Just like Mr. Mad, my interest in the Roland was sparked when I was a nipper from the Airfix box art, but I never built it because as a young teen I had certain standards to live up to – build a WWI plane You must be mad! Even school boys have standards. I've grown up now (mostly) and it's finally time to build one. I've been looking at the contents of this kit for a few weeks thinking “How am I going to do that?” and after playing around with it, it ends up done – accidentally of course . It's own up time. I've done the exhaust thingy (it need some drillin); pierced one bulkhead and I've just generally cleaned up some of the parts. I've experimented with unnatural things like rigging, soft furnishing and transmuting plastic into wood using only the power of paint - but not yet on the kit parts themselves, in order to preserve the sanctity of the group build rules. I thought that we were supposed to prove that I haven't progressed any further by, for example posing the sprues with that days newspaper, sort of 'holding for ransom' style; or with the date showing on your top of the range, super-smart moby phone – I'm sure I've seen that before somewhere (I wonder where?) perhaps you're more trusting here? Tamiya was interested in producing a kit of my phone – to add to their dinosaur range, so I'm glad I don't have to show my moby embarrassment. Anyway I'll finally stop waffling and give you the sprue shot: And these are the kit parts that I've messed with so far, looks like I still need to clean up the bulkhead a bit: I'd like to do a vehicle to go with it, but German, WWI, 1/48 & affordable - apparently I want the moon on a stick. I'm not a fast worker, so they’ll be plenty of time for naps, and remember – if you don't raise your hopes you won't be disappointed. Thanks for looking Gorby
