Re: 1/72 Revell Ju 290 A-7

lovely man...beware of the engine cowling parts, tricky to attach them and I remember the instruction drawings are confusing about what is front and back

Re: 1/72 Revell Ju 290 A-7

I had the same feeling when I worked on it and thought how the hell does this work? So I looked for pics and found a few like these ones, can't have been the best solution....but those German planes like big front cockpits so there is hardly ever space for a nose gear. It is a beautiful plane, so is...

Re: HMS VICTORY, in wood, 1:100

Thanks, I said the same thing about varnishing..it would keep the wood smoother and cleaner. No fingerprints, stains, ingress of whatever....but answer was no.

Re: PANTHER F, Dragon, 1:35

Yes, it's nice to stick something together,my bench is now my parents's new dining table with a real Persian carpet on top (they love to fly those things), so I have to mind the knife a bit.

PANTHER F, Dragon, 1:35

Hi guys, I just started this German Panther tank model F. The basics of the turret is done, it is a "small turret" type, that was developed to minimise the target size. This type of turret was also developed to contain a 8.8cm gun like the King Tiger (never used), but this one is still the...
