  1. Flaps are often left down by the mechs,lots of lubrication to be done up there plus fuel leaks to trace and rectify . Good luck scratch building them down,its a very busy area.
  2. I have one thats stalled at the moment, i have tried vac forming one with less than satisfactory results,i have been looking out for the rare as hens teeth Maintrack canopy set but to no avail.i also have a second unstarted one as i would like one in camouflage and one in silver and white.knowing intimately what this kit is like,i look forward to seeing what you do with it.
  3. Excellent, may i join the party,would you be willing to sell a couple of your nose vacform transparacies ? Neil
  4. Loving this build,do you know about the cabin pressure outflow valve.Its located on the cargo door(not the ramp),as your looking at your photo,there is a hole ,the second skin panel fwd from the back of the cargo door,its on the aircrafts left hand side.its about a foot wide.i can measure it more accurately later in the week if you need me to.its a butterfly valve that opens and shuts during flight regulating the cabin pressure.From the outside its just a hole thats closed off about 5 nches in with the circular butterfly valve.its painted a satin black colour.
  5. Nice,the B1a is also my favourite version,I have an Airfix one to backdate sitting in the stash.
  6. Was there anything else of interest on the airfix stand?
  7. Have just found a lovely colour picture of XF970 taken around 1966 in Britains Military Aircraft in colour 1960-1970 by Martin Derry.I think this fits my needs perfectly,just need to sort out some decals for the Empire test pilots school markings.
