Very good Tom.
Just how much weight is there in the nose of this?

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

None, that's why it is fixed to a base  ;D

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Having logged in with MS I now can  :unsure: and you've done a really good job with that Tom.  :bow: It's a nice kit, but there's very little room for node weight.

Thanks for the tip Chris, just logged in through Edge and now I can see it

Impressive Tom. I have two of them in the stash so it'd good to see what a finished one looks like, and by that I mean a VERY GOOD finished one, I only hope I can make half as good a job.

Certainly no room for nose weight is there! ;D

I thought this was a Unicraft* twin-engine Spitfire but from elsewhere it is perfect from you too. :thumbsup:

She's gorgeous! I would try weights in the engines if it were me, but not sure if the amount needed would collapse the undercarriage!

I was just pondering the use of "anti-weight" in the tail of a model to stop tail sitting.
And I realised that it'd be a real pain as pieces would slip out of the tweezers and ping up to feed the ceiling monster...

And if you put to much anti-weight in it ?  :angel:
