  1. They were purchased from the late great Ron Sands in America.
  2. Rib out of the jig. It is then fixed to a template and the front profile is routed. Finally vertical stiffeners are added.
  3. Poland sending aircraft to Ukraine is fake news.
  4. At least some of this was filmed at Staplehurst.
  5. Not sure exactly, but it's measured in years rather than hours or days.
  6. That's the plan Bertie.
  7. Wing rib being glued. There are 16 separate parts to each completed rib.
  8. Scale is full size. Yes, it needed several jigs to make them accurately.
  9. Making 3/16 ply wing rib nose reinforcement pieces....116 of them
  10. Glueing jigs for wing ribs and undercarriage wing ribs.
  11. Thanks Duncan, I may well do that when there is a bit more to show. In the meantime here's my rib capstrip slotting set up using a router.
  12. Bought this kit a couple of days ago. Yours look great.
  13. Knee deep in sawdust. Making the wing rib parts. 1/16" Birch plywood. Truncated webs are for ribs at the ailerons.
  14. Usually avoid Amazon like the plague, but they have this currently at £15.44 which is not a bad price, so snapped one up using Prime for free delivery. Remember to cancel that within 30 days though.
  15. I think the answer here is, they think everyone else is stupid.
  16. Thanks Andy and for all the likes. It was all straight from the box except for some etch seat belts. The kit decals were excellent. Apart from the wing issue it was fairly straight forward. Just have to be careful with fitting the cockpit section as the location points are a bit airy fairy. The ICM paint scheme instructions show red bands on the nose and spinner. That's incorrect for June '44, so I ignored those. Only problem with photography in strong sunlight is that it accentuates the tiniest of defects which were unnoticeable under artificial light.
  17. Excellent. Also some of the best looking scale grass I've seen.
  18. Thanks Chris, The only problem I had was when I test fitted the wings to the fuselage and found I had anhedral instead of dihedral. That took a bit of work to sort out.
  19. Latest effort. Mustang MkIII of 316 (Polish) Sqdn Used on RAMROD and anti DIVER patrols June/July 1944. Critiques welcomed.
  20. Very nice build. Just a small point....when the wings are folded, both ailerons should be in the down position.
