I'm all moved in to my new place, got the internetz up and running with no effort at all (plugged the router in, switched it on, walked the dog, came back, used internet) and am currently still a bit dazed by the extra space I have here. I got my modelling table set up in the back room: Just look how tidy! And remember it well for we shall not see its like again. I will be building this bad boy: I bought it several years ago, I can't even remember where now but they were as rare as hens' teeth even then. Fortunately for anyone who wants one at a reasonable price they are currently available as a re-pop under the Hobby2000 label from Poland and include nicer quality transfers and a vinyl mask set, I believe they can still be had for less than 20 pounds. Many years ago I built the Guillows balsa wood kit of the Avenger which never flew (or at least it had the flight characteristics of its component parts of balsa and tissue if they had simply been thrown unassembled into the air) but did hang for several years from the ceiling of a flat in Southend - my ex always referred to it as 'the grumbling avenger' Anyway here's the instructions and transfer sheet for mine: I've ordered the Print Scale decal set for mine, as the kit ones look as thick, shiny and hard as crockery. The clear parts: ... various bits: ... wings: The undercarriage bays are much too shallow, but not quite as bad as the picture suggests. In so far as I will be displaying it, it will be displayed the right way up anyway. Finally, the fuselage halves: I do have a few extras, namely the Eduard mask set: ... and a couple of Eduard's Super Fabric seat belts: As I mentioned above, I also have some aftermarket decals on the way, the print scale set includes markings for some interesting early Avengers including the Midway ones in Blue Gray over Light Gray, one in a similar scheme with the red-bordered stars and bars and one with the same national markings in the tri-colour scheme. I'm not sure which I will be doing yet, I'll decide when I've had a proper look at them. Cheers, Stew
