I was going to say Ernie, you did well to knock that up in a few days! Like you say, great canvas to work on and will no doubt be a fab model when it’s done - there’s never any doubt you’ll get it to work.

I would really, really, REALLY like a large scale model of Crusader, for obvious reasons, but not an easy one to produce as a kit?

That Quicksilver, I'd agree with Ernie, not the four pointer. The four pointer was he "K7" with the four sponsons.

I've never been a very enthusiastic model maker except for the occasional Airfix Spitfire when I was much younger but that Miss Britain III in polished aluminium about three feet long would look rather nice. Hmmm. Wonder who could build such a thing.

Anyway, Steve. I know you have some detailed info on Crusader. Did you never build those flying balsa models as a kid? From what I've seen you have the plans to cut all your Crusader parts out of quarter ply and put that together on your dining room table.

Look in the mirror Bill, I can’t think of anyone with a better skill set[.]

I’m on the case with a 1/12 crusader - it’s 3rd in the queue at the moment!

I get too bored to be a good model maker, and having to do the same thing, over and over to make parts, eek!

I have some plans for a HUGE Napier Railton and I can't get the enthusiasm to start. Lazy sod!!

I still want to build a full size crusader but I seem to be the only one here who does. Bah!

I’ve had my Crusader plans blown up to 1/6 iirc (I may be wrong on this one), they’ve been on the wall for 3 or 4 years, waiting for me to get off my fat arse & finish my K7...
Light switch for scale lol
