Thanks!

Blimey
Thanks for the English lesson: I did not know this word, and Google Translate failed to translate it but Google/Reverso gave me the meaning ("Mince alors !" in French, which Google Translate says is "Gosh!" in English). I am not sure I will use it but I will understand when I hear it now, thanks!

Pretty close to what I intended, yes.  ;D
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! :)

AIUI "blimey" is derived from the exclamation "may god blind me!".

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

That's what I was always told and back in the 60's it was a word you didn't use in front of either of my Grand Mothers  :rolleyes:
Decals my @r$e!

Thanks for the extra language explanation :thumbsup:

While the Arado 681 paint is drying, I have started to separate parts of the LR-51 (both very old XLR-51 and modern LR-51D):  <_<

I have started to glue parts, but the 3 sides LeeRichards fuselage handling was uneasy... :-\

I have a little improved the wings (to fuselage junction): decreasing the span of the Mustang parts (sorry PR19_Kit) and improving the parallelism rear/front of the annular part. And adding putty on fuselages (to be completed). This is hard work :-\

Uh, shame on me for the wings... :-\

Now sanding fuselages, one side then the other one, then adding putty again: :unsure:

I have sanded again fuselages and I stop this, even if still imperfect (for the old plane, the side is not smooth on the front so this will be a canard simply <_<

Thanks a lot!

I have glued the second annular half wing on the Mustang fuselage, adding wheels to make it stand properly (not fallen down on the starboard wing tip) and I have added putty in front of the LeeRichards canopy: <_<
