  1. Well, I'm back again... and for good this time. I need to get this done for next year, so it can go on the LSP/32ndSIG table for Scale Model World 2018... It's a lot of work ahead, but one of my favourite non-Soviet aircraft and i'm shocked I've had this for as long as I have, I thought it was only 2 years!! I stripped out some of the old work *ages* ago and have taken a photo just now of where I'm at. So yeah, a lot of work ahead... but my bench as it is as i'm writing this, scratching my head as to where to start.. wish me luck!
  2. They are indeed blue and yellow... my photo.
  3. Not so much a bomber, but a 1/32nd Dinah would be stunning.
  4. HpH do one for the Arado?
  5. I went to Telford with £510 in my pocket, enough to buy one... but sadly most of it was already spent. Gutted to say the least, I would of loved one. But I guess now I should start saving for the GIGANT......... I did but a HpH kit though, but £25's worth... in the shape of a L-200 Morava, stunning.
  6. Part #1 from Telford... more to come tomorrow as I never collected a pre-order today... 1/48th Heritage Models Aviation Grob Vigilant T.1 (resin) HobbyBoss Su-34 HobbyBoss Su-30 HobbyBoss Su-27 HpH L-200 Morava (first HpH kit and I'm WELL impressed!) 1/72nd Amodel An-10 BPK Pilatus PC-6/AU-23 Turbo Porter Mars Models Yak-40 (late) Modelsvit E-152M Revell Grumman F7F Tigercat Revell Grumman S-2A Tracker Special Hobby CASA 212-100 Book on fire bombers MRP paints Decal sheet for a Twin Otter
  7. Seeing as it's sort of related, bit more progress on my CL-215.... All packed away now till after the Telford weekend... then it's Mars time.
  8. Just in from Kingkit, a 1/32nd FLY Bachem Ba.349 Natter - Get in. Although, I'm dipping into my Telford fund, chances of seeing one there would be slim at a guess!
  9. I've a secret love for X- aircraft, just something about them and that era... superb models!
  10. We do Brian, I absolutely love them. I have a 1/33rd scale Card Model that I want to do what Peter Castle did with the 1/24th Tigercat and make the main card parts with plastic and then cover it how Tom Probert does his planking. It's not small though!
  11. No progress as such, but I did cut down my 1 meter length of 4mm steel rod and placed it through the holes once they were drilled out.... it's bloody big!! That's a Heller CL-215 to show the size difference. Can't wait to get stuck in with the Mars!
  12. It's slow with the run up to Telford, but it will be at Telford loosly put together and on show on my Water Bombers SIG table... so please come and look... Then once the shows done, it's head down time... lots to be getting on with
  13. I was expecting £600+ to be honest, and I'm gutted I won't get one, I can't see me finding the other half of the money in time with Christmas being so close. But if I do, I'm getting it... I love old US bombers, big engine'd type aircraft... so fingers crossed.
  14. Price is the only thing stopping me, I will make space for it. I will have to get Hamsters and tell the Mrs it doubles up as a tube for them to go through.
  15. I know Zactoman did it, but now no longer available.... and no one else out there? Are there ever going to be more produced, by either Zactoman, or anyone else? I'm mega late to the 1/32nd Su-27 party, but I want a new canopy for it... something i've no time to redo myself sadly, but maybe one day I will if it's the only option. Radders...
  16. Following! I can't see how this will be boring, not at all! Fantastic maybe
  17. You've done a wise move by blacking the interior instead of building up the interior. Whilst it's great, something this big will have an instant 'wow' factor as soon as you see it. It's going to be amazing, I honestly can't wait to see it in all it's miniature 1/32nd Connie glory. Top work getting the fuselage together.
  18. Ordered this from Hobbyterra last week, and I'm grinning ear-to-ear at the moment. My Combat Models vacform has now officially been boxed and stored away, I may get it back out, but I may just cut it up and reuse the plastic. It's no where near the quality of this, and if I had the two built up, I'd want them looking the same... and that's going to be tough. So here it is, in all it's fibreglass glory. Nice boxart too.... I will post more shots of the sprues as the build progresses.
  19. With Peter doing the Firefly, I'm bringing this back out. I ditched my efforts before but managed to salvage the plastic. I think once Scale Model World is out the way and I can relax a bit more, it's hitting the bench. Seeing how Peter has tackled the Firefly has really got me thinking, and it looks loads better than what I did. So, until next time...
