Looking really good Andy. I know where to get my balsa wood now. Can I book a single ticket to Pearl harbour?

:P cheers Pete.

Not sure how many updates I'll do the rest of the year, what with travelling to see relatives and such. I will try and post a piccie of her with the fins on, as its an impressive bulk now, and is starting to dwarf the Me262 nicely.

Hi Mark,

Not a great deal of progress so far, but fuselage sheeting has commenced, and then quickly stopped when I found I'd built a twist into the tail mounting. Sort of lost all momentum on all builds at the moment, as there are 4 on the bench, and I'm not keen on moving any of them on currently.

Will hopefully get my building mojo back later in the year.

I find hiding part builds in the loft, it helps, then I just have one on the bench at a time.

I've been planking it! No photos of that so far, but the A10 fus planking has been really getting me down, so moving to building my own design makes me happier. Shona bought me this lovely book - one for the bedside table cool

Here is my first large print from my new 3D printer - the ball turret :

(ear plug not included!) Quite happy with that! Weighs 9g, took 7 hours to print (left it overnight) and seems really strong. Just a quick clean up with sandpaper, and she's ready for the .50 cals!

Thanks gents! The old Libby ain't dead yet, still tickling the build along when I'm waiting for glass to dry on the A10 yes

Played a bit with some modelling last night, and fired off a 3D print...that took 11 hours to complete!

Quite happy with the result though, just 3 more to produce now. It's quite big - 135mm across the major ellipse axis.

I'm looking at these 3D printers offered by Hobby King, very tempted.

Apparently the bigger one isn't too bad - good accuracy and decent print area. I did see the miniature one in an email shot from HK yesterday. It looks ok but that is quite a small print area. I might still be tempted though when they arrive in the UK warehouse!

Well, just to make sure this is kept tickling along and not abandoned like Phil's A10 devil

I retrieved the fuselage from the loft last weekend, and quickly went to work finishing off the fuselage planking.

Lots of sanding later, she was given the once over by Polyfilla's lightweight stuff. It's a bit more money than my usual Wilke's or other fillers, but it really is great stuff for applying and sanding back

Tailplane mounting to sort next, along with finalising the bomb-bay mechanism, then I can get this glassed for ding-proof-ness.

Pleased to see this progressing Andy! I've got a 1/10 scale B25 that I'm turning into a PSS model. They might look nice together in the air.
