  1. Convair xfy-1 pogo

    Welcome aboard Jonny, the more the merrier. The parts in my kit were rather "flashy" too, and mine is a more recent boxing. Mind you, I found that once the flash is removed, the parts fit together surprisingly well. You're right on the Cockpit, or the lack of, it needs a total refit. What is there, from what I can see, seems to be a total work of fiction. There are some good pics in the book, so a reasonable facsimile shouldn't be too hard to reproduce. All I can suggest is dive in, and have fun! Matt

    Hi chaps. Been a while since I updated this build. I have been waiting for the aforementioned book to arrive. I finally have it in my sweaty mitts, so work will recommence shortly. Matt
  3. Watch UK Television, "60's.

    When I was a kid (late 70's early 80's) I used to enjoy watching George formby films on telly. Also enjoyed the will hay's films too. They did seem to do the rounds a lot. Matt
  4. 2018 Huddersfield Show

    I must admit I also thought the show was a bit light on traders too. On a side note, did anyone else notice one of the traders had a kit of Mr Campbell's bluebird? Had a look, as it peaked my interest, but was put off slightly by the price. Only £850!
  5. Heating the new man cave

    I've had a free standing halogen heater. Didn't get on with it. It rotated on the stand, with a sweep like a fan, gave out impressive amounts of heat. Trouble was although it gave out loads of heat when it was pointing at you it never seemed to have the clout to warm a decent sized room. The fan heater in our electric fire on the other hand warmed the room quite quickly. Don't know how much it made the leccy meter spin though, never checked. Matt

    I'm just sorry I didn't get chance to stop and talk to any club/forum members. My wife was with me and seemed intent on getting in around and out in record time. Think I need to join a club and spend the day there. Matt

    Just got back, great fun was had and money changed hands. This is my little haul... Original airfix slave 1,box is a bit used, but the plastic is fine. Purchased for the princely sum of £35. Pegasus haunebu saucer. Foil wrapped and brand new £25. Jlc razor saw, with the spacer attachments and 2 spare blades. £20. Also got a pot of Mr hobby edsg for the sea vixen I'm building.
  8. Any ps4 guru's out there?

    My phone, my wife's iPad and tablet, my nephews pc. There isn't usually a problem with the other devices @Plasto as it happens when I'm in the house on my home, and nothing else is turned on. It's got me stumped and Google isn't much help either. It's strange that it prevents me reconnecting the joy pads until I power down the console.
  9. Any ps4 guru's out there?

    Hi chaps. Any one out there knowledgeable on ps4 problems? Just recently I've started having trouble with my playstation. I have been watching programmes on Amazon prime and Netflix. After a while the program freezes up and I get the message below pop up.... The trouble is it's causing my ps4 to lock up. The controllers turn off and won't turn back on. I can't do anything except hold the power button in to put it in rest mode, after which it all works again. I've tried rebuilding the database, but that hasn't solved the problem. Can anyone help? I'm on sky Fibre, and my other devices don't have any problems. Matt
  10. Taking the p? Maybe.

    Dennis you're not looking foolish to me, and definitely not paranoid. Perhaps the right person has happened upon your build who really appreciates your work. Matt

    I was going to go to the Bolton show, but it was my weekend to work. Luckily I'm not working next weekend.

    Roll on next Sunday, looking forward to going. Got a load of money, that's starting to burn a hole in my pocket. Matt
  14. Sea vixen faw.1 intake colours

    Thanks for the advice guys. I was rather presuming they would be white except the lip, until I saw the faw.2 were black. Threw me a bit of a curve ball to be honest. I suppose I could cheat and just go down the fod cover route, but seems a shame to hide the intakes and compressor faces. Matt
  15. Sea vixen faw.1 intake colours

    Hi chaps. I'm building the 72nd scale cyber hobbies sea vixen faw.1 . I'm ready to button up the fuselage, but I need to sort out the intake trunking first. The instructions are rubbish, and apart from a colour call out on the Cockpit (black), there are absolutely no other references made. I've looked on Google, and the walk round section on here, but can't find any images of the intakes. What colour were they painted? All the images I can find of the faw.1 have fod covers in place, and any others are of faw.2 aircraft. Would it be safe to assume the faw.1 are the same as the faw.2? The faw.2 look to have a lip of esdg at the entry, then seem to be black down the the compressor face. Is this correct? Any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you. Matt
