I had fun and games just attaching the Rye filters let alone a resin set!laugh. Not to sure about your comment around the tow cables. Did you say the ones in the kit were the wrong size or that you didnt receive any?. I actually replaced them with thinner ones like yourself. The tracks are an absolute joy. By far the best racks I have ever had. I added a dab of glue to each pin but its up to you. Dont forget different pins for each sideyeswink

Mr Smith

Its not only the BD's its the DB's as wellface 20. I must say I really do like this build a lot!!. Its one of my favourites in a long time. Please dont rush it for the sake of the GB. It will be an absolute joy to see it once done. How are the figures coming along?

Sorry to interject Scottie but I have been looking into this all day for my AAGB build. Emmanuel Nouaillier is a great exponent of foam board (Scottie taught him all he knowslaugh) This link will be a great help to you Andy


The section you want is photo 8 and 9. Good luck

Looking gooooooooooooood mate! With a little more work and on the tracks this will all be finished in time for the deadline. Well done mate

The only real advice I can give is to put a roof on. Its probably why all the doors are starting to rotface 20

Seriously though this is an outstanding base. The work on the building is fab. Together with the Tiger this is going to be another Scottie special. Well done mate

Hi Everyone

Simon - The highest I got was 3x magnification. Would it be worth acquiring a 5x lens? I wear glasses as I cant see far away. I model without them as I am okay with close work.

Scottie - More detailing coming up my friendwink

Peter - I am amazed you do your figure work without magnification. Have you ever tried any magnification aids?

John - Its been close to being stopped but I am doing small stages. That's why its taking so long

Mr Smith!! - How the devil are you sir? Thanks for the support. Now dive dive dive! You only have two weeks to get that awesome sub of yours finished. Also we need to have a chat about the Plymouth model show at the end of April so we can meet up for a few beerswink

I have committed the cardinal sin of preparing for the next group build before finishing these builds. So I have only a small update this weekend.

I have started on the tools. The Tamiya kit has no PE and the fixings arnt brilliant on their tools. I am going through each tool and seeing if I can improve them with PE or better moulded tools.

For example the spanner needed its clamps replaced. I compared the PE I was using for the Dragon spanner and used a PE piece from the spares box. I scored bend marks in the same place to create the same looking fixing


Then the Tamiya part had its clamps removed


A couple of wing nuts were added and the piece was put in place. You can also see I replaced the barrel cleaner for a more detailed one from the spares box. As I had no clamps for this in the PE spares it was left as


Only another 43 clamps to gocrook

Thanks for all the support

Hello JR

I was told the site had gone rapidly down hill since we joined back in 2015 mate.face 20. The only success story mate is that we dragged everyone down to our level!laughface 20

Seriously though my friend your words are very true. Great friendships and comradery have been forged over the last 18 months. True acts of kindness experienced that reinstate my faith in human nature. Long may it continue
