I haven't paid attention to this GB until recently, and that was a mistake. Photobucket killed John's Meteor, so here are some clicks to prove that this really happened :)

Thank you much LSM and Neil of HK Models, this is just great news. Congrats to the other, participants.

It's now almost tree years since I finished the 'Old Ironsides III' (June 2016) as a tribute to the Author of Catch-22, Joseph Heller.

The finished diorama of the Alesani Airbase in Corsica...

Now the Lancaster is a Giant compared to the B-25; and  will have to put on my 'thinking cap', in order to come up with an idea

on how I will 'tackle' the display of this 'Monster'. 

Cheers: Kent

What am I supposed to do now?

Cheers: Kent

Open the box, looks at the sprues, and then decide to go mow the lawn.  That's what I usually do... lol

That's actually a good idea, it's getting awfully long these days...

At least, I will have to put on my 'thinking cap' to come up with something. I'm just not an OOB kind of guy.

Hi Hubert, just wanted to make sure, I didn't mean any offence.

I just cannot keep my motivation going if the project hasn't got some kind of angle. Believe me, it's a bit of a 'curse', I've been trying to 'shake' it off repeatedly, without any success... In fact the 'angle' is expanding.

Happy modelling: Kent

Neither did I mean any offence Kent, and I hope you did take it as such. I actually admire and am in awe of your dedication to get the best and superdetail the kits you start.

When I see you tackle a new subject, it is with trepidation, because I know you will put your magic to it, and produce an unique masterpiece. Of course, you are not an OOB kind of guy, much to our collective pleasure.

Can’t wait to see you Aeromarine conversion finished, btw ;) 

Hubert

PS: re your Aeromarine conversion. Great find with the Preiser figures. I would advise a quick check about their size, though. I had to hack a few mm off the legs of one Preiser figure I want to use on my still-in-being Gee Bees’ build. Without this surgery, he’d be a real giant ;)

Well lucky me, these Preiser figures seem to be right 'on the money, as far as I can tell. At least their height is almost identical to the CSM pilot's. I was surprised that they would even fit into the wicker chairs...

Cheers: Kent
