    That’s nice progress, Allan!
    And I like the cast lead procedure!

  • Allan J Withers said 7 months, 1 week ago:

    Thanks Spiros, a bit fiddly but worth while I think !!

  • Erik Gjørup said 7 months, 1 week ago:

    I like the cast lead. Perhaps you would consider a tutorial over at the modelling stuff group? – I’ll have to give it a try as I have a lot of lead from one of those early radiowavesafe PC racks from my old tower. I used a “cut-a-lot-and-stuff-the-lot-in-whiteglue” procedure for a few recent builds, and it is messy. . .

    Thanks Erik, I’ll see what I can do !!

  • Allan J Withers said 7 months, 1 week ago:

    A little modification to the cockpit seats !!

    Allan, @kalamazoo
    This is a great addition to our ever growing Korean War group…………. My apologies for the late response, things have been a little hectic here lately and I have not had as much spare time available as I would like.

    I like how you have cast your own nose weight using lead. I’ll have to try doing that in the future, as I have another 1/48 scale Monogram B-25J planned, and it might also come in handy with the 1/48 Monogram B-24J that I have sitting idly at the moment.

    I can always tell one of your builds from the rest……….. This one is no exception. I welcome you to our Korean War group. Thanks for participating, and I look forward to your next installment.

    Thank you Louis, good to be here !!

  • Spiros Pendedekas said 7 months, 1 week ago:

    Nice modifications, Allan!
    All these “little” things “corrected” add that specific qualtiy to your builds!

  • Allan J Withers said 7 months ago:

    Thank you Spiros, interior ready to go in the fuselage.

  • George R Blair Jr said 7 months ago:

    Interior is looking great, Allan (@kalamazoo). How much weight do you figure you have added in the nose?

  • Allan J Withers said 7 months ago:

    Thanks George, the kit instructions call for 10g, so that’s about what I’ve given it, I didn’t do an assembly to check the balance so we’ll see !!

  • Allan J Withers said 7 months ago:

    Interior in and fuselage halves together.

  • Robert Royes said 7 months ago:

    Looking good, Allan, just noticed the Airfix build, cool blast from the past.

  • Erik Gjørup said 7 months ago:

    Always a major step to get the fuselage assembled. The interior look very nice.

  • Louis Gardner said 7 months ago:

    This is always a major turning point when the fuselage halves go together. It looks great Allan !!!
