Bill Gilman Hi mates, here is one of my latest projects. This is the 1:72 CMR resin kit of the Blackburn Firebrand TF.5, a superbly detailed kit. Have a look at the photos to see my progress. I hope everyone is staying safe during the pandemic. We scale modellers should adapt well to the crisis - we've been practicing social distancing since age 9! Cheers, Bill

Jay Dubya Too true and too funny, Bill.
BTW: Great fix on those fiddly fan blades

Bill Gilman Thanks. As I remember, the resin cockpit was a bit longer than the kit cockpit, and I had to remove the area for the front instrument panel coaming from the kit's fuselage. The resin pit also had to be sanded a lot as it was also too wide for the Revell fuselage. I also sanded down the kit's fuselage sidewalls. I then had to do some tricks with the resin sidewalls. There are some photos and an explanation in the build thread that I posted above. Cheers, Bill

Treehugger I don't normally like flashy paints schemes, but this one looks very nice I think. A good mix of white red and blue.

Bill Gilman Hi Michael,

My build thread is at:

britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=77880

The conversion is not difficult. You need to add two blisters at the top of the vertical tail, change the wing tips to non-slatted but with the RWR sensors, and add slotted horizontal stabilizers. Plus a bunch of antennae.

Cheers,
Bill
