That was an awful day Nigel!
The tail broken in the car strikes home as I knocked the fin off my Spitfire once getting it out of the car at the flying site. Ruined my flying day.
If I break a model I get really annoyed with myself mainly because I don't really want to be repairing --- I want to be building something new.
Still as others have mentioned you can always look at a repair job as an opportunity to "refine and improve" the model .
On the subject of " building something new" I spent yesterday taping all the remaining plan sheets together to give a fuselage top and side view and to produce the fuselage and wing rib former patterns.
I re-drew the nacelle patterns and enlarged them to be closer to actual scale and now I need to make a trip to the city to get hold of the EPS foam sheet.
The size of the nacelles is concerning as they are as big as the fuselage on some of my past efforts.
