    Seagull from HMAS Australia 1/72

    Looks great Thommo, I have a Revell boxing of this kit in the stash. This is a great build thread for the mods you have done.

    Zvezda Star Destroyer - a new detailing project

    NIce a start Si, I wish I had the patience to do detailing stuff like this. I lose interest very quickly these days.

    Scrubbing up nicely, another quality piece of work from the Thommo Workshops!

    Any news on this sheet Kursad? Looks like you have allocated this sheet number to the new EC-121 sheet. Does this sheet have a new number?

    L/F L-1011 and 777...

    I keep a lookout for new airliner conversion sets, decals and kits. Though 1/200 is not my scale I still look out for it. As you would be aware 1/200 is not as mainstream as other airliners scales and Military types which attract a lot more attention when it come to aftermarket stuff. I have seen plenty of people 'roll their own' flap/slats sets in 1/200 and 1/144 because there is no aftermarket around. As I said above I have only seen one set in for the 737NG in1/144 which is available from Contrails in the USA and a set for the C-17 by Wolfpack. Even a search of Shapeways gives no Airliner wing/flap sets. To date, I have seen no 1/200 flap/slat sets around. I am happy to be corrected if you can find any sets for 1/200 (and other sets for 1/144)?

    None, not many around for 1/144 either. In fact, I am only aware of a wing and flap/slat set for a 1/144 NG 737 and Looks like you need to scratch build if you want to go down that path.

    Revell 1/426 USS Arizona

    This is looking great Don, I realised I have an old Revell Tanker kit in the stash and a Coast Guard Cutter as well. I might look at building one of those for this GB. I haven't finished a ship in years. You are making this old kit look like a newly tooled one that falls together!

    Engines snap-off models

    I have only had issues once of engine pylons failing and that was with a Revell KC10. I still have the model and intend to replace the kit pylon with a more solid scratch built pylon You could reinforce the pylon with some sort of rod before assembling and then pin it to the wing as per the article @crackerjazz mentioned
