After some trials and lots of Anglo-Saxon I found the only way I could do it was to stick the bottom to the crossbar (nasty), let it dry and then cut in and glue the tops.

Smart thinking! :clap:

You're definitely getting there, and I'm definitely going to sell mine. I will convert it into an Airfix Blenheim Mk 1 or possibly two Spitfire XIVs.

Sounds like even more work than just modding the intakes. 🤷‍♂️

Sad(ish) to hear that John but she is big… that said if you ignore the 'issues' it's a nice kit :)

Speaking of which, I've spent time today with various files re-shaping the intakes. Groan.

I've also spent time arranging the pick up of the T-Roc on Friday; after eight months wait I'm excited! I'll post a picture when I've picked it up. It better be worth the wait…

 

Blast of primer to highlight problems like what proper modellers do:

Just for Matt I've rounded / ramped the fronts:

… while still maintaining the appearance of squareness:

I'm definitely BOI now (Bored Of Intakes) and to be honest they don't look too bad from a distance:

…especially when viewed from their 'on the ceiling' angle:

I do need to clean up and polish a bit, especially the vents.

It'll keep me busy while I'm waiting for the resin bits.

Better chase Alec - I may need to put this aside for a while.

No, no, no. That's a collection of 4 frankfurters with wings on.

"Like what proper modellers do"

 

???

 

To my mind, young Buffers there's no properer modeller around than Mr Ced B

 

You tackle em all with gusto

 

 

 

 

And a staggering number of ' letsdoit' tools

 

Nimmy is looking darned good Ced, I would be proud of those intakes

Just a smoothing over, maybe with PPP and a damp/wet cotton bud

 

Yep, I'd be proud of what you have done and how far you've come, especially having to cope with enforced merriment, company and wine

 

Looks the bizz!

I would leave them as they are after really smoothing them. The square look comes also from the shadow inside with the right angle of light coming in on the real photo. You won't get this on a model photo exactly, but nearly there. So everything is fine for me by now.

Btw on  demand: Will we get other sausages or steaks here on your further build? I'll have to be prepared then. :whistle: Cheers
