Not again !

After my decision to make a il-28 for the last GB and finding Zenrat had a similar idea. I now find that finally coming to a decision on what to do for this GB .... Mossie got there first ! (Well sort of)

Waiting for the camera batteries to charge but trust me I've decided on the Boulton Paul Sea Defiant.

Yes a Defiant (sorry Mossie) with wellies.

Ironically I only made my mind up a few days ago too!  No worries, we'll just have our own 1WDGB. :party:

Looking forward to seeing it, much prettier than a Roc! :wub:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I meant that as a challenge and view of possible options rather than a put down so I have removed the message.

Apologies Gondor my remark was meant as humour with a sad face with awe at those models. Please re-post the Defiants as I'll defiantly continue to produce something may be not as good but something.

Right ! Work is continuing, pictures may follow but things are not progressing very fast. It's been one of those weeks.

So far my boiler has broken down needs replacing (3k), my car got a terminal MoT failure so replacing it with a 2007 Kia (3.5k) and then my son has a crash into a fence in my old hot hatch that I gave him several years ago. He's ok but then I found out it was my fence he hit........

Anyway the fuselage halves have been joined but I forgot to take the pictures before I did it. So soon to follow - a picture of a fuselage and several spring clips.

Bungle, that face shows as "Angry" so I took it as that rather than a sad face.

The pictures are from those I took at Perth this year so I will just post the link as its past midnight at the moment.
