  1. This is all fantastic stuff, it's very entertaining to read about this magnificent build, the added bonus is all the photos and information that is packed into it, I don't for one moment imagine that I can emulate the skills and techniques shown but it will help me build a better model. Keep up the great work Cheers Dennis
  2. Many years ago I built a pair of 1/32 scale Revell P-47's as SEAC aircraft, a razor and a bubble top with the help of some Rutman resin parts so it will be nice to see another one built out of a more modern kit, will follow along. Cheeers Dennis
  3. Fabulous, just fabulous, I'll be stealing as many ideas as possible from this thread when I build mine, probably (definately) not to the same standard though. Cheers Dennis
  4. I could add to my list the following: Handley Page Halifax, we have a Lancaster, a B-17 and a B-24 so why not. Short Stirling, see above Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Handley Page Hampden And of course the Wellington I probably won't mention the Armstrong Whitworth Albemarle even though it did in the end do some serious work. Cheers Dennis
  5. That engine is a work of art. Cheers Dennis
  6. Thank you, it was a challenging build but very satisfying in the end, and yes PCM certainly put out some very impressive subjects that no one else had kitted, a lot of them are still the only kits in town. Thank you Mike and yes it did turn out nice in the end, apparently the Air Ministry was not impressed with Hawker designing their own wing tanks as they had lots of their own tanks in production. The Reggiane will I am sure be as challenging as the other PCM kits and I have re read a few build threads so hopefully I will be prepared for it. I have quite a collection of their kits and it is no use leaving them mouldering in the stash, better to build them. Cheers Dennis
  7. Once the Spitfire is out of the way I think that this will the next project while I am on a PCM roll. Cheers Den
  8. Thank you Andy but I must crack on with it, the sunshine is luring me outside. Yes I must start doing that, strangely I always have a pad on my desk but I have not used them for modelling. Thank you very much Maru, comments do spur me on to actually get back at the old modelling desk. Cheers and thanks Dennis
  9. Lots of great modelling going on here and lots of useful information for my future build. Cheers Dennis
  10. That looks great, those gun bays are so neat. As to the polystyrene glue, simple mistake to make when you use it all the time. And it must be love for you to follow the "sweet" girl, she's probably not trying to kill you. Cheers Dennis
  11. This is looking great, it reminds me that I really must build another Zero, the last one I built was the very old Hasgawa kit in the 1980's. Cheers Dennis
  12. Thank you John, it just did not look right to me but I'm glad that I spotted it in time, it would have been nasty to remove the mask at the end and spot it. Cheers Dennis
  13. There is some great work going on here, disaster, recovery, and there are some very fine modelling skills on display, I cannot emulate those but will save this build to help me when I finally get around to building mine. Cheers Dennis
  14. As am I despite having more PCM and FLY Hurricanes in the stash ! Cheers Dennis
  15. Thanks Mike, I forgot to add that every time I do something to this one I keep muttering about not forgetting to drill the gun camera and fuel cooler holes in the wing roots a simple thing that I have forgotten on other Spitfire builds so that also got done. Gun camera, taped over in this case. Fuel cooler And done Cheers Dennis
