  1. On Saturday, The Martianess thought it would be a good idea if I went and treated myself to something nice at the LMS to celebrate by passing my RYA Day Skipper exams. This was clearly one cunning plan that could not fail and before you could say little green men from Mars, I was down at the local emporium. I was instantly struck by the new Valom De Havilland Albatross and cash soon changed hands. Valom market the seats and tables for the passenger cabin separately but the shop did not have this set in stock. Initially I thought about not bothering to fully furnish the passenger cabin but having taped the fuselage together, could see at once that the large windows and overhead skylights made this an imperative. A swift trip to the Big H website soon saw the upgrade set winging it's way to Martian Towers. So taken was with the kit that regardless of all the other projects cluttering up my bench, I just had to make a start right away (if I'm not careful, I will wake up one morning and find I have turned into Corsaircorp) Being a limited run kit, with all the potential fit issues that this might bring, I decided to take a slightly different approach to this kit from the usual "start with the cockpit" and tackle the areas where the fit might be a problem first. I glued the cabin bulkheads to the floor and these proved to be a reasonable fit, certainly nothing that a small amount of sanding won't put right. Having reassured myself that things will be OK with the fuselage I turned my attention to the wings and wheel wells. The part supplied for the wheel well roof was clearly undersize so a larger replacement was cut from plastic card, along with an inner wall to each well. Although the kit provides a sturdy main spar for the wings, I decided to add some locating tabs to ad strength to the join of the centre section to the mainplanes. Next up will be to start fitting the various intakes and outer parts of the wheel wells to the wing parts. Thanks for looking Martian
