  1. I vote yellow as well, if that's light blue in with it then It's pretty much the home and away colours of Cambridge United so please do that one! M
  2. An excellent counterpoint to the high tech wonder of 3D printing and just the kind of variety I'd hope that a fully voted Anything but Injection GB would bring. My only worry is that you're getting this built quicker than I do a conventional kit, but there's lots of reasons to worry about my model making and not just the knives and chemicals involved!!
  3. Having a South African daughter-in-law its no surprise that this is my favourite Gresley! Masterpiece
  4. Am I the only person pondering a What If build at the moment? I bet I'm not!!
  5. This is beyond bonkers, I'm tempted to say that it'll never fly! Can I suggest that inventing the universe and making the apple pie might be easier
  6. a build with a 'commercial confidentiality' clause- intriguing. But maybe something that special should be held back, ready for next year's real GB? Not that I'd ever want to discourage extravagance.
  7. Enzio's idea was that it was a way of promoting GB's to give them a better chance in the 2021 poll- the election campaign has started already!! Being optimistic, it's worth holding a plum build back for the real GB next year.
  8. It would be silly (not that that usually stops me) to start anything with a house move coming in March. But with the whole year ahead, I'll be along later with something in cardboard with a Dutch theme. Undecided between Schipol airport terminal (the original Art Deco one) or a historic lighthouse. any preferences oh learned ones?
  9. This looks brilliant in sooo many ways!
  10. Yep, KLM it is, a very tidy (I'm getting ready for Gavin & Stacey) livery on the F-DCAL sheet
  11. Back from my travels and time to knuckle down with a sizeable chunk of the GB schedule already behind me! As has been flagged up, one of the problems with this kit is the lack of nose bay detail or even locating lugs for the u/c. I can live without the lack of detail (yep I'm a bodger), but I don't want the nose gear collapsing. There are no doubt more elegant ways of doing this, but I've gone for this Tacked in place for this photo, what I've done is used plastastrut to build up the two ridges on the foot of the cockpit floor and cut notches out of the base of the u/c moulding; this should give a decent surface area for the cement. The bracing arm will then go in front and, well I suppose, brace it. splash of paint and hopefully button up the fuselage and make progress
  12. One of my flaws is, I can't just leave it; this would be nearly finished but I've decided the fit of the canopy is way to bad, even allowing for the toy-like nature of the mouldings so I've taken a file to all that area to smooth it out. Also decided that the finish is way too clean and flat, even for a preserved plane- I should have done some pre-shading but even I've got a modicum of sense and I'm not going to strip all the paint off and redo it.
  13. Picking up the plot on this though not much too look at so far. Aside from the #3 nacelle going wrong, I don't know why it stalled in the first place. I wasn't too impressed with the Kits-World decals until I played around with the Minicraft supplied ones and now I think they're the bees-knees!
  14. To balance the vac-form, I'll take it old school with a cardboard lighthouse that I picked up in Holland (it's amazing what you can pick up over there!!!). The great thing about the They also serve build, is I can then slide straight into the tail end of KUTA 2020 on the 31 Dec and I've made very little progress
  15. Oh come on, a sneak elephant joke attack? Its the end of civilisation!! How does and elephant hide in custard? It paints it's feet yellow and floats upside down Oh, that's impossible, don't be ridiculous Impossible? Then tell me how many elephants have you ever seen in custard? Clearly it works!
