Well it's started Closed up waiting for insertion of scratch build items from underneath . First front IP from I-16 uc door ( foreground )

The fit was surprisingly good considering the age of this kit.I won't be overly detailing  Pin marks will cleaned up

Thanks for looking

Finally got around to some modelling . I decided to add the crew for two reasons 1 To cover the ejector pin marks and 2 Because way back when it's the way it used to be. Basic detail painting is done Two IPs made from scrap . The parts fit is good so far for kit of this age. More soon . Thanks for looking

I'm enjoying this, I've got a couple in stock, one to do as you are & one to convert to a Mk II with a spare Blenheim engine. Its good to see how nicely it goes together.

Started applying decals The kit ones are showing their age being difficult to remove from the backing paper so I managed to find some replacements in the decal stash.Hopefully a combination of both should work . More soon Thanks for looking

Bit of a thread resurrection here, I haven't been as active over here as I was thanks to the PB shenanigans & the the upgrade hassles the site had, coupled with a hellishing hectic year or two & you get the picture, so I'm having a catch up & pleased I caught up with this, it came up pretty good. A hint that may help with your canopy is to use white glue on it, its good for gap filling & if some goes to far it will dry clear. I attach my canopies with white glue, a clean up with a damp q-tip & when dry, any filled gaps can be touched up with your top colour paints.

Steve.
