Well that's a second model finished within a week and the third this year  :blink: New record in build productivity for me  :party:

The Hurricane is now finished and posted  :drink:

I still have at least three that I am thinking are not too far of getting finished but I must start my P.1121 soon or I will not get that done in time.

Decided to do a little tidying up and reorganisation of part of my modelling bench seeing that I have cleared a couple of kits from it. Sounds simple and straight forward until I try sorting out a few of the kits I have sitting in the vicinity. I have now found that I have misplaced several Typhoon/Tempest/Fury conversion parts  :banghead:

The parts will be somewhere safe, put in a box so they are out of harms way but its just so dam frustrating and can get to the point of knocking my own self confidence out from under me  :-\

On the upside I have just found a conversion set to enable me to build a Mk1b or IIb Spitfire  :thumbsup:

Yippee  :cheers:  :party: found the missing parts in an old margarine tub where I had put them nice and safe. I also found four ejector seats for Hasegawa Tornado's  :tornado: Now I will have to go through all of those kits that I have to find which ones have the seats missing, that's all twelve boxes :blink:

That's me. I'm always putting things where "I know they won't get lost" Then I can't find it again
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

While doing some tidying up of the modelling bench and the surrounding area I found that I had a Frog Gloster Gladiator I had forgotten I had  :o

Modelling bench has been cleaned up, loads of detritus shovelled into the bin and all parts stored. Ok they are in to large margarine tubs but they are tidy for now  :blink:

Problem is that I have yet to find the Airways Sea Fury etched set I was going to use for my Gryphon and Sabre engined Furies  :banghead:

Now if that was a Monogram B-36 we would be serious impressed with the detritus levels  ;D

Actually I had been checking which of my dozen Hasegawa Tornado's were missing Ejector seats as I had previously found a few. The Tornado's were behind some other boxes one of which was for a Delta Nits 1/72 scale MiG 25 Recce Nose only the Frog Gladiator was inside. Totally complete kit of the gladiator will all the parts including the decals and instruction card, just without the plastic bag.

That's funny. I should dig through my cave one of these days and see what surprises therein lurk !

The B-36 is still in its box on top of the book case in the modelling room.

Realised that I can use the Frog Gladiator to make a Finnish Float plane version, if I want to.

I just found the missing etched brass set for the Fury's, makes me tempted to build the things although I have a pile of partly built models that I should get through first.

That he's in that Catch22 situation of lots of inspiration & temptation around at the moment with a shelf full of good intentions stalled to remind him to finish off something before jumping into more projects that will probably get stalled on the shelf of doom  :banghead:.

Of course you can box away some of those to avoid the guilt trip every time your tempted to start something new, as I suspect 3/4 of us all have a shelf full of hanger queens awaiting their next step in the build ladder  ;D.

Things are probably not helped as been having a discussion with Gondor about my HS-681 build and my data sources  ;D
