I picked up a cheap little Flamingo kit on eBay for less than a tenner a while back. I wasn’t sure what to do with it - use it as a donor for a scratch build, convert it to something else, build it as a ‘what if’. Then I spotted this group build, and building it as per the kit decals fits the group build brief. So no further excuse needed. The kit is by PM Models of Istanbul (nice city, been there & enjoyed the stay) and there isn’t a lot too it The box art is pretty close to the real thing Makes me think that that I should cut out the rudder and separate the tail horizontal stabilisers. And that vent over the engine would look nicer with it opened up. I don’t fancy cutting up the canopy to pose it open. The kit nose also looks a little short. Might stretch it slightly. Got carried away cutting out the plastic tonight and test fitted it with masking tape & blue tac.
Hi everyone I apologise for having failed so spectacularly in completing any of the recent group builds, so have set the bar much lower ! Please see below the sad remains of the Spitfire recently unearthed from the shelf of doom, which I genuinely had forgotten all about (old age no doubt) The kit is very basic and I haven't tried to "pimp it up" in anyway, so it will be just a matter of finishing the painting, and finding the canopy. What can possibly go wrong with that......... Cheers Pat
