I have the ZM in stock but it’s only 48th. Even at that scale it’s big, at 32nd must be huge.......it will also be my first jet / fan thingy

I'll be starting a Tamiya Phantom as soon as it arrives, but for now I have a very special project on my bench that has a 9 month deadline.

Thanks everyone.   Mark hit the nail on the head.  I'll be using them to build a mobile.   It's our first so I know theres a BIG learning curve coming.   I've got 7 months left and I'm going to try and get one more big build in before then.  Either a Tamiya F-4 or F-16.

Congrats on the #1 ...

... and enjoy your modelling time until then ... by experience, it then shrinks like snow in the sun for the following 20 or more years  ;) !

Well, congratulations Tony...

From the secret pride of watching your Lady's tummy slowly growing, and thinking to yourself "I did this..."

To the sheer terror in 7 months time, as her words echo throughout the delivery Ward... "YOU DID THIS!""

You've got it all in front of you now (well, mostly in front of her really.)

My reply to that  was "IT WAS YOUR IDEA!!!"

At least after the second one. :)

It was HIGHLY recommended that we stop at two by not just my wife's OB but my father in law who is a retired pathologist. Actually, her OB's exact words were "You're done!"

Back to the bench, I've gotten a bit more done on the RB26DETT.

IMG_20200305_200859.thumb.jpg.1731dab3ffc4cb57bdc2e08af674c3cb.jpg

It wasn't as much as I'd hope to get done as I...

 

 

 

 

 

...kind of got distracted building some multi piece working tank tracks.

IMG_20200302_143923.thumb.jpg.dde1fcd7c2272260ea5a50825e476685.jpg

Three pieces per link, 95 links per side. One side down, one to go.

Carl, test fit them before saying they are done, so many time’s I’ve counted them out to instructions and found it’s two links short at the final assembly......:2c:

Good advice there Phil. I've got a couple links set aside for each for that reason.

On my Jagdpanther I ended up with the opposite problem in that they were a link too long so a bit slacker than they should have been.
