  1. You should say that to a Dutch woman
  2. Although old the Spit still has a very good outline, it does need some upgrading regarding the wheel wells and the canopy. I think Airscale does provide an instrument panel. And don't forget to build in the dihedral in the wings otherwise it's a bit flat. I always enjoyed the PSL books on how to build the Airfix 1/24 kits (and a few other ones such as the 1/48 Lanc en B-17 and 1/32 Revell Mossie). It's a very good basis for some scratchbuilding. I once did the entire interior and learned a lot about the Spitfire in the process. Cees
  3. Hi Tim, yes had to adjust the tabs here and there as well as making sure there were no sprue attachement marks, even the slightest unevenness could interfere with the fit. Cees
  4. Strange, I built the main wells on my example and the fit (although a bit tight in places) fitted very well. Cees
  5. What a wonderful kit, muuuuch better then my puny attempt at scratchbuilding one (albeit a 0/400). We are being spoiled here. Cees
  6. I know the work is more complicated to get a truly accurate Spey Phantom but in the end life's too short to worry about that. It's the general characteristics that I think are more important. But there are more ways to skin a ca..Phantom. Cees
  7. I am working on one already, the intakes are easy but the rear fuselage is a real pain in the petootie. Cees
  8. Hoho wait a minute! Tjeezz Jennings, you don't build models and now you are doing this?
  9. There is still the substantial wreck of a Dornier DO-215 nightfighter on mudflats somewhere north in The Netherlands. A large section of cockpit skinning and an engine are on display at our museum. The rest is still out there. But due to environmental issues etc. etc.
  10. Wonderful aircraft, legendary recovery and epic restoration. My wife and I once made a boat trip on Loch Ness, the water is very stange, black and very choppy that day. You really thought something was lurking beneath the waves. While the other tourists were looking for Nessie I asked the captain about the Wellington. He was very puzzled as people are only interested in the "monster". He happend to be a diver during the recovery and had some very nice stories to tell. I was glued to his lips you might say. Great trip that was. Although I didn't have time to look around for Nessie. Cees
