Hi all - Back to the Halifaxes and Red Eagle is starting to look the part - all engines, props and undercart are on - just needs the interior bits and transparencies to be done, a protective coat of Future ( She was quite glossy in real life), the intakes over the engines need a paint and the heater tubes attached to the exhausts and the control rods for the elevators and I'll call her DONE!! The decals had to be painted over almost entirely with white as they cracked all over the shop but, hey, the one metre rule OK?



Hope you like it. . on to the Firefly soon . . promise Danni!!

Got one in the stash-still deliberating over blue, grey or red.

I am in awe. That is Big Boy modelling as its best. Bravo. Adios, Larry.

Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.

loud...... All kidding aside... looking fabulous, nice even looking paint finish. Now only if Bomber Command had all their bombers painted in this colour... the Luftwaffe would have been lost for words.
