  1. Blimey, talk about Lazarus! Don't think I've had a thread over ten years old resurrected before... Thanks for the continued interest, Dean
  2. Nope, it all went together well as I recall. Just having to install the undercarriage very early on was a bit of a pain. Thanks for the comments folks, Dean
  3. Hi all, As the magazine has just about finished selling now, I can show you some scenic photos of the Blenheim that appeared in this month's AMW. Fuelled up and tooled up, ready for ops in the Greek sunshine, 1941: More conventional magazine shots: Period style: Hope you like it, Dean
  4. Thanks for the comments folks, it's appreciated. Here she is in natural daylight: Cheers, Dean
  5. For the few who've been following my WIP thread, here's the finished article, my reminder of a nice day out... And it's goodbye from me... Cheers, Dean
  6. Hi Pappy, Nope, it's finished now as I said, and it's really not noticeable under the open canopy. Thanks for the info anyway. Cheers, Dean
  7. Nice to see you realised the layout of the front cockpit structure is different to the single seater. Nice one. If you want reference photos, have a look on Facebook at The Two Seat Spitfire Page- loads of stuff on there. As for the identity- PT462? Dean
  8. Thanks for the comments folks. Right, this is the last WIP update, as I've forgotten to take any more photos! Here it is at the end of the weathering stage, with the matt coat on and various stains and scuffs added. Most of them were done according to my reference photos, so if you think it looks overdone, I can assure you it isn't! I've literally just put the finishing touches onto it, and I'll edit the photos tonight and post a RFI thread tomorrow sometime. 85 hours work wrestling this into submission...so I've wave goodbye for now: Cheers, Dean
  9. Hi Colin...I was going to send you a link to the finished article, but wanted to see how it turned out first. It was the best weather day I've ever had at Brunty- I was incredibly lucky there! What other Cold War jets are going to move to Kemble? I know the big stuff can't be moved, and about the plans for hopefully keeping a corner of the site to house them. I saw a post recently that said the Guppy had already been scrapped, but I can't find any confirmation of this- have you heard anything? Cheers, Dean
  10. Actually, the second cockpit is easy enough- get a second kit for it! All you need then is an instrument panel. The problem will be the rear canopy, I think- are you aware that it's not just a standard front canopy? Your drawing shows them the same length, but in reality it's about 20% longer than the front one: Dean
  11. I converted a Revell 1/32 Spitfire into a T.9 a couple of years ago, albeit with the Vickers style rear canopy. Any help I can be, ask away... Good luck with it, Dean
  12. Blimey...dropped down to page 10 and not a single comment on my last update. Have I upset you lot or something..? Latest progress- I got the decals on, a mixture of the kit decals, an aftermarket sheet for the squadron markings, and some self made decals. Compounding the problem was that some of the kit stencils were the wrong colour, being black whereas the Brunty versions were white, so I had to cobble some markings together from spares. Glossed over, they looked ok: The serial number on the fuselage was cobbled together from an aftermarket sheet, but for the large serials under the wings I had to get creative. The decal sheet I had had the serial XW529 on it, so I carefully drew up a pair of '4's the same size and style, cut them out of masking tape, and airbrushed them onto the wings in the correct places: Then I cut the '29' off the decals, and positioned the 'XW5's in the right places...I think they blended in well: I've now started adding the panel line wash, grey on the grey parts and black on the green parts and the hinge points: Some tidying up needed yet, and then on with the matt coat. In other news, the undercarriage has been assembled and is ready to fit: More when it happens... Dean
  13. I did one of these about ten years ago...might be useful to have a look to see the pitfalls of this kit: Dean
