  1. Cats, they're taking over. Part 3

  2. Looking good Ced, a real nice finish. As for paints, I use acrylics mainly for the fact that the hobby room is the front room/living room. Smell is a factor, so I have to limit my spraying , especially primers/lacquers etc until she is busy else where. It`s not the type of thing to be in the same room as the spraying if I want to keep my "Bits" intact. LOL I am lucky that the good lady does the hobby to, otherwise things could be a lot harder. Simon.
  3. What is it with Spitfires and their wing fit, designed to drive you insane? Nice work Ced, looking great . Medium Sea Grey for the codes..with a tinge of yellow during Feb/March... Apparently a Memo from Headquarters recommended it so that they would blend in with the Daffodils growing around the Station Commanders out-house. Simon.
  4. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Yep, found 2 cheese sandwiches , a pork pie, mars bar and a packet of crisps in the Sunderland box. Simon.
  5. Yep, the perils of cutting off small parts Fnar Fnar. A tip that I was given is to use the large clear plastic bags the runners come in and cut the part(s) off in there. Keeps them within an easier search space. Simon.
  6. Smoky Bacon please K, I will nip out later for a kebab or pizza? Simon.
  7. Sod it!!! Late again... Room for one more at the bar? Nice tutorial on the art of mask cutting Ced. Out of my league but interesting all the same. Anyone got any crisps. Simon.
  8. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Yet again, nice work on the glazing Tony. When it comes to port holes, the Sunderland I am building had too many of them. The use of "Tupperware type boxes is almost essential with builds nowadays. What with eyesight not so good, and a failing memory , anything that can help is truly welcome LOL. Simon.
  9. Spitphoon 1/72 Airfix.

    I have must of got bonus time... Checked the pod fit and nose cone fit both look OK so onwards. Tail fin fitted, this has already had its inners painted black. Although a gap her but we will see what primer does.. Canopy next, C/A`d in place. Will fill the gap with Revell Contacta Clear later. So apart from a quick polish here and there + fit the nose wheel door she is ready for first priming. All comments welcome. Simon.
  10. Spitphoon 1/72 Airfix.

    Right, a little time on my hands... Pegs off and fill joins. This was the second attempt at filling, the first was poor. So I sanded down the filler and was left this. Also added wing tip pods, and the nose cone too. Forgot about the nose cone pic. Let them dry then fill any gaps. All comments welcome. Simon.
  11. Yet another fine build sir. A question for you though. What happens once the ceiling is full? Still, I am off to book a seat for the next "Ced Production" Simon.
  12. Catching Pictures in the Air

    Top banana Tony. Excellent work in the office. But how are you going to replicate the "Fluffy Dice" in the front windows? LOL Great thread sir, full of what we come to like, modeling and humour. Simon.
  13. What have you purchased / been gifted

    Happy birthday Sir, have a good one. Simon.
  14. Spitphoon 1/72 Airfix.

    She is not that bad but it can get a bit demanding at times, but I love her. As for the Tiffie, I hope to have her ready for priming soon, along with the Spitfire and some Sunderland bits as well. Just waiting for a decent weather window (and wife one too ) Simon.
  15. Spitphoon 1/72 Airfix.

    OK folks, time for Tiffie. Main U/C doors done for now. That now awaits a coat of primer but things must proceed quicker. All together now. The bits. Add some glue and pegs (4 of them) And from this view. Going to leave over night and then clean up later tomorrow. All comments welcome. Simon.
