Thanks Gary. it does show up quite well, especially around the back end but also the length of the fuselage in front of the wings. If any one does look in can we have a B.2/6 first please :)

Seconded on the 1/72 B2/6. Come on Airfix, get that LIDAR plugged in! :)


I got the B.57 wheels cast up. What do you reckon?

Nope, just as you sent it mate. I joined the two halves together and cleaned up the join but that was it. You did a good job on the master. Think I'd better get a few cast up now as you've got a fleet-wide modification to do! ;)

Very nice build John.  Now I have to track down a FROG kit for some wings when I do my EB-57B.  Oh, and Gary, any chance you are selling copies of those wheels?  My current build is an OOB for a review but I have at least 2-3 more 57s I would like to get done sometime.

Thanks Phillip, if you want to go down the same route with a B.57 build I can send you a set of wings out, just let me know.
