  1. One of the benefits of the recent stash survey has been that I came across a few kits that I had forgotten I had. I found the Leonardo de Vinci tank kit and the AMG 1/350 Saunders-Roe Princess kit, both of which I ended up building and having a great deal of fun with. Another kit that I ha forgotten about was the Mikro-Mir Blackburn Beverley in 1/144 scale. The box was in pieces and it seemed the best way to protect the kit would be to try and build it. I say try as I want to super detail the model and have bought the Shelf Oddity etch brass set for the model. This contains some insanely small parts and I am not helping myself here by setting my heart on open cargo doors and a fully detailed cargo bay. If I can carry this off, it will be a nice tribute toa close friend of mine who sadly passed away a few years ago. He was a Loadmaster on Beverleys both at RAF Abingdon and out in Aden. I remember ,as a small child in Oxford, seeing these things flying about and in the mid 1980s a friend and I found the remains of one in a scrapyard at a place called Worminghall, close to the former RAF Oakley. I shall be working on this between other projects so progress may be somewhat slow and as I said, I may well fall flat on my face here. Anyway, to start, I have opened up the crew entrance door in the port side of the fuselage and extended the cargo bay roof all the way forward to meet with the flight deck. Curiously, Mikro-Mir only provide about a third of the roof ye provide a full length floor and detailed fuselage sides right up the the nose. I see much fiddling about with very this plastic strip in my not too distant future! Anyway, here is where we are at as of this afternoon:
