I have a bagged copy of this kit and was also thinking about building it for the GB. We will see how I go with the other builds I have planned.

 

Were you going with the kit scheme?

Cool!  Saw a couple of these recently - impressive beasties!

Well had a pretty crappy week, vulcan turned into a ground hog day model, some issues with my airbus in terms of glue sinkage, and some other stuff not worth mentioning. But here we go

That long seam could really have done with a strip of plasticard backing it from the inside, it would've taken some of the flexing out of the joint (always a worry on a long seam).

 

You seem to have come a long way, got any more WIP shots?

So what is the issue, Stu? I see a little bit of a seam that can be tended to with a bit of sanding/filing?

Quite an alignment issue, will take a close up picture in the morning.

Another gb that has shot passed, got a revell mirage 2000 on its way, if I can mix up some blue paint im sure I can squeeze it in :) 

I'm sure you can and I hope you have more luck than you did with your Mirage IV

Underway, and mixed some blue paint, suspect I'll continue tweaking it once it's on the model, simple build with just a little filler for the wing roots and intakes, plus the nose gear bay.

Canopy fit leaves quite a bit to be desired, see why all t builds online have it posed open
