G'day again fellas this is another revisit to the hobby and site. I've been getting other things sorted in my life, you know? Annoying priorities... Anyway I'm now comfortable spending a few hours on the bench here and there and the mission is to build, at least, my Tamiya "Top 5" collection.



The kit I'm starting with is actually a kit I spotted in my LHS a few years ago and the box detail amazed me to the point that I got back into the hobby. I did buy that kit eventually and now I'm going to build it. So it does hold an emotional connection if there can be such a thing in our hobby.
Anyway, I'll bang on some more during the build.
I'm doing it OOB, no need for extras with this beautiful kit.



















There we go. Up and running (walking, limping, whatever).

Haha, thanks Mike. Good to see you around too, I'm trying to catch up with all your work too, I'm trying to get email notifications working again as something has gone awry somewhere (Genessis models emails going straight to junk, Grrr). And yeah Daniel, it certainly is. Should have some update photos tonight hopefully. [smile]

Howdy Fabian, good to see you still around too mate. Thanks, yeah it's a cracking kit, and just a bit of an update the initial stages are going well, albeit slowly, as I said it might be. I'm about halfway through the cockpit stage ....well maybe a quarter counting weathering etc. but it's going well so far. I start a ten day holiday tomorrow and I've been preparing for that so no pics uploaded yet, but there will be soon.
Thanks everyone for your patience ... Dare I say? Watch this space? Lol

Fortunately, with all of the entries in this GB, Genessis is watching the work for me and sending me the updates. My mind is a bit of a haze sometimes. Besides, I'm a slow worker myself!

I remember this thread, but don't remember a finish line. I checked the forums under WWII airplanes build and final heading but did not see anything by SimonD. I don't think that anything has been posted on this build group since the initial introduction to his plan. I did not search SimonD profile for posts by him as a way of double checking. This thread was dated in 2016. Best wishes RongUSA! good to see you here.I am in Chattanooga, TN.
