    A-10 Thunderbolt II

    Thanks Håkan. The gun might be better displayed on it's own but I think I'll put it in the aircraft. Thanks very much Frank.

    Update time. Some landing gear work... 30mm assembled and primed..... Cockpit.... I havent gone overboard with the cockpit as the canopy will be closed.
  3. That looks great Giorgio. It won't take much to tidy up the areas where it's required.

    Thanks Håkan. It looks really obvious now but it took awhile for my head to work it out.

    A test fit of the landing gear before taking them back out to paint.

    A little tip for anyone building this kit. When assembling the main landing gear you need to use 2 x part no. 16 for each one as it only shows it once in the instructions. It seems pretty obvious now but at the time I was scratching my head for a few minutes.Even though you can see part of one peeping out it didn't register until I had looked at photos of the real thing.

    I must admit it's very tempting but I'm going to build this as is with just a change of decals. I appreciate the suggestion though and I've bookmarked the site for future reference.

    Excellent. I've just put a coat of primer on the cockpit interior and will start work on it with the brushes tomorrow.

    Plastic has been cut! We're up and running.
  11. Beautiful. Only quality work stands up to close up's like that.

    Montrose bridge.

    On a similar theme on the way out to lunch today we passed the site of where Masham, North Yorkshire, was bombed in 1941. Details here, http://www.yorkshire-aircraft.co.uk/aircraft/yorkshire/york41/a1al.html My Grandparents lived just beyond the brewery in the background of the memorial photo.

    That's interesting and a little known story that shouldn't be forgotten. I was was going to give your post just a "like" but given the tragic circumstances I didn't think it appropriate.

    That sounds like a very good plan.
