    Hi All
    Still feeling at a bit of a loose end after the GB. This model I finished in April of this year. No real problems with construction another OOB with just the addition of some scratch built seat belts. I decided to do the Trop camo version which added a bit of colour to the usual splinter pattern. All comments welcome.

    Very nice!
    You might concider a "Start to finish" build if you can't find something suitable for this current GB.
    (Although anything that flew between the years 1914 and 1939 covers a lot of craft!)

    Yes that's worth considering Paul although I would like to see how I get on in the group build first. I did purchase The long awaited He219 A-7 UHU over the W/E it was only released in the UK a week ago but won't start it until next year.

    Good one Vaughan. I know what you can do to keep yourself occupied - build an extension to house the Uhu !

    Terry I think your right as you can see I have no shelf space left at the moment so that extension might come in handy.

    Again, a very nice looking aircraft Vaughan. Any story behind the camo scheme. I prefer aircraft the stand out from the flock.

    Hi Geo this Tropical Camouflage was used in Egypt in 1942 and the model is based on a plane flown by Oberstleutnant Walter Siegel.

    Go for it Wayne it retails at £49.99 here in the UK so not a bad price. The only draw back is the size. I've got a Revell JU88 in 1/32 scale in my stash and that looks small in comparison. Since buying it I have done a bit of research and have found some good reference photos which include some of the cockpit. Note the large red handle to the right of the pilots seat this was the ejector seat release and the smaller one was to pop the canopy, it was one of the first planes to have one.
