  1. Great minds think alike Dave..... or perhaps it is just that fools seldom differ.
  2. Good to see that you have signed up for this buddy, but where the heck are you going to find a Wright Flyer? Montgolfier balloon for me.
  3. Yes, of course I did mate , of course I did.
  4. A slight thread drift if I may. Just before Mrs N and I were married, I had been having problems with my distance vision and decided that after our wedding I would go for an eye test. To cut a long story short, four weeks later I had the test and needed glasses. A couple of weeks after the test I picked up my new specs and went home to my new wife. Caron was quite keen to see how the vision correction apparatus looked, not having seen them up to this point. As I walked in through the door, the first words out of my mouth were 'Good God! I haven't married you have I?'. She has had to put up with quite a lot of such abuse over the past 35+ years.
  5. What a splendid looking Spitfire Z. Lovely job, well done matey.
  6. Nice start bud, good to see that the old 1/144 peepers are still in working order.
  7. Hawker Hunter T.8

    I made some more progress on this one yesterday and I masked up for the orange colour. I think that it would have been better to have applied this first, it would certainly have made it easier to mask off. This was followed by some of Hataka's Luminous Orange (boy is that bright ) and it was unmasked once everything had dried. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr Inevitably, there are a couple of small areas of paint creep that will need some touch up, but the main painting is almost complete now.

    Cheers Col. It plays havoc with the old fingers though. Yes, it is a shame that the smaller tanks were not included James, but to be fair to Mark1 they were not in the original Revell kit either.
  9. Boeing 737-300 - WP's Simpsons

    Thanks for the comments guys. Apologies for the lack of updates, I have had some domestic chores to sort over the past week. I did manage to squeeze a bit of modelling time in over the weekend though and I made a start on adding the decals. I bought this set some time ago and they are sized for the Minicraft kit, but they can be used on Daco's kit with some trimming and adjustment. After adding the main decals and leaving them overnight to dry I cracked on with the cockpit and cabin windows using a set of Authentic Airliner decals for both. I'll try and make a start on the doors tomorrow, but with an improvement in the weather heading our way, gardening duties may be on the cards. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr

    Plenty of ordnance there Cliff, that little lot would make quite a hole. Do you do swimming pools?

    Now that's great idea Ray, Homer J for president.

    Apologies for the late response Jimbob, I've just noticed that you have managed a couple of updates since I last checked in. It may be slow progress but the quality is up there with the rest of the build. It's coming along very nicely, so keep going and I'll keep an eye out for more updates.
  13. Thanks Rich. You may have noticed that I have had to add the wingtip launch rails back on, having discovered that Bu.No. 165166 was an F/A-18F used as a development aircraft for the EA-18G programme. The only photos I have been able to find show this aircraft without the EA-18G specific wingtip equipment.
