Paul Stubbs Mmm. More disintegrating decals tonight. I can touch up the large ones but the white pin stripes are just falling apart. Don't know what the complex side ones are going to be like so I need another plan. I'll be trying the scan I did to see what comes of that.

Paul Stubbs Brief update with pictures to follow shortly. Unfortunately my efforts to re-create decals using scans of the originals and Laser/Inkjet waterslide printing paper failed miserably and could only be considered as a last resort. The good news though, was (although Willams Bros ignored two emails requests) I managed to order replacement decals from their website (at great expenses in postage from US) and they arrived over Christmas. WB did refund some of my Paypal payment without asking (which was very noble of them) but the bad news was they are not a whole lot better than the original decals. I came very very close at one point to bringing a sledge hammer down on the lot I was getting so frustrated. The other bad news was that the matt red base was not a great idea and is so delicate that I've ended up touching it up by brush where I damaged it and it doesn't match too well. I've made a fist of it though and whilst it's been far from a great experience, I should hopefully be able to see it through to some sort of completion and then hide it in a cupboard somewhere. I've still some bits of decals to do (the wheel pant trim lines are wildly optimistic in their 2D profile and so I'm going to have to cut and paste these from scrap parts off the old decals) and then I'll be clear coating the lot to finish.

Dave Flitton I think you will pull a good build out of this one. Patience, my dear Padowan!

Peter Hardy Paul, appreciate your patience with the decals. We will all be fascinated with your next steps. Don't give up and put the effing hammer down! Want to see this finished BADLY!!!!

Paul Stubbs Thanks for the words of encouragement chaps.

Paul Stubbs Can't believe this has taken me a year to do and I'm still not happy with it. It's at a stage now I'll call it quits and one day may go back to tidy up some of the rough edges. Can't say it's been a great build, very frustrating, the poor quality of the kit, instructions, mouldings and most of all the decals. Even the newly ordered set fell to pieces. Out of 10, 1 would be generous. Makes even old Airfix kits look good. I had plenty of my own problems toot though, it was not my finest hour. One for the die hard builders I think.

Paul Stubbs This is no Tamiya kit! Plenty of work required to get it to fit together and the instructions leave a bit to be desired. "Due to possible alignment variances" or poor moudlings to be more precise.
5. March 2018 at 09:23:45
Paul Stubbs Ongoing with plenty of filler, primer and sanding.
14. May 2018 at 10:37:55
Paul Stubbs Fill, sand, spray - (repeat).
30. July 2018 at 12:29:04
Paul Stubbs Switch to white primer, final filling and then top coats.
13. August 2018 at 09:00:55
Paul Stubbs Bit more work required to make the canopy fit right!! Cowling drilled for exhaust outlets. Masked canopy, sprayed but a little more filling required before final top coats. Tidied up cockpit and fitted pedals which were missed earlier on. Going to add some "cushions" to the seats to make it look a bit more realistic. Worked out where decals go (as there are no instructions), where needs to be sprayed and in what order. Still plenty to do but the finish line is nearly in sight.

Paul Stubbs Made for my fathers 75th birthday along with a visit to the Concorde experience at Manchester Airport visitors centre. He lost the wheels so I'll try and find some replacements.

Mike Daniels I think he will be very pleased with that. Great job.

Treehugger Aah white colored aircraft looks so nice imo.
28. August 2018 at 11:21:26
Paul Stubbs He's actually 81 now and I made this before I discovered Squadron Products Putty so would do a better job on the join lines if I made it again. Not a bad kit for Airfix though .
