Cheers. Yes, the jig is a bit of an epic contraption!

Sorry not to confirm on this but yes, 1/72 - the only scale I build in. I've been very happy with the method so far. It has solved one of my major reservations about using EZ line.

Hi David,

how's your back? I can recommend a good Chiropractor in my town.

This will make you sit up!

It's appreciating my adjustments to my work space, that's for sure!

Oh, and I bought those two Tintin modelling e-books the moment they became available :-D :-D
I've been steadily building up a stash of Tintin types and Blue Rider decals to go with them.

Bit of modelling going on at the moment. Corsair GB starting today but right at the moment I'm working on the Fokker D.VIII for the Biggles Forum WW1 GB.

Seat belts are strips of painted baking paper. Behaves better than tape.

Bit of an eye strain, that....

Strutters are turning out great. I really like the laminations you did on the prop. Tough one in 1/72!

Yep! And it's still to coarse. I needed narrower masking strips. Ah well, looks good enough.

My local model club has had an Airfix Beaufighter GB running for about a year, finishing in 3 weeks. I may have left things a little to the last minute....

Anyway, bits are stuck to other bits.

Beaufighter is coming on apace. Fit is not quite as good as I had hoped for in a new tool :sad:
