Hello everyone,
I thought that you might like a look at my latest scratch build fireball X L 5 I know it is not painted but that is how my friend wanted the model to be as he will add his own touches to the model. The only none scratch built bits are the kit bits added to the rear end and the seat in the top cockpit. The model is three feet long and my friend would like me to have a go at building a bigger nose section of fireball at some time in the future.
please let me know what you think as this will help me make better things in the future.

regards Barrie ( the old guy )

Thanks guys for your kind comments, I just wish that I could have worked on one of his shows as they inspired me as they did with many thousands to build paint and enjoy the great universe that Gerry Anderson and his team built.

regards Barrie ( the old guy who saw all his shows as they were broadcast ) thats old folks

I think we can safely say you definitely got the hang of building these big kits!

Hi Steve I shall ask my customer if he will send me some photos when he has added his own finishing touches to the model, like you I would love to see her in all her great colours and with a canopy attached.
