Thrill a minute stuff, this modelling caper, innit? I did eventually get my EE Lightning GB Hasegawa F Mk.6 completed, albeit somewhat ex post facto. There's a couple of thingies on the bench at the moment that are almost complete (a Hasegawa Vanship from the anime 'Last Exile' and a Revell RifRaf and his Spitsfire), along with a couple of others (OK, a couple of couples, plus a few) that are further away from completion, including my entries in both the Lesser Built AF GB and the French Fancy GB...

As a result, the 2 almost complete ones will take building precedence, the rest will go to the back corner of the bench, and when I have a space, the Sea Glad will be happy to get going, even if it will be late to enter the fray. (At least I'm here right at the start.)

Box, sprues, decals et al, photographed as required. ('scuse the ugly photos - phone camera late at night, I will endeavour to do better when it comes time.)

There are 2 options suitable for use in the box, but I'm not yet sure which will get the guernsey to take part in the scrum - one has a pilot's personal markings on it, t'other is a generic squadron airframe; I guess we'll see what we see when we see it (how's that for decisive, eh?) The roundels, flashes and codes may be junked for painted ones, as Roden's versions are very bright and look quite thick - if anyone's used them, I'd appreciate some info on how well they work, please.

More anon.

Nice to see something different going to be made for this GB (I'm sticking, however, with two Spitfires! :pilot::pilot:)

Looks like an interesting project. :popcorn:

Popcorn already? Crikey, that's intimidating...

It actually looks like a pretty nice kit, and will most certainly be an easier build than the Eduard Hannover Cl.III I started for the LBAF GB. That one will have to wait, and hopefully this more modern kit will give me some skills in biplane engineering.

I may only be building one a/c, but I have as many wings as you. Nyah, nyah, nyah. ;)

Good to see some of the less widely known participants in the BoB being represented. Will keep tabs on this!

Cheers, Paul

Rather different, looking forward to seeing what you do. Not a kit I have ever used before
