Must say that I am pleased with the way my Airfix Valiant is going

Didn't do much in the cockpit, as you can't see that much anyway once the lid is on. The only area that required some fitting, was the bomb doors. On my kit, I found it best to leave No 2 bulkhead out, and to thin down the forward edge so it would line up with the forward fuselage, otherwise you will get a step.

When it was glued in place, I put No 2 bulkhead alongside the spot where it should go, and to the bomb doors. This makes the whole area stronger.

I put the 22 grams that Airfix called for in the nose, but am going to wait and see if it needs more. Spent no more than four hours doing this, the next step will be the wings.

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.
