Ekki Watching.

Glenn . Watching this big bird come to life, Somehow i ended up buying 4 of these! But they only ever built 2. Will use the others for a couple of "what if" projects!
20. July at 04:57:44
Dave Burgess ... and one of them was destroyed in a mid-air collision! I think the remaining one is in the National Air & Space Museum
21. July at 06:07:56
Glenn . Correct! I plan on doing one with the X-15-3 Delta on the back plus one in SAC light grey allover with a pair of Skybolt missiles under the wings!

Maciej Bellos I am in!
22. July at 22:28:58
Donald Dickson II I have this and have definite plans for it. LOL And the surviving plane is actually at the USAF Museum at Right Patterson AFB, Dayton OH. I went with my son back in March. Seeing this baby in person up close is worth the trip alone. Never mind the B-58, the B-36, Memphis Belle, etc etc.

Łukasz Gliński I like the yellow one more, but this is still cool.
16. July at 12:01:09
Dave Burgess I bought this through E-Bay, only to find the kit had already been started, and a couple of key pieces were missing. Fortunately, I was refunded, and the seller let me keep the model.

In order to build it, I had to pour a couple of replacement resin pieces; it cost me more for the resin and casting material than I paid for the kit! Still, in the end, it turned out quite well. Because it was much more work, I think I have a soft spot for this one over the yellow/red Labrador

Dave Burgess I'm a bit at loose ends right now. We started a renovation project in our basement hobby room back in late May. We're still waiting for the floor installers to lay down the new floor. In the meanwhile, we have hobby supplies stacked up all over the house, and nowhere to build!

We're looking forward to getting the hobby room back in operation. We re-framed, wired, dry-walled and installed 21 pot lights so it's nice and bright. The room is big - 12' x 32'. My wife has half for her sewing, quilting etc. In the other half, I loaded up with 20 (switched) electrical outlets so I have enough plugs for all of my lighted projects. Now if we can just get an installer for the floor!

Gordon Sørensen Great looking Hornet, Dave. Saw this at the Saskatoon Airshow...
20. July at 03:53:44
Dave Burgess I used the close-up photos from that airshow as reference when I was doing up the paint scheme.

Spanjaard very nice job on all those lights! drilling all those tiny holes, aligned... wow, that is patience!
17. July at 23:08:36
Peter Hardy Awesome demonstration of superb multi talents Dave. I love Sci Fi and particularly Star Trek builds. Love your stuff!
18. July at 12:37:23
Timothy Heimer That's how you do it! Nice work Dave!, and the pics are better than mine to show the light blocking. Nice piece!
18. July at 13:58:30
Dave Burgess Drilled out all of the windows with a pin vise and #70 drill bits It took 3 holes per window plus some filing to open them up. There were over 1500 windows, so I hand drilled over 4500 holes in about 4 weeks - all of that drilling gave me tendonitis in my wrist! Now I have the Tamiya handy drill - wish I'd known about it at the time.
18. July at 19:17:32
Spanjaard by hand??? holy.....
18. July at 19:20:32
Peter Hardy Dedication to his hobby Spanjaard.
Dave, I bought the Tamiya handy drill and found it wouldn't hold the micro drill bits. Bought a Trumpeter? one and that holds everything! You seem to be a prolific builder, are you showing us stuff you have already built or retired with a passion?
18. July at 23:49:56
Dave Burgess With the Tamiya, I used my Dremel chucks, and that seems to work OK.

I've been retired since 2009; The builds in my build list include all of the models I've built since retirement, plus models I built as long ago as the late '70s (most of which I still have). I'm not building at the moment, because we're renovating our hobby room (still waiting for the new floor to be installed). Not being able to build is frustrating, but it's given me time to update my build history on this website.
