Interesting, never built PCM. For that matter only ever built one Spit in all the years I’ve been modelling. OK the million dollar question……….in 32nd  which is the best Spit irrespective of mark……..Tamiya???….

Dennis, it's not that bad.in my experience.  At least the one I built went went together fairly well. Much better than their Hurricane. Definitely needs dry fitting though.

No problem Carl, my current build theme is RAF and PCM so I have three on the go, I've just finished the Tempest and the fabric wing Hurricane is in the paint shop, so I started this one. I'm getting back to basics after three Hasegawa builds.

Cheers

Dennis

Onto the bench and off in one day as the oils on my PZL dry for a while. This is part one of a strange new project, including a little dio and another kit.
The Bandai AT-ST is easy to build and very detailed. There are no distortions in the plastic and I glued only some tiny parts, the rest is only snapped together and will enable to paint the kit better.
There is no PE or resin included, but the main guns are bored hollow :D. Chewbacca will be removed and another pilot will be added later. No Ewoks were harmed through the build :rofl:.

Cheers Rob

I hated the Ewoks.  Should do a build with an Ewok being stepped on by this thing.  I found the Ewoks the ultimate insult to military men.  Otherwise....  nice work!

I gave up under the pressure of historical facts and removed the outer cannons. The thing is, I forgot the combination of colours I used to mix the filter for the rest of the plane with. It’s still gonna be super awesome, but I’ll be more that happy to build 190 after I’m done with this pesky thing.

Some nice work there, Martin.

Lucas put them in there for his kids. 

Rob, the Bandai Star Wars kits can be addictive. 

Just be careful if you use any enamel washes as they have been known to make the plastic crumble.

So cool, just last night I spent significant amount of time browsing on eBay through the selection of various battle robots and sci-fi figures. Very intriguing 

 

Martin, there are lots of cool mecha kits on the market. Kotobukiya and Bandai make a lot of them. 

Here's my Metal Gear Rex

And GUNHED.

Both are from Kotobukiya.

More chair work...   I may find weathering the fly a little difficult.IMG_0150.JPG.a203e72709d4d6500f5bd649271affd6.JPG

I already hate the standard flies that come buzzing when I am sitting in one lounge chair, so I really would not relish one the size of an eagle …

Those are sweet, I was thinking more about smaller size stuff like this

or even , to scratch build something new, like the drone from Oblivion.
