If possible I'll cut clear perspex to size and then glue with Clearfix etc. Kristal Klear for smaller windows.

I may now have peaked and BOB modelling is nearing an end - just preparing you all.

Hi Dave,
I think you have done the Battle of Britain period proud...
... and in an area that very rarely (if ever) gets modelled... ground crew vehicles and buildings... AND figures!
The only consolation is that the Battle of Britain's loss will be some other area of modelling/history's gain...
It'll be interesting to see what takes your fancy and imagination next.

I'm sure whatever Zak, turns to next, knitting, crocheting, it will still be outstanding.

Not quite ready to knit yet, a few things to finish off.
More figures painted.
Enjoying the NAAFI van.
Maybe I will have to build an aircraft or two.

If you take up knitting Zak -- I have a mental image of you during the French Revolution, sitting by the guillotine with the other old biddies knitting and watching the aristocrats heads fall into the basket -- or will that image and spreading it around the web site get me into trouble - hohohohoho

Thanks Bill.
I am sorry to disappoint you, but I have decided to have another go at a Fordson Tractor.
Here is a start on the engine.

Looks like the Battle of Britain is not quite finished yet then in the Zak output!

Loved the NAAFI van...
... and essential item on any RAF airfield!

Wonderful.

Here are the rear wheels, they are 6 discs of 30thou plastic card stuck together.
The raised portions are plastic strip.
I have not decided how to do the treads yet.
