  1. you are a man on a mission Brian Looks absolutely brilliant - you need these rewards to keep you pushing on so glad you are back on it Peter
  2. Love this - learning lots of tips for my first bipe Peter
  3. evening chaps Hi Tom - thanks for dropping in Good question... I have a lot of the design done as I did make some for my 190, but in all honesty I can't see a way to integrate anything accurate with the HB kit - it is a bit all over the place. Maybe just a replacement panel might work, but that is a bit incongruous when is sits alongside totally incorrectly sized / aligned sidewalls & the rest.. The alternative is a full cockpit, by which time you are talking a big set which would soon get expensive and to be honest I don't think they are in any way mass-mark
  4. jaw dropping stuff Chuck... such a delicate touch - looks 100% authentic have really enjoyed this build - thanks for all your efforts in presenting it and you should be super proud of the outcome Peter
  5. quite amazing - it's like watching a magician Ben even if the parts don't work out, the learning will apply for next time and the boundless realisation of your imagination it is so cool to see this kind of thing Peter
  6. Oh my goodness, I can't possibly accept or live up to such praise , those are the kindest comments I have ever read. The thought of any comparison with my modelling heroes is really beyond my comprehension - I just try my best and set myself high standards on your behalf thank you - it is the fuel of my motivation.. so, as I said last time, I started to detail the sidewalls in which there are many bits & bobs that mainly are mini models in their own right.. starting with the R/H wall - here we have a conduit housing on the far left, a big brass ki-gas p
  7. I have two prizes to donate this year One is the new HK Lanc nose section with an airscale IP upgrade.. ..the other is the same as every year - one of everything we do in the winners chosen scale! Good luck all:) Oh, and K2 I don't want to be entered into the draw itself - I have all I need
  8. Yey!!! So good to see this back Brian - I reckon you will ace it now the hard miles are done. I am quite envious of your capacity to go back to something, as it's something I singularly fail to do... that said, i know your love for the F7F so in a way you are just stretching out the love affair ..Also interesting to see those R2800's - I did all the 3D work on them & the wheels (with the exception of the cylinders) and gifted that to HPH along with all my research in exchange for the 1/18 Spitfire GRP form - nice to see what a good job they did with it
  9. afternoon ladies Thanks Alex - appreciated! Yes, the PE I design and have PPD in Scotland make them for me, I would like to do it myself, but they make magic happen in a way I don't think I could Thanks Troy! no the Fw190 was shelved, much like the others you mention - each one has a place in my history, but I am not great at going back to them, so once a decision is made, for now it seems it's terminal... ..mind you, I count them as collateral damage as I do them and then hit on one I really enjoy every day like the Spit,
  10. I have got one I am putting into the LSP Christmas raffle Peter
  11. that 'pit looks amazing - very nice Andy love seeing our stuff in action ..also love the G version - best looking of the Ju88 variants in my eyes Peter
  12. Hi again chaps A 1/18 Charlie Brown eh, I have never done a figure (can't paint...), but I would like to try one day Thanks Derek & great to hear from you again Yes, it seems this is very much more an engineering subject than my previous builds, but that said I am really enjoying myself ..as far as cements go, I pretty much use Zap CA thin and medium for absolutely everything... sometimes, very rarely JB Weld for super strong structural joints but all teh brass, carbon rod, plastic etc is all CA.. seems to work if
  13. just so incredible Marcin, you have an exceptional skill.. I can't do what you do and I work in 1/18 which is nearly twice the size quite breathtaking Peter
  14. thanks guys been a bit busy on the Fury - much of what I started to do has been binned and remade, so while you have seen this, you haven't seen the accurate version ..first I remade the tubular framework with squared joints which was a way Hawker managed to joint tubes in this way.. here also some of the brackets are being added (with dummy ali tubes) that support the control stick / rudder pedal assembly.. ..checking the alignment again by putting both side frames together..this is crucial for everything to be true & square..
