  1. It's odd sometimes how you select the next project to work on, isn't it?!? "Of all the kits in all the World, you walk into this...." I don't know how it works in the brain, but this reissue from 1958 is what I've started tinkering with. I've just taken delivery of a bunch of auction wins.... 2 wins comprised of 5 kits.... So I need a WIP to keep me from wandering off on some of the other delectable items. I'm planning on sticking with the kit supplied livery, G-AORG of Jersey Airlines. Should look good if I can pull it off. Here's the state of the bench currently. (I know..... ) Some work internally and preparing for the windows to go in. In the background is a pile of seats, 14 in all. I'm not a huge fan of interior furniture and stuff that can't be seen, but this thing is like a glasshouse with these big windows. If ever a plane needed some seating, it's this one! Wing root recesses are blanked off, and the front bulkhead has had an opening carved into the blank plastic. Cockpit and 2 pilots is progressing... They are basic but workable - the rest of the figures supplied are shockingly bad. And finally a couple of engine units and one of the tailplanes that I have been tinkering with.... The model is a notorious tailsitter and the scope for getting ballast up front is very limited. The supplied passenger stairs can be used to support the tail end if necessary but I want to at least try to balance things. So the nacelles have Ali tube fitted right through and the rest of the nacelle is filled with plasticine. It's not a lot, but 4 of em should be some contribution to weight up the front. The trailing edges of the wings and tailplanes are thick and blunt, and I've been trying out a method I've used before to help the situation with this elevator. I'll explain what I have done shortly. So the plan is for a straight kit build with a few improvements as I go, and nothing too radical.
