    Tamiya 1/48 Fieseler Fi156c Storch

    Today iv mainly been chopping up Rommel , and then putting him back together . Have decided that i will have the pilot and rommel seated in the Storch . As provided in the kit they are in a rather undynamic pose , both facing directly ahead . I wanted Rommel to be looking out of the open door so he has undergon soe surgery . Figured i needed to get a turn in the torso at waist and another at the neck . Lucky Rommel has his hands folded at lap level so i cut direc P1020978 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr This is something like i now want Rommel to be positiond P1020979 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr There are now some large gaps to fill and carve useing Milliput.

    Saab SH-37 Viggen - 1st update

    Looks like a productive modeling session . I guess with us in the Northan hemishere getting longer days and shorter nights = less modeling time you , in the Southern will have more time .

    Monogram 1/48 Heinkel 111H-6 Torpedo Bomber.

    The He111 has a small cockpit compartment for a bomber so lots of detail in a small space . Do you get a crew in this kit ?. Cheers Alistair

    Many thanks for your pictures Rich . they are of great help . The kits desighn doesnot alowe the pilots seat to sit that far forward without some major sergery to parts which is far to far offpiste for me on a kit like this . I might be able to get 2mm further forward with some sanding of front bulkhead . I guess that the armour would be hinged backwards for pilots entry and exit but while in forward position the pilot was traped in his aircraft or atleast couldnot have a rappid exit in emergency. Cheers Alistair

    I think Rich that after looking at your previous build history ,that this kit would be satisfying to all those parts that a challenging kit can reach Tha main parts to the cockpit have now been assembled . Now im not 100% sure it has been done corectly but it matches the two builds im useing as a guide as far as i can see . The back armour plates position is not clear and my first attempt positiond the top of the armour up higher . P1020948 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr The red arrows show it sitting on top of the two lugs at back of cockpit floor. P1020950 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020946 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020952 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr This picture shows the revised position which makes more sence as its more secure and the pipe on the rear right of the armour is removed to alowe a flush fit The down side is that it makes the line up of the seat belts which thred through the back of seat and attatch to armourfar more out of line . To make seat belt threding easier later on i have opend out gaps in seat (red arrows) Blue arrow new armour fixing point completed cockpit in place with some blue tack to see if its got any chance of fitting later on P1020951 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr Details applied to side walls P1020954 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr not sure if this is casting block or not (red arrow) P1020955 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr do not cut this part (red arrow) part at end of tube as its not casting block as picture in refrance book shos it clearly ..cut the other side off thinking it was casting block then couldnt find it to glue back on Considering everything im very pleased with how the cockpit has turned out . There is no way i could have got this far without the two builds im following acting as pathfinders ... Thank you both if you ever read this

    to quote Victor Mweldrew "I dont believe it " i have found a desighn error in Tamiyas flagship kit in the first 5 mins of assembly P1020972 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr The metal pin that will alowe the prop to spin has nothing behind it to keep it in place so once the front part is attached to the engine block there is no way to get it back in place if it were to be pushed in and that is easyly done as it moves and slides very freely . . As im not intrested in a spinning prop i simply glued it . The engine is now complete and whent together without anyneed of filler P1020973 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr The holes to take the engine bearers and the metal pin have been masked with Copydex before a coat of rattlecan black .

    Hi Colin Have always liked the box art for this kit ,and its good to have the contents exposed and built on a G/b that im partisipating in . Good luck. Regards Alistair
  12. As an antidote to my primary build ( Grey matter resin Hs129) i have chosen tamiyas Milestone 100th release . This is only the second tamiya kit iv ever built and is going to be out of the box so im expecting absolutly no problems . P1020964 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020969 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020970 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020971 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020968 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020967 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1020966 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr comes with some figures so maybe a small diorama is inorder ..... no no Alistair dont expand the project ,keep it simple. P1020965 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr This kit is the complete oposite tothe Hs 129 in nearly every way . Thanks for looking Alistair

    Argentina Armada A4 Attack Trio

    Good to see an aircraft production line running . All those economies of painting etc must make this a great way of boosting yearly model completion . Think mine only ran to 4 completions in the whole year of 2018
