    So good to be back modeling! I have previously done a Churchill tank but was not happy with the build so not sure if I will continue that one but here we go with this one. This kit is a beauty and I look forward to getting started. Not sure when I will get started yet though as I cannot decide whether to wait till I can get some paints or just get the building started while I wait for the paints.

    Some progress... Just test fitting mostly and bonded parts I can get away with. Think I might have to wait for paints now at this stage.

    Sorry, for some reason my phone would not upload -.-, anyhow I remembered I managed to snap off one of the tiny pieces of detail from the fuselage and lost it -.- It won't be noticed really but if anyone has any ideas how to fix mistakes like that would be a great help.
