Having moaned about the way the after market business is changing modellers to assemblers how happy it made an 'old' modeller when I saw your innovative approach to the engine nacelles for you RB 57 project. I have long wished for a model of this aircraft but having experienced mach 2 products before I would rather scratch build. Off into the loft where I find the Matchbox PR9. An Italeri B57A and a B 57 G as well as usable bits of an ex frog re-badged B1a. I cobbled together a 1/72 plan from the internet some years back which I managed to find so its down to the DIY store tomorrow for a couple of light fittings. Thanks for kick starting my modellling interest and you also prompted me to join Britmadeller. I watch with interest your progress and look forward to your next posting. When I start my RB 57F I may post progress but as a newcommer I might just walk before I run.!
Thank you I'm glad you like my efort, I've always enjoyed the challenge of trying to work around problems, the RB.57F has always been one I wanted to have a go at in 1/48 but I couldn't see a way around the engine problem until, urica! a true lightbulb moment! I'd already found a work around for the wing on my RB.57D build, so no excuses. It's not been easy but, hell I'm enjoying it! Any help I can offer please get in touch.
