  1. Very nice Jeroen, The original bit of V2 really tops it off. Cees
  2. Some progress. Cutting up the Airscale Lancaster pe parts. Just remove what's Lancaster. Sorry Peter. Also been doing some further work in the portside fitting piping. And the twin controlwheels. Cees
  3. Well fairings usually were screwed to the fuselage and the thickness of the metal made it stand a bit proud of the surface. Cees
  4. I have news for you. It certainly is beginning to look like a very nice Beau. Cees
  5. Very nice review James. Graham told me that there are no surviving drawing of the Attacker and he measured the last remaining one at Yeovilton. Also there have been some reports on the net that the intakes are wider than the rear fuselage that fits onto them. I read in the instructions that it was because the intake rims are more bulbous. Will have to check first. Cees
  6. Just to be sure, the horizontal frame at the rear of the canopy is on the inside, the outside is smooth and the raised lines should be scraped away. The only thing you see from the outside are the boltheads. We have mentioned this several times to Neil but to no avail. Cees
  7. Thanks very much Check, this is what I was looking for. Cees
  8. Tubeway Army? I like the way you want to represent the cannon tubes. I did it the easy way and drilled them out and capping the inside with tubing slit horizontally to avoid the see through look. Great work. Cees
  9. Back on the chaindrill gang Jim? Looks to be a nice conversion. Cees
  10. Time for an update. I thought I messed it up as I had to correct the previous sawcuts. But when I widend the gap it made sense. The triangular wedges have been glued in and the deeper FGR2 rear fuselage profile begins to emerge. The insides will be reinforced with Miliput as the seams are fragile. Looks like I got it. I'm happy. Cees
  11. That tailwheelcompartment looks like the dog's danglies. But how on earth will you be painting this? The point and spray technique? Cees
  12. Thanks Check, I was thinking the same thing. sometimes I wonder how Frank managed his conversion as the angles are sometimes quite square and difficult to correct. Cheers, Cees
  13. Despite the Frank Mitchell articles to hand enlarging the rear fuselage it not so easy. Slowly but surely... Cees
  14. Very nice Jeroen, I can use that for the Manchester too. Want! Cees
  15. Thanks Ivan, this will be very useful when I get to the engraving part. Cheers Cees
  16. Ok. A small update. On the British Phantoms the fuel dump valves were shortened to fit the smaller aurcrafr carriers. The RAF ones had them too. Just cutting off the J-type valve, filing shorter and put the valves at a short dihedral stance. Quick and easy. Cees
  17. Thanks chaps. But it is no masterclass, just plodding along until something familiar emerges. Such as the basic shape of the fintop. Still needs details such as engraving of access panels and fairing it in with mr surfacer. The shorter fueldumping pipes to follow. Cees
  18. By your command....... The plastic inner rings of the Revell tape rolls are 3 cm in diameter and perfect for the exhaust cans although they need to 1.5 cm long but that is no problem. We come to that later. First to see how to make the deeper rear section. Having Frank's article doesn't mean it's easy. Cees
  19. Gaz, it is supposed to look very much different from the US Phantoms.
  20. Got me some goodies for the cockpit. And the intakes have been cemented in place. I feel a sanding and Milliput session coming up. Cees
