Seeing as some of us like to build small models, I've created the Tiny Model Challenge. Feel free to post build diaries of any tiny models.

Look what I just won off Ebay :D Bargain of the year, or what 8-)

With a little modification it will be the perfect partner to the X-1

but it's 1/144 scale of course?!
I'd say the seller is a victim of wrong labeling at 1/44 scale so no-one went for it...

except mark :D

Yeah, the daft thing was that I questioned him about it. He confirmed it was 1/144 but didn't amend the listing or make the question public. Not that I'm complaining of corse :laughing-rolling:

Just a few details to paint in, and she is done.

Thanks Casper.

No Paul, there are some other projects on the cards before the B-29. Titanic to finish, Hood to progress, an Airfix Spit to finish and a Tamiya Challenger tank to finish. All of those projects are quite well progressed. Just need some more time :angry-banghead:
