Here are the final pics,


My photography is useless so please forgive the dodgy pics, I had to take them inside as it was very overcast outside.

The white background makes it look a bit clinical, but I wanted to hide the battlefield that is my bench lol !
I did have plans for a diorama but what with one thing and another I just wasn't able to get it done.
I will get the flak gun and the figures finished one day though and use them with another build.

Pete

I'm lying in bed a little relaxed and medded up Pete but from here it looks great.
The "glass" came out sensationally, show's off your interior beautifully. Can't fault it anywhere really.
You're definitely my biggest threat. [rofl][rofl][rofl]

honestly mate, I was so close to doing it after it hit the deck lol !

This build has been a strange one for me, I bought this kit not long after it was released after seeing it get reviewed in a couple of magazines at the time and I was really keen to get it done. But I struggled with the building of it from the word go if I'm being honest.

For me all the enjoyment comes from painting and the build stage is just a necessary evil to get there, the fit is pretty good but the kit suffers from Revells shonky instructions and vague explanations of where things attach. Dropping it was nearly the straw that broke the camels back lol ! and even though it didn't turn out too bad at the end , my memory of this kit will always be that horrible feeling I had when it hit the floor lol !

Cheers for the kind comments mate, as in the last group build all the kind words and encouragement really helped me to keep going and I'm very grateful to everyone

Really good to see the wonderful recovery Pete. Love the subtle but very functional weathering and the cockpit ... Shiny, shiny ... Well done!

Good to hear from you mate, I hope things are cool your end !

Cheers Simon, there are a couple of things that I think I could have done better but overall I'm happy with.

The paint work is my favourite bit and I think it turned out pretty good, the camera doesn't really show all the subtle tones and it's really difficult to capture (it was moving it around to try and get a shot of it that led to the nosedive lol)

The canopy lets it down a little where I glued it back on, but im not unhappy with how the whole models looks overall.

Nah I'm only a threat to myself mate lol ! You have got a cracking entry in this group build and I think you set the bar pretty high with your buld and also the fantastic winter whitewash seals the deal for me.

It's a very difficult thing to get the distressed effect to look right without it just looking like its painted white ,
And you nailed it mate

So far Pete you have the "Best Recovery" award nailed down.

1st rate finish and I can't tell that you dropped it at all.

I'm torn between all of those that have finished so far. Every single one is so well done. I'm very glad I'm not judging this!!

What can I say...another masterpiece...and coping with everthing and correcting accidents during the build...it'snot just a patch you should get, but a medal for endurance where others would have given up (you can include me in that list).

You've managed to inspire a lot of modellers and painters, a true Master of the art.

Well done Pete...I take my hat off to you.

Thanks ever so much Wim

The weathering is a bit on the subtle side to what I usually end up lol !
It's not intentional as i had planned to do a bit more but at the end I just wanted the build over with.
I suppose it's more realistic like this as sadly I don't imagine that the aircraft or those brave young men (on all sides) survived for very long

Thanks Neil,

I have to admit (repairs aside) that the canopy framing is nice and crisp, it will be a while before I do another green house canopy or Bomber though lol !

I have my He-111 to paint but I've put it on ice for a while as I don't think my heart could take the stress lol

Thanks Mike,

I did dodge a bullet with the repair didn't I ? Lol

Again the standard on this group build is very high and Bobby will have his work cut out on the judging. For me I'm glad that this got finished as even before I dropped it I nearly quit a few times

You are very kind Nigel,

I don't know how it came over in my post after I had dropped it but I was far from cool headed lol, I really did have to dig deep to get myself to carry on with it and if this had been a build that I was doing before I had an online presence and I hadn't got the encouragement from you guys I'm certain IT would have been a bin bag job.

I still find it hard to take compliments on my models. Before I started posting my stuff on here I really didn't have any idea of where my level of ability was, the only people who saw my finished stuff were my family and a few friends and although they would tell me that they were good I wasn't sure if they were just being polite.
The comments I have recieved on this forum has shown me that I do have some ability but more importantly it has given me a bit more confidence and self belief (something I have always lacked in my artistic side) and given me a real boost to push myself further.

I dont know what to say in reply to being thought of as inspirational. I'm just Pete, a bloke just on the right side of 50 going on 15, mad as a balloon who has a tinfoil hat wearing skull called Fluffy and a unicorn called Trevor as friends living in a tiny villiage in the middle of nowhere and builds models underground.

Pete
