First of all I'd like to wish all fellow LSPers are happy, healthy and prosperous 2019 :)

 

This is my contribution to this fantastic group build: the ID Models (now Tigger) 1/32nd scale Short Sunderland MkI/II:

The plans above are laid on our kitchen table  - along with an A3 cutting mat for a sense of scale - and as you can see she's a big old brute of a kit. As usual with kits of this type, only the outer shells are provided for the main components in vacuformed plastic, and the rest is going to be made from scratch. I plan on a fully detailed flightdeck, as well as opening up the bomb windows on the fuselage sides to add some visual interest. With no landing gear bays, undercarriage or bomb bays to have to scratch, I'm hoping that a year will allow me enough time to get this completed for the end of the GB. I do plan on doing the beaching gear, and I already have something up my sleeve for the engines. John (aka Tigger) has already done me a beautiful set of transparencies, so I'm all set.

 

I'm currently cutting out and rubbing down the fuselage halves and opening up numerous portholes in the fuselage, so I'll give a decent pictorial update over the next day or two.

 

Until then, good luck everyone with their builds!

 

Tom
