After realising that I participated in over 200 posts I have yet to present a model for inspection. I have a Hasegawa Hurricane and Airfix BF109f on the bench. I finally completed my FW 190-A3. So this is my actually my second completed model. it is also my first attempt at some sort of base. I started the model just over two weeks ago and was in a rush to finish it last night (13/8/14) )so that I could present it as a gift to a young Chinese lad that I have been helping prepare for his IELTS test. A few weeks ago we were practising the "listening exercises" and all I think of at the time was to briefly narrate the story of Douglas Bader. Shock and horror- he had no idea what a Spitfire was. This needed to be corrected and once, so I thought that would build him a model as a keepsake. The results are below. There are number of things I'm really unhappy about in the build namely the canopy , being unable to get any type of dihedral on the wings and a few obvious the mishaps that started occurring as the clock neared midnight last night and I was extremely tired. As always I welcome comments criticisms suggestions and a general whack on the head with appropriate words "Proby" - ( Jethro Gibbs NCIS) Appologies for the duplication: I posted this in Work in Progress with some terrible grammar : Note to self - Don't use dictation Software when tired"
