    I'm considering my strategy,  possibly lurking in the background until 2300 UK time on Monday 14 November


    I'm considering keeping my powder dry in this fashion, too.  Or, alternatively, going full-on with the bloodletting.  Only time will tell which way I'll go!

  2. Cool builds, sir.  I flew with 6 AEF once; I'll have to check my 3822 and see if it was in that airframe.  I can't believe it took Airfix so long to get around to a tidy 1/48 Chippy, but I'm really enjoying the plethora of builds that are showing up on BM.  Now, will Airfix make a 1/24 version?  I reckon there are enough of us who cut our teeth on Chippies to warrant it!

    Little more than a teaser, I'm afraid.  I seem to have been stuck doing piddly little bits here and there, even though I thought "Surely the gloss coat will be next" about two weeks ago....  Turns out that real life truly gets in the way of building.  Anyway, tonight I put most of the undercarriage and the speed brakes in, so I am at least getting somewhere, if not making giant leaps.  I've also got the black paint on the arrestor hook and cut out and painted the transparent sections of the navigation lights.  So, there's some progress being made.  Hopefully I can get the gloss coat on soon.


    Cheers, and thanks for keeping the faith!

    This arrived for me this morning.  One thing's for sure - I'll be buying a set of masks for the glazing rather than cutting my own.  The interior detailing is not quite as good as the recent new toolings (this being a re-release) but the exterior is superb.  One more for the Luftwaffe Twins GB, should it survive the November carnage.

  5. Hello Monty, it's good to have you here.  The forum's membership offers a wealth of experience and advice to those who are getting started or are in the intermediate stages (I like to think of myself as being an intermediate, skill-wise, but I may be flattering myself here!) and help is given freely.  It's a very nice community to be part of and I hope very much that you enjoy it.
