    Modelling? I guess I'm a bit interested in that...

  1. It seems I'm writing 'R.I.P.' to someone on a weekly basis at the moment! But what great band The Allman Brothers were and yes, R.I.P. Gregg
  2. Re. the box art, it certainly looks like he's used the full length of that runway though. He's only just rotated before etc threshold of the other end!
  3. What can I add that has not already been said? Duncan, you are a star, Sir! The packaging is of a class seldom seen these days. A huge shout-out and yes, you've secured my business too. Your magnanimous gesture to Chris and Sophie was very thoughtful. A lovely, warm, fluffy, comforting piece of clothing to keep baby Jephcott warm at night. It's important to attend to our children's needs and I know that you have been hugely considerate whilst dealing with your customers; again, something that is lacking in today's society. Now, my son has passed his driving test and needs a car...
  4. Not exactly modelling related, more DIY, but I have also recently discovered why Hot Glue is so named....
  5. Fantastic news!! It's been great just reading the whole story of their delivery!! It's my birthday in April, who wants to buy me a pressie or two?
  6. Well, I could always tell her... Unless, of course, a couple of those Camels came my way!!
  7. And that's exactly why I binned my battery powered paint stirrer years ago Tony! As far as my own 'injury' goes, the good news is that the CA covered toothpick is NOT still attached to my tongue, although it did take a layer of skin off when I pulled it off. It stand for a couple of days but seems to be better now, especially after a cup of tea and a slice of carrot cake.
  8. At the bench today, continuing with rigging my WnW Sopwith Snipe, I licked the end of a toothpick.... ....which had just been used to apply CA.
  9. I was kidding about the paint knocking around... But when you see the aircraft parked next to each other, which I frequently do, the orange is the same.
  10. I can honestly say that when I fly into Toulouse and see the various aircraft there on the delivery apron, there is little to choose from between the Jetstar Orange and the colour of the aircraft I am in; namely an easyJet A320 / A319. So with that in mind I have just done a search and found that easyJet uses Pantone 021, as does Jetstar! It is also identical to the Smart Wings orange as well! as Windjet's too!! Maybe Airbus and Boeing just had a load of orange paint knocking around and gave it away for a good price!
  11. Yeah that's ok, I guess... In fact that might just be the best US Phantom I have ever seen! A brilliant piece of work.
  12. Damn these buckles! I love them! Another order on its way Bob!
  13. Thank you so much for the kind words chaps! I now have three days off and intend to get at least three more rigging lines done!
  14. Hi Duncan, Thanks for your kind words! I was going to give you a call next week regarding the future supply of WnW kits to Europe and an order etc. After all, I can't let Beardie and Chris Jephcott have all the stock to themselves! I'm not happy with the castor old staining / streaking on the undersides. This was done using AK streaking effects, but as these are enamel based, when trying to get a dot of the 'paint' to flow along the bottom of the fuselage by blowing it with the hairdryer, it simply dries as the solvent evaporates! I hope you get what I mean? What I need is to replicate this effect: I guess I'm going to have to use water based paints and find a stronger source of wind!
