  1. Anyone could point out where to buy the kit from? It was added to the inventory at hannants on the 9th and it’s already sold out. Yesterday there was still availability now that i wanted to check the cart out no more available thanks K
  2. Definitely would help out organizing my bench space and to be honest the prices are very affordable for what’s on offer, in comparison to some of the stuff i see online (i think there was a post in general section regarding a competitor product). Makes more sense purchasing from the LSP member family when they produce a similar product than putting my cash out in the market. Seiran maybe you should also link your post to the general section!

  3. Chuck thank you very much for the kind comments and thank you for checking in on the post!
  4. thank you Tom for your kind words It’s a real pleasure to be able to share the build with all you guys on here. The wood brush painted is a technique i have been trying to work on lately its not difficult just takes a bit of practice and sorts out alot of the mess that comes with oils. I like it!
  5. thank you very much Jarda for the kind words !
  6. thank you Andy! It’s a pleasure to have you check in on the post!
  7. Thank you Brian it’s always good to have you check in on my builds and leave such kind comments! the kit is highly recommended!
  8. Thank you very much for your kind words! The kit is alot of fun just be careful with some of the attachment points or lack thereof. The top cowling and tail to cockpit assembly fit needs a bit of work but overall it is a lovely kit and well recommended. You’d be surprised how relatively small the aircraft is comparison with say an Albatros! Thanks for checking in!
  9. Haven't posted anything on LSP in a while as i have been using a different platform of late, so hello again! First go at a CSM kit and i am happy to say they are very well designed. All paints either a mix of Tamiya or simply MRP colors. Wood is all brush painted using Tamiya paints thinned with MLT and using Tamiya retarder to minimize the brush strokes. All markings custom masks. Weathering with AMMO products and pigments, pencils for some of the chipping and Abteilung oils. Turnbuckles by gaspatch and of course the tubing is all from Bob's Buckles regards, Karim
  10. Dave sorry if it feel i hijacked the thread. I will probably start a new one once we get closer to starting the hph build. Sorry again K
  11. thanks @LSP_Ray! thanks @Kagemusha! the problem i meant with regards to fitting the cockpit or gearbays is i will have to cut the space out the find a way to fit the assemblies into a hollow space then have them held back against the surface. I was thinking of cutting the gear bay section out following panel lines then gluing shims on the inside of the wing area. Gluing the bays to the cut out “panel” then regluing this to the shims. I don’t know if the idea is coming across right. in the case of the cockpit if i cut out the area where the canopy is, that area isn’t wide enough for me to slip the cockpit in to glue it to the shell so i will have to find another way to get all those big components slipped into the fiberglass shell and secured in position (this example seems to be clearer). Chain drilling is absolutely fine so would be using my set of micro circular pe disc saws mated to the proxxon. This is basically the major thing that has been keeping me holding back from digging in. Kag, ill take photos of the whole carton content and post them once i am back from vaca! K
