  1. If the Bismarck were my build I'd be itching to get some primer on it - it doesn't look like it's far off that stage.
  2. All the other builds on the shelf of doom are quaking in fear. I feel a bit like King Kong treating the poor fella to that treatment though.
  3. Nose opened up. Also tidied up the scribing on the split flaps, but don't think I should have bothered as they have just been carried over from the F.1A kit, and are incorrect for the F.3. A little bit of filler will get us back where we want to be.
  4. Rather brutally taken to bits - start again time I reckon.
  5. Oh yes please, if @JOCKNEY's doing some rigging I'm in! Now where is that Contrail Perth?
  6. Must be, they look very good. I'm leaning towards an Estonian Camel though - just need to trawl for some pics.
  7. We love a Mersu - what schemes are you treating us to?
  8. This one has a bit of rigging, so it should keep @JOCKNEY happy if nothing else. Another kit started by the eldest lad a long time ago, and when I told him last night it was back on the bench he could only ask, "Why?" I think it comes from moulds that produced a kit back in 1957. I might have to try a bit of dis-assembly, as there is something not aligned, but the tube glue used doesn't look like it will give up its hold easily. We do have decals though.
  9. That black finish looks good to me - my F3 is weeks away from anything like that so I'm a little jealous.
  10. Yup, sorry about that! However the lad also started an Airfix Sopwith Camel from the same collection set which he never finished. From memory he glued the lower wing the wrong way around and gave up. If I can find it, that'll be next - with rigging.
  11. A bit of progress tidying up the rear end, but more sand/fill/prime sessions on the horizon. Couldn't live with the blocked off intake area, so progressing on this, which will also allow some nose weight to be inserted to avoid the horror of the tail-sitter. It's ok for a kit that saw the light of day in 1963, albeit in F.1A mode, though I can't see too much shape correction taking place.
  12. If you save this fella the single malts are on me.... . Good luck!
  13. Many thanks for the offer - I found some Xtradecal ones this morning off a used sheet - 56 Sqn with the chequerboard tail and red spine! There's even a few stencils left on it so I think that will do nicely. Hopefully have some filler out later to start the process.
  14. This is not even my own build. My eldest son started this about 20 years ago. We had an Airfix collection set, something like '70 years of RAF fighters'. He started this, didn't finish, and I swapped it with him for one of the new mould Lightnings.... . Can't find the decals, and the rear end needs a bit of tidying, but apart from that it doesn't look like too difficult a finish - we'll see.
  15. Yup, I really need this GB to run all year round for a couple of years to clear the shelf of doom.
