  1. First let me say I am blown away by the depth and variety of the builds slated for this GB. The year long duration will fit nicely with my glacier speed build and I think I can actually finish this one on time! To be an honest, it is a little intimidating to be in such esteemed company. I have a number of suitable aircraft in the stash for the build but I am currently sorely limited in display space. Thus I have decided to enter my Revell He 111P coupled with the HPH cutaway conversion, the best of both worlds! Neither has been commenced and I will post some photos shortly. Not content with sawing the kit in half, I have also thrown in the Eduard BIGED set, some CMK, some HGW, and some Profimodeller sets to raise the angst level. The project list is here at my Scalemates database: https://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=41942&p=projects&project=49415 I plan to finish a couple of small jobs (1/48 Airfix Sea Fury) and actually commence in February. Thanks to LSP, the sponsors and most of all to you my fellow, builders, assemblers and master craftsmen of scale modelling. Regards,

    Lanc has landed

    I just got an email from Hearn’s Hobbies in Melbourne where I had mine on pre order for AUD$414.99. They indicated they expect shipment to arrive early next week and asked we pay the remainder by the 19th. They are honouring the pre order price so for another AUD$355.00 it will be in my clutches by Xmas one expects. A little bit excited...... Regards,
  5. Words fail me. Spectacular doesn’t begin to cover the build techniques, results and knowledge you’ve shared with us. Thanks.

    Rules of the Road

    Kev, I have the Revell He111P and the HPH cutaway conversion sitting in the stash. So whilst the completed aircraft has two engines and obviously right for this GB, the conversion removes half the airframe and one engine. This GB would certainly serve as an impetus to start (and the build time frame is about how long it would take me). Would this qualify? Regards,

    Meng's Me-410 B2/U2/R4 Complete! 2/Nov/18

    Nicely done mate! I know about the kit flaws but if one didn’t, there is nothing to detract from a great build. I think the paint and weathering are just fine, not too much but not too little. Congratulations on another one in the cabinet. Regards,

    Me-410 info sought

    Gazza, For an absolute mind blowing build, look for Chukw’s build of his 410 from a few years ago. You will need a large coffee to assist you. http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/180322-me410-a-1-to-the-finish-11710/ Regards,

    Tamiya's (not pink) Panther 1 October 2018

    Nicely done mate, Dabbling in the “dark side” has a certain attraction. I like the smoke discharger work, are you going to fill them? Regards,
  15. Kent, Great stuff. Tell me, do you prepare the scratchbuilt items beforehand and just drop them in place or is it all “on the fly” (insert bemused groan here for poorly executed but necessary quip). regards.
