Well, after a short break from modelling and as earlier threatened/promised (cross out whichever does not apply) elsewhere, I'll join in this GB with something to keep these Mustangs and Thunderbolts busy. Now I know the box says G-2, but I'm building this as a G-4 which was operational in 1943. The decals I want to use are on their way to me as I write this, so no pics just yet. I've had the kit in my stash for perhaps fifteen years, buying it at a time when we didn't know as much about Trumpy kits as we do today. I'm using the Royal "we" here, BTW. To help things along a bit, I'll be adding these bits: and As I mentioned earlier, I took a short break from modelling for a trip to the south west of this massive state to take in views like this. and while having to sample things like this: It's a hard life, but someone's got to do it, though it's a pity the clouds rolled in on that day. Still, it was warm and no rain at least. Then when I got back last week, I took a look at my modelling desk. It's 2 metres long by 850mm deep and so cluttered that I can maybe use a third of it. Not good when you're building stuff like Z-M's Dornier 335. So I looked around my stocks of scrap timber ( as you can see, I rarely throw anything out ) and have managed to about double my usable space after building a set of sheves to go in the corner. Even the paint was from my stocks, hence the non matching colour . It's also helped me get my paints better organised as I now know what I actually need to stock up on, which is none of the paints that I have five of . So these are now organised by nation, plus the stock whites, reds, silvers etc in another container. The desk is not yet perfect, more a work in progress. I'm probably not alone in that. Now to get on with some gluing of plastic. More soon. Cheers, Michael
