...well, I've come in through the stage door, and am sitting in the wings. I've bribed the usherette to keep me supplied with popcorn......

Sat waiting.

Hey Lt Andy,

Nice kit you have brought for the GB!
Will this be a OOB build of are you planning to add some aftermarket parts?

Evening Andy,

Welcome back to the living and good luck with this critter. Not knowing squat about these multi wing thingys, I am certainly looking forward to your build as you will certainly enlighten us all.

I'll grab a seat between the build and the fridge if you don't mind. Multi wing thingys do tend to make a man thirsty. Cheerio Lt.!!!..............

A cracking choice of plane. Will sit amongst the rabble and look on with admiration. Good luck sir!

Hi Andy,

Could not commit to this build, silly season starts this week, lemmings arriving to throw themselves in the sea, for the next 2 months.

Will sit by Ron, and nick some of his popcorn!!

This would have been my choice to build, so will tag along. Good luck.

Quite strange that a dinosaur like this one made it through Bismarcks AA guns and managed to drop that torpedo ey teeth 2.

Nice subject you chose mate. Looking forward to see it fly again!

Good evening all and thanks for forming up in the Mess in an orderly manner. I haven't been idle, just away doing another course so taking this away actually saved me a few quid in the bar. I have made a start but the pictures are on my phone and are not of the best quality. Will get them downloaded and cleaned up and then hopefully post up progress tomorrow.

Chin Chin,

Looking cool so far I have this one and the Roden Sea gladiator in the stash and would have chosen them but you all got there first ?,

But I am happy with my tri of choices , my late step father in law was a Chief Petty Officer in the FAA Aircraft fitter

And one of the last to step off the HMS Ark Royal before she rolled over and sank on operation pedestall (Malta Convoy) where they also lost HMS Eagle the day before , he was full of stories and tales about the resilliance of the old Stringbag which he worked on how one landed back on following the Bismark attack and when the plane caught the landing arrestor wire and the engine carried going straight off the front of the ship without the rest following
