I did promise these - the Shackleton's final photo's...                 And now on with the next big build - the Avro Lancaster B.I (F.E) Another of Airfix's New Tooling's and my first Lanc in over 35 years and compared to the Shack, she's proving to be quite a straight forward build..     ...

I think I got carried away photographing this build - this entry is a whopper photo-wise: 
 
 
 
A slight c*!" up with the paint needed some remedial action 
 
 
 
I don't I've used ever used so much Tamiya Masking tape... 
 
 
 
 
With the bomb bay doors in place - the Shack remin...

Airfix, Shackleton, 1/72 Scale and 1 more...
In between Loco Commissions, I started on another plane - the Avro Shackleton MR.2 by Airfix. I'm doing the 'A' Version which flew with 224 Squadron out of Gibraltar - ironically 224 Squadron was my Grandfather's Squadron during WW2. The interior - with the Eduard Photo-Etch parts (some of them anyway)             ...

Airfix, 1/24 Scale, hawker
As a Christmas Present to myself last year (also a reward for not actually dying – that’s a story for another time), I treated myself to the Airfix 1/24 Scale Hawker Typhoon Mk 1B. 
The kit is the stuff of legends, rumours abound that it takes a year to build - when I saw the instruction book (not a booklet), I saw why…

Airfix, 1:72, 1:48
This is a very overdue update of my blog, since about March I'd been feeling slightly off colour health-wise - I carried on doing my renaming's and renumbering's until the beginning of August.
