Hi Peter

Beautifull seat. You are master of metal. Is there any of these parts photo etched?

Congratulations

Tomasz

I can't add anything that hasn't already been said, but I feel I need to somehow express how amazing I find this. Wow.

Utterly superb Peter. This reminds me I need to speak to you about some custom PE if it's something you can do..?

How big is a 1/18th Spitfire btw? 3ft wide?

This is why I spend time at sites like LSP ... same reason I watch players like Djokovic and Federer. I'll never play like that but jeez, it's inspirational to watch. Wow.

It's just occurred to me. I had no idea that HPH made a 1/18th Seafire 47! What's you're verdict on the kit Peter?

 

Amazing start on the seat. Having worked on real Spits, your seat looks good enough to get a CAA permit.

 

Best regards;

Steve

Peter,

OK...thats done it...YOU...out of the pool, put your clothes on and go home. What... The F-7 wasn't enough to send us all into abject resignation? I give up. Give me back my aluminum...

Hi Peter
Geez! What a project and what a start. Looking forward to following every step of the way.
I kind of thought with the Tiger wearing at you, your relaxing project might be an OOB 32nd scale build.
Sure looks like I was as far off the beam as I could be
Leep 'em coming
Peter

You have GOT to be kidding us!

 

A working seat?!?? Oh wow.....that just goes above and beyond.

 

I hope that this new project helps you overcome the stagnation on the Tigercat too. It would be a crying shame to see that one remain unfinished.

 

Good luck on your new adventure Peter.

 

Cheers.

After a week, that bit is finished and I like how it has turned out..

Yes I can easily understand why you like how it turned out. The seat back held with micro rivets, simply amazing.
