  1. Thanks. There were no major issues but I'd heard that the fit of the cowlings was poor if the engine is fitted. (the kit provides a fully detailed engine). If you intend to have the cowlings closed up, I would recommend doing what I did, and leave the engine out, except for the part the propeller mounts to. For the price of these kits, I was quite pleased. I'll probably do another, but with the engine fitted and cowlings open.
  2. Thanks Bertie. The undercarriage angles pretty much match my reference drawings. The splayed look was a feature (and a weakness) of the 109.
  3. Hi all, My latest effort, built per box, except for addition of some Eduard seatbelts and a few scratch built cockpit details. Tamiya acrylics.
  4. Talking of Operation Daybreak (Anthropoid), On a recent visit to Prague I managed to find St Cyril's church where the Czech parachutists were holed up. I managed to get into the crypt. Very moving experience.
  5. Even if there was an investigation rather than cover up, I don't think anything about it which might be told in mainstream media should be relied upon.
  6. Thanks for the replies. I thought about using micro kristal klear or pva, but I was worried I might end up with a visible puddle between glass layers. I think I will experiment with all your suggestions on some scrap clear plastc. Thanks again.
  7. Not sure if this is the right place to post this.....but, I'm building an ICM Bf 109 F4 which has a separate clear piece for the armoured windscreen which must be attached to the front of the standard windscreen. How would I best glue this on without spoiling either/both transparencies? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  8. Thanks, I'm fairly new around here and had not noticed the tags. Lovely model.
  9. I guess I must have missed something somewhere. You don't tell us which lovely kit or what scale it is.
  10. I'm building an ICM 1/48 Bf 109F-4 at present. This vid gives a good overview of what to expect.
  11. Very nice build. Minor point. I think the wing crosses should be more aligned with the wings rather than the fuselage, ie swept back.
