Superb work Ian, really love the character features on the figures. The scratch work is excellent as is the mods, wonderful stuff.

Looks good Ian. You've had a lot of modelling production lately.

Thanks Joe and yes, but a little too much I think. Now I've only got 3 kits on the go, the Sunderland, Lightning and just got to polish up the sunken Sherman. Not started the Harrier yet

Nice choice Ian, I remember buying this kit way back in the mid 50's for the princely sum of 10/6d, that was about 5 weeks pocket money for me, nice work. Cheers Derek

I love the weathering on the hull and engines Ian, great camo too and the pre shading looks superb.

That looks fan bloody tastic Ian ! The EDSG and Dark slate grey are spot on and the shading on the rivet lines is sublime , so glad youve saved them from being sanded off. I think youre just in front by a nose , I'd better get moving with the Seiran! cheers tony

It does look a lot better with some paint on Joe I was having some doubts about this build at one point

No doubts now, it looks good Ian.
Thanks Joe

It is amazing what an uplifting you get when the paint goes on and all the mess of the filler and primer is covered up

Looking very impressive Ian.Sanger have recently brought out a 1/48 Sunderland which must be massive.Unfortunately it's a vacform kit.I don't really fancy doing another one of those.
