    It’s been on hold for a while as I was struggling to source more wire for the spokes that was suitable. I’ve finally found some, so it should be back on the bench once I’ve finished some other projects.

    I had a few people ask about doing a polishing video so I uploaded it today:

    Airfix 1/24 Spitfire MkVb

    Great work Angus, as I said on the completed build. I'm not that into planes, but I can really appreciate the work that goes into them and have done a few myself. I love the way you explain the steps and feel I'm learning new things along with you. What's next?
  6. Hi Pascal, this is great work. Apologies for not replying earlier. I love the effort you have put into this. The rods and weld lines particularly stand out, but the whole lot is a work of art. I look forward to the next updates.

    Thanks guys. I was aware of the sound problems. I've tried a few things, and think I've found a solution, I just forgot to implement it on the last couple of videos 🙄 Hopefully the next ones will be better.

    Thanks @mueller - Yes photos below.. Kit forks were replaced with the ones from the detail up set. Makes a nice improvement to any bike having the fork set to go with it. T2M nut was added on the left side. RB Motion banjo fitting was used along with some T2M braided line. I also ran some wire for the ABS sensor cable. Lots of PE bolt heads were used as well Top studio turned meta bolts were used for the mudguard fittings. I drilled out the bar ends and fitted a PE bolt head in there as well Clutch and brake levers were modified and painted to look loke aftermarket options. Again, lots of PE bolt heads and turned metal parts used Top Studio air valve painted to look like an anodised cap was fitted Lastly, I replaced the spring in the side stand to make it look more in scale

    Cheers @imster. I was pleased with the end result. I was winging it really so wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out.
