 Progress so far.

 Mark IV is progressing. Propellers to cut from black take away coffee cup tops. "Power Eggs "to made up and attached to rest of engine.

 Mark 1- As shown on right. Frazer nash FN7 turret at the end of a piece of dowel.

 Working on decals for Mark IV.

 Cheers

Looking good. At 1/144 that should be about 10cm long?

  Measures 185mm but it was to go with the Horsa I made.
 There is a 1/144 Hamilcar that was partly cut out at the same time.
 Managed to make up a set of decals for them.

 Progressing

 Thank you Paul.

 Some progress with the Mk1.

 Traverse ring fitted. Turret still attached to dowel. Makes it a bit easier to paint.

 Some propellers cut out. Engines require scoops and exhausts . I won't be doing the flame damping (  a wee bit small).

 Hope to have one if not both finished by 31 DEC.

 Cheers

 Gordon

I wish you well on your projects. Not much time left. I was in a Christmas parade this evening so no more build time today.

 Progressing with these two.

 Have made the beam approach, Parachute strop guard and glider tow attachment for the Mk IV.

 Exhausts and scoops made for the engines of the MkI.

 Pictures to follow.
