint them. I hope that's OK. Please let me know. Alan.
  4. Evening. Having missed the Blitzbuild last weekend, and having a bit of time-off coming up, I'd like to enter this as a quickish build: by my very slow standards anyway. Here is the gift set and Freightdog Mustang IV conversion set: I am planning to do this as KH655 QV-P of 19 Sqn RAF in 1945 at Peterhead, the first option on the Xtradecal RAF Mustangs sheet. I had thought to use the Freightdog bits but according to the Xtradecal notes this was a IV and not a IVa and so it should have the cuffed propeller, I think. According to the Freightdog notes, not all IVs had the cowling louvres. I can't find any picture of this Mustang and so it seems more sensible to do this OOTB and keep the freightdog bits for later. Maybe for a "Dooleybird". Alan

    Mike, Thanks. My colleague Geoff Milnes does the great majority of the paperwork. However, the plan was to get the invites out next month, September. Alan

    Excellently marvellous Enzo! I had meant as-well-as, and not instead-of, but very good. I suppose you'd better count me in too. What to build? Alan

    Blitzbuild 2018 Chat

    I'm on holiday for this years Blitz and I'm as sick as the proverbial parrot. I haven't finished anything since last year's blitzbuild. I have enjoyed watching this year's from afar. I love the Cutlass. Steve, I feel your varnish-related pain. And so on. I am often on holiday at this time of year and I'm sure I'm not alone. Would anyone be interested in a UK Spring bank holiday Blitzbuild in the future? Alan

    The Specialist GB - 16Mar - 7Jul

    This is so wide as to be impossible not to like. Maybe a drone (recon) or F-2A or beaufighter (anti-ship) or ki-15 (recon)…. So, please put me down for this. Alan
  9. Like David, I too have not done very well with group builds...to put it mildly. But I'm still game. Please put me down for one, Alan

    I've bought a couple of motorbike kits in he last couple of years to sublimate the mid-life need to buy an actual bike. Please put me down for one Kawasaki Ninja. Alan

    Reaper Drone

    Curses! I really want to get this done on time and find.....I don't have the right paint! Looking in that model-room I couldn't have conceived that there could be any shade of grey that I don't have! I've got a day off this week and had hoped to get well ahead then. New paint ordered on-line... We'll see, Alan
  12. Please put me down for this. RQ-3? U-2? P-80? Alan
  13. Col, Definitely up for this. ...late mark spitfire...vampire... You'll have to watch the title, I think, because, I think, the Warsaw pact was signed in 1955. I would prefer 1945-50 to be separate because there is so much great stuff there, but maybe its better to have one bigger do like this with a better chance in the vote. Alan

    Reaper Drone

    Thanks for looking, Dave. I've got the splitter plate in and am pretty happy with it: The NACA scoop is OK. Needs a few more blobs of Mr.Surfacer to smooth it out. Might actually finish this one! Alan
