  1. Bill , you should have a folder like icon on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen. Click that and it 'should' open as 'This PC' - that's basically the W10 version of My Computer. If you can't see the icon, go to search (a circle next to the start button on my taskbar) and just enter 'This PC'. You can also click the 'start' button, scroll down to 'settings' and that gives you all the devices connected etc. Keith
  2. Fantastic model again Michael! I love all these weird and wonderful vehicles you keep coming up with! Great stuff! Keith

    Brilliant...!! Enjoy the Iwata Tony! I had to give the HP-CH a complete strip down and clean last week, and the design and precision of the engineering is lovely! (I really like the cheapo Neo to use, but it is completely agricultural in comparison!) Keith
  4. No Giorgio, it could be either correct or incorrect.... As I said, I was sorry I'd posted not having read your original post where you'd used clear blue painted sprue under a clear cover - in that case, on a real aircraft, the bulb would be green - as John rightly says a starboard nav. light must show green. Blue would be correct on some aircraft (& I agree the Toom in your pic above looks to have a blue cover) if they used a yellow bulb - that when energised makes the light show green. Other aircraft with green coloured covers would use a clear bulb. Or so I was told....!! (I believe that was when I was flying Bulldogs with the University Air Squadron & I was surprised to see they had blue starboard nav lights when shut down!) And then there are Harriers - remember the discussions in the thread of your lovely build of the Airfix kit?! Sorry to cause confusion! Keith

    Good thinking! I'd be tempted too!
  6. Airfix 2018

    Sold one for £15 in the Kit Swap at Telford last year as I didn't have room to keep two of them lanquishing in the stash any longer. Other one is still there...!! Only after they've done an 8, 14, 20, 24, 25, 33, 35, 37, 42, 50 & 52 though....!! It would be a fantastic collection, but just imagine the cost! Keith
  7. Are they on the top of your head? That's where my glasses always are when I 'lose' them, & ask swmbo if she's seen them.... Keith
  8. Interesting, I was wondering whether the contra-props were still wooden when Crisp mentioned weathering it. As others have already said Crisp, your airscrew looks magnificent - and the rest of the Seafire isn't far behind! Keith

    To be followed by the much wanted 1/24th Nimrod...!!
  10. There's more gaps than in my front teeth there Ced! Good luck with the filling - filing! Keith

    Yes. Your car will turn orange next time it rains....!! K

    Nice 'stormchaser' pics Tony! We had a fantastic metallic coppery looking sky here this morning, something to do with North African dust apparently. We've had that before, makes a heck of a mess on the car when the rain washes it out of the atmosphere! Some very neat scribing there too! Must admit the thought of scribing on foam had never occured to me! Glad you escaped the worst of Ophelia's wrath.... Keith

    Hope the wind wasn't too bad today Tony, & that you have power tonight..... Keith
  14. Again, that depends on the aircraft! If they use clear (or yellow!) bulbs, they'll have transparent red or green covers, if they use coloured bulbs they have clear ones....!! Keith Edit - sorry Giorgio, I'd managed to miss your update so posted the last two posts before I saw today's excellent update - please ignore my waffling...!!
  15. I believe that actually depends on the colour of the bulb (or lamp I think is the correct term) used. If an aircraft has 'blue' starboard nav lights (& I've seen a few), the 'bulb' is yellow - so it shows green. If the light is green, it has a clear bulb. That's what I was told by a techie a lonnnnnggg time ago, anyway! I tend to usually hedge my bets & mix clear green & blue, making a bluey-green! Keith
