    B17E Old Maid ser 41-2409

    A couple of sanding sessions later I have put some of the glazing in. Some further sanding need on the under side and the tail gunner position will need work and then onto wings! IMGA0521 by neil Connor, on Flickr I knocked the bomb sight off when fitting the glazing and will need to refit before the nose glass goes on IMGA0520 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0522 by neil Connor, on Flickr Just one more week at work before the Christmas break starts so I should be able to get alot done then as the end date is creeping closer.

    I would have liked to try the Airfix one but as this one was a present I couldn't say no. Does the Airfix kit have the wing cooler intakes?

    So the fuselage is together... just needs a bucket of filler. IMGA0516 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0517 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0518 by neil Connor, on Flickr And said filler! IMGA0519 by neil Connor, on Flickr Leave for tomorrow and start sanding.

    The Redemption Spitfire

    Good choice, its probably the best spit in 1/72. Just be aware that the tolerance is much better than the old airfix mkv and the 2 part engine cowls can be tricky. Otherwise enjoy.
  5. Very nice, what is the fin below the net pipe?

    So, just a small update for last week. The waist gunners ammo stowage is in place, but I relocated it as Revell would have it to far away from the gun to be usable. Upper ball turret id one but I have yet to finish the lower turret. I have 3 weeks off for christmas so should be able to get alot done then. IMGA0514 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0512 by neil Connor, on Flickr This is where Revell would have the ammo box positioned. IMGA0515 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0513 by neil Connor, on Flickr The starboard side one wasn't to far off but the port side was, also don't know why they didn't have a right hand feed gun. If I had more time I would correct the short floor in the rear fusalage and mount the ammo boxes as they should be.

    Two Airfix A6M2b Zeros - Then and now

    hoe did you find the montex masks? Tried them on an airacobra but they would not conform to the curviture of the conopy so binned and used tape
  11. Looks good, I'd leave as is
  12. Nice Airacobra, agree the academy kit has a few issues but its worth the effort
