I will be building a T7 from RAF Brawdy. The reason for my choice is I spent a week there with the Air Training Corps and saw these flying and even got to work on them.

All the best.

Greg.

You might find it easier to build it from a model kit! :ha:

MB, Xtrakit, PJ Productions?

:lol: Nice one. It will be the old Matchbox kit. I know the nose is wrong but I figure with a bit of work I can get it in shape, we'll see. Sprue shots soon, hopefully tonight.

All the best.

Greg

I got the sprue shot sorted only ti discover that there are a few parts missing. Fortunately it's the weapons pylons so I will have to build it clean. Shame as I wanted it with fuel tanks and sneb pods under the wings.

All the best.

Greg

A quick bit of progress with this one. A little bit of paint on the areas to go silver. Ie undercarriage bays etc. And a bit of assembly. The nose is drying ready for filing and sanding to shape. After that I can add nose weight then sort the cockpit out. One of the few kits you can do this with after closing the halves up.

All the best.

Greg.

I considered thw nose dry enough to work with so after a quick file and sanding session this is the result. Though not perfect I think it is an improvement. Over to you guys to comment. Have I got it about right?

All the best

Greg

And the last picture for the night. Fuselage together and tipex filled. It will need another lot of tipex and then sanding. I got the nose so thin that it gave way at the extreme nose when I put the clamp on. An easy fix. Superglue and fishing shot will weight the nose.

All the best.

Greg.

Does look like an improvement. I'd better get back to my bench - too much house painting to do.

More work got done today. More filling and sanding and as the nose side kept caving in when sanding I filled the nose with fishing shot and superglue then filled it again snd started sanding. This seems ya have worked. Hopefully I will finish sanding the fuselage and wings tomorrow. Then I can sort the cockpit and start assembly.

Allthe best.

Greg.

Quite a bit of sanding and polishing later gives me this result below. Some of the same on the winds and it will be time to start assembly.

All the best

Greg
