If this had been a competition I would've thrown in the towel just about now... It's like I almost want to give you a medal! (but me being Muttley that's out of question ;) )

I lost LOVE your pigeon catching contraption and I think the balance is spot on with regards to the size of the hands!
The rest of the plane and the figures are a true match to the cartoon so full marks for really going all in on this bonkers GB!!! :tongue-out3:

My youngest son has just tried sculpting Muttley for me in Miliput for the first time and it didn't go so well with the clay. He got frustrated that it was too sticky so I'm currently without pilot for my build but there's plenty of time left so eventually I will have a Muttley in place... I hope... I've done an abomination as well but with a bit of practise I will make something.

It's a shame we're so spread out because it would've been fantastic if we could've had all the planes in the same photo but I guess we're going to have to rely on ye ole Photoshop for that?!

I need to get my Panther Ausf. A done so I can properly start on my plane but manufacturing the extra parts I need takes much more time than I'd hoped for so my contribution won't happen until later in the spring.

Thanks Jens and Tony. This GB as been a breath of fresh air, a fun and wacky build all along, "and I'm absolutely loving it." using a quote from one of my favorite Films. The Greasy Strangler.

Well I've got this one completed but before I post it up in the completed section, I thought I'd show you how it all works.
Zilly holds a plate of Pigeon seed out in front, then when the tired and hungry Pigeon sits on the plate of food, Dastardly pushes the red buttons on the control stick and the hands close and CATCHES that Pigeon. So simple it can't fail to work. So medal, medal medal. As Muttly would say.
