Oh whoa is you!!No update, have decided to have a bit of a break, going to go through the stash of 'started but never going to finish' and what is the modern terminology 'downsize'.... Or in my parlance bin them!!! Have not lost the mojo, plus SWMBO has come up with a list of heavy lifting outside work in the garden to do - oh how I hate gardening....

This looks like a set of CAD drawings once you've primed it Mike. Looks good.Update,
Been plodding along between this and the Warrior. I now have all of the hull interior sorted, sanded, and straightened as far as I want it to go before painting. The engine and drivers bulkheads are also complete and the whole lot has been primed...

The tri-angled items are there to support the bulkheads and keep them verticle....

And the bulkheads which will be added in place once painting has been completed.

My SWMBO's list doesn't seem to end. Trying to get bench time only ends up with me staring and dosing off. I often wonder what made us get hitched in the first place...seems one sided.
Does not work JR, She always has a comeback like you do want to be fed today....Greetings Wobble.
I was lucky to work on the original 109's when they were delivered to the 22 med Reg way back in time.
Will of course follow .
Get on with it man, tell Swimbo remember you have a bad back. Thank will excuse you from all 1/1 duties.

ordersrequests - DIY projects, shopping, entertaining relatives, getting the Christmas stuff from the attic, garden jobs, cleaning her car, cleaning the windows, mending that something that has been needing work for a year or two, stopping the kitchen tap dripping etc. etc - the list goes on and on. Us blokes do suffer!
Excellent as usual Mike. The storage tubes have given me an idea 'IF' or when I get a 1/35 Sea King. Some nice Jez tubes!! Thanks for the idea!!Soooo! following on from the last update, I did recieve the said information - forget the kit and the update kit - nothing wrong with either except they are not for the IDF version...
The model has been washed in IPA, sanded and caressed back to its naked self (almost). A couple of parts were obviously broken being flimsy resin, but I expected that so no problem. The ready ammo storage either side of the lower doors was the first to get the treatment...

Not very clear but restraining straps and buckles have been added..

This is the scratched bulkhead and accessories, there is still one more box to add and the verticle pipe which once in place has a protective cover over it. Gone is the 'stove pipe' from the middle left. And just the odd nut and bolt and restraining straps to add.

Bit blurred, but this is one of two stowage boxes, still to add the seat cushions, I will try to do a better job with the photos of the completed pair.

When you look inside the left turret rear there is a rack of 16 ammo storage tubes, this is work being done with seven more to be added and the relevant 'wires' which I think loop through the nose ring of the shell. I am reliably informed they use this to hold 2ltr bottles of water.

This is the rebuilt traversing wheel, sixe is about 10mm overall.
And that as the bishop said to the actress is all I have at the moment...
