Sorry to hear the waves of bad news and stuff crashing on your shores.

Hope the results bring something positive to the party..

Andy,

Don't worry about it mate. We are victims of our own success. There is almost too much stuff going on generally to keep up.

Just the GB itself has surpassed my wildest imaginations in terms of the levels of activity. I am struggling to keep up with that, let alone all the other great stuff that is going on.

You need to make sure you look after yourself and make sure you and yours deal with the important things in life. After all, we're just sticking some plastic together and splashing the paint about a bit. If there is not time to comment on everything, the sun will still rise tomorrow morning.

All the best

Speaking of engines,

Here is how the first is looking at the moment. Still lots to do but definitely getting there.

Hi John and thanks for commenting,

I've got one of the engines done so far and the second is nearly there. My only criticism of the kit so far is that it does not have the Rolls Royce Name plate on the top of the engine.

Hoping to do some slight improvements on that area generallywink 2

Evening all,

Stage 32, This is the construction of the underwing bombs. These will not be being fitted to the aircraft so I can skip ahead.

tam spit ix inst stg 32.jpg

Stage 33, I will be building these as landed with the flaps down so the parts are cut into pieces and the etch is being used

tam spit ix inst stg 33.jpg

In the picture below, the parts are laid out in the bottom half with the completed set at the top.

Stages 34 and 35 deals with the fitting off the flaps and the ailerons, (As well as the underwing bombs if fitted).

Obviously I have two airframes at different stages so the latter one will follow suit once it gets to that stage. I am only fitting the smaller inner portion of the flaps at the moment to facilitate painting without blocking the rear of the radiators.. The ailerons slipped into their slots easily with just a tiny drop of superglue to hold them in place.

Good morning chaps,

Quite a constructive evening last night with further work on the wings.

Then Stage 27, the radiators. Nice and straightforward.

Stage 29. Painting of the insides of the radiators is needed before closing them up.

Stage 31 - The ailerons. Careful movement is needed whilst gluing the two halves together so as not to disturb the placement of the steel pins holding the hinges.

Funny thing is Peter,

Mike has spoken about going back to figure painting and it has always been an area I would have liked to be proficient at. Your work here over the past few months is really making me want to give it another try.

Cheers Simon, ashamed to say it is NOT the oldest build in the pile... Maybe this year I can draw some to a close.

Thanks John, covered in dust as we speak as I do the pre-top coat rub down.

Morning chaps,

It worked.face 23 Assembly is nice and strong so I've just got to apply a smidge of filler and then get her ready for painting.

No need for priming this, just a gentle rub down of the existing paintwork before I mask up. I'm painting the tail surfaces separately for ease of masking.
