    Hi all

    This bird is finished , but I will have to wait until tomorrow to post the photos as my camera batteries are flatt :cry: :oops:

    As soon as I get new ones tomorrow I will download the photos.
    I did get this one in before they went.
    Its just a dry fit of the wheel wells.

    More as soon as the shop opens tomorrow

    Halford's 30 pack about £5.50 bird looks impressive

    I hate when the little light on the battery charge shows it's dying! :cry:

    And there are never any spares around when you need them...something about the little one's toys needing batteries, I suppose. :D

    She looks great, Rob!

    Can't wait to see more then you get re-charged. :wink:

    Cheers!

    Hi all

    The last set of photos of this build.

    The thing with the batteries is I have two racks of them, new and used. When the kids nick them to run toys they put the dead ones back in the new rack. You only find out that the rack is full of dead cells when you go to use them :roll:

    Anyway back to the photos :lol:

    The more time you spend on the construction of this plane the better it will be, I have put this together as fast as possible so it does not show the model at its best.

    The small bottle is to support the wing tip wheels while they dry as with the tank on they carry a bit of weight.

    If you want a nice big model for a few $ then this is the one to build and it could well stand a re-scale to a bigger size.

    I have had a lot of fun with it and Nobi has struck again with a very nice design.

    Thanks to Nobi I now have another fine model to add to my collection, the realy good thing is I can build it a load of times with it being a download.

    Well on to the next

    Well anything that photographs that close without a single joint showing must be well nigh perfect mate.

    I wish mine looked that good done at any speed.

    NOBI it's a great design.

    Great show, Rob!

    She came out great! Like Barry said, I can't see any joints and her lines flow so well, this build really does justice not only to Nobi's excellent design but to the original designers of this jet. Superb photos and a fantastic build! :D

    What's next? :wink:

    Cheers!
