  1. From Failure to Failure

    Sorry for lack of updates, general exhaustion and lack of mojo means I have made no progress.
  2. Bloody brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. words fail me Brilliant. therre really is no end to this mans talents. Speechless. Not sure I dare tell him, but I bet he's slugging wine with a big cheesy grin. He bloody should be.

    Really coming to life now!
  4. Benedikt, your English is fine. What’s charming is your accent comes across in what you write. Sure, it might not be perfectly “correct” but English is pretty flexible and we understand your meaning perfectly well. However, your last post written by a native speaker might have read: “Thank you, much appreciated, if you’d like to! I don't always know where the difficulty lies.” There are other bits which could change, and we could argue all day about what is correct or not! Back on topic, Ced you’re a marvel. I don’t know how you find the energy to constantly push your knowledge envelope the way you do, but it’s inspirational and all power to your elbow. Once you’ve conquered this, what’s next on the agenda?

    Condolences to Mrs P, secret congratulations to Mr P,
  6. What have you purchased / been gifted

    I'm waiting eagerly for mine to arrive so I can experiment. Meanwhile, the black dog loomed large in my morning, but as I drove towards Edinburgh, the first rays of sunlight beginning to break over the Pentlands, and Elgar's Nimrod swelling out of the car stereo, I was moved to reflect that what i was gifted was that moment, and that, however miserable I might feel otherwise, for those few minutes I could be lost in the moment, happy. Not the usual kind of gift we reflect on, on here, but it was very valuable nonetheless. Then I arrived at the office to learn that our Technician, only lately finished up for maternity leave, had had two beautiful baby boys last night. Another kind of gift.

  7. I use old fashioned tube cement for mine at the sprockets, gave some grip but also some fiddle time to adjust. Must remember to leave the sprockets free to move next time, top tip that @Yorkshire man

    And I probably mean deform rather than flex. Which is why I am not an engineer. In simple terms will a 3mm rod support a plane or do I need something thicker? Why 3mm? Because it (or the imperial equivalent) works as a metal bar for supporting a 1/72 plane, with minimal alterations/visual instrusion,my reservation about the acrylic rod is that it will need to be much thicker to support the same load.

    Sorry, appreciate it was a silly question. What I’m driving at is would a 3mm rod support a 1/72 plane or would it flex under that load. I suspect it will flex

    Yours arrived quicker than mine. How bendy is the 3mm one? I went for square not round so the model wasn’t tempted to swivel under its own weight.
  11. How true, the wobbly Esci Abrams meant i had fitted the upper hull to keep everything in one piece - which meant fitting the links round the sprocket was... challenging.

    Welcome home Clan Procopius, splendidly earthy Mk I mate. I’m with Stew, sometimes we need a boost rather than the grinding challenge!
