Hi all, disaster has struck. The Victor has taken a nose dive compliments of the cats. Don't worry they're still alive :smiling2: ...but the Victor is shattered. My fault for leaving it on top of the glass cases where the cats like to climb.
Finally a kit that I can say that I will throw into the bin... those with weak hearts kindly turn away.

The tail has gone flying and needs searching.

:crying::disappointed:

That’s a real bummer. Unlike your cats, I’d missed this one. Doesn’t look at all salvageable does it.

Hi Richard
Poor old Victor. It's had a pretty chequered life and finally goes to the great airfield in the sky. A real shame as it was looking very good.

Ouch. That must have made quite a crash, if it split the whole fuselage lengthwise …

It had already done a nose dive once and I thought ok put it back up and will try to salvage it but the second time was a real splash...no hope now.

Cheers,
Richard

Don't you just hate that when it happens? Can't count the drops I'm responsible for. Learned early in life that trying to catch the drop only does more damage, to you if it's heavy or the drop if it's delicate.
