Hi Joseph,

 

you are giving me a scientific and logical explanation. I like that.

At the time my cartesian approach could have been summarized by "Yukkk!!!".

I never paid attention to the upsweep. I puttied, sanded, etc... and got everything quite right. And then I cracked the canopy...

Many unsuccessful attempts later at thermo-forming a new one led to my chucking the model into the spares' box...

 

I have never looked at a 1/144 kit again thereafter.

Shame.

 

JR

There are some amazing 1/144 kits now, some even have better details than the much larger kits.

Yep she’s joining us. Need’s to finish the Spitfire and tidy her bedroom first. (What a dad thing to say!)

But with the modellers priorities!

How’s she coming on? I’m mulling starting mine. What’s the fit like?

To be honest, I haven’t started yet, hopefully soon.

Ha! Fair enough. Don’t consider that a heckle!
 

I know all about not finding the time for this hobby (he said, hoping the two toddlers upstairs lie down and go to sleep at SOME point this afternoon).

Im still using @nimrod54‘s special modelling specs :hypnotised: and managed to get some tape belts added to the seat. 

 

 I do feel I should apologise to host @JOCKNEY and the Britmodeller massive for getting to the second page before any building occurred :sorry:. In my feeble defence, I was lead astray by @trickyrich :whistle:

Thought your sudden love of all things small does have me worried!

 

What's orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot.

Time to catch up with this one, nose is fitted but needs sorting as there’s a step.

Need to finish this, start the Sea Harrier with my good buddy @nimrod54, finish a Deffiant in the BoB GB, give @trickyrich some stick and start a RAFG Tonka.

Looking good mate, sounds as though you have plenty planned for the next few weeks. I hope to be joining you in the Tornado STGB too.

If you ever build one of these, fit the nozzles early on. They don’t fit well especially when the wing pylons are fitted. Lets just say it was good that I had the house to myself :rant:

Nice! I’m going to start mine soon. Thanks for the tip. Any other pitfalls?

No, it’s all good. The pitfalls where my own problems. 

Finished her now

Just wondering how many @trickyrich has finished?
