Nope he's right Martins stuff is in his own room or the loft he uses the sideboard in the guest room as its clear space and has the better natural light. He's barred from storing stuff on the top as he's already taken over two room in the house  ;D

its been a while since I last posted up a build.
Well heres the in progress shots of one im working on at the moment.............Welcome to project Hub cap.

Its the Squadron Haunebu II kit built OOB. Im also doing it in the same camo colors as per the kit, but to my own freesyle pattern.
As you can see in the first pic. Its a big bugger!

And if your wondering where the pics were taken. Its in the back office of the gate house at work.
Yeap my employer and the client have no problem with me building at work on nights and/or at weekends. To their mind it shows im not likely to be sleeping while on shift.

Why project hubcap. Well the diameter of this monster is barely a few mm less than the diameter of the hubcaps on my Prius!

Ah, but does it have an electric motor as well?  ;D

It sure is big though!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

some more progress shots of the Hubcap............



the underside showing the tweaked undercart..

As you may be able to see, I've been playing around with highlighting the panel lines on the underside. I'm not quite sure it sits that well on this beast so I've left the upper surfaces alone for now.

And finally a family photo.

The smaller saucer is the Wave kit of the Haunebu I. Just shows how big the Haunebu II really is as a 72nd scale model.

True  :thumbsup:, but would it be impolite to mention the snowmen in the background ? Does this confirm the secret Antarctic Base conspiracy theories ?  ;)

 Oh come on Chris.  Surely you know that Snowmen only live at the North Pole.
