    :oops: Hey folks!

    Back in the saddle after almost a year (well, I have one foot in the stirrup anyway). I'd plead insanity but it was mainly work (and Skyrim).

    Apologies for the picture, Mr Sunshine (and my photography skill) has gone back into hibernation in Hull it would seem. Finally finished this one - only been sat on my bench, in full camo, since September. 1/48 btw.

    Now - I need to get my eye back in (and an eyetest too probably given how hard it was to hit some of the detail here :))

    I've been lucky enough to be the recipient of the Eduard Royal Class Bf110 and Bf109 boxes - it's a bind, I know, but I suppose I'll stir myself enough to give them a go.

    Thanks folks - always think the Hurri is a sadly unloved bird given the debt we owe to her.

    Not a fan of the Hurri at all, but your model may change that! Really like the work you did there!

    Lovely Hurricane.

    When I get back onto planes I've got to get myself a Hurricane; it's a big gap in my display cabinet.
