HI all here's what I'm building as a competition on another place.

Can't tell you what's going to happen to the poor fella, think of the warspite dio, there will be at least a couple of explosions, I have a feeling none of you will know where this is going till the last couple of posts.
There was a little flash on the parts but the worst bit of the kit is the awful mold seams on all the wings.

A great start KP, that is a great looking hippy paint job and I am also looking forward to seeing where this build is going. This is being built for a comp on another forum? I didn't know such places existed and thought it was only a rumour :ha:

Engine looks good, but the rest is a mystery.

Interesting looking road section dio and that beastie, looks reminiscent of The Blob to me.

Well some people are so rude. I'm a member of Instagram ( I have been a member for a while but only really started posting model pics lately)I don't know much about social media but normally I just post pics with no explanation so I posted these pics as it gone along, after this update I got 80 likes in one day (that is the most I've had so far) well I got a private massage saying "you should stick to drawing this is crap my six yr old could do better"that's just plain rude, I don't know them, they don't know me, and obviously a lot of people like it, I don't know why people feel they have to make statements like that. I've looked ate some of their posts and they don't even build models (at least if they do they're so crap they don't post them)

And there is the justification for not joining/subscribing to any form of 'social media'........except I suppose that this forum and Flickr are also classed as such but at least they are generally only contributed to by like-minded people.
