im going to have a crack at this for a Nightfighter GB elsewhere, simply cos its been lurking in the stash for more years than i want to admit to.....years ago, before i knew better, i bought a bundle of PM kits......dont know how this is going to go cos they aint the best, might end up being filed under 'bin'
not many parts, grand total of 40......decals look gash so are already in the bin and will be replaced by some from the spares box.....found a sheet thats supposed to be for a Me110 so should be the right size-ish

Without doubt one of the worst kits ive ever took on!......took lots of filler to get to this point cos it’s a terrible fit

I've been there myself. Sometimes you have to accept kits by smaller companies to get the subject you're looking for. Good luck with it.

Weird, I'm not able to see the photos on this thread. I reloaded the page and only got the box art, the next two are still unavailable.

Anyway, looking forward to watching this come together (I'm sure the view issues will resolve). Focke Wulf TA-154 1817768433

Just looking at the parts on the sprue fills me with underwhelmingness. It looks a horrible kit.
I reckon you'll be able to turn it from sow's ear to silk purse, Paul.

I'd never heard of it before, a lot of politics in it's story.

so ive had 2 weeks off work on holiday, i didnt sit at the bench once, didnt plan it that way but its how it turned out

unfortunatly its this pile of poo ive come back to

got to the point where i just want to get it done and move on to something else

ive seen various camo schemes for this but have gone for a fairly simple one.......RLM 76 over all with some RLM 75 blotches on upper surfaces

so since the last sitrep, decals on, a coat of matt varnish overall, masking removed, undercarriage installed (which required a bit of keyhole surgery in the nacelles).......despite packing the nose with loads of ballast its still a tail sitter so had to add a little support under the tail

next is add the radar greeblies and a few bits and bobs and its finished!.......hurrah! cant flippin' wait!
