  1. Now THAT is very useful for diorama's. Nice one Fran.
  2. Hi Erik. You are of course correct. The model depicts a mk XVI and to be correct the wings should be radically modified to represent the e-wing with the inboard .50 and outboard 20 mm Hispano cannon. As this was a commission build the client wanted the model out of the box. I was happy to oblige. Cheers Cees
  3. Sorry for the delay Michael, That is one fine model you built. Love the used look. Amazing how you seem to build many different models at the same time and keep a consistent high quality. Well done!
  4. What kept you Good to have you back building armor.
  5. The aileron just needs a coat of Mr Surfacer 500 to blend everything in and then it's done. The ailerons will be attached to the wings using steel rods to make a very stiff bond as glue and Tamiya tape do not hold very well. And this lessens the risk of glue clogging the joint. The same will be done to the elevators which have broken off three times already so drastic measures are imminent After the ailerons have been fitted I will start on scribing the various inspection hatches and panels, so the wings are really nearing completion, and then it's time to have a look at the engines and props. The latter are massive regarding span and it will be difficult to adapt excisting parts. Hmmm.
  6. Amazing scratchbuilding, I especially like the way you break down the complex structures into simple shapes.
  7. Me too, getting there but work concentrates on the wings and tailplane at the moment. Yesterday was a setback for the project as the starboard elevator cracked and had to be repaired. The hinges are very weak as well so I have to rework them and mount them with metal rods to be safe. Sh*t happens, but that is part of the game.
  8. Hi Tom, I understand what you mean. These projects can get under your skin. It's a matter of motivation ( or the lack thereof). The first outboard nacelle has at least been started so another step towards the fun part. Hang in there. Cees
  9. Some more progress. The rear ends of the nacelles are nearly finished. I put on some Mr Surfacer 500 to smooth things out. The interior of the nacelles have been painted black to prevent the light colour of the printed plastic to show up. Getting there.
  10. Ahhhh. That explains it
  11. Compared to the Spitfire that cockpit sure is deeeep.
  12. Did the parts scrub up well Jeroen? We thought you would like this build Graham. Cees
