Ya I love Summer here....Winter however SUKS!!

Been making a mess in Kitchen building Superstructure out of 1.5mm & 2mm Styrene. Once I redid plans I was quickly able 2 assembly the piece's I cut out last night. I still need 2 make up some smaller bits for Bridge wing plating, front & rear bridge window frames and roof sections. But its looking how I wanted it so I'm Happy!!

Thx Andrew!,
Ya the Tug had been put aside for a fair while and all the wet weather down here had me stuck inside... So out came the styrene sheet for a bit of scratchbuilding!
Once you've done a bit of styrene building it gets easier 2 work out what you want 2 make... but still easy 2 screw up 30mins of work with a simple mistake!! DOH!!
Been trying 2 cut out windows for aft bridge.....end up throwing what i'd done in the scrap box!! will try again 2mora!!

Cheers Bruce

Don't have any mate. I ended up making the rear window frame out of 2x1.5mm rectangle styrene, now need 2 make up side window frames once the glue has set .

was wondering about that thought maybe with your affection for HH-60's (and your budding air wing(s)), that maybe it was a hangar back there....
