BigGrin Hi Walter

With the tender well on its way to being built it gives a good overall idea of the size of this beast and nice work.

Walter

It loks like you are one shipment ahead of me with your build. I am just waiting (hopefully today) for the tender sides shipment to arrive.

Its a great build although i want to paint mine and am wondering how easy that will be now i have progressed so far. i know at the outset of the build there was mention of how to break the kit down into sub- assembles near completion so it can be painted.

Hope you are enjoying your build as much as i am.

Happy Modelling

BUILDING: Hachette Spitfire Mk 1A, Constructo Mayflower

Looks to be nearing the finishing line now. The bare brass look is a stunning finish

Thanks guys!

@Phil
I will leave her in bare brass.
The U-96 is on a hold right now - as i mentioned i couldn`t build the last 6 months because of the lack of a working space.
I´ll finish the D-51 and then decide, which of my projects i`ll continue next.

There`s an unfinished Victory, the U-96, the Spitfire and also an AKAGI on the shelf - so enough work for the coming few years!
Greetings,
Walter

Hi guys!

So i`d like to provide a links to all the pics of this build:
