I did that exact thing with an F-16 I built. It was finished as an adversary/aggressor which is for war gaming and only carries dummy missles on wing tip pylons. I loaded the plane with rockets, bombs, fuel tanks, etc and called it “what if”!!! Lol

OK, back on topic guys 😉

So, made some small progress. Still busy fixing the fuselage but man that really takes some time. And for some reason there seems to be a seam which I just can't take away. I am giving it one more try 😉

But did some painting on the interior. Next some varnish, decals and washes. Then that bit should be done... well I thought that was the plan but seeing a close up on camera I noticed that there is quite a bit of touch up needed. And I guess I need better prescription for my glasses 😃

Oh, and I bought these aftermarket canopy masks and 1/72 scale figures. Man, they are tiny. But I have this idea for a small base with a captured Italian Cant on the beach in Sicily and one or two british soldiers on patrol/guardduty.

Hope to give you another update in the next few days!!

Remember with fillers, they shrink as they dry. They may seem to be dry, but they can still shrink back. I usually leave perts a few days for the filler to shrink before sanding. AND they still shrink  sometimes. There's no rush on this build so maybe multiple applications of filler will get you there in the end.

The other work you've done is looking excellent, keep up the good work.

Looking great and the aftermarket items should lend a nice story. Sorry about highjacking the thread!

nice work thus far Remy !

Keith don't tell me you wouldn't want to take a ride on a Lancaster bus or motorhome ? [biggrin]
I have an old Airfix 1/72 Dambuster, it's a tempting Scratch'n'Bash for me .. [wink]

Yeah, I know the problem with shrinking. I have actually thought of using Milliput but I dont know if thats easy to work with. Anyone any experience?

For know Ill see how it turns out since this is my third attempt in filling the final bit. Maybe third time right? Or fourth time... fifth... sixth ....

And thanx for the positive feedback! really enjoying this GB so far!

There are a zillion ways to fill seams. If you take sprue and hold it over a candle till it gets soft enough, you can stretch it into a very thin “string”, cut it to length and glue it in the seam. That won’t shrink!
Another technique is to put a small amount of CA glue in the seam line, then sprinkle baking soda over it. With that technique you must sand it before it goes rock hard. When it’s totaly cured, it’s harder than the styrene and during sanding you will lose surrounding styrene before the CA/baking soda mix gets sanded down.
If you have any strip or sheet styrene, you can cut thin slivers and glue into the seam line, then sand.
If you have a seam that is open, you can glue pieces of sheet styrene directly into it, let it dry rock hard, then trim the excess and sand.
I should have looked at your pictures first and reminded you to put a line of tape on each side of the seam line to protect detail before you sand the seam. You may have done that. Saves some rescribing later.
Hope all this makes sense? I also think you are doing great with the interior!

That is some great advice indeed. I did know about the masking but for some reason I always forget that! Thanx for reminding me!
