Greetings from sunny Yorkshire.
Okay, going to take the plunge with a late, late entry to this group build - my very first entry to any forum so please go easy on this newbie - especially as this is also my first attempt at an full aircraft model in about 35 years as I try and dive back into this wonderful hobby rather than just admire the skills of others from the sidelines.
An avid reader of military history and biographies, I genuinely couldn’t resist the chance to help celebrate Eric Winkle Brown’s remarkable life and one of his many firsts when he landed Airacobra AH574 on HMS Pretoria Castle 4th April 1945 - the first ever deck landing of an aircraft with tricycle undercarriage
Between work and family commitments I have no idea whether I’ll be able to make the time to finish by October - crossing fingers!!!
I’ve just started getting my head around this kit and been really enjoying the research but I don’t know what I don’t know so any and all feedback or advice will be well heeded... and yes, amongst other attempts at fine tuning and detailing I will be lengthening that pesky body
(P.S. I don’t seem to be able to post linked images yet from my photobucket account - they’re all only 800 pixels wide and I’m following the instructions in the Forum Info board but there seems to be a block on the full image appearing, I’m getting just an icon - I guess I haven’t got my full clearance yet? Please can any of the moderators advise).
