  1. Probably in the same place as my wallet. I swear the carpet monster is getting greedy…
  2. I did see it in the magazine - good size spread that showed the model nicely. Just thinking, if you are coming back to the UK next week and not going to the US until February, you have time for a UK tour!!

    Why does it always start to rain when I need to jobs outside?

    Why do Airfix bother with the annual Advent calendar when all we do is whinge about it?!?
  5. Does this mean we will finally get to see you put lighting in one of your builds?!?
  6. As cunning as Mr Fox, the illegitimate son of Mr Sneaky and Miss De Vious??
  7. My daughter passed her practical driving test this morning at the first attempt with only five minor faults. Who’s a proud Dad!!?
  8. I have had the pleasure of following this build from the beginning and can't believe it is over - it feels like my first born child is leaving home! The level of detail is frankly amazing. I am only sorry I won't be able to see it before it goes to the US but at least plenty of others will be able to admire it. I hope I have helped with my encouragement over the years and can't wait to see what comes next - 1/20 V-bomber, anyone??
  9. Sadly this is how I remember her... used to go an have look around whenever we visited my uncle who lived across the road.
  10. Joy of joys - after six months of waiting I now have eight renderers working on the outside of the house (bit like a well known phrase about buses); by Monday we should have the K-Rend finally completed.
  11. Builders/plasters/scaffolders (+any other trades you want to add) who do not turn up when they say they are going to. This is slowly driving me nuts as I like to know what is happening and who to expect when. I get that they are busy and that there are material shortages but they could at least have the decency to pick up the phone and let you know they are not coming...
  12. Hi Fozzy, I wanted to give this some thought before I shoved in my tuppence worth... I like the idea you describe above but I would suggest making the stands a little taller (similar to the yellow ones in the photos) so you could have one bomb bay door fitted open and the ball turret on a perspex base placed under its actual position. This would allow all of the detail to remain in the fuselage (to show how cramped that area was) but also show the detail in the turret. Clever positioning of mirrors would also help along with a comprehensive display of some of the build photos (before you put them together in your soon to be released book...) Brian
  13. I love the idea of a split fuselage - they did something similar with a U-Boat at the maritime museum at Ellesmere Port that looked spectacular. Downside was it was above the level of the perimeter fence so if you came out of the docks on a foggy night you quite suddenly came face to face with the torpedo tubes of a U-Boat - particularly if driving a truck! Quite unnerving if you didn’t know it was there. Left me with slightly loose bowels the first time in happened to me… Whatever you decided to do will look stunning. I will be sad to see this build finish after 10 years of encouragement and occasional heckling but I can see why you have had enough!
  14. I reckon I would have left it two inches shallower…
