Hi all
While I wait for the correct paints to progress the Spitfire I thought I might as well get this on the bench…..yep, you’ve seen it all before by now, but here it comes……

Decals and instructions etc….

Aftermarket goodies…..probably won’t use the quick boost exhausts…going for a 617 dambuster squadron Mk VI fighter bomber pathfinder for this build….more black and white stripes…..

Starting on a forum near you soon…..

I'm in Tim. Front and centre please and with this current heat wave a nice cold one at hand.
Very welcome Jim, I’ll try to keep you awake……this has the most complex cockpit I’ve yet built, and that’s the bit I enjoy most, so looking forward to it….kit instructions start with the wings though, which is a bit weird.

Ha!! I just  KNEW you wouldn't wait until the Spitfire was finished before you started this one ;)
"Chomping at the bit" comes to mind!!
I'm in of course.... And it's also the same one that I'm doing... So,by the time I get around to starting mine, everyone will be sick of em!! :smiling3:

Lack of paint made me do it Andy…..it was start this or do nothing….and I know that sometimes nothing is a real cool hand, but not for me.

.........And swear jar at the ready too Tim???.....We'd love to hear your build, not just watch it come together..............
Not something I swear at really Allen. It’s just sticking plastic together and throwing paint at it.
If you want swearing you should have heard me trying to put up curtain poles a couple of days ago….RSJ lintel and no wood blocks to screw to equals total nightmare. Looks like “no more nails” to fit wooden rails before I can get the poles up….. :angry: :angry: :angry:

I know what you mean about the same sprue shots ! I've (literally) just started mine bur as we've all seen the sprues I shall just post initial build elements before disappearing to Perpignon for a couple of weeks! Oh, and I still haven't finished my Spitfire yet either!

Well that’s no good……take the spit with you. I mean, what else are you going to do there…

Perhaps a leetle wine tasting, some fromage and pain beurre avec charcuterie, a visit to the patisserie , perhaps some splashing in the swimming pool and an occasional bbq; - otherwise I 'ave no idea 'ow to spend my time ... :cool:
