Yes, it´s a Canberra. Cafe´s 1/200 recolor and adaption of 1/300 Bruno´s Canberra B2. I´ll build it in 1/100. Sorry for kidnaping the thread. That T-33 must get a very well construction.

It looks great Canberra and Neptune with the colors of my country the same. And do not worry, commenting on other topics distracts and do not realize so much of my mistakes. A greeting and thanks

Nice work on the Shooting Star. Nice to see another of Gerards model being built. It is like you said, the early models ( like my Tracker ) are a bit tricky and needs some brainwork,but they are not imposible to build. Your fuselage look more smooth than my Tracker. Nice work, there..I look forward to the completion.

Indeed, Gerard made some very intresting and unique models. / Wilhelm

Thanks Garry! Thanks Wilhem, what you say is not easy or impossible, I think it's about studying the pieces and the design well. And then adapt it to the construction system that is most comfortable for us. Gerard has several designs that are not seen very often , there are even some that I have never seen.

Nice nose! I'll bet that was a challenge. I am so glad I found Airdave's thread on his P-47 showing how to use the balls on a stick.

Greetings to all. A little more of the T33, the wings. Give me a good fight, first because I laminated the pieces in white cardboard and maybe it is very thick, in these planes in 1/50 or the tanks I always do this, because it gives more rigidity and avoids deformations. I never had problems with this, until the T33, the thickness complicated me for something I did not notice: the system that Gerard designed to close the wings. Usually (I do not remember doing it otherwise) we always close by the edge of flight. In this model you have to close by the leading edge, interesting and novel for me. Being thick the paper struggles enough to be able to join and shape it. The result I think is quite good, the coupling to the pieces structural was perfect, there were no problems except a few "lights" to join the fuselage to fill and then painted. Something strange that I noticed and made me doubt, I do not know if someone else saw it, look at Tony's model and then compare it with the of Willem and this, there is something strange, it made me doubt and I had to look r photos of the real plane to be sure. It's all for now, a few parts are missing but the most complicated is done. Thank you very much
