I've updated the front page.  Theuns has joined the GB with an Airfix Hurricane and a possible Bf-110, both in 1/72.  

Good to have you with us, Theuns!

Well I ordered the decals for my 109 this evening. Looking forward to the chore of figuring out which scheme to use!

Know what you mean, ajd.  My Bf 109 comes with five options.  Haven't picked one yet, either.

Sorry no sprue shots of my new tool Airfix Hurricaine Mk1 1/72.

Here is the rather nice wheelwell detail, it is built up from 4 pieces in the bottom section of the wing

Interestingly the floor boards, pedals and collomb is glued to the top of the wing, then goes into the rather nicely detailed cockpit with tube structure.

Pity most of it will not be visible through the canopy.

Finished the Type 97 Chi Ha. It is depicted hull down in a crater waiting for something to happen.

     As usual, feedback and comments are welcome. Steve

Great works, Steve.  Outstanding dioramic setting.  And you're the first to finish.  Congratulations.

The landscaping is excellent!  Very realistic and, well, dirty looking.

Do you have a preference for the photo on the front page?

You've got a lot of great looking choices, ajd.  Personally, I would find it tough to choose.

I personally am leaning towards yellow 13, with the witch riding a broomstick. But I an also really warming up to white 3 (right hand side half way down) that death rider looks really cool. Although I still haven't figured out why he is wielding an umbrella haha

Checkmate,

I believe the second pic will do, the close-up of the side.

Thank you sir.

The front page has been updated to show modelcrazy's Type 97 Chi Ha.  Great work, Steve.  It's been a pleasure to see this come together, and to have you participate in the build.

Take the badge!  And don't be a stranger!

Nice work, Theuns.  Looks like the kit builds up very well.  I see Airfix finally added the shell ejection ports on the bottom of the wings.  On their old Hurricane, I always had to add them with black decal stock.

There was a lot of progress up to this day.

I opened MIRAGE's box and took a look at the pit pieces.  It seems like a very nice kit, has some resin and PE parts etc.

That's all... Embarrassed

Modelling time has become a luxury I'm afraid.

The plane I shall build is the one depicted on the box art.

Nice looking aircraft, Z.  It has an interesting look to it.  I know what you mean about time being a luxury.  It's hard getting some consistent work done.  Still, there's plenty of time left in the build!

Now that's something a bit different Zvezda. I take it this is a Polish built aircraft.

Hey zvezda, I have that same kit, except its the Bulgarian version. I agree, it looks really nice. Except mine is missing the resin radiator sadly :(

Bish, it is indeed Polish. The PZL 24 was the export version of the PZL 11, Poland's "front line fighter" when the *** invaded. Since the PZL 11 used a license built Bristol Mercury motor that they couldn't sell as an export, they had to replace it with some French radial I can't remember in the 24. It actually held the world speed record for a radial engined fighter for a little while. The PZL 24 was exported to Bulgaria, Greece, and Romania. And possibly Turkey I think.

It was only the PZL that made me think that, I recalled those letters being used for another Polish plane.

Started putting in some work in the cockpit of the Hobbycraft 109E. The cockpit is really really nice. Especially for a 10 buck kit.
