    Username: Vic Balshaw
    First name: Vic
    Category: Judge – Non competing
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Pro Modeller Kit – 85-5944

    Extras: Eduard 48286 etched detail set. Aires 4078 Resin and etched detail set. Possibly a heap of scratch building and a lot of patience.

    This was my second entry into GB 17 where for the second time I had a little play with LED lighting and a dabble into fibre optics for the tail light. It was a fun build that was made all the more possible with the great help from you guy, your encouragement, kind comments and support spurred me on. A special thanks must go to Paul (Micdrow) and Terry (Airframes) for the invaluable links and reference pictures they found and posted or sent me.

    These are my official six pictures:

    These were taken during the day with the curtains drawn and the room almost in total darkness and without flash.

    Seriously fantastic!
    Well done, Vic, the detail is just wonderful, I toyed with the idea of lighting up the interior of a B-17 many years ago. You have shown how to go about it!
