  1. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    Ah a Lotus 7, beautiful! I was in Liverpool many years ago when I saw one waiting at a red light. A youngster in a Mini Cooper pulled up alongside and revved the engine loudly while looking at the Lutus driver. The youngster roared off as soon as the amber light came on but the Lutus waited for the green, and was still waiting for the Mini to arrive at the next lights about 150m away.
  2. Looking quite A-10ish now, shame about the fin but nothing you won’t be able to fix I’m sure. John

    It's often a cheque here ( the French love writing cheques ) and the smaller supermarkets do not have cheque printers so it has to be hand written, and yes they wait until the process is over before loading their bags. What I still havn't come to accept is that for most French people in rural areas, a visit to the supermarket is a social occasions!

    Standing in line waiting patiently when someone comes to your checkout from the other side to exchange/complain about a product when there is a customer service desk for exactly that purpose.
  5. Thanks Giorgio, I'm getting low on Tamiya tape,and it's redulously expensive here so I think I might try some. John
  6. I do have a Korean F-51 planned so the detail will be useful for me along with many other parts of this superb thread. The question of changing it was said " tongue in cheek " as we British say, meaning not entirely seriously. John
  7. How about a "What makes you happy" thread?

    Spring! It's finally sprung here, no rain for two days and none forecast for another week. I was out in one of our horse fields this morning checking the fence for any bad connections when a deer trotted across the next field, about 50m away. When it got to the tree line it stopped, looked at me then ambled off into the copse, another one the hunters missed. Hooray.
  8. Thanks to Laurent we are now saved a lot of small detail work, except for you of course. I think if you were building a Korean War F-51 ( too late to change? ) it would probably be OK to leave the cover off and expose all your lovely detail as some of the covers might have been lost or removed by then. Cheers John
  9. And what's special about the tape? ( I seem to have missed Ced's recommendation) John

    I can't help you with resizing I'm afraid, it's beyond my meagre IT skills. I've seen SWMBO doing it but it looks terribly complicated to me. John
  11. What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Two Redstarts having a dogfight, with lots of zooming and swooping.They were at it for about 10 minute, amazing watching them going through the tree branches without any collisions.I tried to get some pictures but they were just too fast to catch in the small field of view through a telephoto lens.
  12. I can only agree with all the above comments. I don't know how I've managed to miss this for so long being a Mustang fan, but I won't miss any more. Cheers John
  13. Good to see the fuselage coming together even though we've now lost sight of most of that lovely interior detail. John

    Watch out for the snotty butler. John
  15. What are you reading?

    Just started Upward and Onward, the biography of AVM John Howe, who flew Mustangs with the SAAF in Korea and went on the command the first RAF Lightning squadron ( No 74 ) and lead their magnificent aerobatic team.
