  1. Great progress you have made Tom. I have the same transparency to use on the Manchester. Will you keep the framing as moulded or will you alter these?
  2. Great progress Nick. The P-40 used the Curtiss Electric prop, but don’t tell
  3. The base looks great Jeroen. Especially when sprayed RLM66.
  4. Progress is slow but sure. the radiator faces gave been completed ready for the wing to be assembled.
  5. A bit later than planned but the basic interior green and black coats have been sprayed. The scene being looked on by a piece of self canvas torture.
  6. Ok then, some more sticky work. The plan is to get the airbrush fired up this coming weekend.
  7. The pile of items soon to be airbrushed interior green keeps growing. The seat is nicely detailed and in the nacelles even some of the Peregrine engines can be seen. The spent cartridge container and guncamera housing are testfitted. The tailwheel mounting fits nicely too.
  8. It is good so far but the instructions are rather vague as how certain parts need to be fitted with respect to each other. But hey, that’s modelling isn’t it? Some work being done in the cockpit. Detail is quite nice.
  9. Thanks Hubert. So far I like this kit and will build it out of the box. When I build another the flaps and slats will be lowered which means some scratchbuilding. But not this time. The lower insides of the radiator intakes have some rivet detail. I like the way SH rendered the complex wingspar/rib detail between which the radiators will be inserted. Take care though as the instructions are sometimes not very clear.
  10. I mentioned earlier that when this kit becomes available I would drop everything I am working on. Yesterday was that day. Having started with sticking the major parts together with tape, I must say this is a typical SH kit. It looks short run in places but detail is very good. Cleaning up some of the parts is needed but nothing major so far. I let the pics do the talking.
  11. It was Peter, but hey that is modelling. Until drawings are available I continue work on the interior. Didn’t have much time but made the heater duct (thick sprue) and the basic flight engineer panels. On top if this base the panels will be fitted. Will add cable bundles etc. So that a hint of “busyness”can be seen through the armoured door.
  12. Hope you do as this kit, although ancient, can still be made into a nice model. With some work excluding the dog. Here is mine.
  13. I thought I was smart, well,…. I’m not During a rare visit to the office I tried to enlarge my 1/72 drawings by 225%. As I didn’t have any parts with me I checked by eye if the scale was right. When I got home it wasn’t. I tried to use the drawIngs for measurements but they are inconsistent. Oh well, back to the drawing board.
