    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    OHHHH........now i can see the issue. I thought the frosted turret was the rear turret!!! Yes now i see why theres an issue. I was looking at the tail turret as thats what the War Goddess has in its nose too. I need another tail turret!!!

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    I am planning to cut the clear part away from the frame and then mould that. Might work , might not. I have nothing to lose really.

    My opinion on the Lancaster from HK Models

    Just a thought , but you do know Airfix have stressed skin on the Typhoon. WNW wont be pioneers.

    My opinion on the Lancaster from HK Models

    Yup great review. I have said i wasnt impressed with the kit , BUT I actually looked at one and ended up taking it home. My biggest bugbear was the wings. Why slide mold wings , why not just make them in halves?! Well i assembled said wings today and now i totally understand why. Once the inserts are in they wake a really strong wing that is very light. Its actually a really well thought out kit. It has issues yes but nothing really bad. From now on i will look at a kit in the flesh and not judge it from photos on the internet. A friend asked me if i thought it was worth the money and to be honest i couldnt answer. To me yes , to others no. I didnt bat an eyelid at paying more for a bandai millennium falcon so who am I to ask?!

    Dremel type tools

    I have never heard of Proxxon. I was looking at the range , they look great. Good prices too. The real reason i bought the dremel above is because it had a chuck and was only £40. Have you guys tried the Proxxon sander?

    There are much better demos on youtube , this was just a random one from google.

    I just bought one of these. It has variable speed AND a proper chuck. I was a bit sceptical at first as it doesnt seem to have much torque , but i tried drilling at low speed on platic and grinding and it works great.

    Deagostini Millennium Falcon

    Considered it yes. It’s not out here in the UK yet I don’t think. The mount is advertised as made for this model and sold by deagostini but yes it is really just a tv mount.

    Deagostini Millennium Falcon

    Thanks Guys. Its 32" long and weighs 11Kg! It was a model i bought that someone had built. I stripped it back , added some 3d printed parts to and repainted, even so its still taken me a month or two to get to this stage. Lots of late nights , weekends here and there. I have built alot of Falcons , including 2 other deago ones in the past , but this is my ultimate one. Its also the first model i have used oil paints on for the streaking and i must say , they made the world of difference.
