Hello Dears,

That's my first post on BM, I'll say Hello to the @Martian Hale It's a fonderie kit

 

WP_20180503_15_37_31_Pro

I make it with parts from a Sanger Halifax, mating the 2 is not easy at all !

Even having the 2 BANANAS half fuselages together is a mess !!

Load of plasticard, CA glue, putty and resin and yes !! Sanding and engraving then

WP_20180503_15_37_03_Pro

Lots of work on the internals too, almost scratched since the fitting is Hem !

WP_20180503_15_36_13_ProWP_20180503_15_36_51_Pro

Then came the nose !! Lots of adventures !! tried the 3D printer, wood carving, resin and so on to get back to basics !!

WP_20180503_15_36_36_Pro

And the wings... Pretty funny !!

WP_20180503_15_38_24_Pro

I also detailled the Wheel wells

WP_20180503_15_38_39_Pro

Not finished yet ! Still there is some sanding ahead !

WP_20180503_15_38_45_ProWP_20180503_15_38_15_Pro

Once again the tail is a mixed thing from Sanger, Fonderie and plasticard !!

I hope that you will enjoy the thread, comments are welcomed

Best regards !

Well that gets you past the " Must be a loony" bit of the joining process!

 

You look like you are beginning to wrestle the thing into submission Pierre.

Hello Dears,

Yesterday, coming back from Germany (once again) I paid a visit to my friend BS103 !!

And here's what I have to share with his kind permission !

First… Let's have a look at the Mancave !!

WP_20180930_16_07_19_Pro

That's posh is'nt it ??

WP_20180930_16_07_28_Pro

As one can see, the Halifax is "Still going strong"

WP_20180930_16_08_52_Pro

The helmet are authentic, since Pierre has participated in historical researches about the 99th U.S Div !

Now the Halifax !

WP_20180930_16_07_00_Pro

Giving some insight of how this kit is a pure Hybrid !!

WP_20180930_16_07_08_Pro

Aaaand the last one !

WP_20180930_16_09_36_Pro

@general melchett Hope that you'll enjoy this one too

WP_20180930_16_08_07_Pro

With such builds, one need a Mojo restorer from time to time

A Spitfire Mk VII...

WP_20180930_16_07_58_Pro

Or this (I forget the name, sorry )

WP_20180930_16_07_46_Pro

But then !!

If you are a maniac with the Aircrafts… Why not carryin' on with tracked and wheelie things !!

WP_20180930_16_07_35_Pro

Another nice piece of british engineering :rofl2:

And one of the Funnies !!

WP_20180930_16_08_24_Pro

Last but not least, this one is almost ??? finished !

WP_20180930_16_08_17_Pro

Yes, there is also a Panther in the way !!

Ok Dears, Pierre will be back soon on BM !

Hope that Our Dear @Martian Hale will enjoy the progress on this Fonderie kit !

Sincerely.

Good start Pierre, nice to see an early 1/48th Halibag for a change. Looks like it's coming along nicely old sausage/Bratwurst.

 

Thanks to CC I see you have a Battle on the go too, mine's stalled at the moment but will be raised from the dead at some point soon. How's the Hampden coming on?

 

Great Mancave!

That Halibag looks like it has been recovered from some lake and is under going a restoration.

Great effort there and I wish you luck in completing what is an usual early Mk.

The Hally is looking good. Not wanting to urinate on his parade, but it looks like he's got the prop pitch the wrong way around.

Hello Chris

 

You're right, the prop blades are not glued.

As it is parts from another kit, I posed it with needles, so they can move, Thank for the comments.

Sincerely.

Pierre

Good luck to you with this one, it looks as though you are making a good job of it.

 

Excuse pedantry, but the version you are doing is a Mk.II series 1 (Special).  I don't think that any of the handful of Mk.1s were ever so modified.
