Or it could have been the red wine....

Hi All,

I have been watching all the posts on here, loads of fantastic work happening, to many temptations, especially with ebay a click away.... I must not buy I must not buy!

Some more work on the Viking, I wasn't happy with the wing alignment, so I tried the hot water trick and left it in a little to long... long enough to bend it double! so after a few attempts of bending it back and some (more) wine I decided the easiest way to hide the damage was to cut the wings off!!
After several attempts to create the wing fold I am now here...

I need to add more gubbins to the wing fold area, but I am happy that the wings fold in the right directions and don't look too warped any more, I think I have even managed to hide the drunken surgery!

Thanks for looking. I hope to keep the updates more regular.

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

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  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.
