very very nice build, do you have a build thread, this is another kit on my long wish list :rofl:

Nope sorry, I started it in Oct 17 and finished in Mar 18. I just ploughed through and some guess work.

Is that rotor sag your doing, or how they come in the kit? Looks great! Superb model too... love it.

 

Hi Radders, nope the droop is the kit, for once no tentative bending. I added the exhaust covers and the lamp cover & the cockpit plates. I was tempted to put a GPMG in the door but all I could find was a 1/35 so it might of looked a bit odd, so I didn't pursue it.

Beautiful work! 

 

I've got one in my stash that I've been contemplating making a start on. I think I will be getting the aftermarket rotor fold set (once I've sold a kidney, lol) because I'm rapidly running out of room to display my builds.

That is very cool, both subject matter and your build!

 

Only one complaint though. Not enough close up photos to really admire all the detail. It's too nice not to move in close and have a better look around, Steve.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Again thanks everybody, the more I think about it and look at it on the shelf it's crying out for the hook underneath. It would be great is somebody produced a resin drop in "bird nest". I've recently finished a commission build TSR2 for the Boscombe Down museum at Old Sarum so have not started anything for 2 weeks now and I'm pondering what next from the stash to see me into the Autum.
