Apologies to A.V.M Buttrick and my fellow AGB Squadron mates! Pilot Officer Preston has just returned to the airfield after being temporarily grounded on urgent family business and is highly chagrined indeed to have missed the Big Scramble on Saturday! Nevertheless, here is progress to date on The Big Spit. Starboard side cockpit is complete with gluing in of the dashboard and installation of landing gear controller hydraulic wires:

Wash will follow before closeup. Work is progressing on port side cockpit detail:

Dry fitting of various cockpit components. Thanks to Konrad S. for the tip on using disposable aluminum baking tins for bits such as the map case:

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
