  1. New kit ! 1:32 Reggiane 2000

    Thanks for posting, this is a very nice looking aircraft. Cheers Cees
  2. 1:5 Scale P-51D

    Thanks David, Saw this at Cosford last November and couldn't keep my eyes of the fantastic detail you created. It looks fabulous. Will you be doing a book similar to the Spitfire too? Cees
  3. Special Hobby at Nuremberg Toy Fair

    What about the Typhoon, Sea Fury and Whirlwind fighter? Hoping to see them soon. Cheers Cees
  4. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Hi Gus, Ah well, she knows me . For every luminous (radium) instrument there was also a fluorescent (intended for UV light) version, just a matter of seeking out the ones you want. Health is a serious matter. Cees
  5. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Eh no, this is just my own pleasure (just as the Hampden and Halifax cockpits, although due to size they couldn't be placed in our apartment ). The panel will be placed in the "study" and all instruments are safe. Cees
  6. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Here it is Danny, half the instruments have been trial fitted. The blind flying panel is ready but I still need some of the brackets to fit them into the main panel. Cheers Cees
  7. Snallish update, looong overdue I know but during the ipms modelling afternoon last saturday I got the itch to get started again and made the throttle box pedestal. This is totally different comoared to the Lanc as it has a bras lampswitch embedded in it I felt really needed to be installed. Took some hours but modelling and talking doesn't speed up things. Also made a start with the instrument panel. This is also completely different so this will be built using pe dials etc. After the instrument panel is finished the painting stage comes closer. Cheers Cees
  8. Scratch built Spitfire in 1:5 scale

    Welcome to LSM David, I have your book and I can say it's a riveting read. Your techniques are fantastic and very effective. Last year I saw your Mustang at the Cosford Museum and some years previous this Spitfire. Magnificent builds by a true master. Cheers Cees
  9. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Just the instrument panel, I do have full scale Halifax and Hampden cockpits though. Cees
  10. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Very nice Danny, your collections is certainly growing. I received my blank Spitfire instrument panel last week (scale 1.1), that will represent a RNethAF Mk IX. Spent some time yesterday screwing in the original instruments. Would make a nice display at home. Cheers Cees
  11. Masterclass! Although I am not that too much into stringy aeroplanes this seems to be a must have on the boodshelf. Well done chaps (and Franny too of course). Cheers Cees
  12. Fokker E.V 1:32 scale

    Wow, that Lozenge fabric looks fantastic. Very nice build and judging by your other models you are really into WWI. Cheers Cees
  13. This is coming together very well Danny. Very nice. Cheers Cees
  14. B24 Liberator in 1/32 scale...

    No, he is just shy.
  15. B24 Liberator in 1/32 scale...

    I ccertainly would like to build one or two for our museum. We have some displays covering local B-24 crashes, one of which had a huge shark mouth on the nose. One in olive drab and the other natural metal. Bring 'em on! Cees
