Now am I gonna be in trouble with the Mrs..


I feel a P51B coming on.... and this has got to be one of the inspirational stories link for a subject.

I will on behalf of our little community, start to gear up the real workers at 'Wills Tower'. I am having a shipment of Harribo sent to 'The Boys' to make sure their sugar levels are such to ensure 'the boss' gets his finger out.

Hi Paul

Yep your right, so I'm thinking a service hatch in the radiator and of course I will never need to use it then, the flaps should be quite reliable as they will only be used a few times each flight. Unless of course your flight consists of mainly go arounds like mine does. surprise

Another mystery ... if you don't have access you'll always need it....

If you do have access you'll never need it....?????

I suppose it's like visiting the boys without the haribos....

Talking of which have they get cabin fever yet and tied Richard up in the garage????

Nice one Glynn,

Just remember that the radiator cowls will be over the flap servo cover. Might pay to put a door of sorts in the radiators. As I have discovered if you can't get to it.... you will need to later!

Until it gets painted it looks like it's fitted with a training bra... so much better for a coat of paint!

Looking real good. While we await normality, anyone else managed to do a little more to their kit?

Hi Graham

I used Humbrol after using Halford grey primer, used about 5 to 6 tins of the camo patterns each. Turned out to be about £30 ish..

Did you remember to put a post in the rear edge of the fin for the rudder hinge?

15/01/2020 21:06:43

Ahh you saw Rincewind then how is the old fellow? Still at the unseen university?

Nice tail feathers there and no red in sight...

Richard sent me a picture of Glynn at work!!


12/01/2020 21:16:39

Nice job... no need to get in a flap over a small cut..

04/01/2020 20:27:45

Go for it Glynn...

Looking forward to your take on it. Now colour scheme...... there's a few to choose from.......

Me..... was like a child in a sweet shop a told to choose one!

Hi Graham

It's a off cut taken from the fuz, if you look back in the forum you will see I used it for blending in the fuz to wing.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for sharing that, having achieved that is a real feather in your cap. The best thing about these forums is where we have an opportunity to learn from others knowledge, experience and innovation. I discovered and especially appreciate how much extra effort that involves.

Looking forward to the final pictures of the Mk2.

Hi Graham,

I won't post the build on this thread as I would hope others who got Richard's kit will still add to it and it would not be right. I have some pictures and if I decide to post them I'll start a new one. I just wanted people to realise how much effort Richard put into his kits in comparison to what else is available. When l start a project I look for all the info on plans/kits available. I have always wanted a Corsair, the plans I chose were the Brian Taylor 61.5" and a short kit of laser cut parts. I think if I had started with this project I may have given up and just bought a foamy. I would have more chance of solving rubik's cube....... but I will prevail......!wink

Hi Richard,

Been progressing the corsair and now I appreciate the effort you put in as a kit manufacturer. The plans although good still lack a bit of information. This I will overcome but cross referencing the info there. The short kit has the major items there but it leaves a lot to be desired, the tail plane has the front ribs but the elevator ribs are an afterthought and way short of the correct number and size and have nothing to do with it the plans. The rudder ribs have only 8 cut 4 per side whereas the plan shows 8 per side.

This is not insurmountable but frustrating that we as modellers turn to the industry that boasts a excellent service.

No wonder you filled that gap with your designs and you deserve a big thanks for all your efforts.

I think myself lucky in starting out in kit building with one of your designs.

The Bf109 build, even with the fact I had the first prototype proved how much was included.

When you finally leave by the' slip out the back door' as you have put it the industry will have a huge gap.
