Just the wings at Broughton matey. I have worked on the gear rib on almost all variants from the A300 dinosaur, all A320 and A321 variants including the NEO and CEO right up to the A380 so if your landing gear falls off when you take your next flight on an Airbus I was off that day :shifty: :whistle: :lol:

DHL nicked your 1/32 Tomcat?

You need to not only scream at them but demand that they replace it and threaten them with lawyers

You mean.... You let the French get one over on you? :o

What is wrong with you? I would have demanded that they replace it or you will go onto social media and accuse them of cheating you. These kits are not cheap!

BTW, What do you think of the kit?

Hi James;

Yeah :angry-banghead: - And I just left Hartlepool where I was viewing the statue in the marina there whilst thinking of the first kit issues - :laughing-rolling: -...Anyway, I think the Trumpy as good as the Tamiya but it's the engraving and better cockpit that completes the final push past Tamiya. You'd think they'd re-issue with engraving completed but I guess it would approach large HKM model kit pricing then. And since the Tommy-cat is no longer in service I guess the market isn't there....Anyway, will post some parts in the sleeves pics next weekend as I move to the Aires cock pit workover... :D (The F-14 Seats and the Hachette Easy Rider Harley eat up my time the past few weeks..)

Have you checked the fit of the tub into the Tomcat? Quite often adjustments have to be made and I find it is better done before starting on the painting and detail. Looking great though!

Good point James. I will do so. Aires indicate shaded portions of the resin tub to remove in their instructions. But as you say, better to be safe.... :? :think:

Stunning work Morris. As Snap says, it's worth checking the fit in the fuz as the resin cockpits are notorious for needing extensive adjustments.
Cheers
