Hawker Typhoon for PSS - small progress
Whilst battling with the 3D printer on parts for other airframes, I've managed to get the cockpit fitted out, pilot in, and now the cockpit is on.  A major milestone for this aircraft, as that's the last bit of gluing done to the fuselage.  Paint is hopeful...

Back to building - Tiffie in the workshop
Well, after a few niggling repairs and updates to some airframes after the previous PSSA meet on the Orme (A10 wing dowel, U2 hole punctured in fus, spinner came off the Hurri, repair to Mustang wing where Shona knelt on it!), I'm back to building new aircr...

Hawker Hurricane mk iid JV-Z for PSS - it flies!
Well, she flies, and flies well.  At just over the 4lb mark, the penetration and and energy retention is quite impressive, and will easily leave a JP and A4 (previous mass builds) in it's wake in the same conditions! I also maidened the SBD - which I was pl...

PSS 2018 Mass Build - Hawker Hurricane mk iid
I haven't really covered this aircraft on the blog here, as mostly I kept a forum thread updated with progress instead.  That can be viewed, here . JV-Z was a 6 Squadron aircraft, and part of the "Desert Air Force", or 1st Tactical Air Force as it later bec...

The Antonov flies!
The big beastie took to the air without problems last week, the re-maiden happening on the Long Mynd.  Nothing to report really, other than I need to stick some covering back down, and two of the engines need a rework where the release tabs have cracked off...

Still here, still workshopping! PSS Black Horse P51
Exactly 2 months since my last update, wow.  Time flies when you're having fun I guess!  Some of the PSS events have been a waste of time due to the continued high pressure dominance that has lead to one of our hottest summers ever, and the resultant zero w...

PSS Hawker Typhoon - paint prep
A fitting day to mention the Tiffie, as it's the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  On this day 75 years ago, the 2nd Tactical Air Force were heavily engaged over the skies of France with rocket and bomb attacks on enemy positions, and vehicles in front of the lin...

PSS Antonov An-225 - complete!
It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been on-and-off on the building front due to other life stuff.  The 225 is now complete, balanced, and ready to fly.  Not quite true I guess, as I haven't added the thrust tubes onto the back of the engines as y...

PSS C17, Antonov, and Typhoon progress
Work is progressing well on all sorts of parts.  I've been on a bit of a glassing binge recently, getting a few parts done every night if I can.  Here the Typhoon ailerons, C17 elevators and wingtips are all getting their first sides glassed : Then the seco...
