Hi All,
Im a newbie here but thought I should fill you in on the Angel. A crossed line maybe but it is in fact just under 30 inches tip to tail, more or less 1/24th scale. Stay tuned for updates !

Very nice. I love this craft. Best GA plane in my opinion. Actually Mark42 is making one of these too. A kit this large would be great.

What I meant was I have photos I took of Phil's Interceptor, not I have photos taken by or belonging to Phil. As this is Phil's baby, I don't want to steal his thunder but I'm happy to post them if Phil is still struggling with image hosting etc.

Hi All,
Just a quick update on the big Angel. I have now done the gun trough on the nose so the majority of the airframe structure is now finished. I am away for a few days so before I left lots of Tamiya filler was plastered on so it has time to set solid. The fun job of rubbing it all down faces me when I get back . After that it will all get a good coat of primer and will try and get some more piccies up.

Tigger.

Yes the unfinished interceptor blueprint I have IS the Angel.....copied it directly off my original. I'll scan it and get Chris to post it!

The UFO blueprint I did was of the middle sized one they made that was used most of the time.
Phil Rae
YES Chris....still struggling with image hosting....downloaded loads of stuff to my desktop today but didn't want to burden you with posting it 44 me!

Oh I think I misunderstood! The UFO has no scale....only a couple of shots in the show show it with other things u can scale from...my blueprint has a scale on it....pretty small raelly.....ooops REAlly

That is great It was never a totally believable interior from what I remember from the eps, so there's plenty of room for making it something special while still staying within the ball park as it were.

Hi All.
First off apologies for the lack of photos I promised, Needed to concentrate more on getting the beasty finished. Speaking of which....... It is Rcnut is in the process of doing the moulds as we speak reaoy to start casting resin. So it will be available in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime there are some later progress shots on my club websites on the bench section, have a look at www.harrowmodellingsociety.co.uk
