  1. Thanks Not much to report. Just got the engine and mount together. I have closed up the fuse now but been busy at work. Paint to follow... Guy
  2. Matt, You've absolutely nailed the dark blue. Fabulous build and paint job all round - you’ve put mine to shame! Guy
  3. Thank you Its really straightforward - I think the secret is to take your time and break it into chunks - then it’s actually quite therapeutic.. Guy
  4. Thanks for the input guys, Condor it is then I guess! I’ve got the main internal components together. Quite fiddly on the resin! It takes quite a bit of thought as to the fit. Thanks Guy
  5. Hello All, This landed on my workbench the other day with the Eduard Brassin engine and Fuselage Gun bay sets. Not quite sure of the colour scheme yet, I may do a Legion Condor one as per the boxing, or I may be tempted by something different. I was hoping to find a pre war one like some of the earlier version 109’s with a civilian registration but I can’t seem to find anything other than the early War standard camouflage versions. Any suggestions? First thoughts on the kit are positive. She has very nicely engraved surfaces with all the riveting included. The Brassin sets are awesome and come in a number of bags filled with a large part count of resin pieces (the photo below is only a small selection), but having started to put them together, they really do complicate the build and are not as simple as they first seem. That said, if you put the work in, the detail will be a big improvement on the kit parts. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting some paint on! Thanks for looking in... Guy
  6. Hi all, Just thought I’d post my latest effort - the rather lovely Wingnut’s Post War DH9a ‘Ninak’. The kit was totally flawless! Only to be flawed by me Thanks for looking in, Guy
  7. Ah thanks Matt, it was a fun build Guy
  8. Ah thanks Thanks Chris. You’re on the final furlong now... If you mean a modelling vacation, then no, I’ve already started the Wingnut’s Post War DH9a - and I’m apparently being sent the HK Models Lancaster, which is quite daunting. I really want to build the Wingnut’s one so I’m not quite sure where I’m going to get the energy! Will the HK Lanc be a big step down from the Wingnut’s one? I’ve not made any HK kits before? Guy
  9. All done Build thread here: Very hard to photograph being so large... Surprising how different the colours look with a differing background... And, again, don’t usually do black & white for aircraft, but it kind of suits the aircraft... Thanks for following along, Guy
  10. Just fantastic Kent... Hats off to you Guy
  11. Looking good Chris! I found the same.. jumping all over the place with the instructions. Guy
  12. Thanks, I’ve been pressing on and to be honest I’m just about done now. A myriad of small jobs - aerial wires, clear parts on the airframe, exhaust staining etc etc takes longer than you imagine... Couple of errors. Firstly, I messed up by attaching the starboard wing too early - before I’d done the exhaust staining... regretted that. Secondly, the engine cowlings are numerous and tricky. They all fit nicely, albeit if everything inside is perfectly aligned, I’m not sure mine was so I had a bit of manipulating to get them on. In retrospect, I would have attached the engine and the cowling panels during the build and used the couple I was leaving off as masks for the painting. I hate gluing lots of panels after painting. That would be my top tip for future builders. It’s been quite a complex build. Not that there’s anything wrong - just a big, complicated model that requires some thought along the build process. That said, it’s great fun and there are going to be a lot of beautiful builds of this in the future by all the super talented modellers out there. I can’t wait to see them! I hope to take some photos tomorrow for the completed builds section. Many thanks for looking in and adding your comments and welcome advice Wingnuts Postwar DH9 up next... Guy
