    I am easily distracted Adrian! The display and show is in November, so I have plenty of time to get it finished. I have some others to finish for a show in June though, which I need to get on and finish. I did a count late last year of the models I had in various sages of completion and the number hit 40 when I stopped counting! Needless to say I have been concentrating on getting some of those finished. Around 20 of those are airliner builds.

    That's a nice boneyard which I am certain will soon yield to great models

    I managed to do a little on this one today, clear parts prepped and attached to the cockpit.

    The windscreen part had a sprue attachment point at the base of the centre windscreen panel which need filin, sanding and polishing

    The conversion set includes an astrodome which is slight oversized in diameter for the supplied resin part.


    or I could use the kit supplied dome which fits the opening a lot better

    Some long overdue attention to the Liberator.

    Major assembly is now complete along with masking. The wheels and props are temporarily fitted to check it is not a tail sitter and fit.

    I have a set Aeroclub props from a dead Privateer build but they are a larger diameter. So I am undecided which to use.
