  1. oh oh oh touché mon ami ! riposte s'il vous plait ?
  2. well, that's a step in the right direction
  3. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but have you tried using those plastic tweezers for handling ? Since the ends are pretty flexible, it wouldn't matter how much force you applied to the holding side of the tweezers, they would only be able to transmit a nominal amount of force to the end tips. I think you are doing a great job btw. I don't know if I would be as patient as you given the circumstances. and I am slowly trying to get back to it. Life has got in the way of things over the last few weeks but I am hoping that I can get back on the (iron) horse again very soon. This paint matching has proved to be the most troublesome aspect of the build so far. Whooodathunk that trying to get two colors of paint would have proven so difficult ? I reckon I've got at least 40 hours into trying to source the correct colors but I think I have a way forward now
  4. agreed - really starting to take on a filigree and shadow like composition
  5. hi George, - despite your current handling issues you certainly seem to be getting to grips (no pun intended) with modeling again.
  6. nice work on the soldering. I always try to wrap any "at danger" joints in wet tissue before I apply the heat - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
  7. you can skip half of it 'cos he doesn't tell you the full story until about page 17 !
  8. Great minds.... on a similar vein, I made two bottles of Atholl Brose this week and took them in to work today for a 3 - 5 project meeting with about half a dozen colleagues (thankfully, one of the most fun teams I've had the pleasure to work with) Both bottles were gone by about 4 and by 5 we had some of the best ideas ever conjured up for product development
  9. excellent information. Thanks Crisp. There are a few builds out there that are good. There are a few out there that are great, and there are but very few out there that really push the boundaries and to which modelers can point and say "this is an example of what I aspire to" - This is one of those builds.
  10. from what I'm seeing, it looks like that little lathe is far more capable than I first imagined. - which is great, 'cos I'd have felt really bad if you had squandered some hard earned spondoolies on a boat anchor.
  11. ... should probably also be able to replicate the stitching and various scuffs 'n' tears in glorious detail
  12. I know you've probably stated this somewhere back in this thread, but if you could provide part numbers or links to the actual rivets you used, that would probably be appreciated by several members of this forum, and not least, byme !
  13. nice idea and nice execution. It's all working together really well. What did you use for the floor ?
