  1. Really unusual choice there John I'm feeling a sudden need to do a bit of background research on Free French forces in the Central African Republic. mike
  2. I know where you're coming from as my projects usually run aground with the end bits. Can't wait to see the end product but don't want to put you under any undue pressure. mike
  3. Hello ?......... Any update on this ? I’m getting withdrawal symptoms
  4. Don’t tell anyone about the 737 build......it will be our secret
  5. "It's the seats what's done me head in !" I've attached the wingbox / main undercarriage bay to the fuselage and the joints have been blended in. Fit was better than expected with just a bit of filler on the forward joint. I also took the opportunity to remove the nosewheel door sections from the fuselage, as I'm not planning on trying to add the nosewheel bay near the end of the build. Flipping the fuselage over, I attended to the seam on the top I didn't bother with the white bit at the end of the fuselage as this will be covered
  6. Back again. Had a bit of an issue while fitting the canopy (but it was all of my own making! ). Anyway, I've covered the mess with masking and I'm hoping that no-one notices. Subsequently painted the black sections of the scheme and pre-shaded the model while I was at it: The black sections were masked off and I've applied the first layer of PRU blue to the bottom surfaces. I'll apply the second coat tomorrow. Once dry, I'll mask these off before applying Dark Sea Grey to the top.
  7. What a combination ! Thanks for sharing. mike
  8. Apologies for not having thanked everyone for their kind comments sooner. Much appreciated. mike
  9. I feel the pain Mike because I’m sure I’ve binned more models than I’ve ever completed. Would loved to have seen this finished, but stuff happens. mike
  10. Crikey Ray. Lots of lumps. bumps and sticky-out things on that ! My carpet monster would have been able to retire on the offerings if I'd been building one of those . Congratulations on getting it over the finishing line. mike
  11. Fantastic job Ian, but the mods may put you on the naughty step for saying something rude... Two thumbs up for the model, the paintjob and the vignette by the way mike (Looking forward to the Zvezda kit !)
  12. Don't know how on earth I managed to miss this? Glad I caught it as it's spectacular to say the least mike
  13. Sitting up and paying close attention Matt. Useful reference if I ever manage to graduate from 737. mike
  14. Gold ?! That does deserves a diamond ! Absolutely stunning
