  1. Amazing work Peter, not looked in here for some time and it's come on so much.. Will she be at Telford? I'm only going Sunday so I'll come and find you... assuming you are going.
  2. Will be there one day only I think this year.. the Thursday and Friday I'm hunting Cypriot Mi-35's, and i'm back in work early Saturday... so if i'm not too tired, I shall be there Sunday all day. Shame about Iain, but I totally understand...
  3. Treated myself to these over the last 2-3 weeks. Sorry they aren't LSP's... I sold both my IL-76's to help fund my skydiving and when this one came up for sale I snapped it up as I regretted selling both, the A-50 is my second, been after a second for some time.. the Moss and Atlant I've wanted for years, the Moss was secondhand and 'cheap', the Atlant is now no longer produced so I bought that from Hannants.. and the hunt for another An-22 continues...
  4. This will sell like hot cakes and I would not be surprised if this was next years best selling kit. Good move HK!
  5. 1/32nd He-177 would be epic.. But I would love a Maurader, Do-17/217,.... but if it's something like a B-29, all I can think of is making one into a Tu-4
  6. Would love one... maybe nex year. Superb finish on yours.
  7. Tom, it had gone through a really bad storm.. thought it looked great though! Good to bump into you too!
  8. Neo - £170, I’ve worked out it’s worth about £500... Nichenson - Zacto models pylons and missiles. Karimb - this was bought off Facebook, I never saw it on eBay?
  9. So I sold my Trumpeter Su-25UB + resin cockpit a little while ago and instantly regretted it. So when I saw this 'lot' up for grabs, I had to bid and won it at a stupidly low price for what I've got... a proper result!! Needless to say i'm over the moon. Might actually build this one.. (and yes some single seat stuff in that lot but I may sell them bits on as I've no need....)
  10. Hi guys, I'll post some photos soon, but keeping you guys updated. The 'batplane' will be done with a B-17F kit, so this is going to be N66571 a 'G' with the right tail.. but lots of differences and mods needed to the kit, I have cut away all the bits I need to, and now working on getting it up to standard. Wings made up, and engines progressing.. just waiting for some etch to arrive from Hannants for the engines also. Really enjoying doing this... as I haven't been doing any modelling what-so-ever in the last few months... been busy with work and weekends learning to skydive, recently passing my AFF too, so just a few more solos and then I'm an A license holder. I should be able to pick up a bit more modelling then once that's sorted.... Here's a photo from Airliners of the one I'm building.. you can see it's quite modded from the old USAAF days, it was with Kenting Aviation Ltd before being converted to a tanker and used as a Photographic Survey aircraft.
  11. I'm pretty certain it won't be done... so it can go over. I'll get an update done in the next day or two
  12. @LSP_Kevin Any chance of this being moved back into the main Work In Progress... it's never going to be done for this GB, but I do have an update to do! It's come on quite a bit....
  13. This is so cool.... great project. Any chance of seeing it next to something for a size up?
  14. Me in 2019... i'm learning to skydive, doing my AFF Level 1-8 and then A License allowing me to jump anywhere in the world.. And what I'm jumping from... I thought this might be a new aircraft for me, but D-ISCO is ex- HA-ACO which I jumped exactly 13 years ago to this month also! Not a bad thing, good to be reunited!
  15. Nice work, loving this build.
  16. You've done the B-17, B-24, B-29, Halifax, Stirling (in progress) etc... and now this, can't be much left in terms of monster kits to build in 1/32nd scale? Great work mate, hope to catch up this year, although not sure when... I may come down to Southern Expo.
  17. Bought a very large tank today, 1/16th Soviet T-34/76 Model 1942 for £30, Hannants have it down as £129.99.... and it's all there, did I commit daylight robbery? And a Revell Me-163 1/48th
  18. Any chance of a similiar photo of the kit with wing attached to compare? (anyone with a kit, not just Iain)
  19. Radders

    1/32 B-29?

    Something like this in 1/32nd would certainly turn heads.. I would only build a Tu-4 (or KJ-1) given the chance.

    1/32 B-29?

    Someone produce one so I can get some 3D printed engines to make a Tu-4/KJ-1....
  21. Makes perfect sense, to be fair I was really busy when looking at the thread and never took it in properly, but now you've said that and I've gone back and looked I can see it now. Not as bad as I thought then work wise, but still quite a bit... cant wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for the explanation, Iain!
  22. Iain I've a question. When tilting this wing back, it moves the engine up, (and wheels forward slightly?).. are you needing to correcting this? Looking at the drawings Alain Gadbois posted, I didnt realise the engine it was facing up, but are the wheels OK? Sorry if I've missed this.. not seen it mentioned. Really want a B-24, and i'm weighing up whether or not I'd be up for correcting the wing...
  23. Now in the Multi-Engine GB....
  24. Any chance of moving this over for me please Iain?
