    Tricky part of the build this Max, loved every moment of it as well! Interested to see how you build this area up as there is an aweful lot going. I dedided on making sure everything was bonded together as one assembly for added strength but the pay off was some really tricky painting!. Also Max. I've noticed after the event (as always) that John supplies lots of lovely decals/ stencils for the radio sets which I wish I noticed at the beginning of the build but never mind, to late now! Looking really good Max and enjoying each of your updates. Regards. Andy
  2. Excellent progress Chris, those nacelles are a bit awkward to get a good fit aren't they but looks like you have nailed it. Regards. Andy

  7. Hi Max, After the pain I have had with these I am tempted to leave as is, but as you said to me the Eberspachers I sent you were not that great in quality compared to your set so I think it's worth a look. I will pm you my address shortly. Regards.Andy
  8. So this week I havnt had to much modelling time but decided I needed to start preparing some of the sub assemblies ready for painting. First up I made a start on compleing the exhausts, previously I had spent ages on cleaning up and gluing the stubs on to the flame dampers which took forever as the quality of the flame dampers in my set where pretty poor with lots of air bubbles, flash and some heavy steps from the casting process to deal with. After getting a bit fed up with working on them I came back to drilling out the exhaust exits and it was not pretty as I expected with many more air bubbles coming to light. As I said, all pretty ugly so I first filled the air bubbles with Squadron Green putty and smoothed with Tamiya extra thin cement. When dry I dipped the ends in Mr Surfacer 1000 and again when dry I cleaned everything up and this is what I have now. I then worked on the wheels which are supplied as weighted but at 90 degress to the contact patch but as the 110's wheels are angled I needed to sand and angle the sit of the wheel and also remove some bulge from one side of the wheel. Also brake lines added to the assembly and ready for paint. A few tedious bits and pieces sorted this week and time to get these painted now. Regards. Andy
  9. Thank you all for your comments and support on this build so far. Pretty happy with the way this is comino togther apart from dropping the ball a little on the serial code spacing a little but hey, its done now and totally down to me for dropping the ball as John does supply the code letters as one piece decals but I cut them up as otherwise there was an aweful lot of carrier in between the large code letters. With regards to the camo scheme I applied the mottle with a heavily thinned home mix of Tamiya acrylics applied through my Iwata Custom Micron, its just such a brillaint airbrush, expensive but perfect for such work. I found the trick to getting the mottle to look random rather than to uniform was to work in one area and then move away and start working on another area as I quickly realised it kept the pattern far more random. Regards. Andy
