Here's how it looks as of this morning:

Barren and kind of desolate, isn't it? 

He's out of frame but Edward is working away on the other half of the bench trying to make a diorama. I've never used acrylic water goo so this could get interesting.

So, lovely sunny day in good old Blighty, the Corsair is lined up for the spray booth, the Camel is awaiting rigging material to arrive, what better than glueing bits and pieces together outside...............

and it’s a JET, my first for 45 years............

Interesting, I was contemplating jets as well. And 1/48 scale is ideal, not too small/not too big. Pease post your build here Phil.

Cheers

I decided with the Spitfire just about done, I'd throw the leftover bits into my spares box. At that point I decided to sort the sprues out a bit. Seems I have a lot of Spitfire sprues:

I think I have enough 250lb bombs there to arm a Lancaster. And arm it with 20mm cannon too.

But oddly, almost no underwing bomb racks.

Ohhh...you are a daring man. I see so many spaces for small parts to go and never to be seen again.

:D I got away with it............in the UK you can probably count the number of hot sunny days on both hands, so they’ll not be a lot of alfresco modelling ...........

Nice Gaz, but the orientation of the front wheels isn't final?

Nossir...  not final.   Small base and figures planned. But alas my figures are trapped in Korea.  So I'm converting some Miniart figures into modern Germans.  My first black beret was made with melted sprue.

7 degrees is rather balmy, I wouldn't even wear a jacket at 7, it's -2 right now, here in southern BC ...............  THIS guy could be a Canadian...... I have done this and seen it done.......  :rofl:
