This is looking amazing! I'm jealous with all the details you manage to fit in. I think it is time to get a bigger place so I can move up from 1/72nd scale! [smile]

keep up the good work.

Seth I was just checking out yours and thinking "holy crap look at the size of that!!!" I'm falling in love with 1:32 fast! But I'm still in awe at the work that's done at 1:72. And I still have plenty of them in the  stash.
You gotta try 1:32. Maybe I'll show you how to store them. Easy. [wink]


And thanks btw, it's a really enjoyable kit to build any Stuka fans out there. Having a blast. [smile]

Thanks Neil. [smile] I've just woken up here, and am catching up on all the new "competitors" in the GB.
Good to see you on board and am following yours with interest. No doubt it will be a pace-setter. [smile]

I've actually pulled a couple of pieces off the engine. It's missing something very noticeable, I think their fuel or oil lines. I'll be scratchbuilding them in today. Painting the base coat on the cockpit, and start to get this thing looking like something. I've gambled a bit on the weathering, hoping that will pay off. Time will tell. But no photos until it's complete and I'm satisfied! haha! Yeah I'm chicken. [smile]

I have added a bit of scratchbuild to finish the engine block off, although I may play around with the colours a bit more. Not sure yet.

This is my reference. What a gorgeous engine circa 1935!


I added some fuse wire to the existing plastic pieces. They went together pretty well I think.


On the block.

Thanks Fabian, couldn't get into it today, was fired up to paint the cockpit, but wasn't really prepared, as in, had other bits to get ready for paint too.
No hurry, I did a little bit but it was 40 degrees here today and the heat was draining my creative urges. lol So I thought best to give it a miss dare I fall into a state of mediocrity. [wink]
Plus I was just slack. lol

The engine does look great Simon, and it's these little details that you are adding that will kick it up a notch. And again, neat work with the glue, not a stray drop anywhere !

40 degrees ! I can't remember the last time it was that hot over here, oh wait a minute ! It's never been that hot over here, the roads melt in this country if it reaches the low 30s lol.

According to my weather app, it's a toasty 8 degrees here at the moment, now where's me budgie smugglers

Thanks mate, I really shouldn't be complacent and had a heap of hoses and and wiring and stuff. At this scale it does lend itself to some nice scratching doesn't it?
You in budgie smugglers? Can't be any worse than me walking around in me boardies. Lucky I don't degrade the planets aesthetic appeal by appearing publicly. Hotter today. But it's not 6am here yet so I might get a coat on before the heat beats me. [smile]

And I'm applying super glue with a single strand of fuse wire now. I'm not using the applicators at the moment because the glue they're attached to is crap. It's virtually ruined my radiator after it cured. Dries horribly. I may use some Zap a gap to sort it yet, I haven't picked it up to sort. I might put one of those applicators on the zap a gap bottle, but it's a bit thicker so it may not flow as well, still that's not a bad thing either.

Let the summer arrive here at the southern side of Spain (Guadalquivir valley) and I will post photos of street thermometres reaching near 50 degrees. [biggrin][biggrin] .
 Don't you believe me?? When the next GB begins we will talk again about the warm and the hot... [biggrin][biggrin] But I must say that until I know, Australian summer is really suffering too.

Simon, your skills are light years from me.... Amazing, awesome.... [eek][eek][eek][eek][eek]

Very very very nice job.... I am really impressed!!!

Thanks muchly Worso, I still have some ways to go I think [smile].
Yeah the highest I've had here is 47 (in the shade). I don't know what the street temperature is, but you can't walk on it. lol

Wow what a fantastic build so far Simon, I've been very busy and I'm just catching up with the group build. Looking forward to seeing this done with all that PE. Nice one.
