  1. Glad this one is back on track. But its never 4 years since you started this, I won't beleive it. Tim
  2. Me, Impatient? how dare you sir! Just get on with it. Thank Gill for me for her kind offer (you could learn a thing or two..........), but I'm not sure there are enough turnips aboard for a true Baldrick. Tim
  3. Pass on my birthday congrats. something to say you have survived another year especially as it 2020! Tim
  4. Modelling? I was going to ask the moderators to move this to a chat room Tim
  5. The instructions do need a second look when you think you know what goes where may be, may be.................. don't get me drooling at the idea take it slowly with lots of test fitting, re-read the instaructions and it hopefully it won't be as bad ad I seem to be making out Tim
  6. Normally I go the masochistic route and use strips of masking tape, but in this case the eduard set probably saved my sanity (whats left of it) Tim
  7. You know how it is when you get a kit that just fights you till the end, well this is one of those. I had reasons for getting this done besides having it next to my Whitley and Wellington (that is being worked on next). Originally this was to be the Valom boxing. That got so far, but I messed up the wing joints and the legendary fit of the clear parts defeated me (even tried the Airfix and falcon versions to see if some combination would work). Then the AZ version with new clear parts came into my possession . This time it would work! There would be no duff wing/fuselage joint
  8. Hi all, Managed to finish this off finally. Failed to keep up to date with the build log in the WIP area. Oh well, next time. Pretty much as it come out the box. Well apart from the Xtradecals markings for an early bomber version; the Brengun Vickers VGO gun; Eduard seat belts. Think that was it. Oh, and the Eduard masking set (inside and out!) that was fun. No issues with the build. Lots of detail that will never be seen again. Shame. The black is Alclad primer, good old Humbrol 29 for the dark earth and Colour coats dark green (lovely stuff).
  9. Well this shows my inablility to keep up with the progress of my builds. The build is now done, but I will get the camera out and take a few shots for the RFI, but here are a couple of shots for now Tim
  10. After the X-Wing I finished last year, it was only a matter of time (and actually getting hold of one) before I did a Y-Wing to sate my desire for more Star Wars models. Not much to say about the kit that has not already been said. Lovely to put together. The broad-sheet format of the instructions is entertaining. The missing clear part of the canopy at the rear was cut from a peice of clear sheet and fitted. Paints were some that "looked about right" (TM) to my eye. Now where to find a B-Wing................ Comments welcome. Tim
  11. Yes, I remember your Wyvern. At least I think that was an ED job? And it was some years go. Tim
  12. If you can get some, non-fogging superglue works well. Thats what I used on mine - It does not stick as quickly as normal superglue (except to your fingers) but quick enough so that it does not slide out of place. Tim
  13. OK, so I said this would be glacial Due to this virus thing, I was doing some cleaning out of the model area and discovered this kit where I had hidden it 7(!) years ago. For some reason, I opened the box and thought, how hard could it be to get this together? Stupid boy, I have loads of other projects on the go I should be concentrating on. Well I nearly have the fuselage together. Trying to get everything straight and level is proving a challenge. Now I know why I hid it all those years ago,. Come back in 2027 for the next exciting instal
  14. It looks like it. The airfix kit has this part. Tim
