  1. The photographs in the instructions in the Nimrod kit are mine too I shared them with Lukasz for the development of this kit. You can see my name is mentioned on the page : Glijn Van Driessche
  2. No problem, It probably would have been better not to include those photographs since it gave a wrong impression
  3. I only closed it after I took the photographs! It closed alright but being a resin kit I will need to clean up the seams more than in a regular kit. Some details on the underside were slightly damaged or les defined and need restoring.
  4. Here is the second part of my Lukgraph Hawker Nimrod MK I build. Cockpit interior is finished now and I am ready to close the body. I added gun feeds, the cockpit hatch closing bar, the bras fire extinghuiser and many more details. For the seatbelts I used the RB Productions Sutton A Harness. Hope you like it! These parts are just put together to test, at the moment I took the photographs no glue had been applied. It
  5. I already did so and found several but it is not entirely clear if they are from WWII or WWI. That said I suppose they might look alike and I wil make one from scratch. It will look a lot better in a bras version! Thank you so much for pointing that out to me. Thank you
  6. Hello Peter glad I could help and that you can still make the necessary changes. Do you have a photograph or drawing of the fire extinguisher used on the Fury and Nimrod? i used a red one but apparently it is a modern version it should be a brass-bodied Pyrene fire extinguisher filled with Carbon Tetrachloride. I found photographs online but cannot directly make out if the ones in WWII on British planes were comparable with the thirties versions?
  7. Hi Roger thank you for the comment, I can still change it if I have a photograph of the original fire extinguisher. Do you have a photograph that you could share? or can you tell me where I could find one?
  8. Yes it was and I can still correct the left side too. The part with the metal panels on that side. Who would have thought the interior colours were so different left and right...
  9. Hi, I have been working a bit more on the Lukgraph Hawker Nimrod MK.I. The sides of the cockpit were treated now. And I had to restart the right side... I noticed that I made a mistake in painting the right side of the cockpit in wood/red. My own walkaround photographs of the cockpit had misled me because the metal panel on the right side was taken off for servicing. The Nimrod has wood on the left side and on the floor with green metal strips. The part to the front of the green strips on the left side wil have to repainted too where the metal plate starts as I found out on a new p
  10. HI this is a fantastic build and completely out of my league. But I have a question, I am building the Lukgraph Hawker Nimrod MK.1 in 1/32 scale. Today I noticed that I made a mistake in painting the right side of the cockpit in wood/red as you did. My own walkaround photographs of the cockpit had misled me because the metal pannel on the right side was taken off. The Nimrod has wood on the left side and on the floor with green metal strips. The right side however was grey since there is a metal pannel on that side as I noticed from a couple of photographs I found online.. while the Nimro
