    Hello again
    I’ll experiment with various options I have in mind and see what I can cope with. With hindsight I wish I’d spent more time on the window openings before I assembled the cabins as this will affect the frames
    Cheers brian

    Hi,
    As you brobably know I am a great believer in using plastic card or even the plastic from food containers.
    Maybe you could make them from plastic that way you could make them more true to scale.
    I think that no matter how you make them they will end up looking fantastic.
    Keep up the good work, I will be keeping my eye on your build.

    Martin.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Thank you Colin, it’s taken a lot of time but I have enjoyed the challenge. I think I have some part way through pictures, if I have them I may upload a separate post
    Thanks again

    Hello Martin
    Thank you for that, I’m not sure yet, I may end up using the frames supplied with the model although they are very thick. Not sure either how to tackle the windscreen surround.

    This is one of the best Fairey decks I have ever seen on a model, you should put it in its own listing. I applaud your workmanship and patience. Keep it up shipmate.
    Cheers Colin. πŸ‘

    Hi,
    I have just been looking at these photos again admiring the woodwork.
    Excellent job.
    How do you plan on doing the chrome window frames.?
    Perhaps I should wait and see.
