  1. Thank you for you kind words Hubert! Well lucky me, these Preiser figures seem to be right 'on the money, as far as I can tell. At least their height is almost identical to the CSM pilot's. I was surprised that they would even fit into the wicker chairs... Cheers: Kent
  2. Hi Hubert, just wanted to make sure, I didn't mean any offence. I just cannot keep my motivation going if the project hasn't got some kind of angle. Believe me, it's a bit of a 'curse', I've been trying to 'shake' it off repeatedly, without any success... In fact the 'angle' is expanding. Happy modelling: Kent
  3. New miniseries: Catch-22 This is just GREAT, can't wait to get started... It makes me want to build another B-25J... 'Catch' this really cool trailer... Cheers: Kent
  4. That's actually a good idea, it's getting awfully long these days... At least, I will have to put on my 'thinking cap' to come up with something. I'm just not an OOB kind of guy. Kent
  5. The 'Monster' has landed, thank you LSM + HK Models! What am I supposed to do now? Cheers: Kent
  6. So, a little update from my bench... Doing some fiddly work on the scratched cockpit for the Aeromarine Not nearly there yet, but slowly, I'm working out where everything is supposed to go... Happy modelling: Kent
  7. Got some of the new plywood wood grain decals Proper Plane. They look very nice to me, not 'pixelated' in the printing, like some of the others I've tried. It remains to be seen how they will behave when applied, but I'm already looking forward to be using these in my builds. Thumbs up, Proper Plane! Cheers: Kent
  8. Hilarious! I may have to resort to just that, or even better a sunken Donald Duck tank... Cheers: Kent
  9. Thank you much LSM and Neil of HK Models, this is just great news. Congrats to the other, participants. It's now almost tree years since I finished the 'Old Ironsides III' (June 2016) as a tribute to the Author of Catch-22, Joseph Heller. The finished diorama of the Alesani Airbase in Corsica... Now the Lancaster is a Giant compared to the B-25; and will have to put on my 'thinking cap', in order to come up with an idea on how I will 'tackle' the display of this 'Monster'. Cheers: Kent
  10. I would be interested, but time is an issue isn't it? Less than a month to finish anything (6th June) Cheers: Kent
  11. Without wings? Looking forward to this... Cheers: Kent
  12. Beautiful birds, right up my Alley! Great. Cheers: Kent
  13. Very nice figures Fran, almost too bad I'm not into modern 'blowtorch' aircraft...
  14. Nice try though, you never know...
  15. Wood grain on the wings are done... The control cables are fitted for the ailerons. Cheers: Kent
  16. Some progress on the little 'Fokker'... Oberursel engine ready for installation Some of the instruments are done. Parts are beginning to come together. Thanks for looking: Kent
  17. Working on the Oberursel engine... Different stages of the engine build/detailing.. Added spark plugs and cables + scratched lifter arms... Cheers: Kent
  18. Article on the Catalina build in AIR Modeller issue 82: Cheers: Kent
  19. OMG! Some of those 'workstations' looks strangely familiar! On my bench right now: Wingnut Wings Felixstowe conversion into Aeromarine 75/Curtiss F-5-L Flying Boat... And the Fokker Dr. I 'Skeletal'... Happy modelling: Kent
  20. It's time for a little update. Been working on the wings on an off, trying to get an acceptable finish before painting. So I'm starting to add some wood grain to the spars and ribs, keeping it light. I intend to use Uschi von der Rosten veneer decals for the leading edges of the wings... Cheers: Kent
