I had a slight feeling of familiarity while cutting them out. Just realised, Paddington Bear! :cheesygrin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31QxeslsDa8

James that is fantastic work. I like your painting of it, the subtle brown streaks and windows etc, they all come together so well.

Cheers
Jim

I've finished all the modelling now, crane and deck crew have been cut out. Just a matter of putting it all together with the back drop.

Cheers guys.

Sorry for the drip-drip of updates but I'm busy with lots of things at the moment as so am posting when I can in case I can't later. Had to do some cake photography for Ab, so took some more of this in better light. Note: arrestor wires added and raised base.

BRAVO. Well done. I like the addition of the figures to the flight deck. How did you make those?

James...that is truly excellent, in all regards. I'm really impressed with the variety of ways different modellers have approached the subject. Very inspiring.

Regards,
Bruce

Also great !!!!

And this is catching, I think. In the PH GB, Brews is going to do his ala box art and I'm doing mine ala book-art ....

Just cut out from printed card like the rest. Small tab added allows them to stand up.

That looks terrific! It was actually my first choice for this project, but then I saw the list and you had already claimed it. The little figures really add to it, not sure that I would have thought to put them in.
