That's a nice job, Fred. What an improvement on the old kit from Frog. Tempting.

I think those space frames are very nice. Can you tell how the rear turret is going to build up?

Will she get radar?

cheers mate the rear turret just pivots left to right , not sure if they had radar in 1940

 

 

the tail added the wing bits and masked the clear parts , the gun turrets will get fitted near the end after camo if i fit them before camo i would end up breaking the guns knowing me , 1 turret has been painted the Alclad RAF Dark Earth

Hello!

That's a nice looking bomber - I'd say it probably has better looks than performance! And your rendering of it is also very cool. Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Paweł

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!
