Ian, this is looking brilliant! The filler idea is ingenious, good to see this old kit being built and being made to look really good


Cheers, John

Looks great Ian, it is amazing what you spot in the photo you missed in reality.
Yes, and thanks Dave. I must have knocked it while taking the photos but only noticed when looking at them.

Making a base for this as you can see the lid will have the before it crashed Beaufighter on a Malta type ground the inside will be painted blue to look like the sea, and were the groove is will be some Perspex which I will put some PVA glue in places and then paint it clear blue to make it look like water when the light that will sit on the underside of the lid is switched on
