  1. Thanks everyone! I may do rigging at a later date, I just won't have time before the deadline.
  2. And just like that, it's finished! Thanks to everybody who had a look and commented.
  3. Mirage Hobby 1/48 Lublin R.XIII Ter Thanks to everybody who had a look.
  4. With the wife out with a friend tonight I had an incredibly productive evening painting and assembling. Not many photos as I went along, but here are a couple: Quite a big wingspan! The only parts I still need to assemble are the prop and the gun, then add the windscreen. Thanks for the comments so far - and thanks for looking!
  5. It seems I'm not taking as many photos as I normally do. Since my last update I've buttoned up the fuselage and built up the wings and pontoons. Here's a photo of some seam work being done on the fuselage - just a bit of vallejo plastic putty which I'll sand down once it's fully dried out. Not too many issues so far, I'm just trying to do a better job than I normally do on the seams. I actually think I'll be ready to paint soon - I figure I'm best to paint the wings and pontoons separately from the fuselage.
  6. You're not wrong! I hold my breath any time i'm near it. Can't wait till it's glued in place!
  7. Please excuse the radio silence - I've not had a lot of bench time recently, but finally managed to get the cockpit pretty much done. The fiddliest part was holding the side frames in place to glue them, but I managed to lean them up against a bottle while I lined up the floor section. In the absence of any reference photos, I just painted it with Vallejo Metal Color dull aluminium. I'll have a go at fashioning some seat-belts out of masking tape, though I'm not sure what configuration they would have been in, so it'll just be guesswork.
  8. I can see only a few of your photos - still flickering grey links for most of them, even after you started using the Flickr BBCode.
  9. Thanks for all the replies, I hope the build doesn't disappoint! So like I said, I made a start on the PE cockpit. It's all quite fiddly, and the instructions are not very clear as usual. Also there isn't much online in the way of reference material, so I'll just have to make an educated guess at the positioning of some parts. Anyway, here's what I've done so far:
  10. My build for this GB is this kit I found on Ebay while looking for something I'd never come across before. Should be an interesting build, I think. I've also got myself a PE set from Part in Poland, and a Yahu control panel as another option. Not too many parts, and they look pretty good. Not sure about the deep lines on the floats though...a bit "padded cell": Also not many decals for a 1/48 kit. 1930s aircraft had fewer markings though, I guess. Only one page of instructions, along with a black and white painting guide: Thanks for looking in - I'm excited to join in the GB as I've not joined one for ages. I've made a start on the fully PE cockpit so far, but I'll post that later on. Let the fun begin!
  11. Looks good so far - can't wait to see that resin pit come together!
  12. I would say I'm an intermediate builder. Comfortable with aftermarket of any type and basic scratch-building. New to ships though. I'll take a look at the trumpy/academy kits, as well as the airfix Ark Royal, although I believe that's a very old kit and may fight me a bit. Thanks for all the advice!
  13. Nothing too big. 1/600 or 1/700 I guess. I'm not sure what the common scales are for ships...
  14. I'm keen to try a maritime subject and fancy doing an aircraft carrier. I don't want to spend much on it due to the fact it'll be a learning experience for me, so could somebody give me some suggestions?
