  1. I shall start off with this unusual aircraft that operated from Italy on anti shipping strikes. Unfortunately she wasn't very successful and incurred great losses before moving to Germany.
  2. Haha yes thought-out would throw a few people. I have both Boxing's but will do the large antishipping version.
  3. I'm in with a P.108 And as a side a tribute to the Tuskegee airmen with 5 Tang's.

    Ok, a bit of progress on this bird. Cockpit painted along with other internal bits requiring some colour. DSC_0298 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Engines DSC_0299 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Engine Nacelles to wing. No issues apart form a small bit of sanding on top of the air intake to the wing nascelle. DSC_0300 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Internal compartments starting to be cemented to the fuselage halves. DSC_0301 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Fuselage cemented along with the wings attached. I added weight to the fuselage nose opposite side to the nose wheel oleo. AND i dropped some liquid gravity in the nacelles. I dropped it in through the U/C opening once everything has set. This way i could temporarily affix the u/c in place put the wheels on and see where her equilibrium is. the shot was held in place with PVA also just dropped in the hole. Warning! you need to keep her nose down to prevent any PVA from oozing out of the wheel wells. DSC_0302 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Masking time, with the aid of an Eduard set which is a must as there is a lot of glazing. DSC_0303 by stuart wellard, on Flickr All masked up ready for some internal colour then primer. DSC_0304 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Wheels getting some treatment.

    Sorry for the lack of update, progress has been slow with all the other GBs on the go, so much variation and wants to do in them. Anyway some progress. Test fitting the cockpit showed that by lining it up at the rear of the coaming that the front end just woulnt line up with the front windscreen, so a little fettilng is required and its needed to be held in place to get it to fix. DSC_0296 by stuart wellard, on Flickr A nice light blue stripe along the fuselage was hand painted which may give a clue to what bird im making. Cockp;it got a coating of internal cockpit colour. DSC_0296 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Masking up of the second colour. I had to mask and airbrush these as the decals seemed to just break up in warm water. Very fragile indeed from S&M. Tip tanks painted ins Xtracolour FS15042 Gloss Sea Blue. DSC_0306 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Red Duly applied. This is the closest match from all my reds which is Xtracolour RLM23 X217. Its a perfect brightness but deep red. DSC_0307 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Masking of the very very thin white line between the two colours. DSC_0308 by stuart wellard, on Flickr

  9. Absolutely lovely, i must say i do like all things dutch, those roundels are very evocative on aircraft. Just got to get on with my builds now especially as ive found out the multiple interior colours of the C/D's.

    Thanks Tony, typical as i had a set made for me a wfew years back just waiting for a better C/D model to be released. Was hoping Hasegawa followed up with their G,H,J versions but welcoming the airfix release. Might have to grab that sheet for the other schemes!
