  1. My first Uboat is in the books. Enjoy! Build thread: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235096218-revell-uboat-ix-c-172-build/ Thank you T & A for the help, the friendship, & the support.
  2. After a desultory modelling performance for 2014 (rediscovered how much I love playing jazz guitar and forgetting how much practise you need), I’m throwing caution to the wind and attacking my burgeoning stash. Need to practise my canopy masking and get to grips with Xtracolor while I’m at it. This is the victim, harmless, not very good and something I won’t weep over if I trash it. Apparently Airfix are re-issuing this – hope they put in a decent interior and do something about the wheel wells i.e. box them in and put in some detail. Decided on this wild and crazy scheme from Wings Palette, seeing as I have some horrible smeary 1948 war decals from Lift Here to make use of. Those Lift Here decals are horrible and a waste of 7.99 compared the sharply printed but wafer thin Techmod versions. That said, the owner emailed me on a Sunday and sent out a replacement that arrived from Serbia in two days. Sadly that was even more smeared and blurry than the original, Lift Here- great service not so great decals. First point of call is the sparse cockpit: I made up some crap for the side walls but got bored moving around 0.1mm rod with Mr Hobby extra thin cement so stopped after this was done and some sanity was still present. Control panel from Airfix Mk1 Spit will be added later. Hey lookit the crow bar, even flattened the ends and made it look like the one in Mk 24 I clean at Solent Sky every week! The seat should be replaced but a back rest, a jauntily angled control column and some homemade belts are going to be Pilot Officer Abdul’s lot The keen eyed may spot the rather gaudy green: used the wrong interior green, doh! Next is a gunsight- according to the refs it is a flat, bronze coloured object and this is as close as I’m getting. There were two pieces of glass but what are you gonna see through this? (And this after Future-ing!) While various varnishes dry and glues set, a quick dry fit: Time to go molest a Telecaster and play weird sounding chords, more tomorrow..
