  1. Well I’m just about done with all the major construction and have come to a decision point..... do I rivet the airframe or not. I will think about it over Xmas as I don’t think I will get any more modelling done this year so it’s a decision for 2020. The turrets when together ok though there was a bit of trimming involved to get the internals to fit. It’s a real shame about the seams in the wrong place but after a while you don’t really notice anymore. wishing everyone a very merry christmas and a happy new year Matt
  2. Made a start on the turrets... avoiding the clear bits for now
  3. Thanks Andy, yes the Eduard cockpit looks ok, frustratingly it’s not exactly the colour I would have liked but for what will be seen it will do the job of making the cockpit look suitably busy when the canopy is on. If and when I do another I will probably go the air scale route as you are doing on your great build. Talking of which thanks to your tips in your WIP thread I’m benefiting from your experience and have omitted all the interior bulkhead detail aft of the waist positions and have considerably trimmed the over complicated structure for the ball turret along the fuselage spine so no fuselage fit issues. Im really liking this kit, but wish that HB had saved money on some of the interior pieces that won’t be seen and invested a little more in the turrets and engines. I shouldn’t really complain as others have said we have a 1/32 B24 to enjoy! cheers Matt
  4. The interior is done with the exception of the windows which are still to go in. I’ve only really painted what will be seen and even then I think that is wishful thinking in the nose and waist Gun position! Fuselage join next and then onto the wings. cheers matt
  5. Thank you Kev and all at LSP. I had completely forgotten about the raffle so this was a really nice surprise! cheers Matt
  6. Quick update as I have managed to get some paint on the cockpit. I’ve included some seat belts from my spares box and I’ve have used the Eduard pe set which looks ok but think the green is a little light, but as the cockpit will be quite dark with the canopy on I think this will be an advantage! cheers. Matt
  7. Hi Tom, good to hear from you and glad to have you along for this one! Cheers. Matt
  8. Thank you for the link, great info. I really like the cocktail hour artwork and is probably my first choice at the moment. Though the different nose turret and lack of a ball turret may be a deal breaker!
  9. Hi Ron, thanks for the info... I knew it was too good to be true! Looks like I will be getting a set of True details resin wheels for this kit! cheers. Matt
  10. Hi Andy, I had heard wheels were an issue! I’m using a set of Eduard B17 resin wheels I have spare which I believe are ok. And I got the true details resin wheel set for the B25 which has 2 nose wheels one of which I will use for the B24. I’ve not tried it yet but I’m hopeful it will work. cheers matt
  11. Hi I was thinking of either one of these from the new profimodeller decal sheets. cheers matt
  12. I have already started the HK models b25 and I don’t generally build more than 1 kit at once. But I was sat in my modelling area and the big b24 box caught my eye! You know what it’s like, get the box down, study the artwork. Open the lid and look at all the plastic, maybe get a spruce or 2 out of their plastic bag. Perhaps snip a part or even 3 off to see how they fit and before you know it the Tamiya extra thin is out and you are building the kit! This though is going to be a long term build, the plan is to get as much of the major construction finished as possible and then rivet the whole airframe. I’ve never done this before but when compared to my b17. It really seems to be needed in such a big kit. Cheers matt
  13. Nice choices! Good luck with your builds! Cheers. Matt
  14. Good luck with it, Please post a picture or 2 when you are finished. Cheers. Matt
  15. This has been on the back burner whilst I was building the hellcat, but had time to do a little painting over the last few nights. I’m learning a lot and having fun. Cheers. Matt
