What are you modelling on? A layer of old bottle tops under sheet glass ?


That's the dining room table cloth. It's plastic and wipes clean pretty easily.

All the best.

Well done there.

So has he got the modelling bug, Greg?

Hopefully he has. And lets face it. There's a pretty respectable stash in my loft that needs building and I won't live long enough to do it. He has said he wants to build more.

All the best.

Greg

Excellent work, at your age all I did was build the kits and add the decals.

So to build and paint a kit to that standard in a blitz is outstanding for your age, I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Regards Splash

Well. The deed is done. Though we neglected to have a clock in on this (my fault, me bad) I hope we can allow Greg jnr this one. Here's the finished pic. Very limited input from me. I put on the bluetak for the cammo. And helped out with the undercarriage and prop but he attached them. All the painting is his. Hope you enjoyed following the build. Next job for me is putting it hanging from his bedroom ceiling.

All the best.

2 Gregs.

Well done Greg Jr. Your first Blitz. And great mentoring Greg Sr. Now, let’s reverse roles.

Cheers for the kind words folks. Greg jnr is in bed now so I will pass on what you have said tomorrow. Ss it's a SEAC aircraft I may get him a Hobbyboss Zero to go with it.
He already has all thr Pixar 'Planes' and 'Planes 2' aircraft models up there.

All the best.

Greg.

That's awesome and my congrats to you both. I'm quite envious as I don't have a little one to share builds with.
