What an easy hobby ;-). But I have to admit that I'm watching more and more tank related WIP's and YouTube stuff. Definitely gone give it a shot!

The engines are lovely Fabian !

And those paints are the lacquer version of Gunze paints , so you need to thin them with Mr color thinners or cellulose, they smell terrible but are fantastic paints

Thanks Pete! I found out (trial & error) that I can thin them with Revell colormix. I guess that's cellulose thinner? But because they dry so quick it's really hard to brush paint them. The color builds up quickly :-/. Any tips for that? Maybe something to slow down the drying process?
And I have to figure out where to put some nose weight. The nose I can't use because of the transparent nose cone and the interior is filling the hole front part. Many I use the compartments behind the engines. They will be closed up and not visible when mounted to the wings. I did a little bit of dry fitting and she's a very heavy tail sitter. A takeoff dio is not very convincing with open engine panels ;-)

Props made from lead would be handy in this situation Fabian, what are you like at casting? lol
And you could do the takeoff dio with a machanic running after the plane with the engine covers? [wink]

Great job on the engines Fabian, and that metal powder looks like graphite.

I'm just sitting on the wings, on this build to see what problems develop. The problem does exist with them being tail sitters when using the clear nose panel. Some modellers have solved this by drilling a hole underneath the fuselage, at the back and inserting a crystal clear rod to hold it up for display purposes only.

The centre of gravity on this plane is suited to the weight of those fantastic engines, but is all over the place when they are made of light weight styrene. It's a common problem. (Some even glue and pin the front landing gear when displaying the model)

Great win on the GB mate, well done. Although there are a lot of Armour models being built I have a feeling that it will be Kenny's proposal of a prop bomber for the next GB.

Good luck with rest of build, keep those pics rolling in. [thumb]

Simon, have you been sniffing that Alclad paint?

I'm jealous, I want a bottle. [rofl]

Simon, your full of great ideas! Love your diorama proposal with the stressed out ground crew, lol. Alclad your say Nigel? Have to get one ;-).
Did some searching and of course I'm not the only one with this problem. This I found on a South Africa forum:


(Not my work)

This guy simply tested the amount of weights necessary to keep the nose gear down - definitely will ruins the aerodynamics of this baby, lol. No way I find enough place inside to hide this amount of metal.
Thanks for all the good advice Nigel! I'm planing to build a little dio, so the pin in the front week is the way to go for me.

I would love to build a bomber as a GB! Really looking forward to the announcement ;-)

Hehe! Funny guys. I laughed and laughed at that photo Fabian, first look I thought you'd made a lead prop!
That's a stack of weight. He doesn't have engines in but you still get the point.

I started working on the bigger pieces: the wings. With that I also put in the main landingear. Everything worked out quit easy, but the fit of the (I don know how they're called) secondary fuselage (?) on the wings is not perfect and I had you slowly glue them in steps and with some pressure to avoid big gaps. Don't no why that was the case, could be me of corse, because the rest of the kit is fitting quite nice.
Not so much to show but here are some pics anyhow... and I'm still amazed how big this plane is. I have no idea where to put here at the end :-)









Looking forward to paint here in nice black!

She's taking shape! Woot! That is still building up far better than the Revel kit lol. This is going to be a beauty.
