I will be starting this in the next few days so here are the box content shots. I haven't opened the sprue bags yet as I dont want to lose any bits so will do the pictures once I have set up the workbench for it.

Hi there Roger
We are a month into this build, I hope 'other issues' are not to time consuming for you.
Can we look forward to seeing your build ?
Ian

Unfortunately, other issues have risen their ugly heads and I won't ber able to get to this build until after May so I apologise, I really thought I would be able to get this one done in time but I will have to take this into GB Plus. I will get to it at some stage.

Oh, and when I do get to it I plan to do the B.1.

Still working on the internal parts of this kit. main floor has been installed though I did bend one of the spars trying to fit it through the holes in the fuselage side.

I love the decals, espacially the map for the navigators table.

Should progress quickly from here on in.

It has always been a tight fit getting the spars through the fuselage but now you are on your way . . .

The pilot was also finished and added to the office.

A start has been made on the starboard half of the fuselage.

Those spars - look so rigid, turn out flimsy. Good to see you're persevering.
