Hi all I've put the tiger tank back in the box and I have 2 1/32 kits on the go the first of which is Special Hobby's wonderful tempest kit supplied to me with thanks from Special Hobby and James Hatch thanks guys! 

So here we go not much to show at the moment but I have started in the very well appointed cockpit will  be adding to it over the next couple of weeks 

So here we go

Muy bueno, the pit is looking good and thanks for feeding the brainbug, getting me one as well, actually not for the first time :D.

Very nice start on the SH Tempest, front office is looking good and the subtle paint fading looks excellent

Keep 'em comin

Yep, that's a good start. Not a bad kit and not too many headaches. :)

Yesterday was one of firsts for me. Never worked with HGW fabric belts before and I'm impressed although I only have the shoulder straps done so far pretty much here is where I am 20180728_204303.thumb.jpg.0f0256e41e8779016fa95ecb216fa4f8.jpg

More progress today I have a ki84 hayate on the bench as well which it has to be said is a more straight forward build than this but I really can't fault what's in the box with this one

Great start on the Mk V, pit looks great. I used HGW for the first on my SH Mk V they so make the pit.......just a heads up, you may have to “ shave” the lower cockpit tubing to fit between the u/c wells and the fuselage. Mine was a bit of a PITA. Suggest dry fitting.....

Thanks guys I have the fuselage buttoned up and some filler on the seams. But it looks like I may have to buy myself a riveting tool as the seams need a fair bit of work

That's what I call a gap ;), not far from the intended one behind the cockpit. One of these moments where you hit the buy button on a riveting tool and call it a first.
But generally everything seems to align fine and it should be a nice outcome with the Tempest.

Slways a milestone in the build: buttoning up the fuselage. Fit looks mighty good.

Keep ‘em comin

Very nice recovery on the gaps. Now break out Radu’s riveter and have fun.
