Hi
Like what you are doing, just what I have been waiting for.
Will this be sold as a set or Sky1 and the Diver section sold separately?
I take it this will be sold though the new webs site?.
Can't wait to see it finished.
Thanks
Frank

That looks great. I just love the shape of Skydiver. Comet Miniatures list a 3ft. Studio 2 kit resin. Is this the one? Is sky one the other foot?

Default Conning tower

Just put some pics of the finished conning tower on the site, there will be a top part to go on the conning tower to finish it off. That will be a poly resin bit. Bear in mind all parts that you see will still need final finishing before moulding.
The kit will be made available however people want it. Skydiver, Sky 1 or both.

Engines next!

Done the engine master (Needs tweaking still) Side Middle vents next, at least the messy filler work has come to an end.
Pics of the engine.

Amazing Mamas.... or should I say 'Amamzing'. Good work too Maninblack, how you guys punch out masters so quickly leaves me awestruck.

Great work. I'll still be tweaking my 3 foot version as you chaps will be floating one along the Thames...
