That sounds good Al - we'll have an 8th Air Force before you know it!

AS SEEN TODAY on HYPERSCALE:

This I.P.M.S. good guy Jef Verswyvel is a hoot, AND he has no idea yet that a 1/12th scale monster Lib is emerging from the Meade Aircraft Werks!

Very nice John yes I started glassing Libby bits last night - the tailplane first to get it, as that'll be at a primed stage before being fitted permanently into the fus.

Still wondering how to operate the B24's unique bomb-bay doors crook

Have you considered a sail winch servo Andy?

I haven't, no. I think at this scale it's going be really fiddly to make all four doors open and close in a scale like fashion. ...and then land on them on the slope surprise

I think the mechanism would be do-able with 2 winch servos, but I agree that making it strong enough to survive slope landings would be tricky.

Still tickling it along - bottom of fus is glassed for protection now, as I finish off the back end (turret mount, tailplane mount, bellcranks etc) :

Tailplane and elevators all glassed and knocked back, ready for finalising of mechanism. Here sat on top of my little Seahawk that is just having it's cockpit made :

As well as seeing you get the Lib nearer completion (ready for 2019!), any chance of some pics of the Seahawk in it's own thread please Mr. Meade?

I've not really got much in the way of build pics I'm afraid Alan, but you can search for Seahawk on my blog here : www.slopenomad.blogspot.com

Thanks Dirk yes I've not really got that much of a deadline, I'll just try and get a few airframes finished during next season. These include the 1/4 scale Typhoon, the big C17, this B24, the Seahawk, and hopefully my Ilyushin 102 (another one not modelled at all, as far as I can see).

After that, I'll be getting on with a large-ish Gannet, 5m span M55 Mystic, and the quarter scale FW190., but they are next winter's build really. Phew!
