So this is next on the bench, Revell HE219. I know it has issues and I will do something with the landing gear. I have a set of HGW belts ordered for it. I'm not sure which one I'm doing yet

Soooo these arrive from the Czech Republic today they worked out cheaper direct including postage than buying in the UK. I liked them so much with the tempest I'm addicted IMG_20181024_190458.thumb.jpg.4efee4df15768d0cacf23ede64ccc97e.jpg

more progress on this, the front office is now done and I have the fuselage closed up the whole thing is now drying fully before i do some more. I had to create some imaginative ideas to get 90g of weight in the nose so made a mould from tin foil filled with melted solder as can be seen with the big lump that i epoxied into the gap between the cockpit and the main spar P1060572.thumb.JPG.08bc97f898989391e2fb09d89368caee.JPGP1060573.thumb.JPG.71f4e0ff5e54b354e8394d072d368617.JPGP1060574.thumb.JPG.2b567a9bf00a3357ed914f5aa03ce3c6.JPG

Nice pit, Grunhertz and a lot of the fine work will be seen, because of the big glasshouse.

Cheers Rob

One good looking front office and a very creative way of adding the nose weight.

Keep ‘em comin

Well a couple of things firstly what looks like a great idea by having top and bottom panels separate means having to fill them along the seams so double the cleaning up. Also the armoured glass doesn't fit in the canopy so this needed lots sanding down to make it fit. I then started the wing assembly and I could then see how bloody big this is. IMG_1502.thumb.JPG.bcb51357208c81a5891eee804e1544fc.JPGIMG_1504.thumb.JPG.dbfb5b68e307aade6a29f5e4df84c768.JPGIMG_1505.thumb.JPG.2a509f22def03b4a69c7786c43809b66.JPG
