    10th BM Anniversary GB Chat

    Thanks @Black Knightfor hosting this GB. Even better because I managed to get mine in before the deadline expired. Sadly it’s still my only build of 2018 so far!!

    VC-10 tanker K3 and K4

    If I remember correctly, the K4 retained a full set of cabin windows, where as the K3 had a few blanked out. Biggest difference was the fuel tanks in the cabin on the K3 (and K2).

    That’s just about it. Decals all done; final aerials painted. Just the final coat of varnish and remove the cockpit window protection and we’ll be complete.

    It's a Ten from Len

    You must have the magic touch as your tag sent me a notification, I still must be doing something not quite 100% correct. @Fatcawthorne I’ve checked and I did receive a notification that you had tagged me using the @usernamehere thing (I didn’t know that either) I just assumed (erroneously) that it was because you had linked my build topic on your build topic - every day is a school day. Thanks for the info on etched brass and superglue; I guess I’m going to have to try it all out when, if, I get round to the grey K3!

    @Fatcawthorne not sure if the tagging works but I didn’t get a notification that I had been tagged. Your 10 is coming together nicely The etch cockpit captures the real thing quite well - I’m not looking forward to trying it if I get round to the grey K3; I’ve never really hacked etched parts and “super glue”. I always end up with my tweezers and fingers glued to the etch Any tips?

    At last she stands on her own undercarriage. It took some time for me to get the hang of the tiny parts, with my fat fingers and tired eyes, but I have to say that the undercarriage is a good representation of the real thing (even though there is quite a bit of cleaning up to be done) and Roden have captured the nose down stance quite well. Now just the doors, aerials and a coat of gloss varnish to go.

    Finally starting to look like “the Queen of the Skies”. Very slow progress due to work commitments and training for a walk up a small mountain in Africa, but every little helps!! Not sure I will get time to finish her in her guise as a K3 though!!

    Finally starting to come together. A small warning for anyone else building this kit: the decals are extremely fragile and don’t soften and mould to the surface very well

    A little bit of progress this evening, decided to add the markings now. Unfortunately whilst removing the window masks I accidentally knocked in the glazing units, so forward makings only tonight to allow the Krystal Klear to dry in the rear windows. Shame really, it was the rear section of decals I wanted to get done tonight so I could start final assembly!

    Slowly BK; too slowly. Work has been manic and I’ve been away from home quite a lot. There has been a bit of progress, just not had a chance to provide an update.

    Cockpit fuselage join fixed, ok-ish. Next challenge - given the size and design of the fuselage cheatline markings is whether to place them before attaching the engine pods, or try and conduct some surgery and put them on in a more traditional manner at the end of the build.

    So finally having got a bit of spare time back I thought I should crack on. Cockpit canopy fitted, masked and painted which annoyingly reveals a little filling required Then I decided to look at doing the K3 variant of my build and found that I had the detail sets all along!! Could have saved a little time on the cockpit area Now I see the Hawker GB has also started and I signed up to that as well! Second VC10 or first Hawker in a while???

    A little bit of progress on my ‘Queen of the Skies’ with the tailplane and engines in place. For scale, the tailplane was often described as having a Hunter’s wings on your tail. Have to say that I have been very impressed by the general fit of the parts between fuselage/tail and engines/tailplane; hardly any filler required.
