Spanjaard i really like it!!! great job on the wood specially. and lovely opening story :D :D
6. November at 16:34:41
gorbygould Thank's very much Spanjaard. :)
I forgot to say that I did this build at the start of this year, but only just got around to sorting out the failed album. :)

Tom ... Enjoyed that! Love the curtains and googly eyes. But I think you should have painted the herring a red color.... just say'n
6. November at 17:56:14
gorbygould Thanks Tom, that made me laugh. :)
That's good idea. I might have to rename the little fish – it previously 'the grinning kipper'.

djferrisbueller Yep share your WW1 thoughts, I too steered well clear in my 70s/80s original hobby expeditions of these kits too and would only ever make anything but a kite for the same reasons. Love the post and think the build looks spectacular indeed as does everything else I've just scrolled through on your page too - impressed. I shan't mention an immenent psb concert I'm off to. Ha! Ha!

Nigel Not wishing to be a "history nazi", but the curtains aren't as outlandish as you might think: (second row, seventh image)

The googly eye, on the other hand... ;)
16. November at 20:29:47
gorbygould Thanks mates. :)
Nigel: The curtain decals came with the kit. The googly eyes were an after-market resin detail update set because I wanted to go that extra mile to make it as (in)accurate as possible – very, very expensive, nearly 50p for 50!!!! So I've got plenty more in my googly-eye stash. I wonder what a Stuka would look like with googl…… ;)

gorbygould Thanks very much Frank, your praise has made my day! :)
Up until this, tanks were of little interest to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed this build, probably more than any model I've ever done. It kept my brain working right to the end. I'm not saying that there will be no more aircraft from me, but there will certainly be more AFV in my near future.

Jean-Michel Tilquin Wow! I missed this one, but the view from the trend is impressive, so real!

gorbygould Thanks very much Jean-Michel. I'm glad you like it. :)

Spanjaard What a great job!!!! I knew I was missing some great builds in those months that I was out of SCM

Munkyslut That's fantastic!
My favourite Gerry Anderson TV prog back in the early 70's, such cool machines, the SHADO's, the Interceptors, even Strakers car

Spanjaard Fantastic job gorbygould!!! I have to remember your gorbygamy technique!
24. August at 17:38:30
gorbygould I'm glad you like it, I'm quite pleased how it turned out.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

Gordon Sørensen Great looking work area, gorby! If only mine was as neat and organized...
10. August at 09:45:48
gorbygould Thanks mates.
That's a good name for the room Urban, although I'm not sure I would be classed as entirely sane.
Gordon: I wish mine was that neat and organised as well! The photos are before any plastic was mangled. I've added another photo on the end to give a more accurate image of what's it's like in use.
10. August at 10:24:23
Spanjaard ventilation shaft will certainly be copied :)
10. August at 10:42:31
Urban Gardini Well, of course you're not able to classify as sane. You're after all a modeller...
10. August at 10:45:36
gorbygould :D (I assume that is supposed to represent laughing – it looks more like constipation to me).
Spanjaard: The ducting was one of my slightly better ideas. It doesn't get rid of the paint smells completely, but it's much better than it was. Incidentally the stuff I used is called 'Kair System 100 Rectangular'. I bought it from a well known South American river ;) and it was quite a reasonable price - £37 all in. The brackets are overpriced but I managed to do it with just one of them.

Alec K Very nice job Gorby, and considering your self-reported aversion to labor a laudable effort indeed. I envy the natural light (my cave is in the basement, so no cigar). Nice work on the tool storage and compressor mounting as well
10. August at 12:41:10
gorbygould Thanks Alec. I had hoped those years of manual labour were behind me, it's not good for your health you know. The compressor mounting works well – the rubber shelf mounting and the rubber mat absorb quite a lot of the vibration, so it sounds much quieter.
10. August at 16:27:18
Spanjaard i actually have part of the stuff already... i had a couple of tubes leftover from some crazy idea during the renovation of our place... i just need the ends of it, and i have it almost done. well, i need to connect it to the window, but i have an idea about it :)

22. May at 16:29:22
Shawn McDonie Just wow.... Wish I could build something like that
22. May at 17:27:37
Lee Fogel WOW! That is a stunning diorama! Very nice work
22. May at 18:06:31
gorbygould Thanks very muck mates! :)
Shawn: I didn't know that I could until I tried, give it a go, you might surprise yourself. At the very least you'll learn from your mistakes - as I did from my first dio.

gorbygould Thanks Murad! :)
24. May at 15:35:45
Jean-Michel Tilquin Very nice work! I admire the people who dare scratchbuild (I don't (yet))
5. July at 17:18:19
gorbygould Thanks Jean- Michel. With your modelling skills you should have no problem scratch-building. Give it a go, if you're anything like me you'll love it. :)

Nathan Dempsey Interesting camo on that bird.
4. January at 12:56:24
gorbygould Thanks Soren & Nathan - the camo is as 'what-if' as the aircraft. I enjoyed playing around with ideas for it.
