Yep, it sure has, Ian. Thanks for that.
The Vampire, being in 1/72 is a lot smaller than I remember. I just had a look at it. Haven't heard them in real life, but wouldn't mind at all.
I have the Roden Gloster Gladiator as well, I've heard good things about the kit, so lets hope it is.
A shame with your 1/72 Gladiator... I guess that sorta thing is almost expected to happen with younger siblings.
On the bench now I still have the Reno Racers
They are going a bit slow. The red paint I had ordered had too much orange in it (Vallejo Scarlet). To make sure I just ordered several reds now. Tested out liquid mask for the canopy. What a fiddling job to get it right. The result will show after I peel off. Very excited to see how it turns out. As I'm again awaiting paint they're put on hold.
I've started the Torpedo Boat and Destroyer from 1/400 Airfix Kriegsmarine set. However, It's NEVER a good idea to build two boats like this next to eachother. It's very easy to mix the sprues and tiny bits and pieces put aside for glue herding.
I should have marked them somehow for which kit they belong too
But I will figure it out.
Anyway, I got good use for the wood glue filling the gaps between the hull and deck. Put some on a toothpick and just smooth along. Nice and easy.
Normally I would have had a pic or two, but I completely forgot... getting old yeah..
Time for me bed now. Night folks.
