Lovely looking engine there Peter. I've finally built a couple radial engines myself and what a difference compared to most in-line or v-engines.

Thankfully I've started to get a handle on them as there's a bunch more in my stash.

Thanks Carl

And no doubt in my mind - you're got the touch - could it possibly be a flight of Corsairs are coming our way?

I'm reading and strapped in

Thanks Paul, much appreciated

Hard to believe how this simple Box Stock contest bound build has the juices flowing and the mojo in high gear

Fabulous work Peter. I'm on vacation at the moment lacking the time and a proper WiFi, but I couldn't resist to check in and enjoy your talent in action. Eye twitch and all. All the best from the coast of Mexico.

Thanks martin, much appreciated you checking in on vacation from sunny and warm Mexico. It's been freezing for a good week here on the island, way below our normal temps and we're expecting a good ten inches of snow starting tonight. Any chance you could FedEx some beautiful weather our way.

Thanks Peter!

There's definitely a few more in the pipeline, including Robert Hampton Gray's FG-1D (Canada's last VC winner).

Very nice build Peter. I love what so many of the guys do on this site using AM but it is really nice to see a kit built OOB once in a while.....I think it reminds us that this is how modelling used to be!!

 

Now all i need is my 1/32 Mossie and find a conversion to make it into a Tsetse Coastal Command bird and i'll be a happy man!!

 

Keep up the great work

Mark, much appreciated

Enjoying the change of pace and quite agree in a way it's a trip back into the 70's for me; build what's in the box as there wasn't any real after market. Matter of fact, no PC's, no internet, no cellphones and ..

yes half the fun was the trip to the local hobby shop to actually buy a kit and a few bottles of Pactra paint. Back then I was a 72nd scale builder, the kit and paint and change for a five.

Brother Bear

Always appreciate the kind words and thanks for checking in.

How are you making out with the storm? Is it as bad in your area as up here on the island

Lovely work as ever Peter - clean, spotless (although, tut, tut, not quite scratchless  ;) ) your accompanying clarity of text is a perfect match :coolio: .

 

Seeing this come together inspires me to have a crack at an OOB at some point before too long. That said for me the thought of not doing anything to fine tune/improve etc  will be very difficult, I just can’t help myself. Maybe the idea of obeying strict competition rules for an OOB class is the way to go...  :hmmm:

'How are you making out with the storm? Is it as bad in your area as up here on the island'

You mean the Winter Storm Warning Advisory?

 

We, as you, have bone chilling temperatures.  It's Arctic winds and temperatures here.  I don't understand how anyone can do it.  It must be in their blood.  Now, it's about 7 with howling 30m/h winds.  Too cold for me.  I told my wife when we landed in the Philly Airport on New Years Day (from a vacation in Italy) that when I retire I'm buying land in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

But snow-wise we dodged a bullet.  DC is on the western cusp of the storm.  Snow is minimal.  An inch in my County.  A little more East of me.  At this latitude most of it was at sea.  As it traveled north it went straight up, not following the coast, but straight up, so Philadelphia on up received the brunt of the snow.  I've been watching the Weather Channel, you Yanks are taking a beating.  Which should give you more Honey-Do List and modeling time.  No?

 

Be safe, and warm.

Sincerely,

Mark

Thanks Torben ... much appreciated. So far it seems I've done more NMF paint work then building or any other air brush work. I'm sure there will be a few more scratching here and there as even with care, way too much handling for this type of interior finish. Hopefully it won't be too noticeable when done.

While building a kit OOB with strict guidelines has it's advantages, frustration surely sets in as well. It's a daily fight/reminder not to add or change kit parts. Still a mojo builder and a lot of pure fun.

Peter
