  1. Just ordered a 1/48 P-51D from Eduard for the STGB next month ( I know, I’ll never finish it in time ), it’s about time I started something that isn’t Spitfire shaped.
  2. Long time? That’s the blink of an eye in the timescale of my builds. Splendid engine. John
  3. I think the steely eyed look makes the first one more appropriate.
  4. and turkey necks. Mephistopheles
  5. Lovely detail in the wheelwells. John PS ran out of post-it notes did you?
  6. I trust there will be some group photos ( with labels ) at some point in the future. John
  7. On Saturday it didn’t rain and we had the heating on for a while ( boiler in my man cave ) so the humidity reduced enough for me to spray the yellow stripes. Yesterday I removed the masking, safe in the knowledge that I had applied a coat of Kleer to protect the roundels I ripped off the tape, and with it a portion of the starboard roundel ahead of the wing walk line ! I will not post any more photos until I have replaced the damaged roundel, replaced the undercarriage leg and attached the cannon barrel fairings. On the positive side, I have found a nicely ‘ blown ‘ sliding canopy to replace the kit item. John
  8. Thanks Chris, I think it’s going to work, trouble is I’m now going to have to do something with the side panels on ‘434s windscreen. Cheers John
  9. You’re up early Ced, and you’ve got a long day ahead of you.
  10. That cockpit looks good. I hope the company proves reinvigorating for Jack. John
  11. I don’t think that John Adams ( Aeroclub ) is producing anything now, more’s the pity. I got my fuselage after a request on BM, so you might try that. As for the ‘ teardrop ‘ bulges, I agree with Mike that they were a post war modification, but my intention is to show ‘434 after the rebuild/repaint in the ‘90s, not as original, hence the out of proportion roundels.
