    EE Canberra B(I)8 Corrections

    Good news indeed! We just need the same for the nose transparency now and a good B.2 canopy John
  2. It's another thing that no one as got right yet, although as mentioned elsewhere in the parish notices, the B(I)8/12 and PR.9 are now sorted with a new lid though I've not seen it yet. For me the CA canopy is the best of the injection canopy's. You may want to take a look at this on my site, The anatomy of the B.2 canopy I think if the kit manufacturers did them like the real thing I think that would improve the look of the kit offering.

    Revell Victor... Just how bad is it?

    Thanks Dennis, I didn't use any conversion parts, it's all gòod old fashioned kit bashing. John

    Revell Victor... Just how bad is it?

    I've built three of them over the years and I've never had much of a problem with it as a build, true it has issues but most kits do, if you want something out of the box the box that looks like a Victor and doesn't cost a fortune then get one. You can dodge the intake problem by fitting FOD guards.

    I need to start planning how I will build the front fan, I have several thoughts all have plus and minus points, it could be a long job. John

    Thanks to a colleague in the Airliner SIG I now have a set of fans. well the back row of fans, apparently they are from a 1/72 DC.10! I need to replace the centre body with something more streamlined, and add another fan in front of this one which will have to be another scratch build job, the fun never stops! John
  10. Hi Mikey thanks for the heads up! Hi too @Marlin do you mind if I tag along? It's a shame you've ordered the Ally Cat canopy I could have sent you a replacement, no one has quite got it right yet. You may want to take a look at this build by my good friend and fellow SIG member Gary, Luftwaffe Canberra 99-34 John

    John, when I first thought that there may be a chance I could actually do this build I thought the wings and engines would be the big hurdle, but as it's turning out it may well be the smallest of things that is going to the biggest headache! but I'm determined to see it through. T'other John

    Well, good question, the way I'm thinking at the moment is just to Mark a line on the surface as a guide, and superglue each one in position. The top side is just one row the underside has two rows. The VG's are V shaped with a gap at the front just to make it even more fun! I should really use thinner sheet but I need to compromise between joint strength and being accurate. John

    As I said, not too much remedial filling to do, which is a nice surprise, With the wings well on the way I've started to look at the tail plains, I've cut 100 vortex generators, it's ok though, I only need 84, which is much better John

    Hi Jeffrey Thanks, unfortunately I/we won't be at the Nat's this year, her first public out (if all goes well) will be Halifax in Feb, net year 2019 will be the Canberra's 70th so we will be doing a full display at Telford, all being well! Thanks Roger, she is big! I dread to think what will happen if anyone brings out a 1/32 Canberra Thanks mate! Thanks Mike, so far so good, I've just topped up what little filing there was to sort.
