    Sorry I haven't been around lately fellas, lots going on in the real world! :)

    Seeing as that 1/32 Stuka has beaten me, well the rivets beat me! I didn't want not to have a finished build in this GB. I got a couple of Trumpeter P-40b's in the post a few days ago, so I'd like to enter one and see if I can get it finished in 10 days! I might be biting off more than I can chew, but I'll give it a go.

    Manufacturer: Trumpeter
    Model Type: Tomahawk MkIIB
    Details: K (AN413) 112 Sqn RAF, flown by PO Jack Bartle, Eygpt 1941.

    I have to work five 12 hour shifts in the next 10 days so I might be pushing it a bit, so maybe there might be a bit of leeway with not finishing by the 30th???

    Cheers KG, a bit of breathing space! :thumbleft:

    I did a bit of searching on your build Harrison, no luck I'm afraid in finding the pilot of that crate.

    Cheers Wojtek! :)

    This build is for both the Aussies and the Brits, Jack Bartle was an Aussie flying in the RAF. He had a kangaroo painted forward of the cockpit. 8) He had 6 1/2 victories, he also earned the DFC.

    This particular aircraft was lost while being piloted by PO R Jeffries, KIA 12 Dec 1941. :salute:

    Nice one Keith. Pity about the Stuka, but I'm sure you'd rather tackle those rivets at leisure. Look forward to seeing the P40 develop.

    Yes it is a very nice shark mouthed P-40. I like the kangaroo art print on its fuselage. Waiting for more pics of its build.

    Cheers lads, I'm going to aim for this one to be ready by 12 Dec, on the same date 68 years ago it was lost.
