    Outstanding! Glad you didn’t paint the center canopy section and that it was only a masking problem! Beautiful job Bill! Cheers Alan

    1/32 Trumpeter Me 262A-1a "Yellow 3"

    Really nice work there John - I like the attention to detail. However, given that the Me-262 is a favorite of mine - I’m still not convinced about the leading edge slats being in the stowed position. They were spring loaded and only retracted when airborne due to the force applied to them by the airflow at speed. When correctly calibrated, they deployed at a certain airspeed for approach & landing and of course the take-off. They would never be in the stowed position unless lock-wired into the stowed position for transport; but, this was rarely done as it caused problems in recalibrating the springs. However, you are doing a beautiful job!! Cheers Alan

  7. Was really sad to hear from a good mate of mine that he has lost almost his entire herd of cattle due to the drought & flooding in Australia... a sign of the modern times I guess. It is devastating to hear and even more so to experience. Thoughts go those ranchers and stock. Cheers Alan

    1/32 Trumpeter Me 262A-1a "Yellow 3"

    Outstanding work so far John - really nice! Will you be displaying this bird in flight? I was just wondering why the leading edge slats are in the closed position? Perhaps you mentioned it earlier in the thread - I must have missed it! Cheers Alan

    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    Looks to me to be another First World problem to have a kit out of dimension... In any case, it should still build up nicely! Cheers Alan
