  1. Hi no i haven't. Got side tracked with it at the moment . On the card front i looked everywhere i could think and drew a blank on the size (not being big enough) i will have a look wicks bnq to see how flexible it is and if it will work with the curve of the roof. Thanks very much David
  2. Hi thanks i have seen that hanger build and had the same idea but joined my two halves together in a similar manner but on a flat surface. i put weights on it to hold it flat while it dried but on taking of the weights i didn't stay very flat and to be honest i was never going to be very happy even before i started with a joint in the middle that i thought impossible to hide .. i will have to keep searching . posting pics .. only have pics on my mobile and not a very computery person.. i only found out how to post a new topic today by chance visiting the home page for the first time since coming on here lol. i could pull your car into thousands of pieces and put it back together but the only this i have ever pasted is wallpaper. lmao
  3. Hi folks have made a start at building my CPM 1/48 hanger. and on glueing the roof cover sections together and them sticking. pva. as soon as they touched.. out of line with each other and having to use a damp cloth to separate them and reset them in the right position it has all gone a bit wobbley.and the joint looks dreadfull. not happy at all. can anyone tell me where i might be able to purchase via royal mail, a sheet of this micro corrugated cardboard big enough A1 to do the roof in one piece ? any help gratefully received. i was going to put a pic of it on for you to laugh or cry about but don't seem to be able to load it from my phone gallery??
  4. absolutely fantastic. i can't imagine the man hours involved in building such a masterpiece .

  6. Food for thought ?? I purchased a Testors 1.48 scale Supermarine S6B racer on ebay that i intend to build . i have previously seen one by Airfix In my humble opinion beauty doesn't come greater than that .
