    Instead of in 'workbench, it's now here! To stop Lucky moaning, here's some very quick snaps of old 1/32 scale models, which need minor repair/cleaning.
    Typhoon conversion from Revell, SpitIX conversion from Hasegawa, and the old Matchbox 109E. All brush-painted with hand-painted codes. Canopy moulded on Typhoon, scratch-built, 33 piece canopy on 109. Marauder is the nearly finished 1/48th Revell/Monogram for the diorama guide. All under artificial light, no filter, hence colour cast.

    Terry if you want to upload pics using the Quick Reply option you have to click the Go Advanced button instead of Post Quick Reply.In the new opened window you'll find the same button Manage Attachments like in the Post a new Thread option.What is more if you start writing any text in the Quick Reply window and then you click the Go Advanced button the already written text will be moved to the new opened window.I think you will catch it.

    Thanks Wojtek, now I understand!
    And thanks for your compliments guys. Thor' glad you like the B26; the real aircraft looks worse in one of the few B&W pics of it, so I modelled it as it would have been in about March '44. Les', will get some better shots, including decent close-ups, with one of my SLR's, under proper lighting, soon as I can, along with other models. These shots were taken with a (reasonable) 'happy snaps' digital compact I borrowed, under a desk lamp. You can probably tell!.

    Here's another of the 'Emil', with its 'owner', Erich, looking slightly worn and glossy after 22 years, plus some more nearly finished 1/48th scale, one just for you Jan, and another of the B26 to show the weathering, and something completely different......
    And if you're nice and say please, Jan, I might show another one of the black aircraft....

    Oops! Forgot to re-size the last ones! By way of apology, here's the Panther again, plus a B&W photo of the real 'Idiots Delight', and some more 20 year old, 1/32nd scale conversions, agin awaiting repair/cleaning, and, just for Lucky, that Beau again, plus an unfinished, converted 1/48th B17G.
    That's your lot for now!
    Where's my wee dram?!!!

    Thanks, Eagle. Yes, brush-painted, including the code letters on the 1/32nd scale ones. The only exceptions are the Marauder and Phantom, the latter was brush-painted, with a final airbrush coat of varnish, the Marauder was airbrushed, then dry brushed, airbrushed with varnish, then more dry brushing. Took some time, that one, and it's not finished yet!
