You're sure you can't fix this? :-\

I, for one, would love to see it finished. :lol: :thumbsup:

Nope.... :-\ not possible. But plan to build a Malvern Mk2 one day...I got the recipy on how to build it. The 1/144 boing for the belly is in the stash. A Noratlas is coming in in a couple of weeks. on the lookout for a cheap B-36....It'll be build and finished one day.

Thanks Gentlemen!

As an alternate for the B-36, what about an XB/YB-49?
Though probably just as 'easy' to get... :unsure:

The others are a lot of fun, and some are also cool sideways/outside the box-thinking designs.  :thumbsup:
