This will be my victim for this GB, the Trailblazers boxing of the original Frog Vickers Vimy.

Work will begin later this afternoon, before then I need to dig out the plans and work out the rigging layout. The first job will be to drill a lot of holes!

Drilling lots of little holes indeed. Lots of tiny little holes. Hope you have a good supply of spare bits!
I'm looking forward to seeing this come together!

Nice! I have one in the deep stash, a score from an IPMS show a few years ago. Looking forward to you performing your usual magic on this outing.

I wish you hadn't said that ! a new supply is due to arrive on Monday so drilling can re-commence then.
In the meantime I am now working on the cockpit and fuselage, pictures will follow later today.

Looking forward to seeing this one. Just a thought but posing this next to a model of the transatlantic F4 would be sweet.

All the best.

Until I collect my new stock of drills I have slightly detailed and then fitted the cockpit and glued the fuselage halves together.

Coming along very nicely. I've heard it's a beast of a kit too. Good luck for the next bits.

That's really looking good. Sorry about bad luck with the drill bits. I think karma came my way for that.
