  1. What kicked off the 'modern world?'

    Tough for me to pin it to one singular happening or invention or person. A lot of things mentioned here were well established in other cultures and civilisations way before western culture was even getting started. My top pick would be : War. Reading books like 'Guns , Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond and his other books , shows the development of a number of relevant accomplishments. There was also a show called 'Connections' that had some superb examples of how certain things evolved, a really funny and informative program.
  2. Wingnut Wings Bristol F.2b closed cowling fit

    Never had any real probs with the kit. If you coat the inside of the cowling parts with a felt pen ( remember that the ink is usually veg oil based , so clean it off diligently ) then offer up the parts to the fuse , you can see the marks left on the felt pen coating where contact occurs. Start material removal in those areas first and the parts will begin to fit. I've added a lot of build pics on the fbook page link below.
  3. Thank you Natter. Almost a year to answer too!
  4. I'm a disgrace...

    WTF?...extremely disgraceful. I would have at least bought a bottle of paint to remember the occasion. Now the only memory you have is regrettably quite lame.
  5. Italeri 1/9th scale Triumph 3HW motorcycle

    nw's ...and ,of course , you'll try it on the sprue first..
  6. Italeri 1/9th scale Triumph 3HW motorcycle

    The key to painting that vinyl stuff is a hot mix primer coat to start.. 90% laqs and 10% primer. Spray fast at high pressure , don't load up the primer , thin coats to bite into the material. Should take any paint after that.
  7. Italeri 1/9th scale Triumph 3HW motorcycle

    Looks good. Need more pics. and the front fender is on backwards!
  8. Thanks for that. It is born of a positive thought, nothing malicious. The forum will come out of this with a new 'haircut' , we'll all feel better and be able to get on with things. I look forward to it. You can watch Kitmakers decision on my 'EXPEDITE DELETE' thread there. Thank you.
  9. On Kitmaker I have asked admin to delete all of my threads , as I think they are pretty much useless now,. I will prolly ask the same here after they come to their decision. I don't see any need for threads to be ads for pb .
  10. "No" - I don't believe that for a second. It was thought through as far as was possible. Or there would have been a quicker answer to that , the pause was indicative of the unknown/unprecedented LEVEL of backlash. Better management would have offered a timeline for the withdrawal of service. But , I guess , barfbucket subscribes to a 'rip the bandage off quickly ' kinda management style.
  11. 1/48 Hawker Tempest

    Nicely done. Not to slag anyone but the resin set can be problematic,
  12. And that's 4 pints of English beer ! I was privileged to work with a true signp[ainter for a year or so. As the computer came into the sign industry he was put out of work , extremely sad to see. I also took the last TQ sign course , on the last day we were told that we would be unemployable. Nice. I can tell you also , stay away from the bags of ink that some peeps sell , I use only Roland cartridges in my 300.
  13. My printers: Roland SP 300 30" digital. Ricoh 3110 Sublimation printer. Sawgrass SG800 Sublimation printer. HP CP1215 Laser The Roland is an excellent printer , almost 15 years old and still works mint. Sublimation has to be one of the top computer scams ever , printers use up ink cleaning and wasting ink criminally , almost. The HP does some weird stuff but eventually produces the work. Part of graphic arts production so I need them all , warts , ink wasting , artist conniptions all included! People don't believe that I can make signs and do artwork without the computer, and I miss the days when sign shops had traditionally talented people working them.
  14. The Big Red Lo

    CC & BD Thank you. Looks like PB has self destructed. I wont go and re-do alla the pics on this thread as they can be seen on my fbook page. I'll try to go on with (its so tough) another pic hosting site. I was off of here for a while , getting caught up in a problem with whoever is attacking model forums Not sure why they have time for that , with so many other worthwhile things to do... My really busy tourist time of year , the Lo and a few others in my peripheral vision , but no modelling getting done. Thanks for looking.
