  1. I have no superlatives big enough. This just blows my socks off every time I see it.

    Boiling water works fine for most things, but I used microsol and set with HB decals previously with tolerable results.

    I have a plan... Meanwhile a bottle of.Malbec, and some trashy movie magic, mean I am surprisingly blase...

    Sabre 2 is taking shape. Airfix have the pylon holes in the correct place for a late -F two pylon wing, so I suspect I shall just leave well alone on this build. Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr
  7. I’ve been thinking about this. Really Britain’s greatest contribution to the war was to buy time for the world to take arms against the Nazis. Whether it be 1940, the desert, or the bomber offensive, it was Britain’s sacrifice which bought time. We didn’t win the war, the Soviets’ vast sacrifice of personnel and the Americans’ productivity did that, but we kept the fight going when there was little encouragement.
  8. Did the seat really have armrests? Yes. Or at least most pictures show them. Some further inspiration, if any were needed: 46 by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr Lancaster service by Etienne du Plessis, on Flickr 'Bombing up ' 1944. by Etienne du Plessis, on Flickr
  9. I've asked Messrs Hannants to send you the Kits World sheet for Phantom. It includes yellow patches, and looks decent enough from photos (the ton-up xtradecal sheet was out of stock). Airmail, so should be with you this week, HTH.

    Only if you put them on the right way up! I'm surprised the witches broom hasn't broken off, it's a bit chunky but I decided it was better than I could scratchbuild, so it's staying put unless I break it.

    Thank the gods for superglue Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr And thank the Airfix instructions for showing the correct way!

    There's a bigger problem. I think I've put the tail planes on upside down.

    Untitled by Jon Gwinnett, on Flickr And construction is finished. My only reservation is the fit of the canopy, there's a bit of a step round the edge, but I'll wait until I see it under primer to decide if it requires attention, or some Nelsonian ignoring.
