A mate has a real one in British Racing Green, just be thankful you dont have rust to cut out, lead loading etc like the real ones.

Best of luck

Already run into that issue with mine. Short break to check other builds and rummage in the spares box for some flat transparent bits to fettle into shape

The middle of the steering wheel might be in the chrome shiny parts ?

Already checked mate but the panic is over there is a complete steering wheel in the kit on a different sprue and yes I'm a fool i know 🙄

Very nice Andy! 

Thanks mate needs a bit of fettling here and there and there's still quite a few parts to add but I'm happy with today's effort. Never been involved in a group build before but I doubt this will be my last one a very enjoyable day along with a great bunch of fellow modellers. What's not to like 👍

Brilliant stuff Andy - I spent 4 hours at the bench today and finally managed to fit two resin instrument consoles and ejection seats to my current aeroplane build - I'd need a 24 month blitzbuild...!!

 

That paint looks great - is it just as it came out of the airbrush?

Yes mate mr colour red madder thinned 50/50 with leveling thinner straight out the airbrush. No time for 2k clear mate but tbh I'm happy with the results anyway 🙂. For some reason today I've got the urge for an aircraft build and maybe a crack at some armour so interesting times ahead 👍
